Bisou and LE...

Hi, I'm Sarah (a.k.a blueberry-dream). Have you noticed Stardoll is basically releasing duplicates of LE in the Starplaza? Superstars are pissed off, because they paid lots of Stardollars for the LE, and in the next few weeks, duplicates are released for a much cheaper price! Jenna has already posted about the LE and Halloween Couture duplicates here. I noticed that these duplicates are mostly from Bisou.

Thanks to HOUPiSONFiRE, this duplicate has been hanging around in the StarPlaza for quite some time. It is the exact same replica of the LE Pink Flats! But they just have different colours. It sucks for SS people, especially LE Collectors, because they bought those flats for $50, and the duplicate is Non-SS, for $5!
And here is the Pretty In Pink Multi Layer Skirt. It looks a bit like the LE one, no? It doesn't look exactly the same, but still. The LE one is for $200 Stardollars, and the Pretty In Pink is for $9. I'm sure most of you prefer the LE one than the Pretty In Pink version, because when you try it on in the Starplaza - holy macaroni.This is the Bisou Ruffled Pocket Pants. I'm sure that most of you already know that it looks a bit like the LE Multi Zip Pants. The Bisou one for $7, and the LE one is worth $125.The pants and the skirt don't really look a like, but they are a bit similar. Stardoll might be cheating us - putting overpriced clothes in the Starplaza, making you buy them, and in the next few weeks, replicas are released for a more cheaper price.

There are many duplicates hanging around in the Starplaza, so let me know if you see one.

I think it is a bit of a rip-off. Although, I have to say, like everyone, I would prefer LE much more.

Can't stardoll think of some new ideas?

I don't really see the simularities between the shoes, they look nothing alike other than the shape, and how many ways are there of recreating a ballet pump? The skirts look even less alike than the shoes, the only simpularity is that they are both layered skirts. They have a different shape, a different colour, and a different pattern.
I don't mean to be rude, but I think people are just looking for something to complain about. LE was, and always will be worth a lot of money. There were only a few copies made of each item and so only a select group of the stardoll comunity was able to purchase the items. They are rare, and people will pay a lot of money just because of that fact.

Omg I was so peased when I couldn't buy the Marc Jacobs LE skirt, I wanted it so bad, damn you glitch...
Lol
Also the LE purple Marc Jacobs dress is being released as a hotbuy, just a bit different... LOL

I don't really see that they are similar.
Of course, some LE items look like an expensive and much more detailed version of the "normal stuff".
But that's the reason Stardoll made LE and why some people buy it ;)

Noulitsa said...

I prefer the LE clothrs (always)

RihannyX said...

Whel some of them are A little similiar...
but i think people buy LE stuff, becasue they're beatufull, and some because they know it's rare so...
I think LE is always going to be special...=)

Well, I understand your point, but really I would expect them to make the smart business decision to have a knock-off available in another store. I mean, SD is all about what's hot in fashon right now, and if they don't duplicate some of whats in LE, they wouldn't be doing that. I mean, what would we do without stores like Forever21, Urban Outfitters, and Arden B or Bebe that give us looks inspired from the runway at prices we can afford. Honestly, the knockoffs aren't near as fabulous as the LE ones and its very easy to tell. I don't think we have anything to worry about. LE is what it is and the other stores aren't really posing a threat. Besides, if you're creative enough, you don't have to drop that kind of money in LE just to say you look FAB. TRENDFOXX

I agree I don't see the similarities. This was a bad post.

Those shoes do look the same but not the skirts and the pants...

Catarinaa said...

Well only the shoe are similar

numbhabit@stardoll said...

I agree with Caroline/crazycaz07.

Bella said...

I think it's kinda unfair to let the people buy LE and then release the clothes for less and able to get for everyone.

But also the clothes will always stay LE, only a few people will have them, so they're still worth to buy.

Lillyandmile/Lilly said...

they look quite similar, i wouldn't have noticed the trousers:)
i don't think people should be angry... star doll might just be trying to make the people who didn't get a chance to buy the LE they're trying to give them a bit of happiness by making look-a likes
i don't think of this as a rip off really :)

yea the shoes and the pants do look similar, but i wouldnt buy simple looking items from LE anyways because of this issue.
I think it only good to buy LE items that really stand out.

sd_is_da_best said...

Yeah they look alike but it's kind of like real life. All high fashion designers have some sort of re-creation on the high street. Sometimes it makes them more wearable to the public. But I prefer the LE WAY better :)
Jingle bells, jingle bells........jingle all the way....lalalalalalala HEY hey jingle bells...........

Melissakuh said...

Hmm .. First of all, there is a little similarity, but that doesn't mean they are replicas of the LE items.
LE items will always have that special something to it, and people will always recognize the pieces if they are LE or not.
But I think Stardoll is actually doing something nice for people who aren't superstar and who aren't able to buy LE. If those people really liked LE, but aren't able to buy them, but they really want it and can buy it for less money, it's a great opportunity for them, I think.
We shouldn't always look something negative about Stardoll, Stardoll also has its positive sides.

Honestly, I don't think they're that similar, so it isn't that big of a deal. People would be able to recognize an LE item if they saw it rather than a plain old item. :/
But if the new and cheaper items look way similar to inspired by items, then it should be something to get mad about
:p

I Think It`s Unfair To The Others Who Actually Buy The LE (& Other Hard To Get Clothes) Because They Spend All Their Money On Them, But Now There`s Cheaper Versions!

But At The Same Time It`s Good, Because It Means People Don`t Feel The Pressure To Buy The LE To Look Good.

They're a little similar, and with all of the free and rereleased rares you can get these days, it is a bit of a ripoff.

26jen said...

That's rly annoying. Stardoll HATES us!

Cooldeer123 said...

you are wayy right !

Caroline. said...

Anonymous - Just because you don't really see the simularities (neither do I, as I said in my previous comment), but it's incredibly rude to say it's a bad post just because you disagree with the writers opinon. Personally, I think this is a good post; well written and very informative. Next time, leave your name.

that is a rip off,


stardoll is getting really dumb, they cant come up with their own ideas. they just keep making replicas .

i agree, LE is 10 times better than the other ones.

ADJAJA/Anna said...

I bought both the Bisou Ruffled Pocket Pants and LE Multi Zip Pants. Even though they are alike, you can still use them in different ways depending on their flare(:
