Style Therapy New Year's Resolutions
As 2008 comes to an end, it's time to set some realistic goals regarding your wardrobe. Here are some tips to help you along the way:
1. I will not buy an item simply because it's on sale.
2. I will not get caught up in the number on a label. A size 2 by one designer can be a size 12 by another. I will not be a pawn to anyone's vanity sizing.
3. I will not buy an item I have doubts about in the hopes that it will grow on me. Fungus grows.
4. I will not keep clothing in my closet that I haven't worn in over a year.
5. I will detox my closet before buying another item. I'll either do it through Style Therapy or on my own.
6. I will try on EVERY SINGLE THING I purchase before leaving the store.
7. I will not allow pushy salespeople to force me to buy something so they can get their commission.
8. I will not hold onto an item I don't wear just because it's by a high-end designer.
9. I will not hold onto items I don't wear just because I got them at a steep discount.
10. I will not twirl or constantly stroke my hair.
11. I will not buy or wear any counterfeit items.
12. I will not buy any clothing that's too tight in the hopes that I'll fit into it after I lose a few pounds.
13. I will only buy colors and silhouettes that flatter me.
14. I won't get the Rihanna haircut, because it does not flatter me...even though I wish it did.
15. I will not allow my cousin Peaches to dress me. He doesn't know what he's talking about; and he's rather tacky.
16. I will make 2009 my most stylish year ever by following these simple resolutions!
