24 year old anon,recently lost a ton of weight and will need to buy an entirely new wardrobe

I'd like to dress more cute and feminine now that i have the confidence to. The only problem is I have no idea how to shop and would end up wearing stuff meant for middle aged women i got at kohl's and jcpenney.I checked out express and h&m at the mall because I thought it would be what younger people wear but all the clothes looked like influencer bbl shit

What sites and shops would you guys recommend?

No. 205360

Is there a specific style or styles you like? I think that's the most important part before buying anything. It's impossible to recommend anything unless you have a more solid idea of what you'd like to dress like. Cute and feminine can be a million different things.

No. 205383

If you have some time and patience it can be really fun to go thrifting. You get unique styles, usually high quality but at a reasonable price. One trick is to visit the thrift stores in affluent areas since that's where rich people dump their old clothes and will sell at a fraction of the original cost.

No. 205398


Everyone from anons to influencers to actual magazine articles like to say this, but the pickings at thrift stores, especially of anything other than f21/target fast fashion, are SLIM. Even rich bitches are onto sites like Poshmark and RealReal by now and making a buck. If it isn't people holding onto their stuff to sell themselves, its pro flippers and vintage sellers "sourcing" anything left that was worthwhile. Thrifting is bleeeeeak the last few years.

The issue with most thrift stores is not that they don't have enough coming in, it's that they only have so much shelf space and the few good things get bought fast, leaving shelves full of crap that then just sits there. Most thrift stores actually throw away 90%+ of their donations because their shelves are already full. Google "by-the-pound" thrift stores - these aee places where the overstock gets laid out in heaps for last licks before it's thrown away/sent to malaysia/pulped. It's basically the only place to reliably find stuff if you're willing to dig.

As an example, at the regular thrift store near me you will almost never find a good normal flannel shirt, sweater, or sweatshirt. That stuff gets bought fast. But at the by-the-pound that their overstock gets sent to, it's flannel shirts and grandpa sweaters everywhere. But be warned, it can be a very janky time.

No. 205491

seconding this. I went to a goodwill outlet last month and found a leather jacket that was real leather and not plastic fake leather. it needs a little bit of TLC with some leather conditioner but it's actually in really good condition considering i dug it out of a shit bin. probably cost me about 50 cents when you get down to it.

No. 205492

Last I went to a "by the pound" store, we don't actually use pounds here so I wasn't aware of how much (or rather little) a pound was. The clothes I wanted, just a bag of them, after weighing came up as 50 fucking euros. I didn't buy them lol.

I feel like thrifting only works in specific areas. Estate sales aren't a thing here as far as I know, I've never heard of them anyway.

No. 205531

how long did you spend looking? this is about the cheapest you can possibly get clothing for, so there's really no answer other than to spend time lookong for stuff that is worth buying.

The first time I went, I spent about $100 on some very big sacks that probably weren't entirely worth the money, but I still got some nice things & stuff for my sisters that they liked. If you're selective and spend at least 3-4 hours looking through everything in the place, and only buy what ypu really like, it's a very good deal. A tip is to ask an employee when they bring out new stuff, so you can get first pick when they do. Depending on how busy it is there may be some competition.

These places, aside from vintage-wholesalers, are where depop and ebay sellers get their stuff. If you see a hipster dude in a vintage sweatshirt lounging & waiting for the new stuff to come out, that there is a depopper.

Stupid. Wearing the clothes you have and making most out of your clothing should be normalized instead of wearing a different outfit every day of the month. Clothes are meant to be worn.

No. 205581

Yes I know and I always had a small amount of clothes from growing up poor and having a hard time finding clothes my size to this day and never cared. But I feel like most of my clothes aren't formal enough for my job so I probably have just 3 tops I can wear that don't make me look unprofessional. I'm not really sure how to explain what I mean here but basically I feel like I went from having a small but decent amount of basic clothes to having to wear almost the exact same shit everyday like some American cartoon character.

Nowadays there's way more choice for someone my size that aren't just jeans with holes and basic but comfy large tshirts but it's almost only on online stores for most widespread brands available in my country so I can't try anything and have to order clothes and hope I won't have to return anything. I don't want to buy anything that I'll never wear just because it's my size by some kind of miracle because it happened a lot these past few years and I regret wasting money like that.

No. 205586

I mean, different clothes weigh different amounts. If you tried to buy 5 big leather jackets or wool coats they could easily be 5 or even 10 pounds each. Where I went, textiles are $1.50 a pound, so that would be 10 pounds per item x 5 items x $1.50 a pound = $75. So that kind of stuff, big heavy wool & leather, is still going to be more expensive. But it'll be like 30 cents for t-shirts, $1 for flannels and maybe $3-4 max even for the heaviest knit sweaters.

The price although good is a secondary perk anyway - what matters is that, when they bring out a fresh load of stuff, these are donations that nobody has looked through before you. That means that you have a real chance of finding genuine gems. I've found a genuine Giorgio Armani vintage sweater myself, some genuine vintage Christian Dior, several vintage Starter jackets, etc, but it really really does take a lot of looking.

I've met some sweet old retired ladies at these places who go there every day and actually make quite a lot selling vintage & designer on ebay. Sharks but you would never guess. If you make friends with them they'll just start giving you nice stuff, they actually find way more than they want to bother with because they're there day in day out. Also important is going there when it's not busy, this means early in the morning and weekdays especially.

I can't speak to your specific country's situation, of course.

No. 205605

I've had some luck thrifting but it was definitely better 10 years ago when going to goodwill was still for "poor" people, it's ridiculously competitive now. Lots more shein tissue paper polyester clogging the stores as well. I live in a big city and in my experience the stores in the rich neighborhoods are fully gentrified by now and full of upper class zoom zooms hunting for stuff to scalp. Personally I've had the best luck in suburban shops and thrift outlets in shitty parts of town where all the stained/damaged clothes go and are sold for like 50 cents a piece, I've gotten tons of beautiful vintage pieces that just had a small stain or missing button. As for estate sales, a lot of them are run by a company that knows the value of what they're selling so they make sure their deals aren't too good. The ones that have shitty pictures, advertise via yard signs and are run by the deceased's family are gold though.

As you said, thrift stores in weirder areas are better. Basically the fewer young people shopping there the better. But why are you so sure the zoom zooms are rich lol? If they're out hustling chances are they're the ones who don't get a fat allowance. They are annoying little ayybros but upcycling is an environmental benefit so I can't really hate them. Let's not forget that the purpose of thrift stores is to supoort charities and employ the disadvantaged, not to make sure you can get cool finds.

So, I counted what I have in my closet, here's what I have:
>6 pairs of jeans, there's two pairs I barely wear anymore
>2 pairs of trousers that aren't jeans
>6 pairs of shorts but it's been a while since I wore any of them because I hate shaving and waxing my legs
>2 sweat shirts
>11 sweaters but I need to get rid of some of them because I've worn them too much. Maybe I'll use them as pyjamas though.
>9 blouses, but not all of them are my size so I should think about selling some of them
>17 tshirts, mostly graphic tshirts and crop tops so they don't look professional no matter what. I can't wear them at my job but they're great for summer though
>two basic black dresses for summer and a fancier one I bought when I was invited to a wedding, but I almost never wear them
>3 black blazers with very different cuts
>3 skirts I absolutely never wear
>one denim jacket, one leather jacket, one army jacket, one cute jacket for when it's rainy and a really worn out coat I need to replace soon
>1 pair of sandals, 2 pairs of high heel boots, 1 pair of really ugly flat boots, 4 pairs of sneakers

I plan on giving some clothes I didn't count here to some stores that can give me coupons so I can buy new clothes for less. I also made myself a list of things I should get to complete my wardrobe. Most of what I have looks very basic and I'd say half of the things I have are at least 5 years old. Would you say I have more than enough clothes or I could buy more stuff?

>idk why you say you have little clothes when you have 17?! Shirts.
I knew I had a lot of tshirts compared to the rest but I didn't notice it was that much, I'm surprised too tbh. I accumulated them over the past 10 years because my size never really changed and on top of that there are some tshirts I completely forgot about and only found them recently hidden in my closet because I didn't put them where they should have been. On top of that I usually grab the first things I can get in my room so there are tshirts I like and wear way more than others so I thought I had like what, 10 tshirts maybe?

I feel like I should redo that list once I get rid of all the clothes I don't want to keep and once I bought things I'd like to wear more often.

