After being around here for awhile, after lurking for a year, I don't feel I'm dressing much better and dislike a lot of what I own.
Things neither fit the way I want them to, nor do items I like make much sense together.
Getting closer, but it's a lot of effort, plenty of frustration and one of those things that I feel would go away if I threw money at it (Which I'm disinclined to do because it's lazy).
I think I'm getting SWD done right a lot more though.
i love four-pins. their editing is hilarious. AND they introduced me to hapa time. it's a godsend.
I am definitely trying to put this into practice, but my issue is still finding clothes I can buy that actually fit half decently.
The colours, and levels of formality I understand to an extent, but it's buying a pair of pants that don't make me look like an oblong with fat that's the trick part.
The fit thing is HARD! Let me tell you it is near impossible to get some of the 'amazeballz' fits we see on the people that SF group-think admires as these people all have access to tailors which know them and 'usually' have great experience; unfortunately a majority of SF does not have this access whether it be a case of budget, location or whatever else. Sometimes when we look at fit we have to be a little imprecise especially when it comes to RTW; finding pants which fit you v.well is hard take some time and some more and have a look (it took me near 6 months of research to get some 'well' fitting pants! In the end it ended up being in the shop that I though I wouldn't venture into; look around and find something that is as close as you can get to perfect.
I suggest you take advantage of these 'MTM' guys like lachy, tobi and me have and send someone like Luxire some pants that fit to remake as the pricetag for those 'exact' pants that fit great might be a bit high.
Speaking of those pants I found some! Was about a week ago but I went into Henry Bucks (usually thought it was just overpriced stuff that I could never buy; still is :P) and looked around and found same pants; luckily got them for around $180 compared to $325 as they were stock which didn't sell in the sale!
Keep going Matt I've changed the way I dress numerous times through my life; if you could see pictures of me when I was 25 we would get a laugh out of it. Though even then I enjoyed dressing; I still do today and am learning new things about it everyday!
Bugger. Apparently all the men stuff was sold out early this morning while we slept. Still there is a possibility that it is all a stuff up. The sale price was identical to the prices for body lotions.
