Why You Need These Things…A Post About Staples

I Need Some ShoesThere are things any well dressed girl has to have. HAS to have. Even if you just have ONE, it should be a good one and serviceable.  Today’s post is dedicated to those things.

Good linen slacks: Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean that slacks aren’t appropriate sometimes. Boom released linen slacks for FLF and if you missed them I’d still recommend picking them up at full price. They are well made, with lovely shading and cuffs. Well made slacks are sometimes like gold in SL. Especially if you ass doesn’t hang out the back.

Basics on system layers: I could not live without my butch tanks from Sn@tch. I wear them under almost everything and anything because they come in ALL layers so I can chose whether I want tummy to show or not by matching up bottom and top clothing layers. For something UNDER mesh, you can’t beat system clothes.

Great Jackets: DCNY released this jacket a while back and I kind of adore it. But good leather jackets don’t actually have a season because even summer nights can have a cool breeze. I chose this one for Cajsa’s birthday party because it was a rock themed set originally.

You don’t need to wear something on every single attachment point, but there are some accessories and beautification items I love.

Necklaces: I love hate them. I hate making them fit. I love wearing them and using them to show off my personality.  See? I didn’t get this one fit right and I moved and it’s floating. I STILL love necklaces.  This one is from Cherry and is called THE FAIREST and has more than one stone option. It’s perfect for my look today.

Purses: I’m also huge on purses. I love purses in RL but am too lazy for changing them often. But in SL I adore a clutch. Cherry just released these adorable ruffle clutches, perfect for your keys and a lipstick.

Good Hair: We can’t afford all the hair. And even if we could, we couldn’t wear all of the hair there aren’t enough hours in the day. DEMO DEMO DEMO before you buy. I love this look from Wasabi Pills, it’s a messy casual look that suited going out.

Skin: Look you have to have one. If you aren’t made of money and able to choose every fashionista’s favorite color FATPACK – check out the FLF, My Attic and Collabor88 creators who release skin. This is from PXL Creations, Hart’s new skin JADE. The reputable sale events are great places to pick up first rate skins without being pixel broke for a fortnight.

Shoes: I’m not wearing shoes. You should buy some decent damn shoes. My suggestions would vary but Miamai, G Field, GOS, N-Core, Baiastice to name a few come to mind. Actually, leave your shoe suggestions in the comments if you like. Maybe I’ll go buy them.

These are my suggestions for the things you NEED to be well dressed. What are yours?

    I NEED a good cocktail ring to make me feel like my outfit is complete. Often it’s the only piece of jewelry I’ll wear if I’m in a rush/feeling lazy. But I feel like, for me, a really nice eye-catching ring is essential.

    I agree ‘Kota. I love the statement rings Dark Mouse made, I still wear them often. Who has made new that you like? Any suggestions? I love a big old cocktail ring!

    I agree on the ring or rings, and I try to get the rings I buy sorted into special folders when I purchase them; otherwise, searching them out from all the earRINGs becomes an exercise in tedium.

    What else? Appropriate makeup for the situation. Sometimes I will ride on the skin’s makeup by itself; but I almost always put on at least a good eyeliner and mascara to give my lashes some definition. I practically live with BOOM’s Liquid Glaze in most of my outfits, though I’m starting to find other liners.

    One thing that I can’t live without in SL are eyelashes. Without them I feel sort of naked :D. I know that mesh lashes are trendy now and that there are some great mesh lashes on the grid, but I stick to my Je Suis lashes, because they are editable lash by lash. This is a real PITA when you spend one hour to adjust them, but then the final result is amazing.
    And you are right, those pants and jackets are must haves!