No. 205715

It depends on how often you do laundry. I have two weeks worth of clothes because I go to a laundromat.

No. 205731

If you have a lot of clothes that you don't like, get rid of them and get something you like (and think you will continue to like in the future. There's no right amount of clothes to own, but generally, you want enough that you have something clean to wear for any occasion you regularly encounter. You also want to make sure you have few enough clothes that you can easily find the outfit you want to wear.

No. 205750

I say, make a selection of everything you have and want to continue wearing (so leave out the stuff that's worn out or simply not your taste anymore etc.) and fits in your lifestyle. Then decide how much you think you need to comfortably dress everyday without getting into a pinch because all your good clothes are in the laundry basket.

How do you get black clothes back to black after they come out of the washing machine covered in all those white bits? It looks like tiny white bits of fabric idk I hope you all know what I mean. Is there some magic super sticky lint roller or what? Also washing blacks seperately to prevent it doesn't seem to help so I'd really like to know how to restore them

No. 205929

that sounds like too much detergent/detergent buildup to me. Try using a liquid detergent if you're not already and use less than normal. Also grab some white vinegar and use a cup of that as a fabric softener/to help dissolve any remaining bits of crap on the clothes. It could also be lint buildup from your washing machine so check that the filter is clean and that the drum doesn't have bits of lint left in it after a load.

It's pretty easy to get a good sewing machine for little money or for free. I see them every now and then at thrift/second handstores I visit for like 20-25 euro.

Yesterday I went shopping and I wanted to buy a pair of skinny black jeans, something as basic as possible, and no matter what I tried everything was either too small but the size right above was way too big, too big despite trying the smallest size available, or the legs were too long while the jeans were too tight around the waist. I hate the fashion industry so fucking much. And because of covid some stores can't let anyone use their changing rooms anymore, and if I order clothes online I'm worried I'll get a wrong size and I'll have to pay to ship clothes back. On the other hand I noticed I have an easier time finding tops my size, mostly because I can finally find bralettes my size that aren't made for 10 years old girls so I don't have to just wear completely opaque clothes anymore, and it's easier to find tops with normal collars.

Sewing machines after 1950 started being made with plastic parts instead of metal (there's a couple brands that still use metal today but they're pretty expensive even secondhand since they last a long time). The older machines you'll find at thrift stores will be plastic parts usually but better to get one for $20 and it lasts a year then get that same one for $200 and it lasts the same amount of time. Try to make sure it works before you buy it though as its very unlikely someone will be willing to service a machine with plastic parts.

eh probably unpopular opinion but I feel like whether you can pull of larme kei is mostly dependent on your body type.

the jojo image reminded me that clothes in bright neon colours look really good when they're paired with neutrals, kind of like an accent colour

khaki, neon lime green, and white together kinda make me think of tennis, but it's still a solid color combo and you could play up the preppy vibe with a blazer and a pleated skirt in light neutrals or something along those lines. or, depending on the fit of the top, you could go for a more edgy, Y2K-revival fit like your idea with the wide-leg jeans or some other wide-leg trousers made of a more structured material and chunky platforms/sneakers. i'm not sure about pairing it with purple, though if you want to go that route you could look at 60's mod fashion like picrel for inspo (ignore the filename lel)

No. 209378

your best bet is going to a department store like macys or saks. $150 is kind of low for a coat and shoes, you can easily get a nice dress for $50 but the coat and shoes will be the most expensive part of the outfit. I've gotten nice coats at target before but I'm not in the US anymore so I can't speak for the selection now. Check out TJ Maxx or Marshall's too - the only thing with these stores is that you arent guaranteed to find anything, expect to leave empty handed.

I would suggest that you go into a physical store to at least try on different kinds of dresses to see what you like to wear. You dont have to buy anything, you can try on some different things and then go home and order something similar online.

also if you aren't used to wearing heels, def don't choose this occasion to be your newest attempt at it. just get something comfortable.

No. 209387

I would suggest getting something extremely neutral and basic but nice. Try Banana Republic or Ann Taylor sales. If you don’t have to dress up often you should buy something you can keep in your closet for any “upscale” occasion in the future. Don’t try to make a fashion statement if you’re not comfortable, just dress nice enough for the occasion so you’re comfortable in the setting. A very basic neutral (some anons might say boring) is fine!

all my examples are from downton abbey but the costuming is fantastic so. 20s is all about breezy fabrics, pleats, and embroidery. look for beading, sequins, embellishments and choose fits that are loose on your frame. the fashion of the era was all about that long drop waist torso, the body silhouette was long and slim, tall and boyish. no hourglass waists here - that's what your grandma wore. lots of eastern influence on the fabrics and colors of the time, deep red, navy, drapery. a little bit of military influence as well here and there, especially on hats and gloves. big shoulders.

No. 210040

Kek are you an oldfag or did you thrift that shirt? I'm an oldfag and remember when those prints were popular. I think you should go for a pant with a looser leg fit because the skinny is a pretty dated look, and try tops that aren't so long because the length of the top is making you look a bit stumpy even though you're tall (neckline and sleeve length are fine tho). Try looking for tops that sit around your waist or top of your hips. I think midi dresses would look nice on you too. It's hard to infer your style from just one pic but I think a midi dress or midi skirt with some pleating would look pretty on your figure.

No. 210042

I'm in my mid 20's and have had these jeans for over 5 years at this point. Honestly don't care about current trends but I'll keep my eyes out for looser fit jeans. Only downside about shirts is all of my tallgirl ones are sooo long on me it's bullshit.

I agree with some of the other anons here. Tucking in your shirt will help make your legs look longer and give you a defined waist.

Before you try and completely redo your wardrobe, I always think it's good to make use of what you have. Try layering an oversize flannel or denim jacket over a t-shirt and pair it with bottoms of your choice, as long as you don't match the color of your jacket to the color of your bottoms you'll be fine. It might help you get a sense of what sort of style you'd like to follow. Picrel is an example of a way to wear a graphic tee that's a little more exciting than just jeans, but it may not be your style.

You should try picking shirts that are more your size and not as long or loose fitting, because like the other anon said it makes you look kind of stumpy. If you want, you can invest in some fabric scissors and try trimming some of the shirts you have (follow a tutorial online). Also you mentioned your jeans are 5 years old, you should probably invest in some new, higher quality ones. I recommend getting something without a print or pattern on it (like regular old denim) so you can match it with your tops better.
You should wear safety shorts or leggings underneath so your whole ass isn't out. If you still feel uncomfortable maybe try skirts with longer cuts.

Go with flared jeans if that's what looks good on your body type but try not to get caught up in trends too much, trends are fleeting after all.

It's better to opt for whatever fit is most flattering on your body type.

IATA who said skinnies were dated and I didn't mean to imply that nonny should go with what's trendy. Skinnies were really trendy back then and nearly everyone wore them even though they aren't flattering on most women. I agree she should focus on how it works with her figure plus how comfortable she feels in them rather than what's in style. Thankfully different leg cuts are always available no matter what's on trend. The rise gets more complicated since most brands are stuck on high rises atm, but being tall she has the benefit of any rise working for her.

The easiest way to know at a glance if AE is the copy or the original, even if you can't feel the quality of the original garment, is to look at the number of items available to purchase in the other shop. PP has a massive active inventory and affordable prices (tho not cheap as AE). They don't design and produce all those different SKUs for a season or two and then it all happens to get replicated by AE. They order a shitload of products and then sell them at a markup. Smarter and bigger brands like PP, as opposed to low scale dropshippers, will eat the cost of shipping to their warehouse before shipping items out to their customers to avoid long wait times that are a tell-tale sign of drop shipping, and take their own photos of the products on models. They can make the money back because of their huge margins and because they don't work with any designers. You're not at fault for being on the fence because they go to lengths to make it appear legit knowing that most people don't know or consider how hard it is to fill up a store to that capacity if what you're selling is original.

Skinny jeans were also worn by those of us who are short and didn't want the cuffs of jeans inevitably dragging under our heels as we walked home from school, only to get torn up and ratty.

C is nearly optimal imo, assuming you have a small band size. It's big enough to fill your clothes out without getting completely sized out. As another F cup I just can't buy things with designated space for tits. Unfortunately all clothes are not going to fit all people.

