Hi, ou guys helped me with a make up ideas.

Now I'm back for clothes!

Have a stone to go to be back to a 12 to 14. Lost 5 stones so far!

46 and 5.4. NONE of my old clothes fit. I have aspirations of a .'capsule' wardrobe. But that may be beyond me. Does anyone have either their own pinterest boards that could help. Or blogs. Or a brain transplant.....

I want to buy say 15 items. Where do I start.

Any help transforming me much much appreciates. Any links.....

There's a great blog called "putting me together" she covers all the basics of putting a great wardrobe together. She is based in California so not much in the way of very warm stuff but the ideas and methods are the same. Another good one is the "into mind" blog

John Lewis & Debenhams have a complimentary personal styling service. It might be worth getting some real life opinions from a stylist with fresh eyes.

Congratulations on your weight loss smile Are you going for neutral colours? Some brights?

What type of things would you like to wear, are you more of a jeans person or a dress person? If you like jeans go and find a really great pair of jeans as a starting point or ditto if a dress. Don't feel you have to rush out and buy everything at once as you might get overwhelmed. As someone above said book an appointment with a personal shopper and find a style you like for your new body. Have fun!

I say try something different because you're a new person - if you're a jeans person get some cropped leggings, short summer dress and a v-necked cardi for all occasions. Or at least get some cropped skinny jeans for summer.
