Confession: I cannot cease staring at my shoes

I have a small shoe problem, which some will attest to. When i find a pair of shoes i adore, i will wear them for ... a very long time.

Currently, I am in behavior-modification training, as I have acquired TWO pairs of shoes that I rotate between.

Both are sufficiently distracting as to have had me bewitched by their good looks at inconvenient times (at meetings, while building something Very Important, when trying not to walk into walls or fall into a canal), and also look lovely with many a gown.

What are they, you ask? Why:

Zasa Rossini's Tally Boots (gorgeous in red, chocolate, and soft black leather - ok that's three pairs of shoes right there, I know, I know. shush.) The Chocolate Velvet are available at Petite Chou (


Cutea Benelli's steamy coggy goodness, aka Vapor Vanity Silver Luxury Heels - they SPIN!

available at The Grim Bros Main Store on Clematis ( http://

and viewable wherever my feet are.

Fatima's Antique Artistry Antiques

If you’ve been around the Victorian sims for awhile, you’ve no doubt heard of
Antique Artistry Antiques by Fatima Ur.

Spread across several sims, there’s a rich variety of homes, furnishings, landscaping to be had. Even if you don’t have the lindens nor the land yet, it’s an amazing place to wander around. You will be tempted -- and chances are, you will return when you have the means and the land.

Prices are reasonable and quality is good. Don’t forget to check out the freebie area when you are there.

The variety, the quality, the changing merchandise all are sure to impress.

Lavish Ladies & Dapper Gents Please join our newly created shopping group, the Proper Shopper! Inspired by Miss Eleanor Anderton's Shopping Alerts....this group would periodically release a wearable shopping HUD (thanks Viv!) that with one click would transport you to the featured deals, sales, freebies and favourite designers of quality garments, furniture, decorative home goods & garden delights.

The Proper Shopper Shopping Group is geared towards the Victorian, historic, & Steampunk sims....From the modest shirtwaist to the provocative plunging deep decolletage all of the fashions that we will gather and share will be tastefully Victorian or steamy Steampunk! We do have a rule: NO BLING! or modern clothes will be featured (unless it's lingerie or a costume!) And Gentlemen, we will not forget your desire to be dapper! We encourage you to join us and submit YOUR favourite sources for fine apparel and encourage newbies to join our group so that they can look their best when traveling through the Victorian realms!