I feel the same but in an even more schizo way, sometimes I think that I can predict trends because I will be like
>Geez, These skirts are cool, but what if skirts could be longer.
And then long skirts are in and everyone wears them.
Tbh, it’s possible that if you wear something interesting, others will want to try stuff from your style, I mean, that’s how basically everything evolves.
And sometimes it’s just that when the market is over saturated with some stuff, the clients will want something new, usually completely different from what’s in store, so it isn’t really predictions but just being fickle about clothes and styles, I guess.

No. 211900

It's probably just bias. Especially nowadays there's a ton of short-lived microtrends happening so for every trend that feels like you personally predicted/started it there's probably 10 others that aren't your thing.
I kind of had the same feeling before though, like I was suddenly really into berets and cargo pants and platform boots seconds before these suddenly became super trendy. It's obviously just a coincidence and these are fairly generic articles of clothing, and there's plenty of stuff I'm really into that didn't turn popular at all.

Where can I find inspirations for a more fit for work and mature goth style? I'm getting older (mid 20s) and I always loved the style but never had the money. Now I have the money but I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing average goth stuff outside since I'm not a teen anymore and an introvert.

Hiya anons, lately i've been trying to incorporate softer designs into my wardrobe and would appreciate some advice.

My usual style tends to fluctuate between romantic goth and vampire goth, however, much of the fashion, hairstyles and makeup tend to be rather dramatic, i really like this dramatism but i don't think it fits my frame or face, i've come to the conclusion that most of it makes me look like a toddler that ransacked their moms stuff.

I don't really want to change my style completely, but i would like to find a way to make it softer, any advice?

Picrel is a reference on how i usually dress:

Thank you for your answers! I'm turning 27 next year and work as a designer, so I can wear casual clothes as long as they aren't over the top.

I don't see what's wrong with "2014 vibes". A cute dress is a cute dress (or you think it's ugly, that's also okay). But to disregard a piece of perfectly wearable clothing that is in mint condition you put your hard earned money towards because it's too this or that year is stupid imo.

I really like chains and dress more “hardcore” but I don’t like BDSM or kink shit, in fact I’m against it, but I’m semi worried that buying a bag like this will make degenerate men think I’m into kink shit. Is this bear even wearing “bondage”? Am I just naive?

No. 211992

Bear looks like it’s wearing bondage but you could always use it as a plush and not a purse

Thanks anon! Gotta prove to my parents that it wasn't a phase.

I don't know if i'll be of any help because most of my wardrobe either comes from local shops, stuff i found and altered or straight up made from scratch. However, three places i do buy from relatively often are PunkRave for general clothing and Fantasmagoria and Etsy for accessories (i think Etsy could also work for clothing but you'd have to comb through pages and pages of generic stuff). All can be fairly hit or miss for me but are basically the only places i consistently go back to.

The best advise i could really give is that if you have the time and the means you should try to learn how to sew, it really helps when you want a specific thing but can't find anything satisfactory.

Idk where you're getting the shirt aspect this still looks like a jacket to me albeit a really thin one. Possibly fake leather due to the wrinkly crappy quality. It's got sort of a peplum going on so try "faux leather peplum jacket." Personally I think picrel is a much better attempt at this sort of look (older Forever 21 design).

I bought a hoodie on an online secondhand marketplace that was labeled 'vintage'. It just arrived and I unpacked it to find the most shitty, flimsy piece of shit I've ever seen. The material is shiny and feels like plastic or thin Chinese costume fabric. So after looking inside I see it's from Shein. I had never seen any Shein item irl before (they're not popular/easily accessible in my country) and I'm baffled that this is supposed to be the ultra trendy fast fashion brand I've seen so many people mention online. Like, I expected it to be bad quality but not to this extent.

No. 212604

can I suggest boycotting this fucking company? I ordered from them last year, Oct 2020. Immediately after the items arrived, I had to have emergency surgery. Was in hospital for almost three weeks. As soon as I get back, I realize I can't try the bottoms on (abdominal laparotomy) so I keep the dress and top and tell my partner to take the rest back asap. The first thing I thought about while barely able to walk was this fucking package, you know, and the notorious strict 30d return policy.

Well this piece of shit company counts 30d from shipping confirmation, not delivery confirmation, what a joke. So I missed the deadline by ONE DAY. I am fucked up on painkillers and so my bf chats to customer service, tells them I have documentation of being hospitalized and need to return or exchange these things. He seems to get a grudging "ok, wait for our email" reply after emphasizing all of this. Next business day, an email: fuck you, you can't return shit.

That's the customer service you get when you miss the return window by one day during a covid lockdown and with undeniable proof of being hospitalized for the entire span of time you had the items. Fuck Zara and their fast fashion.

Any advice on passing for a normal person, appearance-wise?
I'm not hopeless, I dress decently, I sew my own dresses time to time, but my default is very baggy tshirt-leggings-boots and I'm trying to see if changing my outward daily look actually makes a difference that drastically.
I'm covering the pink in my hair this week with a dark brown that matches my roots and aiming specifically for that realm of "Prima your mom always brings up at parties that's doing better than you on Instagram but all the cousins know she's actually a fucking deviant" (mexican american Normie, I guess? The Insurance/Tmobile Manager Normcore?)
I don't particularly feel bad about my appearance, but like I said, curious if it makes any tangible difference to look like that or if it's all bs.

Is it hopeless trying to wear non-fitted clothing when you have a strongly hourglass figure? I know I will never be a cute, tiny, waifish model but I'm a normal weight, is there really no escaping the Billie Eilish effect for women with wider hips? Pic rel is how I feel wearing anything that isn't skin tight. I'm not even talking oversized… just wearing a medium sweatshirt/shirt/cardigan makes me look like a this unironically.

No. 213237

I recommend getting baggy tops that hit at your lower waist or mid waist and if you like baggy jeans/pants, getting a slim fitting waist with wide legs. This works with mid rise and high rise. I wear mainly baggy clothes and am hourglass with small boobs, and this is what I do to pull it off in a way where I don't feel like I'm wearing a tent. I'm pretty slim and if I don't follow these rules I look mildly obese lmao. Getting oversized crop sweaters and shirts, or men sized and cropping/hemming yourself, works great. It doesn't even have to show skin if it hits your mid waist! I also like mixing it up with a semi-slim/slim fit top or bottom with a baggy piece.

No. 213249

Do you have large shoulders/arms anon? If you aren't overexaggerating and actually do have a strong hourglass you shouldn't look like a fat man when you don't wear skin tight things.

So it's been really fucking freezing here lately, like in the single digits farhenheit. I finally decided it was time to get an actual winter coat, so I went to Burlington because every time I have bought an expensive coat from a department store it never lasts and usually isn't very warm anyway. I found a pretty cute pink coat, it's also reversible and black on the inside. I bought the next size up to be more comfortable and because the arms are kind of short but now I regret it. I feel like it makes me look gigantic, which I guess is kind of unavoidable with this kind of coat but it's even bigger than I need it to be. It has drawstrings but still. If it was a regular store I would just try to exchange it but I'm not sure about Burlington's policies on that kind of thing since their clothes are discounted and from other retailers. Also I brought it into my house so it might already have dog and cat fur smell on it (I can't smell it but I think people who are allergic to it can)

I want a really wearable floral dress but am worried about coming off as overly basic. Does this give off mommy blogger vibes? Are puffy sleeves kind of dated at this point? Help me nonnies

No. 214219

If you like these dresses, skip every polyester one you come across, including blends. It looks cheap and that screams mommy blogger.
larger prints look better than a ditsy floral or geometric.
Get one that’s about one size too large and have it tailored. Nothing looks better than a dress that perfectly fits the bust and hips.
Try to style it with anything other than the uniform of brown knee-boots and various knits over the top.

op here, definitely not going for matronly lol. Here’s the same dress with less soft styling. It’s actually all cotton but I agree that it looks a little synthetic. I think the shape has a nice 80’s french vibe, I’m mostly worried that puffy sleeves are passe

i don't like the puff sleeves personally. if it were a cute skater dress or even more fitted sleeves i would say go for it. as it is, the shape is not super flattering. do you like the shape or the pattern more?

No. 214614

Damn y’all must think matronly is like, an apron and a Gibson girl hairdo.
It’s essentially a smock with a keyhole at the neck. Unless you lengthen the skirt you’re not gonna get more matronly. Matron isn’t always a terrible or ugly thing.

