Thanks everyone for turning me on to the Corporette site. It's pretty helpful and a great resource. But many of the suits on the site are either too expensive for me, not my size or not quite right for my age. I have no figure. No curves at all. Think of a 13 year old boy. That's me. Ok, don't think too much of a 13 year old boy- I do have nice legs, thank you very much (at least my husband says I have nice legs...).
Also, I am fairly tall. Not a giant but I definately need a bigger inseam if I want to wear heels. And I'm not too trendy. I prefer classic looks. They look better one me and don't really go out of style. When I try to take on a trend I just look like I'm trying too hard and I'd rather my clothes just kinda blend in nicely with the surroundings and become an extention of me, not stand out like OMG SHE'S WEARING A RED FEATHER BOA (even if all the cool kids are doing it).
I prefer sleek lines, no unnecessary frills, long inseam and NO WRINKLES. I can't wear clothing that wrinkles easily, it's my biggest pet-peeve. But I can't seem to find the right suit in an affordable price range. I don't mind forking over money for a good quality suit, but I'm not about to drop $400 on just a suit jacket. I'm a recovering student, you know. I have to ease my way into spending money again.
The biggest problem is that my lack of curves makes me look like I am swimming in most suits- so I need a retailer that offers smaller sizes (rather than merely directing me to their juniors section).
So, I was hoping everyone could chime in with their favorite women's suit(brand/style). I need to go suit shopping after the bar exam- any special places I should look? If you are on the less-curvy side of the scale, like me, I would especially love to hear from you!
