Annebeth 's Thoughts:

Hi guys! First I want to congratulate the style icons of the month, they all SO deserve it! Luluetty, Haiku_ambulance and Franco_fernandez are some girls who’ve been on my radar for a little while, and Lanton has been consistently amazing for months and months, I wondered when she was going to get her style icon award! And TaylorSterling and chellelaabelle’s pictures always look like something a team of professionals cooked up!

Chictopia is amazing for uniting us normal girls who strive to be more with these goddesses who inspire us every day. The great thing is that we are all a goddess to some normal girl. Everybody inspires somebody here, there is no true heriarchy. We are all real girls.

And now for my outfit: drop waist dresses are one of those items that may feel tricky to some, I’m one of those girls who always tries to accentuate her natural waiste, especially since I don’t have that much of a waist to begin with! But these drop waist androgynous dresses seem to work for girls who are a bit straight up and down too. It’s elegant without being too dressy, the loose fit always gives it a bit of a comfortable, casual vibe. I love that. This dress is in one of my all time favorite garmentcolors: coral. More vibrant and lively than red, and not as played out. Red can get cheesy sometimes. Wonder how a color can get cheesy? I love the dress with this red (yes) umbrella. The fact that the light shining through makes it look pinkish red reminds me of asian stuff. Like those gorgeous fish in The Cherry Blossom Girl’s post from a couple of days ago.

Anyway, I wanted to wear these polkadotted tights and it struck me at once: the most natural thing to do with them, is put together a flamenco-inspired look! I don’t know if those traditional flamenco dancers wore dotted tights, but it would look amazing to have dotty legs underneath all the polkadotted layers of skirts! So I went for a bright color and a dress with some ruffles here and there, and put a flower in my hair et voila, this is my flamenco-ish look! Ignore the fact that no human is able to dance elegantly in these boots. It’s not like I’m actually going to fetch my castagnettes and go tapping down the street.

this is a really cute look! love the red dress and dotted tights! I can't wear drop waist dresses because I have a small chest and waist and then pretty large hips so I just look more like a pear when I wear them... it suits you really well though, this coral one, and the white one you wore not so long ago too!