I often walk the line of looking too autistic (not anything like the style you're describing) and I find that mixing some elements of the style you really enjoy with some more modern elements helps to update the look and make it work. Also, simplifying down and choosing one main piece as the draw to your outfit. For example, wearing a bright patterned blouse with some simple pants and chunky heels that are very "in" right now. The patterned top being bright and kawaii as you like.

doesn't look made quite right compared to the model photo tbh. for example in the model photo the keyhole at the neck is about an inch wide at the top, while on yours it's too narrow to see your skin through at all. plus what other anons said about the short shoulder straps & crooked belt.

none of this is that noticeable if you wear it though, since its not like anyone else has seen what it's "supposed" to look like.

go for the black dress. as others said the one you got doesnt seem to have the same shape as the model and the top/keyhole looks very poorly fitting. it's not your fault tho. just remember to not buy stuff online that's meant to be super form fitting like that, always get in-store so you can try it on.

No. 214899

That's a lovely color on you but I think the fit isn't right. The belt area shouldn't sit so high. Getting a size up and tailoring it would probably solve the issue but I also don't think anyone would notice it looking off without seeing the model comparison.

>without looking like a costume
It's going to be hard then. Before the recent popularity of corsets I bought my clothes exclusively from larp shops. White bardot/milkmaid tops and square necklines are in and easily accessible; it gives a peasant like silhouette and you can pair it with a bodice corset. I think dressing this way will always look like larp/costume no matter the quality of the clothing item. I can only think of the etsy shop Hearts And Found which makes princess-like dresses that don't look too larpish, they also all come with huge pockets and the size and the lenght can be custom made. The good looking bodices are incredibly expensive though (around 200-300), here's my etsy shops list

Under 100 bucks:
>HedonisticCostumes (chemises and bodices) >ValRok (bodices and clothes)
>RoyalTailor (some of their bodices are under 100)

>HeartsAndFound (modern princess dresses)
>Little Women Atelier (pretty linen dresses)

nona said not like a costume….it is a hard question, but maybe if you used to literally only shop at larp stores this isn't advice you should be trying to give…?

idk why but picrel was my first thought - a sumptuous thick wool large tartan poncho looks regal & rural at once, but it also isn't out-of-place enough to read as a larp. DON'T buy a cheapo one from amazon/walmart/aliexpress as it will be thin, thready, and cheap looking. its got to be sumptuously thick wool to look royal.

My style takes a variety of alt influences, but my main priority is not looking too costumey. My biggest tip is that it's all in the accessories, like belts and chokers and shoes, because they can change up a look easily. Otherwise, just having a variety of black/muted colored basic pieces is a great place to start. If you're going for a more specific look, like romantic goth vs more of a 2021 grunge look, keep the differences in mind.

Killstar is kind of the classic alt store but I find that a lot of their stuff just looks too costumey for daily wear. Just look at a couple of listicles and shop around on the pages to see if they have things you like. Personally, Disturbia is one of my favorite clothing shops right now.

if you're into goth you'd be better off with thrift stores. weirdly enough goth clothing from expensive stores tend to have shit quality. hell even ebay has better quality vintage clothes sometimes. and imo the stores that try too hard to sell themselves as goth or alt in general tend to have that costumey look compared to things put together from various regular stores.

No. 216439

Ignore other anon and skip overpriced fast fashion brands like dolls kill/kill star they’re trash items not worth half what they charge. Like over a hundred bucks for plastic renamed “vegan leather” and polyester as if it’s a premium material.

Thrifting will yield excellent blouses and skirts that have been handed down by old goths, and there’s always nice quality fabrics amongst the polyester shit. Try to avoid wearing the cheap metal accessories, they’re usually costume jewellery quality and will turn your skin green where it rubs.

Dark mori could be decent inspo for A slightly more adult look instead of the very teenage kill star style.

Tip to be a winnar at thrift stores:
Absolutely no college towns (zoomers will suck it dry)
No thrifting in areas with any sort of “scene” or culture” or anything artsy (hipsters will suck it dry)
No overly poor areas (nothing but shitty fast fashion castoffs)

Look for a thrift store in a wealthy but extremely boring suburban neighborhood, or a high end shopping area, or, even better, a thrift store sitting right at the edge of a working class area but close to a high end area.
This is where I found my holy grail thrift store —a mile from a massive luxury shopping district, frequented only by working class families who have no interest in high end cult brands, vintage 1970s stuff AKA all the stuff I want. Replaced my wardrobe and furnished my whole apartment at this place.
Basically you’re looking for a thrift store where the wealthy but unlikely to buy secondhand donate their castoffs. It might take some searching but if you find one of these you’re set.
Take my tips and find your discount Shangri La nonnies, it is my gift to you.

Beautiful strategy nona. My college town was also a hipster hotspot and while the thrift shops were good for the odd statement piece, it was mostly fast fashion dregs. I’m back home in a smaller town with lots of old-money farmers in the surrounding area and my thrifting game has gone next level since coming back. The quality and longevity of my finds in small town vs city thrifts doesn’t even compare.

No. 216468

Ralph Lauren is awful quality Chinese garbage nowadays. It's never been stellar but now it's truly worse than ever. Look for old (emphasis on old) middle market stuff like Tommy Hilfiger, they have no resale value so people don't pick them dry to sell on eBay, but they still hold up because older garments were not made to be thrown out in a week.

Thanks for these tips anon, I've always wanted to make thrifting work but have had trouble finding decent stores. Everyone usually says go straight to the rich neighborhoods but as you said many of those are already popular and overpriced and/or picked over. I will try checking out the "boring" areas.

My secret tip is not regarding thrift stores per se but checking out estate sales. I've gotten some really nice wool/cashmere/real fur/natural fiber pieces from fashionable grannies that have kicked it, selling for a pittance because someone just wants to clear out all their relative's belongings.

No. 216725

The actual rich bitch brand is Hermes but if Ralph Lauren is shelling out to you… idk. It's possible to find older Hermes & Versace etc online for not that much, but it will take looking & patience.

Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren are like the same tier of nice-ish mall store. Like not even the most expensive store at most malls…? I'm confused why you would day this. Hilfiger has been a middle class mom brand since like… ever? Like it's preppy sure but it's far from actually rich.

Guys do you think I would look super manky if I went frizzy on purpose?
I know how to avoid friction, use protective styles, moisturise my hair and my hair is ‘under control now’ and curly. I remember though, a little younger I let it poof at school because ‘eh’ and some b word said it looked messy and made other people look at it. But I actually like the fluffy feeling, having it stand up on my shoulders like a cloud.

Can I brush-frizz it again, or will this damage my hair? Will it make me look unkempt, and are there cute ways to style this?

Under the knee suede boots and a brown aviator jacket. Ditch the belt though. I'd go for a funky scarf in orange tones, to make it more retro. If that isn't your jam, wear some chunkier jewelry in whatever color you like. Dainty stuff would get lost imo. If you wanna go basic, just throw on a leather jacket and ankle boots.

Another tip is, try to figure out when the best time to shop is. I used to go to a Goodwill that would be super picked over on Friday or Saturday but have lots of stuff Sunday especially earlier in the day. The weird part was Sunday was the color tag dollar day and was pretty busy, so you think it'd be really picked over. I guess they refreshed inventory on Sunday.

They're fine for workout clothes, but they're on their way out for everyday clothing.

I think the problem is that it's a skater skirt AND it's knee-length AND it's plain cotton AND it has a crew neck. It could have one or two of those and still look current, but the combination looks outdated. If you really like fit and flare I think this dress is cute.

I was also going to suggest this, a wrap dress, or a very toned down version of the selkie dress for anon. I agree that this stuff will look dated in 5-10 years, but that's just part of fashion.

Mixing metals or keeping them apart goes in and out of style. Personally I think wearing metals that flatter you (especially around the face) is more important in deciding whether or not you should mix metals. I also think you should just wear what you already have.

It's not really arbitrary but grounded in colour theory. Silver and white gold are cool, golds are various shades of warm. Mixing warm and cool is generally thought of as clashing/undesirable, although even the way that is perceived is trend-influenced.

I’ve gotten similarly thin plaid button downs from J.Crew Mercantile off Amazon. The fabric is paper thin but the hems are thick, so it may not have the same billowy effect.

You don't have to buy into kibbe, but he never says that naturals are ugly or unfeminine. The prime natural celebrities he listed in his book were Shirley Maclaine, Ingrid Bergman, and Lana Wood. Some of the modern celebrities he says are FNs are Anne Hathaway, Elle Fanning, and Jennifer Lawrence.

