Fashion Resolutions

2014 has come to an end; another year is here. As we welcome the year, let us welcome it with our hopes of better future, not only  for ourselves but also for other people. Of course, as we start the year, let us also take note of the things we want to change and the things we need to change — even fashion-wise.

Therefore, before we officially start this year, let us make our own fashion resolutions:

In Refinery 29, the author mentioned 8 style resolutions we have to make right now. My favorite among the eight mentioned resolutions are given below. These are excerpts from the article published, and all copyrights belong to the author of the article from Refinery 29:

1. Stay weird. Speaking of your dream item, what does it look like? Is it a neutral color or something unique and quirky? Whatever your response, we encourage you to keep it unexpected. Don’t be afraid to pick a polka dot over a solid, choose the overly oversized instead of a fitted cut, or wear a piece that’s truly statement-making. Let your fashion freak flag fly this year — and all the rest!

2. Value your basic. Whether it’s the main fixture of your wardrobe or simply plays a supporting role, the basics are important. Resolve to replace any gray T-shirts, black jeans, or white low-top sneakers that you’ve worn to bits. Replace them with basics that can stand up to months or years of wear. Since these are the kind of items you buy regularly — though, hopefully, not too often — look for ethically made brands, such as Everlane, Zady, and Cuyana.

3. Put care in the storage. We know how easy it is to let clothes pile up as the week goes on. Monday’s silk shirts are crumpled with Wednesday’s jeans, and jackets hang on every available edge. But, that’s no way to treat the clothes you worked so hard to purchase! Make it a point to store everything properly. Invest in sturdy hangers, extra drawers, and a shoe rack — whatever will keep your wardrobe space organized and your clothes in the best possible condition.

This also means finding a proper storage place for out-of-season clothing. Pack up whatever you’re not currently wearing in a dry, cool space.

Here, I have stated my favorites (and may be my own fashion resolutions) as I approach another year. What’s your favorite and why? Tell us in the comment section below!

Fun Fact: Most Expensive Clothing

Tis the season to be jolly.

Thus, it’s also the season to look glamorous, sophisticated, and what-not. Okay. Okay. Every season should be a reason to be beautiful and elegant. Therefore, Christmas or not, you would always find a reason to buy yourself a new dress — or maybe two to three pieces of dresses.

Before the year ends, let us give you the world’s most expensive piece of clothing. It is actually a piece of gown by one of the world’s most famous singer — Marilyn Monroe.

According to Time, Marilyn Monroe’s “Happy Birthday Mr. President” Dress was sold in 1999 with a winning bid of $1,267,500.

“When Marilyn Monroe delivered a sultry “Happy Birthday” serenade to President John F. Kennedy on May 19, 1962, the blonde bombshell wore a flesh-colored, curve-hugging, jewel-encrusted dress so tight and sheer that, according to legend, Monroe was sewn into the gown and wore nothing under it. The one-of-a-kind sheath was purchased in 1999 by the aptly named Manhattan-based collectible company Gotta Have It! after the dress was put up for auction by the widow of Monroe’s acting coach, Lee Strasberg. When asked by reporters why he would spend a fortune on a piece of fabric that originally cost $12,000, company president Robert Schargen proclaimed that he would have paid twice that: “We stole it,” he boasted (Time).”

Photos of the dress are shown below:

December Sleepwear

“Baby, it’s cold outside” she said.

“Baby, Let us shop for you some sleepwear and let’s stay in afterwards instead,” he said.

Off they go to Shoppinglandia and strolled he streets until they spot a fashion store that sparkled with sale signs. Without thinking twice, they went inside and discovered that the name of the strore was GAP, and they are presently offering sleepwear/loungewear sales.

So the woman, to her delight, and of course with her man’s permission, went on a shopping spree. She bought several pieces of sleepwear/loungewear. To be exact, she bought two bottoms and three tops. She was beaming with joy and gladness, and although the man knew this would be another luxurious price to pay, he didn’t mind for he knew her woman was the happiest on Earth at that very moment.

Long story short, they paid for the pieces, walked their way home, stopping by a store for a cup-to-go cappuccino, and cuddled their night away.

But, wait, that’s not the end of this really short story. Upon arriving home, the woman, who was so eager and excited, opened her shopped bag and showed her man what she had. Then, they both saw the following:

Boucle turtleneck sweater

cozy french terry sweatshirt

isle leggings

Satisfied with the designs she picked, she first chose the pure body longsleeve tee and paired it with her isle leggings and waited for her partner to lay in bed beside her, and when he did, he said:

“Baby, it’s cold outside,” he said.

“I know. Let’s just stay in and cuddle the night away,” she said.

Winter Essentials for Women’s Outfits

December is already here. That means, there will be more colder days and more reasons to shop clothing for layering. Keeping warm is very important. However, being fashionable while staying warm is of the same importance — for some women that is. Thus, as we approach December, we are giving you the essentials for layering that you can use. December is fashion month, just like all the other months of the year.

1. Skinny Jeans

Skinny JeansSkinny jeans is a staple for the season. The best colors for the skinny jeans are those that can be paired with anything — something neutral or in the shades of black, white, and/or gray. You can wear it also with any kind of footwear — like flats, sandals, boots, sneakers, etc. You may want to check out Buckle for ideas and styles and for branded skinny jeans.

2. Long-Sleeve T-Shirt
