Fly High with these Aviator Boots by Gos


As I'm typing this, I realize this is my third boot post in a row. Maybe it's the cooler weather in real life, but really, I think it's just that the boots being released are just amazing. Today Gospel Voom of Gos released the absolutely stunning sculpted Amelia Aviator boots. (A version of these boots called Yeager was also released, so guys, don't feel left out!) Gos has really outdone himself with these boots. The textures and details are so realistic, especially the worn leather. There are five colors - Black, Camel, Chocolate, Tan, and Worn - each used at least once in my pictures because they are all just gorgeous. The metal detailing is colored to coordinate each individual leather and there is a tight and loose option for wearing.


Another option included are socks. You can choose to show the socks in one of sixteen colors or hide the socks to completely customize your look. Aviators... Engineer boots... whatever you want to call them, you want these boots and you want to fatpack them.

Visit GOS to demo the Aviator Boots and pick up a fatpack of your own.

Nardcotix Iceli Spiked Stilettos

I've been wearing Nardcotix's Iceli Spiked Stilettos for the last couple of weeks and I have to say, they are my new favorite shoes of the moment. Nardcotix creates wonderful shoes and when they had a small sale I couldn't resist purchasing a couple of pairs to add to my shoe collection. If you haven't taken the time to visit Nardcotix I suggest you do, the shoes are wonderful and can't be passed up.

What I fell in love with most about these stilettos are the metal studs that surround the shoe as well as the bow highlighting the front. To me these shoes have the perfect amount of edgy style to them which made it only natural to wear when I began looking for a shoe to accessorize the Metallic Corset Dress from Nylon Outfitters.  

The Iceli spiked Stiletto is available as full spike version (not shown) as a separate purchase. The full spike version is slightly different because the studs are all over the shoe and are black rather than metalic. Both versions of the shoe are available in ten color options.

Meet Charlotte

On Your Toes - Charlotte by Haberdashery

As the weather gets cooler for many of us in the real world, SL seasons seem to change as well. Lately the most amazing boots have been created by some of SL's most well-known creators. What's more exciting though, is when a brand new store emerges. On Friday, a new store called Haberdashery opened and the Charlotte Riding Boots were part of its inaugural release.

On Your Toes - Charlotte by Haberdashery

Available in six colors - Black, Chestnut, Grey, Natural, Mahogany, and Walnut - these belted boots are a great start for the brand. The Charlotte Riding Boots are sculpted and include a plain boot as well as a socked version. My favorite is the Mahogany leather... It's just so rich looking. The one thing I'd like to see is the shoe part of the boot to be a little taller and a little less flat. The colors of these boots are rich and gorgeous - a great way to round out Haberdashery's casual collection. I can't wait to watch this brand grow!

Nina by Insolence


Nina is the newly released mesh, knee-high boot from Insolence. These boots are just gorgeous and look like buttery leather with a classic silhouette and stacked heel. They are mesh and come in three sizes - small, medium, and large. The medium sized boots fit me perfectly. Mesh has really improved the look of boots in SL. They move with the avatar legs in poses and are one fluid piece.


Nina is available in six colors - black, brown, cream, pink, purple, and white. These boots are perfect for wearing with jeans, skirts, and just about anything else you can think of. I've gone more casual with a sweater and jeans from Mon Tissu, accessorized with the amazing Chaos ensemble from MOOD.

Visit Insolence to demo Nina for yourself and pick up a pair, or the whole fatpack.

Viva la Vintage

A long time ago, when I first discovered Second Life, my real life twin sister and I came up with the notion of opening our very own Retro themed burlesque club, a classy joint that would be as much about friends as it was about great music, PIN UPS was soon born. At that time there were a few retro designers in SL; Antonia Marat of artilleri, Nefaria Abel of Ivalde, and new up and comer, Betty Doyle of Ingenue, were among the best. We realized very early on, that combining our love of retro fashion with our night club was a winning choice, and it wasn't long before the idea mushroomed into a labour of love named Retrology.

