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 secondhand – the things you no longer need, donate. And the things you love, wear with confidence and look like a million bucks. Case in point:
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 New 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!
