This is a big week for us! We’re kicking off the new year with lots of exciting news to share. As a start, many of you probably noticed the American Apparel campaign featuring Linda-, Melissa, and Karla three of our familiar faces here on Chictopia.
Also, Australian Cosmopolitan just released a two-page spread on Chictopia for their February 09 issue. Featuring FlairtoRemember and LadySmaggle, the magazine praised the community and interviewed these “everyday fashion icons” about their experiences on Chictopia. Photos to come…
Chic Rewards has been a huge success in our community and is here to stay as long as our community supports it! We have more products to add later this month. Stay tuned!
Finally, along with all the praise we received from established publications like Teen Vogue and Mashable, we’ve also noticed some commentary that questions the point of our community and what we do. So we figured we would take this opportunity to reiterate. (Looks like other bloggers have already done so – this is very flattering).
Chictopia is a fashion community. All of you have access to the same tools to celebrate, support and advise each other in our personal style. And what you guys have done with our site is beyond incredible. Because of all of your creativity and energy, we’re getting lots of positive press, lots of forward-thinking sponsorships, and LOTS of fantastic opportunities to involve you guys in some pretty cool things. Whether your interests on Chictopia involve styling, journalism, design or if you’re just here to peep other outfits, we’re here to support you in whatever you want to do. We hope you take away useful things from this community, and we are here to listen if there are ways you think we can improve. We not fashion experts, and nor do we claim to be them. We know our own styles the best and we do best to showcase our work and learn from others. That’s all.
Welcome to Chictopia, we have a lot of fun here, and we invite you to join the party.
