January recap plus new OOTD

What I wore in January

Can you believe that the first month of the year is already over! That means Holiday Season is just nine months away! It also means January Recap.

How are you holding up on your New Year’s resolutions? If your New Year’s resolution was to become more stylish, you can still join the 21 steps to a more stylish you course. 😉 Mine was to use an editorial calendar, and breaking it would be hard. It turned out to be such a good thing! <3

The second one related to this blog was to set up a Link-up party on this blog. I thought I would pull this stand off by mid January. (Wo)man was I wrong! It is much more work involved than I thought! I had co-hosted several linkup with my blogging friends, but being the one full in charge is quite different. Thus, a big thank you to all who host linkups!

Dress for Success series

I continued my mini series Dress for Success. The new four issues were how to dress when you are Petite, for a Dinner Party, a Military Ball, and wet, cold weather. The next post of this series goes up tomorrow right in time for Valentine’s Day.

How I styled today’s look

Now to the new OOTD. I wanted to go for a comfy, but polished weekend look. An Irish cable-knit sweater is nearly an American classic since the Kennedy boys wore it early last century (more in this post on cable knit sweaters). I finally found a pair of skinny jeans in my size in Fairbanks. They are a find in a consignment store. They were new with the tags still on them. I don’t understand how people buy clothes and then never wear them. I got these boots on eBay in summer. Same thing here. They were brand new. You often find brand new items on eBay that were gifts, but they did not fit (physically, taste, etc.), and the buyer had lost the receipt to be able to exchange it. Of course, you can’t go on eBay with the idea to find something right away. You have to browse long and frequently. I wrote a post with my best tips for 5 star shopping on eBay a while ago. Goto the post at the link when you missed it.
