Wardrobe help! Bloggy friends, Models and Mannequins.

I am in desperate need of some wardrobe help. I have been in an awful rut for months – and when I manage to find time to go shopping (DREAD!), I either can’t find something – or the stuff that I do find is outrageously priced. I decided at some point that I am in need of a style… my own – non plain Gap T-shirt – style. A look that helps define me, that showcases bits of my personality all the while complimenting my life style. WHAA?? WTH am I talking about – I can’t find a GD pair of jeans that fit me well, let alone accent my inner self. WHATEVS..

So I started a Pinterest board of Things I want to wear – I have listed casual outfits, mainly jeans with sweaters and scarves – and Toms.. apparently I really want a pair of Toms! Tall brown boots also seem to be a favorite, work outifts and accessories.

These are my 2 favorite casual outfits:

Comparing these 2 looks- it appears, I am most comfortable in jeans, t-shirts with cardigans, and large purses. I agree.. now – the thing both images have in common that I love is the use of jewelery and flats.. neither of which I own many of.. I also LOVE the gray sweater in image 1.

Work Attire: The dress code at work is business.. not business casual – although there are enough cotton pants, and questionable looking shoes (flip-flops, tennis shoes) to make one wonder.. but it is most definitely business dress code.  I have also pinned a few outfits – and found this on Pinterest – but it introduced me to this great website called Polyvore – I actually haven’t really figured it out yet, but people put outfits out there – and then it tells you where to buy each piece.. this was on Polyvore – and I think it’s a great idea. Looks like there are 3 pairs of pants for 5 days and 7 shirts/tanks or sweaters – obviously there are pieces that have been reused.

Amanda, over at MODG Blog, has been trying on post-prego jeans. I have been so interested in her posts (she takes pictures of herself standing on the toliet.. makes me laugh everytime!) – however, she is skinny and petite. I am neither.. I mean, I’m not a gargantuan or anything – but I am overweight (working on it) – and normal; not too tall, not too short, size 7.5 shoe.. maybe – just right.. well I would be if I wasn’t overweight. Not to throw myself a pitty party or anything.. geeze – Debby Downer? Man! Okay, back on track. Hayley over at Tiny Twig goes out on a Limb has put together a little bloginare on the “No-Brainer wardrobe” – she has such cute style – but again, tiny and cute.. So I really do need to find that perfect balance of drawing inspiration from everything around, and trying to become that person or model or mannequin. Anyway, she had us pin stuff onto our pinterest and then share the link – that got me looking at other peoples pins, and found some interesting things.

I did a search for “work clothes” today on Pinterest, and wouldn’t you know – found this awesome page: http://pinterest.com/source/corporette.com/

Off topic: Do you remember that movie?? Kim Catrall and Andrew McCarthy at their finest!

Where do you draw inspiration from? What’s your favorite article of clothing?
