Happy New Year! Can you believe that 2012 is here? And already it promises to be an exciting year for both fashion AND music. Today’s Sew & Tell guest is the perfect guide to help us look back and remember the trends and style developments of 2011, as well as anticipate what’s coming for 2012. Mary O’Regan is the senior fashion editor for Metro Magazine, a publication dedicated to all the great culture in the Twin Cities region. In addition, Mary maintains a fabulous blog called Art of Wore, and serves as editor-in-chief for several bridal publications. As evidenced by her sharp, incisive, instructive, witty writing and beautiful blog, Mary is plugged directly into the pulse of current fashion, and on today’s show, she’ll be talking about fashion in 2011, 2012, what it takes to develop a successful fashion blog, and she’ll even share her own fashion New Year’s resolution.

I also have a playlist that I’m super excited about today, filled with my top tracks from the past year. It’s unabashedly weighted towards hauntingly beautiful, slightly sad music, but… what can I say? That’s what I love. So you’ll be hearing this year’s releases from Little Scream, Bon Iver, Timber Timbre, Levek, Tom Waits, and more. Turn up the volume, throw open your closet doors, and get ready for a brand new year of looking gorgeous.
