Only one of us can be the star

On Sunday I will be traveling and not sure how often or how good my internet will be to log in and blog.  This means I have from today until Sunday when I leave to be able to get in as many posts done in both blogs to show some of the great things you can find at ongoing events.

Today I am featuring a few things from all over the grid.  The first are these amazing peacocks by JIAN at Collabor88, which is celebrating their 5th birthday. It’s been only 3 days since they opened and trying to get in right now may prove to be a little difficult.  The peacocks come in a worn, rezzable or static version, plus two texture options.  Shown is the blue texture, the other is albino and all this for just $288L during the event only.

The wood bench is by Industry 7, available at the newest round of The Liaison Collaborative.  Two versions, a wood or metal and each come with 13 female/male sitting animations and 6 couple.  I need to point out that I am not using any of the sitting animations in the chair.  This is due to the fact that I needed a pose that would show off the shoes and dress a bit better and the sits in the chair are more geared to wearing pants or dresses that are straight.

On9 opened its doors on August 9th and I’m wearing this lovely striped dress by Snowpaws, a women’s fashion store that has been around a long time. You will be able to find this original mesh dress in 5 options of the stripe and non kind.

The last item being featured are the shoes. On August 14th, “In Your Shoes” will open it’s doors and Oh lala! is participating with these heels called Popy. They are white with a color bow in front and in back with a ribbon that weaves around the heel and are made to fit the Slink high feet.

Your support of this event by buying shoes will go a long way.  As 30% of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Mexican Diabetes Association in support with Virtual Miss Latin America Organization.

Enjoy the rest of your Thursday!

It’s that wonderful time of the month again where you can grab two pair of shoes for the price of one for the 21Shoe Event that hits the grid on June 21st.  If you are not familiar with the 21Shoe Event. It’s a monthly event that takes place on the 21st of each month within Second Life and offers you the opportunity to purchase new and exclusive shoes at two-for-one pricing.  Designers are given the option to provide either new or exclusive shoes. So if you love shoes it’s a great bargain to take advantage of.  There is also an in-world group for you to join that will keep you informed of the event and as a member you will be entitled to monthly group gifts.

Some good news!  Starting this month instead of having 24 hours to shop the time has now been extended to 48 hours.  This change is to make sure all of our friends around the world get a chance to also shop and pick up some greats shoes.

This month there are twelve designers participating and today I am showing you the Sabot Janis Polka Dot heels from G&D The Italian Style.  This is one of two fabulous pairs from this designer. Shoes are made to fit the Maitreya, Slink and The Mesh Project.

So ladies get your pocketbooks ready… the time is only days away.

It’s almost that time again ladies where you can grab some fabulous shoes for the price of one.   The 21Shoe event is every month on the 21st and only for 24 hours can you buy two pairs of exclusive shoes from some of the established shoe creators in Second Life.  I’m showing two pairs from different designers that are participating this month.  The first picture are the pumps from G&D that are made to fit the Maitreya mesh body, the Slink high feet and The Mesh Project body.

This second pair denim heels is made by KC Couture and has been made to fit the Maitreya mesh body, Slink high feet and the Belleza mesh body.  If you want to see the other shoes for this month, check out the 21Shoe  website where the pictures of the shoes are being added daily.   If you want to stay informed about the event and get some great gifts as well, there is a group in-world you can join for a small fee.  This month’s gift is 12 exclusive fashion poses courtesy of Thirty Loop Animations.

The last thing I want to mention is this brick path set by Jian that she is releasing tomorrow for 25L Tuesday. Seriously, that’s a steal!   The brick path is low impact, and has 26 pieces and 12 texture options that can be changed either piece by piece or to all paths of this set by one click.   After tomorrow the price will go up, so make sure you grab it.

Shoes 096

21Shoe is right around the corner in a few days with some more fabulous shoes this month. For those of you who may not be familiar with this event, it is a monthly event where  you can get exclusive shoes never to be sold again. What makes it even more exciting is that you get two for the price of one.  I’m showing the “Los Angeles” shoes from Essenz that are made to fit the Slink and Maitreya high feet.

