wardrobe make over
ok so I'm sick of how I look at the moment, not the general appearance because I'm happy with most of my
features and what not. I just want tips on how I can be a bit more different in my clothing cause I always
seem to be wearing the same stuff. I'm a t-shirt and jeans type of girl and maybe will wear a denim skirt
on a hot day.
I want to revamp my wardrobe so much but being a plus sized gal its always hard to know what might suit me,
I'm trying to lose weight but only for health reasons as I do like my curves. I'm a size 18 but am tall so
can carry it off.
I can't wear high heals due to feet issues as I had a reconstruction when I was 14 and its left me with flat
feet and arthritis. So it limits the sexy shoes options lol
but any advice would be great, I'm lucky I can wear most colors too
wedges,(shoes) not too high, will hot hurt your feet or legs, better support too.
size 18 is not fat, I don't care what people say
all I can say is wear clothes that flatter you, colours that match or show off your eyes, set off your skin tone. Wear body skimming not body strangling clothes (fitted not too tight)
how about a nice cotton blouse, for a lovely pair of patnet leather flats(very shiney and cute) ssometimes just throwing on a necklace adds something
I used to work as a personal shopper, so why not post a full body picture and I will try to help, plus how tall are you? sometimes having a skirt that falls just below the knee is very cute
here's a half shot of me, not very good but lol ^^
here's a somewhat better photo
and can you tell I'm obsessed with this dog? lol that's Tilly by the way and she is blind
anyways thanks I'm 172 cm high so I don't know what other countries do for measurements but thats
what we do in Australia so I'm quite tall
and I like the idea of blouses actually anything easy but still nice ^^
I'm generally a jeans and t-shirt person myself, (mostly because I'm in too much of a rush in the morning to do anything more complicated.) Jewellery and other accessories, like scarves and belts, are simple things that can dress up an outfit and add more variety to your wardrobe. I like necklaces in particular as they don't tend to get in the way during the day, and depending on the length they can help highlight different features. The best bet with jewellery is to make sure you have a simple and easily accessible way to organize/store/display it, or you won't think to wear it. Same thing with belts, scarves, and other accessories. The best set-up is when you can just glace over them and grab the piece(s) you want to finish off your outfit as you head out of the room (this also works best if you keep them by a mirror, generally either on your closet door and/or above your dresser or vanity so you can tell at a glance whether the jewellery matches the way you thought it would.) Also, if you're like me and tend to own plain denim and solid colour t-shirts, adding a few patterned t-shirts or jeans with some embroidery or embellishments to your usual wardrobe can make outfits a little fancier. (A fix like that can just mean a series of crafting projects, not shopping trips, which is always nice.) My favourite pair of jeans have velvet ribbon roses sewn onto the leg and they still get me compliments even 3 or 4 years after I got them. I'd say michelle nailed it with her advice. Blouses are great and patent flats are awesome- perfect with jeans or a skirt; classy and comfy. Carrying an interesting handbag or purse is also nice sometimes if you feel you need a little extra something- since it's not a piece of clothing you can go a little more all out, particularly with colours or materials that don't necessarily suit you or would be overkill (ie. I'm not likely to go out wearing a completely sequin coated shirt, but I would carry a completely sequin coated purse.)
Hope that gives you a few useful ideas.
thanks Serpentira that has helped and I should actually get interesting scarfs and things I've steered clear of them thinking they were
too old for me or whatever but some can be quite cute ^_^
I think you look great already, this style really suits you and I love your colour choices
and scarfs are your best friends, they are great, tie it onto your bag, put it in your hair
I dress the same as you and agree with both michelle and Serpentira, especially when it comes to accessorizing (if that is even a word). I have recently decided to wear more "fun" jewelry (currently I only wear two antique family heirloom rings and stud earrings). I noticed that Charlotte Russe has some great items for only $4. Decent price when you are trying new things. I have also gotten a lot of fashion tips from mycloset.com. You can post pics of your wardrobe and build outfits, plus get feedback from other members. Good luck and have fun with putting together your outfits!!
First of all I must say I like your photos very much! <3 Beautiful eyes, hair & skin!
Since you like animals and you prefer flat shoes and I can see warm colors would look great on you, may I recommend this lovely style that I'm currently head over heels in love with? It's called Mori Girl (or Forest Girl) and it's very popular in Japan at the moment, but it can be very easily adopted and adapted for any part of the world I think!
Here you can see more pictures and read more about this style: http://morigirl.blogspot.com/
I love it because it's very feminine and gives off a very relaxed feeling! <3
