please help this tom boy..

Posted by   + Show Post

At 27 i no longer want to be a tom boy. I want to dress my age.  I want to look pretty/ beautiful. But i have no idea where to shop.  Plus im taking a trip in march and need dresses, skirt, short, and heels. Where would someone my age shop.     sorry not a good pic.  I'm 5'4'' 156lbs and a size 8  if that helps

I'm 23 and have always been a tomboy. I'm starting to become like you - want to change it up a bit. It's hard though when this is all you've known.

Go to Dillard's, Macy's or other department store and tell the customer service person that you need help. I find that women will happily help another woman find clothes that work for her. I go to a locally owned boutique type store and say "help dress me!". The owner is more than willing to help me.

I love kohls because it fits my figure. I have an hourglass figure and I'm not a skinny
so I can't shop at most of the stores in the mall for the types of clothes I actually like. Kohls clothing fits my size 10 hips and my broad shoulders and is still form fitted going in at the waist. I love it! lol

Quoting Alyjane: I was just at kohl's yesterday! I dropped $130. I couldn't believe my frugal self did so.



Quoting HeatherMarieT88: Kohls!! They have really nice clothes and they always have sales and coupons online. Also Target. I buy all my clothes from Kohls and Target. I only shop for myself with income taxes though lol. Tight budget.

Oh and a tip from the movie "The Blindside", "If you don't absolutely love it in the store you're never going to wear it." So don't waste your money with anything that looks half decent to you. Pick things out that define who you are AND make you look like a nicely dressed sexy mamma!!!! Don't let other people talk you into buying something that you don't absolutely love on your body. You have to try everything on because things look wayyyy different on the mannequins than on real life people. If you are on a budget and you ask for the sales woman to help you then you need to clearly specify that you will only shop clearance racks or items that are under a certain $. Good luck!!
