Was it a Merry Christmas?

I was able to slip a bag of new free goodies into [IHS] In Her Shoes.

Nooo.. Not just one pair of sneakers....or even 4 pair of sneakers, but 16 pair of free sneakers!!!!!!

When it comes to sneakers I prefer a distressed look but a few pair are a little cleaner looking:).

The entire set was designed for ladies but it you guys have some stretching skills - go for it!

So if you haven't stopped by this week, it's time you did!

All free at:

Where on Earth to Find Free Stuff?


Suuure…go to a freebie mall at any time and grab a box of gestures, box of clothes or any other random box of freebies you can imagine. You have no clue what’s in that box but dangit, it’s free! Well, once unpacked, you usually find oh, 500 items in the box (low made up number).

None of the clothes seem to be in handly little Folders that separate complete outfits (Ugg!). All the bits seem to have been made ages ago and you have a nightmare trying to figure out what articles of clothing were meant to be used to make an outfit.


Across the grid you have the “Under 30” crowd of free items. Usually an old creation of a designer. Available for avis who are under 30 days old. Good intentions, BUT - How many of you knew about this category of freeness at THAT age? Folks, the avis that get the most out of this are alts…admit it, you know it’s true.

I highly urge designers to change the 30 day standard!! Think about giving it 6 months to a year.


Group Gifts (the yummy free item). The cream of the crop in the free field! I use Ivalde as an example here (yay Nef!). Here is where designers find the people who truly appreciate what they create. Of course many..MANY of us join a group, grab the free item and run like hell. Honestly, I don’t care if people do that and in fact I do understand it.

25 groups???? My groups are always at capacity with groups I just HAVE to be in (building, business and such). I only have maybe 3 floater groups and dang, no room at all for the kinky stuff!


Then there are stores like mine. To be honest, I can’t think of other designers who build and give it all away. If you can think of any that give ALL items made to the community, let me know – I would love to keep a list here. I’m not talking resale old stuff either. Everything I build I know will be given away, but that doesn’t stop me from doing everything I can to make it my best work to date.


As for this weeks goodies at Vignette:

I thought I would try to do a little something for the guys by way of hair. I swear I tried on 5 male shapes trying to get this hair to fit as many avis as possible. As for the ladies, I was in the mood for something warm and cosy and thought this would be a nice addition to your winter wear. Oh, and the hat changes to 9 colors on touch!

So stop by and see if it fits. If you like it.....they are all free (all colors).

Merry Christmas!

Some Simple Free Flats for Everyone!

The holiday season is upon us, so could'nt think of a better time to give. Please remember, ALL shoes at In Her Shoes are free.

I just set out the Bow-Bow flats but wanted to add a little something special for my amazing group members.

So if you haven't joined the Vignette group, please do. You'll find these little Christmas Bow-Bow flats in the group notices.

I also wanted to thank the kind people who helped out with tips. The tips allow me to find better textures and sculpties which go into the making of all these gifts I set out.

Most of all, it helps me keep the Sim up and running, so Thank you. I couldn't do this without you.

YES!!! More Goodies for all!

So this week I spent time on the guys too. That means if he's STILL wearing some cruddy freebie that HE thinks is's time for a change that won't hurt his wallet! Bring him on by for all 9 pair...

Zoom in on these - the textures are amazing! These textures are the dark swarthy kind the men LOVE.

As for you ladies.....I set out what we all need, the basic pumps (in about 150 colors at a touch!). OMG!!!

So lady's, don't put your bridesmaid's out by making them pay for bridesmaid shoes....these are perfect at the perfect price and they will definitely wear them again!

As always ... both of these sets are FREE. So don't waste time, go now, before I release the notice to FashCon late next week (darn that one notice a week thingy).

Rich or poor, noob or experienced - Enjoy!

Bare Boobie Gifts Below!

ARG!! I had awesome naked shape photos here but my sister complained.
So if ya wanna fuss..her name is Es0 Torok.


If you're ready for a bit of a change in your SL, check these out.

6 shapes.
3 men, 3 women.
All Mod/Copy

Two of the six are petite (highschool to college aged).

Have you ever had a guy who just couldn't hottie himself up? We all know it's usually the hair that fails them.

So I approached the shape by putting on a decent hair first. Then just built the head to fit! So guys, read the style card.

The hairs you see on it are simple to find and you WON'T have to adjust them.

These shapes are free to young and old, rich and poor, so come enjoy.

Come see the shape photos in world, really.... I thought they were harmless.

A Gift to YOU

She said "give it away". After just a moment or two, I smiled and said "You're right" Our mother taught us to share.

So, here goes - All the shoes and hair at Vignette and In Her Shoes are now free for everyone. Future releases will also be free. The group (Vignette) will be one of the 25 allotted groups if you choose to join (to get notices and exclusive free gifts). I decided to go the easy route here to give me more building time in the long run.

I will never be the "best" hair maker or "best" shoe maker, but I DO make quality items and I never just throw things together. I have never made a profit in sl, but I do love the creative process.

One person warned me and said "but you're closing a door you can't open back up". She's right. I'm just fine with it. I figure not everyone can afford the newest releases, but they should still have easy access to quality items in central locations.

Damn shame all those really bad (and often very dated) free items in SL aren't just pulled out. As a noob, I acquired every freakin new bit of clothing I could get my hands on in the first 30 days. WOW, was THAT a mistake. My inventory became a huge mess and it seemed 90% of the free stuff was unusable. To this day my inventory still groans with bits of it.

Don't get me wrong, there are some incredible things out there but for the most part these treasures are spread so far out across the grid you may never find them.

My two newest releases are Warm Winter Boots and Toasties, please enjoy them. All the colors are found in the shop and I felt no fat packs or demos were necessary. Take the colors you like so your inventory can sleep at night.

Enjoy your gifts!

Arrg! It's a Girly Pirate

Great pirate get up or what??

I liked buying the bits separate - Vest, Pants, Hat and Sash. This way I could come up with just the colors I wanted. BTW - The hat fit perfectly on the hair I picked up over at Truth.

My two favorite things about this look were the hair and eyes. Those two small additions to the outfit made the whole look look pop!

So take the time to head over to Deviance to check out the gorgeous colors and give this outfit a try.

Outfit - Deviance-PirateMate
Hair - TRUTH, Ana - ivory
Skin - Curio, :GP: Petal [Dark] April-Pure 1
Eyes - Curio, Tragic Eyes - Green (Shine) Large

On a separate note:

In Her Shoes

Well - I make hair and..stuff at [V] Vignette
My RL sister makes sculpties at"LC Sculpts"
We share the same SIM - Vignette.

One day we decided we should at least try some sort of shop together.
In Her Shoes
has been born. You will find it strategically placed smack dab in the middle of the sim (high on a mountain).

As you look about the shop you'll notice two different styles. Es0 is a workaholic in sl - I on the other hand get easily distracted. Our displays and packaging won't always "match" BUT we both have a love of quality goods. So come check the place out!

Es0 wanted an MM Board and I think it was a great idea. So for this week - take a peek at whats on the board and touch it.

If you've never used them before, and the boards goal is 175 and 175 people touch the board that day, everyone who touched it wins the prize. That means no waiting on lucky chairs or silly camping - just touch. Of course, we would love for you to take a good look at our products, but in the mean time - touch the board... and if you think the prize is worth it - ask a friend to get her butt over and touch it too.

So yes, the Halloween Witchy Boots are FREE!! Come by and touch the MM board at:
In Her Shoes.

Something Old, Something New

I saw this stunning dress and I just had to have it. When I think of Ivalde, the first thing that comes to mind is always vintage. I admit it, Nef is amazingly talented regardless as to her styles. This might just be the first modern/contemporary outfit I've ever bought at her place and WOW, was it worth it!

Of course, wearing vintage hair was a snap for me!

Tragic Lolita

Summer Choice 2009 - If you haven't played it by now - do it! The winning prizes are incredible...well worth it all.

So i guess you can tell what i did with my second card


Outfit: (with socks and shoes!) - *Edelweiss* School Blazer
Hair - BP*Autumn loose braid/silver
Skin - *minajunk skin Cry*

Men -

Two months now since my breakup with Kairos and I'm trying to move on. I've actually flirted with a few, but I find the clever ones live in foreign countries and the timing bites.

I've tried a ball room or two with very..uncomfortable results..Eww! (thank goodness for mute). Old friends have been incredibly supportive but whining on their shoulders stopped some time back.

I think it's harder to meet that "great person" the second time around. Yesh..all those expectations. Two have even asked me to "change my look just for them" OMG , HELL NO!! Can't believe they asked. One wanted the "overblown" look of an older woman with bad plastic surgery. I swear - I went into sl shock on THAT one. He seemed so normal!

On a positive note, I am more optimistic lately and try not to take any of them seriously:)

Well, off to explore... all kinds of things:)

A Messy Day for a Working Girl

Sometimes you just have to take a risk ... go on hunts ... play in sl shopping games ... that's what I've done this time around. Summer Choice 2009 - honestly - you can't go wrong on this one! Shop at one of the listed stores and grab a card...go get it stamped at the 20 stores and at the end you get to select from a nice range of amazing freebies!

My first card was used to grab this freebie artist apron and paint brush. It lets me feel creative and sloppy and gives me a bit of atitude. The rest was thrown together with things already in my closet.

Hmmm...lets i need to use my second card for another nice freebie. *Goes to check the freebie shopping list again*

Sweet Stuff

Today I wanted something a bit gentler. I do enjoy a soft, sweet look.... about time to give it a compartment of it's own. You'll see me wear this type of thing on days I feel vulnerable. The dress is downright adorable - I was attracted to the patchwork look of it. With the soft colors and just the right length, it was a must have.

