Ciao, darlings.


After much deliberation and thought, I have decided to end this blog. Some of you may want to hear that there was an unseemly incident or drama that made this decision happen, but really, there was none. The entirety of my time spent blogging has been nothing but positive. Which may raise the question : then why stop?

There is a bevy of reasons I can give you. But none hold so much weight as I feel I have hit a road block. I love styling and clothes and all that stuff, but after so much time doing something like this, you need a break. I can’t style my sassy little pixels and document them forever, right? So, basically I believe it’s time for me to move on to new horizons, whether they be Second Life fashion-related or not.

I’d like to thank every single reader/peruser that has stopped by and enjoyed my little blog. I love feedback, bad or good, and the response has been pretty overwhelming for me. My main objective has always been to push the envelope a little, be myself and post only what I genuinely liked…and I think I stayed true to that. Granted, some posts I look back at and say ‘what was I thinking?’ lol but overall, I really like what I have done. I hope some people were inspired to try something new and even change their outlooks on fashion in an online world (hell, even in the real world hehe). So, my sincerest thanks to one and all. You’ve made this quite the enjoyable experience! ❤

Over the last year and a half, I have seen some amazing bloggers and designers come and go. This blog has afforded me the opportunity to meet many of them and even become friends with a few. To all of you, I also extend my thanks for making this all possible and for making it such fun. Keep up the amazing work! I’ll still be shopping and still be reading all of your blogs hehe.

In conclusion, I am looking forward to what the future holds. I’d like to expand my creative horizons in Second Life, so this might not be the last you hear of me.

Peace and love,

Stokely Mayfair

  1. I know we've discussed this already and I knew it was coming but it still makes me sad. I might have to steal you sometimes for guest posts, just be warned.

  4. I wish you well in your ongoing SL journey. ❤

    I will miss your blog as well, Stokely. Thanks for all you have done, and as Chaos said, there were a great many places we would never have found without your help and guidance. Thank you for all the time you put in.

  6. Stokely, you’ll truly be missed. I always admired how you much fashion you actually created and not simply wore while inspiring so many – which is something I strive to do continuously through my blog. You pushed limits which I appreciated! Much thanks for being part of my previous portrait series and all your efforts as a differentiating blogger. Hope to catch ya soon! 😀

    Been a good run, Stokes. I’ve been an avid reader of your blog, and you’ve certainly inspired me on many an occasion ^^ So, kudos to you, dude 🙂

  9. I’m just one of many who’ll miss your blog, I really liked your style and it’s rare to see high quality male fashion blogs. Good luck in whatever you choose to do next. (:

  10. Awww Stokes, I’ve always loved your work here! I will miss your blogging dearly, but I am really looking forward to seeing how you direct your creativity in the future! You have bucket loads of it, so feel free to splash some here and there. The SLworld will thank you for it! <3333Abra

  11. I’ve always loved your style, and I will miss your blog. Now I’ll just have to stalk you in SL and message you daily just to see what you are wearing.

  16. 16 Stokely

    *hugs all ‘o yall*

    I’m not going anywhere! I’ll still be around SL! ❤

  17. ya know I feel the same. I went brb rather than saying goodbye (which scares me a little bit after two years) but I’m with you. It’s not sad at all to know we’ll have time more time for things and people we love 😉 . Including each other. There’s always a time in life we KNOW we’ve reached the end of the line, meaning, we should move on, to greater, better, bolder things. This is it, I’m sorta happy we’re doing it, unconsciously together as we did when we started blogging. Whatever you decide to do in the future, I just hope I’ll be standing by and with you. ❤

  23. Awww Stokely.
    So sad that you are leaving your blog.
    You have brought so much to SL fashion through your work with styling your selections.
    My friend, my inspiration and my Bishonen, enjoy your break and can’t wait to see what what you get up to next… it is destined to be wonderful!

  24. Zomg, could Stokely have clothing design in his future!? I will never forget that you were the first person to blog about my clothes and I thank you for giving me my first exposure. Thank you, thank you. I will miss the blogs and I laughed when you I read ‘what was I thinking?’ , I think that’s always true with any fashion that tries to evolve into something new and different.

  25. 25 Dianne Peccable

    I so enjoyed reading your website, you have a very unique style and writing. Take care

  26. Stokely, take care, have fun, and be in happiness whereever you may go!

  27. Stokely, I’ll miss your unique style perspective. Looking forward to what you do in the future. 🙂 Whatever it is, it will *undoubtedly* amazing.

  28. 28 Stokely

    Thanks so much guys ❤ your kind words mean alot to me!!

  29. 29 Eden Knoller

    Stokely — I have admired you from afar for so long. Your styling is perfection. I am always amazed at your ability to combine items and come up with fantastic looks. One of the things I most appreciate about you is your fearlessness when it comes to bridging the gap between women’s and men’s clothes. Nobody does it like you. I will miss your blog A LOT!!!
