Seen on FM-Style: Stratified Society

Hey, hey, hey!! Before we get on with this I'm going to confess something. I'm stealing this post from Mireia. She had it all prepared, all photos added, the task written, the little text we always put ready and the only thing she had left to do was actually writing it. I'm mean, I know... She did the "boring" part and now I'm taking it away. But I have just judged the final (OMG, OMG, OMG) and I couldn't resist! I was in a complete FM-Style mood. Hope you don't mind Mireia! Ok, now, let's see what happened on task 8!


If you want to follow the cycle closely you will need to join the club FM-Style on Stardoll. To show you a little of what's going on in case you don't know the fashion competitions we host there on the club, this time we have a special cycle (Cycle 14 omg, we're getting old). We got to 600 members, and to celebrate that we're hosting a team cycle, meaning contestants don't take part individually but in teams, forcing them to work together and deliver kind of coordinated entries.


Welcome to the first ever #TeamCycle !



Task 8: Stratified Society
This is the task before the semi-final. There are still 5 groups left, and the winner will be declared just in 2 more tasks. As in last task there was no elimination, this week will be a double elimination! We repeat what we said on last task: forget about the street style rule! It’s not necessary anymore. You can opt to do street style, but it can be editorial if you wish to do that.

That being said… Task 8, stratified society. Can you imagine what are we talking about? Low, middle and upper class. Those three different society classes must be reflected on your entries, each one done by a different member of the team.

You can choose to do it in the actual era, or go to the past for inspiration, that is totally your choice. The outfits should still have some cohesion, but coordination would not be necessary. You already know how this works. Wish you the best of luck!

DISCLAIMER: This is a form of speech, we are not dividing or criticizing people. The way you dress doesn’t particularly have to show which class you belong to. Just look to the inspiration album to see what we mean. We are referring to topics in here, not trying to offend anyone or any particular style. In fact the three outfits should be equally amazing no matter which class you’re representing.

Inspiration Album: 



So for me this task had two major difficulties:
1. Managing to make all three looks stylish and equally cool, no matter the social status they're representing.
2. Make the three of them look coordinated while make them different enough that you can clearly see which social status was thought for each one.

Not sure about the reason why this time we didn't have judges examples either, but anyway, the sisters always make up for it in the blog so... here it is! And with the beautiful gothic quarter of Barcelona as background ;)
For coordination we focused on the use of gold jewellery as depending on its looks (and quality) it can look either very elegant or very tacky. And a little touch of red, which I don't remember if it was planned or not but looks really good!




And these are the teams' entries, together with the score they got for this task:

1. Team KAL - 7.56

2. SHADES - 7.25

3. MAC TEAM - 6.63

4.  The Flaming Jalapeño Gang - 8.31

5. Sarcasm. - 8.56



This task brought many cool and interesting outfits. I am quite satisfied with what our teams presented though it's true that in some cases the difference between one class and the other is less obvious. After doing the example and seeing the contestants entries I am realising that the struggle is between middle class and high class, which tend to end up looking more similar. But anyway, here are my favourites!

- On first place of my personal podium, and being objective (at least I think I am, after all they won the task...), we have Sarcasm.! I love the outfits Jane and Sami created. Both lower class and high class are quite exaggerated looks which make the difference between the three classes clearer. And the tree are amazingly cool and they look good together, so GREAT!

- Second place goes to The Flaming Jalapeño Gang! The selection of colours Whitney, Lucía and Kelly used looks so lovely and they all look super cute with the background. I was hoping for something more extravagant and luxurious for the high class look, but still, an amazing task.

- And finally on my third place we have Team Kal (ok, just realised I completely agree with the results... it wasn't on purpose promise)! They worked really well on this task doing research and putting together a more meaningful task. Their outfits represent the three classes based on the blue collar, the white collar and the gold collar. Which is a concept for jobs I'm not going to be able to express correctly so if you're interested google it. Ana and Kat always do very well on the concept part, but in my opinion middle class and high class outfits were very similar and could be improved, so that's why they're on third place and not first... Cause I have to say it, I love a good well thought concept! ;)



If you read last review (check it HERE) you already know that a double elimination was coming. To make it fair the elimination was based in the media between the marks of task 7 and the marks of task 8, and that meant we had to say goodbye to MAC TEAM and Team Kal. Really sad for the sisters as we both lost one of our teams, but you can't argue with numbers and mathematics.


