Chic: casual and understated style, as in dress or décor, that expresses a specified trendy lifestyle!
A question I frequently get asked all the time is “How would you describe your sense of style”? A couple of years ago I would not have been able to give an answer or even come close to one, as I always put my sense of style on the back burner. Not because I didn’t have one, simply because I just hadn’t discovered myself yet. I went through high school completely without an identity (fashion-wise at least). I don’t know if it was due to self esteem or simply because I was young. So, as I got older and a little wiser, I realized that I might just have a little something extra, an eye for colors, and patterns that others would call crazy. Though it took me a little longer in this life to decide that fashion is truly my passion, I’m growing more everyday and loving the person I’m becoming.
As I was browsing through a couple of clothing sites a couple of weeks ago, I ran across a fun T-shirt. The moment I saw it I knew it had to be mine. Only because the front said “Chic”, and the back read” Just got real”. I simply ordered it for the laughs and brushed it off. When I received the T-shirt it totally got me thinking, what does Chic really mean? Should I be buying shirts just for the cutesy words? I then quickly looked up the meaning of Chic and it was like a bolt of electricity ran through me. I realized at that moment that I had finally found my sense of style! You may be thinking that I’m probably thinking to much into a T-shirt, and you know what? I probably am . But I have decided what goes on me must make a statement of who I am. I finally got the answer I’ve been struggling to get all these years, this was my unconventional “a-ha moment”. And you know what? It just got really real!
