#293 Hopscotch for 21Shoe

l am happy to see one of my favourite designers , Chandni of *~*HopScotch*~*, taking part in 21Shoe again this month.  Two pairs of shoes will be available at the  *~*HopScotch*~* shop, tomorrow only, December 21st - never again will they be offered in these texture combinations.  So you get not only two exclusive items, but also two for the price of one.

#293 Hopscotch on ice for 21Shoe

First we have Vevina which are made for SLink flat feet and which are in my opinion just about the cutest flatties on the grid.  These are great with jeans or capris, or if like me you love vintage style, these are absolutely perfect with 50's style circular skirts.

And next we have "Ice Ice Baby" which are unrigged, so they can be resized, repositioned etc so you don't have to wear SLinks with them.  However, if you want to wear them with your SLink medium feet, you will also need to wear the Ankle Lock which is available for free at the SLink store.   I love skating in sl (and irl but never get chance these days sadly) but have usually worn one of those awful free pairs - now I won't have to, yay!

#292 Sax Shepherd for 21Shoe

 I was thrilled to see that Sax Shepherd is participating again in this month's 21Shoe event, and is offering a pack of two gorgeous pairs of Jeweled Stilettos for just L$399.  This offer is only available on 21 December at Sax's mainstore, and includes an exclusive pair of my favourite ever shoes for SLink high feet, Mata Hari.

The shoe above is a sneak peek at Sax's soon to be released Aphrodite range.  This special Holiday Edition comes with a hud allowing many texture change options allowing you to match them to all your holiday fashions.  There are red, blue and green soles with gold, platinum and black titanium jewelry options. There are also jewels to choose from including several photo realistic diamonds, onyx, sapphires, rubies, and emeralds.  I have shown you a few of the possible combinations, and there is another in the close-up in the collage below. After the 21Shoe event Holiday Aphrodite will only be sold during the holidays at the !! SSD (Sax Shepherd Designs) mainstore at its full price of L$599.

The shoe above is Mata Hari Oyster Satin and is pearlescent oyster satin highlighted with gold jewelry pieces and mother of pearl - this shoe is exclusive to 21Shoe and will never again be sold in this colour after the event.  The shoe in the bottom right in this collage is a close up of another possible colour combination of the Aphrodite Holiday Edition.

If you have never tried Sax's shoes before, I encourage you not to let this chance pass you by - he is an artist in real life and it shows - his shoes are absolutely exquisite, and I don't use that word lightly.  I had never found any shoes for the SLink high feet that didn't make the foot look deformed and extremely uncomfortable, until I discovered Sax's shoes, and I have been a committed fan ever since. Thankfully there are now many designers making wonderful shoes for high SLinks, but I will always have a soft spot for Sax's beautiful creations.




My pedicure in these photos is from Hello Dave's Pure Christmas set, and the pic above shows you all the festive choices in this set.

#291 Catch a falling snow flake

#291 Catch a falling snowflake

Tomm is away on business for a few days so instead of doing all the things she should be doing, Zsa decided to put on her wellies (or gum boots if you are posh) and play in the snow, doing her very best to catch a snowflake, but not finding it very easy.

#291 Catch a falling snowflake

While she is otherwise occupied, let me tell you what she is wearing.  Her cozy jacket comes in a pack of 3 different textures from Irries Dollhouse for the Flawless Gingerbread Block Party & Hunt Event which runs until January 2.  Her dress is one of many lovely colour choices from Centreville.  It has short sleeves and would be great for a night out dancing, but Zsa wanted to wear it to play in the snow, and who am I to argue, I'm just the typist that does all the work for her while she frolics in the snow like a fool - she never thanks me either!

#291 Catch a falling snowflake

Her snowflake poses come from Eternal Dream who are sponsoring the Better Not Pout Gacha Hunt which runs until 31 December.  These poses and others can be found in the gacha machine at their store.  

Ah, she got one, hopefully she will go back indoors now to check on the kittycats

#291 Catch a falling snowflake

Silly girl just put the snowflake in her pocket, "like the song" she said - I didn't like to tell her the song is actually about catching a falling star, not a snowflake.  She will find out when she finds she has a very soggy pocket and no snowflake - but at least she will have these photos to remind her of the day she caught one, even for a brief moment.

#290 Bring me Christmas

#290 Snow - will update with blog post url when published

As a snow lover, I had fun putting this snowy themed outfit together.  When I tried on the skirt and poncho from LivGlam I saw snowflakes before my eyes, so I added a few more using some winter themed jewellery items from Cae and gorgeously frosty nails from Hello Dave.

On a sad note, this will be my last post for LivGlam who yesterday announced that they are closing their doors on 27th December.  So you still have a few days to go and pick up those bargains you have your eye on, or the unbelievably generous walls of group gifts.  LivGlam have been around for as long as I can remember, and they will be sorely missed.  * Update * LivGlam is retiring as a brand, but in the New Year their designers will be back, refreshed and debut a new brand and a fresh new style for SL's fashionistas.

I really love the textures on these shoes by .:KC:which come with an extremely generous hud giving you the choice of 26 shoe textures, 26 toebox textures, 30 heel platform textures and finally 3 for the metal.  I will definitely be keeping an eye out on their future releases.  

As for my nails, I have decided that instead of trying to show a close-up of my nails, I will add a pic of the HUD, so you can see what lovely selections they give.

To end on a high note, I was so pleased to learn that .::WoW Skins::. were the winners of the 2014 AviChoice Award in the Favourite Female Skin Designer category.  I have long thought that Sawsan consistently turns out some of the prettiest skins available in sl, so it is great news that her hard work has been recognised.  I am wearing the group gift for November, which is still available in the store, along with a big box of previous gifts.  Congratulations Sawsan!