My retro roots run deep, and my love of the vintage designers, new and old, in SL has never diminished. With the opening of Vintage Fair, CHIC Management's daring new venture, it gives me great pleasure to see that despite the fact that Retrology is long gone, Vintage and our love of it, is still very much alive!

What I was hungering for, some new vintage inspired heels, Esther in 4 beautiful shades, were delivered to me this afternoon from the hands of the talented Nardya Rousselot of Nardcotix. She manage to stop me in my tracks when she also delivered this gorgeous dress and chapeau too! An outfit that was just too easy to put together with a little help from Caroline's Jewelry, Curio and oOo Studios poses, all new releases that can be found at Vintage Fair 2011!

I  urge you to embrace retro in SL, and pay the fair a visit or two over the next few weeks, there are so many lovely creations to explore, not just women's fashion, but also men's clothing and hair, home decor and novelties. So no matter if your inner avatar is a silver screen starlet, pin up girl, or rockabilly baby, there is something for everyone at the incredible Vintage Fair. Viva la Vintage!

Fall into the Glitter


Earlier this week, Siddean Munro of SLink released the absolutely gorgeous Glitter Peeptoe pumps. There really seems to be a vintage trend going on right now in the SL fashion community and these pumps are the perfect finishing touch. They are sparkly and feminine and just oh so cute. These shoes are mesh which means you need to be in a viewer that supports mesh in order to view them properly. They are available in eleven colors as well as a fatpack. The individual colors include two bow color options - matching and black - but the fatpack allows for complete customization by allowing you to mix and match all eleven colors. HUDs are included for resize/skin matching/nail color, nail tinting, size tweaking and the fatpack includes a HUD for bow and shoe texture changing.


I love these shoes so much. Before you try to match your skin tone to these shoes, you definitely will want to check out Siddean's tutorial video on how to quickly and easily get a perfect match. The video was easy to follow along with and I was able to get a really good match on my skin. Obviously you can't expect the shading and highlighting of the skin and foot to be identical, but using the blender layers that are included with the shoes really helps with this. The tinting was the quick part for me thanks to the video, but getting the correct sizing took me awhile. As you can see, a good fit is attainable with time and patience - and these shoes are totally worth that.

Visit SLink for a demo of the Glitter Peeptoes and pick up a pair, or fatpack, for yourself.

I went "Kookie" for These Shoes!

I want to apologize for my little break from blogging lately.  Things in real life had caught up with me, but I am planning on spending a little more time back in Second Life again!  Yay ;)  

My main inspiration for this outfit and why I purchased these lovely shoes I am because I fell in love with the new dress from /artilleri/ and needed some fabulous footwear to show it off properly!  These Kookie pumps saved the day!  I love everything about them, they are retro enough to pull off this look, but modern enough to wear with updated looks as well.  I have always been very impressed with the brand.  Check it out!  Hope you like it as much as I do!

A Little Bit of Magic

I am slowly embracing Mesh, it took me a while, I am typically cautious and wary of viewer updates and often wait till the kinks are worked out before I buy in to the hype. Here I am, a believer, and although I don't think Mesh is anywhere near it's full potential in SL fashion, there are glimmers of greatness and some very beautiful applications of the technology. Lucky for me, Nardya Rousselot of Nardcotix has released her first pair of Mesh shoes, these beyond amazing NX Zoe Platforms, they posses a sophistication and timeless oxford style that cannot be ignored. They are pure magic.

Even more magical, these shoes have been released as part of a fundraising effort, as part of O Glam's Birthday celebration, these exclusive shoes (in Monochrome color) are donating 50% of the proceeds towards the United Nations World Food Program, in aid of Crisis in the Horn of Africa. These shoes are exclusively available at Nardcotix's O Glam location. You will also find a variety of other great footwear at 50% Off in this location, and what could be better than that?

