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.

Standing Tall in SLink

I know you've missed seeing my pretty little toes for a few days, so I am back in the Shaz Platform from SLink, a nice high thong wedge. It comes in great textile options and colors, a few of which are shown here. Cute embellishments like the sunny floral details and even a tribute to Kermit, a fun little frog that clings to the strap, and fabric or woven soles, are great optionals.
I adore the updated SLink HUD and the nail polish options included, you will find that getting a great match is very important, and although the join to the avatar leg is very nicely designed, depending on the leg highlight on the skin you wear, you will likely see a subtle shift in tone. I found the slight difference was not enough to worry about, and certainly from normal viewing distance, barely noticeable. I love the look of these shoes!
The stuff;

Shoes: SLink, Shaz Platform (White Denim & Others).

Skin: PXL, Gaia SunKissed (NE MEB FR C2).
Hair: LeLutka, Shoop (Harvard).

Fergalicious Footwear

What is bright, patent and python, all at the same time? The new Fergie Python shoes from Mentine, that's what. The Fergie Python by Valentine Biddle, come in a rainbow of glossy bright patent leathers, with mix and match multi-tonal python straps, nice nail polish shades and more. A eye catching chunky heeled sandal with two or three python strap design, the straps come lined with a secondary softly colored shade that peeks out enough to be seen on closer inspection.

This casual and fun sandal will add a pop of color to low key outfits, or compliment brighter summer styles with a bit of flair. I am wearing the new boyfriend shirt, and a cute denim mini from Maitreya. The hair, a must have from this year's Hair Fair, LeLutka's Nicole with colorful scarves braided into it, and the delicate Amanti Jewelry from MOOD, complete the look.

Visit Mentine to see all the available colors.

Shoes: Mentine, Fergie Python, Blue Patent (and other colors.)

Casual Corner

I have discovered new shops at the new Everwilde Sim that my friends Bowie and Valen have created.  One new favorite shop of mine is called Argyle Anonymous: I simply couldn't resist buying up everything I could get my greedy paws on!  I had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Swan Ling and I can tell you all of the items are very reasonably priced for the quality of the items.  I found these shoes, and fell in love with them, they are color change with several options...pretty much your one-stop-shop for a pair of flats.

Maitreya Allegre

Maitreya Allegre

Just a few weeks ago, Onyx LeShelle of Maitreya dressed our feet for casual summer looks with the amazing flip flops that really raised the bar for flip flops and sandals in SL. Today she's done it again but this time she's treating our feet to a gorgeous pair of strappy, peep-toed pumps - Allegre. Like other Maitreya Gold shoes, Allegre is available in a variety of colors and includes the Maitreya Gold HUD for changing skin tone and nail color. Allegre has the additional option of changing the strap and trim color, allowing you to customize the look of your shoe to suit your favorite summer outfits. Allegre is a versatile heel... not too short, not too tall... and will go from day to evening looks seamlessly.

Maitreya Allegre

Onyx has been a busy bee and in addition to releasing Allegra, Maitreya has also released a summer collection. The Boyfriend Shirt is an over-sized, belted oxford shirt that is available in a variety of colors. Extremely versatile, it can be worn alone as a dress, with pants/shorts or even as a bikini cover up.

Visit Maitreya to check out Allegre and the new summer collection.

The Mother of All Wedges

Most of Second Life is knee deep in star spangled bikinis and butt crack baring denim, but I felt the distinct need to class up the joint with something girly and frothy and elegant, just for a little while. Shoe Fair 2011 may seem like a distant memory, but there are still treasures left over from the big event, now safely displayed in their main stores. One of these finds is the extensive line of Maxine footwear from Baiastice.
Sissy Pessoa gave us platforms, sandals and super high heels, and my personal favorites, the Maxine Wedges, all with a nice looking prim foot and user hud. The unique looking Mother of Pearl ones are my definite favorites, with an unexpected texture that combines the understated glitz of silver and pearl like lustre. It was easy to complete my look with a pretty black dress, also from Baiastice, some of the incredible accessories from MOOD by Jori Watler, and one of the fantastic new hairs from exile.

Now it's back to our regularly scheduled programming of tan summer skin and skimpy bikinis, just be sure to enjoy being a girl once in a while.

The stuff;

Shoes: Baiastice, Maxine Wedge, Mother-of-Pearl

Cosmetic Tattoos: [PXL] GAIA TAN Pale Lips
Hair: Exile, Nomi Roots-Wedge

Dress: Baiastice, Ephidryades Dress -black
Accessories: MOOD Poipu Paua Bangles & MOOD Vengeance Glam Earring - Silver