That's the weird thing, most average Romantics aren't that curvy, people like Marilyn and Beyonce are absolute outliers, Romantics are normal-ass women like Shaygnar or Lucinda, they're the typical small girl who can't find clothes her size, the curvy women are very often Naturals but people refuse to accept this because they're obssesed with Romantics. It's come to a point where FN women would get mistaken as Romantics because they were attractive or curvy, people still don't want to admit Doja Cat is an FN even thought Kibbe said she's far from being a Romantic or a narrow type, the same goes for Megan Thee Stallion, they all want to play dumb, they just want to see what they want to see.

Pesonally I think broadly speaking there's truth in the basis of his theory: it's flattering when the lines of your clothing match the lines of your body.

This makes sense and you can observe this being a grounded theory irl (i.e. overly frilly j-fashion stuff doesn't look good on a tall, broad woman - long, oversized clothes swallow up shapely petite women). Imo this is simply line and shape theory just like colour theory is real, you wouldn't call colour theory astrology-tier bullshit. But then he attempts to categorize the 3 billion women this earth has into what, 16? categories. And tries to over-detail his shit and that's where he goes really wrong in my opinion.

Nonnies, please tell me if there is a name for the style I'm envisioning. The clothing looks similar to current cottagecore, but it's much less revealing. Think: no bodices or exposed cleavage, but still light-colored not nice fabrics such as linen etc. The silhouette is more covered/modest like mori-kei, but less woods and more prairie/spring-themed.

I wish I could get more into cottage-core as it is, but I think it reveals more that I want to for myself. Dresses are slimmer and more 40's silhouette than I like.

But IDK, I don't feel like these could be labeled 'boho' because they don't feel as hippie or loud as some boho prints can get. And even from these examples, it's not the whole scope of what I'm envisioning. White isn't the only color and long dresses/skirts are not the only type of articles.

Depends on how it looks on your body, if it creates curve or is it just a flowing A line. Does it stop at your knees or cuts part of your calves etc.

It also depends what sort of a look your are going for, like you can add corset and blouse of any color that is on the skirt. You can also wear it with a simple (no patters) shirt or blouse with ruffles for more feminine look.

I personally only wear skirts of this cut with long boots, sadly this articular skirt doesn't jazz with winter outfit.

Do you mean your belly just sticks out a little while you still have a defined waist, or are you an apple shape?
If it's the former, skirts like pic related will emphasize your waist while hiding a stomach pouch. They can be short like in the pic or longer, but try to go for thicker or stiffer fabrics that will hold their shape easily. If it's the latter and you don't have a defined waist, go for baggier sweaters and shirts while showing a little more leg.

Structured longline bras do help but when I sit down I just get the same lumps but lower on my back where the band ends. I'm definitely not wearing a too tight band size either.
I hate how it looks but the only way around it that I found is either using a sports bra or not wearing a bra at all. Sports bras don't work with many necklines and I don't want to go braless all the time, especially since I'm pretty busty. Any ideas?

The outfits on the Nanny were cohesive and balanced, they were bold and colourful but they didn't have a bunch of clashing patterns and colours. Eg if she's wearing a patterned skirt, she has a plain top and vice versa.

Actually I don't totally hate >>219928, if the boots were a different colour and the top didn't have a pattern (or had a more subtle one) I would've thought it was cute. Mixing patterns is a thing and not inherently bad but they just didn't pull it off.

Anyway I want the fucking patchwork platforms in pic related, omg.

No. 219955

Nayrt and I'm not like a fashion blogger so this is a very surface level take but for me…The outfit is comprised of elements that aren't drawn together by ANYTHING. The only thread to go on in defense of this outfit (imo) is the silhouette is nice, but it falls apart when you consider the pieces. None of them work together to create a look that's more than the sum of its parts. No part of the outfit makes any other part look good or stand out. It's just noise.

Each of Fran's outfits had a good silhouette, accentuated her body, colors were bold but they weren't randomly picked, they either matched or were contrasting. Take the neon look in the middle. It's 'loud' with neon green, orange and pink but the colors go together and they match in tone and brightness. Each look clearly has a lot of thought behind it, all of the little details create a rounded out look with a distinct vibe. For example, the one with the patchwork platforms. The colors in the platforms are found in the skirt and the sweater. The prints give a cozy vibe put together with simple denim and knit. The skirt is tight so the top is looser. Platforms instead of boots accentuate her legs. On top of that, Emily's outfit literally looks like it's from Zara. I think the blazer and the top might be. The boots look awkward, skirt is too short, the different tones clash(warm yellow in the blazer, warm colors in the skirt vs cool toned boots). The prints aren't connected by anything, neither color nor pattern.

I bought a pair of bike shorts from VS Pink and I couldn't decide to get a medium or a small since I have lost some weight recently but then thought what if I gained it back or whatever. I eventually got a a size small and my mom is freaking out about it. It doesn't help she low-key thinks I have an eating disorder ugh.

Now I'm second guessing that I should have just gotten the medium cause it really was practically the same size when I held them up together to compare. I'm 5'6, and my waist is 27 and hips are just under 38. I don't know what size to buy for myself when my mom gets mad at me for buying smaller sizes and then I start to wonder well what if I gain weight so maybe I should just buy a size bigger??

black boots that only come up to the ankle and oversized tops that can be kinda tucked into the top would be my go to. the skirt looks kinda slim, so if you can bulk out the top of your outfit it should balance it and make it more interesting. you can make it more punky with docs and a black denim jacket, or more preppy with an oversized sweater and normal (more sleek) ankle boots

they are for me, and me alone. my waist is like right under my boobs. i'm 5 feet tall. my legs are 3 feet long. high waisted pants make me look like i have real legs and a nice butt. low waisted pants make me look like im trying to wear somebody else's pants and you always have to worry about plumber crack. maybe you zoomers just enjoy the novelty but i remember 2003 and having to hold my waistband up every time i squatted down to pick something up. enjoy not being able to wear real underwear i guess.

I thought they were pretty universally wearable? I rarely see people who look BAD in them. There's a lot of poorly designed high waisted pants out there that look unflattering but when you get the right ones for your shape they can really work.
I'm 5"5 and pretty skinny but i still have a belly pouch as most women do but when I wear pants I tend to wear ones similar to picrel (leg cut like the left, waist similar to the right)
What I like about these sorts of high waisted pants, apart from being loose, is that the pleats coming from the waist down the centre of each leg work to wrap around your leg nicer and create a more dynamic shape.

I was mildly attacked by >>220819 given I do, in fact, put on a bunch of thrift store shit that ages me by 30 years, kek. I look like an old lady in my 20's but I don't care! Take that nonnie!

Forgot to mention I was excluding jeans. I was specifically looking for mid rise pants and had no luck after browing all day, store after store. It's driving me nuts.
Who said anything about zoomers? I'm a millennial and I exclusively wear mid rise pants, and now that they're worn out, I can't find replacements. Enjoy the trend while it lasts, I guess.
Thanks for the informative post anon! I think you're right. My issue with high waisted pants is that they have to be perfectly tailored to be flattering on me, which is a huge pain when that's basically the only fit available where I live. I'm petite so I'm used to getting pants and dresses hemmed, but this seems difficult.

No. 221011

ahhh, yeah, getting things tailored to match your height is something else. Have you considered learning how to do it yourself? Would save a lot of time (and money). I'm on and off teaching myself how to sew, and it really does make a difference learning to take in your own clothing and alter it to suit you.

This might be kind of a strange question, but does anyone have experience buying boxers? I've seen some women swear they are more comfortable and better quality, and I lean tomboyish anyway, so I'd like to try buying some. I don't know how to shop for them, though, and sizing is an issue.

No. 221063

Hemming pants is insanely easy, especially if you're not picky about a slightly crooked seam. If you're too intimidated even by that or just don't want to buy a sewing machine, you can start with fusible tape. With tape you literally just pin your hem how you want it and then iron it.

No. 221332

Terrible quality, overpriced, often sells out then tells you after you paid. Their own brand stuff under "Dolls Kill" is literally just Leg Avenue and other cheap lingerie brands. Their stuff falls apart too, even shoes. The only thing I have that fared well and survived a year is my platform boots from Darker Wavs. Everything is rushed and cheapened, you can tell from design alone. Most of the clothes and shoes look okay posed but in motion they look hideous. Guaranteed to make you feel cool when you really just look like you're wearing Party City. You deserve better than that.

