geekgoddess_joli 's Thoughts:

yey, first chictopia post!

i’ve been on the site for about 3 months now and i thought i should probably end my anonymity and lurking ways…

…and start going the path of…art and self-expression

(OR vanity and self-promotion?depends on how you look at it! haha)

o o

so anyway, this is an old pic from June 2008.

went on a special press tour of a cruise liner

bought the dress last minute coz my brother dear (who is the press person) just told me about the event the night before! and since i was an eager beaver who wanted a free ride on a cruise liner, i happily obliged.

got it on 40% discount from my friend who works at a local designer boutique called Luca (Powerplant mall, Rockwell.)

despite the last minute shopping, good thing i got a dress that fit me well- that was not sleeveless coz i wasn’t into baring my arms at the time. plus it came in one of my fave colors! plum purple always seems to suit my olive-toned skin :)

not in photo – silver bangle on my right wrist.

i almost wore a silver headband with this look but i thought it made me look too blair waldorf-y (gossip girl) so i opted against it. some looks just don’t feel right no matter what you do
maybe, it’s also coz i’ve always thought of myself as more of a serena or vanessa when it comes to style. (read: boho slash urban)
would’ve loved to have paired this with maybe silver headstrings…if i only had more time.

_DARN, the dress gets folds when u’re seated (coz of the fabric- and it’s a lil loose on the waist) but i swear it looks good standing up.

i tend to get stuff one size bigger-im a size 4 all over but tend to get 6 for my tops to accommodate meh chest area- yes the perpetual dilemma of girls with boobies!

BUT i ain’t complaining. oh well, just gotta appreciate the curves God has given me. i ain’t got not no booty so might as well play up what i’ve got. :P_

o o

sorry for being so chatty – tis my first post! forgive me, alright? :)

plus, this look is fairly safe for my taste, will post more daring stuff soon. :)

yeah so many other options for styling this dress. too bad i didn't have enough time to grab a big ol necklace that would go well with this. think it turned out great but i'll also change it up next time :)

I don't know anything about Gossip girl, but I like the dress! Yeay another girl with breasts. Thankfully I'm running, though, and they're getting smaller!
geekgoddess_joli on October 15
thanks! hey, make sure they don't get too small. we have to represent for all the curvy sisters out there :P
