Headline Girl Give It Away

Category: My OutfitsEyeliah @ 9:00 am

My site team has said that the comments are now working so I’d love you to leave one (if you haven’t recently) to help me test it out, perhaps an entry on the giveaway.  😉 It’s crazy how big an impact losing the blog for 5 days has had on Style Symmetry; site view are down to what they were 6 months ago, meaning 6 months worth of growth has been erased.  I am determined to get the readership back up to where it was within the next month….

Any advice or tips for me you geniuses?

It’s been hot so I’ve been wearing as little as possible.  This first dress is very 90s throwback with it’s spaghetti straps and cute little mirrors and embroidery. I’ve had it a while but had to repair some of the details before it could be worn.

Look #1: Mirrors Dress $4 & Bowler Hat Thrifted. Brown Shrug, Ebay. Leopard Purse, Free from Swap. Vintage Boots.

Look #2: Vintage Lace Collared Dress and Beaded Purse. Clarks Sandals.

    helping test the comments! Not sure what to do about the readership thing…I’m subscribed to the feed in google reader, I’m not sure if that shows up as page views for you.
    Anyway, the bowler hat looks perfect with your hair 🙂

    I love that first outfit, the little mirrors are so fun!
    I’m with you, been wearing as little as possible in the heat. I’ve been busting out some dresses that I normally never wear without tights! Nothing like a heat wave to force you to get comfortable with your thighs!

    That’s the thing! I took a week off and my views went WAAAAY down. This is problem with blogging – you have to do it every day, all the time or else it suffers. It’s wierd though…the longer you go between posts, the more comments you get but the less readers. Huh.

    Welcome back!

    Yes, the more you post the more readers you’ll get. Can you email past commenters/subscribers and let them know you’re back? Maybe announce it in some forums or social networking sites etc. Really you probably will just have to give it some time but your readers will find their way back. Good luck!

    Good to see things are back in working order again! Lovin the 90’s dress/bowler hat combo, super cute!

    That first outfit kicks ass from the tip of your head to the tip of your toes. Love. It.

  8. Audi says:

    Love love love that first outfit — such a laid back chic.

    Glad your back up and running! 🙂

    I found your blog through Wardrobe_Remix and I’m sure others did too. But it’s sometimes not easy to find out stuff in Flickr. So make it easy for your fans and new soon-to-be fans. Mention your blog address as a sig after the description you give for each pic – like: blah blah dress, shoes, etc and then “check out my blog!” at the end (though a bit perkier than that obviously!).

    I agree that a blogger needs to post at least every other day to keep her stats up (unless you’re Dooce of course!!).

    I for one, re-welcome you to the fray!

    That black dress with the lace collar and puff cap sleeves!!! So gorgeous, love it 🙂

    Hopefully people will just generally drift back? I had you in my reader so you when it was back up an running. Hopefully it gets back up – crazy that it’s down to where it was 6 months ago!
    Love that little black dress, but im a sucker for lace!

  13. C&G says:

    Maybe if your skirts got shorter and shorter with each pic you could develop a whole new following, though, probably not the one you are looking for… 😉

    Thanks for the opp to do the giveaway! I am grateful to all your followers for the visits and looking forward to sending this little gem to the lucky winner! Think of one to kick of fall..maybe a handbag?????

    love both dresses and the way you styled the first one is awesome! love it with those boots!

  15. Michele says:

    I really love that mirror dress esp. with the shrug and boots. You look fabulous in it.

  16. Diana says:

    I love those slouchy boots!
    I’ve found that the best ways to increase site views are 1) comment on as many blogs as possible, 2) hold a giveaway and 3) be mentioned in a Tweet by someone who has a lot of followers.

    Love that first outfit! every bit of it is awesome.
    I too have a bowler hat gotten at Target a little while back, looking forward to wearing it soon 🙂
