Just like last year and the year before that, we've tapped a handful of influential Angelenos to weigh in on 2014's greatest hits and misses. We've already highlighted LA's best stores, coolest brands, and most-wanted shops, top 'hoods, best buys, regrettable purchases, fashion descriptions, worst trends, and LAFW fate. Our final question: What's your 2015 fashion resolution?

Paul C. Witt, Wittmore owner: "Buy less and better quality. I am converting to the uniform wardrobe."
Gabriela Artigas, Gabriela Artigas Jewelry designer: "Wear more white T-shirts."
Lucy Akin, Super Street founder: "Bring Uggs back—just kidding! I would say to invest in more pieces that I'll covet forever. I'm saving up my money for the Louis Vuitton Petite Malle bag (above) right now."
Kelsi Smith, Stylesmith blogger: "Invest more, buy less. It was the same for 2014 but unfortunately for my bedroom floor and my bank account this turned into invest more, buy more. But resolutions are made to be broken, right?"
Heather Lipner, Clashist founder: "Wear less army green."
Shareen Mitchell, Shareen Vintage owner: "Buy only classics and the best quality."
Jayne Min, Stop It Right Now blogger: "Invest only in timeless pieces I'll love forever. No frivolous spending."
