misscouturable.com -- while maintaining my personal blog at noelduan.com. I didn't even think of returning back here until this morning, when I found myself accumulating emails from readers like you, telling me how much the Miss Couturable archives have meant to you.
I don't deserve to be the one who changes your life. I'm a 20-year-old college student who is busy trying to figure out her own life, after all. I really didn't -- and still don't -- have much time to offer you as much as I'd like to on this blog. Most certainly, I'll be at fashion week, but I don't have enough time between shows and classes and work and The Good Things in Life to post my own thoughts on each show I attend.
I stopped posting here because it didn't seem fair to you. I didn't have time to provide constant fashion week coverage or even a daily post. I didn't think I had much to offer anymore.
But, for some reason, some of you found usage in the archives. And whether you were reading to procrastinate or you wanted college application tips, I'm glad my blogging was not in vain.
I miss this blog, and I'm returning back to this blog because I finally realized what I can offer you: A glimpse of life (and fashion) through my eyes. It's not that different from the life of any other college student who has a penchant for Marni jewelry (and frankly, I know quite a few), but maybe some of you would like to share your stories with me as I share mine with you -- as many of you have already done through email with me. We may not always agree with each other, but we will always have something to say.
So, bonjour, hello, and 你好.
P.S. The above photo is from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week back in September. I'm on the far right, sitting with two of my genius and stylish friends from college (and a third who is taking the photo). We sat across the runway from Robbie Myers, the editor in chief of ELLE. Just goes to show that fashion (and life) is more fun when you're with people you love, and you never know who is facing you -- so remember to dress well and smile.
