My New Years Fashion Resolutions


I can't believe a new year is ahead of us already! It seems like were were just ringing in 2007. I'm so excited to see what 08' has to hold! I always make a New Year's resolution and I'm pretty good at sticking to them. This year I've made up a list of my 2008 New Year's Fashion Resolutions:

1. Learn to Sew: A sewing machine was at the top of my Christmas list this year. Now that I have one I can't wait to begin learning the basics of sewing and start some cute projects! I decided if I want to be in the fashion industry knowing about the construction of clothing is vital.

2. Score a Sweet Internship: This summer I'd like to find a local boutique or magazine with a fashion department. I'd like to learn as much as I can about the industry and take advantage of all the opportunities that come my way.

3. Open up a Vintage Shop on Etsy: I've been scouring local thrift shops and consignment stores for unique, trendy vintage finds. Coming in January will be a La Petite Fashionista vintage boutique on etsy! I can't wait to share my love for vintage shopping with the world.

4. Invest in Classic Wardrobe Staples: I'd like to find some classic pieces that my wardrobe is missing. I'd even splurge on some if I knew they would never go out of style. Particularly a cashmere sweater, trench, and pair of jeans tailored to fit me perfectly.

5. Update my Blog more: Since I've been in college I've definitely not been fulfilling my blogging duties! So I'm going to make more time to make sure I'm making my blog the best it can be.

xoxo, Lauren

Take it from a real life fashion editor, I wish more aspring fashionistas were like you. It;s vital to know how clothes are constructed and the terminology for the subject. I am SO fed up with girls who don't go the extra mile. It's a competitive industry and you need to want to learn! Good for you!! LLG xx

A vintage shop on etsy, how good that would be? Go for it, and tell me when it's open ;)

Those are really great resolutions. I should put my moms sewing machine to use too!
And then I would open a shop on etsy :)

By the way, I was wondering if you would like to join this forum that a bunch of us bloggers are in?

Some great resolutions, and the vintage shop sounds so cool
Knowing about the process of making clothes really does help with writing about fashion, and it makes you respect designers a whole lot more!
Happy 2008!

I love all your resolutions. I have a sewing machine from a few birthdays ago, so I made the resolution to try and start sewing too!

Wonderful resolutions! And be sure to post pictures of your sewing projects once you start working on that resolution :)
