Self Image and Style - HELP
I need help. Has anyone else had trouble with their personal style?
I am losing weight, and am in 12's but almost in 10's. Ready to try and buy some new clothes.
Work nowadays is business casual, so I'm flexible there.
I have been overweight so long, I am no longer in touch with style, and it appears that the dreaded 1978 fashions I ditched years ago are all the rage. Cowl necks, flare legs, lowrider pants, peasant tops.
I just can't get into this 'new' (old?) look. And is it too 'young' of a look for a 38 year old?
I want to look stylish. I used to enjoy the clothes in the Chadwicks catalogs, and the like. But even those don't appeal to me.
Nothing in the store now grabs my attention. Just can't seem to be 'one' with any of the styles out there. It's either 1978 or classic prep. No in between.
Anyone else survive a self-image battle like this? At least I can go 'shopping' in my closet, and wear a lot of the clothes I haven't worn in years. But will I be a fashion don't in my straight leg jeans?
