Odds and Ends

Designers work hard to  create coordinates and looks that work perfectly together, but I'm the sort of rebel that likes to do my own thing.  If you're a rebel, too, don't be locked into outfits as they come out of the box.
The real fun is making a look that is uniquely yours. Use the pieces from different outfits together.
The really well done ones will work together just like the separates in your RL wardrobe and you won't know what you might love until you try it. Play with your clothes a bit and try colors you wouldn't ordinarily wear.
Be sure to try the DEMOs which most designers provide for just this purpose.

For instance: this top from Tori's Styles comes in a variety of colors and prints. I chose the pink roses above because I was going for the "Irish Rose" look, but by changing the color palate just a tad to the lilac, the look changes dramatically

The jeans are Brenna from I.M. Collection.  These are available in 3 denim shades with silver or gold accents and the textures are wonderful!

The clothing options here are available this month @ Designer Showcase.

One thing that we can do in SL that's not so easy in RL, is to change our hair and eye color to coordinate with our outfits.

This month Dulce Secrets offers eyes called Destiny for the Catwa heads. They're pretty with the right amount of shine and shadow to make them very realistic and are available in 3 collections.
I was surprised to find that I liked the brown ones best; I usually go for green. Try a DEMO to see which ones you like best. *
