Maybe it sounds kind of "middle ages" of me to say that, but I don't want to make an unnecessary burden for him (although I think he'd love
the results!), and I just generally feel guilty about spending so much money on myself. My friend is also ten years younger than me, so of course, anything looks great on her, right?
You guys have offered such great advice. I think I will just try to buy maybe one thing here or there, classic styled to fit my body type, and just build on that.
Mama Bear, I hadn't heard of that company before, and when I went to their website, I really liked their clothes--just what I've been looking for! I'll have to check out the stores you guys mentioned, too. When it comes to jewelry, I have no problem with accessorizing and knowing what compliments what, but for whatever reason, with clothes, I'm some kind of fashion disaster, especially with my shoes! nikic, I'm a confessed "purse-o-phile", so I don't have a problem with finding the right bag and I shouldn't be enabled or encouraged to get more (and I can just knit what I want, right?
) Thanks everybody for being so helpful and being so great!!!!
