In my teens and early twenties, i always managed to be smartly dressed, hip, um..."hot." Then i moved to Washington, DC. And gained 50 pounds. I lived there for five years. I blame DC more than i will ever blame being heavy, but the combo was really hard on my fashion sense.
I've lost the weight. I'm 5'7" and very happily a size 8. Heck, I can wear anything suddenly!
AND, I've just moved to New York City. Home of the itty bitty hot chicks. Wearing impossibly cute get-ups. Erfh.
So, where do I start? I am not terribly feminine, and the fashions this season are so ..."pretty."
I like them, but after all these years, I feel like dressing fashionably is silly. How do i break this cycle, embrace fashion affordably, keep a tailored look while remaining ergh..."hip."
I am a bit hopelessly lost. I suppose my question is possibly, "Any affordable stores in NYC to try out some different styles?" Or, better yet, "How do i re-discover my own fashion sense?"
Oh, and I did try to search askmefi first. If there is a good thread, please send it my way and forgive me for not finding it...
