I'm missing out on all the fun here - I'd like to know what 'pointy-toe' shoes entail.
Like what? You're not talking actual heels are you? I'm a 'loafer' girl, through and through. Think Bass Weejuns...chunky turtlenecks and corduroy pants. Oh, I know...so very 'preppy' and probably way out of date.
Sometimes I think I take 'classic' a little too far.
Last time I wore something other than navy blue, grey or black was on Memorial Day weekend. We were having a big BBQ thing - and we ended up with 17 people coming for dinner. Feeling rather daring, I put on a pair of white jeans, topped it off with a bright turquoise slinky halter top and white strappy sandals that had actual heels on them.
I felt like....
Like a neon sign.
I got a lot of compliments....and way too much attention for my liking.
So, I've retreated. Again.
Back to the basics, where I feel a bit more comfortable.
Unfortunately - I am having a tough time figuring out my size. I shop...I try on things, and most stuff is too big. And then I go back for yet another smaller size, and that's too big too. Eventually, I give up and walk out without buying anything.
A few weeks ago, I did buy a few things - just cheap t-shirt type tops. I come home, and I'm thinking that the stuff I've bought might be too small. So I try on the few things - only to have my husband say, "That's way too big".
There's a real adjustment going on here.
And in the meantime - I don't know where to shop or what to buy.
Like I said, I'll be spending the next few months in my bathrobe.
Then, when I get to goal - I'm hoping that I'll somehow find the courage to try some colour, some pointy-toe shoes or whatever it is that makes one seem 'current'.
And I'll keep reading this great thread for ideas.
