Goodbyes and Hello.

Hey everyone! After tons of back and forth, creating two or three versions, and fifty million name ideas later, I've decided not only to change the name of my blog but to move platforms as well. I'd been wanting to update the layout of my blog for some time now, but after a while realized the limitations of my outdated HTML/CSS skills and Blogger.

I'm also stubborn enough where I fully believe I can do this on my own. As a result, I'm moving over to Wordpress. After months of experiencing KonMari, I really want to simplify my life and the things in it. I want a clean, simple layout and Wordpress was able to give that to me with minimal effort.

And the less time I spend wondering how the heck do I make this nav bar work, the more time I have to create content for you!

But its not just a platform change, but a name change as well. When I started this blog all I knew is that I wanted it to be me. Yes, mostly centered around my love for fashion, but just me. And it didn't really become that. I touched upon this in a previous post, so I won't bore you with repeated words, but I feel like I needed to move on. And so I came up with "Pamada K". Which, as you know is just my name. What you don't know is that I hated my full name for more than half my life. I got a lot of bullying with this name, and not that shortening it to "Pam" was much better, but at least it let me feel like I fit in.

"Pamada K" is me accepting myself and truly, truly being myself. I want to thank all of you for sticking around through all these ups and downs. I hope you'll make the migration with me to my new home on the internet (though after this week, will make the migration for you ;). I'll be updating all of my accounts (well the ones that will let me anyways) to @pamadak as well and eventually import over some of my old blog posts.

Thank you for reading!

<3 Pamada

{Lookbook} Thakoon for Kohls/Designation and Adam Lippes for Target

As it seems to go every 6 months or so, its a battle of the collabs. Target vs Kohls. Though for once Kohls is launching before Target. A good two weeks before at that. I'm wondering how that will effect the sales of both companies or if it really will at all? In any case, after spending the last 3 or 4 months KonMaring my entire wardrobe (and yes its still going on), I'm going to try to be much better about what I end up purchasing. In other words, I am going to try very hard not to buy all the things.

I really don't know how well this is going to go.

I did a decently with Lilly Pulitzer for Target, but at the same time, I knew most of that collection wasn't really my style. Adam Lippes and Thakoon are another story. On the plus side, I do have a lot of things working in my non-spending favor. The Adam Lippes collection is very plaid. I mean its literally just all plaid. And, for the most part, its all the same plaid pattern.

These are two are top of my wishlist. You can see that the pattern is the same but the color and styles are different enough where I wouldn't feel like its too repetitive.

I'm also seriously considering this barware set. As much as I loved the Lilly line, it didn't match with our decor (that and MP hated it). This however, will go quite well with everything.

However, all of this really depends on this Thakoon for Kohls plaid vest.

It's a $120. $120! Ugh. Even considering that Kohl's does a 25% off the first week of launch, this is still a $90 vest. I don't know if I can do it. I don't think I've ever bought anything at Kohl's for that much. But its all sorts of amazing and the only thing that really stood out from the line.

This hooded scarf and cardigan are nice but overall the collection is so normal that it lacks incentive to pay the designer mark up.

You can check out the rest of the lookbooks here and here. Its a pretty short list for me this time around. What's yours look like?

Happy Wednesday!

P.S. We're headed to Boston this weekend. Any recommendations on places to eat?
