An interesting thought reared it’s head earlier today. The idea of culling your inventory just to make it less of a burden on the asset servers. Now Mel and I discuss this every other day, believe me that is truly how often he picks on me about mine.

Actually that’s not even accurate, it would be every day. Even Whimsy cops it from him, and hers and mine are almost the same in size. Whimsy scared the hell out of me last week, declaring that if it was causing a strain – Mel says that when I log back in after a crash the sim stalls – then eventually her and I wont be able to be on the same sim; at the same time.

Ashia is more brutal with hers, she gets all powered up and starts deleting things left, right and centre, mind you though she freaks me out by not even looking at what she is deleting. Which recently meant she had to buy something she had previously owned.

Luna mentioned in a plurk that came up about it, that she culls hers to less than 30 (I think it was) and that if she doesn’t use it in 6 months it is gone.

I am sorry but NO WAY JOSE! I cannot go that low, never ever ever. Lately I have been going back and forth in my inventory to show older and new items together… as I always say ‘Everything Old is New to Someone”. I have gotten rid of items that are of no use to me at all, I know I have to completely strip down my furniture folder and what not…I did also get rid of over 3000 wigs recently from one designer, just because of all the colour options I wouldn’t wear…but I do have them backed up in boxes ‘just in case’.

I know it is out of hand, and I know I am a horder lol. But my inventory is my timeline here just as much as my blogs are. I have items from every store I have managed – most of those are boxed unless needed – I cannot imagine not being able to reach into it and pull out an item I know would be perfect for a pic, or blog post regardless of its age.

The absolute beauty of NO TRANSFER items is the ability to unpack, wear, and delete…just make very sure you kept the box. No Transfer means COPY, which means UNLIMITED amounts of said item. Example is the gown I unpacked again today to wear, the deep red one, that I modified so you could see my shoes. I have had that archived in the red for probably a year, the black is left out. Now I will delete the folder, because I know I have it safely boxed.

There is so much of that that you can do as a consumer, and so much that can be done to ensure that is easier as a creator. You see many are against boxed items, usually because they want to see what they are getting with an item, and that is fair enough.

But things such as fat packs etc, are better off as seperate boxes, yes you can right click take copy your single vendors and pop them into your fat pack vendor DONE, it is as simple as that. Creators please don’t make your boxes no copy though, when the items inside of it are no transfer, it is a bit dangerous to make the box they travel in different perms.

Anywho, once you unpack and wear, you can delete, just again be sure you have a back up box that actually does contain the items ready for next time. This also applies for high price items, UNLIMITED UNPACKS, if you mod it and mess it up, unpack another one, if you cannot find all the pieces, unpack another one.

If you spend a bit more than you are used to, and you feel that that item is something you would hate to lose, if it didn’t come in a box, then before you do anything else, make a box and drag copies of the items into it, name it exactly as it is on the item folder and save it to a different folder. I know of some people that sink valuables under the house lol.

Anyway enough of all that.

The shoes I have on were created just after the opening of the Footwear Expo, so they are available at the store and the fair, in different colour sets. This set is of course the darker tones that I asked Siddean to release, for those of us who love our ballet shoes with an edgier colour base.

I was also lucky enough to choose the name of them, seeing as Ashia and I are both lovers of our ballet stuffs, I wanted them to be named after her, if Siddean liked the idea… she did, so once they were remade in the darker colours, and ready for release I bought a gift pack for Ashia, and lol she didn’t believe they were named that, she thought it was just so she could find them in her inventory that Siddean had edited the folder, and that is why she deserved them.

My first look was inspired by the movies, you know when you see a dancing movie, there is always that teacher/instructor that was a ballerina when she was younger yadda yadda , and she just has such a lovely graceful style about her, well that’s what I was going for with this look.

Modified the skirt on the second, so that you could see the gorgeous blood red slippers. The gown is beautiful full length, but something like this under is a perfect shoe to dance the night away. The third look could be ‘ More strippers are classically trained than you think ” look, lol but it was just something fabulous fun and silver to wear with the shoes..but if you want to call it that look go right ahead.

