StyleCard: Kitties Lair Gina

I just love the footwear that Babette Ultsch creates, her style is a bit more tart-ish than most of the creators on the grid, but the quality is amazing and she always comes up with something fun for us shoe fans. Babette's latest release are the Kitties Lair Gina Heels, her very first foot and toes in a shoe creation. The sole is a platform of mirror like chrome, and the uppers are available in both patents and metallic snakeskin, the heel strap is accented with a silver heart shaped buckle. The fit on these was just perfect, and the skin tone was easily matched using a drop down menu that contains basic presets and custom control for perfect match. The shoe is equipped with 11 nail polish shades. Overall I have to say that I am a fan, these are fun and attractive and will work with a variety of styles.

Visit Kitties Lair for a closer look!

The Stuff;

Shoes - Kitties Lair - Gina Sandals - Gold

Skin - Curio - JUNE - Sundust FREX, Pure 4

Hair - lamb - Unbirthday Redux - Kit Kat

StyleCard: JCS... For The Boys

I have always tried to share a wide range of footwear on the blog, different styles, creators and collaborations, but what tends to be missing is shoes for the male avatar. They are out there, and some of them are really well made, but it's a bit hard to blog men's footwear when you are definitely not a male. Eponymous Trenchmouth of Jeepers Creepers Shoes (JCS) inquired if I would be able to review his latest releases, and I was happy to oblige, with the help of a very accommodating Dave Casanova... thank you, Dave!

These 2 new styles are great Casual shoes, the Miami Shoes and the Kix Shoes are a lace up style with a hint of an oxford feel and some athletic shoe inspired stripe detail. On the Miami the tan leather contrasts with the softly colored canvas that comes in soft 'Miami Vice' pastels; Peach, Blue, Cream and Sage.Golden grommets and white laces complete the style. The Kix Shoes feature richer tone-on-tone styling in shades of Green, Red, Black and Blue with color matched laces and soles.

Both of these styles can be found at JCS Shoes Main Store.
