Oh Babii!

Adam n Eve's latest hit me right where it counts, a completely unique looking shoe that has the ability to finish off an outfit with flair. The Babii Pumps have an almost metallic shine baked into the textures. Impressive stitching and seaming details on an attractive black sole make these a hard pair to pass up.

As always they come in loads of fantastic shades, both light and dark, I am previewing the Azure (worn at top), Applecandy, Scarlett, Black and Candy Pink.

Visit Adam n Eve Shoes for the full selection!

Also wearing; Minnu Skin, Maitreya Hair, Dress by Simone, Belt by Fleur, Pearls by Encore, Purse from MM Luxe (Miam Miam), Hosiery by Battered Boudoir.

I love Kukula I fell in love with her fashion-esque doll like works of art over a year ago when I found her on myspace. Now you can own a piece of her work on something functional like a card carrier. Shop Kukula here...

Plainer and Perfect

Graci usually does our Shiny Things posts, but RL has taken up a bit more of her time the past couple weeks... I miss you Graci girl, hurry back! I am trying my best to bring you those shoe posts, though there seems to be a lot fewer shoes being released lately... people likely gearing up for shoe expo (more on that to come!).

These are the new Plainers by Fallingwater Cellardoor, similar in style to the genius Skyliners previously reviewed. A nice sleek slide with a chunky heel. A dozen fabulous shades available, check out this snapshot from the in-store vendor to get an idea. Demos are available, come in sizes 0 and 10 - you get both.

I was checking out different orientation centers and the following outfit is from the Walker Orientation ( ) sim. I just clicked on options until the outfit/skin/hair/shoes were offered to me, so no need to feel as though you have to speak Japanese to participate. This is the skin used in the two pictures above and the one immediately below. You'll also find a ton of avatars from a cartoon movie and a couple of avatar options if you go through the orientation building.

Art as Inspiration, part 3

Alphonse Mucha is probably the most recognized Czech Art Nouveau artist. He is best known for his advertisement posters. The women in these posters always dressed like pseudo-Grecian/Roman clothing whose flowing curves echoed that of their hair and the decorations around them. All those curving lines are part of the Art Nouveau style.

Here's a set from Polyvore that I made a while ago.

Movie Premiere: The Incredible Hulk

Ready for another installment of "Movie Premiere"? Here we go.

Most people know the story of the Incredible Hulk, so I won't bore you with that. Actually, there's one thing I'm confused about: Is it Bruce Banner or David Banner? They're father and son, but apparently both of them have been The Hulk at one time or another.

Anyway, in the movie with Edward Norton (LOOOOOOOVE him), The Hulk is
Bruce Banner. And in case you didn't figure that out, Liv Tyler's character says it about 35,000 times in the movie, just to make sure that hits home.

So, what do we think of when we think about The Hulk?

1. Strength
2. Green (duh)
3. Tearaway clothes??

Let's see what we can do with that.

For strength, we have the suede biker boots (they're only suede because you know I can't resist that material), an undershirt-inspired top, and a leather motorcycle jacket.

If you have seen the movie, you know that Bruce Banner is on the run -- a
lot. So, for storage I've added a black bag with sturdy straps, a baseball cap for blending into crowds (and it's for this reason that there isn't a lot of green in the outfit...just enough to let people know that they won't like you when you're hungry*) and a Casio watch for doing calculations on the fly.

For a touch of luxury while on the lam, there are Chanel studs from Bag, Borrow, Steal.
And maybe in the bag, we should add an extra shirt. You know how The Hulk is with those.

In closing, why do the Hulk's pants always stay on?!??

* You'll get it if you see the movie.

Out of Africa

There seems to have been a small dry spell in the shoe making world lately, perhaps all those content creators are busy preparing for the upcoming 2008 SL Footwear Expo, now less than a month away. In any case, I decided to go on a bit of a Safari and seek out some hot new shoes for the readers of 'On Your Toes'. My trusty (and rather sexy) guide Caelen Mata, escorted me to Africa to help bring you the Anita Ankle Strap High Heels from Kitties Lair.

Babette Ultsch delivers her usual high quality, sexy styling and multiple color options for Anita. I am nuts about the oversized buckle and retro flair of this shoe. Metal accents are available in gold or silver. The shoe comes with a bling on/off option, so if you must bling you can get that sorted out. As for me, I marched all over Africa in these and found that they weathered the heat and sand extremely well!

Caelen has offered to show me where the really wild animals are at, so I have to run... but please visit Kitties Lair and get some hot shoes soon!

