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.
