I don't wear as much color anymore other than black and if I do wear color its typically gray, white, blue, and mustard. I realized I only wear those colors, after purging my closet this year. I became obsessed with androgynous all black outfits and began to strip down all accessories because I didn't like the feeling of having too much stuff on. I'm even thinking about eliminating purses out of my life and just keep everything in my pocket or wallet. I also started to experiment with eye make up and have been wanting eyeshadows/eyeliners of all colors; my favorites have been orange, blue, and white but I'm excited to try more next year.

I completely changed purchasing habits this year and I hope that the quality over quantity approach continues through next year. I threw out half my closet because I've been such a hoarder and it was kinda awesome not having the remnants of $5 sales on lamé leggings and bedazzled shirts still in there from four years ago oh my god. (I don't want to talk about it.) Basically this year was narrowing down my closet to what I know I'll actually use. No prints, more black, substantial fabrics, and clothes that hovered instead of clung to the body proved to be the most important requirements for my style this year, and probably next.
