I’m so excited to introduce you to my brand new shop page, organized by category and featuring preppy wardrobe essentials for every season. I started dreaming up this page in response to your feedback on the reader survey I conducted back in February and I’m really happy with how it turned out! In addition to providing a place to browse pieces from my closet and our home in one place, it will hopefully be a helpful addition as you look for product picks from categories I don’t necessarily write dedicated blog posts about all the time.
For instance, the number one request from the reader survey was more wedding content, even though our wedding was almost a year ago and I’ve already shared all my favorite memories and photos from our wedding weekend. And most of the items I wore that weekend are no longer available in stores, so the bridal favorites category on the shop page will be an easy way for me to share currently available white dresses and wedding-worthy shoes with all you brides-to-be without carrying on about our own wedding all these months later. Think of it as a way to see the things I might wear if we were to do it all over again!
Similarly, several of you asked for most posts about home decor and where to find the kinds of accessories I used to carry in the online boutique I ran from 2012 to 2017. Now when you browse the decor, entertaining, and office categories on the shop page, you’ll find all kinds of cocktail napkins, decorative objects, paper goods, pillows, and trays, a number of them the exact same pieces I used to carry available through Etsy and other online boutiques.
Each category will be updated regularly (meaning you’ll see lots more fall wardrobe essentials in the coming weeks!) as I’m constantly on the lookout for new pieces for my closet and home. I am so grateful for your feedback and am excited to continue incorporating your suggestions into the site design and blog content you find here. As always feel free to leave a comment or send me an email if you have any ideas on how I can improve — my goal is always to make Design Darling a place you find all kinds of inspiration for your wardrobe, your home, and your life, so I am truly all ears!
