I'm Torn...

I don't know what to say. More old Hot Buys are back...and they are extremely expensive. This matter, for some reason, bothers me. If the Stardoll staff are going to bother putting out year-old clothes that were made for the Summer 2007 Fashion Season, then they shouldn't expect us to pay $10 for a pair of shoes.

Even as I write that though, I can't help but feel a bit hypocritical. We all were begging for these virtual gems to be re-released a few months ago, but now the people who did shell out Giftcodes and other items for these "gems" are feeling a bit frustrated. The re-release of these items are making the collection as a whole less valuable.

But that's kind of a good thing, right? Why should we long for clothing that will never be worn in reality? Why should we spend hours on end begging and negotiating and searching for these virtual pieces? As long as girls still long to "belong" and "fit in" in this virtual playground, then there will always be a want for these items.
