New: Callie's Picks


The fourteenth edition of Callie's Picks was released in the Starplaza. Think the fact that it is the 14th edition shows me how much I've missed on here! It's based on a Punk Princess fashion theme, and I do like quite a few of the pieces. There's the odd one or two that can be bought with Starcoins as well. Do you guys like any of them?



Frankie Morello Tribute items:

Other items of interest:

Burberry Prorsum jacket


Balmain jacket


Versace dress


Balmain Jacket


Lanvin Choker

This is the best Callie's Picks so far! Well, maybe for some it may not be, but it really suits my style...
I already bought the jacket on the 4th manequin, the shorts and the shoes from the 5th one (I've been looking for them both for sooooooo long!), and also got myself the necklace from the 2nd manequin. Still thinking if I should buy the pink dress from the 5th manequin on the second page...
I am really happy about everything, BUT, my heart dropped when I saw the Hot Buys Bisou Jacket! I have paid 500 stardollars for mine! :'(
Anyways, it was a 10/10 for sure!

With this release lots of items gone off my wishlist - which is not good in all means anyway! If Callie's picks continues like this I'll consider not spending my time in the bazaar searching for clothes (which I'd enjoy anyway!), it's just doesn't seem to worth it anymore! I'd pay even higher prices when I consider something 'rare' but I don't want to waste my money when they get re-released soon anyway...


My first case was with a McQueen dress: I bought it originally for 53 dollars then a month later it got re-released for 200 COINS! Then here comes the second waste with the silver Mortal Kiss dress that I got for 38 dollars... now it costs 168 COINS... what the hell is going on?! This is insane...

I really hate the ''Callie's picks'' thing. I mean, I think it's nice that they're doign something but some stuff that are brought back are (or, well, were) worth a lot. Some hot buys are brought back and re-named, ahh, I don't know. I think that a lot of items just lost their true value.

Collection is good. I was looking for many of this items, but also wanted to sell some of them. Now, trubute items etc. lost their prices. -.- There is no reason to spend hours on bazaar anymore, becouse now everything can be back in cp. Hope they'll not re-relase DKNY and the others very rare collections.

I just am not crazy at all about any of the Callie's picks. I see that Stardoll is trying to ruin this whole concept of collecting. They want the money and not let us sellers and collectors get any of it. I have more of the items from this collection than any of the others, and I'm going to miss the specialness of them. Now everyone gets one--big deal.

Hi i am a regular commenter on USD and i agree with many it is a shame to see it in a mess it the new (twitter) but i've popped on to wish you good luck with the blog will pop in as i love hearing people's thoughts on items as i have learnt a lot from blogs yes USD. ok please do not shoot me but i am a collector and a snob so i can not stand this store with a passion.i go for the real brand .but i do understand we all can not afford the bazaar prices .so each to they own .but please i do not want callie bringing out all the stardoll at the city :( took me for ever to get most of that store lol xoxo

I have mixed feelings. On one hand I am very excited to see the Frankie Morello skirt that I don't have. On the other I just paid a lot more the top and feather skirt :P I do think it makes it harder for people to resell things and receive a good price, but that is probably what Stardoll wants. Make it more difficult for people to sell things at astronomical prices.

A few weeks ago, I bought the Balmain jacket for 56SD - I don't regret buying it - it has the original Evil Panda HB label and that means everything to me! I rather have the items with their original tags and designations.
On the other hand, I completely understand why so many ppl like this store, it gives them opportunity to buy items that otherwise they couldn't afford (me included) I just fear how far Stardoll will go with this...

Emorox4eva/Jenna said...

good point. I like that the ones I bought have the Frankie Morello Tribute tag on them. I also don't like that it doesn't tell you if you already on a Callie's pick because of this difference in the tags :(

Agus Vila said...

Collectors made impossible to average people to buy rares and some other nice old clothes so I kinda feel like Callie's pick is a good decision from Stardoll. Tag means nothing if you really like X clothes.

sdoreymenano said...

