Happy 2015! I can’t believe another year has gone by so quickly. Each year I think of better ways to do things than the last year. I limited my resolutions to six so I will (hopefully) stick to them!
1. Shop My Own Closet! I need to re-evaluate what is already in my closet. I can wear some of the 90s pieces I kept because they are trending again! I’m fairly certain I already own this Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent coat pictured above (including the pants and sandals). I hope find to different ways to style some of the pieces I already own.
2. Recycle Fashion. Sell or give away clothing and accessories I no longer wear. Fashion is a waste sitting in a closet! I can use any money I make to buy new pieces. I may wear that halter sweater top again … maybe “under a jacket” (Yeah, right!) Give it away!
3. Don’t Match. I’m not sure why, maybe because I’m bored, but this year I want to purposely wear unusual colors and mix up trends. I want my personal styling to get both a “huh?” and a nod. I’m inspired by this Paco Rabanne look … black with blue and shiny track pants and a pea coat. I’m not sure where she’s going but I love the look.
4. Buy Quality Over Quantity. Find the quality items on sale at quantity prices like this Neiman Marcus cashmere sweater on sale.
5. Moisturize Diligently All Over! My face, under eyes, neck, body, hands and feet get so dry, especially in winter, so I must not neglect any inch of skin! No matter how cold it is when I’m applying it.
6. Exercise More – No Excuses! Once I get to the gym I love it, so if I actually have it written down in my calendar it will remind me I have an appointment to workout and I will get there more frequently. I must stick to my schedule!
