Baby Got a New Pair of Shoes

Abraxxa Anatine of EarthStones brings a jewelers eye for detail to her shoe making – and every pair of her shoes are truly jewelry for your feet. Last night she released 10 news shoes and kindly sent me a couple pair of truly exquisite ones. The shoes are called Lalika and each pair lets you select between 3 metals and 3 stones to expand your options. The pair shown above are raspberry and I selected the Sugilite stone option. With these shoes I am wearing a lovely dress from KA Designs called Cove.

This pair is her Fruit Punch shade. There are five pairs of shoes with different colored straps and 5 pairs with single color straps and she is selling them individually or in two fatpacks. The fatpacks are 30% off which gives you almost 2 pair in discount. With these shoes, I am wearing the newest dress from Mimikri – the Sina in stripes.

With this dress, I am wearing the Cherished parure from Illusions with Cherry Amber stones.  I have to note that the skirt has that white alpha ghost when I put it on. However, I learned a little trick that works sometimes. I opened the texture menu and went to  vertical offset at the bottom and gave it the tiniest possible nudge – just enough to shove that edge out of sight and back up to the top of the prim where it is buried in my waist.  It took all of 15 seconds and changed this from unwearable to delightful. I have other clothes from this designer  and this is the first time I have seen this mistake and think it must have just slipped through. Still, it’s a useful trick to have in your closet because we have all put on something we love and seen that edge.

Now this dress from Mimikri just might cause a cuteness overload. It reminds me of saltwater taffy, boardwalks and sand between my toes. With it I am wearing the lovely Pompadour hair from Shop Seu (tinted) and some old jewelry from EarthStones called Grateful – and you can just guess why.

This is the Uma skin from Rockberry and it’s exquisitely done. Look how lush the lashes are, even discounting the prim lashes and eye shadow has just the right sheen. The hair is from Truth and a great one for photos.

The skin is from Curio, the April 2 set and the Iris makeup. Here you can see the Grateful Jewelry from EarthStones in all its deadhead glory. Generally speaking, I would think of this set as more suited for jeans and a t-shirt, but the colors and the dimension of the beads are so reminiscent of the dress and its stripes that it seemed an ideal choice.
