Silky Blue Skirt

So it's been absolutely ages since I did a proper Styled Outfit post (since September 25th to be precise!) and I like having these in the blog, so this is my effort to make them more!!! Please enjoy reading and comment =)

So the item I chose for today is the Silky Blue Skirt:
As you can see it's from It Girls and costs only 9SD's - it's from the 12 Days Of Stardoll campaign, so I don't know if it'll be around for long! I love the royal blue colour so much, it's versatile and super trendy, I think there's a lot you can do with this skirt:

 I tried to come up with 3 different looks, but I think the second two are rather similar in that they are mainly black - although the second has gold features while the third has white. I love the combination of the faux fur vest with the blue in the first selection of items, to me it's definitely unconventional style!

I'd love to see some of you readers stylings with this skirt!

Party Wardrobe

As it's currently the biggest party season of the year I feel a party wardrobe post is quite essential!
A New Years Eve party is kinda the one party you want to be looking your best at, for me it's about being glamorous, glitzy, fabulous, it's about wearing sequins, jewels, stilettos ... the list of beautiful items could go on an on!
So we've been through your capsule wardrobe of more basic, everyday items, but I think it's so important to have some special items for your, what I call, Party Wardrobe!
I don't think your party wardrobe needs to be particularly huge, but I think it needs at least several items which all seem quite different to each other so that your ready for whatever the party or celebration!

For dresses I'm drawn to whites and blues, I don't have a particular reason, but these two colours are the first my eyes go to when I'm looking for a party dress! Black is a classic as well, but if you're heading out for New Years you want to stand out rather than blend in, people will go for the 'safety' of black, whereas you'll want to take the risk!
The navy is quite classic, it works well with silver so will be easy to match up with jewellery, shoes and a bag(that maxi nelly dress already has some cute silver jewels adorning the neckline - a perfect starting place!). White looks great with most accessories, I think bright or jewel colours would look best, but that might just be me! The white is a great base if you're wanting to wear statement accessories or makeup. A very quick and simple styling of the white maxi would be with black:
If you're not a fan of white or blue, then the world is quite literally your oyster! The plaza currently has 835 dresses for you to choose from - there will be at least one which is perfect for your party wardrobe! The new Nelly.com additions will be sooo helpful for your party wardrobe, there are many dresses there which are ideal for NYE =) Plus there's the bazaar where there are many many mroe dresses for you to browse through.

If dresses aren't your thing, then don't fret, glitz and glam comes in many packages other than dress shaped ones! I would easily wear any of these pieces for a party styled outfit, not necessarily together, but maybe as a focus piece.
Just from this you can tell I love glitter and jewels! But I've also encorporated some deeper colours in the trousers that I've shown, I think these colours are just so inviting and warm and enjoyable to wear!

So now accessories. Shoes are the big ones here - heels are a must, I could never ever ever put flats into my party wardrobe! Heels will make you taller and you'll notice the difference - they really add confidence and elongate your legs making your pins look super long and perfect!
Shoes will, a lot of the time, be reliant on the clothes you have in your party wardrobe, so I wont go into too many details as you wont necessarily have all the items that I have in my party wardrobe - but the one pair I wouldn't miss out are these:
These are from the new items in the Nelly.com store and I wouldn't ignore them! I've been wanting a pair of shoes literally exactly like this for like ever on Stardoll, and at only 9 SD's these are practically a steal! 

So that was very much a quick tour of the Party Wardrobe, I hope it might help you decide what to wear tomorrow night! Looking forward to posting more wardrobe posts in the new year =D

Capsule wardrobe - Accessories

Ok, so hopefully you all read the first Capsule Wardrobe post featuring clothing, and now here's the accessories one! As well as the usual bags, shoes etc. I'll also be putting in tights, I wouldn't really call these items either clothes or accessories, but as I think this post could be quite short, I'll add them in here =)

