Newly Single And In Need Of An Outfit!
I've spent most of the day reading through this site learning a lot of things I didn't put much thought into before, and realised that I really had no idea in the past!
Now I'm hoping you can help me out with a bit of a dilemna.
I have just found myself single again after being in a long term relationship, and am now out on a mission to restyle myself so I better reflect my personality.
As a person I am quite a quiet type, but confident. I am a big fan of brit rock and indie music, whilst being a little bit geeky (I develop videogames as a second job...). My issue is, I have a habit of struggling to work out what works on me. I am 6'-6'1 ish, very slim with ungainly long arms. Finding stuff that fits is an issue.
My current favourite items are a beige pair of skinny topman chino's, my biggest complaint about them is they are more of a jeans style than a true chino. and a brown Merino Wool Mark Law cardigan, which fits like a dream.
Now my biggest problem I have is that this Saturday I have a work do in the evening. It is doesn't have a dress code, some are going fairly casual, others are pulling out all the stops. I am wanting to go fairly smart, but not OTT. There are going to be a lot of senior management at this do, and I'm working my way up within the company so want to make an impression.
The biggest part of it though, is my ex will be there, with the guy she left me for. Now I know this guy has no fashion sense, and I'd just like to make a bit of a statement. :D
If anyone can help make any suggestions, or suggest some items on a very reasonable budget i'd appreciate it!
