When I came up with an idea of Pure Beauty series, it felt good and… scary. I had a very clear vision of what I wanted to say and achieve, but very little hope that people I reached out for, would respond and feel comfortable about being interviewed for the blog they never heard of or by a person they never met before. But they replied, shared their thoughts and a piece of their soul with me for which I will be eternally grateful.
I also want to thank you for stopping by every day to read the stories, comment and spread the word (and links) around. I honestly believe that without your support the whole experience would feel like an airless balloon, a pretty shell without substance – instead I realised that it meant something and even more – that I am not alone in my pursuit of natural, pure beauty and all its elements.
So I decided to do it all over again. I don’t know when, but it will be this year and you will certainly be the ones to know first.
I also did something else for my little blog – I finally gave it its own domain. I had one for almost a year, but was very nervous about completing the technical part and moving things around. At the end it took a few pieces of chocolate and 30 minutes to do the whole thing and now Fashioned by Love is proudly residing on www.fashionedbylove.co.uk
If you follow the blog via Bloglovin, you won’t need to change anything. I noticed that some found and followed a blog duplicate that somehow poped-up on Bloglovin’ a while ago, but the system IT fairies commonly known as Bloglovin support helped me to fix it stress- and pain-free. I hope they are going to tolerate me for a little longer, though, because I will not have to move things again from the original blog to the new Bloglovin' blog page that is now available. If you are new to Fashioned by Love and would like to stay in touch, please follow my blog with Bloglovin
And this is pretty much it for today, The only task that’s left for me to do is to introduce this stunning editorial from the September 1997 issue of Australian Vogue featuring Chrystele Saint-Louis Augustin (and gecko, the tiny lizard) photographed by Gavin Bond. I thought it reflected the idea of pure beauty perfectly…
