The Little Cantina
“You said you wanted Mexican, Music, Tequila.. and I ended up at this little Cantina. I was hoping you’d find me…”
Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge presented Ruby. No, Ruby Slippers would have been way too easy and when I wandered into Tres Blah after checking out the new releases from lamb! I spotted this dress and it all fell into place from there. I love the alpha layer of the -TB- Mexican Peasant dress that does a pretty decent job of covering your ass, although I did lose the prim sleeves because I just couldn’t seem to get them just right no matter how hard I tried. The lily from Cake was a perfect little ruby red touch to the new hair release, Isolation, from lamb!. It’s like a loose, messy updo and I loved it. Almost as much as I loved the aqua beaded neclace, also from -tb-, to offset the red mexican peasant dress.
And now.. the Cantina story. Once upon a time there was a SIM called Mexico. There was a gorgeous cathedral, horseback riding, beaches, little shops, and I searched for it. I did find a Mexico SIM, but to my surprise when I landed all I saw was some guy and a chick on her knees in a rather…submissive position. Clearly, this wasn’t your mom’s Mexico. I quickly TP’d out of there with an apologetic IM to the SIM owner (?) who happened to IM me just as I was leaving. Luckily, a few more searches landed me here. It was exactly what I was looking for and I would love to go back to it. Beautiful buildings, fountains, and that perfect Cantina.
