Haiii chic-ers (I made that name up, like it?)! I’m ecstatic about sharing another post with you all & this deals with finding personal style. Yup, I’ve been there & I’m pretty sure you all have as well. I mean, I’m finally cultivating my style & coming into my own, but it took me what feels like eons to get to where I am NOW.
I had a love/hate relationship with my personal style: from looking at ghetto fab chicks at my high school to trying to hang on to my preppy/boho style. Then college hit (styles I def don’t wanna relive) & I was experimenting all OVER the place: from having highlighted hair, tanned skin, & clothes to show off my tanned skin. My turning point was when I interned at Nordstrom & worked at Banana Republic: from there I began to hone in MORE on a minimalist, classic, but edgy kinda style. The more I felt comfortable…I dated a guy who didn’t approve of my style (too bougie **Rolls eyes**) and I started to revert back to my style back in high school/college…again not only did my style became lost…so did I. And it got WORSE when I moved to Michigan.
Everyone in Michigan was one of two things: Basketball wife/LAHH star in training…or awkward/boho black girl…it STILL WAS NOT ME (working at F21 didn’t really help either). As I grew over the years…I came into my own & so did my style, which is (and will always be) Minimalist, edgy, chic, but classic. I wanted to showcase this on my blog as my COMING OUT moment: I’m proud to be an individualist, honey! **Snap, snap**
Eastern market is the perfect backdrop for this story: it’s quaint, beatnik, yet still has an unstated cool about it.
Until, next time Chic-ers!
