This brother told me a secret on how to get more chicks
Put a little Medina in your glass and the girls’ll come real quick
It’s better than any alcohol or aphrodisiac
A couple of sips of this love potion and she’ll be on your lap
~ “Funky Cold Medina” by Tone Loc
I had a little reminiscing the other night about songs from my youth like “Funky Cold Medina” and the “Humpty Dance” (“I like to rhyme,/I like my beats funky,/I’m spunky. I like my oatmeal lumpy.”) What ever happened to a sense of humor in music? This is the kind of girl Tone Loc was after in that song—tall, beautiful, well-dressed. I start with a dress from SamanthaSJones. With a studded, belted waist and simple top, it allows for accessorizing (I removed the jacket). And my accessories are punched up in bright pink—cuffs from Maxi Gossamer for the Limited Bazaar and a pink headband on Truth Hawks’ newest style.
The news here are new shoes from Syntella Rhapsody, who has released a couple new pairs at her store, Seven Exits. She does all the work on these shoes, from mesh to textures, attaching a HUD for color matching. This pair also has the added benefit of having removable studs and a lace panel (which I don’t show here). The fatpack comes in several colors on the HUD as well. They are stylish and sleek and an alternative to other looks.
Agony Helse has worked on a new skin tone for her line—chocolate. The color is deep and beautiful and while I would not call the features specifically African (because she kept the features the same), I would say the coloring is elegant and rich. I added a lipstick from Mocksoup Graves because I prefer this more translucent lip. The lips Agony included were too bright and flat for such a lovely skin.
Mavi Beck has been fashioning up her own poses for her store, “Ma Vie,” which you will see at many events. I like their elegance and creativity..
She had a few drinks, I’m thinkin’ soon what I’ll be gettin’
Instead she started talkin’ ’bout plans for our weddin’
I said, wait, slow down, love, not so fast, says, I’ll be seein’ ya
That’s why I found you don’t play around with the Funky Cold Medina
