Letter from the Editor: Back to Basics

Thursday, July 8, 2010

Changes are in store for Dream Sequins.

You may have noticed that I changed the sidebar a little-- simplified things a bit. As a result of our Beauty and Accessories Editors' busy schedules, I've decided to take things back to basics. Starting today, Dream Sequins will be a solo operation, the way it started when I launched the blog nearly two years ago.

This blog started as a way for me to communicate about the things that moved me on a daily basis- independent fashion brands and boutiques. And while I expanded the blog to make room for beauty and accessories, I also started pursuing a career in social media and PR. Then I moved jobs, and with it, the blog slowed down. But I've missed blogging, and the fashion blogging community. So I'm proud to announce my return. And I'm taking it back to basics.

While this blog will continue to highlight interesting brands, with some shopping detours in between, I'd like to feature more style diary posts and observations on a more intimate scale. So while I can't promise that the writing will be phenomenal, I can promise that it will be 100% authentically mine.

Thank you, dear friends, readers, lurkers, for visiting my wee blog, and for being patient with me these past few weeks. It's certainly been an interesting ride so far. Now if you don't mind, things are about to get a little more personal...

And a special note to Tamara, our Beauty Editor and Denise, our Accessories Editor: thank you for your dedication and your wonderful contributions to the blog. We had a wonderful run together, and I can't thank you enough for your thought-provoking, original posts.

xx D
