Just 'Cause She's a Girl...

Hello Fabulouses.  Do any of you know if the SL version of AAA services tractors?  In RL, I’ve run out of gas, had a dead battery, and locked my keys in the car.  Every time, the AAA rep arrived like a knight in shining armor, and saved me.  However, today…. I don’t think that will be the case.  😦 After Ripley and I returned from our trip, a friend of mine called, saying he needed help with plowing his field.  When I saw the rusted condition of his tractor, I glanced at him dubiously. “The tank is full,” he said.  My eyebrow raised.  “I just tuned it up,” he said.  Both eyebrows raised.  “Nothing to worry about,” he said.  Famous.  Last.  Words.   She did start up like a charm, I’ll grant him that, but after one trip around the field, with a shudder and a cough, she just….gave….up.  No amount of coaxing, no amount of promises of Ripley snacks, no amount of helpless pounding on the steering wheel worked.  I was stranded.

Pretty as a Pin Up

Well, if I have to be stuck with a stubborn, tired old tractor, at least I look glamorous in my Retro Pin Up Outfit from Meli Imako.  With a vintage, knotted checkered top, and fitted denim capris, this adorable number makes me feel like a sexy, fifties pin up girl.  I love the detail the designer put into this creation such as the slightly puffed sleeves, buttons on the shirt, and the pocket accents on the pants.  This outfit is the featured free January gift at Meli Imako’s Marketplace store because it earned the most likes on the designer’s Facebook page.  I’d have to agree with all the votes……it’s a great choice!

What’s Included:

  • Mesh for classic avatars in 5 sizes:  XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Fitmesh
  • Appliers for Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Hourglass, EBody and Tonic

Put Your Red Shoes On

I admit it, my heels are in no way practical for driving a tractor around a field, but they called my name.  As soon as I saw the Cinzia pumps fat pack featured in the KC Couture Marketplace store for only 75L, I knew they had to be mine.  Constructed of rigged mesh, these classic heels have a timeless elegance which totally complemented my retro ensemble.  A 30 color texture HUD makes these shoes extremely versatile.  You can customize them to go with any outfit.   These stilettos require mesh feet, and fit Slink High, Maitreya, Belleza and the Eve Mesh Body.  I wouldn’t recommend wearing them for a day of plowing, but hey, it’s SL!  Where else could I drive a tractor and walk around in muddy, scrubby fields, and never mar my shoes?

Speaking of Walking…

I don’t think help will arrive any time soon.  It’s time for this girl to save herself, and hoof it on back to civilization.  I’ve got a pup at home who is probably worried sick about me.  Until my next post, happy shopping!
