Limited Edition has become an iconic collection for Stardoll and its members. The allure of a quality item being sold in limited quantities, at high prices, drew everyone in. Everyone, including myself.
Since the dawn of my Stardoll days, I followed Limited Edition collections with a hungry desire in my eye. I was so eager to get my hands on every piece. The brand name alone was enough to capture my full attention. And while there were some great pieces being sold via LE, I wasn't so much concerned with the clothing as I was with the fact that it was Limited Edition.
I suffered much disappointment from missing collection after collection. With real life standing in the way, I couldn't compete with other users that stayed up past their bedtime just to get their hands on a newly released batch of LE. That all changed when I was able to snag some great pieces from the first Limited Edition Decor collection.
I was overjoyed with excitement as I thoughtfully placed the new items in my suite. I relished in the glory of finally catching a collection. At that point I was more hooked than ever. I began paying close attention to Stardoll blogs that released spoilers for LE, and I waited impatiently for a new collection to spring up.
When the 'feathers' collection rolled into StarPlaza, I pounced on my laptop and hastily made purchases before the items were sold out. While there was only one item that stuck out to me, a feathered bag, I bought many other things without regret. That regret sank in about a month later when I tried piecing together outfits with my first LE clothing items. I soon realized that I didn't desire the clothing as much as I had led myself to believe. In fact, I couldn't wait for the day when I was able to sell my LE in my bazaar.
This morning when I logged in and saw the new LE, my heart raced a little faster as I scurried to Starplaza to check out the new items. I quickly drug over a dozen items to dressing room and prepared to click the 'buy' button, until I realized that I would most likely never use any of these items. And that when I looked at them a bit closer, there wasn't much I even liked. Quite frankly, I have become more attached to cheap accessories and shoes that I can use over and over again to make hundreds of outfits. So why waste my money on things with a nice label but no wearability?
Never again will I stalk the blogs in hopes of catching a glimpse of a new Limited Edition collection. I'll probably never own more than twenty Limited Edition items. And that's just fine with me, because I'll have so much more money to spend on cheap shoes and accessories that will last me a Stardoll lifetime.
What are you opinions on the new Limited Edition?