The skin is NEW and beautiful, I am not only loving the usual features of Laq skins, but the make ups on the Ania are just a bit different than the usual I believe. Mallory has added an incredible gloss effect to the lips, and the colour combination’s are just perfect. I did notice more colour this time around in the eyes especially, glad to see a beautiful green shadow amongst the pack.

Incredibly lined lids, and a really perfect under brow highlighted shadow look , that is not easy to do with the template the way it is. Mallory does her make up like someone who knows and spends time doing their own. There are such little hints at colour and shading, that can really make your eyes stand out, and it takes skill to do that.

Ania is again a more mature version of the Glow skins, sometimes depending on shape others in the range tend to side with a more youthful exuberance, so if that has been a concern to you in the past, then you should check out Ania for sure.

All the hair in the post, old and new is from Exile. All those lovely curls framing the face are such fun, and I really like that tousled lived in look for hair, cannot be too perfect all the time, can we.

There used to be a cafe, somewhere in Australia called Freckles. Above the counter was a sign that stated “A face without freckles, is like a sky without stars”. The idea being of course, that the light natural smattering of freckles adds a beauty and charm to a face, and without them, something is amiss.

Being one who has freckles, I kind of like that sentiment, I am however not a huge fan of make up and freckles, being that I would make sure to wear foundation to cover them, if I was in fact going all out to look all sultry and smoldering. Thank goodness in most cases we have options, to have or not to have.

The NEW released in the past hour, Estelle skins by LeLutka are a tad different. In the fact that they do have a freckle or two or three etc, but in such a way as to define and add that lovely beauty mark look to the face…I am totally bewitched by them.

The bodies of the skins are gorgeous, the same divine hip shading and detailing as the Eclat. But it is definitely the faces that give them so much charm. You get the light and dark hair base options, as well as light and dark brows, and because Minnu likes to think past her own self, she has given each hair colour their own uniqueness.

Having to cater to her own group of adoring females, she has made sure that each of them, even if wearing the same skins, will in fact have that little embellishment of the brows to call their own. I love it, and for me it is definitely what makes LeLutka what it is.

In my own group of friends we often have the same skins, same time…and with different shapes and bald bases etc, it will definitely go a little further to make us individuals. As you can see in the face shots, nothing changed accept the skin, and yet I look different, I love it.

Moving on to the clothing, Baiastice has recently released some divine dresses. Often RL art inspires SL fashion, and in this case it is the Art Nouveau Tiffany lamp that has inspired this very retro release. The long and short versions of the Tiffany Dress are equally divine. I do wish though that the sleeves from each came in both, as I love both options, but each dress has it’s own version.

The real attention to detail, and what made the short stand out for me, was not only the incredible flared bell sleeves, but the open front and back collar, with it’s deep dip. Not even wanting to wear hair that may take away from it, I chose to use the skin hair base option.

Versatility is key with Baiastice, and the ability to wear the items different ways, just allows your money to go further, such as being able to wear the shorter option as a romper as well, HOT HOT HOT and very Disco Diva.

Audrey, which of course makes us think of the must have little black dress, is the name of one of the other items in this release by Baiastice. Again the ability to wear it many ways, this dress is just beautiful, fitted in all the right places, with added flair if you so desire, or a tamer option when needed.

Moving on with these party dresses, to the perfect Dancing Shoes. These are Zara by Kitties Lair, and are one of my MUST HAVES from the Footwear Expo 2009. Not only are they gorgeous Tfront dance style shoes, but they are a set of two that are the charity shoes for the fair. The hud was painless, I had them matched to my skin in seconds, and there are save presets to make it easier.

I am really in awe of how far Kitties Lair has come with her shoes range, I have some fast favourites in my shoes folder from her store from way back, but these, and the other recent releases have definitely tipped the scales for me. Make sure you do not miss out on this set, there are of course other colours available, and they do have other bells and whistles like changing the heels colour etc…but the expo charity set is a MUST MUST MUST.

Footwear Expo 2009

Still so many items to show from Footwear Expo 2009. One of the stand out items for me was from a store I love to visit regularly. I have shown in the past their heels and boots, one pair are even open backed which I love bunches, and are actually set up in their booth at the fair too.

