How to Search the Blog

There are 4 ways you can search my blog for information.

  1. Search by CATEGORY
  2. Search by KEYWORD
  3. Search the Archive Page
  4. Search by TAG

1) Search by CATEGORY

On the right side of every post/page is a list of categories. The number indicates how many posts use this category. When I write a post, I ensure that I include categories that are most likely to be used in a search, such as the factory code, type of outfit, outfit code number, foreign factory etc.

Sample search: If you had this outfit or even just the sweater, you could search by any of the following categories (depending on what you already know): Cornsilk outfit, 300 Codes, OK/P/KT factories

2) Search by KEYWORD

Below the category section, also on the right side, is the keyword search box, Search my Blog. You can use any descriptor of your clothing piece when using this search option.

3) Search the Post Archive

In the Pages section, on the right side of each page, is a page entitled Post Archive. Once there, it’s a matter of scrolling through the titles and descriptions to see if they match what you are looking for. You could also do a CTRL+F search and use a keyword.

4) Search by TAG

There are Tags assigned to teach post. You can click on a tag and find a list of all those posts that are associated with that tag. There are more tags than categories. If you are on a post that is close but not quite what you are looking for, check the tags.

Nothing Worked?

Although a lot of information is available on this blog, it is not yet a year old, and there is a significant amount of information that is NOT yet up. If you can’t find what you are looking for, it may be that it’s just not up yet. Additionally, some pieces are not useful for searching (e.g. plain pink bloomers).

I encourage you to contact me directly and ask your question using the contact form on the right side of each page. I love to help and share information when I have it. I will respond as quickly as I can. You can also contact me through Hilary’s Clothes Closet Facebook Page.
