Which Way To Shoegasm?

The question was asked yesterday, just before SHOETOPIA opened and I had to laugh and use it for my post. It was posed as a request for a landmark, but I couldn’t resist a bit of license.

Shoetopia IS a Shoegasm however, if you’re a shoe lover as I am. Cajsa has been doing an extensive job blogging all the lovelies and I have to admit, I’m pretty jealous of her presentation skills. She’s got the tools and the talent, and her bright sunny photos make me covet everything I see. (Just like Hannibal Lecter said) Continue reading

Booties @ Shoetopia

I love tulips better than any other spring flower; they are the embodiment of alert cheerfulness and tidy graceShoetopia is open now, so grab a taxi to Shoetopia. A fun thing to look for are these glorious booties from Baiastice that come with three options, Charm, Prestige, and Glamour for all 18 shades. If you get the fatback, there are six bonus special edition shoes, 3 in lace and 3 in patent leather.

Shoetopia – It’s What’s For Supper

It’s entirely possibly my friend and blog partner Cajsa has in fact blogged every single fucking shoe at Shoetopia. Her posts have been gorgeous and comprehensive and i’m baffled at the TIME that must’ve taken.

I didn’t really know how to compete, so I decided I’d just get my tits out.  I didn’t have any “cover up the tits poses” that would work with Hourglass. Maybe I’ll make a set I’m not sure. Clearly it’s a deficit in MY SLife.  Continue reading

 Carrie Bradshaw said, “The fact is, sometimes it’s really hard to walk in a single woman’s shoes. That’s why we need really special ones now and then to make the walk a little more fun.” I suppose I should credit Candice Bushnell, but the words are Carrie’s. If only Carrie could go to Shoetopia to find some really special ones.

I am featuring several of the boots that will be on sale when Shoetopia opens at noon SLT tomorrow.

Depending on the shoe, I am wearing Maitreya’s Lara or Slink Physique body and feet, both with AlaskMetro’s Chi skin from Skin Fair.

 

“The trouble with simple living is that, though it can be joyful, rich, and creative, it isn’t simple.”

Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she can conquer the worldThalia Heckroth™ has made minimalism and simplicity her design signature. But just as  Doris Janzen Longacre was correct when talking about simple living not being simple, minimalist design is just as deceptively complex. Embellishment is easy, structure is hard. Look at the structure on this gorgeously simple dress. Look at the bodice and the way the sleeves are inset. This is a deceptive form of simplicity that is the hallmark of good design. I decided to go for pink, out of the many color choices this dress comes in. I was tired. Pink wakes me up.
