Thank You

I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has been supporting my site since the global epidemic hit.

If you come several times a day, once a day or once a week, your support will enable me to still be here when this crisis is over, as a single hit will generate the much needed revenue via the ads and the shopping links to keep the site going.

I checked my stats this weekend, and was happy to see that my numbers were pretty much the same; higher on some days.  I’m truly humbled.

The site has been glitchy the last few days.  I have been working on getting it more stable so apologies for that.

I got these tips from Lucy Davis on how to stay sane in quarantine;

1. Read a book you never had time for
2. Connect with loved ones on FaceTime
3. Self care
4. Yoga
5. Bake a cake
6. Home workouts
7. Paint/draw/colour and be creative
8. Smile; it goes a long way
9. Cook some delicious recipes
10. Watch a new series
11. Learn a new hobby (juggling? Martial arts? TikTok dances?)

12. Educate yourself; research something you’re interested in, e.g astronomy? Art? Fitness?

13. Spring clean to your favourite music and dance like nobody is watching

I hope you and your loved ones are all keeping safe, healthy and positive wherever you are in the world.

    Thank you Catherine, for giving us (or at least me) something to distract from the all the problems and risks we’re facing now.
    Take care and be safe 🙂

  2. Guest March 31, 2020 at 2:03 pm #

    Thanks Tata.

    This is a great idea. I have been making a list for content ideas, and this is a great one.

    I am currently working on a post for Aishwarya Rai’s Cannes Film Festival journey, but top looks from individual stars from the last 10 years is awesome.

    Stay safe, Cx

  3. Guest March 31, 2020 at 2:03 pm #

    We are the ones to thank you!
    Your site is a sweet breeze of normal life we need to get going.
    Thank you!!

    And if you are ever to take suggestions, I would love to see the top looks (3, 5 or 10!) from your favorites stars over the last 10 years.

    Stay safe!

  4. Guest March 31, 2020 at 2:03 pm #

    Ha…I know, I have pretty much exhausted YouTube and Netflix.

    You know you need to pick up a book when YouTube starts recommending videos from 2 years ago.

  5. Guest March 31, 2020 at 2:03 pm #

    You missed one – check your fave site every day! It is very important to have a positive anti-stress outlet and that’s what RCFA is, don’t underestimate yourself, Catherine! I don’t know how many makeup youtube tutorials I can possibly handle haha.

  6. Guest March 31, 2020 at 2:03 pm #

    It has taken you 10 years to write a comment, but it was very much worth the wait for me.

    I sit here, misty eyed and feeling truly blessed and humbled that I have created such a beautiful, respectful and loving community.

    And your comment about getting you through the hardest times rings true for me too. This site has been very therapeutic for me too, during break ups, financial hardship, you name it.

    Again, thank you for your message. Take care of yourself, and best wishes to all those closest to you.

    Catherine xxxx

  7. Guest March 31, 2020 at 2:03 pm #

    Dearest Miss Catherine,

    I remember the days when RCFA was still a blog, and like many of your faithful followers, have followed this site through the years, thick and thin.

    I’ve never commented before (I personally enjoy your views on the outfits as well as other readers’ comments, but I’ve never been inclined to write mine) and I regret that I didn’t whenever I had the chance. I did not say anything, although was deeply saddened when you took on your hiatus, and was immensely excited when you came back, yet I missed the opportunity to say anything at that time. Well that changes tonight.

    This site is perhaps the only site that I click on religiously everyday, because you have no idea the joy it brings me to see a diverse group of people, from all parts of the world come together to discuss fashion (as frivolous as some might think). RCFA has gotten me through the hardest times of my life, and I fully trust that this site will help me, and many of your followers, get through these trying times of COVID19, as it always has throughout the years. For this, I am immensely grateful, from the bottom of my sequined loving Elie Saab heart.

    Thank you Catherine.

    I pray that you, your family and all of our extended RCFA family wherever we all are, will always be safe and kept in good health, always.

