About the Author
Erika, our resident fashionista and founder/blogger, thinks every hallway, sidewalk and subway platform is her runway and struts accordingly. She works in corporate America by day (and enjoys it) and practices her “smize” by night. She believes in making people feel special, writing hand-written thank-you notes, instagram self portraits (<–) and veto rights to all (OK, some, she can’t control all) Facebook photos posted of her. She loves Jay-Z, the city of London and trashy reality TV (RHOA and the Kardashians are among her faves). And, of course, she is always on the look out for women whose chic is showing.
About Your Chic is Showing
As a late twenty-something (OK, nearly thirty-something) who loves all things beautiful and fashionable, I noticed a lack of blogs geared towards women like me; self-proclaimed fashionistas who love couture and high fashion, but whose reality is more corporate nine-to-five with the salary to match.
If you scour the internet, you’ll find there is no shortage of blogs showcasing the latest Guiseppe Zanotti sandals, showing us how to throw a party when no expense is spared, or teaching us how to look our fashionable best on a shoe string budget.
But there is nothing for a girl like me, who is a little more Coco Chanel and a little less Alexander McQueen or more corporate chic and less downtown hipster. Nothing for a girl whose budget allows for Mossimo for Target, Marni for H&M and Michael Kors (as in, just Michael Kors) to all coexist in her closet.
Until now. This blog is for her. It is a place where every day fashionistas can show off their chic. Where a girl can share easy ways to build a sophisticated wardrobe. A place to learn how a personalized touch or unique twist can add oomph to any gathering or event. A place where the style is a little more toned down but no less cool.
This blog is for you.
Because, after all, chic never goes out of style.