Coming up next: Task 9 (the semifinal)

Sisters in HotBuys: October 2017


Welcome back to our second Sisters in HotBuys post! Here comes our thorough review of what Stardoll has brought us for the month of autumn, pumpkin spice latte and Halloween.



HOT BUYS - October 2017



BURBERRY INSPIRED TARTAN WOOL PANTS (IT GIRLS, 22SD)
J: Not bad... The shape is nice and I like the tartan pattern. The colours are a little bit too bright for this kind of item in my opinion, less saturated colours would look better.
M: I do like the shaping, like high waisted pants, very tight and with those straps to put over or under (your choice) shoes. I haven't really seen anyone wearing these kind of pants, but I think they are really original and could look very cool. However, I agree with Judith and although I like tartan, I'm not sure about those vivid colours for those  pants. 

HIGH NECK DESIGNER SHIRT (Pretty n' Love, 23SD)
M: No. I'm not buying, too expensive and classic. It's too short, so you have to combine it with all high-waisted things or it will look weird. I don't like the golden clip either or the neckline. Pass!
J: Yeah, I agree. It's very classic for a basic item and very simple for a cool extravagant statement piece. It's not ugly but totally, meh!

NAVY KNITTED HALF CAPE (Bonjour Bizou, 17SD)
J: Oh. My. God. What is this? Why this shape? It doesn't make sense at all. Who would wear a scarf like this? It covers almost the whole outfit! And even with a different shape, the colour isn't special either and the scarf on itself doesn't have anything. A big NO, NO, NO. Still don't understand what were they thinking...
M: I would not even buy this even if it costed like 1 SD. I think that's all I have to say. 

CHLOE INSPIRED LIGHT BLUE GLASSES (IT Girls, 14SD)
M: I think I have a very little problem with glasses. At first when I saw them in the add I did not like them too much, but now putting them on my doll... They look very nice and cool. All glasses always give that cool vibe to any outfit, that's my problem. Like I NEED to add glasses to everything. I'm not buying at first, but I leave them there for later, and if you see them on the outfits below... that means I ended up purchasing. 😉
J: We might have to fight for this HotBuys sis... I like them too! I like that they have such a light shade, I think almost all the sunglasses I own have dark shades, and they look really nice. Sweet and with a kind of vintage touch. I quite like them and the price it's fair.

BURBERRY INSPIRED KNITTED SKIRT (Bonjour Bizou, 20SD)
J: Nice! I like this knitted texture and the shape looks good. I think it can make very cute and cozy outfits but still really fashionable. I'm not entirely sure about its possibilities though. I mean, I think I would tend to style it always in the same way and would end up not using it a lot for that reason. Don't think I'm going to buy but it's a nice item. Not like the scarf we got a few days ago. 
M: So cute! I know this dutch word that describes this skirt perfectly: GEZELLIG! I would definitely buy if I owned some more stardoll coins (oopsies I'm too lazy to pay). I think I will try an outfit on the plaza though, in case I love the final result I'll make sure to buy before it goes.

TARTAN RED T STRAP HEELS (Evil Panda, 16SD)
M: Those shoes doesn't cause any reaction on me. I like tartan. OK. I like that elegant shape. OK. Both together? OK. Am I buying? FOR WHAT? I don't know, it's not that I don't like them, but I don't like them. They are just... OK. 
J: I don't like them. If I wanted to wear tartan on my feet I would do it in socks or in stilettos, definitely not sandals. The design would have to be a lot more interesting to make me reconsider these are just average sandals looking weird with a tartan print on.

BURBERRY INSPIRED KNIT (IT Girls, 21SD)
J: I don't like it. I guess it's not bad but the colours are too vivid for my taste and for this kind of sweater. I like cozy sweaters to be more soft to the eyes... I don't know, it doesn't convince me much, but at least the graphics are good. 
M: It's not bad but it's not good either. Looks comfy, the pattern is very different from what we have going on in stardoll. But... not sure of the shape. Again, it will look cool with high-waisted thingies, or over dresses, like it was tucked on itself, but not with everything. I like my virtual clothes to be versatile and not limit me. They are already pretty limited, not like in real life, so please, don't limit me even more!

