I’m not one for New Years Resolutions but I am one to set goals, learn, and grow. Rather than just focusing on one area of my life, I like to set goals in all aspects of my life…health, home, happiness, and of course style. The New Year is a great time of year for me to clean out my closet, assess my wardrobe, and challenge myself to rework pieces in new ways. Hmmm….upcoming post perhaps?
Here are a few of my (fun) goals for 2013…
1) Read my stack of books I’ve been meaning to get to.
2) Clean out our “throw everything in there” room in our house.
3) Finish our wedding album.
4) More date nights with my husband.
5) Give my blog a facelift.
Happy New Year to all my amazing readers! I really appreciate all of your support over this last year. I can’t wait to share a very stylish 2013 with you.
Happy New Year!
It can sound horrible to compare your body shape to a piece of fruit, however pear shape is the best way to describe my figure. Over the years I’ve learned to highlight the positives and camouflage the less desirable areas of my body. I’ve been blessed with a small waist, so belts are added to many of my looks. This black leather belt is a pretty contrast against the rose gold sequins. With a fuller hip, bum, and thigh I tend to wear darker colours on the bottom and often layer with a jacket or cardi to help balance out my proportions. A killer pair of heels help elongate my shorter legs and gives the illusion of length. I liked the low neckline on this top. My collar bones are a feature I like to show off so I just added a simple layered necklace to help fill in the space and add some interest. Sparkle with sparkle is completely appropriate for a date night out…especially on New Years Eve. This sequin stunner clutch adds another element of glam without being over the top.
A quick style fix between pics.

Be sure to check out how all The Style Common Ladies have styled their Joe Fresh holiday sequins.
I adore getting dressed during the holidays. I’m either in cozy knits and loads of layers or dressed to impress. Fabrics like lace, tulle, and velvet paired with sequins and beading make any girl feel like they’re channeling their inner Holly Go-Lightly. Our Deck Your Closet event was my first holiday soiree of the season. I was wearing a Mystree velvet dress from The Urban Rack, tulle cardi from Today boutique, Belt by Brave Leather, and necklace from Forever 21. It wasn’t planned, but I love how well coordinated we ladies are in this picture. Black, ivory, and gold are clearly our picks for the holiday season. We had tons of things to see and do at our event. Here’s a look at the goings on…
