A New Year’s Resolution

For 2011, why not make a resolution that is good for the planet, good for the community, and good for your conscience? Buy less new things the things you need, buy secondhandthe things you no longer need, donate. And the things you love, wear with confidence and look like a million bucks. Case in point:

It is believed to be the first time that a first lady has worn a second-hand dress to a high-profile public event.

We can’t wait for 2011. Our resolution? Let’s make it a year of style and substance!
