What do you decide?

Hair curly or straight?

Glasses or contacts?

Skirt or jeans?

Perfumed or natural?

Shave your legs or leave 'em alone?

Boots, heels, or sneakers?

Jewelry or no jewelry?

Do your under garments match?

Hot rolled for loose curls for control (thick & ginger)
Jeans, but skirt if dinner
Always YSL Paris~!
I ask my date if I need to wear kicks for walking
A few pieces ( found men can be intimidated by jewels)
I love to match, but depends on what I am wearing ATM

It would depend on time of year, occasion, mood and company....but I am not really very good at dressing up, being the "casual" type. Oh well, here goes:

Straight hair and possible a few waves as I have that of nature (when it decides to be wavy, that is). I don´t have a straightening iron, although I have thought about it.

I wear my glasses all the time, except when asleep...

Skirt or a dress if the occasion is right (not for a movie or a light meal/coffee with girl friends), otherwise jeans.

Perfume. I have a few to choose between, some are light "everyday use" kind of perfumes while others are heavier and meant for evening use/going out to party.

Regarding shaving, it depends. I would shave when going out in summer or more than sitting in a restaurant/going to a movie with my girl friends.

Boots or heels, most likely boots with heels this time of year. It is very slippery in winter, lots of snow and ice and then it is not safe to wear high heels. I wear sneakers on an every basis (to/from work etc) during spring and summer, so I would change into other types of shoes when going out.

I usually wear a necklace and a bracelet, perhaps my rings if just going to the movies or out for a meal. However, I never wanted to pierce my ears, even as a little girl. So, nothing in my ears.

I must admit that under garments do not match too often during the week....just when I am going out for more than movies etc, dressing up for concerts with my choir or going to birthdays/dinner parties. My bad.

I always say that I want to come back as a man in my next life..

I mean even when guys dont shave no one says anything and when they have gray hair. They are more distinquished..

Yes, I remember when we were having my high school reunion a couple of years ago a man was asking what to wear.

Sometimes I don't think men realize how many decisions we make before we leave to go out. Most of these things depend on my mood and where I'm going. I almost always wear boots in the winter and heeled sandals in the summer. My hair is always an issue since it's half curly and half straight and has to be coaxed either way. I rarely wear skirts out, but the jeans I wear take time to decide. The top is always the hardest decision to make. If I plan on my undergarments matching, sometimes that plan gets foiled if I decide to change my shirt since certain bras only work with certain tops.

Being a woman is a lot of work!

It all depends on where I'm going and who I might see out. If I'm into someone, and think there's a chance I'll bump into them, I'd curl my hair(I don't wear glasses), I'd probably opt for a dark wash jean but would pair with a super cute feminine top, no perfume, shave-check mark, boots, jewelry-yes and my undies would not only match but they'd be HOT. If I'm just going out with girlfriends for a movie or dinner, I might alter the above somewhat...I might be lazy and skip the shaving, wear my hair straight and might not bother with the matching undies!

Probably straight

Definitely contacts



Wouldn't shave


No jewelry

No match

That's mainly the place I go are local comfortable places where I already know everybody and the chances of meeting someone would be like hitting the lottery.

Oh, and when you write "depends" in response to an undergarments question, it gives me a completely different picture than you intended!
