I always scrub up quite nicely for work and formal events, but when it comes to every day style, I am a bit of a disaster. I don't like anything "sporty" [shudder] and it doesn't suit me anyway (am size 16 but carry it well smile Anything remotely unstructured or baggy looks like a tent on me.

What are your suggestions for good casual clothes? don't mind spending a bit as I always keep my clothes for years (and years and years...)

Im a tall size 16 (also like to think I carry it well wink , I love Mint Velvet for tops and knitwear also like a bit of Great Plains for tops

As discussed on a recent thread, I find toping off my jeans and top with a jersey or knitted blazer (nothing too formal!!) makes me feel much more "together"

And a cure pair of ballet pumps and a fab slouchy leather bag does no harm either

Come over here! Lots of ideas and inspiration that might help. (Including more wise words from Gillybobs!)
