Shoe Fair Thank You!

I was going to do this really epic thank you post thanking all the designers who were kind enough to send me shoes to blog for the Shoe Fair this year. By the way, did you all know we raised $1,174,769L this year?? Amazing! But after rezzing some shoes out, it looked like I just like to cut feet off, and then when I turned shadows on, my hair looked crazy, and…well, here you go.

Style - Thank you!

I’d love to say Truth did those streaks just for me, but well, SL was my colorist this time. *sigh*

ANYWAY.

I wanted to thank the Shoe Fair designers who were so amazing to me this year! I was utterly impressed with everything you did, and I absolutely enjoyed talking to all of you, even if we were just playing the offlines game! 🙂 I am deeply apologetic to any of you that I was unable to blog due to some unforeseen real life circumstances, and believe me, your work WILL be included in this blog in the future.

The Shoe Fair may be over for this year, but I am certainly not finished shopping for shoes!

Purrfect 10 Florence

Shoe Fair - Purrfect 10 Florence

Purrfect 10‘s Florence sandals are just what you’d expect – Perfect! When you need a strappy heeled sandal, but dainty thin straps just won’t cut it, these are the ones you will want to run to pick up.

With wide straps, a good ankle band, and a thin lace up front, these beauties look as good with jeans as they do with your slinkiest dress. Purrfect 10 does something wonderful, too, in that all of their shoes can be dyed black [either the whole shoe or pieces] so it’s really like getting two pairs in one!

All the colors in the shoe, including the colors to tint your feet, are done by menu, not by HUD. There is a Skin Toner to help you tint your feet, and it’s really quite simple. Even if you are new to the skin matching process, you should not have much trouble at all getting these to match any skin.

Purrfect 10 can be found on the Ruthenium sim at the Shoe Fair. [Ends on the 27th!]

N-Core Caprice

Shoe Fair - N-Core Caprice

I truly believe that summertime is just MADE for sexy, strappy, beautiful heels.  If these Caprice heels aren’t on your feet this summer, you are missing out!

Sleek and slim, these heels have a lovely wooden base with some nice metal studs.  The feet are nice and feminine, with a cute little toe ring.  The well designed HUD allows for some customization on colors of the soles and metals, along with letting you change your nail polish.  There are 12 preset skin colors, as well as the ability to enter the RGB numbers for your skin for a better match.  I used the ColorCop program to find the RGB of my skin and I think it came out pretty well!  A notecard is included with some of the more popular skin tone numbers so you shouldn’t have too much of an issue getting your skin to match.  The Caprice heels come in 14 colors, but considering how many outfits you could pair them with over the coming summer months, you will probably just want to fatpack these darling heels.

N-Core can be found on the Iridium sim at the Shoe Fair.

Completely Open

Oh G Field. Why do I love your beautiful shoes so much? I just can’t seem to help it. Is it because they are extremely great quality? Is it because they are so affordable? And did you SEE the new ones at the Shoe Fair? No? Let me show you…

Style - Completely Open

The Open Boots “Vilda” are just so gorgeous. A great pump with a slouchy little cuff, it also has a feather decoration that is removable. And get this – The fatpack of 10 colors is only $1000L! Some shoes cost way more than that for just one pair!

No, G Field. I don’t know why I love you so. I just know I hope you never never change.

Reek Raid Light Ups

Shoe Fair - Reek Raid Light Ups

It’s not always easy to find a nice pair of trainers that aren’t Chuck style or that don’t make your feet look like boats. Riq Graves of Reek has managed to do it, though, with his new Raid Light Ups. Oh, these are just too cute for words! You don’t just get an amazing pair of sneaks, but true to their name, they have little flashes of light when you walk! I can’t even tell you guys how long I spent walking around just to watch my shoes.

The shoes come with sizes for both men and women, but of course are able to be resized so that you get your perfect fit. The nifty little HUD allows for over 20 color options, plus 5 presets. Honestly, you can customize these to your heart’s content. I just went with a preset for this photo because it was pretty!

Reek can be found on the Rhodium sim at the Shoe Fair.

Lapointe & Bastchild – Dita Candy

Last year I took 2 weeks off while working on the Shoe Fair blog, but I figure if other people are cross-posting, then I will too! 🙂 I’m sorry if you see this twice.

Shoe Fair - Lapointe & Bastchild, Dita Candy

Bootgasm. That’s a word I’ve heard a lot before, but it really takes a special boot to really make me say it. The Dita Candy boots from Lapointe & Bastchild speak to everything dramatic, elegant, and fierce that is in me, and yes, it’s totally a bootgasm situation!

The sleek leather bootie is topped by a buckled pinstripe cuff, and the stripes are able to be changed to 10 different colors via HUD. [11 if you count the default black, which is what I am wearing in the photo.] The boots have a lovely menu system for fitting, as well, and you can really get the perfect fit for you.

Can you see why I said bootgasm? Trust me, if these aren’t on your feet soon, you are going to be incredibly sorry!

Lapointe & Bastchild are found on the Osmium sim. Go! Go now!
