StyleCard: UBU PornStar Lo-Tops

Continuing on my quest to free myself from sculpted feet and toes, and enjoy the more relaxed looks of Summer, I happily stumbled upon the most recent from Urban Bomb Unit's Coke Dreadlow. The PornStar Lo-Tops are a unisex style, so yay! for the boys, these things come packed with the easiest customization HUD for a shoe of it's type. Great styles that range from tattoo art to camo, and rainbows to pink argyle, a little bit of something for every Lo-Top lover.

More great denim and tank tops from Maitreya, and a great sculpted cardigan from COCO, round out relaxed daytime look. Great Hair twisted up and out of the way and a few simple accessories from Armidi are all I needed.

To capture some fun casual of your own, be sure to check out the UBU PornStar Lo-Tops at Urban Bomb Unit!

StyleCard: EarthStones Darya Wedge

Summer is a great time for no fuss, no muss casual looks. It was such a treat to be able to kick off my prim feet and slide my avatar tootsies into these amazingly detailed Darya Wedges from EarthStones. Abraxxa Anatine delivers more of her recognizable earthy delights, with the added benefit of two metal options, an assortment of specially selected semi-precious stone accents to match the rich colored leather. Once again a beautiful job done on the foot shape to create a more natural looking foot without the need for prim toes.

To complete my lazy day look, I threw on a pair of damaged jeans by EmJay which I shortened to capri length, an olive tank from Maitreya and the absolutely fantastic EarthStones Leather & Laced Belt. Other touches like the Samsara Hair from ::69:: (with custom tinted hat) and an UZURI Necklace make this an outfit I had to 'folder' so I can wear it again and again.

Check out these Darya Wedges at EarthStones.

The Stuff;

Shoes - Darya Wedges in Sienna, EarthStones

Jeans - Ripped Dark Jeans, EmJay

Top - RB Tank - Green, Maitreya

Skin - June Sundust Frex - Doe 1, Gala Phoenix

DCNY Sim Reopening Event Continues!

Just in case you missed one of the fun events of the weekend, the Xalapa Sim home to DCNY Clothing Co. among others, has Reopened and now features a fantastic New York City build! As extra incentive to pay a visit and see it all for yourself, the generous vendors of the sim have also left a few hearts around the sim full of special gifts for you!

Here are just a few examples of what can be found:

From DCNY Clothing Co.

From Dawn Designs

From SIMco.

& From PIN UP Dolls

Here is also a look at the new line of skins just released at DCNY. I really love the new Lorelei Skins, beautiful faces and make-ups on a really well made skin. Jog through Central Park and pick yourself up some DEMOS.

StyleCard: Kalnins Morning Dew

Another great shoe from Kalnins, Morning Dew, a great looking cork soled wedge with layered leather straps and metal details. As with the last release, the Kalnins shoe HUD is about the easiest thing to use yet, you can change separate parts of the shoe to match your outfits, and skin change has a very easy to work visual system.

The dress a new item from COCO, part of the Gion Collection Show that I was fortunate to attend on Saturday evening, could not be sexier with it's perfect prim top and derriere cleavage baring back. To complete this tropical evening look I opted for the beautiful new Leah hair from TRUTH, earrings from Creamshop, and bracelet by ICON.

The Stuff;

Shoes - Kalnins Footwear - Morning Dew

Skin - Gala Phoenix, JUNE Sundust (Frex)

Hair - TRUTH - Leah, Caramel

StyleCard: LeLutka St.Tropez & Teese

Another collection released over at LeLutka, in case you managed to escape the news. Teaser images have flooded the feeds for a few days now and with the release yesterday even more... but what I always look for, naturally, is the footwear. This time around 2 Styles, one each from Minnu Palen and Thora Charron.

The St. Tropez Shoes are certainly summer vacation friendly with perfectly painted toes and a sweet heel strap, great colors and combinations. A HUD system is delivered by touching your shoes and it includes skin presets and custom shade selection.

The Teese Shoes come in 2 different fabrications, some of the shoes have a black chunk soul , while others are more suited to strolling on the boardwalk with their pale wooden platforms. These have a funky fashionable feel, but a lovely smooth texture that is really appealing.

All told there are tons of color choices here and plenty of exciting mix and match with the garments of the new collection. Pretty short dresses, pantsuits and sexy little bikinis. An amazing collection to be sure, and I recommend you visit LeLutka for some shoe demos and to shop the latest releases. Be warned, it is very hard not to buy it all!

StyleCard: Kalnins Empress

The recently released Empress shoes from Kalnins are impressive. On the heels (pun intended) of the Coquette shoes, Maris Kanto has released the Empress, improving them in so many ways it is hard to believe that these are really only his second women's shoe released. Gone is the need to wear a size 11 foot as the basis for the shoes, but also the prim feet have arrived allowing for more versatility and sex appeal. The HUD that Maris created might just be the easiest one I have encountered to date, and there is a very simple system that allows you to individually re-color parts of the shoes; buckles, straps, sole, body, accent, and nail polish can all be selected from a palate to match anything you can imagine!

The Stuff;

Shoes - Kalnins Footwear - Empress

Skin - Gala Phoenix, JUNE Sundust (Frex)

Hair - Posh, Lolli Sexy Buns -Umber

Top - :bijou: *GG* Doll corsetcami [Yellow] - former freebie

Skirt - Sweetest Goodbye Day Dream - Black (pants & skirt from Dress Set)

Accessories - Fresh Baked Goods

What All the Fuss Is About...

So the 'Lag Gods' and luck have been on my side a little bit today, and I was able to make my way over to the Stiletto Moody 2 sim (no easy task!) to see all the excitement. Some of the other fortunate few able to get to the store complained of slow rez rates and were curious about all the shoes included in the release, so I played camera spy for a few minutes between crashes and managed to get away with these Polaroids.

Please note these are just unedited snaps taken with low settings and no special lighting, so my apologies to Stiletto Moody & Crew if they aren't the best representations. Enjoy the peek, and be a little patient, join the Stiletto Moody Group so that you can access the new releases, and wear your tag to take advantage of the discounts offered on previous releases.

Happy Shopping!

Now here is where the fun starts... if customizing is your thing, a very adorable Cyan Card Table emerged from my inventory and on it was perched a lovely card and envelope from Stiletto, a very special add-on for my sweet little Laurens was the Stiletto Moody Lauren - BAREfoot1 Upgrade set, it contained fun and funky foot tattoos and charm anklets, other upgrade sets include toe rings and bonus nail polish options, very cute!

So now that I have aroused your appetite for shoes, please be sure and join the Stiletto Moody Group right now! Later tonight a 40% off sale for members only will begin.
