January is a great time to put changes in motion for the year ahead. I don't like to set myself really difficult goals for the year ahead though as I want to be proud of myself come December rather than feeling disappointed that I didn't keep up with all my good resolutions... So I won't promise myself to go to the gym twice a week, or to refurbish my entire house. However, I can easily make a pact with myself to change some things in the style department. Refreshing my look isn't too commitment heavy, yet it will make me feel like a new person. It is a win-win scenario, really...
Luisa Via Roma, one of our beloved international e-stockists, is already carrying a good size selection of our Spring-Summer 14 collection and so I had a little shop around for new bags, new ideas and style resolutions for the year ahead...
This is my resolution every year: "Invest in classic pieces". They never let you down and together you will have a lifetime of happiness. Make it a tradition: every January treat yourself to a new timeless piece to add to your wardrobe. These are heirlooms you will pass on to your children, so start now!
I travel a lot and of course, I am always carrying a lot too... This year, "Free your hands" with the help of a super trendy backpack. Carry your house on your back and you will be free to touch, hold, climb, wave and more. Adventure awaits!
One should always "Pay attention to the smallest details" as it is the little things that make life magical. Look around you, take some time to take in everything you see. When you get dressed, think about the trimmings, not just about the main pieces. That's what will set you apart in the style game.
Black is like a comfort blanket in the Winter. We wrap ourselves in dark hues and hope we will disappear. NOT ANYMORE! "Embrace colour like an old friend"! Be bold, be brave and let the sun shine inside of you. Colour makes everything nicer, people will smile at you in the street and you will feel the Winter gloom lift instantly.
Finally, always "Be unpredictable!". Change your style, change your hair, surprise your friends. Turn it around, switch things up, try new things everyday. Fashion is fun!
