Let’s Get Some Shoes

I can never say the word ‘shoes’ without this going through my head..anyway, it’s Shoetopia, and if you want to buy some sho..erm, footwear then this is the event to visit!

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.

Happy Valentina E Day!

Well, when you shop at VALENTINA E pretty much every day is a good day, and that goes double for her latest offerings at FAMESHED. 

She’s released the ‘Meghan’ Belted coat and dress at the event, and they’re delicious. As is usual with Valentina’s designs we’re talking modern styling with a retro twist.  The Meghan dress is, on first glance, a sleeveless style that finishes at the knee with a belt to the waist. Look closer and you’ll see that the front of the dress is unusual; one side draping while the other remains fitted.

The coat is also rather tasty as well: a short, classic mac style with added flair and a bold ribbon bow tie at the waist.  The upright collar gives the whole look a lift and makes for a fashionable finish. PicMonkey ImageI paired mine with a new favourite hairstyle from TRUTH called ‘Lady’ that comes replete with a ton of styling options for the hair and the scarf.  Sadly,  there wasn’t a leopard print texture choice in the HUD, so to get my cat print fix I added some favourite ATOMIC shades.  I look like I should be a Private Detective, or flashing my underwear at passers-by, but in fashionable style, obviously! I told you it was a good round this time at FAMESHED didn’t I?

Be My Valentine?

Is it me or has FAMESHED really knocked it out of the park the past few months? I’ve enjoyed their recent editions more than I have in a long time, and I congratulate them on managing to keep it fresh and fantastic when other events can look stale by comparison. I made a number of absolutely cracking purchases there this round, let me tell you all about them!

First of all, my frock. The dress I am wearing is called ‘Gia’ from REBEL HOPE DESIGNS.  I really like the simple styling that’s accented by fluted sleeves and a lace panel at the rear.  I also really like that it comes with options, us girls love our options after all, and you can choose a delicate sleeve (which is what I am wearing in the photo) and change the colour of the lace panel at the back.  The large sleeve option is very romantic so perfect for Valentines Day, but don’t go near any naked flames, because if you knock a candle over you’ll be barbecue!Snapshot_004.pngOn my tootsies, I’m sporting a pair of GOS’s finest, the ‘Lady G’ pump.  I was hoping for a leopard print or patent, version of these but I couldn’t see one (I am as dizzy as a bat though when I’m shopping at events so that doesn’t mean there isn’t one for sale, although if there isn’t please make them!) so I opted for my ever favourite red.  Now, Lady G is a bit special; GOS describe her as a “… classic high platform pump that is anything but basic. Four shoes in one, choose between a sky-high stiletto or block heel and an open foot or Mary Jane strap..” I opted for the classic heel, thicker and more substantial than a stiletto with a chunky pointed toe (the kind of toe that if you kicked someone in the nethers they’d know about for at least a week) and the aforementioned Mary Jane strap detail across the top of the foot.   Now, one of the things I have always loved about Gospel Voom‘s footwear is the attention to detail.  The texture is spot-on, it looks real and zooming in to check out these shoes is very satisfying.  Look at the clasp, it looks like it’s been fastened properly and you can even see a hint of the fastening bar behind the leather strap. I love the attention to detail like that.   The shoes are equally well textured inside, even though you’ll never see that element because you’ll be wearing them, and they sport branding on the sole.  They’re perfect.

Last but not least an honourable mention: I’m sporting new brow happiness from NAR MATTARU. Jade Glazner has long been a favourite creator of mine and I love her brows as much as I adore her tattoos and skins.  These brows are her latest and how I wish they were mine in real-life, I need more than some ABH brow pomade and concealer to shape these babies! Fortunately, in Second Life I can look utterly perfect, and these TARA brows work beautifully upon my AMARA BEAUTY ‘Hanna’ skin. They come with a HUD that allows you to choose from five colour variations, including a white brow option.  Glorious!

Finally shout-outs to the poses I’m using in this post; first-up for the main shot I’m using a nifty wee pose from AUTHENTIC POSES called ‘Confidence 04’, and the neon heart and pose are from a set called ‘Lovely Poses (Bento)’ by CNZ.  Both are from THE CHAPTER FOUR.

It’s starting to feel like Sweater Weather

Yup, it’s time to get your jumpers out of the cupboard folks, because Autumn is fast approaching so it’s time to get cuddled up wearing your favourite sweater.  This one is already a treasured item of mine, it is just scrumptious! It’s from COCO @ FAMESHED and the texture and style of it are mouthwateringly good.  I love the fact that it’s tucked in at the front too, it looks very realistic indeed.  This is another of those times where I’m drooling after something in Second Life.  I’ve been looking for a jumper just like this one in real life and I cannot find it, ARGHHH!

To finish this look I’m sporting hair by FOXY and I’m still wearing my ‘Skin Of The Week-Blair’ because frankly I love it and don’t want to take it off! My cosmetic layers were a find from ANYBODY. Morgana Hilra wrote about this amazing palette from SHINY STUFFS at the event and she was right, it’s fantastic!
