Hexagon sun, I just cleaned out my closet today and filled two huge bags with them, I will give it all to the charity.
Feel so much lighter after doing that really, but I also decided not to spend any money on clothes in this sale time, which I was planning to till today, so it's a double win.

Otherwise I've been pretty good with shopping last year, so will just continue doing the same.
I am probably moving this year, so additional clothes would only mean unwanted troubles.

Stylewise I'll only pay attention to make more combinations out of clothes I own and will probably have to invest in shoes more, last year I bought only one pair (sandals) and one pair was given to me, so I'm sure I'll have to restore my stocks. :p

Yeah this is my exact situation. I'm moving next month and I'm looking at some of my stuff and thinking I just don't want it around after that! And I don't want to have a ridiculous amount to pack either. But it's nice to have that little pressure because I've gotten rid of a LOT of clutter in my closet, replaced some crappier stuff, added more color instead of so much black... feels good.

Don't buy cheap stuff. (!!!)
Don't wear leggings. (!!!) (well except when I'm horseback riding)
Wear high heels more often.

-To only buy clothes that I love. And to continue to have fun with what I wear.
I'm adding another fashion resolution....

-To buy more sustainable/organic and fair trade clothing items this year. It sort of ties in with my resolution to buy less "fast fashion" but I figure it would be nice to differentiate between the two. So far I've already started working towards this goal with a purchase from People Tree and wearing locally sourced wool gloves and socks, hand-knit by my mom.

1. Buy more high quality sweaters.
2. Buy more cashmere from uniqlo (ie. grey,black or navy cardigans, v necks etc).
3. Replace my black skinny jeans (maybe from rag & bone or mother)
4. Get rid of the stuff i never wore. (this is ongoing and very daunting)
4. find the perfect bed jacket.
5. find the perfect jeweled head band.
6. buy more jewelry.

I kind of already am, since im in the proces of crocheting 3 jumpers for myself, and am wearing hats, socks and scarves i made last year, but im definitely going to educate myself about the organic and fairtrade clothes options available around here, because i can only think of one off the top of my head.

^That's awesome! I love cozy knitted or crocheted things, there is something so wonderful about wearing a handmade item. I don't knit (though I've been thinking about learning how too) but I love all the hand-knit things my mom makes, they just feel like they are made with love. I'm trying to educate myself some more about the organic and fair trade clothes that I have access too, and about the whole movement itself. You might want to check out the sustainability and fair trade fashion thread, I've been using it myself as jumping off points in my research.

Same issue here. I am in between a 28 and a 29. My normal size is 28... I am putting off buying jeans as much as possible because of this :/

My resolutions
- stick to the 1 per month item rule
- manage to have a functional wardrobe with jeans/sweaters/trench and master the layering.
- learn to have a very practical yet very me/pretty style not only during holidays but everyday. In short, succeed at my 4-5 piece challenge.
