I am not really a person that makes new year’s resolutions but this list was a must! So what are your style and shopping resolutions for 2013?


  1. I should just copy/paste this b/c almost all apply to me! I definitely need to work on impulse shopping, feeling like I need to buy something just b/c it's on sale, and just trying new styles/trends.

  2. I have some of the same style resolutions. Buying duplicate items is a baddd habit to break. I basically want to buy less, shop my closet more and save more money for vacations. 

  3.  It sure it because if I love something I want it in every single color! Lol.

  4. I'm loving the resolutions!! I definitely agree with you on the impulse shopping and sales. I need to start utilizing more of what is in my closet and I also want to take more fashion risks :) 

    With Love,

  5. Love this...I am going to have to incorporate some of these resolutions into my life, as well! 

  6. Love this post !!!!

  7. I need to follow most of these resolutions

  8.  I end up with a lot of stuff I give away when I impulse shop so I definitely need to work on that.

  9. Wow you are talking to me. These are great tips.

    I try not to make resolutions BUT a few of these are right on point for me. They also seem very attainable? For lack of a better word.

  11. I love that you wrote wear something under than peep-toes! This is a great least for anyone - good luck with it!

  12. Great resolutions!  I need to stop shopping just because I find a deal but that is most of my shopping!  I hope to make it at least two weeks with out shopping!  Good luck this year!

  13. Here are some of mine: 
    *don't be a natural hair product junkie
    *try new styles, color combo's...stay away from black
    *more thrifting

  14.  I have a lot of black also it is my safe fall back color.

  15.  Me too! I will make myself find something to buy just because the price is too good to pass up!

  16.  I am such a peep toe fanatic, I need to experiment more, lol. 

  17.  I am not a resolution person either but these style resolution are a must for me, lol.

  18. I always feel like I have nothing to wear and run out and buy something only to wear it once.  Yaay to more fashion risks I can't wait to see what you come up with.

  19.  I love your list so many things spoke to me however the one that resonated the most is not to purchase things just because I saw it on someone's blog. I have to realize that just because I like it doesn't mean it's for me or that I have to have it. Great list!!!
