angiekje 's thoughts:

name Harriet Rose Gunner (cityofbugs) / nicole ford (starryeyed)
location Portsmouth, England
age both 18
studying both BTEC National Diploma Fashion & Clothing, Photography A Level
boyfriend Yes :) / yes, for 3 years!!
sign Gemini / Pisces
favourite item One of my fave items is my leather shorts :) / all of my shoes, i have an obsession with shoes!

Real life best friends cityofbugs and starryeyed are both very hot at the moment in Chictopia-land after continuously lounging in the style gallery. Cityofbugs carries the very contagious eBay-virus (I actually got contaminated after I this interview) and starryeyed is dealing with the exact same problem I’m experiencing with for years and years: a serious condition of shoe-fever.

Where did you two meet?
S- She went to the same school as my boyfriend and he was really good friends with her boyfriend, I got an invitation to one of her party’s which was when we met.
C- I loved her as soon as I met her! Our boyfriend’s used to be in a band together.
S- After we met, we both went to see them for support and just grew to be really good friends :)

Starryeyed how did you decide to join cityofbugs on chictopia?
S – I got forced into it by Harriet haha.
C – I showed starryeyed my chictopian blog, and she loved it. I kept telling her she should get one, and then one day I created her one!
S – I am glad she did! We were getting ready for a night out and she was showing me the website, at first I was unsure and didn’t think I’d ever update… but after a few posts and browsing around at other people I grew to like it, and now I’m posting nearly every day!
C – It’s great to have a fellow chictopian to choose outfits with you and take your pictures. And it’s so much fun to have someone to talk to about chictopia.

How do you think your friendship influences you on chictopia?
C – I am influenced by starryeyed every time I see her. We wear things in different ways so I can always get new ideas from her! I don’t think any of my other friends share the love for fashion – Nicole is the only person who does, so I’m very happy to have her on Chictopia!
S – Harriet will tell me if she doesn’t like something of mine or if a photo is bad and I do the same. I wouldn’t have anyone else to share this experience with. It’s our own thing, we can do something together that none of our other friends know about and enjoy it!

What do you love about each others’ style?
C – What I love about starryeyed’s style is that she always has a hint if edginess to her looks. Her outfits are chic and well put together, and she can pull off a lot of different styles.
S – I love everything about Harriet’s style. I really like how she just wears what she likes and does not care what anyone else thinks. She doesn’t have one set style and is very versatile which is brilliant… She loves her wedges and socks :)

Is there a piece of clothing your real Chictopian friend owns that you really would love to have in your wardrobe?
S – Erm, all of her clothes, to be perfectly honest, but I really love her leather shorts and all of her shoes! if only we were the same shoe size :(
C – Nicole has so many items that I wish I could have! We are the same size in clothing so we can borrow each other’s clothes, I would really love it if she gave me her leather trousers! ;) – Oh and she has a very impressive shoe collection, but as Nicole just said: we are different shoe sizes :(

Maybe you can make a deal on the shorts and trousers then :) Harriet, you’re the princess of eBay, teach us how to score a bargain?
C – It’s very simple actually! Just type in a brand you want to look for, then change the settings to “time ending soonest” and you can find a lot of good buys for just £0.99! They are ending shortly so nobody will bid on them. At the moment I am wearing a real leather vintage bomber jacket (brown) that I won for £0.99 last winter! It is such a good feeling when you find an item like that.

You are both studying fashion and photography at the same school at the moment. Tell us, why did you decide to change careers?
C – Personally, my interest in Fashion has been growing ever since I left school 2 years ago. I have been working as a “Finance Specialist” and one day I realised that it was probably my last chance to do something like this and that I should just go for it! I really love the course at the moment and would recommend it to anyone who wants to get started in Fashion.
S – I was studying English Literature, Language and Business Studies two years before and I’ve got my qualifications of these subjects. Harriet then told me about this course and I chose to do it too as it is what I’ve always wanted to do! I love the fashion course, we’ve already started to design a dress.

Any last words?
S – Chictopia is an amazing community where everyone is given a chance no matter how they dress or what they like! If only real life was this kind! It is a place where people can express themselves and not be afraid… I find it interesting how many people have developed from their first photo that they ever posted! Chictopia is inspiring!
Thanks Angie :D

I also like seeing where some people came from and where they are now. It’s so interesting. Starryeyed, Cityofbugs, I would love to thank you both for this interview and thank you for showing real Chictopian friendship!! I would like to thank everyone for reading!! Now go multiply yourselves by inviting friends on Chictopia and start enjoying the love of fashion together!!
