Hang Ten

*sigh* What a long week. And it's only Wednesday. You lucky americans! I guess I can't complain too much though, I get to do 2 days of CPR training for work, so I get a sort-of break. AAAAAND, I could potentially save your life now.

Anyway, I've been thinking about changing my blog layout to something more basic. I love shoes, as is quite evident with the backgroud I've chosen and header I've made, but there's been a lot of talk around the blog-o-sphere about how people prefer simpler, cleaner layouts... so it's time for a poll:

Now back to the 30x30!

5. tunic - ebay (2010)
17. skinnies - Gap (2010)
30. boots - Sirens (2010)

And yes, I've cheated a bit and put on a black cardigan! I could have taken it off for the photos, but I thought I would be honest. Plus, I've had to eliminate some pieces from my selection due to fit issues anyway.


  1. I'm changing up my blog layout, too! I'm tired of the colors and the fonts. :) And yes, I think simpler is better.

    I wish you could have a short week, too, but did you Canadians just celebrate Thanksgiving? Or is your Thanksgiving not as big of a deal as ours? Or maybe I'm wrong and it was another holiday???

    PS- I'm thinking about sharing my luck with a giveaway of my own. Maybe for a hand-knit scarf by me? What do you think?

  2. I almost forgot-- love that tunic! The colors are gorgeous on you!!

  3. I think the only issue with the layout is that it's hard to read your blog title at the top.
    That tunic is sooo pretty!

  4. I love the brown and black combo. Your glasses are adorable.

    As for the layout, change is good. I like your current layout but sometimes it can just be refreshing to do an overhaul.

  5. Ahmn... can you change mine too while you are at it? =)

    I love white background, simpler lay-outs, it makes everything stand out!



  6. I've been in your position before and I'm so glad I decided to make my layout more simple. It felt so refreshing to get rid of all the distractions and focus on my content. I do know how hard it can be to part with shoes though!
    I love this tunic. It's sheer perfection! xx

  7. I vote change is always good. Studies show that people respond better to simple and symmetrical layouts... Maybe because they are easier to process. I love the shoes though. Maybe one interesting shoe photo for your banner and solid colours for a background.

    There's a website called Deviant Art. I go to it for inspiration, there's tons of talented artist there.

    I should also change up my blog... Come holidays, I will.

  8. Hi, fellow remixer here, really liking your tunic. I'm a first time visitor, so I'm hesitant to suggest that although the shoes convey your love, the same love would come across with a simpler look.

    Good luck with the CPR training and the remaining challenge.

  9. I really like the black and brown together and those glasses make you look so cute!

  10. I love the outfit, and those boots are fabulous!! And I totally understand a love for shoes, so I have no problems with the layout! Oh, and I just started reading your blog recently too, so I hope its okay for me to comment! :)

  11. Noooo, I love the shoe banner!!! Noooo!


I'd love to hear from you!
