It’s Fashion: How to Shop The Shops

I have important information. I can tell you how to shop THE SHOPS. I too have stood in the bright white landing point shouting OMG WHAT IS HAPPENING and ended up leaving frustrated. It’s happened. But, I’ve sorted it out and now I feel daft as it’s easy. Let me take you on a trip while I buy some lipstick. First of all, TP to THE SHOPS.

The FIRST thing that happens when you land is that you are handed a folder. YOU NEED THIS FOLDER. This is not a group joiner nor an invite to attend a BEST IN RED CONTEST WITH DJ HOT PANTS. This is an important folder and it contains a shopping hud and a styling hud. Put the shopping HUD ON.

If you are going to buy ANYTHING you’ll want to go ahead and buy credits. Not that big of a deal, you can sort out what you want and get the dollar amount closest to that. Pay the circle of the amount you want to pay. And now you have credit at the store.

Click on the picture on the wall that says THE MESH PROJECT to go pick up a body if you like. When you  click on the body these are your choices.

I grabbed DELUXE. But you see there is a free version, GREAT for giving it a try.

You can also pick up a head if you like. I didn’t get one and I regret it a little I’d like to check one out. NEXT TIME! Mesh heads fascinate me.

This is where I grabbed the shoes and dress. You can also pop over to THE BOUTIQUE for more clothes. YAY clothes.

But I wanted lipstick! So – I found the arrow on the floor to go BACK to the first room with all the TP options.

And now I can choose to go to THE SKIN SHOP.

And since it was lipstick I was after, it was lipstick I found.

I chose CUTE and then chose my color palette from there. It was SO easy!

And that’s how you shop the shops! Easy!

Sophie will be back from visiting Auntie Inventory soon and I’ve got a surprise for her! Alouette has released an AMAZING NEW DOLLHOUSE for the Arcade and you’re going to need ALL OF THE PIECES.

Yes you are.

The happy King and Queen are ready to play in this magical little play set that’s perfect for children of all ages. Yes even you grown ones.

It sits on pedestal table that is surrounded by a flowing moat. Exactly what every castle needs.

Put it on your shopping list – you’re going to need it!

ARCADE PREVIEW: Belleza #5 – Make It Your Own

The thing about skins is, none of us wants to look like the other one.  But for the awesome price of the ARCADE it’s hard to pass up a great skin like Emily. You can always opt to make some tweaks to the skin that make it more YOU, your signature look, than just the out of the box skin.  Three very small adjustments personalized this #5 version of Emily.

It’s 100 Degrees, Again

Whatever induced me to think a weekend in the trailer when it’s 100 degrees outside, I’ll never know. As it is I’m reduced to my undies and can barely move unless I have to. The humidity is so thick you could cut it, even with the sea breeze. Continue reading

Casual Friday: So Casual I’m Tardy

Gabby and I went FLF shopping and I had to stop off at Vespertine because I wanted the wall art for my house. I happened to stumble into her gacha room with all of her old ARCADE round items – and OMG I WANTED THIS CAR. I gave it a few pulls, got some cute pieces from this set (I already had several) but alas. NO CAR. Continue reading
