The Vivienne Files is not dead – they’ve only been moved back to their old URL.
Due to circumstances that only someone MUCH more computer-savvy than me could explain, the site theviviennefiles.com has died. Gone kaput. Vanished. Google ate it, and Google will NOT spit it back up for me.
So I can be found at theviviennefiles.blogspot.com.
I’m so sorry. If I knew who to yell at, I would be screaming myself hoarse right now…
p.s. Make sure you scroll down and see today’s “real” post about all of the Chic Sightings of white in Chicago, in the heat of summer…
Allow me to scream for you. YIKES!!! EEEEEEEOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!! Hope that helps until you're up and running again. Miss you.

I am up and running, but I'm back in my old spot. Who would have thought, NINE DAYS after I bought my domain and linked it through Google, that Google would retire that program and ALL SUPPORT FOR IT???
thanks for the scream – I feel much better now!
Good gracious! What would my closet, my suitcase, my inner-clothed-self do if your site were gone forever?!!!! I'm so sorry for your frustration, Janice.
Janice Riggs says
I'm still here, I'm just back in my old location, which irritates me because SO MANY PEOPLE got used to the NEW location. sigh…
But I'm not going anywhere – what would I do without you all????
Well, your RSS feed is still working – that's good news!
Glad you are back. I hope you have backups of everything because it is so important for many of us to get our daily fix. Love the white outfits, especially the pink. I wear 90% white blouses and shirts and neutral bottoms and sometimes more colorful tops. I am searching for silk scarves and a couple of colorful pairs of shoes. mg
What a nightmare. Hope all the bumps are worked out, I need your help, regularly!!!

That was a big scare – I thought it was so teething issues with google reader stopping and somehow linked! Phew that it is fixed now…

Janice, this happened to me once, and eventually I recovered all the data. Don't give up just yet. But, I feel your pain.
Keeping my fingers crossed for you, that all will be back up and working!
Good luck! :-) and all the best :-)
Blame it on Mercury going retrograde!!!!!

Oh, I'm so sorry!! Blogger did that to me once and I almost had a nervous breakdown until it came back again. I never knew what happened or why.
Google gremlins at work! Nice of them to warn you when you signed up. I love love love your site. I can dream of a life where I'd need those great outfits … Mean while I'm slumming in my jeans and t shirts working in the yard and house and keeping up with the kids. It's not that I don't have things to wear, just no opportunity. Sigh.
How rude of Google!! :) Glad you still have the old spot to use. Thank goodness for all of us!
So sorry to hear about that! That kind of thing is a nightmare, always.
Perhaps this will cheer you up: a video from 1988 all about tying scarves and shawls. It reaches its zenith at the end where she is wearing a scarf AND tying a shawl on. I'd forgotten how badly clothes fitted in the 80s, she looks like she's drowning in polyester.

Yesterday when I tried to read your site, I received the error message and thought it was MY computer because I am having troubles with my computer right now. I was so upset because I thought I had lost your site for the long term. Knowing how upset I was over that, I can only imagine you being 10 times more upset! I am so relieved that you are up and running again.
Whew! Glad to find you again. I have become quite addicted…. Lovely pictures after a long day at work. Took me three days to find you through Facebook and find my way back.
Sorry for your pain. Glad to see you alive in the back up plan!
ummmm…..i've kept all your stuff that gets emailed to me…..it dates back to april 2012. does that help?
Janice Riggs says
Sooz- that is so kind of you! But I'm happy to report that I haven't actually lost any content, I just lost the web address.
I have the BEST readers in the world. I appreciate each and every one of you more than I will ever be able to express.