The shoes are yellow and peach and will also come with a HUD to change the sole and metal colors.  Make sure to check out the website to see the other great shoes that will be available only on the one day of the event, which is always on the 21st of the month.   Plus if you join the group you can get all the news and also group gifts.   All the shoes can be purchased at the store location for those participating in this round.

I am also featuring these new mesh sunflower field plants from Little Branch that you can find at this month’s Liaisaon Collaborative.  They are super realistic and great for photos and doing up your landscape.   I’m am wearing this lotus headband also from Little Branch, that if you click brings up the menu to change colors.  You can find it tomorrow at the newest round of Shiny Shabby.

I am also wearing this nicely made blouse and skirt from NYU that is part of the Wayward Hunt that just started.  The swing from Pixel Mode has several poses and is also a gift for the Wayward Hunt. Lots of great stuff from some of the very well known creators in SecondLife.

Happy shopping and hunting!

SSD for the 21Shoe Event

Shoe 21 Event 2

It is nearing that time again for the new round of the 21Shoe Event where you get two pair of shoes for the price of one from participating creators.  One of those creators is Sax Shepherd Designs that will have these two pairs of jeweled stilettos that I’m featuring.  The first is the Mata Hari Oyster Satin, which is an exclusive color and style that will never be sold again after the event.  It comes with a HUD that can be used to resize and to change the full bright options on and off.

21 Shoe Event 1

The second pair is the Aphrodite Holiday Edition, which is a new shoe that has yet to be released.  This holiday edition offers red, blue and green soles with gold, platinum and black titanium jewelry options.  The HUD is very easy to use and will give you several choices in color and diamonds and this holiday edition will only be sold during the holiday season.

These shoes are made to fit with the SLink Avatar Enhancement High feet, so keep that in mind.  The other thing is this event is only one day for 24-hours from 12:01 am SLT.  I’ve noticed in group chat that many people get confused to where this event is held.  All shoes are to be found at the main stores on that day.  Check out the website at 21Shoe to see the other great shoes that will be sold on the 21st of December.

Two-for-one shoes.

21 Shoe Hopscotch

Coming soon is the new round of the 21Shoe, a monthly event that happens on the 21st of each month that gives us shoe lovers a two-for-one bargain on new and exclusive shoes. I’m showing off the shoes that HopScotch will have for this November round.   The red/gold shoes I’m wearing are called Capture and are designed to fit the SLink medium feet.  The second pair of shoes near the table are purple with an orange lining named Sidney, and also made to fit the medium mesh feet by SLink.

You can check out the 21Shoe website as the 21st approaches to take a look at the other shoes that will be available during this round.  All the shoes can be found at the main stores and you can also grab the slurls from the website.  The other thing about this event is that it only lasts 24 hours, from 12:01 am SLT on the 21st of each month.

21 Shoe YS&YS 2

You could say I’m doing a two-for-one post today.  So this is what happens when you’re still half asleep.  I’m wearing the two shoes from *YS&YS* that will be sold also on the 21st.  The Tivoli a smooth crocodile black and the Latina open toe in beige.  The shoes are made to be used with SLink high feet and you will get two versions of the shoes — one with “sock” in the name that are made to be used when you want to apply socks to your feet.

Remember the shoes are only available for 24-hours from 12:01 am SLT on the 21st of November.

I dream of shoes


No, I really don’t dream of shoes.  That would be a nightmare!  There was a time that I owned a tremendous amount of shoes outside my virtual world. I’ve since outgrown that bit of glitz and glamour in my life.  The last time I dared to wear a pair of stilettos for the day I found myself with these painful cramps in my calf by mid afternoon.  That was a quick cure to reverting back to flats.  So I’m not sure if I find it comical that I own quite a bit of shoes here or that it’s a silent tugging that I miss wearing stilettos.  I need to wean myself slowly out of my flat season, because I’ve gotten quite comfortable in it.

You’ve heard all the reasons why women like wearing heels?  The usual they make us look taller, they make us look sexy and don’t make us look fat.    I have to admit it does give my avatar some oomph and lift when I wear stilettos.

There is no contending they lift my spirits up.    Even if they give me a charley horse every once in a while.
