HAH! Today I returned:stolenwine wrote:yeah, i think most of the stuff i have is waaaaaaay past the one month limit. and all of it just looks wrong on me. i guess ebay is the only option if i want to make at least some of the money back.
i'm still trying to figure out what styles suit me best. sometimes i think i have it figured out but then i'll put something on and feel totally clueless again. i'd love for someone to tell me exactly what clothing styles suit my body type and what type of haircut/style best suits me too. i'm scared of trinny and susannah though.
5 items at Primark
2 dresses at Topshop (not the ones I showed off here, I still really like those!)
I'm the same, absolutely. My specialty though, is being convinced something is great, take tags off, wear maybe once or twice before realising it's completely wrong for me. I do it SO often! But then, I also go in cycles of liking things, so stuff I have dismissed earlier can be "refound" later. It's silly, but my 10 quid dark skinny jeans from Primark are a thousand times lovelier and better than my 40 quid Topshop ones, that feel horrid in that saggybuttandhips-fit way. It's so random what's great.
Also, HELL yes I agree on the not knowing what suits you! Part of me wishes I was back in more formfitting days like what Joan wears in Mad Men. It's an awesome look when you're a curvy tall lady. But then again, it's so easy to feel all dress-up and I like being comfortable. Also when I wear dresses like that with flat shoes I feel a bit frumpy, so i'm hoping to find cute structured stuff that is still short, so I don't feel weird with my lack of heels. I like that New Look dress I bought for that, although it's admittedly more 40s. But I love that it is SO curve-friendly. Look how much cool stuff she wears:
