Footwear Expo: Booties

Have you heard that the Footwear Expo ends today?  If you’ve not been yet, perhaps these booties will tempt you.

First, I must say, booties are generally terribly unflattering to most of our RL figures.  The solid structure, ending abruptly where foot meets leg, destroys the leg line and makes you look short.  That said, I adore them.  They have a certain je-ne-sais-quois that just screams chic.  And of course in SL we can just make our legs a bit longer to compensate.

Lounging around

I was pleased when the talented designer and photographer Elysium Eilde of Elymode dropped her Lounging Set on me.  I was over the moon once I tried it on — how adorable are these things?  The quality is superb — these lounging pieces scream softness, from the overall cottony texture to the gentle wrinkles, placed just so.  The attention to detail is really remarkable.  In particular, I absolutely love the slouchy cut of these pieces.  There are no straight hemlines or waistbands; the fabric’s riding up this side, or drooping over that hip, just as it would if we were lazing around on a Sunday afternoon.  The cut of each piece — the jacket, the tank, the pants, the panties — is designed to interact with the rest of the set just beautifully.

Now, there are a total of 12 colors; here I’m showing gold, green, and light gray.  The light gray is my fave — it has that perfect heather texture of my fave RL lounging set.  They’re meant to be mixed and matched, and the cuffs on the sweater and pants are color-changeable to every color in the set.  (The cuffs on the clothing texture are well-finished, in case you want to skip the prim attachments.  The attention to detail here is really remarkable.)  They’re also versatile pieces to have in your wardrobe: I’ve dressed them up a bit below.
