8 Things to Let Go of This New Year

2009 is bound to be amazing, so let’s start the year off right with a few things that hopefully aren’t in your closet and really, really just need to be let go.

1. Uggs+ jean skirt


I’m going to get some backlash over this one I’m sure, but the jean skirt+Uggs look is very 2001; let it go. I’ll admit, they’re comfy and I wear mine around the house, keyword being around the house. There’s about a hundred million other cute riding boots and flat boots to try too.

2. Leggings


I’m just over them, they were hard to embrace and definitely have overstayed. Try tights instead like a pair of fun colored or patterned ones as an alternative.

3. Anything bling


A few years ago a strange, sparkly thing happenned. It seems someone got a hold of a glue gun and Swarovski crystals rained everywhere. I’ll be honest, I got trapped into this trend too and totally wrecked my cell phone in a blinging attempt (shameful, I know). But this was hot years ago and I still can’t believe it’s around now. Your $300 rhinestone belt is  four seasons ago and so not cute so please, please let this one go.

4. For men: Christian Audigier, Ed Hardy and True Religion


I’m not sure why Scottsdale guys woke up one day and all decided to look like clones of each other. Anything Ed Hardy, True Religion, Christian Audigier and blinged shirts (which, for that matter, should never never have been a trend) are over over over.

5. Super logo’ed bags


A little bit of monogram is O.K., but overlogo’ed items are just plain tacky. If your bag is fab, people will notice regardless of what label is stamped all over it. And let’s face it, this isn’t exactly the best economic time to be rubbing it in other people’s faces.

6. Shirts with expressions on them


Your top is not a bumper sticker.

7. Juicy Couture velour tracksuits


J. Lo let it go, it’s about time you do too. Running around in what’s essentially a matching towel set does not constitute getting dressed. Try flats and a nice dress instead, it’s just as comfy and you won’t look like a total slob. And while we’re on the subject, no logos stamped on your bum either.

8. Crocs


There’s not enough room in this blog for me to even begin to detail everything that’s wrong with those dreaded shoes called crocs. Chances are if you even bother to read this blog there’s not a chance that you own a pair, but that doesn’t mean your sister/aunt/third cousin doesn’t. Stop the insanity and let’s make them all “mysteriously” dissapear.
