StyleCard: Donna Flora, Head to Toe

I am a huge fan of Donna Flora, the clothes are incredibly unique and well drawn. Recently Donna Flora creator Squinternet Larnia collaborated with Erpla Prieto of Periquita Shoes to create the Bella Donna footwear collection, a beautiful range of shoes with Jewelry accents.

The Latina Outfit from Donna Flora comes complete with footwear and a rosette adorned chignon hair piece to be worn with hairbase skins, making this a complete outfit worth investing in. Once again a simple pump gets dressed up with those signature jewelry touches and a rich golden sole and heel. The dress is elegant and sexy at the same time, the daring back features a beautiful black lace insert. If you are a fan of Donna Flora, or if you would like to take a closer look at some of her great clothing and accessories, be sure to visit her main store soon!

The Not So Mean Streets

Weekends are for comfy shoes, or they should be. The lady behind League, Nena Janus, made my weekend a whole lot comfier by releasing two styles of lace ups with a whole bunch of personality.

You can also work the left and right shoes separately for more personality. The shoes are designed to be unisex styles, and the High Tops feature a single attach version to be worn with prim pant cuffs.

Also featured in this post are the new Orange Bottom pants by Cynful, Luck Inc.'s latest the Petite Set, prim jacket and vest by COCO, new ::69:: hair, gloves by Redgrave, and the latest Battle Royale skins from Curio.

Sparkle and Shine

Stiletto Moody treated fans of the BARE Katherine Shoe to more dazzling textures this week, releasing both a series of 3 sparkling Diamante finishes; Gold, Silver & Black, and 8 shiny Python finishes; Albino, Black, Midnight, Gold, Natural, Nude, Red & Silver. The same stunningly high heels with the most elegant sculpted foot possible, the Katherine has the scandalous feel of a spiked platform and the delicate seductiveness of the whisper thin lacing around the foot and ankle, a perfect crossover style for the fashion forward and the fetish crowd alike.

For the curious, the fit on these is perfection, I am a medium, straight out of the box - but small and large sizes are included, and with each the option for further sizing. With the BAREfoot 2 Accessories upgrade you will have access to the charm anklets, toe rings, extra nail polish choices and foot tattoos, if you already own the upgrade for the BARE Katherine then it can also be applied to any additional Katherine Styles.

If you already have your Stiletto Moody Backup Bag, adapting the foot color to match your skin is a click away, but even if these were your first pair of Stiletto Moody BARE, skin tone matching is becoming far less mystifying for most of us with multiple options for obtaining your closest match. Stiletto Moody shoes are available at the Main Store.

The Stuff;

Look 1

Skin: Belleza Jesse Sunkiss, 10 HB.

Hair: JE*Republic, Garam, Smoky.

StyleCard: TESLA Vixen Desire

Six inches is something to celebrate, especially when they belong to the new Vixen Desire stilettos from Tesla. Creating a shoe with this kinda height requires some special attention, and Tesla found a way to go higher than the typical SL foot allows, by adding a fancy schmancy script to the shoes. As long as you put your shoes on in an area that allows scripts to run, the raised foot effect will remain engaged no matter where you go. These shoes are available in eleven deliciously shiny patent colors, or fatpack these babies to maximize that sexy, sexy height! Tesla also threw in a great crossed leg sit pose so you can show off those fantastic legs.

Grab hold of your desire, and visit Tesla for these sexy shoes.

The Stuff; Belleza Jesse Skin, Maitreya Hair, Fishy Strawberry Sweater Dress, Battered Boudoir Hosiery, U&R Dogs Necklace, Love Soul Prim Nails.

The Lolipolita Boots from Periquita Shoes don't just have a fun name, they also have a lot of personality. A sleek rubberlike finish and optional accent bow on the toe are unique, but the color change HUD that allows you to retexture everything from the sole, heel, trim, main 2-tone body and even that teeny bow, make these a nice choice if you are looking for a versatile and cute boot update for your Fall wardrobe.

You can find these great boots at Periquita.

SkyHigh Strap-ups from Stiletto Moody

It's been a while since I tried any semi-artistic photography for the blog, so I felt it was high time... or 'skyhigh' time... to have a bit of fun. As a previous owner of the Stiletto Moody SkyHigh Boots, I was intrigued when word reached me that a new release, or at least a new accessory release, for this great boot was available. The brand new Strap-ups upgrade adds even more wow factor to these already incredibly tall boots, wrapping the entire foot and leg with leather straps in complimentary and contrasting shades.

The Strap-ups feature is incorporated into the existing boot drop-down menu, once rezzing the upgrade package you simply wear your SkyHigh Boots and initiate the accessory, very simple. You do need to own the boots, or purchase the boots and the upgrade at the same time. The boots and straps do come in an assortment of 6 shades, the straps come in 2 slightly different variations, straps with trim and without, you get all 12. You can still choose not to wear the straps even after you incorporate the upgrade. Metal change options; Gold, Silver and Graphite still apply to the overall boot. To see the full color range of the boots and the straps I suggest you visit the Stiletto Moody store.

The mini-dresses called 'Hotter than Britney' worn in the post were found at Style by Simone (Stern). They seemed like the perfect match for these undeniably sexy boots. The dress is available in the Midnight or the Red versions shown here, and can be found at Style Starts Here.

Other Stuff; Exile Hair, Redgrave Leona Skin, Paper Couture Spike Earrings. (click on images to expand.)

StyleCard: Kalnins Promenade

Yee Haw! I was handed the most adorable short western boots today, the Promenade Boots, the latest from Maris Kanto of Kalnins. Released today, the Promenade boots are one stop shopping for cute fall boots with western flair, one of the 'it' looks for fall. The Promenade have the perfect drop down menu for color change, this include 11 leather shades and 2 metal options - really ideal - and easy to use. They use 2 attach points, one invisi prim and one the boot itself, these will work well with leggings and long prairie skirts, and not with pants that rely on prim cuffs.

Swing round to Kalnins and grab a Demo pair for a closer look!

The Stuff; Belleza Jesse Skin - Sunkiss 1 HB, Exile Single Lady Hair - Mink, Zaara Isis Shirt - Pitch, Zaara Ishaya Velour Slacks - Black, Zaara Indra Painted Bangles (Gold) & Sarayi Painted Hoops (Gold).
