21Shoe: Sneak Peek for November 21

I have been completely crashtastic for the last couple of week so no fanceh photos today, but I think the news is more important than the photo in this case! 21Shoe is back in a big way! If you are unfamiliar with 21Shoe it's essentially a one day event, occurring on the 21st of each month, where a slew of shoe designers offer a 2 for 1 deal on shoes.  In the past these shoes were only been available on that particular day, but the rule has been expanded to where the shoe must be either new or exclusive.  Other than that there are really no limits, though you may find that many of the shoes are for Slink Mesh Feet or for one of the newer mesh bodies. However, that may not always be the case so be sure to check the specification for each shoe.  For a quick peak at tomorrow's shoes check out the 21Shoe Blog!  I am always excited on "21 day" and can't wait to indulge my shoe passion tomorrow!
Also, 21Shoe is what is termed a floating event in that there is not one specific location for the event and takes place at each participating designer's main store.  I am happy to show you the shoes that will be available from some of my favorite designers.  On top, are Suzette Heels from Ingenue.  For the price of one shoe you get both the lipstick and teal colors and these are made for Slink Medium Mesh Feet and Belleza's mesh body.  Below are from Bliensen + MaiTai, which is offering two different shoes for the price of one: Cerise Heels in Houndstooth for Slink Medium Mesh Feet and include both rigged and unrigged versions as well as Strapped Heels for Slink High Mesh Feet and also include both rigged and unrigged versions.

Winter is Coming...Already?

It has been snowing like the dickens in RL and I've been dressing up Eden in warming clothes even though it is always warm on my platform where I hide most of the time. I am a big fan of Coco and I grab just about any coat or suit that she makes as they are always perfect.  She recently released the Chester Coat and a new Sweater with Shirt underneath and I had to have at least one color of each. The sweater has the added feature of a version that fits under coats and not having to fight mesh clash makes me very happy.  I guess I can justify buying more purely on that basis.
So much of the "stuff" I am wearing with the outfit is currently available at various events.  Wasabi Pills has the adorable Karin hair at FaMESHed for November.  I love the short bangs; besides being fresh, they always make me think of a gamine like Audrey Hepburn or Winona Rider.  The gorgeous shoes I am wearing are from Nardcotix, which has recently reopened and making stunning shoes. The Delilah Stilettos are currently available at The Liaison Collaborative.  There are versions for Slink high feet and Belleza and The Mesh Project bodies. Regretfully the shot came out so "white" with the lighting I used that you can't really make out the stockings I am wearing from Cannibelle. The designer, sweet Annabelle Couturier, has made some finely textured Micronet Tights for Cirque de Seraphim in both dark and light pastel tones.  Let me say this: I am a fussy shopper, I have a ton of things in my inventory and I have come to appreciate good designers.  Cannibelle is tops on my list for stockings and she makes appliers for just about any body, including toddlers.  The things on my nails are actually quite fantastic.  The Rawwr Claws are made by Plurabelle Lazslo of Bliensen + MaiTai for this month's round of We<3RP.  They are original mesh, available ready to wear for both slink casual and elegant hands as well as in sizes large enough as well as modifiable for the standard avatar hand, including for men.  They are delicious and a great statement piece!

I feel a Nip in the Air

In RL you can feel much more than a nip as we are receiving a massive Arctic blast and the only reasonable place to be is bundled up in your home.  On days like this my gratitude simply overflows for what I have.  Tableau Vivant and Glam Affair have collaborated on a hair/skin look that is sold together!  Miko Chii has been made for the CosplaySL event, which runs November 15 - 30.  How it works is that there are 11 different combinations to chose from, each corresponding to one of Tableau Vivant's hair HUD options, and a Glam Affair skin is specially chosen and included to enhance the hair.  The hair HUD includes 30 color options and includes 3 sizes. The skin chosen is in the Arctic tone and includes several brow shapes and color options. Because the skin and hair is sold together, your option to mix and match is to purchase more than one combination.

The clothing and accessories I am wearing are currently available at The Liaison Collaborative. Valentina E is offering the cozy  Kristin knit dress that includes a matching scarf.  It is available in 4 color options.   The pomme de pin set from Cae includes a necklace and earrings.  This special set is fully customizable and you can change the texture of each separate element. I've also included some of the outdoor decor items available at the event: Bench and Pump from Atlier Visconti and Lighted Trees from Pixel Mode.

50 Shades of Eden and one of them is pissed :)





Angry because I have spent the last several days in SL attempting to get this shot and either my new graphics card is a fail or the cable provider is a lamo and not giving me a good connection. Either way, my son finally relented and let me use his laptop.  What a difference a good computer makes!
I would take the comp back but he might die. Cable doods are coming later this week and if that does not fix it it means no decent comp for me for the duration! Grr

The items I am showing in this scene are some fabulous items from events that are ending soon.  Run to FaMESHed and check out Trompe Loeil's Paxton Living Room Set.  The primary items include an overstuffed sofa and chairs and one of the coolest coffee tables I have seen in SL, not shown but looks like a large tree slice {ie. Sequoia).  Also available are the paintings and lighting shown above. Season's Story, which I think runs a few more days is as lovely as always and I fell hard for Eula's new Wilma hair.  I'm not a huge big hair fan and this hair is similar to my RL hair.  The delicious slip dress is from Ison's collection at Collabor88.  I love Harry Ison like a fat kid loves cake because he makes soime of the best understated, sophisticated clothes on the grid. I am obsessed with his work. Finally, Cannibelle is busy again after a summer slow down and has some adorable stocking sets at the Kawaii vs. Creepy Gacha Fair.  She has 4 styles out and I opted for one of the kawaii's for this post. I have become a huge fan of her stockings!

Like a Queen

Just a quick post to show off my FABULOUS new dress I found at this round of The Fantasy Collective. It's by Senzafine, and is called the "Caterina" gown. I have to admit, I haven't bought a big poofy formal type dress in ages cuz well, I never go anywhere to wear them, but when I saw this one, it was love at first sight. The texturing is exquisite, and it fits perfectly! It's available in 8 colors, and is very reasonably priced.

Since the dress has sort of a "regal" vibe to it, what better to top it off with than a crown! :D This one is also at The Fantasy Collective this round. It's called the "Isabel" crown, by Sweet Lies Designs. It's available in silver & gold, and both have a color change hud for the gems.

 I finished off my look with one of my favorite necklaces from Lazuri. Not only is it beautiful, but it's named after a character from my most favorite movie EVER! (not sure if that was on purpose, or a coincidence, but yeah) The Esme necklace! ^.^ If you've never been to Lazuri, you definitely need to check them out. They have one of the best selections of formal jewelry on the grid, and they offer awesome group gifts!
Until next time!
