Heya! So I’m here to say that sometimes the glasses can start an outfit. I was talking with “Stylist to the stars” Vaki yesterday of the blog “Insert Funny Name Here” and basically she teleported me to Muism where lived the most perfectly fantastic sunglasses every created in SL. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit but these sunglasses are truly awesome.
So I began messing around with outfits and found my massive collection of Leezu folders and put on these pants.. and then some time later this jacket.. and then Vaki found the perfect green bra (cause I don’t normally buy fun colors.. in bras and such) at Pixel Dolls where all the lingerie is criminally cheap. Before I knew it I was looking fabulous.. so I went over to Voc.Linda in second life and found some lovely scenery and snapped this photo.
This morning I also messed around with another color of the Muism glasses and Leezu clothing and these terrific Pixel Mode shoes which you can still get at the Shoe Fair.. which if you are going to the Shoe Fair.. go soon I went today again and there was NOOOO lag.. and came up with the look below:
Hai! So one of the nicest finds to me at the Shoe fair came in the form of Baiastice. They have released some lovely shoes called Maxine and they are very much worth getting your butt over to the Shoe Fair to look at them in person. These shoes are first in the line of Spring/Summer shoes to be released by Baiastice this season.
All shoes come in two different sizes, normal and smaller avatars, and they are resizable and there are 20 different basic skin textures that are easy to match up with your current shade as well as more nail polish options that I’ve ever seen included with every shoe. I think that they are sexy and very affordable. These are one of my top picks for shoe fair.
I am also wearing a cute new release from *BOOM* in A Day on the Yacht in navy. Which is adorable and I took these photos at AM Radio’s Ferry sim.
When I first landed at the Shoe Fair, I saw a bag that I’ve liked for awhile that I’ve seen on plurk. It is the Bollywood Bag from Kari.. and normally I think purses and such are sorta silly in SL and in RL but I really did fall in love with this little messenger bag. At 125L it is a steal. It comes in both male and female sizes.
I took these photos at the Sick Sim. I like to go there and walk around. I always find some little detail there that makes the sim one of my favorites. I’ve blogged everything else that I’m wearing before but as a refresher.. The hair is from Truth. The Blazer and Park Avenue T-shirt are from Mon Tissue. The skirt is from Grixdale. The Stockings are from League. The black tie is from Armidi. The boots are from Gos and the skin is from Curio.
Pixel Mode by Shoe Fair Builder Tya Fallingbridge is located on the Ruthenium Sim of the Shoe Fair.
What I love about these shoes is that they are affordable. I believe they were less than 600L per pair. They are sexy, well sculpted, easy to tint and come in a huge variety of colors and a bunch of nail polish options. I also love the crease on the ankles giving it a very nice realistic effect.
I am also wearing Grixdale Long Vintage tank top in dust. The Grixdale Mini Skirt in smog. Hair from Elikatira, Nails from je’suis and skin from Laqroki. The pose that I am using is from Del May and the House and furniture stuff in the background are from Awesome Blossom who has an adorable cottage out for Super Bargain Saturday.
The theme of the Shoe Fair this year is Minimalism and it is perfectly executed by Tya Fallingbridge of Pixel Mode. I experienced little to no lag from the build and was able to walk around fairly quickly looking for the stores of my interest. The stores are compact and easy to navigate and things loaded for me fairly quickly.
The Shoe Fair is also sponsoring a Charity, the same as last year which is the Soles4Souls charity which has a simple concept: “we procure shoes and get them to those in need.” To me shoes are something we put on every day, and perhaps if we have them we take for granted that others might not have them and by supporting this event your donation could mean the world to someone else.
