This will be the last blog post* on Fashion Under $100.
But don't worry, I'm not going away, I'm just moving to a new location. From now on, you can find me at What the Frock?, my new fashion and lifestyle blog.
I've been blogging on Fashion Under $100 for almost four and a half years, and it's been a blast, for the most part. But, after I had to take a hiatus before my wedding, it was sort of hard to come back. The blog started to feel more like a chore. So I did a lot of soul-searching and finally determined why I was no longer having fun with this blog.
It was because I've been feeling limited in what I can post here.
By calling the blog "Fashion Under $100," I was limiting myself to a budget that, in this economy, is harder and harder to stick to. And I felt like, by working with such a strict budget, I was sometimes forced to use retailers and/or items that I didn't really endorse.
The format is limiting as well - by copying celeb outfits and styling looks for readers, I never had much of an opportunity to convey my own style.
And finally, the blog subject matter is limiting, because I'm interested in more than just fashion.
And so, What the Frock? was born. I'm still going to post some celeb looks for less, and I'll still take stylist requests, but I'll no longer be sticking to the "under $100" budget. Don't worry, I am a cheapskate at heart, and I'll try my best to keep all of the outfits at a reasonable price. But this way, I can be more creative and put together looks that aren't just good for the wallet, but are high quality as well.
But I'm also going to be posting other things. What kind of things, you ask? Who knows? That's the fun of it: with this new format, I can post anything I want! The idea of it makes me giddy! Food, entertainment, lifestyle, decor, anything that tickles my fancy! But first and foremost, What the Frock? will still be a fashion blog at heart. And I'd love to hear any suggestions you may have for content and any other features.
So click on over to What the Frock?, update your bookmarks, blog links, and RSS readers, and if you don't mind, please spread the word!
Thanks to everyone who has visited and supported Fashion Under $100 over the years. You're the best!
Signing off (sort of),
*not really, because I'll be posting here every so often to remind y'all to join me at What the Frock! But this is the last bit of actual "content." Same diff!