BOWLER INSPIRED HAT (Fallen Angel, 13SD)
M: What bothers me most with this hat is that  you can't actually wear any hair with it. In fact, it will be very complicated trying to find out what fits. And that drives me crazy when I'm styling my doll. The thing is that I like it, I don't own any hat like that and it's different and cool, but... I don't wanna have those hair problems and not being able to wear that hat just because my doll's hair don't fit in there. 
J: Totally true about being hard to fit any hairstyle underneath that. I think the hat it's nice but I see it so little and tiny. I'm guessing that was the intention but between that and the unfitting problems it's kind of ridiculous to me.

DESIGNER BROUGE BOOTIES (Fallen Angel, 17SD)
J: I like them. They're not my style at all and I'm not going to buy them for that but the shape is nice, the style is cool, the price is reasonable and the quality is perfect. I love all the little jewellery, sparkly details, looks really good.
M: Woho! Rocker booties. They remind me a lot of those Chloe booties that everyone was wearing couple years ago. They are cool and they can look cool in a casual outfit for sure, but I feel like I would have bought those, like... those two-three year ago. Not now. 

MOSS GREEN CHLOE INSPIRED BAG (Bonjour Bizou, 23SD)
M: No, I don't like it. It does not give any kind of feeling for me. I'm sure it does not look bad in outfits, but it's green, it's too rounded, and this wooden hang is not of my taste. Not buying.
J: I like the wooden hang but agree in everything else. Specially in the too rounded part, that's basically what is completely pulling me away.


THE OUTFITS.

Seen on FM-Style: The Feminist Club

Well hello there once again!
It's your OG sister (cause I was born first basically): Mireia. Right now we have a weekend off FM-Style as we're in the final, which consists in a two weeks deadline. So, as we're waiting for the fortunate and talented finalists to complete their entries, I'm gonna continue doing the recaps.

For task 7 we wanted the feminist vibe to be present, and we kinda did en educational task, for contestants to be creative and do research on feminism. As Judith mentioned on last review, at this point of the team cycle there was no score board, instead, the one who got the less amount of points from judges leave the competition at the end of the week. Continue reading to find out the task, what they did and who got out!


If you want to follow the cycle closely you will need to join the club FM-Style on Stardoll. To show you a little of what's going on in case you don't know the fashion competitions we host there on the club, this time we have a special cycle (Cycle 14 omg, we're getting old). We got to 600 members, and to celebrate that we're hosting a team cycle, meaning contestants don't take part individually but in teams, forcing them to work together and deliver kind of coordinated entries.


Welcome to the first ever #TeamCycle !



Task 7: The Feminist Club
3 tasks left girls. Things are getting more and more exciting. Forget about the street style rule! From now on, think EDITORIAL. The three tasks left will need of your creative skills and abilities to think beyond the outfit. But let’s not get ahead. Task 7 first.

For this task we are going to give you several photoshoot titles, all of them related with feminism. You must create three outfits for that title.

The way you decide to portray it, coordination or not, it’s completely up to you but as you already know the final picture must look good. If it’s needed you can write a group description explaining the concept or reasons behind your decisions in the task, so the judges can see exactly what you’re seeing.

That said, here are your titles. Pick one and state it in the task’s topic, each team must do a different one so first come, first serve.

TITLES:
- Girls just want to have fun
- Pink Ghetto
- Superwomen
- Goddess 2.0
- Breaking the glass ceiling

Inspiration Album: N/A



As we did not have tittles for judges, we did not post any judges' examples on this task. However, as Judith and myself are special, the Stylish Stardoll Sisters after all, we've done our own version. After the judging was done and everything. We decided to portray Pink Guetto, playing with the literal tittle and so adding guetto vibes to the outfits and the background, adding pink in all the outfits, but still keep them feminine and powerful.



And this is what the teams represented, together with the score they got for this task:

1. Team KAL "Pink Guetto" - 8.25

2. SHADES "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" - 9.15

3. MAC Team "Superwomen" - 6.55

4.  The Flaming Jalapeño Gang "Goddess 2.0" - 8.94

5. Sarcasm. - 8.01



For this task, I was somehow expecting more. Not better outfits, cause those entries are filled with them, but more meaning to the task, more feminism concepts involved in everyone's descriptions. They did it, I'm not complaining, but I was hoping for MORE. Here goes my favorites:

- First place has to go to SHADES. Their concept was not very original and different and deep, but the outfits and coordination they showed in the entry was amazing. Beata, Federico and Patricia got the 80s vibe they were going for, and I love the use of colours, very different from what we're used to see.

- The second place in my favorites goes to The Flaming Jalapeño Gang. They did their research as well but focusing on different goddesses from different cultures and they put those amazing gowns into the middle of the city which gives an amazing 2.0 feeling. Definitely, WhitneyLucia and Kelly are true style goddesses.

- And third place is for having in mind that thing I mentioned before, the deep concept. I loved how my own team Team KAL constructed their outfits from items that represented their ideals.  Ana and Kat did great. This is what I'm talking about taken out from their task description --> [...] The chains, belts and other restricting items were to represent the restrictive nature of pink ghetto, noticing that yet women still do not have full control of their occupations and how they are to be interpreted. [...] The colour silver as a motif to being  “second” and "inferior" in the working and societal class due to pink ghetto jobs and women being pigeonholed into the same “nurturing” and “fragile-minded” stereotype. This also ties in with the professional styled clothing as a signal for being ready for business, being ready to take on business and not having to throw away femininity, which is emphasized through the use of traditionally feminine items such as the colour pink, handbags and heels.


As the judging was not ready for Sunday, we decided to put out there Task 8 anyway, without feedback and scores. Like that, there was no possible elimination, so we announced what they all feared: double elimination for task 8. The results would be combined from Task 7 and Task 8, and the two groups with less points on these two tasks would be out.



Coming soon: Task 8 Review
maybe written by Judith ?

Seen on FM-Style: Nature of an icon

The day has finally come! I'm about to do my very first recap on the Team Cycle. And what a way to start, Task 6, when the elimination round started!

Beginning on task 6 the cycle started working like a regular cycle (except for the fact that they're participating in teams obviously) and contestants have to give their best every week cause if they let something slip, just one tiny mistake, they might end up being eliminated. No one is safe. 

It was also on task 6 when Mireia renovated our Inspiration Album, turning it into a Tumblr page, much more visual and a lot cooler to look at.

And what was the occasion? You might ask. What was task 6 about? What got one of the teams eliminated for the first time and which was this team? Well, you're about to see. 



If you want to follow the cycle closely you will need to join the club FM-Style on Stardoll. To show you a little of what's going on in case you don't know the fashion competitions we host there on the club, this time we have a special cycle (Cycle 14 omg, we're getting old). We got to 600 members, and to celebrate that we're hosting a team cycle, meaning contestants don't take part individually but in teams, forcing them to work together and deliver kind of coordinated entries.


Welcome to the first ever #TeamCycle !



Task 6: Nature of an icon
Trends come and go but in the fashion world there are some items that will always be a CLASSIC and a MUST in our wardrobes, like for example the three we're proposing for this task: LITTLE BLACK DRESS, WHITE BUTTON DOWN SHIRT & BLUE DENIM JEANS

Style the three iconic fashion pieces with an outfit, one iconic item per each member of the team. Also, there must be cohesion between the three outfits, you already know what that means by now, the final picture has to look good and make sense, not random.


Inspiration Album: 
 


Coaches and judges actually had to discuss wether or not to give examples for this task. We didn't want to limit the possibilities for the contestants. In the end we decided to make just a collaborative example featuring Lucy (SunnySidesSue) and yours truly, The Stylish Stardoll Sisters.