I let the shoes inspire the rest of my look, all I need is a bowler hat and some taps and I am ready for a Fosse dance number, too bad I can't dance. Though hidden in a gorgeous mass of LeLutka Hair, the Paper Couture Tulle Wrapped Earrings added an element of sparkle that I loved for this look. All in all, a little bit of magic goes a long way!

Please visit Nardcotix at O Glam for these great shoes for a great cause!

Shoes: Nardcotix (NX), Zoe Platform - Monochrome.

Kalnins is Back!

Kalnins Footwear
gives us Kvinto wedge booties, a slightly futuristic pair, with individual colorable parts and a unique profile that have me mentally preparing myself for what will soon be dozens of fabulous boot releases, like I see every Fall. I wasn't exactly sure what style would suit these best, until I checked out Collabor88 and these amazing separates from The Sea Hole were just spot on.

The hair is a bit of the recent awesomeness from Truth, this style is called Lilia, I love the new darker roots variations and effortless tresses. I added a pair of half gloves, tinted to match, and for a little something extra I went for the unexpected look of oversized Marta pearls from Donna Flora.

Visit Kalnins Footwear in their New Location for a closer look!

Still Heeling

 On the heels (pun intended) of Modavia Fashion Week, Donna Flora impressed with her gorgeous jewelry, fashion outfits and gowns, this week Nardcotix presented these fantastic Shana Pumps in a Color Fusion series, which logically made for perfect pairing! I love to celebrate the beautiful things, and Squinternet Larnia of Donna Flora, not to mention the consistently stylish Nardya Rousselot of NX-Nardcotix, certainly give me reason to share!
 As Fall Fashion begins to flood the SL Fashion Feeds, my love of coats was ignited again by this Helena Peach Jacket and chunky turtle necked sweater/skirt combination. An amazing all in one outfit that includes detailed broach on the oversized jacket lapel and  holey tights that up the modern feel of these classic pieces. I added a hot studded satchel by A-Bomb, along with some more  Donna Flora Accessories, the great  new 'Blue' Onyx earrings and a sassy cocktail ring. That sweet skin is a sneak peak of the soon to be released PXL by Hart Larsson, I am sure you will be seeing more of it soon.
The shoes offer sophisticated textures and color combinations, (check them out in-store to see the glorious cerise, aqua and orange... and more) but also offer stylish neutrals that suited the Donna Flora Helena outfit perfectly. Leather, Wool Felt and tinted metal toe caps make a great team when stacked upon that delicious hot pink sole that is becoming a Nardcotix signature.

Look for the Shana Pumps Color Fusion at NX - Nardcotix!

MIEL- Puddle Boots

Softness and Warmth

Last week during Fifty Linden Friday I found a treat that I had to share with all of you, Miel's Puddle Boot. These boots gave me a case of the,"Look at my Shoes" because they are really well done. Actually it's an understatement to say they are well done, they are fantastic in their design. Both the texture and sculpts are breathtaking and have excellent quality and detail. 

Three aspects of the Puddle Boot can be customized, The Body, Trim and Sole. There are a total of eight colors choices and if my math is correct it makes 24 color combination available for this boot. I apologize for not showing all of them to you but I'm sure you can understand it's just an abundant amount to share. The Puddle Boot is available in main color versions, Naturals (shown above) and Brights. My favorite part of the Puddle Boot is the ridges along the sole of the shoe and buckle strapped across the boot. I also enjoy the shape of the boot as it becomes wider towards your calf.

Even though the Fifty Linden Friday deal has passed The Puddle Boot is one that should be looked at and considered for your shopping pleasure. Miel offers not only shoes, but accessories, and clothing for women. Each item crafted at Miel is exceptional and worth every linden spent.

