New Years resolution? Buy more! My bank account says no, but my wardrobe says yes. With all the post-holiday sales going on, maybe the bank account won't quibble too much:

1. Imelda's and Louie's Shoes - OMG I love this store. Get ready for 20-70% off on selected styles from January 6th (today!) through January 17th.

2. Garnish - If you're a bride-to-be or like Liz Lemon from 30Rock and feel the need to buy a wedding dress in preparation for the inevitable marriage proposal from the inevitable hunky boyfriend that you will no doubt acquire this year, then head over to Garnish! They're discontinuing their bridal line, and that means 50% of all wedding dresses, from now till January 17th. AND they're having a contest this month to come up with the Garnish tagline, with a $500 gift certificate prize! Send entries to