Exactly Jenna, if the items were like they were in Archive for example, they re-released some items and the tags changed to Archive, however you know what you own or not, because the ID's numbers were the same, right? It is difficult to know what we already have when we are at Stardoll for so many years!!

Agus Vila said...

Collectors made it nearly impossible to average members to have old and nice items, so I kinda like Callie's picks.

ilgd said...

i liked this Callie's picks. there are some pieces I had my eye on for some time but they were expensive in bazaar, so I finally got them! And I like the theme, even though the name sounds a bit cheesy :P

Emorox4eva/Jenna said...

Exactly! I have so much I don't remember buying some of the things lol.

Emorox4eva/Jenna said...

Well thank you for commenting. Your post helped us and USD :)

I can't believe this blog is back... it helped me in my early days on stardoll :D and i was so sad that it wasn't active anymore. Sooooo welcome back

Rosie/Rose_Jean said...

I already own most of the original items. I know I bought the red Balmain Hotbuys jacket when it was originally in Starplaza. The other Balmain Hotbuys jacket, my absolute favourite jacket on Stardoll, I bought for 278sd back in 2011 (Oh, what a difference in the price!). I don't care. I love that jacket, and it's been with me for years now, been through hundreds of outfits. I've had friends who collected Hotbuys who've spent even more on it than I did. Anyway, at least mine's got the original tag on it.

Rosie/Rose_Jean said...

Oh, and also for anybody who's interested, the Heavy Metal Choker (first floor, second froutfit from left) was originally from the Lanvin Tribute back in 2011. I already own it, but just in case anybody's wondering where it's from. I tried to find a picture of the real life version, but I can't seem to find it. Just in case anyone's interested, here's some similar necklaces from the same collection.

Rosie/Rose_Jean said...

Here. I had some trouble with the original reply to this. The ones I originally posted were from the wrong show, although both shows were very similar.
Anyway, I think I managed to find the actual real life version of the Heavy Metal Choker which was originally from the Lanvin Tribute back in 2011. The original was also 10sd and the re released version is only 9sd, so if anybody's interested in it, it's a good buy. I'm about 90% sure the picture below is the real life version of the choker, but as I said earlier, there are a lot of similar pieces.

Oh my god, I totally agree!

Agnes Agi Fischer said...

IN callie´s pick there is nothing new for me... I count in 3 month 8 Years stardoll without stopping playing..so it´s onnly nice to see what stardoll think the collectors need now...

sdoreymenano said...

I am at Stardoll since the beginning of 2008, also without stopping playing, however I was not active as I am now, so some things, I saw at other dolls and at blogs, but I don't have them, or I have them but I think I don't, so I really wish the numbers were not changed. Also I have more than 1 doll, so sometimes I think I already have the item at the other accounts but I only have them in my main account :( It is really difficult to know what we have when you have so many things, right?

sdoreymenano said...

I agree hun!! I prefer havinfg the original ones too :)

Emorox4eva/Jenna said...

Thank you for the help!

Emorox4eva/Jenna said...

Thank you!

Rosie/Rose_Jean said...

It's fine. I miss blogging, so I can't help but spam the comments of blogs with info that nobody cares about haha :)
Not to bother you, but could you delete the comment below this one? If you can. It was my original comment but for some reason it won't let me delete it, instead it just says a guest wrote it. Thanks.

Emorox4eva/Jenna said...

Lol. Well we love that kind of information here, so keep Commenting!

Wandathewitch said...

Callie should stop with these picks already!

Megan A said...

I think there are both pros and cons to to Callie's Picks. I like it because I missed out on a lot of the items on sale when they were released the first time

Kat Kwon (Corse4) said...

The clothes are really cute, but it would also be cute if Stardoll would actually make stuff EVERYONE can afford....

Carla Dunne said...

It's not my style but I think it's good for people who missed the opportunity to buy these but they are very overpriced.

Smiliuxxx said...

Why I didn't bought that sparkly skirt? Now I really want it!!
