I was given this game for Christmas a few years ago, and I'm still playing it! It taught me a little about the retail side of fashion and how to manage a budget. It also allowed me to explore many different fashion styles. It taught me that fashion isn't about fitting in, but about expressing yourself through your own creative style; whether it's girly, sporty, punk, or whatever, is your choice.
The characters in the game constantly say how important it is to be yourself and love what you wear. I like how if the customers don't like a style, instead of saying "that looks ugly" or something like that, they say "Oh, that's nice, but it's just not me".
The only thing I didn't like about the game was that you don't have the option of being a boy character, so boy players have to be girls in the game. :/
Overall, it's a wonderful game that I will enjoy for years to come (it never ends).
