Dimei Guang Chang Underground Shopping Arcade

What I expected.... (1000+ hours in ms paint)

You won't find Dimei Guang Chang on any tour guide's list of places to shop, nor will you find many locals (over 25) who are familiar with this shopping wonderland. Dimei Guang Chang is tucked underground beneath People's Square and is easy to miss if you don't know where to turn.

Below is a graphic I quickly drew up to help illustrate the meanings. You can cover the words and test yourself to see if you know them all.
Let's begin!

Liz Lisa is Japanese fashion brand known for their ultra feminine and cute clothing. With frequent floral prints and use of chiffon fabrics it is a staple in most roma and himekaji gyaru wardrobes (not totally accurate, but here's a description of "gyaru"). The brand's concept has a strong focus on "Retro & Girlish", so needless to say, I love Liz Lisa! I was  excited to discover they have a store in Shanghai and quickly made my way over to check it out.
