HELP ME! going back to work and need suitable clothes, haven't got a clue!
Im going back to work as a coffee shop manager after 4y of sitting at home with mn ds. I start on the 15th but have 8w training first and i have been told to wear "business attire" for work. I have a couple of black suits, but need a bit.. more the shop is within a clothes shop. the clothes need to be easy to move in.
i am very petite (size 6-8 and 5'2") with larger norks d v narrow hips. my hair is dark chestnut (but more red tbh) and my skin is pale olive.
I am going back in just over 2 weeks - nothing from 3 years ago fits and what does looks cheap and dated.
I am going to try and get a session with the Debenhams personal shopper and get her to pick out two decent outfits, one black trousers based and one grey or brown trousers based. I was thinking Principles kind of price range too.
I am very clueless with fashion so I do need someone to show me a whole top/trousers/cardigan outfit or whatever.
Yes, deffo for the slim Fimbo - but also for the v tall and Lissie is (like me) 5'2"! I suppose the trousers could be shortened but sometimes it makes them look quite "boxy".
Next irritates me beyond belief but the Petite trousers in there are just the right length for me.
I think (based on my experience of BHS, which is limited) that so long as you avoid the black trousers and white shirt look, you will be far more fashionable/better dressed than any of the other staff!
