My parents are really strict to the point of being controlling. I'm not allowed to do things that other teens take for granted. The list is pretty long: no boyfriends, no hanging out at the mall, no manis/ pedis, not going out to see movies, not wearing makeup, no sleep overs, not driving a car, not going to parties, and the list goes on.
I want to update my look. Let's say I am still wearing the same clothes from middle school/high school. I am now 22 and it really sucks. I definitely want to look a bit more mature, you know? In my closet, I can count the amount of dresses I have on one hand.
I try to be very reasonable. My sense of style doesn't involve any body parts hanging out or anything. But I always get shot down by my parents. My dad thinks that me wearing heels would have me working on a street corner or something. It took me 6 yrs. to convince my mom to buy me a razor. When I do dress up, its only for important events. The last time I wore a dress, it was for a funeral, for pete's sake!
I do have some money saved up, but I pratically have to beg my parents to drive me to the bank or to the stores. They always make a big deal of it, like taking me out to the store is a big waste of their time.
I do want to feel pretty and not wear jeans for once. I usually get mistaken for looking like a middle schooler than my real age. I basically have to beg for what I want. My younger brothers don't have this problem, only me.
Can any one give me any advice?

Woah. I can't imagine being in your situation. My parents haven't had that sort of control over me since I started working, which was several years ago ><
Do you have a part time job? Talk to your parents about finding a small, reasonable part time job so you can get some experience for your resume :)
As for style, maybe you should look into conservative dresses and skirts :D maybe Modcloth.com can help you out :) They have some really nice conservative clothing. It's a bit pricey, but its worth it if you can afford it.
