They will be back!! I don't know when my next fashion excursion will be or what destination it will be about, but I will most definitely do them again. :)
Next up: Quizzes. Once upon a time I created a quiz called- Quel est votre style (What's Your Style)? This quiz still exists, and you can take it whenever you like as it is in my Quiz category on the sidebar to the right. Or you can go to it right from here. I had planned to make more quizzes since then, but that clearly hasn't happened as I created that quiz in June.
They may be back. In all honesty, I really enjoyed making the quiz, and I would love yo make more for you all. They do take quite some time to make though.
Another adventure that I took on this summer was Get Dressed With R'Nelle Weeks which were not scheduled every week but every once in a while. I have only done one so far, but these will be back as well. I'm serious. As mentioned on twitter, I have a special/extra post scheduled for Friday, which is actually a Get Dressed With R'Nelle Week: Monday through Thursday. Friday Saturday and Sunday are not included because I will be out of town, but a new post is still going up Sunday. I got you. Also, it will be a bit different. It will be... a lookbook! This will be my very first lookbook (video style) and I hope y'all enjoy. If you've ever seen any lookbooks on YouTube or anywhere else, you may have noticed that they are accompanied by ground shaking background music that touches your heart and soul. Ok, that may not be true for all of them, and the feeling may not be that intense. Anyways, I really wanted to use Omen by Disclosure ft. Sam Smith because that song is amazing, but I do not own the rights to the song, I do not have time to attempt to contact Disclosure's record label to obtain a permissions license, and I am not trying to get sued. Instead, I will be coming up with my own background audio which will be: a voice over about my look, styling tips with me rambling on about whatever, me playing a bit of guitar (I play guitar), a series of other musical related sounds, or a studio musical composition created by me. I would love to do the latter; I am still working on figuring out my musical composing software, so we will see. I am having success though! Regardless, the lookbook will still go up Friday!!
Next up, New Additions!!
2) New Additions
I did add something that is here to stay: a search bar!!! If you go to the very top of my sidebar to the right, you can access my search bar. This search bar is so much fun. Literally type in a full title or keywords you want to see a post about, i.e. "style" "OOTD" "evening wear" "outfit" "affordable" "outfit guide" etc., and if I have a post on it, it will show up when you hit the search button. Anything I have typed in so far has popped up when I hit search, but if you'd like to see a post on something that I don't have, leave a comment, tweet me, direct message me, or email me, and I will do my best to make it happen! Don't be shy.
In conjunction with the lookbooks, I plan to share more videos here and there as well. They won't be up all the time, and I am not turning into a YouTuber (I don't even have a YouTube channel for that purpose...anymore). The videos will be posted here on my site only.
Finally, Quick Facts.
R'Nelle's Classi Creations all started with handbags, wallets, and clutches that I make which you can view on my Products page. I do not sell online at the moment. This site was born from that business which still thrives today! I also do other things such as fashion designing, personal styling, etc. (the full list is in my Twitter and Instagram bios), and those things are listed on my business cards that I created that I pass out locally to places I visit. My business card also features the RCC logo that I also created which you can see at the top of my site.
I originally had the intentions of selling online, but that didn't quite work out and, I really wanted to start a fashion blog. I wanted the name of my site (and business) to have a nice ring to it so I played around with some words and phrases and came up with R'Nelle's Classi Creations, aka RCC; these letters are also my initials: R'Nelle CyRe' Collins (pronunciation in my About page).
Why My Titles are French:
I wanted my very first post to have a catchy and beautiful title to interest people to read, so I put it in French. After the first title, I just rolled with it. Why French? For one, I have been attempting to learn the language in my free time for years, and I do know enough to get me around and have basic conversations, but I am also part French (French Creole + more) and want to embrace the language/culture in ways that I can! That being said, I am still learning, so I may not always be 100% correct with my translations and grammar.
All photos are taken by me or my mom. All the photos in this post were taken by me. I use objects in my surrounding environment as tripods.
Thank you again,
Don't forget to stop by on Friday!! We'll see how that project turns out. (;
