All change!

Yes you may have noticed that I changed the layout of my blog, I have to say this was not intentional!! You know sometimes when you just find something new in your blogging software and you think oooh I wonder what it would look like if......

Next thing you know you've lost all your settings, your blog looks like crap and you haven't really got time to mess with it! Well that happened to me today. So I went with it, I'd like to do more but hey it looks a bit different so that's all good

Today I did something I've been meaning to for ages, I opened a shop on Etsy! I have to say I only have 4 things in there for now but I will fill it up a little. I've popped a gadget in the sidebar so you can see my wares he he!

I thought it was about time I got rid of some things I'm just hanging onto but never ever wear, I need cash not a full closet/shoe rack of stuff I don't wear or use!

First up was a stunning pair of shoes I have had FOREVER and I have never ever worn them, which is shameful!


How stunning are these? I love them but they don't suit me, they look fine side on but believe me, my ankles are just too chunky for them so they have to go, I just want to keep them in case one day I do wear them but how ridiculous is that?



It doesn't show so well but the rhinestones really sparkle *sigh*




I wanted to put these up as I was going to do a shoe post soon but these might be gone by then, if I win the lottery though, I am withdrawing them from sale, when you're rich you can have things just to look at can't you?!!!

Next up is a really stunning pair of springolaters which have like a confetti lucite front, I love love love them but again don't wear them. I've never been much of a heels wearer, I have terribly flat feet, and I know today I blame my weight but in reality even when I was at my tiniest I rarely wore heels, I would wear them on stage, but I've always been a wedgie girl when out and about as I always loved dancing!

But look at these babies, swoon!





So that's what I've been up to today! An unexpected blog rejig and the start of my etsy shop! I am going to be listing much more soon, keep an eye out on the side there, you might see something you like.

Hope you all had a great day!

I'm still trying to figure out how other bloggers are able to use the full page, instead of a strip down the middle where our posts go. I hate to have all that wasted space on one side of my blog!

LOVE the shoes! Yes, post up more goodies so we can see what you have!

hahahahhahahahhaha! I mess with settings on stuff all the time and one time I did that on my computer and then my desk top was blank. No icons, no bar at the bottom, no turn off button. I just said UH OH and shut it off with the power button. Luckily everything was back when I turned it back on

And actually your blog looks cute like this. Those are beautiful shoes!

The lucite heels, swoon! The new layout is fab, really like it x

Tasha said...

Ooh, even though it came out of an accident, I like the new look!

Those shoes are awesome. Something I always pine for, even though I'm more a flats and wedgies kind of gal. ;)

Vintage Vixen said...

I love what you've done to the blog and I want all your shoes! Sadly I have huge hooves and would have to cut my foot in half to even consider fitting into your gorgeous shoes. xxx

I've been tinkering with changing mine. I keep having these heart stopping moments where I play around with it and think eek!! Then I remember to breathe and so far I haven't lost anything (yet....)

I'm also thinking of going don the Etsy route. I'm not really familiar with it at all so I need to look into it more. Good luck though!! I hope those shoes find a lovely home x

I LIKE the new look. And the shoes. But especially the look.

You know, change is good.

Ps - hey where did my photo go? I wanted to add that this layout makes it easier to read and a nice clean look.

Glad you like the change up of the blog, it's not changed a whole lot but you should have seen it earlier eeek!

Lisa said...

Shoes: SO. CUTE. Both the sparkly ones and the gold ones. I'm so lucky I have huge feet... otherwise, who knows what kind of shoe trouble I would get myself into at these vintage sales! Liking the new blog layout, too. Good work!

Hep~Kitten said...

These shoes are so cute especially the second pair these super atomic looking!!

Loving the new lay out :)

LandGirl1980 said...

ps) at the top - should it say "... gal living her liFe"... not "liVe"? *wink*

Straight Talking Mama! said...

haha ha Big Mama no, no one has ever said that, I think it's the shoes not the feet!

Landgirl1980 OMG I hadn't noticed!!! I'm a stickler for spelling too, unbelievable I let that one through, right back to design, damn!
