A New Name

[London Fashion Week]
Hey gang,
I hope this finds you well. I've been thinking a lot lately about my blog, even though my online presence has been a bit quiet. First of all, this blog will no longer be called, Mixed Mediums Theatre. It is now the new and improved, Girl In The Houndstooth Coat. I know it's a bit of an essay as far as blog titles go, but it's me. I was never wild about my old name and I've been wanting to make the change for almost a year now, so I finally went ahead and did it!

I know I'm not always posting on this blog, but I am constantly reading other blogs. One of them posted an interesting podcast about blogging. One thing that really stuck with me from it was that they mentioned that a lot of bloggers keep promising to blog more, be more consistent, or commit to weekly posts. They made it sound that if you can not do this, then you are not a blogger. I have realized over this contract of Hairspray, that those are things that I myself can't commit to and I'm ok with that! I hope you are too!!! I think blogging should be about sharing memories or inspiration, it should not be a chore. It should be an impulse, or something you look forward to. An outlet of creativity.

The inspiration for my new title came from one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe. If you're a pal of mine you've probably seen me in this coat a thousand times. It's the love of my life. My dream coat which is from the 70s and made in Switzerland. Handed down to me by my Mother, this sucker has been my main coat since the age of 16 and it's been all over the world with me.

So here's to a new name! Thanks to all of you that have been reading from the very beginning and most of all to my sister, Nicola. Who inspired me to start this blog in the first place! Also, I'm gonna be trying out a few different headers for the blog, please let me know which one is your favourite!

Thanks for tuning in!



  1. A very fitting name indeed, pal! I like it!

  2. I couldn't agree more! I love the name of your new blog, it suites you all the better. That and I adore that coat, I've been looking for one like that for quite some time now. With no luck as life would have it.

    I love that you have that attitude towards blogging. I try to do something similar on mine, but sometimes I do blog because I feel I have too. Good for you for having that type of mentality!

    As for your current header I'd say it's alright, don't take what I say too seriously though (if you ever need design tips or pointers I'm your gal! I'd be happy to help!)

    Love Rhiannon

  3. You have such a pretty style!!
