THE FASHIONABLY BROKE - BLOGGER - REDESIGN


I'm excited to share details on my latest blog redesign for my favorite, fashion blogging sisters, Natalie and Erika of The Fashionably Broke. They came with many ideas on how they wanted to update their blog but left it to me to give them a cleaner and more modern design. Check out the before and after:

2. Created a new "sticky", drop-down, navigation bar with menu items and social media buttons that highlight when you hover over them
3. Moved the search box to the navigation bar
4. Moved their Instagram feed below the navigation bar and widened it to fit the width of the screen
5. Removed several sidebar gadgets that cluttered their design
