coffee && cigarettes

04.12.2012

the third annual pose fair is starting up soon… on *april 15th* to be specific… and i am so excited for it!

as someone who takes a lot of pictures in world, i honestly rely on the creativity of all the talented pose makers out there on the grid to help me make my snapshots look the best they can. it doesn’t matter how nice an outfit of mine looks.. if i’m not using the right poses to show it off or compliment it, then i’m just not doing my job!

so having a whole event filled to the brim with poses, and only poses (from over *100* brands, no less!), makes an amateur photographer like me all kinds of giddy~

04.12.2012

all of the poses i used in my pics for today, including the cup o’ coffee (that i could seriously go for in my rl right now…), will be new && out @ pose fair this year from glitterati. i practically live on coffee, i am a certified caffeine junkie, so these poses were totally made for me.

i’m also showing off some more of my haul from collabor88 — this cowl-neck sweater is from kyoot, the vintage cigarette holder is from the sea hole (and actually comes with earrings and a bracelet as a set!) && the pretty black ‘n’ white bracelet is just one of many color choices offered by earthstones. and since i was already in mostly monochrome, i decided to pair it all with a *mesh* black and gray skirt i picked up from cold logic, some gartered socks from league (which are some of my favorite stockings in my inventory), a gray purse from toki doki && a pair of saddle shoes from coco.

nothing goes better with black than white… nothing goes better than coffee with a cig (especially in the mornings, whoo boy)… and nothing goes better than vixxie and new poses! there’s just a few more days until pose fair starts && i cannot waaaaaiiiiiit!! \o/

yeeeeeup.

i know it’s a li’l obscured by my hair && my purse strap, but that’s what my shirt says. it’s new from blah and i was *so* amused by it that i had to blog it. and to me, it sounds so sarcastic (which is right up my alley, i speak sarcasm fluently~) that i dressed both with cute pieces && a bit ..anti-cute along with it, just to go “theme”.

02.28.2012

i also felt like going with contrasts in other ways — gray top && gray bottoms, but with some *seriously* colorful accessories. gray and teal look lovely together, as does gray and yellow, so all three at once made for a nice combo. ..imho. 😉 and i’ve been needing an excuse to use this bag from toki doki, that li’l owl face is so cute i could just die. thankfully it matched (or matched as best as the rest of me “matches”, bahaha), but i probably would’ve used it anyway. owl purses are most *definitely* kawaiiiii~

stumblebum

in case you haven’t heard… stumblebum is *back*! \o/ i was so excited to see this event come back && to see that it include some of my favorite designers, too. every other week there will be a new color palette theme and a new set of designers from the list participating (and what a list it is! you can peep *all* the listed designers here).. along with a guest or two in the mix as well. and the items for new stumblebum && the new year did *not* disappoint!

01.01.2012

the colors for this round were silvers and grays and teal.. and i gotta say, i am loving the palette. i just don’t wear enough teal in world, even if it’s def one of my favorite colors, so i had an excuse to cover myself head-to-toe in new turquoise hues!

01.01.2012

in this look, i’m wearing several of the items out for stumblebum.. the pom-pom pigtail hair is from truth (and is discounted 50L per color pack, making it 200L each color.. so worth snaggin’ while the sale is going on!), the minty sequin dress is from illusory, the over-the-shoulder bag is from toki-doki, the gorgeously large earrings are from aura (and are mesh!), the eyes are from insufferable dastard && the open-arm pose i used in the first pic is part of the set out @ frooti.

all the colors are complimentary && look *so* good together. there are several choices in color for the clothing && accessories, if minty-teal isn’t your thing, and there is even furniture (from cheeky pea, that is absolutely adorable) and other sets of poses on top of clothing and accessories from the rest of the designers on the list. you can see the full haul o’ goodies here if you’re curious, but you should definitely pop around && visit the participating stores. lovely new items in such pretty colors.. celebrate the new year && stumblebum’s return with some 2012 shopping! 8D
