Stay Tuned. . .

After a busy and exciting summer I am back from an extended hiatus from blogging. No matter how hard I try, it seems that the summer months tend to get away from me and like the French, I take a vacation from my blog.

This summer has given me some time to reflect on the direction that I am going, and the direction that I want for this blog. I knew when I came up with the name, The Style Maison, that it was style, and not fashion I wanted the emphasis to be on. It started out as a fashion blog, however, I have made a decision to now include all things fabulous and stylish.

Some days this may mean a stylish bridal shower, others it might be serving dinner in style - the root of the blog will most likely remain fashion, but you will begin to see a lot more lifestyle content show up.

I am also working on changing up the layout a little bit. These changes will take place over the next few weeks, so please continue to check back to see the new and improved format.

I also wanted to announce an exciting new venture for me, I am now one of the writers for AskMissA.com - a national lifestyle e-magazine that provides heartfelt rather than commercial content for women's well-rounded lifestyle interests: cultural, political, and social issues; art and literature; design and entertaining; style and skincare.

Andrea Rodgers, founder of AskMissA.com is featured in the September issue of Vogue, on news stands now. I am so honored to be a part of her fantastic site!
