I've finally got the reference up. Anyway, Carmine was originally going to be a holiday character, but due to the surge in popularity during the month, and people liking her, I'm making her a part of the now "Fab Five", alongside Jacqui, Maxie, Rodger, and Shirley.
So, I wouldn't want her to wear that Christmas outfit forever. That's why I made this outfit. And the earrings? They were given to her by ~Hermes-Serelepe

And how was she able to get by in Critterton? Well, this will explain: She's basically quit her job in the bar that used to belong to her father, but was bought by a corporation. Upon moving to Critterton, she landed a spot in another bar/club...which, with her 'skills', she revives.
