Three Big Fashion Rules You Should Be Breaking

As I was going through my virtual closets this week, I decided to share my love of all things shocking by taking on the "predictable" to deliberately break some unwritten fashion rules.  So with black eyebrows and blonde hair and a lipstick other than red or pink, I set off to my favorite sinking ship at the Microwave Club docks to take some pics of what some may say are fashion no no's.

I'll show you what I mean as we go through my outfit to find out what Top 3 Fashion Rules I like to break and why...

Rule #1:  Only items that come with your Avi work with your Avi...

First I'll take a closer look at hairbases with hair.  In the photo example here, of course I am wearing a mesh head and so have the Lelutka blonde hairbase on and found it worked very well with one of my favorite hairstyles from enVogue--the Clarissa.

Try a lipstick color other than red.

But, to flip this topic around, I wanted to highlight enVogue's selection of beautiful hairbases for one linden that I think are a must have.  (Made for non-mesh heads of course).   I love that they took time with the hairline to make it look realistic and feminine.  Plus they are tintable to get that look just right.

If there ever was a rule to try to break it's Rule#1

Lashes that come standard with some mesh heads out there are too thick for my taste and look like glued-on tarantula legs....or you look like you decided to wear 9000 layers of mascara today.   I just wear other mesh lashes with blinker mesh heads and nobody notices.

Rule #2:  Don't mix prints...
Since I discovered Legendaire recently, I've popped in occasionally to look around and I found these stilettos with a cat print design that I absolutely love.

Rule #3:  You can't wear men's jewellery...

Here I'm breaking 2 rules together.  I'm mixing silver accessories with gold makeup and I'm also wearing a men's bracelet group gift from Chop Zuey.  

Bracelets:  Anchor of My Soul:  Chop Zuey Men's Bracelets  (former group gift and now available on the MP)

The best thing about fashion in SL is that we all look gorgeous, and so standing out from he crowd takes a bit more work.  Many people have the next thing from the latest hot designer at the newest event.  However, if you really want to stand out from everyone else, it's going to be the little things that matter that will set you apart from the crowd.

Your own unique spin on the outfits you wear that make you feel special will get the creative juices flowing.  What's your unique style?  Do you have a signature look nobody else is rocking?

Thanks for stopping by and maybe I'll see you in world with purple hair and a green hat.
