Rarity has a passion for design and considers herself an artist, with other ponies' looks as her medium. Her dream is to design for Princess Celestia one day and even marry "the stallion of her dreams", which was initially Celestia's nephew, Prince Blueblood. She has a tendency to give her friends spontaneous makeovers and clothing tips if their appearance does not meet her (very high) standards.
Rarity takes great pride in her work and will do whatever it takes to make sure a dress is perfect for the customer, no matter how long it takes. She will stress herself into making a each garment exactly as the customer wants, going as far as following all their instructions instead of her own instincts. Because of the love of her career, she can be emotionally distraught when it is threatened in some shape or form.
Rarity is perhaps the most well-spoken of the main six ponies; her vocabulary tends to be on the more elegant side, and she is prone to use bigger words and more sophisticated, refined phrasing than the others. She speaks with a cultivated Mid-Atlantic dialect, and shares some mannerisms with similarly accented Hollywood actresses, such as Hungarian actress Zsa Zsa Gabor --for example, referring to others as "Darling."
Rarity spends a good bit of the day working in Carousel Boutique. If she's not in the front of the store working with customers, she's in her office/workshop designing and bringing her new fashions to life. At night she can often be found at the Treebrary hanging out with her friends.Currently Rarity produces garments for two fashions lines; her signature Rarity collection for young adult and adult ponies and her Fabulous Foals line for young fillies and colts since they deserve to look fabulous also. Both clothing lines are available in Hoity Toity's shop in Canterlot.
Carousel Boutique is Rarity's house/shop in Ponyville. It is typically open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm EST. Carousel Boutique is closed on the weekends. She will occasionally meet with a pony outside of these hours, especially if it is an urgent request or some other fashion emergency.
During normal business hours, ponies are encouraged to go ahead and enter Carousel Boutique without knocking. However, Rarity will place a 'Gone for X minutes' sign if she is away during normal business hours.