Also wearing; PXL Skin, Shop Seu Hair, Kungler's Dress (and Necklace), Bangles by Armidi Gisaci. On Caelen; PXL Skin, Dernier Cri Hair, Men's Safari Outfit by Blaze, Maitreya Desert Boots, Accessories by M.R.M. FACTORY.

I wish I could go to this OYSTER MAG paty

Prim and Proper Gifts

The ringlet hair style comes in brunette and platinum. Tons of hats are in the folder you'll receive and I'd venture that a guy would look dashing in the musketeer hat. You'll also receive the fox stole, hat, & muff combination which is the only ensemble I modeled with one of the new demo hairs from Bewitched (Lemon Island 83/200/28). You can pick this hair up along with two of the latest styles for free next to any of the new hairs. And if you prefer the House of Heart textures don't forget to visit there also for the free wearable demos (Remember look for the hairs marked with the sparkling "New" signs and look for the small picture of all the new styles. The new release small picture will contain the demos). And the skin is from A Piece of Candy (Immintel (160, 180, 100), which you can find for $1 along with an all new black diamond hunt going on this week.

The dress modeled with the above gifts (and pictured below) is a lucky chair win available at Crimson Shadow (Crimson Shadow Rezzable (189, 182, 27) designed by Draconic Kiss. The unisex skin is also from Crimson Shadow and is $100, all the vampire & bloody skins are on sale until the 22nd. The hair is the Una new release from Bewitched and the shoes are from *TVT* blogged in the entry below this one. *TVT* has a free female updo hairstyle out too.

Bolyne Vintage Clothing Reproductions

Another store I stumbled across this week was Made for You (Ichoen (75, 52, 58) which offered some goodies for guys and girls! You'll find a unisex freebie box on the table as you enter and the dress is near the entry of a side space which has dresses. You'll also find two lucky chairs here!

Made for You

The updo is the *TVT* freebie hair and the short hairstyle is from Bewitched's clearance area which has a ton of $1 hairstyles like the one above.

The Pierces Part Deux!!!

Actually it's part 3 but I didn't make the first show now... Every week the crow gets bigger and more enthusiastic. In line there where a few pushy over zealous creepy fans and I was all "Geez kiddies this is The Pierces can we all get along???"Once inside the venue a certain new breeding stalker bloak threw a fit that there where seats saved for Alison's in laws.

Anyway whenever I go to see these 2 rock country chicks, I feel like I'm like the cool teenage girl (I'm 31) who snuck into the local girly gyspsie carnival for hot chicks and little instruments. Seriously every girl in the audience is a smoking hot fan or sibling....And its cool to be able to go hang out on Ludlow street in a venue packed with cool non-hipsters...The Pierce's tend to attract sexy southern local city gals!!!

Next Tuesday is the last sets kids/stalkers!!! Get your lipstick on and sexy sun dresses ready for the last hurrah!!!

Digital Dragon Steps It Up!

This is a post that's been due for a bit now. I have quietly been watching the feeds with keen interest to see the progression of shoe designs emanating from Digital Dragon Designs, by the prolific content creators Zoey Pinkdot and Ninja Petion. They have created quite the mega-mall of everything from poses and gifts, to tattoos and clothing... and tons more. When I caught sight of the Rianna Pump last night I felt it was time to get my hands on some pairs and do a review.

Zoey and Ninja were more than happy to oblige, and I scooped up these four pairs to share with you. All of the styles below come in ranges of 8 colors, some even have the option of more than one type of metal accent available. All these pairs are well constructed, and Digital Dragon offer loads of wedges, slides, platforms and pumps to suit many a taste. Well worth a look. (Clothing and Accessory notes are below each picture.)

Home Sweet Home

I was requested to write on setting up home on a 512m plot. In no way is this a comprehensive guide, but a starting point offering a few suggestions.

If you've been around a while you are probably ready to have a little virtual home. There are several places to find free starter homes and furniture. Your inventory > library > objects > household folder offers a few options - specifically the cabin and a few pieces of furniture. If you want to immediately set something up upon purchasing your land the cabin is provided to you. However if you've purchased a small piece of land building in close proximity to other homes can cause camera view problems. So, a simple solution is obtaining a skybox/skypod. This is simply a home that you place in the sky. Here are a couple of suggested places to obtain free skyhomes:

1) .:: KMH ::. Sannomiya Store (Sannomiya 38/140/40) offers a completely private skybox. This is a skybox that does not have doors to the outside, that is you'll probably need to landmark the inside of your box to enter or exit or place a teleporter to get in and out of the box. ($0 - 14 prims)

2) House Of Effulgent (Blarn Isle 170/53/28) offers several free original houses and furniture. All are suitable for starter homes. In particular you may find the Fawn Skyhome of particular interest. It is 31 prims and comes with furniture. ($1 - 31 prims)

House of Effulgent _ Starter Home Kit

A couple of newer furniture places that regularly run $1 deals on furniture pieces are:
1) Apocalips Japan Low Prim Furniture ( Zoq 92/87/23) which has several specials including the whicker/rattan chairs outside of the store in either male or female pose versions, resizable chairs, and free futons (futon $0 & chair $1 @ secondlife://Zoq/55/48/24). All pieces are prim conservative with the prim heaviest being the resizable chair weighting in at 6 prims.

