STYLE ME GRASIE » fashion & lifestyle blog by grasie mercedes

changing positions


I’m changing things up a bit and putting the writing portion of my posts down here instead of up top. How do you feel about that? And what do you think of me writing in general? Do you care if I write at all or is it all about the photos? I really wonder these things, because when I visit my favorite blogs, I rarely read a thing. Is that terrible? Or does it make sense? Is it just about visual inspiration? Hmm. Help me. Seriously, would love to hear your thoughts. (More on the writing aspect of personal style blogs over the placement of my text.) Okay, I’m rambling. That’s what I get for blogging late at night. Thanks for listening. I love you. For reals.

    Great look! I personally like to read a bit. Not too much but your writing is totally fine!

    • thanks Leesa! that makes sense. xo

    It all comes down to what you write about I guess…I always find it interesting when people share their views on the clothes they’re wearing or how they reached this specific combination..but if you think that some days you just want to show your outfit, then it’s also perfectly fine to stick to the pics!

    • great advice! thanks for sharing…yeah, ill keep writing, but i like the option of just showing pics on some days. thanks for this!!! xo

    Please keep writing! I love hearing your comments on the outfit and what about it makes you happy, even if it’s just a couple sentences!

    • aww thank you Bonnie! i definitely will. it’s great getting this feedback from you! xo

  • Those heels, HELLO love!

  • I don’t care where you place your writing.
    I don’t mind the writing…short is best. 🙂
    We had something in common…we couldn’t get our ass to sleep. I was up till 4am last night or should I say this morning working.

    PS, love the shoes!

    • thank you! hope you’re sleeping well now! xo

  • Tracy

    The place of your posts is not really important! Great outfit!

  • Courtney Parker

    Your shoes are gorgeous!

  • I do have to admit that I usually just skim the text when I go to my favorite blogs and if the writing catches my eye than I’ll actually read! You can put your text wherever, your posts will still be awesome! Loving this skirt!

    • thank you Kacie!!! love that! xo

    Thank you for posing this question b/c I’ve been wondering the exact same thing. I consider myself to be a writer first and a fashionista second, but based upon these comments, most people are fine with or actually prefer just pictures. Maybe that’s why my blog hasn’t been as popular as I’d hoped? Or maybe it has nothing to do with my writing at all? Who the hell knows?

    To answer your question, I always read your writing, whether it’s at the top or the bottom 🙂

    • thank you for this! i think your blog should reflect YOU. so if you’re a writer first, then write!!! the readers will come. i don’t consider myself a writer necessarily, which is why i struggle sometimes. more of a actor/fashion lover who writes. (if that makes sense) i mean, i went to school for journalism but my focus was on broadcast so i like things short and sweet 🙂 thanks for sharing! checking out your blog now. xo

    I clicked on the link to purchase the shoes and they aren’t on the coach website. Can you tell me when and where I can buy them?

    • They’re from last summer so they’re no longer available. I tried to find something similar online but there really wasn’t anything like it. Sorry!!! xo
