There’s nothing like kicking off the new year with the sight of neighbouring office workers carrying boxes of their belongings out onto the street. Oh sweet 2009. I imagine that for most of you, the majority of the week was spent doing what you always do after the holidays – planning your next vacation. What better tonic to combat the January blues than some therapeutic daydreaming? Of course those daydreams are filled with you looking incredible in a seriously well-planned holiday wardrobe.

 You may not have realized, but resort/cruise ’09 collections are already in stores. Why are they called cruise collections, you might ask? Even though there is arguably not a whole lot of fashion going on onboard cruise ships, a resort/cruise collection is a pre-collection to spring/summer that is supposed to provide a seamless transition between seasons. Yes, that would be the glittering and shiny section of Holt Renfrew that is unfortunately not on sale. Not to fret, however, last year’s maxi-length dresses and gladiator-esque sandals still work for vacation-wear. It’s a good thing that the relaxed beachy look (even beach jewellery) stays relatively fashionable over the years. This year, I might update your vacation style and add a shrunken jean jacket or a new vacation handbag to the mix.
