What a whirlwind year 2012 was!! Full of ups and downs and all sorts of surprises, last year certainly kept us on our toes! Here’s an awesome video recap, if you’re already feeling nostalgic: 2012 Recap. There were binders full of women, the last Twinkie was manufactured, President Obama was re-elected, Gabby Douglass became a household name, and the entire world was introduced to Clint Eastwood’s infatuation with empty chairs. Last year also saw the end of Michael Phelps’ pro career; the death of Whitney Houston, the devastation caused by Super storm Sandy, and too many lives lost due to shooting sprees. While we could never forget what 2012 encompassed, it’s time to look forward to what 2013 will bring. Trends come and go, that’s why they’re trends; so with that being said it’s time to say au revoir to some that have overstayed their welcome and time to make room for some fresh, new, exciting ones. Here’s to sticking it to the Mayans and making it to a New Year!
There are some things on this list that I’m going to have a hard time parting with. Sushi will forever hold a spot on my top 5 favorite foods list, some things are worth paying full price for, wayfarers are my stunna shades of choice, and no matter how obnoxious monogrammed accessories can be - if I wanted to know your initials, I would just StalkerNet you - they are pretty classic wardrobe pieces. Maybe we’re not entirely over some of the top trends of 2012, but we should at least attempt to keep an open mind about 2013, right? New Year’s resolution, perhaps?
XO and Happy New Year!
