NEW YEAR/NEW LOOK

candycrop_frockwriter

2011: time for a clean break. I've been wanting to change the layout of this blog for what feels like a very, very long time now, and over the last few days I finally sat down and got to properly hacking away at some serious html. It's still not perfect, not by a long shot, and I still need to go back and re-format as many posts as I can stand (a project worthy of SEVERAL rainy afternoons, to be sure...) but I feel so much better already! Now we've got some space to move around, ya know? No more bumping elbows, knocking knees. I feel like standing on my tippy toes and shoving some jazz hands at the sky!

In the spirit of transformations, I bring you a photo of two dudes dressed as Ana Wintour and Grace Coddington, respectfully, from Candy Magazine found via frockwriter. Not too shabby, not too shabby at all.

Thank you! It's a photo I took two summers ago, from the roof of the second apartment I lived in here in NYC (I'm on my fourth in three and a half years now!) I think the film was quite old, which is why it turned out so pinkish.

I love this transformation, and especially the new header ! Wow, 4 apartments in 3 years... You must have a wonderful experience with moving boxes ;)
Happy new year to you !

Love the new header... it's all pink and fuzzy and makes me wish it wasn't actually so cold and generally bleh in terms of weather at the moment. x

The header is fantastic!

And I looked at the picture in this post and thought... wow Anna looks very happy and Grace looks very... smooth and manly... what's wrong with this picture?

Camille said...

Good job! I'm really happy the new look still preserves the personality of your blog, but in a more polished, spacier way. Oh, and that header, I could stare at it forever, it's so beautiful!

I'm loving the new look. The header is beautiful. The pinkish hue was a nice accident from the old film.
