I love me some Stila. My Mom and I are Stila Girls from way back when Stila was a very little-known brand and on the cutting edge. At the time, Stila bridged the gap for a market that was saturated with MAC and Estee Lauder with nothing in between. I think Stila set the mark for new brands taking shape! Stila was a breath of fresh air in a stale cosmetics market when I bought my first Kitten eyeshadow.
I logged on to Stila’s site this morning and was greeted with a strange page:
Say what? Fashionista is reporting that Stila may have gone bankrupt. If this is true, it’s too much bad news for me to bear. Honestly. It seems a little strange that the site states that any orders that were placed 3/23-3/24 may be cancelled as when that seems to be when things went awry according to numerous accounts. This is a big shake-up in the beauty world. Words like “bankruptcy” and “financial restructuring” are being tossed around. But who really knows? Discount hounds will be happy if this is indeed true, the warehouse sales are sure to be awesome. But I’m not willing to kiss my dear friend Stila goodbye. What do you think? I think this is a sign of things to come, scary times indeed. My wallet is on standby just in case I need to scoop up some Kitten shadow.
