Happy New Year! Welcome to 2020 my chic family. I’m so glad to be in a new year and new decade, how about you? I know it has been a literal year since we’ve been together. A LOT has happened in that year – most importantly, we welcomed a beautiful baby boy into our family this past September!
I know that 2020 feels like a big year for a lot of us! A new year, new decade, fresh start. A clean slate, so to speak. I, for one, am super excited for all that 2020 will bring – both personally and professionally. And, lucky for my chic family, the excitement starts today!
The Big News
No, we’re not having another baby (people keep asking me that!!!). But I am birthing something of a different sort. It is with extreme excitement that today I launch, The Chic Boutique.
The Chic Boutique is an online boutique, personally curated by me, offering various clothing, accessories, and beauty products that are essential for stylish men and women. I’m so excited to launch the boutique because it features products that I love and things that live in my closet – like the perfect white t-shirt, stylish sneakers, and game-changing handbags.
I’m also really excited because I’ve been learning more about sustainable fashion, fashion with a message, and fashion from local artisans around the world. I can use the “Message Collection” to feature this type of fashion. Right now, the Message Collection features one of my favorite pieces on the site, the SLATE + SALT Embroidered Rainbow Clutch, produced in an ethical manner by the Hmong women of Thailand. I’m really excited to continue to do more research and bring more sustainable and ethical fashion to the site.
SLATE + SALT
Another part of the site I’m incredibly excited about is “The Chic List.” The Chic List is a quarterly collection of must-have items available at The Chic Boutique. These items are handpicked by our The Chic Boutique team and represent our favorite items in the store and our own personal closets.
I’m REALLY excited about The Chic List because I’ll be bringing in Guest Editors from time to time to help curate the list. This quarter’s list features items like a Deep Sea Caviar Black Gold Eye Mask (for just $5!!) and really cute animal print cross trainers (which are selling out fast!). Be sure to check out The Chic List when you visit the website.
As you can see, I’m incredibly excited about this new venture. The store really has many of my own personal essentials – like stylish baby burp bibs (I know you didn’t think my son had any old type of burp cloth) to cheeky t-shirts. And, I’m pleased to feature items for my plus size and curvy girls too! You know I wouldn’t have a shop where I couldn’t shop!! New products will be added to the store on a regular basis. I’m also very excited because we have a few collaborations in the works!!
What Else is in Store for 2020?
OMG! So much! In addition to regular YCS blog content on Mondays and Thursdays, you can look forward to more video content from us on social media including 60-second and 3-minute tutorials, product reviews, and behind-the-scenes footage.
We are also launching new lookbooks, e-books and workbooks to help you elevate your style – the first of which comes out in January 2020!
Your Chic is Showing will also be launching new co-horts for “6 Weeks to a Fashionista,” “Discovering Your Signature Style,” “How to Dress Your Body Type,” and “Dress Like a Girl Boss” through our Fashion Education program.
As you can see, Your Chic is Showing has a LOT cooking for 2020. I can’t wait to share with you all, work with you all, and make 2020 our most stylish year yet!