2)If you'd like to splurge on prims you might try Dolci! (Muslin 142/178/94) who offers varying pieces of furniture for $1. This week she has two chairs ($1 each) out which are 15 prims a piece. (Dolci is a friend so I contacted her to find out if she knew what she'd be offering in the future and she was kind enough to send me a couple of her future (sofa) planned offerings which I'm showing in the pictures along with the current $1 items.)

Other items of interest:

You can find many quality items ( Powder Mill 92/130/44) at the Gnubie Store. Including houses, furniture, Cubey Terra's teleporter, and kits like the create a bar texture kit in Four Yip's booth.

Yadni's Junkyard offers (Leda (217, 20, 53) offers a a repository of freebies offered over the years. You'll find almost anything you can think of here.

NCI (New Citizens Incorporated please open search and search on places tab for " NCI ") has many locations and not only offers vendors that disperse free items, but also classes on building.

Here's the house I set up using the sources posted...
Outside of the .:: KMH ::. Skybox:


Interior shots:

Living _ 1

The house and furnishings come in at 74 prims well under the 117 prims alloted to a 512m plot.

Living _ 2
Living room items: Furniture from Dolci!: 21 prim couch, 2 - 15 prim chairs, rug is texture changing rug from the Gnubie Store by Forseti Svarog of the Electric Sheep Company 1 prim, bar was made from the create a bar textures also from the Gnubie Store by Four Yip 1 prim, pot was from inventory> library > objects > landscaping >flowers - potted (select edit linked parts and unlink flowers then you have just the pot that I used to add the tree to) 2 prims, Tree is the Dogwood Tree from inventory> library > objects > trees, plants, and grasses> dogwood tree 1 prim.


Futon is from Apoclapis Japan Low Prim Furniture (3 prims), again the rug is texture changing rug from the Gnubie Store by Forseti Svarog of the Electric Sheep Company (1 prim), and the chandelier from Four Yip can be obtained at the Gnubie Store also (2 prims).

There are a number of freebie homes and furniture items available. These are merely suggestions. Take time to look around and I hope you find something you like.

Designer Awareness: Tina Tarantino Says Nay to Counterfeits!!!

I'm proud to say I've never owned a fake Fendi bag. I never understood that whole lets go to Canal street and swindle a faux Gucci or so??? Yes I've bought cheap things off the block but I always thought why buy a fake little Louis Vuitton knock off when the generic real one isn't all that great, you know what I mean (not the new it bag of the season) but the same efing bag every rich girl and her mother has. My mother told me when I was a little girl going school shopping that I could either buy 10 new cheap things or less than that for pricier items of clothing. I'm sure you can guess I have a designer closet with few pieces (some HM and stuff here and there)...Anyway read on to listen to the valuable message the lovely Tarina Tarantion has to offer. Oh yeah and she has a new Barbie out!!!!

What does luxury cost?

I hope you have a moment to read this because it is something very important to all of us at TT. It is something that we take for granted here because it is what we live everyday. We work in a place that is bright and sparkly and create pretty things and try to have as much fun as we can while doing it. The importance of the statement below cannot be emphasized enough. I still think its important to care about the things we are spending money on, where they come from and who might have made it. I urge all of you to get educated about the issues connected to buying counterfeit goods and how it affects all of us. I also urge all of you to find out more about the shocking sweatshop practices associated with the luxury goods market. xo&***sparkles, Tarina


Everything we create is handmade at The Sparkle Factory in downtown Los Angeles, U.S.A. We feel that it is important to share with you what it is you are buying when you choose to purchase something from TARINA TARANTINO.

Here at the Sparkle Factory we hand craft all of our jewelry, handbags and accessory collections, utilizing the finest materials. In a world that is increasingly giving less value to the origin of a product, we feel it is important to make something that we can feel good about offering and you can feel good about buying. This shouldn't be, but is becoming a rare luxury in todays throw away fashion culture.

