{ Waiting for Mrs. Smith }

Warning: Blathering unrelated to fashion ahead…

Ever have one of those photos that pains you.. like really PAINS you?? I admit to spending far more time than I should’ve on this particular photo but I think anyone out there who takes photos can relate to this.  When you go into a project that you know should be so simple.  You have the idea already there in your head.  You can see it clearly.  You have a plan, you just need to bring it together.  And that’s when things beyond your control come into play and suddenly, what should’ve been easy peasy lemon squeezee (yes i did just say that) is now making you want to punch your computer.  This is by no means the most elaborate photo I’ve ever done.  It’s pretty straightforward just by looking at it.  I am just one of those lucky individuals who is blessed with an annoying attention to detail (i.e. OCD).  At some point though, you have to give a bit and realize the idea in your mind is just not realistically going to happen so you make do.  In the wee hours of the morning and just on the verge of giving up I snapped a shot that I said “well, that’s not too bad” and from there to here… A photo was born.  This is the story of my labor pains.  All you mothers who’ve birthed a photo nod and give me an “mhmmm”.

P.S. I’ve never actually seen the movie “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” but GizzA‘s new Dark Glamour Gown had me feeling the need to get a pistol in a garter for my naked thigh and it immediately made me think of the movie poster and Angelina Jolie elegantly dressed with attitude. Hope you enjoyed my interpretation. Now if you’ll excuse me, Brad is calling for me.

Snowflake-full_FINAL

Hi guys and girlies! Exposeur put out this super cute photo prop box full of snowflakes and baubles on Cyber Monday and I grabbed it up quick knowing I would put it to use for some fun wintery shots.  And since The Liaison Collaborative‘s “Winter Harvest” round is wrapping up in just 6 more days to get ready for a new theme starting December 15th, I have added the lit trees from Pixel Mode.  I’m also featuring the snowflake sweater by Coquet, casual and comfy along with the {Wicked Peach}‘s rosy cheeks.  All available at TLC until December 14th.  Coldlogic just released a bunch of new seasonal clothing the past few weeks, lots of coats and leggings… like the ones I’m wearing.  And there are many other events around the grid right now featuring stylin’ snow lover winterwear.. The Arcade Gacha event that opened Dec 1st runs for the whole month and has lots of frosty finds like ATOMIC‘s adorable bunny scarf and mittens.  And FaMESHed that just opened on the 1st as well is where i snagged the sweet knit hat w/hair by Tableau Vivant and this lovely snowflake necklace by Cae’s.  N21 is in full swing and had the perfect silvery boots by REIGN to complete my style.  All this wouldn’t be complete without the cool “Lola” skin by Belleza out now for the “Winter Trend” Fair.
