Can you believe it has been several weeks now since our beloved style.com ceased to exist? This has been hard to swallow for me and I must admit I've been a little emotional. Ten years strong they were, which is impressive; a whole decade. I remember how accessible it made fashion to a girl living in the south eastern suburbs, with a penchant for labels that most of her fellow twenty one year old girl squad were oblivious to. How effortless it was for me to view shows and see new collections all sans palaver of scourging through printed pages. It was one of the initial apps I installed on my first ever iPhone, the radical 3G. I spent far too much time perusing that app. They made the impossible possible by giving me an innovative and thrilling way of accessing even more style and all without that incessant need to wait for internet browsers to load. I remember awaiting an order of fish n chips, seated on that uncomfortable emerald green bench on a hot summers day, amusing myself by scrolling through runway shows, utterly delighted to find the new season of Twenty8Twelve (anyone else recall the hype?) uploaded. I was undeniably obsessed with the app, which swiftly removed the reigns from my hallowed Harpers Bazaar magazine.

Most of all I remember the enveloping comfort in visiting this website had for me. Those dull hours of a long work day made slightly more cheerful because of its content. The site itself was a mecca for me. Not only for when I was young and irrevocably fashion fixated but for when I first began this blog and used the site countless times as a reference and for some much need inspiration and direction. It's somber to imagine that sartorial hub no longer as it was but now redirecting to Vogue. All those moments spent trawling through their pages, alas, no more.

  1. Hi Sonia:)
    Believe it or not, I "feel your pain." As you may remember, fashion is not my "forte" however, I devour as many food related sights, sounds and smells I can get my little hands on. I remember how I felt when Gourmet stopped publishing. I was devastated!

    Hope all else is going well in your little corner of the world. I'm not back to blogging yet (except for a recent update:) Missing all my online "pals" and working on getting back to blogging as soon as possible...

    Stay well, Sonia, Louise:)

  2. Though I do not know style.com, I can see that it's had a pretty huge impact in the fashion world and losing something regardless of what it is or where it is is always hard. Perhaps a little dramatic here, but we all can afford a little bit of drama when something we love is gone.

    Have a lovely Friday, Sonia.

  3. I confess I didn't spend a lot of time on style.com myself, but I know what it feels like to have the end of an era! Hopefully something else comes along that fills the gap just as nicely as style.com used to for you! :)

  13. Ah dammit, I feel so out of the loop - I can't say I ever visited that website! I can relate though; far too often I find myself redirected to other pages when preparing myself to visit one of my favourite 'familars'. Though, I should say I've also found you to be incredibly inspired Sonia, so I doubt this will effect you for too long - I mean come on, your Pinterest is a dream! ;)

  16. I am not familiar with style.com but then again, my interest in anything beauty and fashion related only started in 2013 so I'm newish to the scene. But I know how sad it can be when something that meant a lot to us, something nostalgic cease to exist. I really like the black and white manicure, very unique and also loving the red lips and very neutral face makeup. Might need to try the look myself.

  31. Yes it is kind of weird, but it is interesting everyone is bemoaning the demise of print, but yet it is a print industry company that bought style.com, interesting very interesting. But with the way the internet has changed fashion there is so many places to go for fashion content.

  38. I love the positive attitude in that quote about trying to make the best out of each day as it comes along - it sounds like a wonderful plan. I like the collage of photos! The nailpolish being dark on the fingers and light on the thumbs, the lovely couture and the eyes, lipstick and hair in the portrait photo are all beautiful. Of course it's sad that Style.com ceased to exist, but I hopefully you will find something to replace it, perhaps via some of the other fashion, beauty and lifetstyle bloggers you follow?

  41. I didn't ever use the app but I was aware of it and its crazy how when technology moves along so do companies. There's such fierce competition that this is bound to happen much more in the future to more companies that we love today!!
