Cobalt Fever

I admit, I have a rather small large addiction to shoes. In fact, my inventory contains well over 300 different pairs. Hard to believe, right? But, when someone throws a pair of free shoes at me, I am not one to look a gift horse in the mouth. The first thing I do is parade around naked on my sim in only my shoes. Ha! Just kidding.

Really, though, one of the biggest parts of any outfit is all about the footwear, so when Alphonse sent me these Amarissa heels by ILLI, I was stoked that they came with a HUD that allows you to fully customize the colors of the shoe. Not just with preset colors, but also with a color picker as well. Surely every bloggers dream.

Even better than that, but you can get these great heels, that are compatible with SLink and the new Belleza mesh body for a 99L special until February!

I also wanted to comment on these new leggings by Bueno. I had to admit, I was a bit dense, wondering why they were called ‘bubble’ leggings… until I tried them on. They make my butt look so cute and well… bubblicious, no?

Dipped in Gold

Glamistry has returned yet again with a gorgeous new set of heels for the SLink high feet. Gather round ladies, because these classic, pointed toe pumps come with an exotic, snakeskin design, cool metal accents and the option to change the tip of the shoe to whatever suits your fancy.

To go with the theme of my new dress and stole by Lethal, I decided on white and gold all around- perfect for winter. With the triangle theme, I was all set to grab a clutch that had caught my eye, but I was too late by the time the event was over. That’s what I get for being lazy.

Complimentary in Nature

Complimentary colors, like in green and purple, actually go really well together! Because of their striking composition within nature, I couldn’t think of a prettier place to display the green and purple boldness of the new Lyndsay Dress by Liv-Glam, then among the rolling, sunshiny hills of Bitacora!

I stumbled across this land during a lazy afternoon search for new sims to explore and I am so glad I did! The perfect picnic weather and harmony of colors within nature make Bitacora the perfect place for an outing.

I’ve finally, recently downloaded the new version of Firestorm, which enabled the new Second Life textures feature. I love it! Water sparkles, metal gleams and leather shines like the real thing! These new Glynco pumps from Hucci, an addon to the infamous SLink feet and this new Mermaid’s Serpent Eye ring by Maxi Gossamer are prime examples of the amazing features the new version of Firestorm include. What do you think of the new textures programming incorporated by Linden Labs?

Also upcoming this week is the new December round of the Arcade! I added the Zanzi clutch in violet from the March round to my outfit, but really, I can’t wait to get shopping in just a few hours and get a look at all of the new goodies that await us for the winter season! Have you checked out the new shopping guide, yet? What are you looking forward to the most?

Essentially Vogue

I love when I see things with my name in them, so naturally, I have to have it. Even better is when it reflects my style (or part of it!) This new Cara dress from Liv-Glam is a one-shouldered mesh dress. For the daring fashionista, it can be worn without the provided bra and panties, but I decided to play it safe and wear them for modesty’s sake. I wanted to glam it up into something elegant and sophisticated- something Sex and the City, perhaps, so I went with a high ponytail, an edgy peep-toe and flashy shades. The dress comes with a HUD that allows you to choose between six colors and is a fantastic piece to dress up or down.

House of Fox has a Runway Essentials set out for the Arcade that provided the perfect backdrop to my outfit. The complete set includes a dressing room, vanity with bench, assorted makeups, fashion clothing rack and cosmetic chair. There is only one more week left of the June round of the Arcade, so grab your taxi before it’s too late!

Mon Tissu

Mon Tissu has several great new releases lately, including this collared shirt and shorts. They’re sold separately in a wide array of colors and textures and can definitely be dressed both up and down.

I’ve taken a break from landscaping for a few days and found myself at the Tulip Mainstore, which has such a simple and pretty design that I thought I’d snap a few pictures. Oh, and did I mention they’re a part of this weeks Fifty Linden Friday?