And this is what our teams presented and the mark they got for it:

1. Team KAL - 8.38

2. SHADES - 8.40

3. MAC TEAM - 7.44

4. The Flaming Jalapeño Gang - 8.88

5. The Hex Girls - 6.50

6. Sarcasm. - 7.81



And my favourites, the three teams that did better to style the nature of an icon for me were:

- My first place is reserved for Team KAL!! I'm amazed with Ana, Kat and Leigh (even if technically Leigh was missing on this task). They started the cycle being one of the teams with lower marks and something clicked on them and they haven't stopped improving! This task is proof! I love how they managed to make such cute and simple outfits but at the same time original and different from what you're used to see around stardoll. And their outfits together with the parisian background... isn't that the cutest thing ever? 

- My second place is occupied by The Flaming Jalapeño Gang. Absolutely love what Kelly, Whitney and Lucía did here. Amazing outfits, original, colourful and featuring the iconic basic items we gave and turning them into something so BOLD. Love the final picture and love almost every single detail. 

- Finally, third place goes to Sarcasm.! There are some issues I don't like, it's not a perfect entry, but the outfits are definitely FM-Style material! Aniyah, Samanta and Jane are looking on point under the task requirements and I would definitely like to steal some of those styling ideas so they deserved the bronze medal ;). 


That only leaves us with one thing to comment. Who was the eliminated team? 
You may have guessed it with seeing the marks, unfortunately we had to say goodbye to The Hex Girls. I loved their name and how they always had it in mind for when creating their entries. Sadly they seemed to forgot it was an elimination task and got a little bit too relaxed. Their outfits for task 6, though still nice, were a little bit common and way under the judges expectations for what these three girls can do, and so Task 6 became the last task for Camilla, Maurice and Ashley


See you soon in Task 7 review! 
and... join FM-Style  😉

Sisters in Hotbuys: September 2017


Welcome to a section that we had a little forgotten for a while! We have decided to bring back the HotBuys posts, but instead of creating one post per each item, we will wait for the month to end and publish a monthly recap. That recap is pretty much inspired by the one an only Maurice (kickherout), that does that on her blog: NOT SO MUCH, but the doll. The section is called: Hottest Buys of the Month. I highly suggest you take a look, she's funny, a fashion genius and a crazy buyer!

That being said, we start this section at the same time the school year starts: SEPTEMBER. Still keeping our young spirit even though we are not teens anymore...



HOT BUYS - September 2017




CUT OUT TURTLENECK (RIO, 16SD)
J: Well if you're a regular reader of TheSSS you already know that I'm extremely satisfied with this top. I talked about it, all it's advantages and made several outfits in this Shopping post HERE. I don't think it's necessary to say more. I find it super versatile and wearable, nice graphics and a fun different twist with the cut out. 
M: Judith did enough spam already? I don't think it's necessary to say more. Being serious for a moment: I like it, it's cute. However, not cute enough for me spending 16 SD on it. That's why I let Judith bought that, I had my  mind in other pieces... 😏

POLKA WRAP SKIRT (Pretty n' Love, 18SD)
M: What the hell is that? I don't like it at all. I'm sure some of you will wear it and I'll be like "OMG I didn't know you could do such amazing outfits with that skirt". But for know, and until someone changes my mind, I think this skirt is too granny like, too long, too dotted, too ruffled... NOT FOR ME. 
J: I know who will change your mind sis. Marta-43, have you seen THIS? I love her outfit honestly! That skirt didn't caught my attention until I saw our friend Marta wearing it. And since then I've seen some more outfits with it I have quite liked. Conclusion, I don't find it hideous, I think you can do pretty nice outfits with it, but yep, I'm not buying either, let's leave it for the geniuses. 😉

HOOP ON HOOP EARRINGS (Pretty n' Love, 10SD)
M: Hoola hoop, hoola hoola hoop, hoola hoola hoop, hoola cintura dura dura! (if you don't know what I'm saying click here, and then maybe you'll know). I like the shape, don't like the mix of gold and silver. Seems like Lucy (a.k.a. SunnySidesSue) did passed on me her metallic rule. Y nos fuímos!
J: The worst HotBuys of the month in my opinion. I don't like either that mixture of silver&gold plus I don't even like the shape and the graphics could be much better. We've all seen better shades of gold and better shades of silver in stardoll. Definitely a NO. 

