The style tips and advice offered here on thechicfashionista.com is based on chic fashion. Chic is derived from the French word ‘chique’ which means skills and elegance, and over the past few decades it has been used to refer to a woman as smart and stylish. Chic is basically a word that describes a person who is fashionable, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that they have to wear the latest and hottest looks. It means you know what looks good on you, and know how to work with what you’ve got and flaunt it without looking like victim of fashion.
~what looks good with your colors, body figure and personal clothing personality never go out style.
~getting in touch with your womanly side and being playful.
~you know how to cherry-pick the best details and clothes from the current fashion trends and make it yours.
According to a mentor of mine, this is one of the mistakes most models in SL make – NOT making the fashion “theirs”.
And so gentle reader, I shall leave you to ruminate on this idea. Until next time ….
