Everybody be doin’ these shoes.

The Back Story.

Or at least they were back 500,000 years two weeks ago when I did this shoot. At this point, I was still feeling the irritation of not getting so much as an encouraging nod from the judges of the Le.Look monthly popularity style contest. Phooey and shucks to SL in-crowds. I guess that phenom is why we have to wade through all the gawd awful, taloned, “whore couture” pony riders in the feeds.

So here’s my bad-assed self being all no-yu-din’t in the G. Field shoes that everybody is wearing lately. Unlike what I plunked down for that ridiculous contest, they cost me nothing. Absolutely, dah-link. Too bad for all you kidz who didn’t get over to Culture Shock.

The Back Story.

This was my entry in the April Le.Look styling contest. I didn’t even get an honorable nod. That’s totally bogus.

No doubt my outsider status ~ in combination with not plunking down quite enough L’s ~ keeps me out of the running, but that’s high school for you. In the meantime, I’m completely loving these DeLa boots and had been looking for an excuse to get this jewelry set for absolute ages. I probably won’t bother with that contest again, but it’s not a total loss. Given the potential pay-off, I’d say it’s worth one little flutter. My guess is that it probably helps to be buds with an insider, but if they found themselves inundated with quality entries, it would force them to be a bit more sporting about the whole thing.

The Back Story.

I was struggling mightily trying my darnedest to come up with something that would go with some pink mesh pants that just were not working. I wound up in greens and browns. Of course.

And I’m loving this grassy sim. It’s very Christina’s World. But it’s my world… back off, Christina.

The Back Story.

Over-the-knee boots are not a wardrobe staple for Etoile. But these things just seemed to come together.

And, oh, hey…. it’s my 100th post. The little congratulatory blurb that WordPress sent me included a Gloria Steinem quote: “I don’t like to write, but I like to have written.” Is this really writing?
