I feel frumpy + Need help!

Actually, I am frumpy. Mostly because I'm too poor to redo my whole wardrobe, I'm chunky, and I'm lazy.

 

Most of the time, I'm okay with this, because I can throw on a bpal tee, cute pants, and cute shoes, and feel better about myself, and the hubby loves me for me...

 

But it's been bothering me more lately.

 

Partly because we have Todd's cousin's wedding to go to in June, and I don't want to look like the frumpy wife - I want to look like the semi-hot newlywed.

 

Alas, I have no close girlfriends, and the girl who I'm the closest friends with is even more frumpy than I am.

 

And I don't trust my own judgement - I picked out an outfit for my dad's wedding last June, and looking at the pictures afterwards made me cringe since I looked terribly fat and unattractive :biggrin:

 

So, now I have about 6 weeks to find an outfit for the wedding in June, and I'm afraid I'll look like crap again.

 

And don't get me started on my hair - that's been bugging me too.

 

Any help/advice would be appreciated - I love a new hair cut, but I've been burned by haircuts before, and have no idea what would look good on me. And obviously my taste in clothes is not the best.

greetings from another frumpette feeling person:))) I have a feeling we are not truly frumpy;my guess is that the truly frumpscious have no idea that they are so; we who are so conscious of it probably are style vixens(in someones eyes. I know that my wardrobe could use updating, and I have become chunkier since last year. Just today I am starting to go through closet and get rid of anything that doesnt make me spiffy. Perhaps we could be on what not to wear!!!!!!:wub2:

 

As far as haircut,I go to a beauty school,because I really like the enthusiasm and cheap prices of the stylists-Ive found really no difference between the school haircuts(99% of time) and higher priced snotty hair salons.

 

How about going to a beauty school to get a facial and or massage; THEN go into a store you like and try something different on!BTW-a friend of mine always used to get one outfit each year that she had to fight with herself to get(ie something she would not normally wear)and invariably found she got many compliments on it!

then again,perhaps I should take my own advice!Anyway, dont worry-your hubby loves you-and I think Ive seen pics of you-you non frumpy person!!!!!!!!! :wub2:

What do you think your best assets are? do you like your legs, or your eyes. I always wear blue when I want to feel good cause it brings out my eyes. Try that... or wear heels and a skirt to play up your legs.

 

Play up what you like, and try on things you would NEVER try. Also ask the store clerks,or other people at the store..trust me they won't mind and it helps to get someone else's opinion.

 

Go to a makeup counter or a sephora and get them to do your makeup. Watch HOW they do it, and then try to do it yourself. It might take a few trys but great makeup can turn something simple into not so simple.

 

Also a friend takes a digital camera with her to the store and takes a picture of everything she trys on... so you can see what it looks like in the picture BEFORE you buy it.

Well, I would have to say my eyes - I used to say my legs would be up there, but they have gotten chunky on me :wub2:
