This is one of those looks built around one item, and in this case that item is a pair of shoes. If you have seen just a few of my posts you probably understand that I’m not a super dressy kind of person, I clean up good, but sophisticated I’m not. I think it might actually be a put down around here. So, saying all that I will tell you that these shoes I became so enamored with are a pair of pumps which I never wear in rl and have maybe worn twice on SL if that. The shoes being pumps is one hurdle, but they also happened to only be available in fall colors. I am not a “warm colors” sort of person and never have been, hurdle two. I decided to take on this challenge anyway because 1) These pumps are more of a work of art that I had to have than just a shoe, and 2) I didn’t like pastels either until early this year and you may have noticed they’re on here quite a bit now.
So, do you want to see the shoes that led to me finally adding some fall colors to my wardrobe? By the way, I must say I’m pretty surprised and pleased with how this entire look came out.

These are the Rose Pumps in butter (color name is decided by the rose not the color of the pump) from HANDverk and only available at Collabor88. At only $88 a pair you can afford to buy them, even if you never wear them, just to rez them on a table or something as a showpiece because they really are beautifully designed. HANDverk also has the Eve Pumps, with a snake as the heel, at FaMESHed this month.
