The Chictopia 10 conference was inspiring as a non-blogger. I don't have much experience blogging nor have I ventured out of Chictopia - my first experience. The care the conference speakers put into their blogs and the new way it's being taken seriously as a form of social media set my curiousity alight.
I found out yesterday, March 1, that I am awarded Style Icon standing for March on Chictopia!!!! I could not be more excited!!!!!! I could not have done this without the awe-inspiring support of the Chictopia community. "I couldn't have done it without you" is horrifically cliche, however, it's quite literal. Without the votes, comments, and members becoming my fan I would not be Style Icon. Thank-you Chictopia and fellow Chictopians! You are the best!!!
I'm also very pleased with myself and how my style has improved. When I turned 21 two Augusts ago I decided that I was a lady now and I would not wear jersey t-shirts I would wear blouses. I developed my love for lipstick at that same time. I love how feminine applying and wearing lipstick makes me feel - no matter what the shade!
(I still wear t-shirts, obviously, but I have moved towards my image of ladyhood.)
I got this trench from Costa Blanca years ago and love it!
I thrifted this skirt on my trip with Lydia. It's not a contemporary length but I love the classic cut. I bought it for the colouring and fabric. I checked the tag when I got home and it reads "Jeannette Miner/Paris/MADE IN FRANCE." This is an incredible find for a Western Canadian thrift store.
Hello blogging world!
I also received a novel in the mail today. Vladimir Nabakov is my favourite writer. His work is hard to find. (WHICH IS A HORRIFIC SHAME.) I found this copy of Glory, which I have never heard of, on Etsy. I love his prose; it's soso beautiful.
"A tactile sensation is a blind spot; we touch in silhouette." -Nabakov, Ada, pg. 81
