Right, well I'm off to university soon probably and am looking to buy some new clothes. I'm about a size 12/14 and am trying to lose some weight. Right now I don't have very many clothes at all and am looking for pretty much a new wardrobe. I vary my style quite often. I particularly like punky/grebby stuff but also a bit of sheek/glammer. I'm not much into the style of skinnies/shirts/waist belts and dislike gladiators though. I would like to create a unique/individual/quirkly yet versatile style. Anybody got any tips or ideas? Thanks a lot!

You sound a bit like me to be honest. I'm a fan of lots of different things but always like to add a hard edge to my outfits - be it with big boots, studded leather, a tux jacket, etc.
Whilst it sounds pretty obvious, the best way is to shop around and try on things you like. Zara and H&M are my favourite shops right now as they do such variety and you can get some really well-priced stuff in there. Topshop's good for fashion-forward, catwalk trends and Urban Outfitters does some quirky things (though I've gone off them as of late). AllSaints is my all-time favourite shop though, as whilst it's expensive, the clothes are just beautiful.
Have a look on Chictopia as well. It's full of street-style pictures and you can sort them by style (ie Rocker, Goth, Punk).
I also shop in goth-type shops because they often have some cool stuff that you can re-style as you like. It really is a matter of venturing into places you wouldn't normally think of and seeing what you find.
The link in my signature is to my blog where I post what I wear, so feel free to have a look at that, too. Hope this helped.

You want a whole new wardrobe when you're trying to lose weight? Money down the drain, if you ask me.

Yeah, I'd say it'd make more sense to wait until you've lost the weight. I like that sort of style too I think and I buy stuff from everywhere. Primark, New Look, H&M, Tesco... wherever.
I don't want to steal your thread but does anyone know any good websites/blogs which show how people have customised their clothes? I'd quite like to try it but don't really know where to start.
