Happy Toes

Its about a quarter of the way through Shoe Fair 2011 and I finally made it through two of the four-sim grounds.  Each shoe designer has one or more items marked for the charity soles4souls.org

I received a couple of blogger packs with samples of some new releases being offered by Purrfect 10 and Pixel Mode and so far, these are actually my favorites of my finds this year.

Left:  Purrfect 10;  Florence heels, chocolate/brass
Right:  Pixel Mode;  Fae, khaki

Pay no attention to horrible color-matching job I’ve done, I have yet to find the perfect match for my new skin.  But look at the level of detail on both of these!  To be  honest, I had never heard of Purrfect 10 before, but can I just say, WOW!  They now have a new customer and I’ve been putting together outfits to match these shoes, just so I don’t have to take them off.  I really love the very sexy, sky-high stiletto heel.  Of course Pixel Mode has been one of my go-to shoes for the Baby T’s and Lady T’s that seem to match just about everything I own.  Now I have a lovely summer wedge to add to my selections.

Left:  Donna Flora; Milva, black/silver
Right:  Donna Flora;  Anna, texture change

These two from Donna Flora are just exquisitely feminine and lovely.  I’ve not worn this designer before, but you can be sure I will in the future.  I’ll be making a trip to the main store in the very near future to scoop up as many more as I can afford!

There are four sims for the fair which will be open from May 14-27.  Here are the tp points provided:

Iridium  Ruthenium  Osmium  and  Rhodium

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Pink

Hair:  Truth;  Odette, champagne
Shirt:  Utopia;  Lola, pink
Skirt:  Leezu;  Zarah Flexi Skirt, soft white
I completely forgot to write down my style notes and I can’t remember which skin this is or the bracelet.  So sorry!

In my real life, I’m very much anti-pink.  Not because I dislike the color, but because any shade of it looks hideous with my skin tone.  So while in SL, I do tend to go a little pink-crazy.  There was no way I’d be able to choose between all the luscious pink goodies in my inventory, so it was imperative that I go shopping and buy something new (at least that’s what I tell myself).

I actually found this beautifully frilly lace top on Marketplace and dropped everything to go to the store in person.  It actually comes in a set with jeans, but I felt it called for something softer and I had just bought this skirt in several colors.

In other news, Shoe Fair 2011 opened today.  I was lucky enough to be one of the randomly drawn bloggers to gain access yesterday.  Unfortunately, even without all the crazed footwear shoppers my computer crashed every couple of booths, usually before anything had rezzed.  So I gave up.  Yeah, I suck.  But I have gotten a couple of blogger packs and I’ll show those off over the next few days.

The proceeds for selected vendor items do go to a fantastic charity (soles4souls.org) and its worth it to go check out all the yummy creations that make our toes so happy in SL.  There are four sims which will be open from May 14-27.  Here are the tp points provided:
