Store Smarts

I’m curious how you guys feel about this, so please leave your comments. My inworld friends will know that these days I’m like a ping-pong ball when it comes to being inworld. I’m on and off, on and off – I know, I’m really just looking for attention. 😉 In all seriousness, I have trouble rezzing 70% of the time, which I know is probably 80% my PC’s fault.

Despite this, I love blogging and shopping and styling is what I mostly do in Second Life. I do use Marketplace more and more. My first preference however, is to shop inworld. I love browsing and also explore the rest of the sim while I’m at it. Looking for more places to take my photos.

Which brings me to my pet peeve: huge stores without clear signage of layouts or sections. I get so annoyed if I take ages to rez (probably crash twice before I do see anything) and then I have to search and search for an item I saw on another blog, as I need to look through the shoes, then the swimsuits, then the lingerie, then more and more and more.. just to not find the top I want… just to do it again.

Yes I know, my PC problems are not the store owner’s issue. But I’m sure I’m not the only one with the same problem. Should you not make things as easy and as comfortable as possible for your customer?

Just to be clear, I don’t mind big stores. I’m just saying if your store is big, make signs and put things in sections so I don’t have to look through the skins and shapes if I want a top. Thing is, if I’m there and found what I was looking for easily, I might think, wait… while I’m here, lets go look at the swimsuits and in future I’ll come back again and again.

What’s your opinion on this?

Skinny Girls
I decided to blog this vintage outfit from FATAL which is only available at The Garage Event,  but for a change I wanted write about something related to the picture. I then googled ‘vintage’ and it came up with 50’s advertisements and things like: ‘Skinny girls don’t have oomph’ and ‘Why be skinny, come on, enjoy life!’. I was surprised as I thought that over centuries it was always the skinnier the better. Seems like boys like our bums!

This outfit I’m wearing below comes in four colors and AND it’s bootilishous!. 😀

Still Snowing

Since it is still snowing in a big part of the world, including my sim, I decided to show you the wonderful jacket from Legal Insanity. The jacket comes in 4 colors and each color has 4 colors shirts, also you can wear the jacket without the shirt. And while you unpack – wear/add the box instead of unpacking it to the floor – it’s fun to play the guitar while unpacking!

Morgan, a good friend, also suggested I buy the booties I’m wearing from Just Design. I got so much more than I expected. It has 3 options and it comes in various colors. You can wear it as I am, or add socks which makes it a mid boot or the third option, high boot. Enjoy the snow and happy shopping.
