Being able to participate in an event that included celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves who was consulting women all day in the front window as he was launching his new hair care line that I highly recommend to anyone looking to spice up their lock life.
A very special thanks to all the staff in store and at corporate who've helped make all this possible for me and dote on me when I get all flustered and of course my publicist and sales rep Mylan Bui and Jowita Kurowskie. I look forward to doing all this during the holidays with all of you.
Michael Palladino (director of client and studio services)it was an honor to recieve a compliment from you about all my pretty little creations.
Couture tea time is the cure for any kind of stress.
Shop these fine porcelain items at Franz Porcelain.
Buy this Butterfly tea pot here...
. And here is the rest of it.
All outfits, clothing, skin, and hair pictured were absolutely free and provided by the Retrology sim merchants:

Every shoe pictured was absolutely free and obtained from the Kumamoto Japan sim which is celebrating their one year mark also. Check out both sims, now!
Pictures were taken while visiting the Greenie's Back Yard!
And here is the rest of it.
Truly frightening. I mean, this is not a man who looks good in a dress (i.e., womanly)! The saddest thing about it is that his legs look just like a typical female model's, so if you put two and two together...
No disrespect to Cole Mohr, though. I'm pretty sure if I were a male model and I got picked to be in a MJ ad, I'd do it, regardless of what I had to wear.
Be sure to visit Maitreya and take a closer look.
I am wearing; Minnu Skin (discontinued), Boon Hair, League Outfit, Bracelets by M.R.M., Earrings by Aya V - Atelier AM.

SMG2. Yes, that is what I said. And here I go, falling for it hook, line, and sinker... I always fall the hardest for the sleek, sexy, tall ones.
Stiletto Moody gave me a sweet awakening today, details of her very soon to be released SMG2, Stiletto Moody Generation 2 line. She assures me that these shoes are so far advanced over her previous (already spectacular) releases, that they are worthy of the 'next generation' moniker. Stiletto is promising new features, exciting new styles, and as always big things to come!
This about to be released Pre-Fall Range for 2008 sidesteps the previously only footwear line to include the impossibly sexy launch of the Lucky Lingerie Line... are you with me still people? The 'On Your Toes' exclusive from Stiletto Moody herself certainly made me feel lucky, providing me with the first production set of lingerie a full week ahead of release. Now if only I could get 'Lucky', which shouldn't be hard with this in my inventory.
As with all previous releases Stiletto rewards her group members with early shopping privileges, scheduled for *Friday, August 1st. Group membership will likely be closed prior to the launch, so please join now if you want to be the first to see the new shoes.
So for now Dear Readers, I leave you with one heck of a tease... my name wouldn't be Anessa Stine if i didn't. More news to come. ;-P
I am wearing; [PXL] Crys Sun Kissed Skin, Cake hair, Stiletto Moody 'Lucky' Lingerie, Gloves by Fleur, Stiletto Moody Elegant Slingbacks in Black Twinkle (previously released). *note correction to sale start date.

Yes, and here it is...the 1st place winner of the Footwear Expo Flickr contest....Cherie Parker's Homage. I mean just look at the text...that is a shoe girl that would make Nessa proud! Congrats Cherie and thanks to all who participated in this years photo contest. It was a blast too look through the pool and see everyone's creativity!
Congrats to Phoenix Chapman, the Footwear Expo Volunteers & Vendors, Metro Models, Hathor Models, Photo Contest Participants (winning photo information will be posted when we have it), Rezzables, and YOU-The Readers of On Your Toes, the people who buy the shoes!
Authors Note: No need to feel blue just because the Footwear Expo has ended, I have heard the rumblings of a major new release coming our way once again from the Stiletto Moody camp, the latest buzz is about something called the SMG2 - new designs, new features... and don't you just know you need to keep your eyes right here if you want a first look! AS
Here are a few pictures from style.com's Style Hunter feature on prints (including my favorite, PAISLEY!):
I love how even the floor is patterned (and matches)!
I never thought I'd say this, but I loooooooooooooooooove this outfit by Hermes. Even though the color palette is mostly brown, it isn't boring at all. The print on the bag, the dress, the beautiful leather goods... *sigh*.
These are the black version and as you can see they have a nice chunky sole and a detailed texture that gives the impression that they would be super comfortable to wear.
Due to the assortment of colours available you could easily combine these with many outfits depending on what mood you are in. Its a great thing to see mens footwear getting some focus and the designs are improving as time goes on. The shoes also have a prim resizer script built in so they are easy to resize to match your avatar with a minimum of fuss.
Shoes in this blog from Adam n Eve
M105 Shoes featured in Black, Grey and Chocolate.
Clothes from Muism
Shirt and tie from Leather Blazer and Shirt Set
Pants and belt from Black Spring Set
So, I have to begin this blog by saying thankyou to my magnificent girlfriend Christieanna she gave me a giftcard to one of my favorite stores in SL, Muism (thankyou Nicholai for helping her choose) as a rezzday present. As a result, I had some shopping to do and saw there was some new items available!
So anyway I went around the entire store, grabbing a few items which I didn't already own and some of the new things that were out.
After Sending my NC off with my giftcard purchases, the amazingly talented Icemocolo Voom informed me he had new shoes he was releaseing today and kinda gave me a couple of pairs to sample as a gift (it is my rezzday afterall as it is Monday here already).
The shoes as you can see are sculpted sneakers that are very well detailed. They remind me of something I would wear in RL and they are quite impressive. As you all know I love to wear new shoes and these will go well with quite alot of the casual outfits I tend to wear from time to time.
As for the clothes, I got wayyyyy too much to actually depict here. So I went with clothes that would match the shoes the best, and pulled out my old biker pants I bought on release a while back, and they went well with the new shirt I bought.
So as you can see once again, Icemocolo has done an amazing job in creating some new items that look highly detailed and go well in combination with each other. I think that Christie's reaction to the new Leather Blazer and shirt look as "Thats Hot!!" says it all really.

