Beginnings, Confessions, and Into the Unknown

I have a confession to make.


I’ve sort of been holding out on you all, mostly because I wasn’t sure what I needed to say, but here it is: Today I began a year-long school program (which you will at least be happy to know relates to fashion), and I have to come to terms with the fact that it will undoubtedly impact Clarisse’s Closet.

Nicole and I have enjoyed the past 10 months of posting almost daily during the week, bringing you fashion inspiration, tips, and answers to your sticky style situations, and hope you will look back at posts from the last year if you are in need of some fashion pick-me-ups!

What this means for the blog:
If you’ve grown accustomed to checking the blog daily for your dose of doll fashion, we’re sorry to say that posts will be less frequent. Studies must come first! This may mean one or two weekly posts, or even just a monthly post- we can’t say exactly. However, we will continue to post when we are able, and hope that you’ll keep sending “Questions for Clarisse,” because we love answering those! If you aren’t already, be sure to follow the blog by scrolling down to the bottom of the right-hand column of the page and click the “follow” button, so you will receive an e-mail notification when we post something new.

What this means for the shop:
We have lots of great items planned for the fall, and hope to share them with you all soon. Previously our collections have been released all at once, but it is more likely that we will release small groups of items at a time, and fewer quantities of each, so still keep an eye on the Etsy shop!

Thank you all for your support all these months, and we hope you will continue to be friends of Clarisse’s Closet, even as we venture into the unknown territory of this coming academic year and any opportunities that may arise from it.

Love, Clarisse and Nicole

  4. Big congrats on the new school endeavor! That sounds like it’s going to be awesome. No one understands better than my girls at the Bruton School just how tough it is to maintain a full-time school schedule and keep a blog going (not to mention your Etsy shop!). It is hard, hard, hard, which is why Audra posts so inconsistently and infrequently. But you’re right, studies must come first. I know we’ll all look forward to your posts whenever you’re able to share them, Clarisse and Nicole!