    Sincerely,
    HM

    P.S. My apologies if this comment has nothing to do with the content of this site, but staying at home for prolonged hours has me inclined to comment…haha!

    Sending a bigger one back.

    Uplifting and therapeutic.

    Thank you

    Thank you for your hard work!
    In times like these we need to stay as positive as possible, and what’s more uplifting than fashion?
    Sending everyone a big virtual hug, stay safe

    Thank you for bringing a bit of light in these times Catherine! Visit your website several times a day, and always happy to see something new, so you make my day better with your posts!

    Hoping you are safe and healthy, greetings from Amsterdam!

    I had trouble posting comments. Now it seems alright, but last time I saw this article there were so many comments. They may have disappeared or I don’t know what I’m seeing…

  20. manja March 25, 2020 at 10:54 am #

    Dear Catherine
    I have been following you for a very long time and will continue to do so, will check your blog daily and I do hope it helps you keep going.
    Love your blog and your approach, take care, stay safe and warm regards from Split, Croatia to you and all the followers
    We will overcome, stay home Xxxx

  21. Hannah March 24, 2020 at 2:21 pm #

    Thank you FC for continuing to create such a lovely blog under such difficult circumstances 🙂
    I have been a follower for the past decade and have no plans to stop now!
    Having more time to properly read your blog is one of the real upsides of self-isolation, and it provides such a positive distraction.

    Sending lots of love and safety your way x

  22. Paula March 24, 2020 at 12:28 pm #

    I’m not sure how long I have been a fan (7 years? 8?) but I check RCFA first thing every morning. Like others I was sad when you took your hiatus and elated when you returned. Thanks for all you do Catherine. Stay safe everyone.

  23. Jess March 24, 2020 at 11:05 am #

    Catherine I used to check this site even when I knew you weren’t updating and will continue to do so through this pandemic! Thank you for your hard work, I look forward to the time we have more Red carpet fashion to critique! Keep safe, stay strong and thanks again.

  24. Lux March 24, 2020 at 10:15 am #

    Been following you a long time and will continue to visit (I’ll try once a day).

    Be safe!

  25. Lashae March 24, 2020 at 9:54 am #

    Sorry for the lateness but thank you so much Catherine for all your hard work on this site. I’ve been coming here for a while now and still will be coming here cause I love you and the site.

  26. Kat March 24, 2020 at 6:26 am #

    Thank you Catherine. For making us smile and dream and swoon over fashion. And for creating such a fun and safe space on the internet for us to share our taste and thoughts.
    Please stay safe, and well.
    Love from Australia,
    Kat

  27. Jacqui madelin March 24, 2020 at 6:13 am #

    Fashion as an escape when times are tough. This site was uplifting when recovering from serious surgery, and is just as uplifting now. Thank you!

  28. AngelaWu March 24, 2020 at 2:57 am #

    Let’s stay home. Eat, love and pray.
    Thanks to you too.

  29. SarahS95 March 24, 2020 at 2:02 am #

    Thank you Catherine for everything over the years – I first discovered this sight in 2009 when searching for what Olivia Wilde wore to the Golden Globes (I was a huge House fan haha). Since then I check the website every day (sometimes multiple times) so I’m glad that you are staying in positive spirits and continuing to share fashion comments with us.
    Having read this website for so long as well your fashion words are often in my mind when my mum or friends asks me what to wear to an event – I banned them from black shoes with a light or colourful dresses years ago ?
    Love the idea of ranking your favourite looks from different celebrities over the last 10 years! Maybe consider a best teen of the year looking back and to now and compare how their style has evolved as they are no longer teens?
    Will continue to check the site everyday and look forward to continuing to read your thoughts! All the best!!

  30. Limre March 24, 2020 at 1:55 am #

    Thank you Ms Catherine. Also, for bringing some light and joy in this situation thru you fashion feeds.

