Time whizzed by and a couple of anniversaries have passed me by namely because I don't keep track of dates and because the actual date occurred smack bang during Paris Fashion Week which of course you know was a bit of a palava.  I haven't done many "Blog Birthday" posts simply because I don't think the majority of you give a rat's arse how old a frickin' website is.   

Still, this one is for moi because congratulations to silly old Susie for ACTUALLY starting something and carrying on with it without giving up half way through.  This is what happened when I started a Sailor Moon Geocites fan page, a cookie recipe website and a teen angsty Livejournal – don't ask on all accounts.

Anyhow, I know people say the usual blub blub blub words of gratitude but I did genuinely want to state the obvious and say Thank You for stopping by, commenting, emailing and hey, even hating.  It's all conducive to a bit of online banter afterall.

Below in amongst the crazy font is a set of photos which thus far have appeared in printed press without me cringing – shot for the Observer piece by the lovely lovely Suki Dhanda – and capturing me at my happiest – messing around with my hotch potch, higglety pigglety, haphazard clothes… a lot of which you've seen on this very blog.

    Happy Birthday Style Bubble! This is, hands down, my favourite fashion blog, and the one that always proves you dont need a lot of money to follow fashion, just a bit of creativity and imagination!
    Thanks Susie!

    3 years is a hell of a long time to stick with something, well done Susie. Of course, I adore your blog and your sense of style.

  3. Winnie says:

    Wow, Happy 3rd Birthday! I don’t think many of us can say that we’ll all definitely be around in the blogosphere in 3 years time, so it’s not an easy feat to have accomplished. Congrats! xxx

  4. Sal says:

    Big time congrats, lady. I’m a late comer to the party, but a big fan nonetheless!

    Happy birthday stylebubble, and many more stylish years to come!

  7. Congrats on a job amazingly done! It’s been nice to follow your blogs growth over the years and to see some favorite pieces of clothing pop up over and again in various outfits. Your blog got me through the rough times of hating my previous job, and encouraged me to go for it and work on my own line full time. For that I will really be forever grateful. Keep up the amazing work, who KNOWS who else you’re inspiring!!

    Yeahhhh Susie! Weird coincidence that today is my blog’s birthday too (though it’s obvz not as great as yours). Thanks for being sooo ridiculously inspiring.
    (Confession: When I don’t know what to wear in the morning I look at your “Susie Styles” tag for quick inspiration.)

    Congratulations!! I remeber when i first started reading this blog when i was like 17/18 now i’m 20! I’ve learned so much from your blog Susie especially in the days of a-level when i only had a commerical and narrow view of fashion..i didnt really have any fashion lovin’ friends or anyone 2 guide me, through your blog i learnt so much..new designers..fashion hot spots..exhibitions..to not be afraid 2 express my individual n personal style! So keep on going 4 as long as you can because i love this blog!

    Happy birthday, Style Bubble! I hope there’s many more to come!
    hehe, I think we all had posted our teenage angst on LJ at some point in our lives 🙂

  28. Hineahi says:

    Sailor moon fansite? For some reason that sounds awesome. Happy 3rd birthday to your site, and I just wanted to say your blog made me realize my friends were tasteless label-bashing status freaks who really knew nothing about fashion. I now have my own style and can’t be happier. You really do make a difference!

  29. faddict says:

    Congratulations Susie! I’ve loved reading your blog for the past couple of years, and hope you continue for many years to come!

  30. KD says:

    Congrats! Amazing amazing amazing pictures of you, and though you shouldn’t judge based on looks, the pictures really do reflect how awesome you are! I adore your blog and you are my style icon – perhaps a tad creepy but keep up the stellar work! 😀

  31. Cristina says:

    You’re amazing Susie! I love your outfits and your outlook on fashion and life is inspiring! Love the blog, visit it everyday!

  32. Tanya says:

    I think by this age you should probably have a full set of baby teeth, be jabbering away quite fluently in whatever your first language is and be successfully potty-trained having made the move from nappies to baby undergarments… err at least that’s what i think babies know what to do by the age of 3…im quite unsure tho as im terrible with small children!
    Hehe just wanted to wish you a Happy 3rd Birthday Stylebubble!
    Ps. Im a massive Sailor Moon fan. Have seen all 200 episodes repeatedly and i own the dvds. Nice to find another fan.

  33. Mackenzie says:

  34. pindungo says:

  35. Sister Wolf says:

  47. Aja says:

    Congratulations on the Observer piece! Well done Susie. I can’t believe I’ve been reading one blog consistently for three years. That’s like a small accomplishment for me, of dedication. xoxo.

  48. kim says:

    Dude, I had a Sailor Moon fan page on Geocities too! It’s a small web world…

  50. Brandon says:

    Oh SUSIE you are remarkable I’m pretty sure most of us (your readers and adoring fans) have started blogs in the past and never managed to keep them alive for more then a few months but you. You have created a true masterpiece where people like us (you, me , everyone here congratulating you) can feel at home in knowing that personality kills trends and we can be as creative as we like in expressing ourselves through clothes. Thank you Susie! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

  51. happy birthday! I just follow your blog since last year but I do really enjoy reading your blog! and I really love this post’s photo! so unbelievably great! your style always put a smile on my face, I heart you Sussie! 😀
