Okay here's the deal: I'm style illiterate. I can get by but usually I don't care because I prefer comfortable clothes to 'pretty' ones. Sometimes I want to look good though.
I'm slim, about 140lbs (63.5kg) and 5'7 1/2" (171.45cm). I have a 'pear' shape (hips are wider than shoulders), but I'm a 34C bra size. My hip measurement is about 38". I'm fine boned, but not petite or tiny, and I have really well toned legs.
My face shape is 'round' (which is a total pain in the but) and I have short, but well layered, brunette hair, with blue bangs. On the plus side my face has been described as 'very symmetrical' and when I wear make-up a certain way I've been told I look like a porcelain doll (I'm rather fair skinned with a pretty good complexion).
So what kind of semi-dressy outfit do you think would look good on me? Please keep in mind that I'm conservative by nature and don't want a look that would get me propositioned on street corners.

Since you have wider hips I'd suggest an a line skirt or dress coupled with a top with detailing or print. Keep your lower half more neutral and accentuate your upper body to balance out the proportion.
Wrap dresses are classy with a pair of pumps and when you wear a dress, wear nail polish to look more put-together.
As for tops and bottoms, check out banana republic, mexx, laura, jacob (although only in canada and boston), Joseph, smart set, or rw&co for dressy stuff.
since you have fair skin, most colours will work with you but keep it generally light. dark colours in the wrong palette will make you look drawn.0
