I really need some help with my appearance. After years of having wardrobes full of clothes but nothing to wear, I've finally cleared out all the stuff that I didn't like, didn't fit etc and I've been left with just a few old faithful outfits!!!! I'd really like to change the way I shop (and look) and would like a good quality capsule wardrobe.

I'm a size 14-16 at the moment (although dieting) and only 5'3". Love dresses and v-neck, 3/4 sleeved tops (round necks just make my chest look huge!). Struggle a bit to find trousers that fit properly. Can you help? Money not a huge problem. I'm thinking less items but good quality might be better?

Pinterest has lots of capsule wardrobe ideas. Are there any celebs with a style you like? I really like Fern Cotton and am planning on copying her.

I am trying to do the same as I am terrible for picking up a top here, dress there etc but not really loving them or having anything I can mix them with.

I have used pinterest for inspiration and so far I have got:

1 pair of black ankle grazer trousers
1 pair of dressy black slim leg jeans
1 pair of dark denim straight leg jeans
2 black camisoles
1 beige silk t-shirt
1 green v neck blouse
1 black silk sleeveless v neck top
1 white t-shirt
1 white blouse
1 white and 1 blue shirt
1 black and white stripy top
1 navy and white stripy vest top
1 grey, 1 black and 1 navy fine knit jumper
1 red, 1 black and 1 beige cardigan
1 black dress
1 navy dress
1 patterned dress

1 black blazer
1 navy casual blazer
1 grey and beaded short jacket
1 black woollen coat
1 navy hooded rain coat

knee high back flat boots
beige suede ankle boots
black patent pumps
black and leopard raised slip on shoes (sound odd but go with lots)
black courts
beige courts
black leather sandals
black heeled ankle boots
tan pumps

Lots of accessories - they are my guilty pleasure!
