Welcome to the new Effortless Anthropologie!!!

Monday, February 28, 2011

After some extra testing time, I'm excited to debut the redesign of Effortless Anthropologie! There are a bunch of changes to the blog (and more to come) which coincides with the ever-growing community here. I hope that the redesign will make it easier to find the information you're looking for.

A huge thanks to my friends Macgruff and Jessa for helping me with this redesign. I'd also like to give a shout out to the Intense Debate team, who helped me through a code issue that was preventing the comments from working correctly. Without them I would not have been able to launch this redesign.

The biggest change to the site is the navigation bar along the top. Not every category has dropdowns but the weekly recurring features do. From now on, you can zoom to the Trade Market, check the comments FAQ, and jump easily  from Sale post to OOTD quickly with just a hover and a click. I have one more section coming -- a general FAQ with commonly-asked questions about Anthropologie. There are some more subtle changes, like font-size changes and link color changes meant to make the site easier on the eyes.

The new Trade Market is still in the works. We are testing the new Trade Market site and hope to launch it in March. It's one of the changes in the works to help serve the community. Other suggestions are welcome.

I'd like to set aside this post for comments and feedback. Is the redesign more functional? Anything missing? Hard to find? Please let me know. I will be continuing to refine the site over the next couple of weeks and would love to hear your input. If you prefer, feel free to email me.
