Welcome to our new nest, Magpies.
TheFashionMagpie has enjoyed a glow up, and has also formally adopted its longtime nickname: Magpie.
I have wanted to rename my blog for years now, as its focus has expanded so significantly, and meaningfully, over the past many years of conversation with you. I began this blog as “TheFashionMagpie” – someone seeking hidden fashion gems – but for some time now, have been writing about a far wider range of topics, including motherhood, literature, loss, and self-care. There are so many beautiful exchanges about the real stuff of life happening in the comments section on a daily basis. At this point, “TheFashionMagpie” feels like a misnomer. We are much heartier than our name suggests. This is a community that goes to the hard places – death, grief, mom guilt – but also confesses an obsession with fashion. A woman can be all of those things and is often all of those things at once. Magpie therefore remains our perfect mascot: we are women searching for hidden treasure, whether those gems are of the sartorial or self-knowledge variety.
A woman contains multitudes. Of course, as a Magpie reader, you know this.
You can still expect to find the same rhythm and spread of reading: two posts a day, toggling between the freighted and the frivolous. But I hope you enjoy the new and improved reading and browsing experience!
P.S. Motherhood is a surfeit.
P.P.P.S. If you’re looking for your daily dose of shopping inspiration, look no further than my new shop. I am especially excited about these Halloween plates – the inspiration behind any festive decor I will have at home this year; this fabulous fall dress; and this $28 blouse, which reminds me of the style that just sold out as a part of Hill House’s earlier-this-week launch, to be layered beneath the latest crop of nap dresses!