So here is my last feature post for the expo, and my apologies to any vendors who had new releases or items they hoped I would get to. In any case let's discuss these sexy, shiny shoes from Hays Uriza which I found completely irresistible. The Cyndi are part fetish, part mainstream and all the way hot... the shape and glossy looking textures make me giddy! They come in a variety of rich jewelled tones, and might just be enough to get you to the store to see the rest of this amazing creators items.
Visit Hays Uriza at Footwear Expo, or at the mainstore here.
I am wearing; PXL Skin, Boon Hair, Honey Kitty Dress, Fleur Gloves, Preen Stockings, Violet Voltaire Crown.

There are more free or $1 items lying around. There are even several booth/stall areas that are entirely compromised of free or $1 items.
I took a lot of pictures of the boxes laying around.
You can find a variety of items at the Summer Festival: hair, jewelry, furniture, accessories, gestures, avatars, and clothes just to name a few.
There are things for guys and girls.
Everything pictured was either $0 or $1, but you'll find tons of other values in this small area.

I really don't splurge on any one thing. I love clothes in general, and I spend my money equally among everything... except shoes. I really need more of those!! I do have about 10-15 handbags though. Most of them were gifts, I swear!!
What is your signature scent?
Guerlain Mentafolia. Unfortunately, they don't make it anymore, so I rarely ever use it. It's a nice, clean minty scent... I have to find a replacement.
What was your biggest fashion mistake?
Hmm... wearing things that make me look fat. It happens occasionally, because I rarely try on clothes. I like my shopping trips to take as little time as possible, so I often buy what I think looks nice. I get it right about 90% of the time, but that other 10%... those clothes just stay in my closet until I find a flattering way to wear them.
What item(s) do you never travel without?
A good bra! Gotta hoist the girls up where they're supposed to be, yeah?
What was the last film you saw?
The Dark Knight. Honestly, I didn't like it as much as I thought I would...
What beauty products do you swear by?
Clinique High Impact Mascara, MAC eyeshadows, and L'Oreal blush. Aveeno Self-Foaming Pads are nice, but I think they are making me break out...
What is on your iPod?
A few soundtracks (Romeo + Juliet, Atonement, A Bronx Tale, 21), Dizzee Raaaaaaaascal!!, Girl Talk, Julie London, Lenine, Charles Aznavour, Steve Tyrell. I'm not even sure how those all fit together.
What was the last item of clothing you bought?
This suuuuuuper cute trapeze top from Target. I'm in love with it, for serious.
Where do you buy your lingerie?
The cheap but good stuff comes from aerie, but when I'm feeling slightly indulgent, I get Calvin Klein undies from Lord&Taylor's.
Which shop(s) couldn't you live without?
Uh, TARGET. I live for the Tarj. I can't live without Muji, but I'm forced to do so. I could make do with just those two stores. Oh wait... let's say Nine West for shoes.
I chose to show the outfit with:
Shoes from **Deviance** Sexy Costumes & Fantasy Costumes $0
The Ganguro Skin is from Loli Nori and can be found in the Bare Rose freebie section. $0
Hair from Utsuku City's Amipuu Shop. Join Utsuku City Members group and camp for 10 minutes to obtain hair from Amipuu Shop.
Poses by Izumiya and are all free.
Pictures were taken in Utsuku City.
And here is the rest of it.

I am wearing; PXL Skin, Boon Hair, Baiastice Bikini & Hat (held), Kraftika Earrings, Cashmere Bangles and Kalnin's Sunglasses.
I ran into my good friend and fellow blogger, Iustinian Tomsen, while visiting the Kari Mainstore... he was generous enough to join me in these photos, ty Iusti! Be sure and visit Kari for a closer looks at all the styles, some neat wearable and fun props too!
