joannaladrido 's Thoughts:

First off, I am pleased to announce I officially took the plunge to the next level with my own blog. While Chictopia will always be my home and one true blog love slash addiction, my blog will store more photos and random stuff about my life (or something like it)! So follow my fashion adventures and check out:

http://joannaladrido.blogspot.com

Moving on, Silver and gray toned outfit which I wore on a Wednesday Hmmmppph-day which was surprisingly made better by a frilly and ruffled satin vest (accompanied by the two best words combined ever: HALF-OFF) at Topshop’s End of Season Sale. I found the entire top and skirt ensemble from the Topshop Sale at 50% off. While everyone flocked to Forever21, I remained loyal and true to my true loves, Zara and Topshop…tried, tested and never failing. These brands have stayed with me through thick and thin (literally) and I saved the frenzied Friday first sale day to visit these two brands. I did however hover to Forever21 already with my BFF Nina and so far so good. It was colossal and i was overwhelmed with everything in the store.

Back to the outfit, I found these pieces at said Topshop Private Sale and loved how perfectly they went together as I was trying them on my makeshift public dressing room. My aversion to fitting rooms fascinates some people to this day and I loved it how a college friend of mine joined me and shared the mirror as I was trying on.

I am lastly pleased to announce the humdrum drudgery stage is officially over and the good times are here and they shall last, thus the blog title, Dog Days are Over. Good things come to those who hustle and I am just so thankful for all the good things coming our way! I wore this on an epic day me and my business partner slash BFF signed a contract for something in the works (on it development stage) but we’re still keeping that on the downlow for the meantime! Headed on to wear this to a family dinner date and a fun night out with friends. It was a busy yet very productive day!

Hope you’re all having a greaaaat week! xx
