IMVU Do's and Don'ts! •

Is the virtual world safe? It can be, if you follow a few simple guidelines. I have been enjoying the virtual world for almost a year now, and have made quite a name for myself there. Now it's time to return to reality and help those who may be wondering if it is okay to dip their toes into the pixel waters of the gaming community called IMVU Inc.First things first... Don't EVER use a credit card when purchasing something from IMVU. Use PayPal. This will keep your account information from leaking out to would-be scammers. Though IMVU continually updates their security measures, no one is completely safe. I have seen (and been a victim of) this too many times not to pass along this warning. Additionally, when purchasing credits (IMVU currency), use a reliable reseller, such as IMVUSale or Casseiopia. Check with your friends to find out who they go through for their credits. Personally, I use IMVUSale. They offer reward points for referrals and purchases through their web site, and they only accept PayPal. Credit transfer is immediate, which is always a plus. Casseiopia has been with IMVU almost from the beginning. She is a well known developer and moderates some of IMVU's forum threads. The safest place to meet new people to chat with is in the member owned groups. There are groups for just about any genre, and you can better understand what types of people congregate in the groups by observing them. I know it may seem boring at times, especially if the group is inactive for long periods of time, but you really can meet some amazing people that way. Check out homepages and read what people say about themselves and those around them. Their artwork will also speak volumes about who they are or who they pretend to be in the virtual world. Many use the IMVU community as an educational tool, such as graphic design and game developing. I, myself, have learned much from the people I met there. If not for two groups in particular, I would not have added graphic design to my list of marketable skills. I still have much to learn, but I am in love with graphic design. If you are under the age of eighteen, I highly suggest you stick to your own age group. IMVU's security team cannot be everywhere at one time, and predators have been known to slip through the cracks a time or two, just as any other social network. Keep yourself safe in the virtual world just as you would in the real world. Don't talk to strangers, and certainly don't entertain those who send of warning signals like a camp fire in the desert. Use your instincts to your advantage. If you smell drama or creepiness, get out and block the person. That is what the block feature is for.

IMVU Do's and Don'ts! •

Another place to put your guard up is in public chat rooms. This is nothing new, but needs to be said. DON'T give out personal information in a public room (in fact, don't give it out period). This may include, but is not limited to, home town, address, phone number, real name, physical description of yourself, and any information about people that are in your real life (i.e. family, friends, class mates, coworkers). This also happens to be a violation of the terms of service that everyone is supposed to read when they sign up for an account with IMVU. People have had their accounts disabled for all of these reasons, so keep your personal information to yourself. Now, on to the fun stuff! Everybody loves to shop on IMVU. Those that don't shop make the products for those that do. You can do or be just about anything there, from dragon lord to hip hop star. The clothes and rooms are as endless as the color wheel. All that is lacking is the imagination to create the perfect room to show your personal style (or the style you feel like showing off that day). Chat with virtual superstars in a public room or laugh it up with your closest friends at an exclusive party. The choice is yours. Many famous faces have joined IMVU, including Ice-T and Coco, who recently opened up their own little store in the catalog. Ice-T even promoted his virtual goods on the Conan O'Brien Show. I personally have the ballcap, tee and shades and they are fabulous! All in all, IMVU is a great community filled with wonderful people, no matter how they look in pixels. I couldn't imagine getting through my day without checking the threads at least once and doing a modeling shoot or two (yes I'm a model there, and also own my own agency). Check it out for yourself and see what all the buzz is about. Who will you be today?

Look again this spring to seeing lots of red, and tons of lace, not to mention flowing floral prints hanging on the racks... As always...Black and white fashions defy time, and keep their well earned place as big colors for spring and summer of 2012. Black and white fashions were big on the runways this season, most fashion designers showed black and white in some fashion or another . Let's face it - you can't go wrong with the traditional black and white outfit. The designers know this little fact, and continue to cash in on it. This season dresses, and skirts will remain must haves... But this season fashion designers have also given us all kind of fun fashions. Fashions that will offer wonderful vivid prints, stripes, and geometric prints - not to mention some great new takes on animal prints... The main theme this spring is somewhat tailored, and classic, but with a touch of bold, and edgy.

Let's start out with what's up with fashion color trends...

The big color trend for 2012 spring/summer is mint green... Yes you read right - mint green is the biggest color trend for the up coming season. The racks will be full of fashions that all done up in a soft whimsical version of mint green. Another color trend being you will see this spring, especially in handbags and shoes is neon's. Such as bright blues, yellows, greens, oranges, and hot pinks. Do you Crochet? Well it's back... Crochet vests are big this spring, maybe you can look to the back of your closet . maybe you might have a bit of a crochet number lurking. The color that jumps out at the head of the line for this spring when it comes to neon shades, is orange! Less face it there is no other color that can make a loud fashion statement as bright orange. So need a new handbag or a great pair of shoes? Make it orange.

Belt bags are one of the great big trends... However, I am not talking "fanny packs'...Stick to the new small square flat belt bags - so cute, and less weight to carry on that shoulder. Feet need a rest This spring kitten heels are big... The kitten heel is a good choice this spring. They are feminine, and classic, as well as comfortable. Creamy neutrals, all done up to give you a very feminine look. Flowing pajama - styles, tunics. All meant to be classical, and again comfortable. Think whimsical pattrens. From bird prints to deers, fruit, feathers, you name it, tops with whimsical prints are big. You will see everything from blouses to dresses all sporting Whimsical prints. Stripes - Stripes seem to hold a place in fashion year after year. You can't go wrong wearing stripes, from head to toe... High-Waisted flare pants are so big this spring... The pant that Katharine Hepburn made so popular, is back... I suggest you pair this style of pants with a great heel, just to give the old look a bit of flare. The new flare pant as a rule have loops for a skinny belt, so you can flash up the look with a flashy thin belt.
