I feel like I need to write you a little speech and plan it accordingly. I’m taking a cue from Modern Family’s Cameron and Mitchell and I’d like for you to imagine I am wearing calming, earthy tones. Take a deep breath, open your eyes and take a look at her new look!
Shiny new header! Pretty new colours!
Retro vibe! FUN NEW THINGS!
There were so many things going on behind the scenes that the blog took longer than anticipated to get up and back online but the only reason for that was because I changed my mind (the original concept was RED and LOTS OF IT) and then when the beautiful Emma would do something, I would umm and ahhh and then change my mind again.
What can I say? I am a perfectionist.
Emma was a beautiful soul to work with and I hope she actually hasn’t lost any hair because I swear she hates me and I probably made her drink too much wine in the process of making this blog. She has been kind and accepting and she lets me vent about everything (from being hungry, upset, the weather…) and then makes my little sketches into actual things. It was amazing.
I will continue to sing Emma’s praises as I continue to get used to my new look. The logo was inspired by Las Vegas, neon signs, Palm Springs and my new (and unhealthy) addiction to 1950s pin up. I spent hours looking at neon signs and old hotels from the 1950s, the prints the fabrics were on the furniture from sleazy hotels and then I slapped them all into a design. Well…it was a sketch but then I played around with Emma’s amazing work until I found something that WORKED for me (and now I love it).
The colour scheme is something new and fresh and a touch girly for me but it works and I love it. At first it was all about pale blue, then purple, then I was like: Closet Confessions has always been about green and purple (remember my original design by Natalie? I love that!). But not she is grown up, she is shiny and new and I love her.
Some new things about the blog will include video. I know I have been saying that for ages but this time I totally mean it. It won’t be awesome at first, but I want to try something new and reach out to new things! I’ll try my hand at reviews and I hope you can put up with my accent and my weird faces!
I hope that you find the new look as awesome as I do, and I would love to know what you think! Is it easy to find the things you want? Can you easily reply to posts or find pictures of my outfits?
Please don’t be shy! I need to know!
Thank you for being patient and waiting for the blog to relaunch!
I hope you love it and continue to follow my fashion journey!
