Fresh Quince in 2011

Come January 1st, Fresh Quince will have a new design! I have been grappling with different images and have finally chosen something I love, so pop on over in the New Year to see my fresh new design. Here's a tiny sneak peek...

Also, I have been following a blog called Ish and Chi for quite sometime. The blogger, Viv, has a feature called Fashion Friday, where she photographs herself in gorgeous new attire. Below are some of my favorite outfits...

Stunning, huh??? Anyway, she has inspired me to create a similar feature, but instead of clothes bought new, I will focus on my second hand items. Starting next Wednesday on my What to Wear Wednesday's, I shall photograph myself weekly in all of my consignment, vintage or second hand clothes. I want to share how I have created an entire wardrobe out of used clothing with a few newbies here and there. I hope it will inspire you...remember great style does not have to be bought new!!!

Lastly, I would love love love to hear from you all next year!!!!! A few weeks ago I received an e-mail from a subscriber named Therese who wanted to share her most recent Craigslist find. I was so happy she shared because she bought the most unique and gorgeous bed frame on Craigslist. So, I decided to create a weekly post on Monday's and feature all of your favorite Craigslist, second hand, gotten out of the trash, vintage or antique finds. It doesn't matter where you found it or what it looks like, if it is special to you and your favorite, then I would love to share it on Fresh Quince. So, I hope you all look forward to My Favorite Find posts on Monday's. Here's a sneak peek at Therese's head board, which will be the first item featured starting Jan. 10, 2011...

Please send your favorite find photos to me at or you can reply via my e-mail posts. I seriously can't wait to see what you all have found!!!! 


  1. Love the Monday topic: Our Craiglist Finds! I am prepping my house now to take pictures of all of my finds and my projects to come! Can't wait to share with you my finds this year!

  2. That new design is going to look so good! What a perfect way to start the new year!!

    Happy Thursday Darling! xo

    Oh, and I'm having a perfume giveaway if you're interested!

  3. sounds like lots of great plans for 2011! can't wait to see your new design. cheers!

  4. Looking forward to Fresh Quince's new look for 2011. Just wondering if your projected second hand "style-athon" will feature tattered T-shirts from your high school wardrobe--I particularly loved the ones with gasoline logos. Your grunge wardrobe was a real money saver!
