Happy Friday Bombers and Bombshells!
Tomorrow we’ll be waving goodbye to a very good year, and saying hello to 2012.
2011 was amazing for The Fashion Bomb with magazine shoots, the evolution of Fashion Bomb TV, and international fashion weeks.
The sky’s the limit for 2012…
…but before I get into my goals for the future, let’s see how I did with last year’s resoutions!
1. Wear more accessories
Last year I pledged to curb my conservative tendencies and pile on the jewelry. I proceeded to do it up with stacked bling bangles, Melody Ehsani baubles, and more.
2. Out with the old, in with the new.
I’ve been working diligently in 2011 to make sure my closet doesn’t overflow with unneeded items. In addition to being very generous with my sisters and mom, I’ve also practiced putting things I probably can’t wear again on Ebay. After being snapped dozens of times in the Parker dress above, to Ebay it went! It hurt my heart, but a well-edited closet is a great closet.
3. Attend more international fashion weeks.
4. Bring Back Fashion Bomb TV
For 2012, I’d love to:
1. Attend even more fashion weeks.
This year was full and exhausting with all my country hopping, but I’d still love to see what other countries and continents have to offer. I’m set to fly off to Dubai in February and will hopefully be able to swing by Japan and Nigeria this year. Let’s get it!
2. Take more fashion risks.
3. Do more TV.
You may not know this, but a long, long time ago I had dreams of doing TV. In college I completed internships at PBS and ABC, and was a page at NBC for a short time before my first full time magazine job (yes, I was like Kenneth from 30 Rock. Yes, we’re both from Stone Mountain, Georgia). At any rate, the Fashion Bomb has opened up so many opportunities to do on air stuff. I have a long ways to go, but I’d love to continue to bring the Fashion Bomb to life on the small screen.
4. Launch a lifestyle site.
And as this year ends, I want to THANK YOU for your support. 2011 has been AMAZING! From features in Essence to Ebony, Covergirl campaigns, talking fashion on BET, and meeting fabulous people, this year has been the BOMB.
I couldn’t do it without Fashion Bomb contributors Jihan, Faith, and Danielle, graphics designer Ashley, and webmaster Zillz. Much love to Fashion Bomb photographer Marta and videographer Dondy. And a BIG OLD HUG to Fashion Bomb readers. You make blogging a true joy and your comments, e-mails, and support inspire and motivate me.
Let’s keep the party going in 2012.
What are your New Year’s Resolutions?
