Reader Kate is on the same topic today, and we are reminded of the importance of coming up with an annual slogan (sidebar – check out Kate’s slogan from ’07, created by “Laney W”). After the overwhelming success of “Streamline in ’09,” we’d like to uncover a slogan that has the same level of attainable success and rewards to reap. So, we’ve settled on “Find Men in 2010.” Yep. If nothing else, that should provide lots of good blog content.

Check out this DVF “Shalom” dress. Hello to royal purple and short lengths, goodbye to no waistline that makes you look plump (or in this case, like a plum). Dresses like this are so tempting, as you imagine then sparkled up with gold jewels and tall heels and on the NYE dance floor. However, like NYE, this dress looks like it might over promise and under deliever. What do you think? Does the “Shalom” mean ‘hello’ or ‘goodbye’?

We have a love hate relationship with New Years. The reason is threefold: 1) there is so much expectation to have so much fun on NYE, and expectations are a risky animal. Sure, it’s sort of fun, but it’s too much pressure. It’s most likely not going to deliver. Most occasions where crowds feel like they have license to behave however they please don’t. 2) After Thanksgiving and Christmas, all we want is bland food and a minimalist existence. Champagne and spinach dip = not welcome here. 3) We welcome a fresh start (this a resolution friendly environment), but January and February are so cold! Being out in little dresses in December just reminds you of the elements you’re about to face.
So sure, we see some good in the arrival of the new year, but we also have mixed emotions about the beloved NYE. That said, we have faith that a good NYE is possible. What are your suggestions for the best way to spend the final holiday evening of 2009?

Shop now or hold your peace—-on earth. If you are an eleventh hour shoppa, you’ve obviously missed the online shopping window, and you cannot concern yourself with price. Crowds are unavoidable. Don’t try. BUT. You. Can. Be. Redeemed. All by getting something cool. Try The Flip video. They used it on the RW/RR Reunion (potential interns, if you need it spelled out – need not apply). The Flip is currently the coolest way to film and share video. So, go get it you Eleventh Hour Shopper. Don’t flip your lid, flip anyone off, flip out, flip your car, or use the word “flipping” at any time (ever, Christmas season or otherwise). Just get The Flip. And have a Merry Christmas Eve.
