Before we start, this is a rant, therefore it will be longer then most posts. I am NOT having a sale right now, so please don't ask me anything like that.
"For Sale; Cheap DKNY, Hotbuys, LE & More!!!"
The members of Stardoll hear the above on a daily basis. Whether someone writes it in your guestbook, or you see it on a broadcast. You'll likely think 'oh great, a sale, and cheap DKNY, Hotbuys & LE!', they click on that persons username, and go to their starbazaar. As the page loads, they think of how good it would be to have something valueable, and not have to pay a truckload of stardollars for it. But then the page loads, and they see for themselves that it's just not going to ever happen. Because the person they have visited is a normal member of Stardoll, who like most members, really does not grasp what cheap means.
CHEAP MEANS CHEAP.
One of the things most people rip off are Hotbuys.
Hotbuys have nothing special about them, except for the tiny little "hotbuy" written on the label.
They are average clothes, which should be sold for average prices.
Here is two pictures I took before.
The first is from someone's starbazaar. The second is from the actual starbazaar.
Now, any person would choose the first one, as it's cheaper, and you can keep your stardollars for yourself to buy other things (hopefully for a decent price).
What do you think the value of this dress is?
The value is what the original price was. The value will always be what the original price was. Because when this dress was released, that was the value then, and nothing can change it, because nothing has changed the dress. Even if it became a rare, the value wouldn't change. Because by being a "rare" or a "valuable", is only something of which people choose to think.
Do you know the 'scuba' dress originally from DKNY? The one that everyone on stardoll really wishes that they had?
Well, why is that valuable?Was it valuable to begin with?
The answer is no.
Oh, and also, there is another replica of the scuba dress. If this was made on Stardoll, what do you think would be more valuable? The pink or the Purple one?
I was just reading one of my friends blogs, lel1996stardollblog.wordpress.com (which is the third most visited website on my computer, beating my facebook account and email, both of which I check daily), and she has updated a "my views" post, and she had featured one of my comments!

*Lol, never thought about that Liz*
If you're wondering about what the comment was, here's a picture of it...
Honestly, her medoll = crap, my medoll = awesome.
Haha, thats just my opinion (but I think it's right).
Has anything like this ever happened to you? And what did you say?
Well guess what? This is the 655th post. Ok, it's not that much of a celebration, but I think thats pretty huge (well yeah, of course it's huge). So in celebration, I have decided to hold a little contest.

I love the new range of Styled Outfits Stardoll has bought out. They're like, slogan shirts, but not slogan shirts. THEY LOOK GOOD. I give the whole range four stars out of a possible five, because I don't really think the dresses are worth 20sd...
Stardoll released a new shop today. I don't like it at all. It's too, wedding-ish. The prices range from 5sd to 48sd and it also includes some rather overpriced interior items, including a carriage for 48sd. I give the shop a 1 and a half stars out of 5, due to the fact that the prices are ridiculous and that some of the pieces are just plain boring. I do like the second floor though. It has some pretty decent pieces in it. Here's what the shop looks like.
Sorry, the picture of the 4th floor wouldn't upload for some reason...
I made one of the most girl-iest outfits ever. Hope you like it!
Logged into Stardoll, and oh my gosh, i'm amazed... THEY HAVE A DECENT PICK OF THE DAY!! (Oh, my, gosh :O)
It's the Fudge Fluro Flash Choker, click here to get it in your Starplaza dressing room. It's 4sd, non-superstar, and can obviuosly be found in the Fudge store... Oh and btw Stardoll, it's "fluro", not "fluoro". Geez...
Do you like it? Please comment, it's getting lonely... Oh, and btw, we reached 35 followers today... Is it just me or am I using 'btw' a lot today?
Just wanted to explain why I have not been posting lately. Well, as it's the last week of holidays, teachers at my school like to bombard us with tons of homework and tests. I had a pretty packed week. Here's what happened...
Monday: Got up. Sick. Caught the bus to school. Double Maths class. English teacher gave us about 5 different assignments to do over the holidays. She also told us that the speech we were meant to present on Friday was now due on Wednesday. Caught bus home. Posted a bit on blog. Wrote a bit more of english presentation. Went to sleep.
Tuesday: Got up. Even sicker then yesterday. Caught the bus to school. Science teacher set us another project. Discovered that I forgot to pack my lunch. Went hungry for the rest of the day. Caught bus home. Slept.
Wednesday: Got up late. Forgot to have breakfast. Ran after the bus. Got to school late. Did english presentation and only got 15 marks out of a possible 20. Caught bus home. Slept.
Thursday: Got up. Caught the bus to school. Double Maths again. Lost my wallet. Had to do a 2km walk with my best friend because we didn't want to try out for the touch football team. Found wallet. Dropped plant I had to grow for science project. Found my wallet. Caught bus home. Slept.
Friday: Woke up. Still sick. Nearly missed bus again. Handed in history project. Luckily we had an extended lunch. Caught bus home. Cleaned out school bag. Worried about whether I would be able to complete all the homework we had been given...
I found some old items in Starplaza, that should have left by now. There are way more then the pictures that I have included, but it would be a really long post if I included them all. To find these items, go search>white in Starplaza search. They are all non-superstar.
Also, the KOHLS shirt above is an old Hotbuy. It doesn't say Hotbuy on the label, but it obviously is.
This months endangered species animal is the Horned Puffin, an beautiful sea bird which can be found on the coasts of Siberia, Alaska and British Columbia. They live in rock cavities and they mainly eat fish, but can also eat squid and crustaceans.
For those of you who read the Stardoll Handbook (it's a blog I write for), then you will know that I post about how to make an outfit. I thought I would post some of the outfits I make on my own blog too. Anyway, the idea is, you (the readers & followers) choose one item you want me to make an outfit with. That item must be in Starplaza. The item I am making an outfit now is the Glided Movement Top which is 28sd and from the PPQ store.
