Put me on a pedestal

Shoe Fair 2010 opens its doors tomorrow and you’ll find an array of fantastic new footwear from a huge range of designers. With everything on offer it is difficult to know where to begin, but I can guarantee you’ll get a kick from Gos’s new Platform Pumps.

This sleek stiletto features an elongated platform beneath the toe, leading back to a beautifully pinched heel that perfectly encloses the foot. Beautifully lit from every angle, the shoe straps across the front with a delicate metal buckle, although you can can wear these open by hiding the strap if you prefer. The pumps are a beautifully snug fit with scripted resize, are Viewer 2.0 ready and are colour change to all parts of the shoe, giving you massive customisation options in each and every gorgeous colour duo. With all the options available in each pair along with the exceptional quality, you’re getting a bargain for your L$295. Make sure you pick yours up when you visit the Shoe Fair, and don’t forget to have a look at all the new Docs texture updates while you’re there.

There’s a lof of newness from Gos for the Shoe Fair and I am sure I’ll be featuring more soon, but for the record, you should know about the current steal of the century: of one pair of female Docs, one pair of male Docs and the new ‘Old’ polish for only L$300, with all proceeds going directly to the Shoe Fair charity, Sole4Souls. This is a fantastic deal, and the usual retail value would be L$1175 for the same set – drag your menfolk along too and take advantage. Remember that each colour update for the Docs is only L$300 from the mainstore, although there are further deals at the Shoe Fair on the insanely entertaining new furry textures, on sale for just L$150 each.

Lingerie works so well with new shoes and I couldn’t resist this ensemble. The cropped corset top is from Ingenue, buttoned up the back and boned all around, the strapless design offering suitable promotion of your assets while keeping everything concealed. As the top doesn’t come with its own panties, I chose knickers from one of my favourite Insolence sets, featuring black and red lace panels to the front and back.

The girdle is from Maitreya, the near black colour showing off a little better than the darkest tone available. Complete with open belted top, the belt closes on the hips and sits snugly against the skin, thick straps leading down with clasps fastening to the custom designed stockings, sold with the garters in an array of tones to suit your outfits.

I found this necklace at Alchemy Immortalis; dark chains draped around the neck, interspersed with blood red gemstones. Two hands reach down beneath the clavicle, one open as if releasing the remainder of the trailing chain, accented with a further stone.

Opting for a glamorous hair do, I chose this new Truth release in the rich pecan dye. With the fringe pulled back from the eyes and twisted up behind the head in a swirling bun, the body of hair flowing in a loose mane that gathers behind the back, a section pulled in front of the right shoulder for a sexy finish.
