Need new clothes

musings of a housewife had this great blog on fashion must haves. I really need to get serious about updating my very shabby (but not chic), dated wardrobe. For the past 6 years I have not really wanted to spend much money or attention on clothes because I knew I was still going to be getting pregnant and losing baby weight for a few more years. Now that I am out of that phase, I feel like getting my wardrobe in order. I need to have appropriate outfits for the different occasions in my life. I still have small children with sticky hands, so I will probably not spend a lot of money on expensive, impractical clothes. I did find a great little black dress at Kohls and it is machine washable. I thought it was going to be hard to find a dress that looked good, but this one hides what needs to be hidden and accentuates my curves.



This dress makes me feel a little like Audrey Hepburn. Now I just need the right jewelry and shoes. Any ideas????

I am going to be seriously cleaning out my closet in the near future. If it is stained (like most of my clothes) or doesn't make me feel good when I am wearing it, it goes to goodwill. I may be left with 5 items, but this will FORCE me to buys something new to replace it. When I am out I may see a beautiful sweater or something but think to myself, "I don't need that because I have that one black sweater in my closet all ready." However, I never wear the one in my closet because it is itchy and the sleeves are too short. Can anyone relate???

um.... OH YES! I'm in the same phase of being ready to leave the 90s! he he

I have to confess that I've started not paying attention to how much things cost (though I do pay attention to what stores I go in. :) ) I'm at the point - if I wear it and I look good in it, it's a good thing!

I totally agree! I have started spending more money on clothes and buying better shoes-no more Payless! Buying quality "classic" clothing makes more sense than purchasing cheap trendy stuff. I really feel that more expensive clothes DO make you look and feel better. Besides, I love to shop!

Very cute dress! I love clothes and shopping. And I get rid of stuff regularly. I think the shoes for the dress should be some awesome peep-toe heels. Black would be practical, but not very exciting. Maybe red, or black and red if you could find a cute pair?
Have fun shopping. And Michele D shoes at Dillard's are very comfortable and not too expensive (about sixty dollars a pair, but well worth it).

Definitely red shoes! I got a great pair of red, peep-toe, patent ones (all the trends for fall in one!) at Target. Love them!
