Grace Rock Kelly Roll (aka The Artist Formally Known as Prefer to be Demure)!
Hello, friends, readers, businesses, brands, and fellow bloggers out there in Internet-land. Notice anything different? I could ramble on about cliches about it "not being my hair" or whatever, but I'll cut to the chase! After a YEAR of wanting to change my url to this, I finally did it. Picture me tap dancing a la the scene in Dumb and Dumber when they land on the orange and blue tuxes, as well as me raising a glass to one of my best friends, Bryce, for making this change possible! (Don't you love having technically inclined people in your life?) I imagine some of you may be wondering why I changed URLs, so let me explain:
What was wrong with "Prefer to be Demure"? Nothing. The poet within in me stood by it and that fact that I largely wear mid-century vintage clothes made the title fitting. However, MANY problems arose soon after christening this blog with that name. For one, I don't exclusively dress in vintage, so the occasional ripped jeans and vast collection of metal/punk band tees probably disqualify me from being considered a "demure" dresser on the reg. Plus, I'm trying to branch out into various personality based gigs, so far most notably my comedy project Just Shair! "Demure" with my breed of comedy, plus some other stuff I want to branch out into with or without this blog, is a tough word to attach to oneself.
I wear patchwork jeans too...
Just Shair! at a baby shower recently.
Still "demure" sometimes though!!
Real life outfit from the spring!
Truth be told...as long as I'm colorfully dressed, I'm quite happy!
Throwback to when my inner Grace Kelly nearly got ousted my an inner Marilyn!
Will the site change? Nah. It's still going to be largely a personal style site, with occasional adventures in music, books, and comedy as well. The new name may give me license to try out some other stuff down the line, but for now I'm content with the balance that I've stuck so far.
Posting schedule: Historically I'd (try) to post Mon-Thurs and then do a book or cultural weekend post on Saturday. As you may have noticed, the past month or so that has not even a little bit been the case! I'm going to take a few days from posting so as many eyeballs as possible see this is on the top of my site (FYI: redirects should be working for a while, if not for forever) and put some IRL ducks in a row in the meantime. On Wednesday (July 27) I'll return, will likely post Thursday, will have the weekend off to be in a wedding, and then will attempt and hopefully succeed at my old posting schedule the following Monday. Thanks for understanding, and please stay with me! August, and maybe even next week(!), have some pretty fun stuff coming down the pipe and I've been hopping up and down like a bunny trying to contain myself since those wheels were set in motion ;)
Yay, I can act like a weirdo!!
I hope everyone is having a great weekend and I'm super anxious to officially get back in the swing of things! It's amazing how invigorating having a blog url that better suits you is! Back to the grind soon ;)
