Dear world,

Once upon a blog we wore great clothes
We took great photos
We defined our styles.

We broke hearts
We broke banks
And in the end, became better friends.

Our closets will remain crowded
But our joint blog will soon be empty.

This is the final post for Crowded Closet. We are moving on, splitting up and shutting it down—but in a good way. Please stay tuned for what comes next for us, and thank you for being such great blog followers. Stay fashionable!

Farewell from Kim Hearts. Hearts and love for one of my great friends Melissa. Melissa and I started Crowded Closet as a way for us to stay connected through our common interest of fashion. The endless funny faces, outfits and other photos sent back and forth have made us the best of friends and defined our own personal styles. I wanted to start the blog to be closer to a friend and was amazed to find a whole community of people I would call my friends. Now is the time for new ideas and new beginnings for the both of us. I am excited to be starting my own blog and will always remember the fun I had with Melissa and thank her for making my closet so crowded. HAHAHA. Thank you all, from the bottom of my heart, for your constant love and support. Stay tuned my new blog will be up soon! xoxoxo, Kim

Farewell from Melissa Fashion blogging has been a really exciting outlet for me. Pushing the limits of my tiny closet, warming up to having my photo taken on the streets of NYC (“put your chin down”), exploring the world of photography, and writing blurbs about my outfits was never tedious–it was loads of fun. The fashion blogging community is such a great community to be a part of and I feel extremely lucky to have shared a successful blog with a great girl within that community. Now what in the heck will I do with my lunch breaks?! Thank you for all the help, Shannon and Jenna. Thank you for all of the support from my friends and family. An extra large thank you to all of the strangers out there that clicked on our url, saved a bookmark and followed our tales. Best of luck to you, Kim, and your independent blog–it’s just the beginning. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us…  xo, Melissa. ps: Happy Birthday, Anna!

Mel – love how you took your cocktail dress and made it day-wear!
Kim – I feel like we’ve been hangin out and catching up since I’ve been following.

Ladies- you were part of my morning routine. It’s b/c of your blog that I started scouting out the hottest fashion bloggers (you were on top). it’s been real, xoxo