PATENT RED MULES (RIO, 14SD)
M: SO CUTE! I love them! And I saw Kelly (Kelzsprouse_1) with some amazing outfits wearing those red mules when I was coaching The Flaming Jalapeño Gang and that made me fell in love with them even more. However, I didn't buy them, and then I thought that maybe they weren't for me. Like I love them, but I'm not sure if they fit my style... Does that make any sense?
J: Of course it makes sense, sis! Same here! They're interesting though. They are trendy, special and they let you play and mix them with different items to create never seen before shoes, which can be really, really cool. 

KNITTED CORSET TOP (IT Girls, 15SD)
J: I like this top quite a lot. I don't want it and haven't bought it cause I'm not sure it's an item for me, but I think it's cute! I was actually hoping my sis here would buy it, which I don't know if she has done or not, but if you haven't sis I encourage you to do it, I think you would do a cool outfit with it. I like it's colour, the square neck and the detail in the sleeves, the one thing that maybe puts me a bit off is the ending of the top, which I'm not so sure about.
M: Mine, mine, mine! The lord Your sis heard your prayers, and bought it. Cause she loves it, the colour (she has been quite a fan of red lately), the sleeves, omg the square neck (OBSESSED!) and she even likes the ending of the top. And anyway, if she finally doesn't like it she can always cover it up with some high-waisted bottoms. Smart sister.


TAILORED TRACK PANTS (Velvet Orchid, 19SD)
J: This pants are "meh" for me. I'm not a big fan of tracksuit pants and I kind of like that they have these tailored structure cause it's the thing that makes me like them a bit more but the wide legs with a bit of a flare? I don't know, they don't convince me at all, they're not horrible, but it's a NO for me, even if I think you can style them easily in a good outfit.
M: Meh? YOU ARE MEH! (that's our mother favorite insult, just rebound whatever you said to her, even if it makes sense or not, whatever works). I love tracksuit pants (sport glam is my jam) and turning them into "business" pants got me like... "Get a pant that can do both", ya know? I will prove to you that they are super cool. Trust my word! Also, they remind me of those comic books we used to love (memory lane on the tailored track pants wow), where Will Vandom wished there existed a formal tracksuit dress. Because now formal tracksuit clothes actually exist! 

REDS PUZZLE BAG (Velvet Orchid, 13SD)
J: Mixed feelings about this one even though I ended up buying it hehehe. The thing is I love this Loewe bag in RL, I think it has many possibilities on how to wear it and looks and stuff and I think it looks really nice so that's what made me buy the stardoll version. But I would have preferred another colour and definitely different shading, without that shiny thing going on. Still think it will look cool in outfits but yes, that annoys me a little bit. EDIT: Ok, not sure if this was such a good purchase... Just notice that the way it stands in the hand makes it difficult to style with long sleeved or wide jackets/tops.
M: The shading is what puts me off with this bag. And I also thought about the shape in the hand issue... Again, smart sister here. Seems like someone rushed the shopping huh? Haha Nah, I'm sure Judith will be able to create an outfit that will change my mind. And the prize is not that bad, so don't worry about it sis!

POM POM ROSE EARRINGS (RIO, 11SD)
J: Cute! It can be a nice a addition to an outfit. Personally I only like to spend stardollars on earrings when they are really extravagant and cool, since there are some nice ones that already do the trick available for starcoins, so I'm not buying, but I do think they're nice.
M: Okay, I'm 99% sure you won't get this but here it goes: Baila cerquita y susurra POM POM! 😂😂😂 Why am I like that? The song doesn't even say that... (YouTube link in case you are interested in my childhood music). Back into the stardoll world: I do like them. They are cute, they are red, and you get the two earrings I'm guessing, not having to buy each one for 11 SD. I think they are still expensive, and I'm definitely not buying, but if you feel like it... go for them! They can be a nice touch as Judith said. I only buy starcoin earrings because I'm SO CHEAP. 🐭

PATENT CREAM COURT HEELS (Pretty n' Love, 14SD)
M: Mmm they are nice and a basic piece. Pointy cream shoes are classy. Since I already own some pointy shoes (they look great with wide leg pants) I think I'm gonna pass on those. But if you don't own any I think they are a must.
J: Yep, quite a basic item and kind of boring too. I don't know they're fine but they could be a little more appealing for me without getting out of the basic zone.

