I'm looking for a bit of advice. I'm just coming out of a 6 year relationship and I think it's about time I smartened up. Basically my ex picked everything that I wore. Sounds pretty sad I know but now that I'm no longer with her I'm a bit stuck when it comes to picking clothes.

I've lost about 42 lbs in weight over the past few months and I have another 14 more to go. I'm planning on splashing out a bit on clothes for my birthday that's coming up in a couple of months and I really don't know where to begin! God, that sounds sad lol!

I walked into a clothes shop a couple of weeks ago and I felt really out of place. I'm 33 but my wardrobe consists mainly of old hoodies and a couple of old jumpers. I fancy changing my hair style as well and going for a bit of a change but I don't know where to begin.

Has anybody else been in this situation and if so how did you handle it?
