Some people make generalized resolutions at the new year, I make shopping resolutions at the new year. And this year I made three resolutions. The first is: no more black. I have a ton of black clothes, perhaps it is because I live in New York but it is a go to habit that I want to break. So I am on a mission to not buy any black for the next year; no black clothes, coats or shoes. Think I can pull it off? Not sure if I will go an entire year without buying one black item, but wish me luck.
And the second resolution is: no heels over two inches high. Last week I wrote about a pair of boots I picked up at Zara with a 1.5 inch heel. I wore them to work yesterday and walked all over the city with comfort and ease. It is nice to be able to wear a heel and still be able to walk for an extended period of time. With higher heels I have wear sneakers to work and then carry the heels in bag and put them on at the office. And I find this is the only time I wear higher heels—when I am at the office. This is so limiting and I would like to have more shoes I can wear out and about with friends and that I can commute to work in, without having to do a swap at the office.
And my final resolution is to acquire more jewelry. I don’t have very many pieces and so I wear the same pieces over and over. And with these two jewelry designers I featured on the blog, I will be off to a good start. Then I will have to get in the habit of actually wearing it. I have a bad habit of running out the door in the morning sans jewelry, and I hope to break this habit as well. This will take a little work, but knowing what the problem is half the battle right?
Do you have any shopping/fashion resolutions for 2017?