Wow, was I amazed - I had a set of perfect socks. I picked these up in a sock machine. Give the machine $10L and it would spit out one of 9 pairs (they are transferable in case you get duplicates). As for hair - woohoo a freebie! I do wish it was mod but heck, I'm grateful to get it and love it.

Check out this skin - innocent and oooh soooo soft looking. Small shop but you'll be glad you stopped by. The boots I picked up at M'z. I gave in and grabbed the fat pack :)

The Look:

Dress - *noju* tsugihagi dress (comes in 3 lengths - you must choose)
Skin - Ssal'z Gururu Milky White S002 (WOW - luv this one!)
Boots - M'z Ebl white (yup, bought the very affordable fat pack)
Socks - **sen*2**LayeringSocks_LightGray(BabyPink)
Hair - *noju* relax hair 001 -black - A freebie!!!!!!!!!

Toy, Retro AND Role Play all in One

So, why is it a toy? Take a look at this beautifully done cigarette tray. It has a very handy script in it which hands out goodies. All you have to do is toss in the full perm item you want it to pass out (I put in the hair I was wearing and a landmark to Vignette). Now every time a random person clicks my tray - they get the treat!! How cool is that??

What a great retro outfit and costume. I was thrilled with the stockings - nicely done with the seam heading up the cheek. Since the dress is so short, I think the stockings adds a bit of tease to the whole look. The little pill box hat can perch on pretty much any hair in your inventory with ease (whew! gotta love that!). Little things much a big difference.

As for the skin - time to pull out a sweet vintage pin up skin - I think it brings the whole look together.


Outfit - Reasonable Desires , Cigarette Girl (with tray, gloves and stockings)
Hair - [V] Vignette May Onyx - this one may still be found in the group delivery box. Please visit the store and join the group. It won't count against you 25 and who knows what could be sent your way:)
Skin - Curio, :GP: Sundust [Dark] Pin Up-Apple Pie 2
Location - Bogart's Jazz Club wow - I fit right in!!!

Here are a few interesting little sims to take a peek at:
*Rouge Forest*
Wretched Hollow

Grungeboardin A, Give it time to Rez and B, Follow instructions for a blast!
Land of Aryador - beautifully built roleplay sim - even the entry looks great (and we all know roleplays start with a platform in the sky where you find rules and tags ...and mall stuff)

Follow THIS link for some amazing machinima!!!

Well - off to explore....

1930's and a Little Teasing...

First the Teasing Adventure -
Select a night when you're alone in date chatty friends. Just you and maybe a glass of wine. ANYONE can do it without ever leaving their SL home.

1 - Look in your groups and select one. I selected the SL Things to Do group...and looked at all the members online.
2 - Select a person (hell yes - it was a man!) and im him randomly. Yes ladies and gents - they MUST be online.
3 - im them - yup just wiggle your fingers at them and watch their reaction. Their sloooow response (cuz they're scared they might have met you and sort of ..forgot:))
4 - tell them you're a stranger - no matter what - dont tp them or go to them..stay only in im from a distance.
5 - A safe word must be given to them. My safe word for the night was "shhhhh" if they said it I had to leave them alone.

I must admit my goal was to catch the sl man "off guard". Yeeeees, do some teasing. I swear, I contacted 3 men that night and had some of the most interesting conversations of my sl life. They seemed much more candid than the men you see at a concert or out while exploring.

As one of the men concentrated so hard on whatever he was building i randomly imed him with random comments "nonono...move it to the left" "do you HAVE to pick that color" until he laughed and yes, he never once used his safe word:)

Ok ladies - just try it - The men will amaze you at how they land on their feet:) remember - you are both in that group so you have SOMETHING in with it!

Now the 1930s!

Thank goodness Nef is back at Ivalde. You have no idea how much my wardrobe depends on this woman!

Take a peek at what she returned with.

This stunning 1930's suit seems so simple when you first notice it...look closer. From the beautiful buttons up the back to the little nips and tucks at the waist, it has to be one of the most tailored vintage dresses I've seen in a long time.

I wanted something vibrant to make it "pop" so I selected a bold red hair from TRUTH. Yup, I'm one of those hair designers who feels perfectly comfortable wearing other designers wares.

Of course the skin had to back up that hair:) so I selected a great lipstick with a softer grey eyeshadow over at Curio.

The heels were sweet and perfect - yay for color changing scripts!!!! This pair has oodles of bow colors to select from and a bit of silver was all I needed.

Dress - Ivalde, Laurende (1930's)
Shoes - Shiny Things, Tuli Pumps
Skin - Curio, :GP: Petal [Dark] June-Swan 2
Hair - >TRUTH< href="">REDSKULL*
Eyes - Curio, Rita Eyes - Grey (Large)

I don't wear a lot of jewelry - but this one had my name all over...I love it!

Well - off to explore and if I'm very good, I'll even build some today:)
