Hello, gorgeous! I understand that my profile has been set to private, so some of you were unable to view Vogue It Up. I believe that this has been fixed.

Now, I realized that this post comes three days after the new year, but I've decided to post my fashion resolutions anyway!

As much as it pains me to say, and even more to actually do, it has to be done. As a college student on a budget, I just don't have the funds right now to appease my shopping bug. Also, this will help me break the nasty habit I have of buying cheap, trendy stuff, as opposed to well-made, classic pieces that are the basis of a good wardrobe. So, until June rolls around, I will not buy anymore clothes.

2. Buy flats.
I'm not much a flat kinda girl, and even less of a sneakers one, but I have to admit it: flats are practical. While my hot pink 4" pumps may look adorable, they're not the smartest choice for running around campus. So, I vow to find a few pairs of flats that I don't hate!

3. Invest in good, quality pieces.
I intend to do this slowly, over the summer. (If I can make it six months without shopping, my boyfriend promised to take me on a shopping spree. Isn't he amazing? ) I need to make a list of what I want(/need,) and what I already have. Then I'll decide which stores have the best quality for the price I'm willing to pay, and when it actually comes down to it - PURCHASE THE ITEMS! This part will be the hardest. Dreaming of good-quality, well-made, more expensive items is one thing, but actually plunking down the cash for them when you're used to Wet Seal is another.

4. Figure out what my style is.
I tend to bounce around a lot, from rocker-chick to preppy to girly. I've noticed that I certainly feel better in some items as opposed to others, so I'll spend the next six months experimenting and figuring out what works for me.

So, darling readers, what are your fashion resolutions for this year? Let me know in the tagboard to the left!
