Heavenly Boots

So it’s getting a bit colder, the leaves are falling and it’s raining. It’s autumn and it’s beautiful. But the most important thing this kind of year is to make sure to keep warm and dry to avoid getting sick. And the most important thing to do that is some nice boots. So I went today and bought boots. Nice boots. Maitreya Gold boots. Maitreya Gold Shearling Boots. In black. And I love them. I didn’t go to some autumn sim to test them – I went to my favorite sim, World’s End Garden. It’s just so beautiful…

  • Dress: Grifha (Camel) – Sissy Pessoa for Baiastice

Now I have to gush a bit about this hair. It’s so amazing. Braids and a mohawk, all in one. Pretty, pretty, pretty – and so cool!

And I know, I’m supposed to be doing a shoe challenge but these combat boots are really favorites of mine and they felt right. 🙂

All about the shoes (Shoe Fair #11)

So of course with Shoe Fair going on, sometimes you have to focus on the shoes. And when you’ve challenged yourself to use all your shoes (Stupid idea, btw!), you have to even more. And when the shoes you’re wearing are not only Maitreya Gold (sighs …) but also the new oddly fantastic Maitreya Gold Salience shoes, well, you not only have to focus, you have to stop and wonder and gaze in awe.

I’m pretty sure these shoes aren’t for everyone but I am so in love with them. They are weird and feathery and amazingly detailed. And I got them in purple. Purple might just be my favorite color!

These shoes aren’t cheap – Maitreya Gold never are. But they are beautiful, well-made and they come with several color choices in both nylon socks as well as tights. And these are actually the first Maitreya shoes I bought – afterwards I bought the Moxie wedges since I’ve been wanting to get them forever and these Salience shoes were so amazing.

What I’m wearing:

  • Dress: Eva Dress (Plum) – Kellie Iwish for  Elate!
  • Fishnets: Fishnet tights (black) – Annyka Bekkers for Blowpop
  • Stockings: Maitreya Gold NylonSocks (Violet) – Onyx LeShelle for  Maitreya
  • Shoes: Maitreya Gold Salience (Violet) – Onyx LeShelle for  Maitreya (Available at  Shoe Fair)
  • Necklace: Long Tassel Necklace in Silver – Caroline Apollo for Caroline’s Jewelry
  • Sunglasses: Custom Sunglasses v. 3.2: Compulsive – Gospel Voom for Gos
  • Tattoo: AITUI Tattoo Stars 02 Face Tat – female fit – boy of crows (Jesseaitui Petion) for Aitui
  • Makeup: Basic Liner Purple – monica Outlander for Miamai
  • Hair: Oh Sugar (Restaurant Ketchup – Lamb Bellic for  !lamb
  • Eyes: ‘Sunrise’ Eyes (Deep blue) – Ikon Innovia for FASHISM
  • Skin: Emma (fair, 06 Slate – copper brows – freckles) – Tuli Asturias for Tuli
  • Shape: Bodyshape 1 (Avie) – Emilia Redgrave for REDGRAVE (modified by me)

So the shoes – I can’t post this without posting a closeup of these gorgeous shoes.

Some days you like to dress it up a bit (Shoe Fair #10)

So I have been struggling with this outfit for a while. I bought the pants at Culture Shock and I didn’t really feel like I had anything in my inventory to go with it. Then I got a dress as a group gift from Miamai and thought the top of the dress would work with the pants. But … no, the shoulders and the chest were to bare – it didn’t work. So when I happened to find this amazing shawl from Lika Ruby at one of the many fundraisers for Japan, I was ecstatic. First, because it’s just so gorgeous – second, because it totally worked with this outfit!

I got these amazing corset boots at Shoe Fair and they are really cool – another great find from this year’s Shoe Fair. Also, notice the necklace. I haven’t always been a fan of the jewelry from Donna Flora but when I had put this outfit on, I thought – it needs pearls. Now, I know no better place to go and find pearls than Donna Flora but instead of pearls, I fell in love with this necklace and there actually were a lot of other great necklaces – and some really cool rings too!

