The new year is all about wiping the slate clean and looking ahead. A time when you dream big and convince yourself you’re actually going to complete that cleanse. I made New Decade resolutions at the beginning of 2010, which means I’m covered for another nine years. So I asked a few of my favourite Vancouver bloggers to share their fashionable resolutions with us. (You can find part one here and part two here.) Below, Anya Georgijevic, Melissa Knight and Alicia Quan share their thoughts on mama’s wardrobe, sewing buttons and small closets...

Over the Christmas Holidays, I grabbed a whole bunch of my mom’s 80s floral skirts and tops. They feel very Dries Van Noten even though the resemblance is, most likely, accidental. Sewing was her hobby and on her trips to Russia, she would pick up gorgeous hand painted cashmeres and silks. My goal is to take them to my tailor and make the pieces work for me. It’s always tricky because my mom was 5’9″ and probably size 8/10 and I’m 5’6″ and size 4/6 but having something originally created by my mother is so much more valuable to me than buying things off the rack.

So my New Year’s fashion resolution is to stop attempting to “fix” items of clothing on my own and finally go to a tailor.
I guess that means I’ll have to admit that my sewing talents end at sewing on a button, won’t it?

My main goal is to keep my closet organized. I’m moving in April and won’t have as much closet space (I know, my heart breaks too).
This includes not as much shopping as I did this year, and that if I am adding something, then something else may have to go.
Thanks ladies! Here’s to a stylin’ 2011!
