Your Colour and Style Questions Answered on Video: 106

6.08 My biggest challenge is I don't have a size that works for me on a regular basis. I'm 68 and retired. I spent my last 30 years of work as the assistant to the registrar at a Community College. I had a professional wardrobe, and dressed sharp every day. When I retired 7 years ago, I gave away my "work clothes" to a women's shelter. I pictured myself in athletic wear, for the duration. Then, 6 months after retiring, I got breast cancer. That was an experience that took me to the brink and back. That was 6 years ago. That experience aged me, and I'm trying hard to do everything right to prevent a recurrence. Now, I have a disconnect with how I look on the outside and how I feel on the inside. My belly has gotten soft and I can't even hold it in. I have an "H" shape and back flab. I don't enjoy shopping for clothes because when I try on jeans, for instance, they fit great everywhere, but I can't zip them up. If I buy ones I can zip, they look horrible and unflattering everywhere else. I really want a casual wardrobe that includes jeans, shirts, sweaters, etc. Can you help me? I don't know where or how to start. When I worked, I had a wardrobe based around neutrals, mainly, that I could change up with a cardigan, blazer, scarf, etc.
