SoapsStyle on Hiatus

First of all I am so very sorry I have been MIA these past weeks. I have been very touched by your concern and kind words, thank you.

I am perfectly healthy, in fact probably the best I have felt in 4 years. A lot of you may not know that I started SoapsStyle a couple of years ago, when I was sentenced to my couch with a rare paralyzing disorder which re-aquainted me with both the Bold and the Beautiful and with fashion.

I started this website initially so I could find clothes to buy that the actors were wearing on the episodes, and much to my surprise, so were all of you. I developed a loyal, smart, kind, funny and supportive reader base and you all kept me looking for those clothes day after day!

Time went on and I am happy to report my health slowly improved, near to normal, well, I will never be ‘normal’ but I wasn’t normal even before I got sick! In any event, my rare disease and my blog, B&B and YOU have given me a new perspective on life. I retired from my corporate job, and have been working on opening a fashion boutique in home city here in Madison, WI.

As much as I have loved writing SoapsStyle, I do have to generate a living, and unfortunately SoapsStyle was entirely a labor of love, that was nearly a full time job. I am sorry to disappoint you all, I know you all look forward to seeing where to find the fashions. I was hoping to be able to do both but there are just not enough hours in the day!

I have decided to put SoapsStyle on hold. I am going to get iona boutique up and running and see how things are going, and revisit SoapsStyle probably in the new year. We’ll see what’s happening with Hope/Steffy/Liam then too…

If you are interested in seeing what is going on with the boutique, (we have a lot of B&B inspired clothing brands ,shocker!), you can follow us on:

I would love for you to follow my journey. We are keeping it a brick & mortar boutique for the time being, but may have an online store in the future. We will ship though!

I can’t thank you enough for all of your support for SoapsStyle, and your friendship and camaraderie in many ways. It means a great deal to me, and I truly believe helped me in my healing process during a very difficult time. Thank you! Stay positive. Be gracious to the actors on the show. Be individual with your style, make it your own. Be the people your pets think you are. Hopefully see you soon, and I hope to see you around the iona pages! Warm regards, pamela xoxo

  1. I am so happy for you. I have been disabled due to part a car accident and Lyme. Lyme has taken a lot from me and my body. I just found out that I have POTS as well. You will be missed. I would like to thank you for the time you have put into your page and helping us to be able to locate the fashion. My Y&R Fan page will feel the lost. On the flip side we can not be happier for you with your health and your own store. May God Bless you and keep you well and may your store bring you success and joy.

  2. So sorry to hear about your health issues, but glad to hear you are improving. I am a Bold & Beautiful fan and stumbled across your website by accident. I am amazed to hear that this was a hobby of yours. You have a talent in finding the “Real Deal”. I’m going to miss your website.
    Good luck with your boutique.

  3. I would like to say thank you for keeping the blog going for as long as you did. I have enjoyed regularly reading your updates. As I am located in Australia, I used to love logging on and seeing what fashion was coming up on the show before it aired here. I am sad it is coming to an end, however I glad to hear it is because you are feeling better!

    Can’t wait to see what you sell via your brand new store. Hopefully you will ship to your Australian fans!! :-) xxx
