I’ve been thinking about this post for a while now because, well, it’s probably my last one on LCCC for the next little while, if not as a whole.
I’ll just let that last bit settle in.

…Ok how are we doing? It’s come as a relative surprise to me too. I’d always wondered how LCCC would see its “end”. Would it “ever” see it? And now here we are.

I probably took the decision officially two weeks ago. I’ll save you guys a long winded essay on the where, when and how and shed some light on the why.

Recently my web developer told me we’d have to do some back end work and it would lead to our splitting ways. That was the turning point that really set my thought process in motion regarding how much longer I wanted to keep “it” up, given I’d felt adrift for the last little while.

When I started this blog, the phenomenon was still relatively new to the industry. In the last 5+ years, a lot has happened. In my life and in the industry. The evolution in both, go hand in hand. I promised myself, and you guys, that I would blog so long as I was inspired. As of late, since entering my thirties, with my growing passion for my daytime career, the work @melanievoyer and I have been investing in Soie Agency, plus my personal life, I’ve felt a slight disconnect for the blog.

It seems that with so many bloggers today, and less time (and admittedly less interest) to sacrifice to original content like, outfit posts, in particular, it became difficult to offer what I wanted for the blog. More than just my re-interpretation of the inspiration we’re all seeing left, right and center today. I think the style blog(ger) has evolved, and for me she’s LCCC turned Soie Agency. It’s LCCC, grown up, if you will.

I want to send a BIG HUGE thank you (!!!!) to ALL of my readers. From those who have been there since day 1 to those who are newer to the brand: ALL of your support means the world to me and don’t be mistaken: It’s what has kept me motivated to run this blog for the last 5.5 years. I hope you’ll follow me as I take on the next chapter.

First of all Soie Agency: If you love LCCC, you’ll love Soie!

    Hey Stephanie,

    I’ve been following LCCC for almost 4 years now and just wanted to thank you for putting together such a wonderful blog. I for one (though I know I’m not alone) am very sad to see this is the end for LCCC. There definitely has been a massive surge in the number of blogs over the last few years, but I have always always come back to yours. Your posts are always innovative and beautiful – essentially everything I want to look at and read. Thanks for all the time you have devoted to LCCC, you’re a class act and Soie are lucky to have someone like you on their team!

    With love from Australia, Alexa

    I’m actually really sad. I’ve followed you since the beginning! :( Hopefully you’re still sharing your style and outfit posts on Instagram at least!

    Good luck!

    I have been a loyal follower since the beginning of LCCC and I am extremely sad to see your blog go. I might be the only selfish one here that is asking you to reconsider your decision to end the blog. You have a distinct voice and charm in your posts that is genuine and the hints of your life that you choose to present here further show that you are a class act. Your taste is refined and well thought out, and your wish lists and outfit posts, coupled with your inspiration boards are well done. There are a lot of fashion blogs out there, but yours has always been one of my favourites because of its consistent quality and of course, your personality. I do hope that you will keep LCCC around in some capacity, but I will most certainly follow you on your journey to see what great things you have looking ahead with your great talent.

    WOW! I’m so sad to hear it! I feel as though a friend just announed she’s moving away. I too have followed you since the beginning and always loved your realistic approach to blogging (you’re my favorite). Most of the other bloggers I follow are not living relatable lives, or portraying relatable style–at least for me. Especially in the 30s range. Wish you the very best though!! Although I do hope you might change your mind one day… Thanks for all your your hard work and inspiration! You will be sorely missed.
