It's funny how life changing experiences tend to happen when you least expect it. I started this blog when I was 16 and totally unsure of myself. I was still in high school, and I wasn't even sure if I would enjoy fashion beyond just flipping through magazines and taking out books on design in the library. Two and a half years later, my readers and this blog have helped me realize that my hopes and aspirations lie within the fashion industry, and that journey has been reflected through the dozens of posts I have made through the years. With purpose comes change, and now that I have come full-circle and have returned to New York, I have decided to add a new chapter to this story of self-discovery by revamping the blog's image a bit!
I have decided to change the blog's name to something a little more personal, de Lune, which in French means of the Moon. Any Claire or Clare or Clair out there can probably tell you they've been called "Clair de Lune" at least once in their life after the Debussy piano piece. I have been given that nickname by my family since I was little, and I have decided to use it as a reflection of what this blog means to me and as an exploration of who I am and what fashion means to me and to my readers!
Special thanks to Marisa Todd over at Stylelist for helping me with the layout revamp!
Rest assured, I will not be changing the content of my style posts. It's basically going to be the same blog, but with a change of scenery! Whenever you type in faboo or faboomadness.blogspot.com, you'll just get redirect to De Lune. The name change is more symbolic and I hope you guys like it!
All of you, all of my readers, have shown me what makes me happy more than anything, and it is the greatest gift I have ever been given. Every email, comment, encounter on the street, what have you, has been an unworldly joy. All of you, seriously, are the best.
If anyone has any comments about anything or questions about applying to college, I am more than happy to help out and lend some words. You guys can reach me any time at Morningbell@roadrunner.com
I'm still working on revamping the layout, but let me know how you guys think about the change! I'm excited to see what you all think!
Meet ya at the next post!