This New release boot is gorgeous. Divine texture work, on equally fabulous sculpted form. The Pauole boots are just must haves for sure, not only because of how wonderful they look, but also because of how inexpensive they are, especially for boots, but that is normal for R2.

Most of the clothing I am featuring today is LeLutka, the seperates they have been releasing of late are just perfect for mixing and matching, to their own; or other designers wear. I especially am in love with the Rockin Pants, they are a leather highwaist style pants, and are HOT HOT HOT. The work on the textures to give them that authentic look is remarkable.

The last few releases for LeLutka have been all about pants, and leggings. A big fan of both, this allows for such a broad scope of fashion ideas. Whether worn on their own, or with large oversized sweaters or dresses layered over them, there is no end to the possibilities of your imagination. But if your imagination doesn’t reach that far, you can check out many of the blogs that take care of those ideas for you. * Points to blog roll on the side ——>

Accessories too play a huge part in an overall look, and lately those have been coming from all over SL. I have been seeing a lot of designers step up to the plate in providing pieces that compliment their own style, as well as add to others.

Fishy Strawberry and Luck Inc have both recently added belts to their stores, first off with the Fishy Strawberry Geisha Leather Belt, these belts are done in the Obi style around the mid thoracic area, but can of course be resized with script and moved down around the hips as I have done for this pic. Luck Inc has made solid and print hip belts as well, a wide double holed belt look, very military in style, but totally chic.

Another thing when it comes to accessories, is don’t limit what comes with one thing, to only that thing. Perfect example is the bow in my hair, it isn’t actually in it, but it is actually from another hairstyle, but I loved the bow so much I dismantled a copy of the hair, and I add it to a number of styles as you have seen in the past.

Pulling out some older items, the first being an item from MichaMi, it is a piece from a set, which of course is wonderful. The other is a swimsuit by Persona, that was actually named after me, and I am honored because it was, because of the layering options, both pieces work well.

Again showing more of the fabulous new Winter2 Skins by Gala @ Curio. The make ups in these are wonderful, and the red lips in the smudgey make up, was perfect to show with the Rockin Pants…that kind of dancing until dawn, mascara running down the face look most hardcore partiers will know well.

My favourites would have to be the silvery based shadow ones, they are the Snow Angel ones, but all of them from top to bottom are fabulous.

I even played with my own decal today for this post, just because I wanted to add a little something, but couldn’t find one that sat in the right place. The first hair was a revisit to a incredibly popular store, I don’t get over there often enough, and until last night I only had this style in a mix blend.

I love Anette by Deviant Kitties, it’s such a classic updo, that because of the creator and just how you feel in it; carries over into mainstream.

But this post is mainly about the BOOOOOTS. J’s has recently released at the Footwear Expo these INCREDIBLE Thigh high boots in a gorgeous range of colours that match their previous release of ankle and knee high boots. What is also gorgeous about these boots is that they come in three heights, and as they are made using the shoe base as the actual boot itself, allowing for an extra tighter than tight fit. It is not an easy feat – pun pun pun – to achieve this look properly, many have done so over the years, and often it comes up short…but JB has nailed it.

For the super slick and shiny look of the black Thigh Highs from J’s, I went with a mix of Tank dress and wool pantys from Luck Inc…wanting to add a splash of something to the look, I opened up ps and made a starburst and made it tintable to get a similar hot pink in world. Now I did go looking at Decals made by others first, Artilleri and Stellar both have items with this kind of option, a jacket layer over a plain shirt allowing for the mixing of looks. But as the Luck inc Tank is so low cut, it didn’t match up properly so I improvised.

The Godfsts as they are called were a gift a long time ago from the owner of Gearshift, when Fia bought his nintendo belt and proceeded to drive me nuts with all the sounds. I still love these and bring them out every so often. There are actually three versions to the set, so if you aren’t into the spikes and other bits and pieces, the ones I have on are a nice fit.

With the Cherry Red printed Tank Dress, I of course went with the Cherry Red Thigh Highs…YUM. Adding a few more age old accessories, such as the Cherry bag and bangles, but with the NEW Addition of the Posture Collar from The Hat Mechanic that I was so grateful to beta test at the time of it’s creation. It was actually something that I begged for to be sold as a separate from her other items, and she went above and beyond and created a whole line of them in varies frontages and colours.

