I have always been the opinion that change is a good thing. Something is always lost, but there is much to be gained in the process of metamorphosis and transformation.

In this, my fourth year of blogging, there is a new blog design for StyleOnTheCouch that reflects the simplicity and purity I seek in my clothing. What you will see on my blog in 2014 is a little more of ‘me’ – in fashion, in lifestyle, and in the details of my life.

In December I took a break from blogging after a personal loss. It was a time to mourn as well as to rejuvenate and I travelled back to the US; to Miami for Art Basel, to Atlanta for family and to Mexico for adventure.  These photos were taken at Atlanta’s High Museum of Art, a beautiful gallery providing a journey through time and across continents.  On this day I chose to wear some of my favourite pieces of the present, including my new Fleet Ilya corset belt, a Christmas gift.

I adore Fleet llya.  Their sculpted leather designs without boundaries make them intense and interesting additions to a wardrobe.  I’ll be wearing this belt again over a flowing dress for New Year’s Eve.

Welcome to my new blog, Reader.  Thank you for supporting the site to grow over the past four years and for being part of my own style adventures.  Happy New Year!

Wearing: Zara Cropped Sweater; Fleet Ilya Large Cut Out Point Corset Belt, French Connection Jumpsuit.  Clutch; Curly In The City Etsy Shop.

    Welcome back, Sarah! It’s always such a pleasure to visit your space and I love the new look of it – simplicity and purity indeed, sentiments I agree with wholeheartedly and am searching for in clothing as in life more than ever these days. I hope that, despite your loss, you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas holiday and I wish you nothing but good things for 2014: health, happiness and a beautifully curated closet :)