Argyle Anonymous

Sorry it has been a while since I have made a post!  
Today's look was inspired by these adorable little flats I purchased from Argyle Anonymous.  I thought they were so simple, yet vibrant...I hope I was able to do them justice!  They have so many color change options, it would take me a year to show all the different choices!  These cute little flats are also very reasonably priced, just like all the items at AA...I recommend taking a look  :)

Footwear Favorites 1- The Pump

Footwear Favorites 1 - Pumps

I love new shoes just as much as the next SL fashionista, but sometimes I find myself clinging to older releases to which, for some reason or other, I have become attached. So consider this a challenge of sorts. Basically once every week or two, I'll post my favorite in a certain category with the hopes that the lovely ladies here at On Your Toes will post theirs. I'd love to see others do this as well, so if you want to participate, please leave a comment with your post! It could be a great way to find new and lesser known stores as well as see the diversity SL has to offer.

This week's "category" is the Pump. So let's see your favorite close-toed, heeled shoes that no woman should be without.

One of my favorites are the Eve Flower Pumps from G*Field. Reasonably priced and scripted to color change and hide the flowers on each shoe, they're a great value for a plain pump that can be embellished a bit for other occasions. I've paired them with this simple Coquette dress from Icing for a flirty look along with some new ruby jewelry from Paper Couture.

I can't wait to see your favorites!

SLink Astrid


Siddean Munro of SLink has really been treating us with her mesh creations. The latest is the Astrid Boot, a gorgeous ankle boot featuring a high stiletto heel and criss-crossed straps. Astrid is available in 16 beautiful colors/textures, but I recommend springing for the fatpack because it is scripted to allow for mixing and matching all 16 colors. This makes for a ton of combinations that will go with virtually anything!


Astrid includes a HUD that allows for resize and color change on the fatpack. These boots are just gorgeous, versatile and a great addition to your SL wardrobe. As mesh, the Astrid Boots require Viewer 3 or another viewer that supports mesh.

Oh hmmm

*Sneaks in* Oh, hi! Did you think I forgot that I blog here too? I didn't, promise! I would see all the lovely blogs from the beautiful women who blog here and think, "get on the ballllll!!" and then I would go eat candy or something. Anyway, I am here now in perfect time to blog Gos' new release!
The brand new Storm Sandals are gorgeous! They are a cut out platform that demand attention. Seriously, could you ignore a woman who walked into the room wearing these? Let me answer that... NO! The Storm Sandal is sexy, dramatic and so so well made. The foot tinting hud was incredibly easy to use and I was able to unpack and tint within about 10 minutes.
There is no end to the talent of Gos Voom and his eye for detail. Beautiful, beautiful work and guess what else? TONS of options! You can buy the shoe in one color or you can fat pack. I cannot imagine anyone NOT fatpacking and let me tell you why....fatpack boasts that there are123 billion possible combinations, meaning it could take you 4,000 years to try them all! I told Gos that maybe I could switch very quickly between them and he said that estimate was based on switch time of 1 second. Oh. Okay. Maybe not.

Party Pumps, From Shiny Things

Bronze Party

I was having a shoe crisis the other day, it seemed that no matter how hard I searched I couldn't find the perfect shoe for my outfit. My shoe requirements were simple. Must be a heel, Must be in the golden family and it must be unique, a basic pump simply would not work.

Thankfully, Shiny Things provided the perfect solution to my little fashion mishap by giving me just what I was looking for, with the "Party Pump". What captivated me about this shoe is the posh decorative ruffle along the front. These Stylish beauties are available in twelve muted colors which are perfect for fall. Shiny Things is also more bang for your linden dollars because they provide an alternative single color option with each purchase of the "Party Pumps".

Shiny Things is a well established shoe brand in SL and has a wide variety of shoes types. Heels, Flats, Boots and Sandals can all be found here for Men and Women. Not to mention the accessories such as Bags, Jewelry, and Belts. Shiny Things quality, presentation and price are at a perfect balance making this a shoe store that must be shopped often.

Go Bare with Maitreya!

Maitreya Bare Feet @ On Your Toes

It's not always about having fierce shoes... sometimes a girl just wants to have pretty feet. The avatar foot has to be one of the ugliest body parts. Even with a great skin, the foot is still awful. Enter in the prim foot. There have been several prior to Maitreya's new bare feet, but I have to say these are my favorite.

