Well, I’m sad to say that due to ongoing connectivity problems with Second Life, Nicolas and I will be parting ways with both the grid and the blog.
When we first started Bonnie & Clyde I’m not sure we knew quite what we were getting ourselves in to. Initially we looked at this as a way to journal our own personal and collective style(s) and see the evolution of our avatars over time. Beyond that it became an amazing creative outlet and remained something we enjoyed doing right up until the last post and I’m sure we will come to miss it.
Little did we know the true scope of what having a voice in the fashion community could offer. Some of our greatest and truest SL friends were met through blogging and it has afforded us some great in-world business opportunities along the way. For both of these things we are so very grateful.
On the flipside, we know from first hand experience how drama laden blogging can be (we edited out the ‘fuck you’ dedications after some careful thought), but I would hope that doesn’t discourage any current or future bloggers. This fashion community that so many of us call home is made up by not 1 or 2 people, but by the hard work and creativity of each and every blog – love them or hate them.
So, in case it wasn’t obvious, we will no longer be accepting review copies and would like to thank the designers that have shared their creativity and hard work with us so that we might share it with others. Also, a sincere apology to those who have sent us copies recently as we will not be able to post them as we normally would.
This is goodbye for now, but there’s no telling if we may be back in the future. Again, thank you to everyone who has made this experience so much richer than we ever imagined it could be.
You stay classy, fashionistas (and fashionistos!).
xoxo Bonnie & Clyde (aka Dahlia Eilde and Nicolas Sinatra)
P.S. We haven’t disappeared completely. If you would like to contact us we can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and of course we’re on plurk if you’re curious about what we ate for breakfast or how we feel about the weather. ;)
Thanks for the memories!