Dropped my pic, these are the boots. I bought them on sale during last year's Black Friday for less than this. They're okay but hard to walk in especially if you live in a hill filled place like San Francisco or Seattle. Neoprene sleeve scratches super easily so you have to wrap them in paper and then put them in the suede bag they ship it in when not worn.

No. 221336

I personally never gave a fuck about all the drama surrounding the owner, but it's not worth it. Most of the stuff isn't good quality and the things that are decent will be available directly from their own labels, sometimes on sale when DK is still charging full.

Can anyone give some recommendations on how to accrue an "early 2000's/mid 90's edgy hacker" wardrobe (for a lack of better phrasing)? I swear I'm not a troon kek.

I don't really know where to start, and I would appreciate any tips/recommendations!
if anons need to know body type, I would say I'm either a kibbe classic or natural. I'm pretty proportionate on the top and bottom. Clothes meant for skinny girls with small hips make me look matronly because of my hips, clothes meant for curvy girls makes me look weirdly immature because I'm not quite curvy enough to pull it off

That heavily depends on the pair of jeans you're trying, I can go to the same store, try on 3 pairs of similar high waisted jeans and one of them is guaranteed to make my butt into a pancake.
I'm pretty tall with wide hips and a decent butt and a good pair of wide legged high waisted jeans makes me look amazing.

i try to wear tighter clothes for my top and then looser clothes for bottoms, but when my clothes are tight, my ribs still make me look wide.

This is so perfect, I love this style so much. I don’t really get to dress like this a lot, so I don’t have a lot of practical advice really. However, when I do try to pull it off I try to keep the look sleek but still have a rough edge. I am very pear shaped, so I get the matronly thing, but I still like to wear straight skirts and tight pants even though its not cool looking (on me) and I look frumpy. I also like using sheer/fine mesh tops with this look. In the end I would say try to adapt any style you currently have, since that’s what a kool hackerr would do anyways.

I love the movie hackers A LOT and it can be a goldmine for inspiration. Cool jackets and certain fabrics can speak a lot, as well as certain accessories as well. Picrel is of kate libby, but you can take inspiration from any character because they all look amazing. I personally think lord nikon had some of the best outfits and is underrated. Also if you get really 90’s or overdesigned in-line roller blades you’re super set and no one will question you. Literally just bow down in prayer to this movie.

I feel like I can’t give any more good pointers but I’ll end with saying also look into old fruits magazines, old camera bags, old rollerskate gear (like wrist guards), chloma (interesting brand I just found out about, I use them for inspo.), and take notes from rave fashion of the 90’s and 00’s. I love gabber, pls one day wear a full shell suit, you got the shaved hair part down already. Also, you can use old tech as accessories, but I personally kind of find it cringe. Since you have a shaved head, you can pull a lot of this off easily, its a look hard to pull off with long hair. The makeup can be left simple like you do, or you can do fun touches (there’s a pic of kate with a thin blue stripe across her face, her look in the end of the movie, things like that). Go with the flow, and outfits that feel natural to you will look best. Let me live vicariously through you nonna kek.

I used to be a fakeboi and found that the most effective trick was layering. I'd wear a t shirt and then put a loose but stiff layer on top like a blazer or button down. Combined with a very tight sports bra I could look close to flat as a 32F.

The model doesn't have any tits either. I'm sure you'll look really nice in them nona.

I also think these type of shirts look better on small boobs but if you want you could try them with a push up bra.

I don't like or own these bracelets their known for but I've bought their other jewelery when they had discounts. If you really want one I would say go for it.
The quality is good, they're sturdy and do not feel flimsy at all. For example I have a ring that I've been wearing for about 4 years now and it still looks good imo, the rhinestones haven't fallen out either.
Lastly, I would suggest you wait for a sale. They usually have pre-holiday offers like 20% off, or a free charm or something. They could be having one before Valentines Day.

Noone asked but picrel what I bought last black friday.

Which Pandora ring did you get, Anon? How often do you clean it & do you use a cloth, water and soap etc? And did you get your ring in silver or in the gold/rosegold colour?

to be fair the original color has faded. it used to be rosegold but now it's less red, more yellow. I don't really mind as long as it doesn't turn grey or whatever which it shouldn't. Or maybe I just have low standards…

Most of the time I take it off when I wash my hands but sometimes I'm lazy and just leave it on. Have never actively cleaned it tho. Is that a thing?
I thought in general the less your jewellery gets in touch with water the better?

Anyways I can't speak for their silver because I haven't worn that on a daily basis. Not sure but can't you just polish out foggy silver?

No. 224254

I have a bracelet and charms in silver that got foggy reeeally quickly. Polishing them with a cloth works fine but both tge charms & bracelet aren't very shiny for long after polishing. I've even noticed marks from water which I guess is normal, but I wouldn't expect them to get foggy so quickly after being polished. Making me feel altogether skeptical about getting a ring, instead I just might invest in something else that I won't have to polish every 2 days

i got this gorgeous jacket online, but even with 4 different angles the model was posed to make it look normal-length. the jacket barely went under my boobs and was NOT advertised as a cropped fit. basically every jacket, sweater, top in general that i'm interested in seems to have a fucking crop. this shit looks so dumb.

I like to style them over turtleneck or crewneck shirts/sweaters and a skirt that's about the same level of flare as the mesh dress and a little bit longer than it.

Wear clothes and make-up (if you wear it) in colours that match your complexion. Everyone's skin can look good and healthy on them no matter how light or how dark, how sunless or tanned if they wear colours that fit their complexion. As a general rule, cool skin wears cool colours, neutral wears neutral, warm wears warm best. You can get even more specific by looking at how muted or bright/clear your skincolour is, but it gets a bit complicated for most people to recognize at that point. People who have a very light complexion (blonde or lightbrown hair, blue/green/grey eyes and a light skin colour) generally benefit from wearing light to midtone colours, definitely no darker than that. No blacks or dark jeweltones for your "pasty ass" skin, especially not near your face (because those colours accentuate imperfections and age/tire your face). This means a lot of skipping on buying cute clothes because they're in the wrong colours for you though and it takes a bit of practice to recognize the temperature of colours.

Anon, I bet you already look good. I’m tanned with olive skin and I wouldn’t mind being pasty-pale. It really gives you so much room to play with the colors and contrast them against your skin. Opt for jewel tones and black: deep emerald, deep maroon, rich navy. Copper yellow, soft pink, and tawny beige look really great on pale women, especially with deep red or rose-brown lipstick (I can not emphasize how gorgeous pale women look with 90s pink-brown lipstick; check out Marrakesh by MAC, Ziggie by Colourpop, and Pillow Talk Medium by Charlotte Tilbury. Also Korean brands like 3CE).

If you’re skinny like you said, go for a nice pair of high-waisted black skinny jeans. I’ve always said (even when they were in!) that skinny jeans only look good on really skinny women. They still do. Don’t fall for the oversized pants meme; that’s just another trend, and you want to invest in clothes that will look good on you for years (for your wallet’s sake). Crop tops and patchwork, witchy skirts are great as well. Late 1960s mod clothing would look good too, lots of the models were pale and thin.

Oh, and like >>226689 said: look at your veins. If they’re green, you’re warm-toned. If they’re blue, you’re cool-toned. If they’re neither, you’re neutral. I’m mostly warm but olive-skinned so I keep to deep hues: blacks and wine reds and olive greens. Your hair color also plays a role in this as well. For example, pale dirty blonde women always look great in beige and baby pink. Silver with blue hues as well always looks amazing against pale skin. Darker haired pale women look better in darker clothes because it creates a really nice contrast against their skin + matches with their hair, really brings out certain hues in their face.

