Happy new year everyone! We are back from holidays and it gave us plenty of time to reflect on 2010 and decide on our 2011 style resolutions. We have so many! … be daring, wear more accessories, look to our muses, be prepared, achieve extra height, inject colour, wear more local designers … We are sure we’ll think of more as the year unfolds and we are even more inspired. What are your new year style resolutions?
