New Year's Resolution

Everyone in the blogosphere is talking about their New Year's resolution and so I am going to be lame and be no different!  I have three resolutions but I am only going to talk about two (the third is irrelevant).

1. [LAME]I want to get in shape!  I have never had a major weight issue, per say but, I used to be a ballerina so to me, as I prepare to turn 27 years old this January, I feel out of shape and pudgy.  I guess i really don't care what the scale says but I just want to lose what shouldn't be there.  So, I have rejoined my yoga studio (that helped me SO much for my wedding!) and I am working on getting in a spin class at the gym and two a week at home.  And (prepare to gasp) I am going to try not eating meat.

2.  Due to my husband's unemployment (stupid building industry laying off all the architects), I am going to shop almost exclusively at thrift stores and resale shops and I am going to utilize what I ALREADY OWN.  This is hard for me because I love shopping and I work in an industry (the beauty industry) that is very trendy and full of shopping temptations. 

With that said, here is my before picture...  (j/k  its just an outfit pic!)

Cardigan: Thrifted
Sweater: Christmas Present

I'm excited to see what you find in your thrift/vintage hunts! It becomes addictive after a while:)

I started wearing all thrifted/vintage clothing about 3 years ago and haven't looked back. The only things I buy new are shoes (my feet are too big to find thrifted shoes but I did just find some boots!), tights and of course underwear. It's really not that hard to stay 'on trend' as many designers/new trends are based on vintage items (look at Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters and Modcloth!). We still need to go thrifting together at some point... maybe if it 'warms' up a little here in the Chicagoland area. :(
