Shoetopia 2017 is here!

Shoetopia is back, and it’s raining shoes! Shoetopia will open at 12 pm March 25th , and will end on April 15th. With over 50 designers participating, this will be an event that you don’t want to miss!

If you are s group member of Shoetopia’s sponsors (Blueberry, Breathe, CandyDoll, Empire, N-Core, and Reign), then you probably have already stopped by Shoetopia. Members of these groups were allowed to access Shoetopia 24 hours before the event opened.

There have been several videos floating around that shows what shoppers will find on Saturday. I watched videos from Alicia Chenaux, Kitty Otoole, and Strawberry Singh.  They all give you a pretty good idea of what the build looks like, and how the sections are set up for each store brand.

Last day of the Wash Indian Summer Cart Sale!

For those of you who are not familiar with the Cart Sale at The Wash sim, most of the items are only 10L . Can you believe that you can get nice shoes and dresses for 10L. Each cart does have 1 item for 50L, but that too is a steal for what you get. Just look at this dress from Ghee – only 10L!

Shoebox Event – September Round

Hey guys! A new shoe event has opened on the grid at 8 pm SLT on September 4th. The name of the event is called ShoeBox, and it is created by Rebeca Dembo (owner of CandyDoll), and co-owned by Skye Everidge. I am not sure if they both created the event together, for when I hear about the event, I only hear about Rebeca. However, if you look at the website and group, Skye is listed as a co-owner.

The event will start on the 4th of each month, and last until the 1st of the following month. This month we have 14 stores participating in the event.

I was surprised to see that a number of stores had shoes for only Maitreya feet – almost half the stores. It’s one thing if you have a certain style of shoe, and only a certain foot will do (e.g. Ingenue’s kitten heeled bootie). But if it’s a generic high or flat heel, there is no reason why a minimum of two sizes cannot be made. It just seems like in the rush to get items created by the deadline, shortcuts were taken by only rigging one size. I hope this will not be a trend for future rounds. People have written messages on Flickr expressing their pleasure or surprise regarding the items for this round. Go check out the photos and fave what you like, then come back here!

Shoebox September 2016 - second life
