Gameplay

The currency of the game is "ribbons", which can be earned by completing various tasks, including posting fashion items and commenting on other user's photos. These ribbons can be used to buy clothing for avatars. In 2009, the website implemented a new currency, "jewels", a pay-to-play system where some users are able to access clothing items for their avatar that non-paying users cannot.

Closet

Users can post photos of clothing and accessories and create a virtual closet, which other users of the website can view and comment. Fashion items can be categorized according to brand name (listed under the brand name in the Fashion Dictionary) and type. Every item has a yellow "Suteki" (or "Cute") button. If a user gets many suteki rankings or comments, he or she is eligible to win ribbons.
