Limited edition raw edged jersey scarf in “Storm” now available in the shop . . .
As I grow older I realize just how much I am my mother’s daughter. I have vague memories of watching my mother get dressed when I was younger. She was always quite fashionable and she had a penchant for scarves. I remember there being a brilliant array of colored and patterned scarves on hand in her closet. They weren’t that appealing to me then, and I marveled at how many scarves one woman could own. Well, flash forward a few decades, and now I am the one with the closet overrun with scarves. I LOVE scarves. I wear scarves even in the summer time. I love how they can add a little pop of color, or subtle texture to an outfit. And since I get cold so easily, I find they are easier to have on hand than a jacket sometimes. Scarves are a truly versatile accessory. There’s so much you can do with a scarf; they can double as shawls, be draped into different shapes, belted @ the waist or wrapped loosely a few times about the neck for warmth. They also make great gifts. I’ve added a few limited edition raw edged scarves to the shop. Click here to shop the selection!
Boston ‘Mini’ Envelope clutch | Ayanna Listenbee Collection Preview
So, the past few weeks I’ve been working on revamping the blog and website. In the coming months you will begin to notice a few changes to the website. The shop is now under it’s new name AYANNA LISTENBEE COLLECTION, which you can access by clicking the ‘SHOP’ button above (you can also type ayannalistenbeecollection.com into your browser and reach the shop as well). You SHOULD also be able to access the site by typing in ayannalistenbee.com . . . or at least that was the plan . . .
I’ve owned ayannalistenbee.com for years now. I even had a website set up at that address that sat empty for years while I focused on my blog and produced short runs of bags + accessories. But I realized it was time to “move back home” and put the shop under it’s rightful name. Sounds simple right? Well, when I started working with my web developer to get the site’s name changed over, we discovered that the company hosting the domain has no telephone number and no real customer service, except for an email address (which they apparently do not deem important enough to check or respond to). Needless to say, this process is taking a helluva lot longer than it should, and this isn’t even the big stuff. This is just pointing the site to a different domain name! I guess I should look at this as a mere test of my patience, but it’s frustrating when the simplest things turn into long, drawn out projects. Especially since I recently attended an industry event with a stack of unusable business cards because all the info on them directs people to a site that is in internet purgatory. What do you do when you have a stack of business cards with the wrong info on them and you simultaneously harbor a deep-rooted pet peeve of handing out business cards with information scratched out and handwritten in? . . . ugh . . .
Sometimes you just gotta laugh.
