New Year’s Resolution…Fashion Edition

Got Fashion?Cookies and Milk
Strawberries and Chocolate
Pedicures and Flip Flops

Some things just seem to go together.
Of course with the coming of New Years, comes the resolutions.

Last year was my big 3-0 birthday so this year I have decided to make some fashion resolutions so I can avoid the frump. Then I thought what better way to be held accountable for my resolutions than by sharing them with my fashion forward friends. So without further ado.

My 10 Fashion Resolutions for 2009!

  • Get or give myself regular manicures. When my nails are colorful I feel prettier!
  • Weekly pedicures in the summer (I’m thinking this will be the easiest resolution to achieve since I’m pretty good at getting them!)
  • Begin to accessorize with some funky jewelry. I always envy those women with the chunky, hip jewelry that complements their outfits perfectly.
  • Learn how to layer my clothes!
  • Invest in some classic pieces like the little black dress, crisp white button up shirt, black trouser pants, a form fitting blazer… (what other pieces do you consider “classic”?)
  • Take more fashion risks rather than relying on the jeans and tee look.
  • Shoes, shoes, shoes…I want to try out some ballet flats and find some funky new shoes to accessorize.
  • Find some new handbags. I was stuck in a Vera craze for awhile and now am not sure what I want, but definitely something different.
  • Subscribe to a fashion magazine to stay in touch with what is “in,” but don’t get carried away with the trends!
  • Get in a habit of washing my face every night rather than using the excuse that I’m too tired.

What about you? Are there some fashion resolutions that you have for the New Year? I’d love to hear about them. Leave a comment sharing your resolution and maybe I can even help you stick with them by posting on some of the topics you share.

Happy New Year!!!

  1. Dena Brandt says:

    Mine is to invest in the “classic” clothing items like you mentioned and to buy some really nice jeans. This will all look great with fun, trendy jewelry I sell – Cookie Lee Jewelry.

    I also plan to get a pedicure more often, as this will help with my “fashion” resolutions and “self care” resolutions at the same time!

    Thank you for the New Year’s inspiration.

  2. I can’t remember who said this (Coco Chanel?), but it’s great advice: after you get dressed, look in the mirror and take off one thing. Because boy, do I love my jewelry. And my layers. That’s my resolution.

  3. There’s too much spitting-up going on in my household to even think about fashion, but I resolve to revisit the subject whenever the spitting up ceases and I can wear a shirt longer than 30 minutes without it becoming mottled with blobs of clotted cream. And ideally, one day, I’d like to take all my jeans to the tailor and have them “done” to fit my body perfectly, so I don’t have to hoist them up every 5 minutes.

  4. Mine is to go for quality instead of quantity when buying clothes, which is going to be painful cause I am cheap and have a teensy weensy “me” budget. But I think I will be thankful in the long run. And also that accessory thing that you said!

  5. Mine is like Jenny’s. Less cheap clothes, more good quality clothes. I would like to get some more interesting accessories. I wear silver jewelry way too much. And I need to get my jeans done too, as Megan says.

    As for classic basics–a good pair of jeans to wear with that crisp white button-down and ballet flats.

  6. Oh, goodness! You don’t wash your face every night? I’m so fixated on that one beauty ritual that if I fall asleep without having done it, I’ll get up in the middle of the night to wash my face. 🙂