MINI AVIATOR SUNGLASSES (Original Future, 12SD)
M: I love this sunglasses! I've been wanting my doll to wear those retro oval mini sunglasses that I've been seeing all over Instagram, and those are the closest par yet! I definitely love them and I have this weird thing over sunglasses now, I can't stop buying, I love adding sunglasses to any outfit... Blame me. 
J: I think this design is far from those little retro sunglasses you like and something like that would have definitely been cooler. This pair is not bad, and I love the outfit you made for them, but they're just another pair of sunglasses, nothing surprising, nothing impressive for me.


THE OUTFITS.

Seen on FM-Style: Ménage à trois

Hello! Stylish Stardoll Sister #1 here!
I'm here once again to bring you the recap for Task 5. I also wanted to inform you that due to another deadline extension I think we're gonna finally catch up with the real cycle going on! Happy news for an organization maniac like me.

That being said, in this task there were some irregularities and drop outs, like in all the rest. One of the stylish girls in Team SHADES delivered this task as her last contribution to the team. Yes, Natalia (a.k.a. Lawliet.) left. And she was not the only one! We had some drop outs in another team as well... A Team with No Name, slowly became A Team with Almost No Members, and Patricia (a.k.a. ManiakPupili) was left alone. However she still delivered a triple task, and as a reorganization, she became part of SHADES (that was left with 2 members) at the end of this task, still with the great Leticia (leiona_-) as their coach.



If you want to follow the cycle closely you will need to join the club FM-Style on Stardoll. To show you a little of what's going on in case you don't know the fashion competitions we host there on the club, this time we have a special cycle (Cycle 14 omg, we're getting old). We got to 600 members, and to celebrate that we're hosting a team cycle, meaning contestants don't take part individually but in teams, forcing them to work together and deliver kind of coordinated entries.


Welcome to the first ever #TeamCycle !



Task 5: Ménage à trois

We've already seen the importance of COLOURS in this first four tasks. Well, we're about to give them even more importance, cause they are now the theme of task 5. 

Each team must agree on three completely different colours, you CANNOT pick different shades of the same one. So, for example, light blue and navy blue or even black, white and grey won't be accepted in the same selection of colours. Each team member will later create an outfit using those three colours. 

You are also allowed to use other colours in the outfit, not just the ones you selected, but CAREFUL! It must be visible which three colours you picked, they need to be the main focus, they have to stand out among the others. The other colours would be just for details or combination. 

Also remember that after this tasks the elimination round will start, so give your best and try to make that team score as high as possible.

This time again, only one of the sisters did the example for the contestants, the other one was having fun in Valencia. That's what the devote working sister Mireia did with blue, yellow & white:

And now, what the teams presented together with they score they got from the judges:

1. SHADES - 8.40

2. The Flaming Jalapeño Gang - 6.66

3. The Hex Girls - 7.55

4. Team KAL - 7.73

5. Sarcasm. - 8.30

6. A Team with No Name - 8.80

7. MAC TEAM - 7.61



My personal favorites for this ménage à trois were:

-  In the first place we have... A Team with No Name! I highly value Patricia continuing with the cycle even when her Polish mates left. She delivered an entry with three outfits made by herself perfectly coordinated, and what I liked most, with gold as one of the main colours and not just an accessory. Her entry ended up being cute and nice with the blue and pink pastel, but glam at the same time with the incorporation of gold. 

- The second place has to be... Sarcasm.! This has been my favorite entry coming from them in this cycle. The coordination between Jane, Samantha and Aniyah is amazing, the outfits are so cool and badass. Very strong individual outfits and at the same time so strong together. I would have never thought I would like black combined with navy blue, but here with the orange in the middle looks perfect, hence the importance of adding colours. 

- And for the third place... SHADES! Is not a surprise to see Natalia, Federico and Beata here in the podium again, but is that colour combination what I love most about them. Instead of going for basic plain colours  they choose burgundy, mixed with orange and navy blue, all strong dark colours, that mixed together looked amazing. Their usual high class outfits were great once again.
