To view the other outfits for the new year, check out Forever29.This year, sartorial wise I resolve to decrease the cost per wear of my garments and stay focused on purchasing classics. I have them pinned on Pinterest here. (Yes, I finally joined Pinterest! Better late than never, right?)
Well, dear readers, may 2013 be everything you wished for & more! What are some of your 2013 resolutions? Kindly share!
p/s: I have something planned for the blog scheduled to happen soon. (fingers crossed!) Stay tuned!
Growing up, Christmas was a family gathering where we would gather at my aunt’s house for a potluck party. Since moving here to the US, Christmas for the most part is a day to unwind and have some “me time.” (preferably with some egg nog, of course!) This week’s What to Wear Where got me thinking about Christmas tradition. Since I don’t really have one, I decided to start one – wearing a gifted item to celebrate Christmas. Christmas for me as a non-Christian has always been appreciating the wonderful people that I have in my life. To show my love and appreciation, I think it’s only apt that I don gifts that I have received as part of my Christmas tradition.
Come this Christmas day, I’ll be home in this cozy outfit that consists of gifts that I’ve received throughout my life.
As mentioned here, it’s our company’s Xmas holiday party this evening, and I decided to keep to the same color scheme as the previous outfit – navy and red. I am however, incorporating mixed prints to it, stars and polka dots, both classics in my book.
I am working on paring down garments in my wardrobe and have put myself on a self-imposed ban. (Although, I did recently add a sweater to my wardrobe but I was replacing another sweater that is worn out.) As such, I have been shopping for jewelry to add to my collection instead. I have since added two bracelets, two rings, and a necklace to my collection!
In my opinion, jewelry is a great way to accessorize and complete an outfit. It is also a great way to add color or a delicate/edgy piece to reflect one’s style. As a person who considers herself to be fairly conservative style-wise, I find jewelry to be a great way to add some sparkle that isn’t screaming for attention. Here are some that I am currently coveting…
I have an affinity for bows as I find them to be rather feminine and a classic in my book (much like polka dots and stripes). Since I’m on a clothing ban, I am coveting these bow accessories. (I may or may not have purchased one or more of these..! Heh)