Maitreya Bare Feet @ On Your Toes

Like all Maitreya Gold shoes, a HUD is included for skin and nail matching along with an up to date notecard with values for a number of skins. Also included are anklets for each ankle and scripted toe-rings. The Maitreya Bare Feet are available in tip toe and flat foot versionsand make me want to wander the grid barefoot all the time.

Lya Lya

I am really very pushy, I like to push talented creators to do what they do best, and that includes making me new shoes to wear. Lyanis Sin of Lya had been playing hookie for quite some time when I caught her online and begged her to make something new, she finally agreed and not too long after she delivered to me the most adorable flats, called Elika, which are really something special.

What I love about the Elika Flats is the proportion, Lyanis manages to deliver a pretty flat that doesn't make me look like a giant with munchkin feet, while utilizing the viewer 2 alpha layer, the flats are a decent length and width that will work on 'taller' avys as well as child and shorter ones. The color palate is muted and fresh, with a color change bow that can create a subtle effect or a more eye catching embellishment depending on your taste.

Visit the Lya Store to see the complete color assortment!

Shoes: Lya, Elika Flats, Multiple Colors Shown (bow is color change).

Stiletto Summer

It has been a while since I slipped into a pair of Moody's, but Stiletto Moody has made the most of a sizzling hot Summer, and released a new line of ridiculously sexy shoes. The Grace Range includes multiple styles, all with the traditional super high stiletto silhouette and sexy well arched foot style. If you are a fan of the brand you will surely love these updates and the hot colors and python textures, metal accessory options and more.The Stiletto Moody shoes still utilize the invisi-prim, pre-viewer 2 construction that feature a two part shoe, a lower portion and an ankle piece. I made a point of talking to Stiletto to inquire about when we might see a viewer 2 friendly update thus allowing the wearing of just a single attachment shoe, I was pleased to hear that there are plans to move in that direction and that SM customers can expect complimentary updates as soon as they become available.

Please sashay over to Stiletto Moody to see more of this impressive line and the colors available in the new Summer selection. Enjoy!

Kitty Flats from The Kid Company

When Katey Coppola announced that she was going to start creating clothing I knew it was going to be fantastic because Katey has such a discerning eye when she creates her poses for Glitterati. Katey has now two stores dedicated to clothing, The Kid Company and Petticoat Lane. Katey teased us in Plurk and on her flickr stream by showing us pictures of her creations before their release. When I first saw these Kitty Flats I knew that I would have to take the opportunity to blog them.

Kitty Flats are from, "The Kid Company" and are perhaps the cutest shoe I have seen in a while in Second Life. Originally the Kitty Flats are tailored to children, but I think they are perfectly suited for everyone. Available in nine colors the simplistic design is made more complex with the addition of ears and eyes. What I find most lovable about the Kitty Flats is the inside of the pink ears which adds a subtle cuteness and matches all color versions of the Kitty Flat. Moderately priced at only 75L per pair these shoes are a total WIN.  I highly recommend these flats for anyone that enjoys a casual cute look.

Maitreya YaXkin


Today Maitreya had a huge shoe release, including the YaXkin sandal. If you're a Maitreya fan, it may look a little familiar to you as it is basically a flat version of Maitreya's IXkin heel from a year or so ago.


YaXkin is a great sandal and can be worn with pretty much anything - dresses, pants, skirts, shorts. I love that it is a flat, casual but pretty shoe. Sometimes heeled sandals seem a bit too much for summer shorts, so this is a great alternative. YaXkin is available in a ton of colors and comes with the usual Maitreya Shoe HUD for skintone matching and nail polish tinting.


Here I've paired YaXkin with a modified version of the belted tunic from So Many Styles. Great as a shirt, I modified the tunic to be a swimsuit cover-up. I've kept the accessories natural with the great Cue set from Miel.

Visit Maitreya to check out YaXkin as well as the other new shoe releases.
