Newcomers to the (Ef)Face: Check These Out!

New Year = New Layout

What do y'all think? 

This new layout seems much more congruent...the other one had sepia and black and white, teal and maroon...It was kinda hard on the eyes...just wasn't feeling it anymore.

While I'm at it, I'll probably start posting different kinds of, I've been dabbling in decorating my home, and so far I'm pleased with the results. 
I think I'd like to share them with you...  :) 
Would you mind, dear readers?  Let me know in the comments!

But before I got off on any more tangents, here are the outfit photos I promised (in the midst of yesterday's 2012 mash-up):

This outfit is making me laugh while I'm putting it against my new layout...such completely different facets of my personality are all mushed together!  But, hey, the ability to design and love both a grey-pink-sweetly-elegant blog layout and a gold-red-plaid-in-your-face-prepster ensemble makes a girl more interesting, don't you think?
Looking at these pictures, my constant inspiration--Audrey Hepburn--came to mind.  The sweater/men's shirt/high-waters/loafers combo was a thing she would do...but I have a bit more drama in my outfit! plaid and metallics...  That means it gives a nod to Audrey without being too copycat-ish.

Shoes and Sweater: Rock & Republic for Kohl's || Pants: Wal*Mart || Shirt: American Eagle Outfitters || Bag: thrifted || Headband: Bangles and Bags || Necklace: old

    1. I love your blog's layout! :) I'd hold off on changing it for awhile (but don't let me tell you what to do, either! you gotta do what you feel).

  4. I love the new layout, I like that its more simple, helps your content stand out. Love your shoes btw!

    1. Wanna know something? I hope you don't find it creepy...but I re-did my blog mostly because when I went to check yours out, your layout inspired me! :)

  5. I love the gold and red together! And those plaid shoes are the icing on the cake! I hardly ever wear flats because I feel stumpy in them, but I think if I saw those, I'd have to buy. They are so cute! I love this look! <3

  13. Ooo this outfit really does give off an Audrey Hepburn vibe! It's probably the cigarette pants and those flats. And I'm LOVING that gold shimmery sweater, it's gorgeous. And I love the blog design- the background is very pretty, and I think it'd definitely be fun to get some home decor tips from you :)
