Topshop Cycle Chic Competition
Back in the 90s I was lucky enough, and worked hard enough, to be able to spend two terms in a university in the UK. While I was there I discovered Boots and Topshop. These were my little secrets once back in America, my source of cool and unusual things. Now they've both arrived Stateside and while I'm a little sad about losing my secret source, I'm thrilled to have these resources available.
When I saw that Topshop USA was sponsoring a cycle chic contest I raced to the Chictopia site, which, I must admit, reminded me that I'm not in college anymore.
To enter the competition just register with Chictopia and upload a photo of your best cycling look. Each week five winners will be announced – four chosen by Chictopia.com users and one chosen by TOPSHOP. All winners will receive the special TopShop-designed bike, pictured above. The competition is going on right now and the deadline to submit photos is July 17 so there is still time! Personally, I prefer my bike and would rather a gift certificate to Topshop, but I am gratified to see that cycle chic is catching on all over, with the younger ladies too!
