I am partial to Gos Boutique because not only does Gospel Voom make wonderful shoes, he is also a great boss. I’m happy to have been his CSR going on 11 months now!

For me, these shoes are the star of the show. Dita, is a hot and sexy shoe with a bound corset up the spine, how perfect is that? These shoes are also only 595L a pair or 2499 for the fat pack of six. I love me some Gos Boutique.

This pose that I am using to show of these shoes (and not much else) can be won in a Gacha from An Lar Poses by Katya Valeska which is at Shoetopia right now waiting for you to win it!

I am also wearing hair from Tram, and skin from Glam Affair (Vera) My eyes are from Ikon.

League @ Shoetopia

I’ve really been enjoying my visits to Small Town Green. I decided to pair these warm and fluffy boots from League which you can buy tomorrow at Shoetopia with some Collabor88 finds for my look today.

My cape is from u.f.o, my skirt is from Ison and the goggles and the little squirrel are from OhMai. All of these things you can get right now at the November round of Collabor88.

A closer up shot of the adorable boots from League. They are entirely worth getting the fat pack of because they come with a really nice hud and several colors and options. Get your butts to Shoetopia tomorrow!

Apple Fall at Shoetopia

1 copy

One of the best parts about winter is finding a warm and comfy pair of boots that can withstand the elements. One of the stars to me that stands out at Shoetopia is Apple Fall.

Apple Fall is one of those stores to me where I love just about everything that he makes and these boots – I love a lot. The texturing and style is awesome and both men and women can wear them.

I shot these photos at Small Town Green. The camping stuff is from What Next and it’s perfect for camping any time and I think it looks great in this setting. My warm weather clothes are from House of Fox at Collabor88.

House of Fox is one of those mesh clothing stores that I’ve been liking more and more. This outfit is a favorite right now. My scarf is from the Arcade from Fatewear from last year and my hair is from Tram. My skin is from Glam Affair.

Kitties Lair @ Shoetopia and Collabor88

kitties

Cute boots! I love them and Kitties Lair makes some cute ones for Shoetopia (which opens on the 15th). Fall is such a boot season, you know? I can remember Kitties Lair as one of my first favorite places to buy dresses and shoes from a long long time ago and it made me smile to see them at Shoetopia. I thought that they went with my outfit from Collabor88 quite perfectly.

Collabor88 has some awesome things this round. The hair that I am wearing is from Clawtooth. The dress is from R2. and the jewelry is from Yummy. Collabor88 is great this round and the theme is Industrial Chic.

The tights are not from Collabor88 but they are a mix of Erratic ripped tights and Izzies Fishnets. My poses are older and from Marukin.

Hello! I have some pretty shoes and feet to show you. Siddean Munro has made a brand new Slink foot with an even higher base for even higher heels. This is win! But before I talk more about that check out the ankle that I’m wearing on these brand new feet.

Caelan Hancroft of Cae has made some cute little Gacha anklets that can be moved and shift around to fit almost any foot. These are super detailed and very cute! There are several to win and the one that I am showing is a rare.

Siddean Munro of Slink has four new releases waiting for you on Friday when Shoetopia opens (on sim number one) There are two new pairs of heels, one pair of boots and the new foot base. I look forward to seeing more shoes with this base! My feet feel so spoiled today!

Shoetopia: Your Shoe Heaven in the Clouds

build

In a few day’s Shoetopia will be open access for all.

I wanted to take a few photos of the build and share them. There are two sims and they are in a large circle with two offsets on each sim for the gacha machines, the sponsors in the middle and all the other stores around the circle. I like the layout and design of Shoetopia and it was easy to get around which is important in a fair in Second Life.

I have a copy of the official press release for the event that I’m going to post below. It has more information in it and better put than I could give you:

SHOETOPIA 2013, The long awaited return of the ‘premiere shoe event’ in Second Life is set to open on Friday, November 15th, 2013.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Press Contact: Anessa Stine

November 12, 2013 — Announced way back in January of this year, SHOETOPIA is the reincarnation of the most popular footwear event in Second Life, SHOE FAIR, which has been missing in action since June 2011. Now, almost 10 months since it was announced, SHOETOPIA 2013 is set to open on the 15th of this month with an ethereal build by Artist Rebeca Bashly, that promises to have you in Shoe Heaven! Excited designers and shoe lovers alike, have delighted at the promise of a ‘New Kind of Shoe Fair’, and the anticipation has been building steadily as opening day draws closer.

Conceived by long time Event Coordinators, Business Managers and Second Life Fashion Bloggers, Sophia Harlow and Anessa Stine, SHOETOPIA is their first collaborative effort combining a mutual love of fashion, respect for ingenuity and quality, and desire to create a memorable and special annual event to fill the void in the Second Life event calendar created when SHOE FAIR failed to take place in 2012. Says Sophia, “When the thought dawned on me that there needed to be a footwear event in Second Life again, there was only one person that I approached. Anessa has always been a ‘Shoe Girl’, and her creative vision was the perfect compliment to my detail oriented planning skills and excellent relationships with many SL Creators.” Both Sophia and Anessa are thankful to the many volunteers who are dedicated to making this event a success.

Carrying on the tradition of it predecessor, SHOETOPIA has selected the charity organization Soles4Souls as its ‘Sole’ beneficiary. This is a charity that touches all shoe lovers, an organization that not only supports those in need domestically, in North America, but also those met with disaster around the world. Says Anessa, “An organization that puts shoes on the feet of underprivileged children so they can attend schools, allows domestic abuse victims to have a second chance at entering the workforce in style, creates jobs in the most needy of communities, and uses the slogan ‘every shoe deserves a Second Life’, it could not be a more worthy or appropriate organization to benefit from all of our efforts.” The timing of SHOETOPIA could not be more advantageous to Soles4Souls, already hard at work preparing to assist those affected by the recent storms in the Philippines and Southeast Asia, each participating designer will be offering up an item that will see 100% of its proceeds go directly to Soles4Souls.

With more than 50 of Second Life’s most talented footwear designers, and dozens of incredible contributing gacha designers, there will something for everyone on this stroll through the clouds. Major Sponsors; Slink, Gos Boutique, Just Design and LaRoo, and additional sponsors; ISON, KOSH, lassitude & ennui, House of London, KoiKoi, fri.day, sYs, House of Fox, Glam Affair, G Field, Valiant and ViveNine/Ryvolter, will all be releasing new items at SHOETOPIA, as will each and every one of the participants. Says Anessa, “The response from designers has been so positive, we are overwhelmed by the quality of the footwear at this event.”

SHOETOPIA will be pleased to welcome all of you to visit our slice of ‘Shoe Heaven’ between November 15th and 30th of this year, in what promises to be the first of many ‘Shoetopian’ events to come!

Adventures in Industrial Chic for Collabor88

frost copy

I have to admit, when I first found out the theme for November’s round of Collabor88 I couldn’t imagine what people might make. But as I experiment more and more with some of the pieces from this round, I dig it.

frost2 copy

This dress and metal hair bow are from Katat0nik. I’m really happy that Katat0nik is still making amazing things. I can remember them from my much younger days in SL. I fell in love with this dress and bow as soon as I saw it.

These boots too – from Collabor88 guest this month Beetlebones. I used to have a pair of boots like this when I was a teen and I wore them until they fell apart pretty much. This necklace from Boom, which is so detailed and intricate has fast become one of my favorites as well.

I’m also very glad to see Lamb back at Collabor88 which is who made the hair that I am wearing in this post!

I shot these photos in Small Town Green. My poses are from Marukin and my skin is from Glam Affair (Vera – Horror edition) Have an amazing Sunday!
