Devil with a Pink Dress On

Sure, right now you are probably thinking, “Wait a minute!  Isn’t the song ‘Devil with a Blue Dress On‘?”

Well, yes, the song, Shorty Long’s unremarked 1964 debut single, more popularly covered by Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels in a medley with Little Richard’s Good Golly Miss Molly, refers to a blue dress.  But the cute little jumpsuit my boss gave me to model for you is pink, so you are just going to have to work with me on this one…

One way, or another, I'm gonna gacha, gacha, gacha!

One way, or another, I’m gonna gacha, gacha, gacha!

Now, I would love to tell you my boss is giving me cute clothing from the sheer goodness of her heart.  In fact, she is giving me cute clothing for crass commercial purposes, so I can inform you about the lovely items Grumble, Grumble is selling at the latest round of the Thrift Shop event, now open and lasting until the end of the month.  So here we go.  For my first picture, I posed by the gacha machines Grumble brought to T.S.6.  On the left, you see mermaid backpacks, available in six colors, on sale for 35 L$.  In the center is a machine offering ‘Feisty’ high heeled ankle boots for 50 L$.  These boots are really cute, and work with Slink Mesh Feet.  On the right is a machine offering cute animal earrings or chain necklaces.  The gacha display is wearing the Panda necklace.  I’m wearing puppy earrings and a puppy necklace.  There are also butterflies, turtles, and frogs to be collected, and each play of this gacha is a very affordable 25 L$.

Snapshot_070I went ahead and changed outfits before taking some pictures at the main Grumble Kiosk.  Again moving from left to right, the booth featured several cute items.  The pearled clutches  come in three colors, pink, mint, and the black one I’m using to hold my last few Lindens.  Very cute, and only 49 L$.  Inside the big diamond is a special bargain, an ‘I’m Hot’ word necklace for just 1 L$. (I believe this same necklace is 25 or 35 L$ from a gacha machine at Grumble’s mall sim.)  The dotted jumpsuit selling for 59 L$ comes in four colors.  I modeled the pink one earlier, the black one is shown on the display sign, and the jumpsuit is also available in blue and green.  Next to that is a belted slouch mini dress, which is again 59 L$ and again comes in four colors, this time gray, pink, purple, and red.  Both of the models of shoes being sold here are Slink compatible.  There are several colors of spiked heels, or an all-black slightly higher zippered heel.  The magic number for any of these shoes is still 59 L$.  The mesh chained shirt, with one of the straps doing the off-the-shoulder thing, looks like it should be fabulous, but I have to put a little disclaimer with it.  (Sorry, Allie!)  The mesh spiked DevoTops are fabulous.  In both cases, the tops are bundled for Thrift Shop, 100 L$ to receive a box containing all the colors of the respective top, seven colors for the chained shirt, four colors for the DevoTop.  (I’m wearing the salmon color for the DevoTop in pictures 2 and 3.)

Now the disclaimer.  I’ll start by excusing Allie Munro.  Not only is she busy running Grumble, Grumble, but she is also launching Grumble’s new club, the Wet Spot, actively looking for more dancers and escorts to work there, and helping out by dancing there herself until it is fully staffed.  She has a lot on her plate, which, since you’ve heard me whine about everything Firsty keeps on his plate, you know I sympathize.  Plus, if you’ll pardon my English, shit happens.  No body is perfect, accidents are unavoidable.  Allie gave me two of the chained shirts to model, and they were actually my first choice to wear for this post- like I said, they look fabulous.  Unfortunately, the alpha that came along with the mesh top is not the alpha for the top, but the alpha that goes with the dot jumpsuit.  I purchased the set to double check, and yep, sure enough, as of 11.30 PDT on the 20th, the set for sale doesn’t come with the proper alpha layer.  Grumble prides itself on customer service, so I’m sure I’ll see it resolved soon, but as of now, I’m still waiting to see how it plays out.
