style: less impulse purchases, spending less time with "online fashun" in general, losing all of this holiday chub

not style: to call my parents more often, spend some more time with my grandma, talk to a therapist

Quit it with the boring "plain shorts + 'Enfield Tennis Academy' tee + rod lavers" thing. Get my wardrobe in shape for a hot climate and grow my hair out while I'm still a filthy backpacker. Run more, lift more, eat more, read more, write more. Move to LA.

wear my stuff in some more. most of my shoes look way too new. feel like now I've got most of the clothes I want so all that's really left is to wear them in. will likely be making waaaay less purchases this year.

also would like to pare down my pants choices. I'm always gonna have tons of random tees but I really don't think I need more than a few pairs of jeans. light wash, black jeans that get worn in, black jeans that stay black, maybe a gray pair (unsure), old raws, and newer raws. I don't really wear chinos that often so I think cutting down on all the stuff I don't love should help give me more closet space + less mental clutter. I really only wear a rotation of like five pairs of pants anyway, and it's not a very balanced rotation either, so this shouldn't be too difficult. more difficult will probably be the question of "should I donate this or would it be worth it to sell it?"

I also sort of dream of being able to put together an outfit in under a minute and be happy with how I look. most days I just do flannel/band tee/jeans/sneakers, but I can get pretty fussy with dumb details. don't like the colors of that flannel + that tee. this tee has a sliiightly scoopier neckline than the other so I don't want this slimmer flannel but then the colors are too samey so I have to switch shoes. don't think this band tee makes sense to wear with boots. I want these shoes to start getting more worn in so I should switch tees to accommodate them. I already did light wash trucker + black jeans two days this week; it's just lazy to do it again. etc.

I'm sure I'll think of more stuff but now I have to board a plane so might come back to edit this but maybe not

Get below 12% bodyfat It's so much easier to dress yourself when you're not concerned about hiding extra weight and are comfortable with your body. Also I'm storing more fat in my face now than a couple years ago, so get rid of that.

Find a hairstyle I like Such a freaking struggle to be happy with my hair. No longer seeing my barber because he messed up my haircut in a big way last time, and I can't keep paying $30 for a haircut that may or may not be what I want. Going to grow my hair out while I decide what I want to do with it. Have since invested in beanies.

Clean out my closet Not a huge deal, and it's nowhere near hoarder-level, but there is definitely a bunch of clothes which I haven't worn in years that I've been putting off donating.

Develop a style and wardrobe that I'm proud of Right now, even though I do have some nice pieces, my overall wardrobe and the outfits I wear on a day-to-day basis aren't that exciting to me or reflect what I want to achieve style-wise.

Design and make my own clothing: Tired of not being able to afford or find the exact type of piece I want.

Be like Brandon Babenzien: Have that style thats a cross between a Wes Andersen movie and New York urbanite.

smiles, both the hat and the vans can be seen in the lookbook here, i've been eyeing them for months http://www.dazeddigital.com/fashion/art ... nskiy-ss14

and as it transpires the vans dropped yesterday at number3store, costing more than i anticipated and they've sold out already... :( hopefully they'll be stocked elsewhere

1. exercise

3. start ebaying (both buying and selling) diligently again
4. dress however you want to no matter how odd you look in comparison to your friends
5. don't ever get straight bangs again

also non-fashion related, convince parents to get a shiba inu

yeah 350 euros for vans is pretty steep even by CDG standards.

Should come to LN-CC I hope.

Speaking of which, it's been six months or so? How go new years resolutions?

I guess I didn't make any because this thread happened during my C-T hiatus.

Have bought one more pair since January but the main point was working out what I like in footwear and that's something i've become more and more comfortable with. Hopefully my Dries loafers will be a success in this same vein.

Do strongly regret not buying the cracked patent leather Margiela derbies though, those haunt me.

Syeknom of Christmas Past wrote:Deeper focus on "letting go" and fully enjoying my clothing.


Feel quite successful in this one - I barely give a toss anymore if I look Good in my clothes and instead focus on wearing stuff in a way that I enjoy and that hopefully comes together as a cohesive thought.

Syeknom of Christmas Past wrote:More reason to wear clothes


Huge success here but, regrettably, largely due to the dissolution of my relationship and the dissolution of my spine. I've had a lot of free time to wear casual stuff in different situations and from a wardrobe-personal-growth-syeknom-the-consumer-slash-victim perspective it's been very beneficial. In broader, life happiness terms less so.

For one, I'm aiming to continue what I started towards the end of last year and try to distance myself from constantly playing video games and refreshing the same pages over and over with my free time, and instead devote it towards semi-productive things that creative me enjoys, be it writing, reading, sketching, or coding.


Well I don't play almost any video games anymore, but a lot of that time has just gone to hanging out in care-tags irc and watching netflix.

Hoping to keep up with the gym, as it's kind of slacked this December, and hit 200 lbs before cutting for the summer. Which will probably mean most of my clothes won't fit very well.


Actually hit 200. Cutting this summer started off well but tapered off, currently hovering around 185ish. Want to hit <180 by August.

Plan out a perfect capsule/minimal wardrobe that I can start building towards, given I'll start having a decent income come summertime and my internship.


Yeah this didn't happen. Nor do I have the funds for doing anything like that. Sorry past rjbman.

Do super good at my internship and come away with a full job offer before my senior year (assuming that the work is what I hope it is); job security would be a huge stress relief.


Have been told that I'm doing a very good job, and I'm pretty confident I'll get a full-time offer. Not sure that I'll take it; want to feel around and see if there are better opportunities first (hope that's not a bad thing to do, I really do enjoy working where I am)

work out more and eat more are my goals as my uni experience so far is turning me into a skeleton which looks odd for someone with relatively broad shoulders.

working out and gaining (smiling) should have started earlier

with my most recent clothing purchases im pretty pleased with my wardrobe currently, and i'm not really going to be able to afford much more in the coming months, but i feel my style will return to a better level as recently what i've been wearing has gotten lazy and uninspiring.

v happy with my own style, am at a point right now where i can roll out of bed throw shit on and still feel cool - even receive compliments. First part went well until i discovered dries CURSE U SYEK

also beard please

style-wise, i want to to fine tune where i'm at right now. i do feel like my wardrobe is lacking to support the style i want to achieve. also need to allocate my money a lot better whether it be for school, food, or clothes. prioritizing the important aspects of my life is most definitely something that needs to happen at this point in my life.

maybe i'll spend a little less time looking at clothes all day and start living a bit.

for myself outside of fashion, i want to get a little healthier and try to keep my apartment at least a little bit clean. i have been doing some regular exercise in an attempt to shed off some lbs.

Get an item (used) from my personal big three that I can/will wear:

* Carol Christian Poell

* vlaada chvatil

* Carpe Diem/Continues (Maurizio Altieri)

Boro-ize/patchwork my Vans

Get a stronger S/S wardrobe

More Devoa

Compromise less

Buy something(s) in a striking color, but will still work in my wardrobe (white or red outerwear/gloves/belt/boots)

Work out more, but not necessarily gain muscle mass that will make me larger

Non-fashion/style: pull up those damn computer science grades

2015:

1. Only buy clothes that I love, period.
2. Use more interesting color palettes
3. Find a silhouette / fit that works for me and then have fun with it
4. Get better shoes

Non-fashion:

1. Cut down on time wasted on my laptop
2. Read & write every day
3. Eat more healthily

Still working on those, I guess.
