Last week we threw a party with one of our favorite local partners - Crossroads. Champagne, great music, and a vast selection of second hand and vintage clothing for us to sift through, as clothes lovers, we could not have asked for a more ideal evening.
Shopping parties are, by nature, difficult to dress for, as they require outfits as fashionable as they are functional.Thus, in preparation for the shopping party, the Chictopia Team decided to take on a styling challenge. Each team member was assigned a classic style similar to their own–glam, rocker, hipster, and boho–to fully embody for the event. Here is how the showdown went.
