Pose Store of the Day: Imperial Elegance!

This seems to be "Love Our Posemakers" week on different blogs, and well it should be! Posemakers are, unfortunately, the unsung heroes of the blogging/modeling world. Where would we be without them? They are the reason we look so damn good showing off clothes or hair or whatever. If not for the posemakers, we'd be standing around in all our pictures with our hands on our hips, looking at our shoes.

Today's pose post is one near and dear to my heart, because we'll be taking a look at my friend Sai Pennell's store, Imperial Elegance.

Sai is extremely talented in so many ways, and she keeps that talent bundled up inside one of the cutest avatars on the grid. When I first met Sai last year, she was doing a bunch of different things, such as skirts, tanks, eyelashes, furniture...just whatever caught her fancy that week, I guess. :) But she seems now to be focused just on poses, which is awesome, because if you want great poses for fashion blogging, Imperial Elegance is THE store to go to. Sai has a great eye for creating poses that are perfect for showing off clothing without too many twists and weird turns. They're very natural, and for a lot of my fashion reviews, that's exactly what I need.

There was no way at all that I was going to be able to show off all the poses I have from Imperial Elegance, so I just caught a few.

From the Vogue set.

As you can see, the poses are just SO fantastic for showing off the clothing. The arms are gentle and the legs are not twisted in some weird way. The focus isn't "Oh my god, what's wrong with her back?" It's "Oh hey, that's a nice shirt."

Sai even has a pose set that's just perfect for showing off jewelry.

Since she's a fashion blogger herself, Sai knows what is good for pics. :) [She also has more taste than should be legal, but that's not a surprise to anyone who knows her.]

Sai also has more more fanciful poses, poses for floofy skirts, and just cute poses. And couples poses too!! She also has 2 free female AOs available, including one for larger sized avatars. There's also a lucky board, and if you get into her group, from time to time she sends out free gifties. Annnnd she also does the picks reward thing. Check out March's picks reward gift. I love it! The pole is, of course, included.

I just had to tell you, although I'm sure you must have been told before, that you have the most piercingly stunning eyes. Truly beautiful.

I love Sai's gun pose pack! I don't think there is anything else like it out there on the grid.

Great post!
