iamappleorchard 's Thoughts:

Last night I got the excited news that I was chosen to be a Chictopia Style Icon! I cannot even begin to express how happy/shocked/grateful I am. It has been an absolute dream of mine to be a style icon since I started Chictopia a year ago. Thank you so much to everyone in the process! You all are so wonderful.

As for this look: I finally bought the lace button up from H&M that I have been lusting over for months. I never initially bought the piece because it was too expensive, but two weeks ago when I found it on the clearance rack for only $7! I felt as if the purchase was made for me because it was the only one they had left, and it was my size! And even though it’s not the black lace button up, the navy is such a perfect color and it will add variety to my (almost) all-black wardrobe! In fact, I’m very pleased that this was the only color available, because otherwise I would have never looked at the navy one!

And yes, I do know I have been absolutely wearing this blazer entirely too often! It’s such a great fit and it looks wonderful with everything I own. So for now, I am in search of another blazer to alternate this one with!

Erika! I can't tell you how truly excited I am that you're finally a style icon! I don't know anyone else who deserves it more than you do, and that's the honest truth. Not only do you have one of the most impeccable styles I've ever seen, but you are one of the most and genuine people I have ever met in my whole life. I look up to you and admire you so much, and I couldn't be happier for you!

Congratulations yet again on being a style icon!!! I'm so happy for you, because you truly deserve it!! I'm guessing this is your celebration outfit, because I have to say, it is reaally amazing!! I love how you've made it chic in a simple way thanks to the lack of actual accessories, but still really interesting and stylish. Definitely faved!! :)