Just as new and simply divine, are the Raphael wings from Material Squirrel. All the bells and whistles you are used to in a Material Squirrel wing set, with the hud even including xcite compatibility.

The other day I did a sweater dress with corset overlay, this time another sweater dress this time from Luck Inc, with the other alternative Just Band from Nyte n Day…again tinted to match perfectly to the Thigh Highs from J’s. A much lower cowl neck , very revealing in this beautifully thick hemmed knit style. The other alternatives for this dress is a sheer version, that allows the knit to really stretch across the body, or just removing the cowl for a scoop neck look. Great for showing off such gorgeous Jewelry like the Tigers Eye set from Essentia.

All the scintillating skins I am wearing are from GALA @ Curio, yes I still cannot just say Curio it is odd to me. They are Winter2 the follow up of course to Winter1 that was released for Skin Fair and raved about. There are even more faces in this range that I will show in another post, these first three are  a peak into not just the beautiful overall skin, but the way in which the face is really illuminated and given such character with the make up ideas Gala comes up with.

I do not change my shape for skins, so I really see little nuances; in the way my shape wears them…and with the Gala @ Curio it is always there, that variation that comes through from skin line to skin line. This winter one for me has an air of change, naivety and innocence  that carries out through the eyes and glow to the cheeks. Maybe it is all in the name, that clearing of the old, and making way for the new signs of change..whatever it is, it is one of the reasons that Gala @ Curio skins speak to so many.

The last picture is me showing off the othertones available in this range. I am wearing the Little Miss Lingerie by 5th & Oxford again, because it is just so feminine and appealing to my sensibilities today. Also it is Roslin Petions Birthday week this week, as well as Autumn Hykovas of Tiny Bird, so if you see them around YELL OUT Happy Birthday.

More beautiful items from the Footwear Expo, I am loving the diverse range of this years fair. So far there has been an equal kind of ratio on new items and already released. But as I always say ‘everything old is new to someone” so those creators that didn’t get a chance to release new items for the fair, still have an audience.

I got all excited a few weeks back, when I saw the city fur hat from LeLutka, I even mentioned to Minnu that she needed to make us muffs for the cold weather, as I have always wanted one in Second Life, and funnily enough had still yet to find one. Now LeLutka has released a fur hat and muff combo as their LeLook Exclusive for this month.

I went to Elate the other day as mentioned, and was really excited to see a dress called Tuli, which of course makes sense when you realise that the latest Bella skins have a make up called Kellie lol. I decided that I wanted to go all out with the sweater dress. I grabbed one of the latest releases from Nyte n Day, the Just Corset in Sand, and adding a tint got it the colour I wanted. The Just Corset and Just bands are great to completely change, or enhance a look, coming on all layers they rock.

Back to the Tuli dress though, this sweater dress is snuggly, with the large cowl neck and extended sleeves you will feel all huggable in it. The leggings I am wearing are the Zaara’s Nishar Leggings in Ivory – again tinted – to add the same tone to them as the dress…because if I am going to be this warmed up, I need to get into some serious layering. I also at one stage just wore the knee high and thigh high sock versions of the leggings, which also created a fun look.

The sensational Big Sur boots are from YS & YS , they are featured at the footwear expo and are just glorious leather in a great range of colours. They definitely have a lovely lived in look to them, and a definite trip to the cobblers to have them perfectly fitted feet.

Also from YS & YS in the footwear department, is the Illetes Sandals. A roman sandal look, with the added bonus of not just being able to change skin, nails and toe rings, but also the ability to change the metals featured…I went with the bronze as it is a lot softer with the brown shades in the picture.

Again from Elate is the Penelope dress set combo. You not only get the colour top that you buy the outfit in, but also the white. Giving you two looks, and more if you choose to wear the tops on their own with other skirts or pants, or the skirt with different tops, it is all finished well to achieve that. I love the scaled look of the skirts on these dresses, as being a pisces they rock my fishness.

