Pink_Champagne 's Thoughts:

Hello, everyone!

So origionally, this post was just a brief ramble about the weather, etc, but I’ve been meaning to write a public note of apology for a long time, and figured now was a good time to do it.

As some of you who have been on chictopia a long time may know, during the winter of 2008 and the spring of 2009 I was fervently rooting to be a chictopia Style Icon. Now, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to be a Style Icon, and posting on your chicblog entries for people to add you, but I went the extreme and unethical route by sending messages to my chictopia friends and random users, asking them to add me to their favorites, in order that I might become a Style Icon. What I did was against chictopia ettique, not to mention stupid.

If I really wanted to be a Style Icon, shouldn’t I be one because people took it on their own to add me as a favorite, not because I asked them? Being a Style Icon shouldn’t be like a competitive political campaign. If you really have the unqiue and personal style that a Style Icon possesses, chictopians will naturally add you as a favorite. Even if I had become a Style Icon, I would have always known, in the back of my mind, that I wasn’t where I was because people wanted me to be a Style Icon; I would have been a Style Icon because of my own pushiness and determination.

More importantly, what I did violated chictopia’s community rules. Chictopia is all about a fun and relaxed fashion atmosphere. Bugging you to add me as a favorite must have been so annoying to both chictopia users and chictopia’s editors. I truly apologize for the annoyance and tension I caused, and, Style Icon or not, am grateful to be a part of this wonderful and blossoming fashion community.

~Hope Adela

Love your look. Those tights will get the looks! Fabulous color. And it's great that you have looked back and found that style is not about propaganda. Acknowledging your error, I think, is a true sign of a style icon.
