It's Alicia's birthday and she has a big surprise coming! Her grandmother, Lily, has decided it's time for Alicia to take over her chain of posh boutiques. Alicia thinks it sounds like a dream come true but in reality it takes a special someone with great timing, a keen business sense, and an eye for style to make Posh Boutique the most fashionable shop around. Players will help Alicia cater to her customers in seven unique settings. To make it in the fast-paced world of fashion, Alicia will need to be fast on her feet, dedicated to her customers, wise in her upgrades, and attentive to her special V.I.P. customers. For fast fashion fun, there's no place like Posh Boutique!
