Style Savvy: Fashion Forward Weekend Report

Style Savvy: Fashion Forward Weekend Report

Well, if you want to know how my weekend with Style Savvy: Fashion Forward went, just read the first two entries in this series. Nothing has changed. I’m still doing the same stuff. Ricky is selling tickets for a second fashion show, and I still can’t figure out how to guarantee ticket sales. A couple new stores opened up in the Exhibition Hall. My store actually ran out of room, which means I’ll have to start using the warehouse equivalent to store some of my clothing. People keep buying the mannequin’s outfit, which is actually annoying because I have to keep redressing it. After that first successful fashion show, people have stopped asking me for specific items. They no longer come in asking for a new hat or a cute pair of shoes. Now they want entire outfits. This is great in theory, because outfits pull in more money than a single item.

There’s a Makeup Lab in the 2nd floor of the Beautician building, but no tutorial on what you should be doing. Supposedly you’re creating makeup kits to sell to people but I have no idea what the game wants me to do. Speaking of makeup, people still come in with specific requests, but there’s been a glut of customers wanting me to do everything from scratch. Unlike the hair salon, in which you quiz a person about what they want , makeup people offer no details. They may act unhappy with the finished product, but how would you know beforehand? There is no United States localization here. We’ve gotten the UK version of the game. You’ll often read about “colour” , “fringes” , and “trousers” . There’s some UK lingo here and there that I only recognize by virtue of growing up on a steady diet of Are You Being Served and…
