Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007

Boots and Feathers


Boots and Feathers 1

I’ll admit… a good pair of boots gets me going. And a good pair of FREE boots is even better! So when I found out that Belle Epoque was starting out their new main-store location with a gift of FREE boots (in three colors – brown, black, and grey)… I was in! The style is spot on for a country or boho look and they don’t require any special feet! Woo hoo! You’ll need to join the group to grab the gift, but that is FREE too! As a quick note, the boots are mesh and like many mesh items don’t resize. So depending upon your avatar’s shape and/or size, you may have to adjust your sliders to fit the boots.

ADDED NOTE: We first saw this fabulous pair of boots shown off by Juli HERE in our Shoe Day Showcase! I derped and missed it! Be sure to check out her post for some other amazing shoe deals you’ll want to get in on!

I decided to go “Boho” with the boots and popped onto the marketplace, where I found this oldie but goodie dress for 1L. This Boho Culture Preview Dress is from 2013 and though it has a tiny bit of logo print at the bottom left of the dress… the print blends in so nicely (as you can see in the picture above) that it’s hardly noticeable. The dress is wonderful and definitely worth 1L! I’d have paid far more!

I wanted to give you a close up of my boots (see the picture above). But it also gave me a chance to show off my rope and feathers accessory that I found! And I think the head piece and necklace — a mere 10L on the marketplace to get you both pieces — are a perfect complement to this look! This Head and Necklace Ropes by Sweet Lies comes in both scripted or unscripted (for resize purposes) and is perfectly textured. I LOVE the feathers! Well worth 10L and then some!

  1. The boots are really nice but you can’t adjust the size.

  2. Hi Krie! You’re right, like many mesh items these boots do not resize… so depending upon your avi’s shape and or size, you’ll have to adjust your sliders to fit the boots. However, I’m sure you’ll agree with me that when a gift is this fabulous, generous, and also absolutely FREE! you certainly can’t complain about it😀 I will, however, be sure to add a note to the post about them not being resizable. Thanks for the reminder that I forgot that part!🙂

  3. Thanks. I had not realized that it would be taken as a criticism. I appreciate all the nice gifts given to us in SL. Thanks for pointing this out.

  4. Hi Krie! I thought you were just letting me know I forgot to mention the important fact in my post❤ !!!
