Green and Chic Store Makeover & SoLi Design Studios Review

October 8th, 2009

I know it been a while, but I would like to introduce my new Green and Chic website!

Sophia Lindsay of SoLi Design Studios is the brains and muscle behind the new design, layout and feel. My vision was to have a more user friendly web store while keeping the same eCommerce platform (which makes my life easier).

Though the site is always a work in progress and never “complete”, I am very happy with the new design. Its been almost a year since the launch of Green and Chic and I have been itching for a new look for months. Its almost like keeping the same wardrobe or hairstyle for over a decade, and you’re craving for a change as you grow as a person and your life changes.

Sophia was my personal shopper, esthetician, and hair stylist. When looking for someone to design or redesign your website, its very much like looking for someone to help you put together your wardrobe. You are searching for someone with experience, that has a good eye, knows the definition of practicality and can work within your budget.

During the process, Sophia always laid out exactly what she wanted to do, the reasons why and asked for my input before making a move. Whenever I had questions (and I had tons), she was very patient with me. I was able to see every update and change she made to the test site as they occurred. Her scheduling and billing process was seamless and easy to understand.

Over the past couple of years, I realized how difficult to find a web designer that fits some of qualities we look for. I’m glad my search is over.

This blog is next!

    I really like the new site. You are going to have to do a post on how you created it, where you get the products you sell etc. I would like to open an online store (selling crafts etc.) but don’t know where to begin.

    @Debo Hobo – I did have a blog that I abandoned almost a year ago at http://thebusinessofgreenandchic.wordpress.com/
    I started to get into it, but lost steam as I was busy working on this blog, the web store and working full-time on the outside. Its something I may take up again, but I am always here to answer any questions you may have.

    Check out http://mywifequitherjob.com/blog/ where I got (and still get) a lot of valuable information when I first started.

    The best of luck to you!

    I love the new design and yes as I turned 60 I really wanted a new hair do and wardrobe! I recognize the feeling.

    I used vinegar and baking soda early on as cleaners, but then they made allergies so much worse than before….especially to mold/ and that is smelly. I switched to Tea Tree Oil products that helped the native folks of Australia and local people here make a difference in their lives. I love doing things that benefit so many – keep up the good work…you are providing wonderful service

    This is a great post.. Very informative… I can see that you put a lot of hard work on your every post that’s why I think I’d come here more often. Keep it up! By the way, you can also drop by my blogs. They’re about Vegetable Gardening and Composting. I’m sure you’d find my blogs helpful too.
