Spotted: Marta-43


Lately we are not having that much time with the cycle and us being coaches to post that many stuff on the blog (believe me, there are review posts that will come at some point), but yesterday I was visiting Marta, and I'm glad I did! Look at that outfit! I fell in love with every single bit of it. The pants look great with the suspenders and the shirt, but to top it all off that beige ruffle top looks amazing and gives some modernity and cuteness to an otherwise smart/business outfit. Every detail is perfect, even the hair and glasses complete this perfect outfit. And as an expert in backgrounds that Marta is, the suite decoration totally complements it as well. Wow Marta, thanks for this! ❤️

Store Statement: Marc Jacobs Tribute

Brand new tribute coming in! It's Mr. Jacobs turn!
I had the text written for this since quite a few days ago but wasn't in the mood to take the pictures, now I'm so late I couldn't even take the pic of the stardoll banner... :(

Before starting reviewing this new collection I highly recommend the article written by fellow FM-Style judge Lucy (SunnySidesSue) as I highly agree on everything she has said there and it's a very well written and thoughtful review. You can check it HERE. And now let's get into business!

My first impression of the new tribute was bad. That background along with the display of the items in the outfits they created for the mannequins was a bit too much for me. Too strange, too extravagant, too odd, name it whatever you want, but I didn't like it.

 

I always like to buy at least one item of each tribute so that's the reason I paid more attention and watch more closely. This is how I find some very interesting items and ended up buying three of them:


I loved the quality of the silver pants and also their shape. I'm not sure how will I style them but they're not too extravagant either (the only thing more special about them it's their colour) so I'm sure they can bring a nice touch to many outfits.
A bit of the same thing happened to me with the yellow skirt. The shape is quite simple but it's good quality of graphics too, and the colour is fantastic. Can't wait to style it later on for this post.
And the last item I bought would be the white playsuit. I liked it when I saw it but was a bit reluctant. I didn't see many possibilities for it. Then I talked to Mireia to see what she liked and she told me she hoped I would buy it, since she loved it but didn't thought it fit her style. Basically she made me reconsider and I decided to give it an opportunity, let's hope I don't regret it!

The other three items are the ones chosen by my sister. I think the military jacket it's a very good item that I'm going to see a lot around stardoll and if one of the two had to buy it that was Mireia, I'm sure she will make the perfect outfit for it. I also love the texture and colour of the short pink dress and even though I'm not a lot into those kind of playful items with things like a cat face on them I do see the possibilities in that and I'm sure Mireia will be able to make me like it.

So enough talking. It's time to see how the styling part goes!

Store Statement: Tributes Gallery


I'm so glad I didn't get to do the Tributes Gallery Store Statement of the shoes floor. I had the images prepared but didn't put myself to write it and now I can do it together with the second floor... bags!

Stardoll decided to innovate this Tribute season bringing us Tributes Gallery: two floors, 1 of shoes the other of bags, with a selection of several designers items instead of just a one brand store. I'm quite happy with these. A whole store of Aquazzura (for example) might have been a little bit boring. Here are the items available to shop.

 


Both floors have very interesting items and the graphics are very good quality, plus the store looks quite nice.

I like very much the shoe selection from Aquazzura, loving the three of them. From the other three brands included in the shoes floor I think they could have brought something better but still, I like the blue stilettos from Christian Louboutin, the cream fur sandals from Giuseppe Zanotti and the butterfly sandals from Sophia Webster.

The selection of bags in general I think it's worse, less interesting items for me in terms of quantity, but the ones that I do like... well I'm completely in love. That's the case of the Prada shoulder bag, the Chanel crossbody bag and the light pink Louis Vuitton shoulder bag with toucan birds on it. By the way, I don't think they have ever released a whole Louis Vuitton Tribute... It's not my favourite brand but I think it would be interesting for a change. I also thing they messed up a little bit in size with most of the big bags, they look way too big for my taste, but I'm a sucker for little bags so maybe it's just me.

Anyway, we narrowed down our selection and picked our favourites between my sister and I, and finally, this is what we got.

 


And to finish this review some outfits with the items. Mireia abandoned me this time so the outfits are just mine, but better that than nothing right?




What do you think of the new Tributes Gallery? Do you want to see it again in the next Tribute Season?
