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!

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!

Loui Louise said...

look number one! i like a little more leapord in this one too!

Robyn said...

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.

lime said...

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

Jessie said...

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

emily @ emily posts said...

I like the jewelry of 3, pose of 2 and background of 1. in 2, theres already some blue and orange. I love the ring and gold in 3.

High-Heeled Foot in the door said...

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,

:)

#1
I like the two bracelets and the pulled back shot.

Dobbygirl said...

Look #2 - LOVE!!!

Diana said...

I love the ring in look #3 and the bracelet in look #2. That would be my fav. combo

liz @ bon temps beignet said...

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

Emily, Timeless Paper said...

Number 2 reminds me the most of you and your style! The photo is also staged the best out of the three. Looking forward to seeing the new site!

Averill said...

Hmmm -- I say #2 -- but I love the orange ring/turquoise bracelet combo!

Morgan Lee said...

love love love look #2! :)

Christine Cranford said...

Love, love, love number 3!

twolovelyspaces said...

Number 2 all the way

Casa Bella said...

Look #2, but maybe #3 with the orange ring? Beautiful pics!

Jenn said...

I love look number 2. I love a orange/blue color combo -- it really pops! :)

Shannon @ Sit.Relax.Gossip. said...

#1 is my favorite...can't wait to see the new blog! Genius idea about including a resource guide!

Jessica said...

Loving number 2!! I love orange and blue (may be because I'm a huge Auburn fan) but it really pops.

lifeonprairiecreek said...

#3 is just perfect

Emily said...

#1 is my favorite. Not too much but gives a good story!

Anonymous said...

Look 2!

Jane said...

I love look #1! It looks the most polished yet natural.

Jane @ The Borrowed Abode said...

Guess I'm an odd one out, but I love #3 the most - as far as jewelry is concerned.

Helena - A Diary of Lovely said...

love #3 I like the hand position

SteFay said...

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!

katiedid said...

# 2!!! Love the blue and orange combo, epecially with all of the other colors and patterns. Fun!

hana said...

where is that leopard fabric from? it's delish. #2 i think.

southerninspiration said...

#2!!

Suzanne

Lavender and Lilies said...

Number 1 definitely

Anonymous said...

#2 No doubt. I think the lucite braclet (even though I love it!) causes a wierd reflection in #1.
I'll follow you whatever your name :)

Third Avenue Style said...

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!

Hana,

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.

Freshly A-Stoot said...

I like the 1st one best!

Jen of Made By Girl said...

traci zeller designs said...

Number 2!

Jade @ Flip Flops + Pearls Design said...

Number 2...Camila, I am so excited for you!!!

Meet Vanessa said...

I like #1 best - the gold bracelette combo with the ring look best and I love the leopard!

-Kasey said...

I like number 2. It's the one that *Pops* the most and just overall seems more fun :)

Jenn @ Living Luxe for Less said...

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!!!

Hello Lover... said...

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!

Meredith said...

i love look #1 and i can't wait to see your new blog unveiled!

LindsB said...

I like #1- and PS, you are the BIGGEST TEASE EVER!!

CBelle said...

Hamptontoes said...

Number 2 is perfection!

Michaela Noelle said...

number 2! The complimentary colors (blue and orange) pop each other and make the other color appear even brighter. So bold and fun!

Melissa said...

i love them all but number one is my fav. especially because i can gaze at that awesome gold bracelet!! where is that from? let me in on the goods! ;)

Karen said...

I love #2. The colors match so well with the rest of the picture.

susan's buzz said...

Look number 1 :)

adorninc said...

Look #2!

Kari said...

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

DOEHLER DAYS said...

#2 is my favorite

jessica o'brien said...

Look #1 jewelry is best, but it's not my favorite shot/hand position. Very cool!

Katie said...

first one for sure!

Anonymous said...

Number two all the way. Best composition by far.

Design Esquire said...

Chris p said...

#2 all the way!

High-Heeled Foot in the door said...

Thanks for all the help!

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.

:)

Mackenzie {Design Darling} said...

Number 1!

Kathysue said...

Definitely #2!!

Els Manning said...

gotta go with 2! Looking good lady!

Simony said...

I loved #2 because of the color and size of the jewelry.
Can't wait to see the final work.

Julia said...

I like the jewelry in look 3 but the layout of look one...

{Arianna Belle} said...

All so fabulous (very kate spade-esque!) but I think #2 is my favorite! :-)

Save the Date for Cupcakes said...

I love look #1, but I'd have to say look #2. Such a hard choice~ they're all so gorgeous!

Kim said...

I like the composition of #2, but I still like your current drawing with the little doggie!

Kate at Dream To Life said...

I LOVE number 1! It catches my eye every time!

Erin P said...

The first one!!! SOOOO gorgeous
Look #1 is totally a winner.

workinggirl said...

I love look #3! Totally classic.

Anonymous said...

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