Most of you are thinking “Why the name change?”. The honest truth is that I was getting pigeon holed into something that I’m not and was being passed up for opportunities that I wanted and would have been a good fit for. I’m hoping this will open doors for me and let marketers/PR companies/organizations know that I’m a good fit for their next project. I’ve done my research and everyone who’ve I’ve talked to told me to make the change so here I am sort of starting over again.
The aesthetic of my new blog will mirror my own and be everything I need/want. It will be home. I’m working with ohksocialmedia.
Why “Falling in Style”? Well it was hard to find a blog name that I loved, that was me and wasn’t taken. This new name resonated with me specifically because the two times I’ve appeared on TV as a spokesperson I’ve been “falling with style” and managed to pick myself up and persevere. You’ll have to wait for the full stories when the new blog launches. I also have visions a la Mad Men of me falling off a skyscraper in a beautiful dress falling gracefully and surviving. Someone else compared it to the phrase “falling in love” and I like that as well.
Now to what I’m wearing…
Shorts & Shoes, Joe Fresh. Blouse, LOFT. Handbag, Coach (old). Necklace, c/o Cocoa’s Jewelry (sold out, similar idea here). Bracelet, Ann Taylor. Watch, Michael Kors (old).
I’m becoming obsessed with twitter again and looking for new followers and for new people to follow. Let me know @IvaGrbesic
I’m Co-Hosting the “Way We Wear Shorts”. Some really great idea.