What I’m wearing:

  • Shirt: Precious Silver (part of dress) – monica Outlander for Miamai (group gift)
  • Pants: Oona Black Sequin Pants – Neferia Abel for L`Abel
  • Shawl: +LR shawl (onyx) –  Lika Ruby for +Lika Ruby+
  • Fishnets: Fishnet tights (black) – Annyka Bekkers for Blowpop
  • Boots: Corset Boot – Ladies Who Lunch (Available at  Shoe Fair)
  • Necklace: IRENE necklace – Squinternet Larnia for Donna Flora
  • * Makeup: evening (set 1d) – Mattie (mattie.rae) for perception
  • Tattoo: AITUI Tattoo Stars 02 Face Tat – female fit – boy of crows (Jesseaitui Petion) for Aitui
  • Hair: Kristin 2.0 (auburn) – Rei Gully for Zero style
  • Eyes: ‘Sunrise’ Eyes (Deep blue) – Ikon Innovia for FASHISM
  • Skin: Emma (fair, 06 Slate – copper brows – freckles) – Tuli Asturias for Tuli
  • Shape: Bodyshape 1 (Avie) – Emilia Redgrave for REDGRAVE (modified by me)

Moody

Feeling a bit moody …

My friend – the best enabler in SL – Viki recommended I went to Insanya for some retail therapy to cheer me up and she was right – bought this dress and a pair of capris and felt better. Then I went to my favourite place in SL – World’s End Garden. It’s being changed right now so looking forward to seeing what it will look like when they are finished with it.

Instead, I went to The Docks – a place I’ve been meaning to visit for a long time and it’s amazing, although small. Totally worth it! It gives me a Van Gogh kind of vibe and I love Van Gogh so it was a perfect fit for me both to cheer me up, but also to take some moody pictures in. The Docks is made by Scottius Polke, an artist I’ve seen work of before and really like.

What I’m wearing:

  • Dress: Cotton Shirt Dress (Soil) – Tatyana Ultsch for Insanya
  • Fishnets: Fishnet Tights (Black ripped) – Annyka Bekkers for Blowpop
  • Stockings: Side-Gartered Stockings (Brown – black garter) – Nena Janus for *League*
  • Boots: Combat LOL  – Filthy Adored for Bottle Bird (Available at  Shoe Fair)
  • Necklace: Dogtags – Tonk Tomcat for Tonktastic
  • Makeup: Runny 3 – Tuli Asturias for Tuli
  • Hair: Action Womens Hair Heather (fire) – Action
  • Eyes: ‘Sunrise’ Eyes (Deep blue) – Ikon Innovia for FASHISM
  • Skin: Emma (fair, 06 Slate – copper brows – freckles) – Tuli Asturias for Tuli
  • Shape: Bodyshape 1 (Avie) – Emilia Redgrave for REDGRAVE (modified by me)

I have to say I might have been a bit unfair the other day when talking about Bottle Bird‘s Fritillari pumps. I went back to  Shoe Fair to look for something else and decided to visit Bottle Bird’s booth to see the vendor pictures – and it was me remembering incorrectly. The shoes I’ve bought look like the ones in the vendor photos so my bad. Today I’m wearing a pair of combat boots from Bottle Bird and they are very, very cool indeed. Big and chunky and abused and with strings tied around them to keep them on – love them! They’re just right!
Also – have to mention the hair. It’s from Action, for both men and women, and I just love it. It even has the perfect name – pineapple!

So although I look sad in the pictures, I’m happy again 🙂

The Fashion Military

One of the things I love most in Second Life is taking bits and pieces and putting them together to create an outfit. Sometimes, it’s individual pieces – sometimes pieces from an outfit. This is put together by pieces bought at various times with no specific look in mind – but suddenly it all came together.

I like standing out a bit – not looking like everybody else. Although I would like to add something to my avatar to make her unique, for now I’m settling for creating looks that are just me. Hopefully, my individual style will set me apart and give me the uniqueness I’m after – without adding antlers, horns, ears … all things, that somehow doesn’t feel completely right for or true to me.

What I’m wearing:

  • Dress: Madame Eiffel Dress (Pink) – Archan Allen for Bounce
  • Jacket: Riot Military Jacket (Purple) – Naith Smit for NSD
  • Hat: The Soldier on Big Maneuvers – The Girl with a Gun (Faina Cortes) for La Malvada Mujer
  • Boots: Curvaceous Boot (Pink) – Gospel Voom for Gos
  • Fishnets: Fishnet Tights (Purple) – Annyka Bekkers for Blowpop
  • Necklace: Groovy Peace Necklace (Multi) – Abraxxa Anatine for EarthStones
