Resolution #1

2013 is coming to a close and resolutions can be funny things. My trick is to set attainable goals; small little wisdoms to live by that are easy to follow through with everyday. In leu of the new year, I’m counting down with resolutions that are easy to stand by. Ever.

Simple enough, but in a world of fast fashion and flash sales the cheaper option can be quite appealing. If you want something bad enough, it’s worth searching and waiting for. Settling for anything can put anyone in a very unhappy place.

Start small. Save the money you would spend on those knock-off Charlotte Olympia kitty flats towards a real pair. Maybe you have the perfect, little black dress in the back of your mind. Instead of getting that one that is not exactly what you’re looking for, but it’s on sale, hold out! The perfect fabric, style, and cut is out there somewhere and worth every penny.

Thankful Thursday

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’d like to dedicate this post to all of my readers and followers. I’m so thankful that I have you; the reason I write and continue to think up something new everyday. You all have made Poor Jessie Ann possible and I certainly don’t know where this little blog of mine would be without you. Have a warm and wonderful Thanksgiving, everyone!

I also wanted to give a very special thank you to my new friend over at La Juliet! I had a great time talking fashion, jewelry, and blogging! See the interview here and while you’re at it, check out their jewelry market place!
