Style Resolutions for 2011

I am not really that kind of person who makes resolutions every year coz I know I’ll probably end up sticking to none of them. ;-P However, for 2011, I do like to write down some style resolutions that I want to keep. My goal is to build a perfectly balanced wardrobe filled with only my favorites, so the plan is to:

  1. Invest in classics.
  2. Understand needs vs. wants: to avoid impulse or regrettable buys.
  3. Focus on neutral staples: I need more neutrals to complement my already colorful wardrobe.
  4. Be true to myself: buy clothes that only march to my own beat, instead of being seduced by trends & sales.

Ok, I guess that’s pretty enough. 2011 has just started but I’ve already returned three of my impulse sale purchases. What I am keeping are things I truly love and need: two white shirts, a navy skirt and a stone gray trench coat. You see, making resolutions is a good thing. It worked even for me, at least for now. lol!

We are leaving for Paris next week, I’ll keep you posted whether my plan still works in the city of light. ;-) So until my next post, stay happy and chic!

    Great resolutions and I can totally relate! I also told myself that I will only shop online if I’ve seen and tried the pieces IRL or if they are rare. Have fun in Paris! That’ll be difficult to resist, especially with the French sales happening.

    All the best with the sales. Hope you get some bargains! Remember stick your elbows out, be polite but firm when some idiot decides to jump the queue at the H sale (they’re lots of them) and don’t let the aggressive ones bully you into submission. Can’t wait to see your reveal!

    deux armoires, thank you. I couldn’t agree more on online shopping. Now I try to only order at shops where free return shipping is offered.

    ccc, thanks a lot for the tips. I have nothing special in mind but still looking forward to it. :-)
