Real People Baubles: Credible Chictopian, Dominique Tiu

Ahhhh Chictopia. I never heard of this till last year (for obvious reasons:  1. the age gap  2. for being an anti-techie before this blog was created).  I was personally hooked looking at worldwide sartorial takes of REAL people who have the passion to share personal style.  And then... I found Dominique. A twenty-something stylist, model, marketing specialist and an uprising online icon here in the blogosphere.

We asked Dominique if we could take a peek at her Summer Baubles. She agreed.  But to our surprise, she gave us a material that is sooo post worthy, I am suggesting young fashion/style aspirants to read through. 

Today's post is a little bit of everything. From picking the right set of baubles, to collecting bags, make-up musts and a WITTY, HONEST and INSIGHTFUL take on FASHION in general.

"the thing that I learned from fashion is not to foster the atmosphere of "exclusivity." Rather, fashion transcends various industry-imposed stipulations--trends, themes, colors, designs, brands, etc. Because fashion is about expression and story-telling, I've learned that there's no such thing as "bad fashion." "

Tomorrow, I will let you know how Dominique's definition of fashion somehow made an impact on me.  I will share my thoughts as I think it merits a separate post. I never thought that this post would actually make me stop, think and re-assess why I am still doing this.

For now all I can say is...thank you Dominique for this opportunity. What a way to learn. How I wish blogging was already in when I was your age!

  1. Hello! Thank you for this as well! It was an honor to have been featured on your site.

    Likewise, I'm sure a lot of people share the same insight/s as I do. I'm still trying to explore my own sense of style and my own thoughts on the industry and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in it.

    Once again, thank you for the opportunity. I would love to read your thoughts on Fashion as well. :)
