barbroandersen 's thoughts:

I seriously never thought I’d become a Style Icon here on Chictopia.com – but guess what happened? It’s such an honor, I can’t really believe it. I joined Chictopia back in 2009, on February 2nd to be exact. I didn’t have the courage to upload a photo until almost six months later – that’s almost two years ago! Man have I come a long way since then! Or, at least I think I have! My very best experience with Chictopia was of course when I won a trip to San Francisco and got to hang with the awesome creators of this community in February (read here: Stylesipped with Chictopia in San Francisco). It was a once in a lifetime experience which I will treasure forever!

Thank you so much for the support; both to you and the Chictopia team! You guys rock!

Simplicity is my keyword today. I’ve been feeling rather uninspired lately, which is why it’s been quiet around here. I’m trying to give myself a boost of energy by wearing vivid colors – like this orange beauty from Gina Tricot. I fell in love with it the instant I walked into the store last week, and since I actually won a gift certificate in a styling contest last month, getting it was a no-brainer!
