I know, I know, we’re boycotting resolutions this year as demanded by the very people behind this computer screen, but now that we’ve let 2014 in to see how beautiful we look when the clock strikes 12, how do you feel about setting short term goals? They don’t have to be grandiose and dramatic, they can just be what they are. We can strip our lives of irony and exist like earnest humans again!

Figure one goal every two weeks, yeah? I’ll go first.

If I can premeditatively do just one thing in the forthcoming fourteen days — fine, two things — the first is to make up and use the fictitious word ‘premeditatively’ which I just did so, check, this is the best year already — it is to locate a pair of suspenders so I can approximate the above look.

Why Leandra, have you never thought about wearing a white undershirt devoid of any caustic implications, to exist beneath a button up blouse that will unwittingly look cool but also just keep you warm. Why?

K, your turn.

    omg t shirt beneath unbuttoned button-down is SO GOOD. And yes, you need a pair of suspenders. There are billions of them sitting around vintage stores.

    I’d make a safe bet that No Relation Vintage on 1st ave (btwn 12th and 13th) would have a pair of suspenders or two. If not upstairs, then most likely in the downstairs room.

    Love your short-term goals, they’re more fun than New Year’s resolutions. Mine is to wear this beautiful Jennifer Zeuner ring I’ve been lusting over for months. I’m currently tracking its trip from the US to Germany then France, and I hope it’ll be mine tomorrow. Shallow, me? Nah.

    I had a similar thought up on the blog today – changes, not resolutions. Mine are varied, but I Need. To. Stop. Smoking. I won’t, but hey, it’s on the list anyway.

    To keep my apt clean, increase productivity (as in, work ;), & not compare my accomplishments with others (since I tend to feel a lot of pressure to keep up). Happy New Year!
