Blake Lively's Sweet Note About Preserve Shutdown Will Make You Swoon
After revealing to Vogue that she is shutting down the site Oct. 9, the Age of Adaline star addressed fans in an Instagram post, showing her appreciation for their support in a way that gave us all types of feels.
"Thank you guys for your support every step of the way in the @preserve_us adventure. I couldn't be more grateful!! One day I'll stop wearing so many hats ....but ...I'll probably be dead by then, so... I'm just doin' what mama taught me ;) She's my idol. Who's yours? #WhyIsThereNoEmojiForSpiceGirlsGirlPowerFingers ?!!!," she captioned a shot of herself at a Preserve shoot playfully wearing three top hats, a ton of clothing layers and palming a picnic basket.
Blake previously announced the news in a Vogue.com interview, telling the site, "We have an incredible team of people who do beautiful work, but we launched the site before it was ready, and it never caught up to its original mission: It's not making a difference in people's lives, whether superficially or in a meaningful way."
Luckily, her site isn't gone for good. The actress said she plans to revamp the site post-shutdown and relaunch it, possibly under a new name. She's also listening to Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off" on repeat to help her get her ready for the change – which we totally support (and highly recommend dancing to as well).
Blake hasn't said how long it will be before we see her lifestyle site up again, but, considering we were fans of Preserve, we have a feeling that what our girl has up her sleeves next is going to be epic.
