My Teen Vogue Story

It was September 6, 2011 and I was in my "Great Ideas in Science" class in college. My day was a bit chaotic as I had overslept and gotten to my first class a bit late to add to the drama I had forgotten to put my phone on vibrate and it suddenly rang in the middle of class.

"Wow!" "Just what I needed!", was the first thought that ran across my mind.

Most of the class starred at me as I fumbled through my backpack looking for the noisy device. I managed to get it and shut it off but still a thought lingered in my mind.

"Who is calling me in the middle of class?", I said to myself.

I continued to pay attention to that day's lesson and as soon as I left class my curiosity was killing me and I had to find out who was calling me. Lucky enough this unknown caller had left me a voicemail so I simply called my voicemail and received a great surprise.

The first words I heard were...

"Hey Sheyla this is Jasmin from Teen Vogue...this is regarding the Pacsun Dress Irresponsibly Contest."

I immediately freaked out!

"Teen Vogue? Is this a joke?", I muttered.

But it was all reality. I quickly called back my mysterious caller only to find out I was Teen Vogue's & Pacsun's Dress Irresponsibly Contest winner.

I could not believe that such a fantasy had just become a dream come true. The lovely Jasmin congratulated me and told me I had won a Pacsun $500 gift card thanks to my stylish outfit and that I was to be featured on Teen Vogue as well.

I followed Jasmin's instructions and submitted the necessary paperwork and soon my gift card came. Just yesterday I submitted the looks for her and Teen Vogue to choose from to feature and now all that's left to wait for is the next Teen Vogue issue to be published.

I wanted to take the time to share this surprising event to thank Teen Vogue and Pacsun for the opportunity and also to thank all of you guys for giving me inspiration and the will to keep on sharing my style with the world. If it wasn't for all of the comments and feedback that I receive occasionally from you guys, my chictopia fans and my fans I would not have made it this far.

Once again thank you and I can't wait to share the Teen Vogue issue with all of you. For now look forward to new outfits and get a sneak peak by watching my recent haul videos.


Oh and in case you were wondering here's the look that made it all happen...
