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.
The owner of Bleh has set her entire inventory at give-away prices. I mean, like, literally. Zero L’s for the whole lot of it. I read something about her doing this out of guilt for not having made new stuff or something. Guilt for having a real life and putting the metaverse on the back burner?

Well Katie, a.k.a marcillia bumblefoot, you go right ahead and have your real life and don’t you worry about a thing. When you make something new, I’ll make Etoile go in world and purchase it on general principles.

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.

I love this dress. And it was only 45L at Jack Spoon, a little shop I’d never heard of before until browsing through the blogs the other day and spotted some gift leggings that I figured I might as well have. So off I popped, and there was this dress.

It’s paired here with stockings that I cobbled together using some random free fishnets with some random free modifiable sheer stockings that I ‘colorized’. I was hoping to find something more funky in Etoile’s inventory that wouldn’t be all matchy-matchy and at the same time not ridiculously distracting from the dress, but she has what she has, and that’s just the way it falls out sometimes.

On Etoile’s head is a bit of swag from Bizarre Hair promoting the Crazy Hair Hunt going on this month. If you stay calm, the bees will just go about their business and not care about you. Just don’t stray too far from one spot, or they won’t find their way home, and we have to help the honey bees all we can these days.

The only downside to this dress is that it’s not mesh, and unfortunate things happen to the backside when Etoile stands in certain positions. The right butt-hider alpha might help that, though.
