I guess the problem is, I'm a jeans, t-shirt and flip-flops girl, which is why I am coming here for help!
Thanks for putting those outfits together Abby. They are a bit intimidating to me, lol. I am just so clueless on what to wear!

Well, I need outfits for my book signings.
And I'm going to be on the news, so I have to look like someone who wrote a book you should read. Soooo stressful!!

You don't have to chnge your style too much. Try dark jeans, kinda crispy 9whatever that means, I'm not the fashion expert my little sister is) and a nice shirt. Try to match the theme of your book, you know bright colors and floaty tops. A pair of chunky heels makes any outfit no matter how casual suddenly seem that much more formal.

Bright colors sounds good, but I think I'll be wearing walking shorts since it'll be really hot. I think I'll just have to look around. I've been looking online so when I get to the store I know what I'll want, but I was having a bit of trouble...I also like chunky shoes, they make me feel stable.

Seriously people, Alice would be so sad if she knew that there hasn't been a post in this thread for over a year.... :rant:

I want to resurrect this thread because I have a huge fashion problem...and I hope I'm not the only one...

okay here is goes...I'm a curvy girl, not overweight really and not a size zero but curves where a woman need curves...now I'm a huge shopaholic...Alice and I would be best shopping buddies...but lately I totally disagree with the designers, they make shirts that look like tents, absolutely no form in it and it will only look good on a size zero girl, besides that all things that should be warm have short sleaves and what should be thin and light to wear is too long...I really have the feeling that they are designing for slim girls only........

sorry about the rant...but I hope to share some ideas...tips...etc...

I know, right! I'm a little curvier myself (Actually more like slightly overweight. Not that bad but I could lose some pounds, I'm working on it). And I have such a hard time finding the right clothes. Everything I try on doesn't fit or makes me look bigger and shorter. I love the long-summer-dress-trend but I just can't wear them because they make me look extremely short.
I'm also a little heavier in the front, if you know what I mean. And when I find a shirt that fits, it's too tight up there. Or if it fits up there, it's too loose on the bottom. Everything I come across lately seems to be designed for women with no chest at all. I can't wear strapless or those little triangle bikini's or a deep neck line.
But then again, my sister is really tall and slim (she is the polar opposite of me, I'm so jealous) and she has a hard time finding clothes too. The sleeves are always too short for her.
Right now I wear a lot of basic long sleeve shirts with a vest or a nicer looking shirt on top of that.

I add darts to the very large shirts, and they turn out beautifully. Like you, I have curves, but I also have bumps. :lol: Lots of them. However, my body shape is hourglass, so I need something that shows off my waist. My answer is making four simple darts in the hem of the shirt. Two in front and two in back.
Here is a video about how to fit the shirts.