Tights are kind of a given, but they often get forgotten =) Two pairs are all you need for your doll, both black, but one thick and one thin. These will get you through any season and almost any outfit, and for me they are quite invaluable. The thick ones are from Fallen Angel and the thin from VOILE, each pair only costs 30 SC's so there is absolutely no reason for you not to have a pair!
One pair is all you need! Yes, I have like 8 in my closet, but those are extras and pretty non essential! A great classic pair that suit your doll are the only pair you will ever really actually need. Black ones are the best classics to get you through, mine come from Chanel, but there are numerous pairs in the plaza for you to choose from =)
I am a huge belt person, I love them a lot, and sometimes they can be the only accessory in an outfit. Black and white are the two most essential colours and between them they can easily go with any outfit or clothing item. I prefer them skinny and sitting on the waist, but you might not, so be sure to browse around for ones which will suit the clothing and style that you wear. My black one is from LE, but there are many more in the plaza, and my white one is from the Apres Ski store(perfect for picking up winter pieces!). I also like having a third belt which is detailed and that little bit more special than a plain black or white one, so I have a gold leopard one for those occasions when a basic one simply wont do! Again with this third belt it's important to look around and find that special on for you!
So shoes are so hard for me to whittle down to a minimum! The first absolutely absolute essential pair is black ankle boots - no question! These are like the food of my Stardoll wardrobe! This pair are StarDesign, and sadly the shoe design is no longer available, but you can find them in the bazaar. There are also pairs in the plaza, the nelly.com store has some good ones =) Next are a pair of white courts - these wont be for everyone, but white is one of my top colours and these, for me, are essential! They literally go with everything and anything =) Now you'll notice I've got a third, but blank, mannequin there and that is because I feel there should be a third pair (an amazing, beautiful pair of stiletto heels), but me being me I couldn't choose that pair, I have too many I like and that I want! And I know many of you will be the same about your shoes =D
With bags, 3 are all you need - black, white and nude. "What?" I hear you question as I only picture 2 above - well that's because I haven't actually got the ideal white bag as I'm yet to find one! It hasn't been a disaster yet, but I'm sure in the future with my recent white 'craving' it will be a major fashion problem for me!
So my black one is from Nelly.com and my nude one from YSL. You'll have noticed both are clutches, which is my personal preference in bags, I find them often easier to work with outfits rather than shoulder bags, but everyone will be different =)

So that's it with the Capsule Wardrobe posts - but don't worry, there are many more wardrobe posts planned, including Party Wardrobes, Holiday Wardrobes and Winter Wardrobes!

63 Day Challenge: Day Sixty Three!!!!!!!

Day Sixty Three Featured Item: Sparkle Tube Top
Love this top I got from the first LE collection, rarely wear it actually!
 Not a fan of the shoes - and the pose makes it look a bit less elegant than I would like, but I'm still happy with my extremely simple look for the last day!

Capsule wardrobe

So what is a capsule wardrobe you ask? Well it's a collection of several essential items that will be your basics, this can be updated throughout different seasons to work with the trends, but they will always be your basis. The pieces wont go out of fashion, may be called "classics" and will be pieces that you always use and want through your time at Stardoll.
Your capsule wardrobe should really be as small as possible, your SD one will definitely be different to one you might have in RL, but I'm going to focus on SD here in this post =) The order in which I've named items isn't really specific, it's just the order items go in my closet!

So a shirt means like an actual collared shirt, not a t-shirt as some might say (to me, and many others, these are tee's). A lot of other sites say you need only one, but I'm leaning toward two - one white and one another colour of your choosing. My preference is for black, but go for any colour that you like and wear (remember, not just a one-season piece!). My white choice is from the old DKNY store and can be found in the Bazaar these days at not too bad a price(mine cost around 80SD's, it's a lot, but it's a capsule piece, you're meant to have it for years!), I wear it a lot as I find it a really easy piece to throw on if you're in a hurry. My black shirt is from the Versus Versace Tribute store and took me a long time to find at a good price (150SD's) in the Bazaar, but I think the shirt is worth it for me with the number of times I've worn it and the number of items it works well with.

