Baby Needs a New Pair of Shoes…and I Don’t Mean For My Feet!

Shoes_1 Now that I’ve got this Kickin’ Car…
How do I make it stand out from the crowd?

"It don’t mean a thing if it Ain’t Got that BLING"

One of our most distinguishing features as inhabitants of Atlanta…besides opposable thumbs and our absolute need for the coolest cars ever… is our ability to accessorize. If you don’t believe me, just look around you next time you’re gridlocked on the connector. We even have shows like "Pimp My Ride," and box-office smashes… like the three "Fast and Furious" movies, feed this need for cool. There’s an entire world of accessories out there to quench even the most discerning thirst for attention.

Let’s look at the top reigning desirables:

Baccarat Rims/Wheels: Shoes, as I lovingly call them come in all sizes, metallic composition, but my favorites are encrusted with Swarovski crystals… and once again, in this case (sigh) size does matter. Nothing grabs someone’s attention quite like the blinding glint of the afternoon sun on a 22” rolling circle of CZ’s.

LED Dashboard Lights: A dashboard seem so dull without these, n’est ce pas? The only problem is, that no one can see them but you, so if spending money on things no one can see is pointless, then use the outward approach, and go for some LED underbody lighting, available in all colors, and de riguer for the "Saturday Evening Style" set. Can be slightly illegal, but to some, that’s half the fun.

In-Car Entertainment System: Feel like the area around you is lacking an earthquake-style thumping beat? And, if it would be a true travesty not to impose your exquisite musical taste on all of those around you, then you must spend at least your next 2 mortgage payments on the biggest, baddest, loudest system that money can buy. Not only will you beat the Joneses’; they’ll hear you get off your interstate exit.

Navigation: An absolute necessity in this city, due to the fact that all roads are Peachtree something or other, and driving while reading a map is so… well… uncool. Navigation will not only tell you where to go, but you can hear it in a very sexy French accented pool boy type voice if you so desire, tres chic!

Get A Vanity Plate: The longer people have to stare at your license plate to figure out what it says, the cooler you are. And, this one can be accomplished for a mere $50 donation to your tag office.

So get out there, and accessorize… and remember: "The Shoes make the Girl!"
