It all depends on what I find, what type of mood I'm in and if I'm trying to go to a function or something that's just everyday.

Most of the time it's a top but like a lot of us have said it really depends on the day and what I want to wear.

i usually choose which item has patterns or the boldest color and then i use other things to compliment it so it doesn't look like ur wearing too many styles at one time... so it depends...

i said top but if i know it has to be something specific (church, a interview, major day of walking, family outing etc) i then build it around shoes and bag.

The bottom of an outfit is essential to start with for me. It sets the trend for girly or sporty or whatever. :)

Top - it's the first that I notice. And I have the most out of them.

I start with the top or skirt, but voted for top here.

Bottoms. I'm more of a skirt and/or pants girl, so everything is secondary after that.

Since it's Spring, I start with the tops and shorts. I wear shorts most of the time. Dresses 4 church (omg I have 2 many now) and shoes. I wear a lot of different sandals this time of the year.

I visualize where I'm going and who with, what type of event, who will be there. Then I go to the closet to remind myself of what I might have forgotten about. Whatever grabs me first is what I go with. Sometimes I'll really concentrate on what goes best with a piece of fine jewelry that I own or a pair of shoes. The top is usually the last piece I pick out.

I usually buy whatever I see that I like, then get other things to match w/ it. Dont really have to be a particular piece of the outfits..

I start with the main piece - the dress or pants and shirt. Then I build out with the jewelry, bag and shoes.

Depends on what I have the urge to wear. Today it was a pair of shoes. Yesterday it was a skirt, monday it was a top.

I have tons of shoes, jeans are bit of a problem to find, so I start with the top and go from there.

I said top but it was a tie between top and bottoms because it really depends on the weather and if I "have" to wear pants or it it's warm enough to wear a skirt, shorts etc...

It's usually a shirt... but there are days when I want to wear a certain necklace, bag or shoe. So I get dressed around that.

Shoes, shoes, shoes! It always HAS to be the best thing about my outfit.. although handbags come in a close second.

It's different all the time...some days I feel like using a certain handbag, other days I just want to wear my red peep-toe wedges....and I go from there!
