Summer Chrysanthemums

There is a pair of shoes I have, a pair of black slingbacks that I absolutely adore. They fit perfectly (no gap in back), they are well proportioned (they don’t give me boat feet), and they are elegant (the best slingbacks are). They were simple and pure. Just what I wanted. I bought them a while ago at a shop called SKGShoes, and I returned again and again to the shop to search for new colors, only to be disappointed.

I went back again tonight, and I was happily surprised. Not only were my beautiful black slingbacks there, but there were 19 other colors! (You can imagine what I said while I gazed at the shelves of shoes.) Even better, they were revamped with a brilliant little hud which allowed for different sole colors, different heels and bow on or off. Eeeee!

I had to build an outfit with these wonderful slingbacks. Luckily, a visit to Meriken solved my problem. Yazsi Mornington is a great Japanese designer who has been doing funky and fun outfits for men and women using exquisitely hand drawn textures. In fact, his best outfits are for men (some of the THE best men’s jeans in SL), but he has put out this sweet little dress for women—Carrousel. Well, darn, if the outfit didn’t make itself.

I wanted something fun and casual, so I paired it with hair from another great Japanese designer, boo Nakamura, and forewent jewelry for simple French manicured nails from Candy Nails—clean and pretty.

  1. Disclosure – Yaszi Mornington is on my friends list, however I pay for all my clothes from Meriken.

    Great review, yes they are wonderful shoes.

    Fact – Yaszi at Meriken Co. makes THE best jeans in SL full stop. If anyone can find better jeans than his Meriken Co. Jeans #101 or his new Meriken Co. Jeans Black #302, please tell me, IM will be fine – my IM’s never cap because I have no friends :-(

    By the way Harper, given my shoe collection is possibly one of the largest of any guy in SL when are you going to show some of the amazing work of Eponymous Trenchmouth.

    To all you men who say, “no one makes good men’s shoes in SL” get yourself along to one of Eponymous’s Jeepers Creepers Shoes outlets.

    Make sure you have lots of Lindens when you visit Meriken and Jeepers Creepers , not because they are expensive, but you WILL want to buy EVERYTHING, you really will and guys if you dress in gear like this as my friend Strong bad says “the ladies will be all upon’s” I am stil trying to work it out too.
