Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I am so excited to unveil LDV’s new home at www.ladolcevitablog.com as well as our beautiful new layout designed by the super talented, Hanna Nation of GADABOUT who was so patient with me throughout the process as I stressed about transferring 7 years of posts from Blogger to WordPress. She was so intuitive along the way and knew exactly what I would want as well as what would make the site so much better for our beloved readers. Thank you, Hanna for your tireless work and vision!

The old paloma81.blogspot.com will automatically redirect to the new website, but please, please, please be sure to update your blog readers and feeds with our new URL. I would love to hear your feedback on the new design and layout. I think everything is much more user-friendly now and I love the more streamlined, editorial new look. Among the new features, you’ll notice a more organized navigation menu with all of your favorite LDV series in one place as well as a new shop with categories for both fashion and home that we will be updating frequently. Thank you for your continued readership and support. Please be patient with us as we iron out a few kinks. Be sure to check back in later today because we are hosting a fantastic giveaway and tomorrow, I will be sharing the before and after of a big design project I recently completed.  I can’t wait for you to see it!

  1. The new layout is very sophisticated. I wish the font size was larger, the small size, combined with the gray, rather than black font makes it a strain to read. Best of Luck!

  2. Beautiful new design, elegant and airy. I do find the body text harder to read on my desktop. Is it smaller? Best wishes!

  3. So Chic!!! Well done Paloma! Best wishes on this new stage, always on the top of my blog list, I read you daily. 🙂

  4. Not sure if it is just a little kink but in Bloglovin’ the ‘LDV Series’ drop down won’t go away, leaving only a little slice of reading room available! Hopefully it’s a short term issue! Otherwise, I love the new design!

  5. The new blog looks great! I do agree with commenter #1 though…it’s near impossible to read the text in your blog posts. The font combined with the gray color makes me have to really strain to read. It’s pretty bad, to be totally honest. You might consider changing this one aspect, as it makes me and probably some others not want to read the copy because it’s so difficult.

  6. Thank you so much, everyone! We went ahead and darkened the body text to a much darker grey that is nearly black. Did that make a difference for any of you who were having a hard time reading the lighter grey yesterday? We want to make sure we get it right! Thank you! XOXO
