Sneak Peek #2: New Blog Look

Well I've already shared with you all a little sneak peek of the new look of the blog and the transition to switching over to Effortless Style.

Today I have another little sneak peek you see the new blog is going to have a lot more resources for my lovely readers aka all of you. One of the new additions is a resource guide. It's my little black book of vendor favorites. You'll be able to access to my list of go-to's for wallpaper, paint, artwork, fabric, lighting, furniture, accessories, window treatments and floor coverings. I hope the guide will be helpful to all of you who love decor, but can't hire a decorator.

So I did a little photo shoot to add the perfect eye candy element to that page!

Look #1:

Look #2:

Look #3:

What's your favorite jewelry combo? I can't pick just one!



Blogger Felicity said...

Look #2, for sure. Or maybe I should say hands down... I like the repetition of the blue and orange in the picture, and your hand position looks the most natural.

A mix of all three - the background from 2, gold bracelet added from 1 and the white ring from 3. Also, what if you had a little bit of text on the notebook? A cute one word saying, or maybe a picture of a high heel (outlined in white)? Congrats on the new look!

I like the last one. The bracelet in #2 gets a bit lost. The jewelry in the last seems to be a bit more restrained and classic.

LOVE the jewelry combo from #1, but wish your hand was turned more like #2, so we could see that fab orange ring!

As much as I love the bracelet in #2 I am going to have to go with #1.

Thanks for the helps guys! I have a bunch of different shots with each one so I have some hand options to pick from.

I'm having the graphic designer put copy on the black book so don't worry it won't remain blank,

I like # 1 but the hand looks kinda strained...I think the hand in # 3 looks more natural. Imho

Love #1, but like many other people mentioned the hand position in 2 looks better. Did you just happen to have all this stuff laying around, and then jewelry to match? That's impressive!

#2 No doubt. I think the lucite braclet (even though I love it!) causes a wierd reflection in #1.

I love the orange flower & turquoise bangle - but let's face it on those glamorous hands they all look fabulous...

Thanks for all the help!

You can imagine how hard it was to hold the book and have it look right. Look 1 was at the very beginning hence the the not great hand pose.

Once I got to Look 3 the last one I finally figured out a way to hold it.

I liked the look of two bangles, but most of my bracelets are large bangles so it's hard to place them on the tabletop. It was quite a process, but I love the way they looked.

Look 2 was actually my least favorite, but if you guys love it then perhaps it's the winner. I can't make a decision for anything so I sent it to Carolynn (web designer) and told her to pick!


That leopard fabric is my absolute favorite. It's the perfect scale and color and price (It was only $10 a yard) I bought it at Joanns a while back and they haven't gotten it back in stock for months. So sad. I only have one tiny square left.

I like them all and each jewelry combo is beautiful, but I like #1 the best because it shows the most of your design inspiration and resources...but honestly, I don't think you can go wrong with any of them!!!

Number 2! But I think having the gold elephant and whatever that orange box is a little closer to your hand will make it a perfectly styled picture - love the colors!

#2 has the best colors & position of the hand, a little less dead space in the cobalt blue area & it'd be perfect.

I think I'm going to try and do another little photo shoot with option 1 and then see which I like better.

I love the bracelet in option 1. It was actually a thrift store and I get a million compliments on it. Every time someone asks where it's from.

#3 (hands in 1 and 2 weren't my favorite, and jewelry in 3 is slightly more understated which is always nice).
