Sweet Dreams Are Made Of These.

From wayyyy back at the beginning of summer!
I am the world's worst blogger, I know. But I am working on it :P
A lovely day spent thrifting and eating sushi with Kate and Mitzi.
I know I've said it before, but I am honestly so thankful I got the chance to meet Mitzi in NY.
The two of us have become thick as thieves, so to speak...and I have Chictopia to thank for that!

Thrifted top, belt. Old Navy skirt.
H&M shoes. F21 necklace.

This dress lay hidden in my "sewing pile" since a roadtrip last summer...but since I recovered it I've been wearing it nonstop! So comfy, so bright and delightfully kitschy.
My mom actually shortened it a couple of weeks ago, so it`s about 3 inches shorter now. Which means it`s on even heavier rotation in my wardrobe.
Grace and I spent the day eating cupcakes and generally basking in the sun. Perfect day, if you ask me!

Thrifted dress, sunglasses.
Aldo sandals.

Shake, Shimmy and Shout.

It's been a while since I've done one of these...
I apologize profusely for the chaotic state of life I'm in.
New city, new job and lots of new experiences!
But I am having a lot of fun :)

This outfit post is an oldie, back when my friend Adam had his super sick pompadour.
Circumstances lead to it's demise (sweltering heat) but wasn't it just the most delicious thing you've seen?
I love a good pomp!
A bajillion thanks to Valerie for the lovely Nenee Cupcake skirt she sent in our exchange!
It is my staple "going out" skirt, and I feel amazing everytime I wear it.

PS. The last photo is a "Miss Cleo" type pose, just for all of you ;)

Nenee skirt. H&M top.
Old Navy shoes. Claire's flower.

Street Seen!

Another random feature :)
I know I must be boring you all, but it seems like they keep happening at the same time.
I was out on Granville Street last night when Style Quotient approached me to take a street style photo for his blog. I wear this dress often, but for some reason I barely post outfit pictures in it...

Check out the post here!

PS. Keep your eyes peeled early next week for real outfit posts ;)

A Quick Hello!

I still have no internet at my new house!
I'm currently typing this from the nearest Starbucks (yay for free wi-fi).
Normal updates should resume within the week...

MTV's style blog featured me on their blogger looks of the week, check it out here!
Thanks so much for the shout out :)

Chictopia was featured on the Today Show yesterday morning, which is pretty cool.
Especially because my picture was on!!! For a good 20 seconds! It's at 3:18...if anyone is wondering.
So weird, my face has graced American television!

Thank you Kristine of Eli Presentacion for alerting me about the feature,
and sending me screen captures!

Yup Yup Yup.

Streetstyle Aesthetic knows where it is at.
Eclecticism at it's best!

My Bells Are Just Keeping The Beat.

It's moving time! I'm half in Abbotsford and half in Vancouver, so everything is kind of everywhere. I bought a hopefully I can sort of keep up with internet like things.

Some time ago, a couple of friends and I formed a band of sorts, in which I did vocals and accessory rhythm (tambourine and shakers, haha). We ended up playing a benefit concert in June for The Ride To Conquer Cancer. The concert went really well, and I wish that I could continue playing music with this amazing group. Sadly, we are on an indefinite haitus...but alas, it was good while it lasted!

Thrifted blouse, skirt, shoes, belt.
Handmade floral wreath.
