Diva on A Dime: Ten Dollar Seventies Vibes

Whatup Peeps!!

A couple weeks ago, I went to my local Forever 21 to pick up a shirt that I had to replace due to it being stolen while I was in Costa Rica( so disrespectful). To my pleasant surprise, there was a sale going on, so you KNOW I had to take a look 🙂 Although I’m still being mindful to only buy clothes that I actually need, I was glad when I spotted this short, bell sleeved, flowy number. It’s been awhile since I’ve featured a dress on the  blog, so after wearing it to brunch this weekend, I made sure to snap a couple pictures for you all. I absolutely LOVE this dress: it’s equal parts sexy, cute and comfortable and I received so many compliments while wearing it. The ornate print made it simple to stye with lace up pewter heels, a denim jacket,clutch and tonal sunnies.

I love how fashion has a tendency to repeat itself, the 70’s vibe I get while rocking this dress is right up my alley. Have you all bought anything cool lately? Please share with me in the comments below.

SophiaTroy Travels: Pura Vida in Costa Rica

Whatup Peeps!


Last week, I returned from a brief trip to Costa Rica, so you know I had to share it with you all 🙂 About a month ago, I was invited to join a group trip with a mutual friend to link up with some of her friends in celebration of a birthday. Despite having just went to San Diego a little over a month prior, I jumped at the chance to accompany this group on this trip. We only stayed in Costa Rica for a total of four days, but so much was packed into that time: we flew in and out of San Jose, then traveled to Jaco, Manuel De Playa,  and Cuepos. During our time there, we ate a TON of fresh, sometimes organic food, drank tasty cocktails, spent some time at amazing beaches, went on a quad ride through the jungle ( at night….yikes), had an afternoon at the spa, encountered some local wildlife, hiked into a beautiful waterfall,  and overall enjoyed ourselves!!! We were gone just the right amount of time and I’m thankful to have gotten away. In Costa Rica, they have a saying ” Pura Vida” which means pure life, this is a way of life  embedded in the very fabric of the culture of this country as you’ll find everyone is chill and always ready for an adventure. Below are some pics from my trip for you to enjoy.

If you all ever have a chance to travel to Costa Rica, you should definitely do it 🙂 I’ve decided all I need this year is good food, good friends, and great travel opportunities.



Peace & Love,
