Hi everyone, I'm Marsy101. 30 years old, married and have a daughter who will turn 2 on Thursday. I work for myself and very rarely 'need' to wear a suit or jacket... but do anyway.
Last Spring I decided to get my act into gear. I had just turned 30 and my daughter was already 1.5 years old and I'd realised I had zero style... however up until that point, I didn't care. So having awoken from the blissful state of ignorance I started reading and researching everything I could about classic, timeless style. I quickly realised I am not a fan of fashion at all, but I now pay much more attention to dressing elegantly as well as developing my own sense of style.
The changes started when I decided to get rid of my University/boarding school quiff and opt for a much more elegant side parting. That alone made me feel more confident and less of a man-child! From that point I knew the image I wanted to create for myself. Classic, timeless but with some sartorial quirks (socks/jacket linings/ties etc).
I've been lurking for months but now heading into Autumn/Winter I feel I need much more advice.
