Let’s Get Some Shoes

I had a very brief flit around and saw some pairs that caught my eye; not all of them for myself but I could see plenty of friends wearing.  In fact,  if I’m being honest there were only a few pairs that appealed to me especially, although there were some cracking male shoes this year that I’ll get Jez to tell you all about.  The shoe styles I did like though will be featuring in some of my future blog posts, starting with this pair, ‘Raquel’ by DEAD DOLLZ. These are a classic high heel design with a simple but very effective ruffle on the back; they’re fancy, but not OTT, and the gentle criss-cross toe bar and elegant ankle strap balance them perfectly.   Also included are hosiery socks to wear with the shoe via HUD, featuring 12 colours and on/off feature.  Incidentally at FAMESHED this month there is some coordinating hosiery to complete the look (which I’m wearing here in my picture) too. I’m also sporting some BAIASTICE lingerie in this shot too, the lovely ‘Guepiere’ set in lace black, also available at the latest round of FAMESHED. To finish my look I added my NERIDO ‘Chic’ Bolero jacket along with my AVAWAY ‘Gwen’ ribbon corset choker. (All basic kitty look details can be found HERE) Incidentally, the pose in this photo is NOT from the pop I’m sprawled across, it’s from the ‘Saucy’ shoe pose set by INFINITI which is also at SHOETOPIA.

As Pure As The Driven Snow

..of which, we have plenty in the UK.  I swear I’m starting to get cabin fever! Anyhoo, following on from my last post raging about events is a look I cobbled together purely from shopping at two of them: FROU FROU and BLUSH. Now, you know my thoughts on FROU FROU so I won’t go over them again here.  BLUSH is a different beast, it follows a more conventional in-world format; there are no surprise layouts or quirks. When you first rez into the event you’re in a room which is pretty much filled with awesomeness. Seriously, this is where the majority of the quality is at, and I relished looking around at the lovely things that were on offer. I’m guessing this initial room cost a bit more to be included in than the second, which is a far more mixed bag; after you’ve exhausted all your shopping options in the main room and wander into the second you’ll still find great designers such as WASABI. EXILE, KIBITZ and ATOMIC to name check just a few, but if I’m being honest there are a few slightly ropey inclusions. But let me stress I’m NOT applying that to everything in the room, there are some excellent contributions to be found but it lacks the overall consistency of the first.  That said I certainly spent enough in both rooms, which contributed to my pulling this rather fabulous look together!Sweet Dreams

It’s all about layering and the purity of white, contrasted with a peekaboo bra and a cracking bolero jacket.  This is one of those occasions where I wish I had bought a ruddy fatpack rather than a few singles, but hey ho…  The jacket is really very pretty and detailed well; a textured base with fluted edging tape all the way around, and it’s tied with a bow.  Above that, I am wearing the glorious wee AVAWAY ‘Gwen’ corset collar with contrasting metal trim.  It comes with a very extensive hud enabling you to change the colour of the ribbons and the metal filigree frame.

My underwear is of course from FROU FROU, as I have simply adored that event. This peek a boo bra and panty set is from ABRASIVE. The ‘Lustful Lingerie’ set hugs the curves and really turns heads, which admittedly does tend to happen when your norks are out, even in Second Life. To complete the look I added some rather lovely AMD lace garters along with some favourite LUXURIA stockings. Last but not least, some vintage style glasses from MULLOY and the hairstyle that I really cannot get enough of at the moment, ‘Lady’ By TRUTH,  My poses are a cracking discovery that I made at BLUSH, they’re by POSEIDON and the set is called ‘Flirtation’ Who’da thunk it, huh?

Despite the obvious sauciness of this look I actually think it’s incredibly beautiful, hope you do too!
