Shop ’til you Drop!

Haute Couture Dress Boutique

I love shopping as much as the next girl, my mom would often say “let’s shop till we drop.” When I learned that the October theme for The Challenge is Shopping, I was excited to create something in Second Life I’ve always dreamed of in real life, my own boutique.  Not only did I design and furnish “Glory’s Haute Couture Shop” with some of my favorite shoes, dresses, and hats, but I expanded the idea into a small seaside district, with “Glory’s Sweet Treat Shop” next door (previously blogged here).  Concentrating on my point of view (POV), of showcasing California interior design and styles, I attempted to create my favorite place on earth, Carmel-by-the-Sea.  I thought my tribute to Carmel build would fit perfectly into the monthly themed ? feature.

Carmel is a small coastal artist community situated on the Monterey Peninsula in Northern California. It is noted for cobblestone streets, small boutiques, art galleries, and being dog friendly.  One day I would love to own a second home in the Carmel Valley, but for now I have wonderful memories of important milestones, like my 18th birthday, spraining my ankle once or twice on the irregular pavement, and ordering a Ramos Fizz at the Del Monte Bar & Grill at the age of 5 (ok, so I guess I should have specify virgin cocktail, please).

Dress Shop Front Door

I used the Black Tulips My First Store exclusive release as the corresponding storefront for both the boutique and sweet treat shop, creating uniformity and consistency in the boulevard. All the merchandise is arranged on Hate This Store Displays with fashion sketches indicating the variety of items. Cleo Designs Tete a Tete chairs with tea set frame the shop windows and the Fitting Rooms are in the corner of the store.  I transformed a Hate This Display Table into a check out area, pairing it with Fetch Shopping Corkboard and Kuro Shopping List.  If you are a designer looking to redesign your store, or ever wanted to fantasize about creating your own store, pop over and pick up these exclusive creations made for The Challenge.

Delicious Delights

Candy Fair- Sweet Shop Framed

Do you have a sweet tooth?  If you had a choice between a box of chocolates or lingerie, would you select candy?  Did you ever want to be baker?  Well, I’ve created an old-fashion sweet shop that answers all your desires.

He whispered sweet nothings…

The Candy Fair 2014 is well under way and offers a delicious delight of dubious delectable from clothes, accessories, shoes, candy, poses and home decor.  As an interior designer, I was inspired by a mix of speciality gift shops from yesteryear and my local ice creamery.  “Glory’s Sweet Treats” offers an array of cotton candy, pick candy, ice cream, milkshakes, occasion cakes, cupcakes, seasonal treats, fresh-baked yummies, tea, coffee, and some darling plushies you’ll want to take home.  With multiple seating areas inside and al-fresco, we can cater to all your sugar pleasures.  Enjoy the photos and let me know if you want to visit (I’ll keep the build up until the 14th).
