I am so super happy the challenges are back and in full effect. Of course I am already behind lol but I did want to post them up in any how. This was last week's challenge and if you know me then you now I was going to pick the 40s/50s because that was the Pin Up era. I think I may have been a burlesque dancer in my past life haha.
This look is based off of an outfit that I wore and will be on my YouTube Channel this week for my Fashion Dare Tag. The green and leopard work really well together and this makes for a very fun stylish outfit. But beware it is not for the undaring.
Este look esta basado de unos de mis atuendos que estara en mi canal de YouTube esta semana para mi segmento Atreveos de Moda. El pantalon verde va muy bien con la blusa de estampado de leopardo. La combinacion hace que este look se vea muy a la moda y divertido. Pero ojo este look es para las atrevidas.

1) Name/ Age/ Current place of residence/ Website if any?
My name is Mireya ( mee-reh-yah) I am 23 years old and I live in Phoenix Arizona. My blog is Chictopia.com/MireyaG
2) How would you describe your personal style?
I don't like to confine myself to one style, I like mixing it up. I love to mix classic pieces with funky ones to give the outfit some interest, I am currently loving piling on a bunch of different bangles to add some sparkle to my outfit .... who doesn't love a little sparkle? :)
3) Trends you are loving?
I am loving boho chic and tribal
4) Trends you dislike?
Monogram overload! It's okay to have one item at a time but nothing looks worse to me then someone who is decked out in logos from head to toe.
5) How do you shop? On a budget? Online? High end stores? Thrifting?
I LOVE thrifting! I get such a high from finding a piece that I know is super high quality and could possibly have an awesome history for under $10! My latest finds include a vintage violet Versace dress and a silk print Diane Von Furstenberg dress which I paid less than 5 dollars for. I always make sure to go thrifting on days when there are sales like Wednesday dollar day at my local Goodwill in which one certain colored tag is $1... no matter what the item is or its original price! If I see something that I love but doesn't necessarily fit I take it home and break out my sewing machine :) There are also times when I find a bag that I have to have at a high end store like Gucci but I make sure to only pay retail for items that are classic and I know will last. I must say that bags are my weakness...
I recommend scouting out the latest sales if you want high end designer items at a good price. My favorite is the yearly Barney's Warehouse Sale, I scored 3 pair of gorgeous Louboutins for the price of 1 last year!
6) Rules you always follow when putting together an outfit?
I don't have any rules when putting an outfit together but I do like to have a variety of textures and I feel it is important to not be afraid of color. I love putting monochromatic outfits together.. having different shades of the same color in different textures and fabrics makes an outfit really fun and interesting without having to think too hard about what colors go together.
7) Music you're currently listening to?
I love all kinds of music, there is not one style I don't enjoy. I feel music is a bit like fashion in which you can express yourself through your art, whatever it may be.
8) Favorite Brands/ Stores?
I love Gucci, Diane Von Furstenberg, Versace, Moschino, and Marc Jacobs to name a few. My favorite store by far is goodwill, it is such a thrill to walk into a store not knowing what great things you're going to find and walk out with pieces that are unique and have a history to them.
9) What factors do you consider when getting dressed? Mood/ the occasion/ weather?
I live in Arizona so it is important for me to wear fabrics that breathe and are comfortable. I tend to dress up no matter the occasion because I believe the better you feel about the way your dressed the better your day goes... I know if I don't feel right about the way I'm dressed my day is just "blah".
10) Is there some other detail you'd like to share with the readers about your style? Something you like to let them know?
Don't be afraid to try new things! I love experimenting with my clothes and seeing what kinds of things I can come up with by mixing and matching my favorite pieces. You don't have to have a lot of clothes to be a fashionista, you can give your most classic pieces a completely different look by just accessorizing differently. You can wear a LBD for a dinner date with a cute pair of heels and also wear it during the day with a denim vest and some flats to completely change the look without having to spend a dime on another dress. Make sure to utilize all your options and make the most of your wardrobe. I am currently loving tying my printed scarves to my handbags to add some pattern and interest to an outfit, so don't put away your scarves during the summer! Most importantly, feel good in your clothes and have fun!
Michael Antonio Women's Tarmon Platform Sandal... Hot or Not?
Hello friends! This another little outfit I wore during my getaway. It is a Navy blue shirt dress. It is almost like a linen material but now quite. I purchased this a few years back from Target. I love the fit and it is very comfortable. the sleeves roll up and it ties in the back. My sandals are also from Target I bought them online for 10 bucks!
On this day we went out rented a couple of bikes; which got stolen by the way, horrible I know right?! They cut straight through the lock! Any who we also went to the movies to see 30 minutes or less.... eh its an ok film and we road our bikes around South Beach.
Hola! Este es otro look que use durante mis vacas. Es un vestido tipo camisa en un color azul marino. Es casi como un lino pero no lo es. Lo compre ya hace un par de años atrás de la tienda Target. Me encanta como luce y que tan cómodo es. Las mangas se enrolan y se amarra atrás. Mis sandalias son de la tienda Target también las compre por internet por solo 10 dólares!
En este día alquilamos un par de bicicletas y les cuento que se la robaron. Qué horror no?! Le cortaron el candado pero que se puede hacer. Igual fuimos al cine a ver la película 30 minutes or less... no me impresiono y montamos bicicletas por la cuidad de South Beach.

