It's pretty hard to give advice on how to change your look if we don't know what you look like! Please post a photo if you would like hair style suggestions.


Life style change started on Jan 13, 2011. I was going to lose 100 pounds by Christmas.
I lost 93 pounds by Oct 1, 2011 and am holding there for now. We'll see what happens.

I agree, it's kinda hard to say where you should GO if we don't know where you ARE

As a person who sews, all I can is that clothing that FITS is more attractive tha loose and baggy sloppy clothes. If you have wider hips, do yourself a favour and stay away from pants that narrow in to the ankle in any way.... but without knowing much about you it's hard to offer any advice

Started: 323
Now: 171 - nope, 165 now!
NOPE -- 162 now! Holy crap i've lost a PERSON!
Goal: 160

I turned 25 kinda recently and I know how ambiguous it can be developing your own style right now especially if work or school aren't dictating a specific wardrobe to you. In addition to the questions about your current look posted above, what kind of look do YOU like or admire? Like who would you say is your style icon?

If you watch a show like What not to Wear on TLC they can give you "rules" for certain body types. watch carefully. Most of them for plus size girls suggest fitted high waist, neckline that shows a "decent" amount of skin (instead of INDECENT which seems to be a trade mark for the plus sized gal) and for dresses, something that comes away from the hips.

I, myself, am a Retro FIEND so I wear a lot of retro inspired dresses. It's nice, because they all fit that silhouette.

I agree with toasted that you should start collecting looks you like and identify with and then you can find the pieces that echo that look. I like stores like Torrid for younger gals. are you familiar with them?

I LOVE fashion. I love to play dress up. It's very much how I outlet my "Drama" and my art. I'd love to give you input once you've made some choices.

Good Luck! Have fun! Reinventing yourself is SO cathartic!