More tones of the beautiful Bella Skin by Tuli than the ones I took the main pics in. I am also wearing a latest release lingerie set from Blowpop,  lowrise boyshorts and triangle bra’s called Cassie, which is funny because the triangle bra reminds me of training bras we used to start out with when younger. Most recently Bonds of Australia brought back this look big time here, and the colour coordinating or not contrast look has been featured big time in their ads… so I am chuffed to have that option for Second Life too.

Footwear Expo 2009

Wow what a rollercoaster. I ended up online for 20+ hours straight, tried to sleep in this disgusting heat, and ended up back on three hours later. But with so many gorgeous shoes to take pictures of, with their equally beautiful counterparts of skin, hair, clothing and accessories…I am not too upset about lack of sleep.

I actually took some pics, and ended up stopping for a bit to meet up with Fae for a quick demo of skins. The funniest things have been happening with pictures kicking in with avatar baking for me lately, but that is a whole other enchilada.

The Lace Up boots by Anexx are hands down some incredible work, for boys and girls. YAY for the men, I was in FE for hours having to assure some the other night that there were in fact mens items at the fair. I love the work boot look, I was actually umming and ahhing over some others I saw the other day, that just weren’t doing enough for me, but it was the fates making me wait for these.

As other fates would have it, there was an all pink sale at pink outfitters I went to yesterday with Whimsy. I snapped up a few bits and pieces, and one item was the bermuda shorts that just perfectly went with the pink boots. I wanted to do a little more for this look, so I went a rumagging. Taking some older pieces by Canimal and adding a new but vintage twist with the cardi by Artilleri.

Definitely a back and forth mix up, with the bag a timeless classic by SLink and the hair the latest release from Nishant Zobovic who has returned to SL with the NEW Brand for hair, Anaphora.

The Gluttony skins by Red Queen are just gorgeous, whether going with the RP look, or the more sedate but captivating look of the first picture, it all works. How she features the eyes on her skins is always my favourite part, she really knows how to work those make up brushes.

If pretty in pink isn’t your thing, then go to the darker side with the second look. Ok not darker as such, but it sounded fun in my head. The NEW Release of the Oversized cardigan from Fishy Strawberry happened just as I was in the process of taking pics, and it is just splendid. I have to point out that Fishy – or Fi.St (does anyone else giggle at that in inventory?) -  is now doing fat packs, YAY.

They actually do come with their own socks, but with the prim attachments taking the same as the upper portion of the boots, they had to go, in favour of the WWI ones with garters. The cardigan actually comes with a more voluminous attachment to the middle, giving it more of a baggy look, but I wanted to go with the length of it, and keep it tight and fitted, it really is just snuggly yum yum.

Again the Lace Up boots by Anexx were just perfect, they have such incredible detailing, from the laces themselves to the little toggle prims on the sides. two options for each with the uppers, one of them being mouton, which is of course a shaved sheepskin giving extra warmth to the look.

You can also see in my pics that the insides are as beautifully detailed as the outters, no cutting corners when it comes to Machang’s creations, she really goes all out. I would love to see this style in a higher boot if possible, mid calf length would be sensational, with a flopped over tongue perhaps as an option…if you build it, they will come :P.

Peace out shoe lovers, and don’t forget proceeds of this years fair goes to help the children at Toys for Tots.

Footwear Expo starts at 10am HERE

Incredibly small prims are a challenge for anyone that builds, whether it be for clothing, Jewelry or accessories. It takes an ability to manipulate prims against all boundaries, there are of course nano prims now, and sculpties make that task easier…there are older creators who mastered it with regular prims though, and often it is just awe inspiring.

Whether old school or new skills, the task is hard, but the outcome can be incredibly satisfying. One creator doing amazing things with small prims and in this case shoes, is 2408 Alekseev and her store 24 Shoo Shoes. I know 24 from other endeavors and she has always been such an incredibly lovely person, and really cares about her business…seeing this progression over the past year into this incredible work is a delight.

Definitely catwalk inspired shoes, these are why we adore Second Life most I would say, the ability to wear spine snapping shoes with no aches or pains, other than making sure our skin matches, and believe me 24 has made that incredibly painless too. She has included two skin huds in her shoes, which genuis-ly  (ok possible made up word) are on an alpha layer that you can move your camera to make sure your legs are behind and get the perfect shade, its fabulous. Like I said incredibly detailed and just beautiful, you will have to see them for yourself.

The clothing I chose to feature the shoes with, are the sexy and seductive Feather Dress by LeLutka, such beautiful details to this dress, I am though missing a part of it which covers the breasts, but I liked it without and with Jewelry that I chose to let it go. Definitely runway worthy, this dress lets you dress it up even more with things such as the Dramatic lashes from PanJen, and some lovely Jewelry pieces from Sigma and Hair Rose from Essentia finished the look.

Then we have a much older dress from Tuli, this dress comes with a long skirt gown option that I adore, but of course because we were featuring the shoes I went with the shorter option, still such a classic the Gwen gown is, it makes me want to beg Tuli to make more and more clothing, when she is able to create such perfect pieces as these.

Perfect accessories from Glow Studios in the KOS Set, it even actually comes with a handbag, but it was enough without, and a wonderful soft gold, that just enhanced the richness of the whole look. The vixen skins by Gala were an easy choice for that severe yet gorgeous look I wanted to create, BAM! I am a serious catwalk model BAM BAM! – laughs as I tip off the stage. But seriously it really has that look for runway, especially with such incredible make ups, my obvious choice for the gold was Majesty make up.

Just remember whatever shoes you buy at the fair – and don’t forget part of most sales are going to charity, in some cases all -  make sure you WORK IT BABY!.

An interesting spin on things for this years Footwear Expo, is that there are going to be pose stores set up at the fair, and the exciting part of that, is that some – if not all – are going to be selling shoe style poses. Often it is difficult not only for bloggers and photographers to find the right shoe pose, but for shoe makers themselves. So if you do, or are planning to make shoes in the future, even if you aren’t at the fair this year, stop by the animation/poses stores and pick up some.

Footwear Expo – TELEPORT – starts at 10am tomorrow and a percentage of sales made at the event will go to charity.

One such pose is the one on the left by Olive Juice, who will be at the fair, showing off the NEW Demoness shoes by Kalnins. These shoes have as usual all the trappings of a Kalnins shoe with feet inbuilt. The hud has options to not just tint the feet and change nailpolish, but also to change the texture of the shoes from base colour, to heels, with the metal studs being either gold or silver.

The outfit I am wearing is from Twisted and Spoiled, an incredible store that does so many things, not only clothing, but shoes, hair and accessories, and most sets are complete including shoes and jewelry. I kid you not except for the shoes in this pic, all the accessories and clothing pieces can in one outfit. Definitely a right click wear kind of deal. The amount of work that goes into each piece is just fabulous and you will definitely be seeing more of them here in the future.

The skin I am wearing is a much loved Bella by Tuli, we waited patiently for its release after the past skin fair, and just recently it was released in Tuli’s main store – which is actually a temporary location while rebuilding -  Stunning make ups, and that divine breast enhancement she does so well as an option. Make sure you check the demos if you haven’t already.

The name July came about not originally as the name of the month at all, but in fact it was named that after Julius Caesar. Even though we are well past July now, these skins carry the name, and do so well.

They are lovely skins as usual from the PXL line, and with the brand new build, and all of Harts other endeavors  going on at the moment, it is amazing they got released at all. But they did, and just in time for Vanity Skin fair, that will be ending this weekend. There are lots of brow options for this skin, freckles and wonderful tones from light to dark..I actually left one tone out, because at the time I did think it was the tone I took the main pic in, my bad, but they are all there at the store.

I logged into SL yesterday with one mission, to get me to Lamb as fast as I could. The new Whoop De Doo hair is all win for me, and I am hoping that Lamb will do more of these bangs on her regular styles, Say with a Widows Peak would make me happier than Happy.

For now I am just over the moon with this style, and it fits my mood so well right now. A new release from Miseria this week, has me in the Bitter Jeans as well as the Ash cardigan..also from Miseria, I love the jeans, they have that worn in look, with a low slung hips finish, and the cardigans are twinset look adorable. A college student look for me; with even the HOC Glasses to add a touch of authenticity to my look. Jewelry by Essentia to wrap up the look, and away we go.