The costume jewelry and handbag industry are some of the worst offenders when it comes to sweatshops, unfair labor practices and counterfeiting. Buying counterfeit goods also contributes to human trafficking and global terrorism.

We are doing our small part to combat all of these things and so are you when you invest in something special made at the Sparkle Factory in downtown Los Angeles, U.S.A.

More Beauty

I haven't been able to get my 'blawg' on for a couple days, but I return today with the Amanda Boots by Beauty Avatar creator Spotorno Binder. The boots are just another facet of the Beauty Avatar line that has seemingly taken my wardrobe by storm lately, with all sorts of sexy jeans, tops and dresses.

Graci recently reviewed the Beauty Avatar Emma Wedges, and now it's my turn to showcase these slouch ankled stiletto boots. They have nicely wrinkled textures and an almost suede finish. The boots, shown here in Coffee, come in a nice array of colors - visit the store for full selection. I am wearing mine with the Topeka Outfit, also from Beauty Avatar - I really enjoy this look.

As with many longer stemmed boots I found I was faced with the choice of modifying the upper attachment, or shifting my shape slightly to suit the boots... neither of these things deter me if I really like the footwear, and I opted for the latter option.

You can find the Amanda Boots, the Emma Wedges, and so much more at Beauty Avatar.
Also wearing; PXL Skin, Argrace Hat/Hair, Accessories by UnTone, M.R.M. FACTORY, and Ume Mode.

Summer Daze

Drinking tea at Sympathy for the Kettle is my new all favorite pass time. Owner Jodi Holiday has created over 150 kinds of tea to serve inside her cozy tea house which is now my home away from home. I especially lover her honey infused lattes preferably the apricot or vanilla rooiabus flavor, I also fancy the iced rose chocolate chai tea. I swear by the healing remedies of tea. I've taken it as far as to buy some of her ingredients aka rose sugar,lavender honey,then come home and create my own magic potions.

I declare Tea is in fashion,and if you live in the east village it is local. Go visit!!!

The weekly update!!!

I found a great new place on 135 first ave that makes Japanese Crepes. The girl who works the counter does her own nails, they're wild.

I went to watch the lovely Alison and Catherine Pierce sing their lovely new tunes (I Shot My Lover in the Head,and Technology) at the Living Room this past Tuesday.

All you "Sex in the City" fashionista seekers can get the look at Patricia Field's now with the Carrie Belt!!!

Also while here pick up the Love Soul Catalog. Contained in the catalog are instructions on how to redeem a coupon included with the boxed catalog. When you go to the store, wear the coupon, and touch the box in the Love Soul store you'll receive a box containing 6 items (pose, dresses, swim wear, pants, and shirts)!

Honey Soul

The jewelry I'm wearing with the dress above & below is from Bliensen (Ravens Requiem (44, 27, 23) and is a sample of their primanship.

Heart Cupcake Hidden Dresses

I thought the free hair from Junewave(Nanba (194, 64, 27 ) would compliment these dresses nicely. I also decided to check out the discount basement while on the Popfuzz sim (PopFuzz 116/174/21) and found a number of older <3 size="3">Angel Sienkiewicz

You'll find 3 camping spots here for group members, don't fret there's an invite box near the camping chairs. So if you like the outfits (2 dresses 1- 10 min & 1- 60 min, 1 male outfit 30 min) join and then camp. If you're pressed for time you'll find two free outfits next to the camp chairs (1-m, 1-f) for free. In the south east corner of the store you can find 3 dresses ($1 ea), Tux (m - $1), baseball jacket (unisex $1), free retro bathing suit ($0 - f) and also two outfits for those avatars 30 days or younger (1-m,1-f). You may also spy a free bangle and choker. (Shown are a mixture of camping, free, and $1 items from Miroku).


Lastly, if you haven't checked out the new Japanese magazine S-LOVE vol,002 you'll defiantly want to head to LOVE LIFE AGANCY (ALC 150/47/29) and pick it up. Wear the magazine, thumb through it, and press the "present" button whenever it appears (this is a new feature not present in vol,001). Sometimes you'll receive a landmark to the store, but other times you'll receive a gift (including free male skin from NexR & undies for the guys & the cute shoes from La Petite Fleur that I wore in all the photos.) While I'm mentioning NexR I'm wearing one of their $7 skins in all the pictures and NexR is adjoining the Love Life Agancy so if you like the skin pick it up.


And all the poses (with the exception of the pose included in the Tuli outfit) used came from Imperial Elegance (Glenn 159/219/28) which is having a sale - $15 per pose that will be retired. Sale is until June 19th and then those poses will no longer be available in world ...
