So, I haven't bought any new clothes in over a year, and the majority of my clothes are more than 3 years old I don't have much stuff - 3 or 4 casual outfits and about 8 possible work outfits eat your heart out Marie fucking Kondo and it's all old. I can't sit around waiting to look how I used to, because it isn't happening. So I'm looking for some inspiration from you lot
This is what I'm working with:
5' 4" Size 18 Large-ish boobs (36DD)
Good bits: bum; boobs; legs Terrible bits: stomach; upper arms
I'm 32 and work in an office which isn't too corporate (so no jeans, but flexible otherwise). I wear jersey dresses to work and tunics with leggings at the weekends. I'm in a total rut and don't even know where to start.
So, if you're my kind of apple shape, what do you wear? If you know any stylish plus-size women, how do they dress? Any ideas of shops / ranges I could try? (My budget is more M&S than Hobbs / Whistles).
I would start with the shoes and work upwards. What kind of footwear do you want to wear at work and at weekend? I won't wear heels, for example. Not unless it's a night out by car/taxi. So I don't buy dresses and skirts which only look right with heels (back vented pencil skirts for example). Look at asos curve and Mango's 18+ online store for ideas.
Re: shoes, I basically only wear flats. I have one pair of low- heeled Mary Janes for special occasions, but generally I like DMs, Chelsea boots, ballet pumps (although can't wear if I'm going to do much walking, because they aren't supportive enough) and Converse-type things. I need new shoes as well as new everything else
I'm thinking of joining Pinterest and Instagram for the first time in my life. I don't own any jeans, so I'm planning to order a load of pairs online from various places and experiment. I think once I've found some jeans that fit if such a thing exists I can try out tops.
