Wardrobe Makeover/Beginning after being in the Military... can anybody offer any fashion tips, advice?
After finishing up over 4 years in the military, I've noticed my wardrobe needs a complete makeover. I never had a reason to buy nice clothes before(Uniform and combat boots was all i needed) , but now that I will be going on job interviews and possibly getting a job in an office type setting, I need a complete wardrobe makeover. The brand of clothes I have now are a little to young for my age (I'm 24) . I have brands like baby phat, rocawear, eckored and lots of sweats!! LOL .. So I need to step it up to brands like bannaa republic, JCrew stuff like that but they are quite expensive and I've noticed their cuts of fabric for the ladies on the small side (I'm 5'6 145) Are there other retailers that offer the same quality nice /business type apparel without being so expensive and ones that offer various different sizes to accomadate women over a size 4? Also I don't want to dress to to old, but professional and trendy. Maybe "What not to Wear" can help?? LOL thanks guys/gals!
