Fashion Resolution: Fun With Color and Prints!

Hello, everyone…I hope you are staying warm, safe, and
joyful on this day after Christmas!
had a wonderful family time and now we are on the fast pace toward our son’s
wedding this weekend!
My awesome children!
In thinking about a New Year, I thought I would mention
setting some fashion resolutions for your wardrobe. 2013 could be a really fun
year and time to step out of your comfort zone. 
I started using my Parisian Chic 2013 Weekly Planner, written by Ines de la Fressange
and Sophie Gachet (which fits nicely in my purse!).  They write about New
Year’s Eve:
*And, if you’re ever going to dare to wear that kooky
dress, now’s the time, because none of your friends will remember anything in the

Well, maybe we should push ourselves to go a little farther this
year with color and prints on more than just New Year’s Eve… and when all are
sober around us!   Goodwill is the place
to begin….you can go out of your box and not spend vast amounts of dollars
doing so.  If you like it….add it to the
wardrobe….if it is a one- time look…re-donate it and treasure hunt at Goodwill once again.
As I was purchasing this vibrant red blouse, a woman looked
over from another counter and said, “Oh, I almost bought that!  I really liked it, but just did not have the
courage to wear it!”  She appeared to be
middle aged, so I gave her my card and encouraged her to join in the fun for
Remember, now is the time when
people clean out the closets to make end- of- year- donations….Goodwill’s are
well stocked!!
Where would I wear this? 
I think it is perfect for entertaining at home…a fun dinner party with
friends or even lunch on our cultural Riverwalk in downtown San Antonio!
I also picked up this colorful tunic which I know I will
wear for spring and teaching summer school!!
It’s time for some fashion fun and Goodwill is a treasure-chest
waiting to open!  Would anyone like to
share fashion resolutions with us?? 

a wonderful Wednesday!


  1. I love that tunic on you! You are so right, I just cleaned out my closet and dropped my donations off but didn't have time to go in and shop. 2013 I will add some zest to my wardrobe.

  2. Wonderful family.
    I am so glad for all the good things coming your way: the wedding, baby on the way, and your gorgeous family.ENJOY IT ALL.
    That first blouse should be mine, by the way, lol.

  3. I love both tops on you- and the fact that you are "brave" enough to rock them! I hope that lady gets as inspired by you as I am- I know that it's ok to stretch the comfort zone a bit, and glam up no matter what I may have felt before. Your love of color and style show your zest for life!