Is there any semi-safe fashion community that isn't super salty towards or berating the posts of thin people? I'm thin with narrow hips and weird proportions (long arms and short legs–things I literally cannot change). I'm short and look stumpy if I wear the wrong garments or fit. Because of my limb length and my weight I have a lot of issues with sizing (because again, my hips are narrow as shit) but whenever I go to r/FemaleFashionAdvice (or r/ffajc, because these bitches don't talk shit directly to OP oftentimes) it's full of people who are seething and downright nasty towards women of a similar size who are looking for fit/sizing advice. Previously I've spent upwards of $70+ on alterations to fix a garment I really liked that was not available in my size and I prefer to avoid that. I also prefer fitting clothes because omg…I have large breasts(!). Not really, my cup size is large (I think wide-rooted breasts so my chest can look prominent in the wrong garment) but my boobs are not actually big and are deflated due to weight loss…but if I post my bra size in there the pitchforks would indefinitely come out.
I'm being more candid on here since it's anonymous, I'd try to obfuscate my actual size and situation to even post on there because every time a girl posts about being an XXS, there's an analogous post on r/ffacj that's making fun of her, filling in a bunch of blanks like "OMG IM SO DAINTY AND TINY AND SMOL NOTHING FITS" when the posts oftentimes are so tame. If it really triggers you that small and thin people have fitting issues then maybe you should lose some fucking weight jesus christ. When I have gone shopping in person at stores like Ann Taylor, BR, JCrew, which carry petite sizes, it's still hard to find my size. Yes, likely because I am American kek. I used to weigh more in high school and in my experience it's so much easier to find clothes as a size 2/4/6 than it is to be a 00/0 or anything smaller (inb4 someone claims that people this size are anorexic or underweight people are all eating disordered kek). Don't even get me started on thrifting and how disappointing that can be. If I could wear oversized clothes I would bc they look cute on other short and thin women but they make me look frumpy as hell due to my deflated and wide-rooted boobs that look bigger in bras.

Side note but I was curious to see if mine and other anons' suspicions were true, so picrel is a collage of a couple regular posters on there. Peep the fat white woman complaining about thin petite white women.

Oh god, STFU. People don't want to read shit from thin people because you all sound insufferable in this faux-apologetic, overly-polite and pre-defensive, I am a victim too but not like those other victims (NLOV, I'm coining it) way.

If you want advice about your weird proportions or whatever, just post measurements instead of all of the extra chatter. And no, there are no safe fashion communities. This is the internet.

No. 228544

Really sad but sometimes true, this 'reality' is great proof for scrotes who claim that women are all jealous of each other.
So where are the posts making fun of obese women by thinner women? Right, because everyone knows that we're all supposed to be sensitive about weight when around fat people yet it's fine to make fun of thin people simply stating their body measurements, proportions, etc for fit advice. I'm not mad about that either, but why the hell can't it go both ways? Why is it acceptable for them to constantly berate and downvote women who are having legitimate problems with clothes and fashion, if not also aesthetics and finding a suitable style, because we've got normal to underweight fat distribution?
If you think about it, you're mad because I'm hypersensitive to criticism, which is kind of understandable as it comes with viewing these communities that whiteknight "plus size" while disparaging shorter/thinner than normal women. Every time I posted there I constantly felt like I had to disparage myself to not be that "petite hourglass with a perfect BBL ass and perky boobs" that they always rant about.
But even that isn't enough. They're mad simply because I'm thin regardless of my saggy boobs, my broad shoulders, etc. Idk why it's so impossible for these women to understand that we're not fashion models and also women who also are negatively affected by beauty standards. When I was fatter my inverted triangle shape wasn't that bad but now that I'm slimmer it's much more pronounced. I just feel like people don't realize that there are negatives to having other types of bodies aside from being obese. Pretty sure being underweight also has health consequences too regardless if you're anorexic or not and some conditions (in my case psychiatric medication) are behind our weight as well, it's not just being genetically blessed.

I'm going down a rabbit hole at the moment and trying to find shades similar to the half tints you want.

We basically have the same body shape, down to the saggy boobs. I've no advice but I know how much it sucks. Proportions oftentimes matter more than weight, but there's no point in trying to explain that to people who haven't been under 150 pounds since middle school.

Help me find my style nonnies, I don't have an ounce of sense for this kind of stuff but I'm self-aware enough not to dress totally frumpy. I've been promoted at work and need to start dressing better. The closest fashion style I found that would fit me and wouldn't force me to compromise is healthgoth as I'm very into sports myself, own a lot of black and functional clothes, don't wear heels ever, dresses only on rare occasions. The edgy aspect is not really my thing tho I like the sleek black part of it.
I guess I'm just looking for some ideas what to search for. Like a toned-down more mature-looking version of healtgoth/sport style? When I try searching for "sporty casual" I get picrel which is not what I'm after. Do I just buy from expensive sports brands and get away with wearing all black and a simple hoodie with widely recognizable fancy logo? I work in sport business too, so it is kind of acceptable. Help a retard out.

No. 228644

Are you retarded anon? I literally just said that I have fit issues and want to ask questions about buying from brands that I don’t know carry my size. Whatever, you can’t win with people who assume that everyone is a pro-ana braggart and not just people who have fit issues. Especially in America KEK why is this so hard for people to understand? You realize that it’s not normal to be thin despite how skelly celebrities are? It’s more normal to be fat here if you’re an average person.

No. 228645

Glad you could relate, anon. It’s a struggle. Recently I got a Wacoal bra because I’m finally down to a DDD/DD cup and I think buying shallower and smaller cups helps with my boobs looking overly prominent. I used to wear the Freya Deco which is also shallower bra but it makes my boobs stand out a lot in comparison to Wacoal’s bras. The more they stand out, the more top heavy I look so…
Tbh I think they’re just insecure about women being skinny but especially with their ideal body types (bbl ass and perky big boobs). Even though my boobs are saggy and deflated it’s still a threat because I have a technically bigger cup size and these bitches are dumb and will jump to conclusions like “OMG THIS WAIFISH BIG BREASTED PETITE CHERIE IS SO TINY”. It happens to like every woman on FFA who mentions having a sizing issue no matter how you frame it to try to avoid the fatties making fun of your post.
I suspect sizing and shopping irl is worse for us in America because being fat is so normalized but I could be wrong.

that's just athleisure nonna.. why do you need your style to have a meme name? make a pinterest board and just start adding stuff to it that you like the look of, it will give you some more suggestions and you can fill it out. then just look at individual pieces in those outfits that you like and try to find them. I'm talking specific stuff like 'leather bomber jacket' or 'crop grey hoodie' or something.

No. 228667

Thanks for the tip, for some reason I never thought of looking up specific pieces. I figured people take inspiration from fashion tumblr blogs or something and I hoped there were more terms describing what I'm after so I can go look it up. Athleisure sounds just about right!

No. 228668

Health goth isn't just black athleisure. It was more of a tumblr meme than anything else tbh. Also, even though it's pretty far away from goth, I'd still expect a "health goth" to actually be into the goth subculture instead of wearing it as a costume. Just wear what you like and feel comfortable in. Not everything is a style or an aesthetic. Sometimes an outfit is just an outfit and doesn't need a special label.

>Being skinny is great and enviable
The only reason you think this way is because you're overweight and don't know how it feels to be skinny. Most thin people don't look glamorous but rather ill and have trouble finding clothes that fit them perfectly without tailoring. If seeing skinny people talk about their body, and struggles triggers you this much, either dont hang out where they are or lose weight. It's not healthy to get so offended by someone just because they're talking about their struggles with not being on the healthy range of bmi, whether you like it or not, it's the same as obese or overweight women complaining.

No. 228672

I'm not talking about healthy average thin that's in the healthy bmi range, I'm talking about women above the healthy bmi or so skinny they can't find clothing that fits them properly because their bodies aren't the norm, just like obese women's bodies.

then as you said those people should just fix their problems and gain weight, should be just as easy as losing it, right?

No. 228694

Gaining or losing weight isn't a short journey, people along that journey can ask for advice on clothing that fits their current bodytype or have reasons they can't gain weight such as metabolic issues, depression or more likely ED. Overeating and undereating are both ED that take long time to heal from so both overweight and underweight women of all body types should be able to ask about advice regarding their clothes and how they can hide or emphasize certain features without anyone being offended or for some reason thinking they're bragging.
Being fat is unhealthy. Being skinny is unhealthy. That doesn't mean those people shouldn't go out or try to look their best as they try to become healthier. Any woman whatever her weight or height is, can want to dress her best and shouldn't be brought down or mocked by other women because her issues are different than theirs.

Maybe this should be in the stupid questions thread, but I've had these for half a year and never wear them or want to break them in because they're just so damn uncomfortable. I know it's just because they aren't broken in yet, I have another pair I've had for years and they're super comfortable but I've worn them so much they have holes at the toes (don't ask me how). Could I put something on them to make them less stiff, bend them, put newspapers in them overnight or do I just have to get through the pain lol.

I really like things similar to mori kei, modest clothing like long skirts and cardigans, comfy babushka wear. But I'm tall and am built like a troon in some ways so I worry about looking overly frumpy. I feel like no clothes ever look good on me. Any advice for this?

