Sometimes it is a hard decision how you want your photo to look like.
This time I was pondering a lot between an editorial look, or just find a matching landscape or if I wanna build a scenery on my platform.
I started with roaming around sims to find an ice location first when Anderian IMed me and we talked about editorial shots. I told her I am looking for something modern hippy looking when she suggested to just try google for 70s editorial fashion shots.
And there my vision of a landscape did go… now I wanted to do an editorial one :p
Enough of story telling about sceneries, let’s get the view on the clothing 😉
The amazing “Happy Stroll in the Rain” jeans from Whimsical Imaginarium are the base of my todays styling. I got those amazing pants from Bodza, while we were talking and I fell immediately in love with them. I have a heart for wide flaired bell bottom pants in RL as well… I am not a 70s person, I was born in the 70s so the basic late 70s trends did pass me by while being a little child. Even if I remember some of those being in my wardrobe.. especially those weird wide dresses that started to get wide under the chest…
Now you gonna say ‘Oh yeah there is millions of those pants on the grid’ but well.. those catched my eyes because of the amazing texture and as well with the idea of having one lower leg colored different. To cover the color break on the knee, Bodza put some delicate lace and as well to repeat the colors ( yes I am a friend of no standalone colors… :p ) one oft the back pockets has the same color.
The amazing textured top is made by Asia Rae and it was a perfect addition to the amazing jeans – style and colorwise 😉 The “Demy Crop Top” comes with a color HUD so you can customize the top to your needs colorwise.
For the jewelry I decided to go for a mix and match of 2 different Kungler sets and an amazing necklace from Charm. The cool glasses that did underline the modern 70s look I got from agapee. They are kinda funny to use, as they come with a HUD that lets you move the glasses up to your head with an animation and as well you have 3 options for the glasses to fold the front side up.
For the hair I decided to go with a new style from Truth, which was released on the actual round of the Enchantment event. The hair is very versatile too as you get different options for the forehead part and several sizes for all kind of chest sizes.
The best shoes to go for todays look were wedges (Grand I can hear you on that one and believe me, usually I am not a friend of wedges myself, but that look simply called for them!)
The “Oksana Leather Heels” from [MODA] actually did not look that bad and with their huge HUD – all of their shoes have that huge HUD – it was quite easy to match them in color to the rest of the look 🙂
Since I wanted something clean and editorial looking, as well as something with sit poses – which are so underestimated in so many blogs – I tried my luck on the “Lovers Crate Seat” from Shutter Field. The poses in that little cube are quite awesome, they just did not go too well with my outfit, so I just tried random poses out of my inventory to make it work. I realized very fast that having long legs and being a little bit above the average in terms of height, makes sitting a huge challenge :p . But with some minor graphic surgery even that worked out quite well. Since I am not that great skilled in working with editing programs, I can promise it really only was minor fixing 😉
So in the end, it was the editorial version for today, but like I said to Tempe lately when we talked – and she agreed with me – … every style, every look, can call for something special. I neither wanna miss the fun roaming around on sims to find amazing locations, nor I would like to just have self-built sceneries or only white screened pictures for my blog. It is a lot about moods, feelings and emotions, that make me decide what the end result will be 😉
