Show Me the Shoes

Have you ever started getting dress, and got to the point where you had the grand task of trying to find the perfect shoes? This is my dilemma on the daily. I stand on my pose stand, plucking through the items of my inventory, trying to find the right pair of shoes for a particular outfit. I attach, I detach… I attach, I detach, the endless cycle that usually ends with me wearing one of my “go-to” shoes. You know the pair, they usually go with everything, and it makes life easier to just suck it up and put them on… especially when you have impatient family members telling you to hurry up and finished getting dressed. Well the other day, I said, enough was enough, I needed to find more shoes! Because we all know, a lady can never have too many shoes. RIGHT?!
VG Moto boots
So my first stop on my hunt for shoes, was a trip to VG shoes. The last time I went there, I was not disappointed. So on my return trip, I was all to thrilled to see some new goodies.

VG Moto Boot 2
Item one is their VG Moto Unisex Olive boot, which does come with resize scripts for adjusting the size. When I first put them on, they were a little too big, so I went ahead and made them smaller. My favorite part about these shoes, are the studs! It is an excellent decorative touch!

VG Dolce
The second item up for grabs are these VG Dolce Nude shoes! I get excited just thinking about them! I love it when designers allow for texture changes through a hud. This means, you can remix the look of the shoe to match the outfit you are wearing. The overall shoe remains nude, but where you see the red, that can be changed to a few other patterns through the shoe hud. You can also change the spike and studs from silver to gold!
VG Dulce Shoes

Now the shoes aren’t free, you have to join the free VG shoes group in order to purchase each pair of shoes for $15L. All together this was $30L’s well spent!

Just Design Deviant Shoes 2
My last shoe find was from Just Designs, they currently have this beauty out as a group gift. The group is free to join, and these JD Deviant shoes are free for the taking. The detail, the fierceness, the whole design of the shoe just demands a closer look! I do have to give some credit to my mom, she’s the one that told me about this find! Hi^5!

Minty Inspiratons

Snapshot_002

I often receive IM’s from readers saying that I had inspired their outfits, and this totally goes both ways because there have been several times that I am inspired by YOU!  Like today, for example.  FabFree reader Daisy Bridger sent me an IM asking for some fashion advice, and it inspired my look for today!

Daisy (daisy.bridger): (Saved Mon Apr 08 03:12:48 2013)Ihope you dont mind but i have a small fashion question for you you have a great style so thought i would ask here goes what colour top would be best with mint green skinny jeans as im not sure thank you hugs (copy/pasted w/ permission)

I went digging through my ever growing and over flowing inventory trying to find a pair of mint green skinny jeans, and for some reason I didn’t have any! :O  No worries… I let my fingers do the walking and headed to the Marketplace where Madhouse hooked me up!  I found a pair of mesh Minty Mine Jeans priced at just 99L.

I personally love a crisp white with mint green and remembered that C’est La Vie had just placed out a lucky board prize with their newly released Pocket Tanks in Thermal White.  I headed down there and was lucky enough for letter L to come up after 20 minutes or so.  You will need to join the group, however it’s free.

Duh! is where you will find these White Canvas Slip-Ons.  You can purchase them for 25L or win them in the lucky chair if you are patient enough!  I grabbed my Twinkie Bag that I have been hanging onto since my trip to Beginner’s Luck (where I picked it up for free) and headed off for a nice stroll on this fine spring day 😉

Thanks for the inspiration Daisy!