No. 229045

File: 1644147002535.jpg (80.24 KB, 500x740, blouse.jpg)

I have a similar body type and style. I actually think mori kei adjacent styles with a bit less layering and decoration can look really good on our body type. Natural, soft, and fresh looks accentuate my femininity whilst anything too feminine looks out of place and accentuates my broadness. I tend to go for pieces with a gentle geometric structure whilst still being flowy. I used to wear very long, flowing cardigans but I find that shorter ones like the Achille cardigan from Sezane look better on me. Skirts generally look best when they're simple, straight, and fall just below the knee, rather than very long. Tops that hang loosely on my shoulders but still fit well without being shapeless look good, as do slightly more open necklines. Natural materials like wool, silk, and linen work well, and most knitwear looks good so long as it isn't too oversized. Most important thing is wearing clothes that fit properly. Oh also avoid too much layering which i guess is kind of integral to mori kei. lol. Pic kind of unrelated i just love the look, anyone know where to find a similar blouse.

Clothes that are tight around the waist and if you wanna get loose, do it from the hips down, preferably with long skirts.
Avoid anything that has volume around the waist, especially if it begins around the boob area, it will only make you feel frumpy and large. The sleeves can also have a bit of volume though, like frills and what not, sometimes it's even good to have it to balance out large hips if you're self conscious about it.

I have an issue and I desperately need help anons! I’m going on a blind date today (first date in 4 years) with two of my friends that are a couple and their friend. They all work high paying government jobs, and the mystery man apparently comes from a wealthy family. I’m more of a shitty punk retard that works like 5 part time jobs. I want to make a good impression and I don’t know wtf to wear. We’re going bowling and then playing some switch games, so it’s very casual. I’m also in the middle of losing weight (22lbs down 15 to go) and I’m 5’6 145lbs. My jeans are all too big and baggy but I’m not buying new clothes until I hit my goal weight. I was thinking a simple flannel dress with leggings or something. Most of my wardrobe is band shirts and sweatshirts and I dress mostly androgynous. I am so fucking nervous and having an absolute meltdown kek he’ll probably just be a typical gross scrote but on the off chance he isn’t I want to look good.

I am in a tiny EU country so there's not much to buy, and the only stores I enjoyed (like Miss Patina) were UK based. I thought of looking into Etsy too, don't want to step into AliExpress because I am too worried about the quality.
My problem with ordering online is that it ends up both being too small and too big for me, because I am a hourglass which leads to me only being able to buy basic blouses, t-shirts, stuff like that.
I also wish there was a way to remove UK out of country list whenever I click EU on Etsy…

I had an annie hall phase when I was 17. I found most stuff in charity and vintage shops. The 1970s male cut of trousers are flattering if you have a small waist. I also got old formal-military uniform trousers as they fit the same way, but it might depend on your country's uniform.
Miss Patina is a mix of Taobao/Aliexpress and their own designs. Just order things that have good photo reviews. The majority of Etsy is also resold Aliexpress.

Reddit tier suggestion. Thursday boot company and other similar brands may be good quality but they're ugly as shit.

I miss colour. Why are all clothes these days grey, brown, or beige. Even the "y2k revival" clothing is such a joke, nobody wore neutral tones back then. We live in ugly bland homes with white walls and grey floors(seriously, that grey laminate flooring that's so popular nowadays is ugly as fuck) and we wear boring frumpy clothing with no colour. No wonder people don't have any imagination these days, it's like our modern world is designed to be as under stimulating as possible. Even when clothing has colour it's always pastel or gray toned.

If I wasn't poor I'd pay for nicer brands with better colours, but even thrift stores have been picked over and only the ugly clothing is left.

I can't see in the image properly bc I'm on my phone, is it without buttons? Otherwise it looks similar to these type of masculine coats from Zara

No. 230491

Actually now that I'm looking at it, it's less structured and looser than the Zara coat, maybe search for oversize masculine coat?

I felt like this when I moved to central Europe. I would wear a red sweater or colored tights or a skirt with a watercolor abstract pattern, and I felt weird. Everyone was in black and beige boring stuff, except this 65yo woman professor, who had some pretty cool vintage skirt suits in candy colors. Too bad she styled them, well, like an older lady would.

It's hard to find color when stores aren't selling it, so I understand the issue. Pastels make me look yellow/green so I can't wear them. Sometimes I make a list of special things I would like to have, so I can keep an eye out for them. I also like to add color with tights or socks of various lengths. I'm guilty of having mostly basic shoes (brown, black, a dark red, running shoes, converse) though, I'm just awful at committing to colored shoes.

I really like the sheen and style of this Vanessa Mooney romper, but I hate that it's a romper. To me the bottom looks especially diaperish with this material and color. I wish it were a midi or mini dress. I'm not expecting to find my imaginary version of this, but can any nonnies recommend stores that sell clothes with a similar idk aesthetic I guess? (Not SheIn/AliExpress/etc)

No. 231604

the only reason I can do some brighter colors are using some gem-toned things I had from high school that I'm lucky to fit into after ten years. I had a lot of colors back then, including neons, but the reds/purples/blues/greens are easier to work into an adult setting. It's hard to find colored pieces that I like nowadays that also fit for an adult setting. I have so many cardigans/dresses/skirts/shirts from 5-10 years ago in good colors for me that also are appropriate lengths. Now it's honestly hard to find in stores. It pisses me off.

I am not fashionable at all but I have this really bright blue jacket I wear and I stand out so much and feel weird when I wear colors that aren't black or gray on my college campus. It's funny how it was weird to other people that I wore all black in high school but now it is the opposite. It's boring.

Last week I was buying a jumper for myself and i asked to see more colourful items since she was showing me just neutrals. First she said something like but what I'm offering is what's in now. I don't care about that so I tell her again to show me more vividly coloured items. Then she scoffs "well, if you wear color…" with a tone as if I want to drape myself in literal shit and leads me to it finally.
Well i got a nice green jumper, the colour got so many compliments when I wore it. People love to see colour. Fuck you and your trends, store lady

I'm no seamstress but wouldn't you be able to have it altered to a dress fairly easily? Like it's more or less just substracting some fabric rights?

Ugh yes I hate the beige nude neutral trends, they never looked good imo and just seemed boring and unimaginative. Colourful and patterned clothing always looks great even if it's a bit kooky or crazy, it gives people a lot more personality in my opinion.

Beige doesn't suit me personally. I have a nice hourglass shape, but beiges make me look shapeless for some reason.

I think color is in this season though? Not for the winter as much but this upcoming spring summer. I've seen a lot of super colorful cute stuff in fastfashion stores and runways but… I think the "classy" and "expensive" looking clothes tend to be dull and boring neutrals that are either beige, black, etc. I wanted to ask you anons where you shop? I see a lot of colorful stuff in the stores I go to, even for winter it's quite colorful.

Ayrt, the jumper I bought was from Gioroga. I know nothing about the brand, I bought it because it's Italian. Italian = quality in my mind.

I'm heavily considering buying a pair of air force just because I don't know what shoes to wear with a skirt/shorts.
I became so scared of wearing heels with skirt or shorts, it's a shame because it can really elevate an outfit on top of giving you cartoon tier long legs.
I wanted to wear white high waisted shorts and a polo-like crop top (wish it wasn't, but everything seems to be cropped these days) with block heeled sandals, but I can't do it kek. I wish I'd stop being so stuck up about it. I'm also the same when it comes to going braless, I have zero tits and could do it but I don't because I'm scared of scrotes reactions

I don't think heels are worth wearing but why are you scared of them?

No. 231750

I don't wear heels because they're uncomfortable, but I wear a lot of skirts. I mainly wear long flowy skirts and in the fall I'll pair them with a pair of boots or booties. In the summer I'll wear flats, I mainly go for ones with an ankle strap or something similar. Sneakers work well with them too if I just want something really casual. I'd like to buy a pair of loafers too, I think they'd look really cute with skirts. For shorts I usually wear sneakers or boots.

it just makes me look like a depressed clown personally, or like i'm wearing a costume. it feels like i'm larping as zooey whatsherface which is the opposite of my personality and who i hate.

No. 232016

Agree. And being pear shaped just emphasizes how dumb the bottom of a romper looks.
Yeah probably and I know alterations are not too expensive but I'm also kind of just looking for a similar style clothing too because I need to refresh my wardrobe. I've sized out of a lot of my clothes which I've worn for several years and I don't really know who makes such things in current year and don't prefer thrifting clothes.
