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

Hmmmmm I'll have to swing by old navy this year after taxes and see what's up! Lol :)

Quoting onaflowers: My body is like that and old navy seeetheart cut jeans fit me perfectly.



Quoting HeatherMarieT88: 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.

Go to a dept store or Ulta...they will help you.  Or just buy cheap makeup until you get the hang of it.  You can even YouTube it.

Youre very pretty! Your eyes stand out! I would say target, jcpenny, macys, sears, maurices, glicks.

If youve never dressed up, its going to feel weird to you for awhile. You will think "god this looks ridiculous" but it wont look ridic. :) good luck!

Oh just embrace your tomboy!  I promise you, you will feel so odd in those new clothes!  You won't look or feel comfortable.  You can pretty up or make your current stuff more feminine.  I'd try that before doing a whole new lifestyle change!

Is there a Sephora near you? If so go in and they will help you pick out some great makeup. You have beautiful eyes! For clothes I'm 29 and shop at Express and Macys. They always have sales and coupons.

I love J-crew but they can be pricey. Gap and loft are other favorites of mine, and more affordable.

I really like Old Navy and Target too, but they can be hit and miss and the quality isn't as nice.

I'm not really sure what kind of figure I have because I have mega wide hips (my doctor says I have "baby bearing hips"), short torso, and somewhat broad shoulders. 😞
