Sometimes I build an outfit from the shoes up. For this look I was inspired by the Gabriela sandals by Duncan Giano currently at Shiny Shabby. The summery sandals come in Black, Blue, Coral, Fire (wearing), Nude, Turquoise, White, and Yellow.

Duncan has generously made them available to fit the flat or bare feet of the Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and TMP mesh bodies and includes a helpful notecard with fitting guidelines. They’re beautifully textured and will see you right through all of Spring and Summer.

Hoy te pusiste mas linda por lo que veo

Algo casual, pero sexy, asi te deseo

Y esa fragancia que tu tienes yo ni lo creo

Qusiera fueras mi Julieta y yo tu Romeo

Para probar esos labios de miel

Y recorrer lentamente tu piel

Cause I’m addicted to you baby

Imposible resistirme a su fragancia

Cause I’m addicted to you baby

Trate de conquistarla pero no me alcanza

Cause I’m addicted to you baby

Solo tu, solo tu

Oh my gouda I love this hair and the new RESORT color HUD! This is Bunny by Little Bones and will be available at this month’s round of Uber which opens up very soon (tonight, maybe?). This sassy side-pony with cute cropped bangs comes with a texture-change bandana and four sizes to help you get the right fit on your head and over your boobies.

The new strappy Lavino Sandals by Hucci are an Anniversary Special and are so much fun to play with; twelve hot colors to choose from to change the the buckle, upper strap, toe strap, thin straps, and base. Choose your favorite single color or go all in for the Collection (at a stellar price!) to make that unique color combination.

Hucci has released at Collabor88 the Jinan Sandals, made to fit both Slink and Maitreya high feet. They’re perfect for this round’s theme of “Pretty in Punk” which was thought up by the gorgeous and always vibrant Vixxie! The shoes combine a pretty suede texture with studded ankle and toe straps, giving it a little bit of an edge.

Seven colors available that match the color collage for this month’s theme, but by grabbing the Collection, you have the option of changing the textures of different sections of the shoe and Eboni has the full pack out for an incredible price.

Don’t forget that Pose Fair 2015 is open! That’s where you’ll find this great chair prop by Vanity Poses.

I love when designers texture sexy shoes in sweet colors. There’s just something about that combination! These hot heels are the Norma Pumps by G&D exclusively for the upcoming 21Shoe event.

Snakeskin-like texture with a gradient pastel rainbow, these shoes along with another style will be available for one price on the 21st. If you haven’t already joined the 21Shoe inworld group, you’re going to want to before month’s end. A new exciting element has been added: group gifts! Right now it’s free to join, and the first gift has been sent, however there will be a small joining fee starting April 1st.

Check out www.21shoe.net for all the details.

One of my favorite styles, this gorgeous hair called Windsong by Little Bones is at Uber. It’s so delicate with the beaded and texture change headband. I’m wearing one of the lavender colors in the Hot Mess pack.

Words to describe how I felt when I heard a while back that N-core would be making shoes to fit Slink and other mesh-body feet?

Pretty. Damn. Ecstatic.

The quality of N-core shoes is and has always been exceptional. I had so many of their shoes! Slowly but surely I’ll amass a collection again.

I’ll start with these Lace heels for today’s 21Shoe. A pair each in white lace and black lace of the sultry platform slingbacks are priced two-for-one, only available at the N-core mainstore, and only for today (April 21st).

New MyADDICTION Iris Heels on Flickr.                                                                                                                              

It’s pretty appropriate that the shoe brand I’m showing you today is from MyADDICTION because, let’s face it, I love shoes.

These are the Iris heels in the fatpack which, honestly I know I say this a lot when it comes to shoes, but you should seriously consider picking it up so you can enjoy endless color-change options.

With the fatpack you can: change the texture of each part of the shoe to and from fourteen colors, add or remove the instep (or foot) straps, add or remove the spikes and change them from silver to gold.

MyADDICTION will also be participating in this month’s 21Shoe with two exclusive colors not available after the event. Stay tuned for those!

| De Madrid al cielo | featuring *YS&YS* for 21Shoe on Flickr.                                                                                                              

Just like a little black dress, every woman needs a pair of classic black sandals. *YS&YS* will be offering, as one of the two paris for 21Shoe, their Cabot Sabot sandals in black lace. They’re simply elegant!

As your second pair, however, we’re getting a little more festive. The Madrid Tapas in Red have a vibrant pattern in a covered platform peep-toe heel made to fit the Slink Mid or Medium height foot.

Only available for 21Shoe and only for 24-hours, grab both of these for a great 2-for-1 price on Feb 21st at the *YS&YS* mainstore. You can see all the participating designers at www.21shoe.net  and the group flickr. Join the inworld group to get your shopping list.

| Munchies | featuring Livalle Tokers for 21Shoe (today only!) on Flickr.

Head on over to the Livalle mainstore to pick up not one but two pairs of shoes, one set for guys and the other for girls, for today’s 21Shoe event.

I’m very into unisex shoes in SL, however, so I opted to showcase these awesome slip-ons called “Tokers”. What can I say? The herbal motif spoke to me (¬‿¬)

Each set of 2 pairs of shoes is priced two-for-one and the textures of these special offerings will not be made available again. You only have the rest of the day today to pick these up so don’t miss out!

Get more information on 21Shoe inworld via the official event group, find all participating designers at www.21shoe.net and follow the group flickr stream to see the shoes available this and each round.

| A Blush of Blue | on Flickr.                     

You all may remember how much I like pairing soft pink and a sky blue. I’m in luck yet again since for the upcoming 21Shoe, I don’t have to choose between the two colors.

Essenz joins the event with two pairs of darling shoes, the Florence heels. One pair in Baby Pink and another in Baby Blue, both for the price of one.

Don’t forget to join the inworld group for 21Shoe to get new group gifts! The group is free to join until April 1st when a small joining fee will be instituted. Definitely worth it for monthly gifts that will “pair” up nicely (see what I did there) with your new shoes.

New! Hucci Zunyi Pumps for Collabor88 February on Flickr.                                                                                                       

I heart heart-shaped anything so naturally February is one of my favorite months. I actually love Valentine’s Day whether I’m single or not because around my house and within my friends & family we celebrate it like it’s Christmas. We trade cute cards, give little gifts and, of course, chocolate and candy (the best part).

I can’t resist all the pretty pink items in SL, either. Not everything has to be pink for Valentine’s Day. Like the color and inspiration collage for this month’s round of Collabor88 theme of “My Love” with it’s richer, deeper hues and shades.

…but I wanted PINK lol.

Hucci is offering these insanely pretty heart heels this month at Collabor88. The shoes come in six colors: Blues, Midnight, Moonlight, Rose, Valentine, and WildPink. Each single color comes with a color-changing HUD for the sole and the heart. Switch the heart from light pink to hot pink, red or white or match it to your heel color.
