I’ve been thinking again.

A bit ago, I saw this photograph of a girl sitting on a bench in a red beret, so imagine my surprise when I saw Truth Hair put out Edith, hair with a beret.  This photo was meant to happen!  So, I used a photograph as inspiration.  Some things helped in the process of making this photograph happen.  Fri.day had a retirement sale (probably over by the time you read this-ends Jan 13).  This is awesome for three reasons: discounted clothing, more new mesh items to come in the future, and I scored some items that work well under my mesh stuff, like this dress (which I just used as a top).  I was hopelessly looking for something to fit under this jacket and the shirt and tie from this dress fit nicely under, and it adds a bit o’ character to the overall outfit.

If you like to stay up to date on real-life inspired fashion, then Vive Nine is your store.  Leather-sleeved jackets are most certainly trending, and this jean jacket can be versatile-dress up, dress down–your still in style!  Glasses as accessories are also a current trend, and I decided to be a bit more studious today.  I’ve been thinking again.  You can think for yourself too by purchasing a pair from SOVI3T.

The rest of my outfit are clothing must-haves, from Izzie’s, black tights, and from N-Core, red heels.  Shhh.  I found another pair of red shoes, and here I thought I didn’t have any (you will have to read my previous post to understand), however, these I can wear with tights.

And, there you have it folks- these glasses make me wanna read a book or you know, something smart, so off I go…..

Vive9 created an awesome dress available at Vintage Fair.  You need this dress. The dress has realistic texturing and uses standard sizing.  I tried my best to over accessorize to give me more of an 80s vibe.  Mons has some great accessories that can spice up your outfits.

Strands of a Former Life

Pose: !bang-stand 267*

Pose: !bang- Stand 269

So last night, I was a bit obsessed with my new poses.  I had just gotten some discount items at Stuff in Stock and I was trying to figure out how I would use my new Pose Fair purchases with my new items.  I was determined to show you some of !bang’s poses.   For those of you who don’t know, !bang is the Pose store owned by the 52 Weeks of Color founder: Luna Jubilee.   What I like about Luna’s packaging of poses is the variety.   You get a variety of options in one fatpack.   I will usually just buy her fatpacks because of that.  I know I am getting one arm up, a hand up to the face, a knee up, or an arm outstretched.  The seemingly tiny options have enormous impact.  For example above in the second photo, my body was blending into the mountain with my arm down, so I was able to use a different pose in the pack and put my body in the foreground, tilted slightly away towards the focus of my camera. If you want to check another fatpack I like a lot try Overdramatica (one of my favorites)–I hope it is still there!

Another option that some may not now about is Animare.  I use it a decent amount.  I really liked how the shoulders in the pose Stand 267 in the first picture came forward, however, my earring was stuck in my shoulder.  I simply put on my Animare Hud, clicked the head in the Hud, and turned my head until my earring was not in my shoulder.  I don’t do this usually for photos that are at a distance, but if I am highlighting jewelry or doing a close-up, why wouldn’t I want to show off that purchase?  I assume that poses were made to show off items.   This allows me to use a pose I really like, but still highlight another item I am blogging.  It is also great to move arms out of your clothes!

Lastly, I realized only after taking this photo how ginormous by boobs are in the first picture (don’t ask me how).  I realized I put on my wrong cleavage option-lol.  #SL Problems. That large is not really me, but I am sure someone might like it!