    Take care, stay safe and be well always. Love from Phils…

  31. Alina March 23, 2020 at 10:18 pm #

    Thank you! I have been following your site for 10 years+ now and it is truly the only blog that I still check daily (to be fair, multiple times a day). You have no idea how much I enjoy reading your posts and people’s comments. I’m usually not one to leave a comment, this might be my fourth or fifth comment in so many years, but I felt that you should know what an amazing thing you’re doing for people around the world through this site. I will continue to visit for as long as you decide to post! Stay safe everyone. Alina from Romania

  32. Catarina_M March 23, 2020 at 9:44 pm #

    Thank YOU Catherine. Working from home with two young children, for a week (feeling like a year) now, checking your site is a well deserved break and a string of hope.

    Please stay safe Catherine. Stay safe everyone.

  33. anonymous as always March 23, 2020 at 9:22 pm #

    I just realised my original post wasn’t uploaded!
    It should be us thanking you for keeping the blog active! It’s been a much needed and welcomed distraction!
    Stay safe everyone! Patience, and everything will be alright! Many wishes to all from Greece ??

  34. Nadine March 23, 2020 at 9:18 pm #

    It’s funny you should post this today, because I was just wondering about your “traffic.” Glad things are still going well, we certainly need normal right now. I don’t know how long I’ve been coming to this site, over six years at least & was REALLY bummed when you said it was over. But, I think it’s better than ever! Take care.

  35. maria March 23, 2020 at 7:50 pm #

    I follow your blog for almost 10 years! I love it and I always will. It’s part of my daily routine to check your blog out! <3 I hope you are doing well! a huge hug from Italy! baci

    • Catherine Kallon March 23, 2020 at 8:06 pm #

      Hello Maria, That is incredible support. Thanks a lot. I know Italy is one of the hardest hit countries, so I hope you and your family and friends are doing well, and hanging on in there. It can’t be easy.

      Love and hugs Catherine xxx

    I have 2 very small children while working from home without babysitters currently, so for me it’s not about keeping busy it’s about keeping sane. And visiting your site offers a moment of sanity and reprieve from this crazy world. Thank you!

      “RCFA has gotten me through the hardest times of my life” – I have tears in my eyes. I hope Catherine realizes that her site stopped being just an informative fashion blog long time ago, it’s much more than that.

      • Catherine Kallon March 23, 2020 at 8:14 pm #

        Thanks Nat39…as always you are one of my biggest champions, and it doesn’t go unnoticed.

        Love ya. xxx

      • HM March 24, 2020 at 4:58 am #

        Omg Nat39! Your comments are always the one that I look out for with every post for as long as I can remember. Just realized that there may be plenty of silver linings from what is happening…here’s to finally mustering the courage to say hi to people I’ve always admired.

        Stay safe and do take care wherever you are.

        • Nat39 March 27, 2020 at 9:10 pm #

      This is a great idea. I have been making a list for content ideas, and this is a great one.

      I am currently working on a post for Aishwarya Rai’s Cannes Film Festival journey, but top looks from individual stars from the last 10 years is awesome.

      I’ve even got myself a cute little home gym situation, so that helps too

      Stay safe xxx

  42. Iva Tomic March 23, 2020 at 4:17 pm #

    Thank you Catherine for keeping us entertained while ‘working from home’.

    I actually love the polls for the Best Awards Season Look as well as the Red Carpet Wish Lists.

    I would love to see your speculations/predictions/wishlists for the now canceled/postponed events such as Met Gala or Cannes.

    • Megan March 23, 2020 at 4:31 pm #

      Agree with Iva! I’d enjoy those posts. Take care FC <3

    • Catherine Kallon March 23, 2020 at 8:20 pm #

      My pleasure.

      This is a great idea.

      I did stop doing these a while back as celebs always opted for custom looks, but it will be fun to do these again now I have nothing but time 😀

  43. Pheephee March 23, 2020 at 4:14 pm #

    Great tips! Thanks 🙂

    I find its also a great time to look over all RCFAs past 10 years or so of BDOTW’s, and all the previous BDOTY’s. And the individual events…..and brands….and celebs.
    teehee 🙂

    stay safe everyone!
