Playsuit obsession

I am not sure what is… but I am obsessed with playsuits, rompers, one-piece.. Whatever it is called, I love it. I can’t stop admiring this half dress half shorts ensemble. Maybe it's because of the playful feel or even the girlish feel to it but I can’t get enough of it. You can't also deny that it is one very easy piece to wear. You just put in on, accessorize with your favorite heels, wedge, booties or even flats… add a hat and jewelry and you are good to go.
So...what’s your playsuit look?

Vintage project 1 & 2

I bought these two vintage dresses along with other great vintage finds. First vintage project is to turn this blah beige lace dress into something fabulous. The goal is to make this $6.99 dress look like it can be a dress from a magazine dress;)
I recorded a how to alter the dress but crazy me did not check the amount of minutes on my camera. lol. So it turns out  I only have a couple of mins of how to make this dress :/ Please click on the link to see my initial video.
 I guess.... better luck next time for me when it comes to video

My vintage finds this past week: Red leather jacket $7.99, orange suede fringe bag $4.99, yellow sheer polka dot top $8.00, beige lace dress with pearls $6.99 and black floral dress $6.99 all from

Jeffrey Cravings

I have been eyeing these two Jeffrey Campbels for a good minute. It’s one of those.....should I get it or not?

Jeffrey Campbell Lita $149…It has a gorgeous suede leather material and the height makes us shortys tall but I am still unsure of the shape. I think it kind of looks like clown shoes. I am hoping my FB friends will help me decide.

Jeffrey Campbell El Carmen $125.. I love the design. It makes me want to say I am proud to be an American. The height like the Lita allows us shortys to feel like one of those model but what do you think of the design? Is it something you can wear all the time or just for occasions?

These are the things I contemplate about…. But man… I do crave em.

Both are available to buy at

Summer Fringe

Fringe is back in a big way.
It can have  a 20's flappers, boho or cowgirl-ish feel. It's just a fun fun trend. Wear the trend as an accessories for an accent to your outfit or try it with an outfit piece. Whatever look you are going for, it's best to try it in small doses to not look to costume-y.

Papaya fringe top, $19.99 papaya stores
Mossimo denim shorts jeans, $19.00 target stores
Knotted rop head piece, $5.90

For those who want something studded like the Jeffrey Campbell, I cam across this studded booties from Amiclubwear. If you don’t want to spend big bucks to get this studded bootie trend, get it here. 

It has the same look but for way a lesser price as long as you don't mind it not being the real weather. Thanks to my friend Latoi for giving me her store credit. Now I have these cute booties added to my collection :D can't wait to get it and you can too!

but if you want the real Jeffrey Campbell TICK version, get it here.

Never apologize for who you are….

I’ve learned through out the years that many people will judge you. Whether the judgment is bad or good, you must learn not to apologize for who you are…for what you have become and what you can do for yourself

For instance…. I love art and fashion. I use my photos and blogs to show my love for art and fashion. This may annoy some people but you know what… I don’t give a f*#k. If you don’t like it, you don’t have to look at my FB page, Chictopia page, or blog page.  I have stopped apologizing or feeling bad for who I am because in the end… those who actually matter in your life… loves your for everything you are.

This picture of me is many moons ago.. ok well last year. It was the last b-day of me in my 20’s. I am not a simple girl so I tend to over dress for occasions. This was just my b-day photo dress.
