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:

From CultureMap Houston, by way of Unconsumption:

First lady Michelle Obama surprised the fashion world when she appeared at the recent “Christmas in Washington” concert in a black dress with a black lace overlay purchased from a┬áNew York vintage shop.

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!

        Yes, I found a really interesting pair of “Unity” jeans at Buffalo Exchange. They were actually brand new. I didn’t realize until looking at them a bunch of times that the stitching & tags were reminiscent of a whole bunch of brands. I have been meaning to do a blog post about this very topic and include a photo. When I have 1 I will share on FB. Happy New Year to you too.
