Shoe Fair: Ingenue

I am so honored to be chosen as one of the official bloggers of this summer's Shoe Fair.  It's a massive event covering 4 sims and showcases some of the best designers in SL footwear.  It benefits the charity, Soles4Soles, which distributes shoes to people in need all over the world.  Some designers have selected at least one item where 100 % of the proceeds benefit the charity, while others are donating a percentage of overall sales.  The event is very laid out, with lots of space between stores and a nice juxtaposition of clothing and animation designers between the stores.  Look for the little hay bales.  There are also gacha's near each sim landing point with some great, inexpensive prizes.

The first designer I would like to show is Betty Doyle from Ingenue.  I've been very impressed with Betty's shoe designs.  She has been at shoe making for about a year, give or take, and she has been dead-on exceptional from the start.  She has 2 new releases available at the fair as well as an exclusive pair of shoes that benefit Souls4Souls.
First off is Martha, a sweet little flat with ankle strap.  It is available in 12 colors for 225L per pair.  I paired it with one of the Film Crew tees from  The Mummy shirt is one of three available at the Shoe Fair.  All versions are available at main store.
Shoes: Ingenue: Martha in Blush
Shirt: Film Crew tee - Mummy
Shorts: Fishy Strawberry: Billy Denim Shorts
Hair: Anna in Delighted Blonde
Ingenue's other new release is the Fleur shoe, which is also available in 12 colors for 275 a pair.  Fleur is a lovely, classic heel with a darling daisy detail.  The dress is from Haven Designs and is one of the gacha prizes available at the fair.  Delora Starbrook, owner of Haven Designs is also the architect for this year's fair, so high-five!

Ingenue's exclusive charity item in the Dianthus shoe in Bloom.  It is an amazing flat topped with a gorgeous sculpted flower.  I own this shoe in several colors because it is so chic.  I paired it with Cupcakes new Loopy Dress in Red.  The only thing that could have made it more perfect would be if I could have modded the color of the dresses flower to the same color as that on the shoe.