Ok you can't really call these tees, but they are in my tee section of my closet so I'm going with it! You will only really need two simple tees in your capsule wardrobe, one black and one white, these are the basic essential colours of your top collection! I've chosen the Amy Claire Tanks, but there are plenty out there for you to choose as your own. I don't think much explanation is really needed for these - they're versatile, wont go out of style - they truly are investment pieces! It's always worthwhile, if you really want a certain one, to just spend the money on it - you'd rather spend a lot on one piece you know you'll wear and get use out of, than spend it on 5 or 6 of the same item trying to decide which you like best.
Featuring shorts is a bit hit or miss to me, you either wear them on your doll or you don't - it's pretty simple, but I thought I'd include them for those that do like the odd wear of shorts. I would say a denim pair is absolutely essential - this pair from Nelly.com recently replaced the other denim pair I used. These are the ideal denim shorts really, they're short, but not too short, and their denim has great texture and looks detailed, makes them worth the 14SD's I paid for them! I am also including a second pair of shorts, this black pair are much more dressy than denim, and this pair comes from Pretty 'n Love. I've seen these worn so many times around Stardoll that I can't keep count, but they look perfect with tights in the winter or bare legs in the summer - they are definitely one of the most versatile pairs of shorts I've come across =)
 I am very much big on seasonal jackets as you'll have seen on my previous posts, but I'm not so big on classic jackets that will last, so I've only selected one to be in my capsule wardrobe. This black open jacket it a great piece to have, it can help finish off almost any outfit, and looks great with skirts, dresses or trousers. Unfortunately this jacket is unsellable and no longer in the Plaza, so if you didn't get it then you wont be able to now, but there are plenty out there for you to decide which is for you!
So I really don't have any Capsule Wardrobe dresses - I don't have any that I feel are pieces that I wear a lot or that are classics, I'm not much of a dress person actually! I'd rather skirts, jeans or trousers. But anyway, dresses aren't pieces that I feel need to be in a capsule wardrobe - I mean fair enough I have plenty of dresses in my closet if you've looked through it, but I wear them only on the odd occasion really, if you browse my 63 Day Challenge posts, you'll see what I mean!
 So I've placed 3 items in this category, a black skirt, a white skirt, and a maxi/coloured skirt - this last piece really is necessary if the majority of your other wardrobe pieces are black or white. If you're not a fan of white, then the white skirt isn't a necessity like it is for me - but I did want to include the option. The black one, in my opinion is most important as it will get you through any style, occassion or phase, and it will still be a cute stylish black bodycon skirt. 
You want one or two pairs in your capsule wardrobe. Mine would be both skinny and one pair black, the other dark denim/dark blue. The black pair shown are from Bizou and cost only 50sc's, which is almost a steal for such a key piece - it amazes me that some people don't own these! You could also choose the version from BASICS, but my personal preference is for the Bizou ones, the fit makes the difference to me. The blue ones shown are from the Galliano store in Harrods and cost 18sd's, these recently replaced another pair I previously had. I know at 18sd's they're a bit pricey, but to me they are worth it - they could be described as "classics" by some and therefore are definitely worth the spend.
Your capsule wardrobe doesn't need anymore jeans, but of course most dolls own more than just 2 basic pairs - these are simply additions to your capsule wardrobe to work with the current trends and styles =)
 Trousers are sometimes a bit of a rough spot that people have, and I'm not sure why, because I love them a lot =) One pair is a definite for your capsule wardrobe, but I've added a second pair to mine as I would wear them more often that a dress. The pair to have is a great black pair, these look great with any style of top and any pair of heels. You can then easily add in any accessories to be the stand out pieces. I chose a second pair - the highwaisted ones, as they work really well for me. It's important to find out what sort of pieces work well for you and then sort out accordingly. Like there's no point in buying something you really don't like, but you want to have it because I or someone else has it.


So that's the clothing of my capsule wardrobe - just 14 pieces!

That's all for now!
Accessories coming soon!

To platform or not to platform?

So platforms are in high abundance in RL, but I feel they are an area which Stardoll lacks in slightly, so users have come up with their own alternative - wearing multiple pairs of shoes, giving the impression of one fab pair! 
 {Photos = Pinterest}
You will be currently shouting at your screens that I'm a bit behind with this trend, but have no fear, it's been around, along with my knowledge of it, for quite a while. I'm not really that much of a fan of it, you see people badly matching up shoes to wear and it just makes their outfits look awful! It's when I see things like that that makes me think I will never ever do that, I wouldn't want to make myself look like that. So one pair of shoes at a time is all fine for me!
But there are members who have paired up shoes beautifully and have spent plenty time coming up with a great look, so I wanted to write this post to show a few =)
 Veeruska perfectly pairing studded pumps with platform heels.
Gulsykutza wonderfully working laced boots with platform ankle booties.

P.S. On the lookout for fab looks to feature - I feel I miss them from the blog!

63 Day Challenge: Day Sixty One

Day Sixty One Featured Item: Gold Party Jacket
 Finally gotten around to choosing this jacket - I love the gold, and am excited to finally be wearing it!
I went for a real winter party look with this outfit, choosing the Nelly.com white dress to wear with the jacket. I really wanted to stick with the gold theme, so chose accessories accordingly - I love the heart bag, it's to die for and one of my top party pieces in my closet, these are the only gold shoes I have so had to choose them. I think a darker gold pair would look better, but these do just fine =) 

P.S. I am working on other fashion posts, it's just taking a while to compile pictures etc.!

63 Day Challenge: Day Fifty Nine

Day Fifty Nine Featured Item: Candie's Empire Dress
Bought this dress a loooong time ago now, and I don't feel I use it enough!
This is by no means a wintery outfit, but I did really wanna wear this dress, and it feels very girly - so pink it was!