Hey guys as most of you know I went on a mini getaway with my husband to South Beach, Miami, FL. We had a wonderful time equal parts fun and relaxation. I want to share with you all of the outfits that I wore while on my trip.
This first outfit I call airport chic... The cardi I have on was a Christmas gift from my sister by Material Girl. Since both airports and airplanes tend to get cold I thought it would be good to throw this on. My top, a stripe tank from Forever 21 plays against the polka dot cardi to create a fun relaxed look.
My boyfriend jeans I bought from the Goodwill last year I want to say they are American Eagle but I am not sure since they did not have a tag looks like they may have come straight from the warehouse as a sample, they were brand new and did not have buttons not even the button holes. But I love them and they were only $15 bucks!
My sandals are just some silver thong sandals from payless I also bought those last year maybe even the year before. Sandals are good for travel since they are comfortable and metalics go well with just about every summer outifit so I put them on in case I needed to thow them on with another outfit.
Overall I loved how this look turned out and it is perfect for traveling hope you all like what I wore!
Hola, como ya saben estube en una pequeñas vacas con mi esposo, fuimos para South Beach, Miami, FL. Fue muy divertido y a la vez relajante. Quiero compartir con ustedes los atuendos que use durante mis vacaciones.
El primer atuendo lo llamo aeropuerto chic... la suerita que llevo fue un regalo de Navidad, departe de mi hermana. Es de la marca Material Girl. Como los aeropuertos igual que los aviones tienden hacer frio pense que seria muy buena idea usar un abrigito. Mi franela de rayas es de la tienda Forever 21 y me gusta como combina con los lunares de la suerita hace que el look se vea divertido y relajado.
Mis boyfriend jeans son de una tienda de segunda mano, Good Will los compre el verano pasado. No estoy muy segura de que marca son ya que no tenian sello. Eran nuevos tan nuevos que parece que vinieron de la factoria, ni tenian los botones ni los ollitos para los botones. Me encantan solo me costaron 15 dolares!
Mis sandalias son basicas y platiadas tambien las compre el año pasado de la tienda Payless o tal vez el año anit pasado. Sandalias son buenas para viajar porque son comodas y ya que son platiadas puenden combinar con casi todos los looks de verano asi puedo entre cambiar las con otros looks que empaque.
Me gusto mucho este look y es perfecto para viajar. Espero que les haiga gustado lo que me puse!
This is just a cute little outfit I thought would be nice to wear if I were going back to school. I know many of you will be attending school soon if you haven't started already. Give this look a try for a comfy and stylish look.
Este es un lindo atuendo que pense que serviria para el primer dia de clases. Se que muchas de usteds comenzaran la escuela o la uni pronto si ya no han comenzado. Traten esete look es comodo y con mucho estilo.

My husband and I were invited to a baby shower on Saturday, since it was in a backyard I decided to go with a comfortable casual look but wanted to look cute as well. I bought this romper from Target for $15 on clearance. The vest if you remember is from my Pay Half mini haul also a sale item, it was 30% off. My wedges are Nine West and yes they too were on sale 60% off at ninewest.com.
I love the colors blue and brown go together so I used my shoes and accessories to play up the brown. I have been dying to wear this crochet vest and thought that pairing it with the faux jean romper would be a good idea. At first I thought it might not work but I left it alone because the more you stare at an outfit the more you want to dissect it. I think the look turned out great and most importantly I felt great. I hope you like what I came up with.
El Sábado mi esposo y yo fuimos a un baby shower que nos habían invitado, como iba a ser una fiesta en un patio quise vestir me un poco cómoda y casual pero a la vez ver me bonita. Me compre este romper en la tienda Target por $15 en el área de ofertas. El chaleco si se a recuerdan es de la compra que hice en Pay Half y estaba marcado en 30% de menos. Las sandalias son de la marca Nine West y claro que también las compre en oferta, estaban en 60% de menos en ninewest.com
Me encanta como se ve el marrón y el azul junto, por ende use las sandalias y mis accesorios para jugar con los tonos marrones. Estaba loca por usar el chaleco de crochet y pensé que si me lo pusiera con el romper se vería bien. A lo primero estaba un poco insegura si se veía bien pero lo deje así porque mientras más mira tú atuendo más lo quieres cambiar. Creo que el resultado del look se vio súper bien y más importante que todo me sentí súper bien. Espero que les guste como me vestí.
