CHICago’s Fashion Resolutions
We’re not big fans of overarching, unattainable New Year’s resolutions. At a certain point it just feels like setting yourself up for failure. However, we’re always fans of a good closet clean out and the New Year is the perfect time to take inventory of what you have, reevaluate what you need, and make a few “fashion resolutions” for the upcoming year. We rounded up some of Chicago’s favorite fashionistas and asked them what their fashion resolutions are for 2014. As always,Jena Gambaccini, Jenn Lake, Monika Dixon, Corri McFadden, Hallie Duesenberg, Helen Berkun, Samantha Sleeper, Danielle Moss, Alexis Cozzini, Samantha Saifer Berngard, and Christina Fan did not disappoint! What fashion resolutions are you making this year?
