{Mashup} Express Dressed Me

Express and I were out shopping yesterday and found these lace up boot-style sneakers. I had to have them! When we arrived home, I asked “what do I wear with them?!”  That’s when we started to dig in my inventory. Pulled out arm warmers, mini skirts, mini jackets then this outfit evolved.

1011aTo be honest, I wasn’t a fan but then saw all the elements together. Check out the details on the tank and the undershirt, the ribbing matches so well. Then the color in the tank with the tights, complimentary and contrasting colors together always are a fav of mine.  Not until we pulled out the backpack, a fav of mine from a prior mashup nearly a year ago, did I think “college student”. No wonder Express liked this dorky college kid look. *winks* I guess this old head can learn a lesson or two, huh?

This look came together so well, even I was impressed that he knew textures, colors and understood my easy, simple style for mashups. I couldn’t be prouder. *wipes a tear from her eye*

For this outfit, since it uses so many textures, I did the photos in my studio on a white backgroup. I used, like in all my pics, Caliah’s WL settings – can’t thank her enough for sharing the WL setup details. No recoloring or brightening in PS this time; just basic cropping and layer blending. Of course, using the rez snap in SL is key! It will help remove those jagged edges on the avatar that you see on some photos.  These simple and easy-to-follow tutorials will drastically improve your photos; no need to be afraid to try something new or rely on years of experience (or someone else’s). Simple stuff, ya know.
