What's Your Fashion Resolution for 2020?

What's your fashion resolution for 2020?
What's your fashion resolution for 2020? It's a new year and a new decade. Perhaps it's time to do things a little differently, let your inner self shine a little more brightly. We hear so much about sustainability, inclusivity, and social responsibility in our current era. How do we continue to create fun and freedom through fashion?
At a recent clothing show held at the Jacob Javits Center in NYC, attendees and exhibitors were asked to write their answer to the fashion question on a post-it note and attach it to a board in the lobby of the convention hall. Here is a sampling of the answers posted there to the question 'What's your fashion resolution for 2020?':
- Continue to focus on USA made brands and give back to the community;
- Looking and feeling amazing in 2020 - us and our customers!;
- Give back to society and make the world more colorful;
- To continue to motivate others;
- Be more bold;
- For everyone to start wearing red clothes and not work out clothes;
- Build my brand to encourage more women to be classy.
Moreover, I asked several exhibitors at the recent outdoor show held at Kalahari in the Poconos and received these responses to the fashion resolution question:
- To fit in a size L (Adam from prAna);
- To fit in my clothes (Jayson from Spyder);
- Get more leggings because they're more comfortable than jeans (Fran from Killtec);
- Feel comfortable and confident (Nick from Kari Traa);
- Stop living in just tee's and sweatshirts (Doug from Kuhl).
I couldn't resist asking the fashion resolution question to the staff at FL Crooks & Co so here goes:
Audrey: Be a little more bold and outgoing with the colors and fashions.
My daughter is always telling me to 'Throw a splash of color in';
Dar: Wear more of my clothing from my closet ;
Gayle: Try on. Try on. Try on. (Shop at FL Crooks & Co., but I do that all the time so it's
not a resolution.)
Jim: Newness! Be bold!;
Leah: Step out of my comfort fashion zone;
Lydia: Keep in mind Mr. Pigeon's mantra - "We dress to honor one another";
Patrick: Clean out my closet. For every item I buy, it's time to move one item on to some-
one who can use it.
Regina: I need new clothes; my goal is to buy outfits - something you can wear together;
Rhianna: Quality over quantity;
Dar and Rhianna had fun meeting the designer Veronica M. at the New York clothing show, and Veronica's fashion resolution was to design clothing that everyone shopping at FL Crooks & Co. would be pleased and delighted with. Stop by FL Crooks & Co. in downtown Clarion, and let us help you hone your unique sense of style in the New Year 2020.
Fashion forward into 2020!

A Toast to Century Old Stores including FL Crooks & Co. of Clarion, PA!!

Asked to name the favorite hobby of Americans, you might say gardening, sports, music or … shopping! Shopping is an art and a science with some even calling it retail therapy. And in spite of the monumental changes in the way shopping has evolved over recent years with the internet and Amazon, shopping in physical stores is here to stay. 
MR Magazine and the Chicago Collective, a Men's Clothing Show for retailers, are joining together to honor more than three dozen men's specialty stores in America which have been in business for 100 years and more. While maintaining their core values, these clothing stores have delivered great product, stellar customer service, and a passion for what they do with style and panache. Having been in business since 1905, FL Crooks & Co. of Clarion finds itself among this distinguished list of honorees.

"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful." -Norman Vincent Peale
Every season has its charm, but Christmas can stand head and shoulders above the rest as the most wonderful time of the year.

Do you have a favorite Christmas memory, tradition, gift that stands out in your memory?
It's a Merry Christmas...

The earth has come alive with a vibrancy of rich sights, smells, and tastes to quicken the senses before the winter settles in. As we meditate on this beauty surrounding us, may our souls feel gratitude for the blessings in our lives.
