'09 Wish List: Buying What You Didn't Get For X-mas!

With just two weeks left in 2008, many people tend to re-evaluate the circumstances of their life before the dawn of the New Year. A New Year is a common time to reinvent yourself, banish bad habits, and start over. I personally feel like it's bad luck to stop bad habits January 1st; it's almost like you are setting yourself up to fail. Instead, I would rather start a few weeks before, kind of like today. So I ask myself: "Who does Poppy want to be in 2009?" Unfortunately I do not have the answer to that (although Mrs.Ryan Adams would be a fine start for me).  I do know, however, what I want to wear in 2009, and I am internet stalking items that I want to swoop up if Santa did not get everything on my wish list. Because, like most people, I plan on tightening my grip on my wallet this New Year, I am hoping to buy things that refresh existing items in my wardrobe, to work with what I have, and make it feel current and new - oh so very 2009. The first item on my wish list is an animal print scarf. Because I currently have nothing like it in my closet, it will definitely feel new and make the existing jackets, blouses, and t-shirts seem rejuvenated and more exciting.

The scarf will pair perfectly with my existing  winter wardrobe and will also go nicely with Spring's trends of big prints and pastel hues. It is truly a smart buy that I can feel satisfied with (and Poppy 2009 Redux will agree).
