Hello January! Hello 2010! Did everyone have a festive New Years? I'm so excited to be welcoming in a new year (and my birth month!), I have a lot of plans for myself and lot of plans for Orchid Grey. Have you all been thinking about your resolutions? It's a new decade too don't forget, any plans for the next ten years? I know it's a lot to think about!

Here are some of my goals for the next year...
1. Get (and stay) organized! My computer desktop is a mess and I'm really due to clean out my filing cabinet, time to hop to it!
2. Be smarter with my money! This is something I always say I'm going to do, and this year it has to happen!
3. Make this blog bigger and better! I have some exciting things planned (including that elusive hair post I've been procrastinating on!)
4. Find more opportunities to show and promote my artwork! This includes (finally) getting a professional website!

And some goals for the decade...
1. Get a job in fashion! I am always telling people to do what they love and it's time to take my own advice!
2. Get married! Preferably to Chris, hopefully it won't take ten years, haha! Ahem...

So my beautiful readers, I want to know your resolutions! What are your plans for 2010?

Have a safe and happy weekend!

P.S. Check out how the beautiful Tieka and Jen styled this same Rodarte for Target dress, we're style triplets!

Great photos on this post and I love the pattern mixing with the dress and belt! I look forward to the hair post and seeing more of your art featured (or on a separate site).

My goals for the next decade... my husband and I want to live in Europe for part of it and we're going to start multiplying at some point. :)

This look is so fun. I need to get better with my money as well! Sigh.
Happy 2010!

Little Ocean Annie said...

I love the first picture! I was not impressed with the dress on the hanger, so I skipped over it (did get 6 pieces, though!), but seeing it on you and the other lovelies makes me want to hunt it down now! Happy new year, dear. Looking forward to more of your posts!

Little Ocean Annie said...

PS: your last goal reminds me of the month before my husband asked me to be his girlfriend. I said to him, "this summer, I want to have a boyfriend. Whether that's you or not is up to you." I was joking, of course, but we always joke about how I threatened him into dating me!

Jess said...

LOVE that rodarte dress - all the best in 2010 sweetie :)

chicfaced said...

That's the dress I picked up too--can't get over the cute, cute bow. My resolutions are to work on bettering old friendships and start selling baked goods at my neighborhood's farmers' market. Best of luck in 2010!

futurelint said...

Love the addition of the leopard belt! My only resolution is the organization thing... I really want to stay on top of the to-do lists before they get so intimidatingly long that I don't even want to start!

Jasmine said...

I love that you changed out the belt! Looks terrific!
