While I'm not in a position to make any major expenditures at this point in time, I am currently looking at what it would take to overhaul my wardrobe to a pantsless state. This post
is totally inspirational and, well. Pants and my figure really don't get along. I have wide hips, a high and very short waist, and no ass. Nobody cuts pants to fit me properly.
Plus, I really like wearing skirts. Part of this is that most of my pants have died terrible deaths and haven't been arsed to go replace them, but I find myself drawn to skirts by preference. I do plan to buy a pair or two of comfy jeans to have around; I'm sure there will be days I just want to slouch around in jeans. But I think explicitly going pantsless on the whole would make me like my wardrobe a lot better.
So, I am looking at skirts and leggings and dresses! Got any suggestions for your favourite places to find those? Online and off! Admittedly, phoenix metro would be good to stick to for offline suggestions. *g*
The looks I am kind of going for are going to be punk professional on the dressy end and geeky business casual with a punk edge for the casual end. Definitely planning to layer a lot, using tissue tees under fitted tees, so I can be warm in the winter. (Shut up, non-locals! Seriously. I do not want to hear it; I get cold during the winter here, and you can just shut up. )
I'm planning to hit up My Sister's Closet/Attic and other thrift stores, as well as shopping online for things. I really, really hate full-length tights, so I'm interested in thigh-high tights and knee-high socks both. Thicker leggings, too, definitely. And *dresses*.
Anyway! We'll see how this goes. I'm going to have to dig through my closet and weed things out; stuff I'm not wearing anyway needs to go. And it's something I can work on right now.
