Fashionattitute: New Year’s Resolutions From A Woman Who Usually Doesn’t Make Them

Fountain of 30

While Heatherbelle is away traveling the world, her cousin Gabriella (who has just as much attitude) has kindly offered to fill in.

I’m not one to make New Year’s Resolutions. I know the majority fail and I am unconventional. If I am going to start a diet, it’s going to be on a Tuesday, never a Monday. If I’m going to join the gym, it’s going to be over the summer when I can get a crazy good deal, and not January 1 when I know I will never get into a class or on an elliptical machine. So of course when asked what my fashion and beauty resolutions were, I initially laughed the question off. Then I got to thinking, maybe my New Year’s Resolution was to actually make a New Year’s Resolution or two … ones I could possibly realistically keep. So without further ado, here they are:

1. I will learn how to apply nail applique polish well. By that I mean cutting in a straight line and filing.

2. I will rid my jewelry box of all knuckle rings because let’s face it, they are ugly and scare men. So you may be asking yourself, do I mean the ones that extend horizontally over multiple fingers or the extra long one with hinges that extends up to your nail bed? The answer would be both.

3. I will only shop the flash sale sites where I actually would buy something. I waste too many hours at work browsing them all and those are hours I can’t get back. Let’s call a spade a spade, most sell junk.

4. I will only buy shoes with red soles (Louboutin or YSL). Who cares if I can’t eat for a week or two?

5. I will try to limit the amount of black I buy. OK, at least one bright colored item for every four. My closet can no longer look like it belongs to Morticia.

1. Sally Hansen Salon Effects – Kitty, Kitty, now $4.27

2. Eddie Borgo Hinged Gunmetal-plated Pavé Crystal Ring, $425


4. Highness Platform Pump in Black, $1075

5. Preen Line Azure Stretch Cotton-drill Dress, $665

Check back with me in a few months and see how I do.
