If you haven´t already visited her blog I can only recommend that you do so pronto because this lady has one of the best blogs I´ve come across so far in my 3 years of blogging!
She is Style impersonated, and on top of that incredibly intelligent, undescribably beautiful and unimaginably kind.
So do yourself a favor and hop right over to her blog after you’ve finished reading this post!
And if my words so far have failed to tempt you, and also because for me, when I think of chic – which is this challenge´s topic – I think of Dominique. 🙂 So let me add a few of her mesmerizing photos that can be gazed at on her blog, in addition to the quotes I chose for this challenge. (I hope you don´t mind me borrowing your pics, Dominique!!!)

Today’s Topic: CHIC
Admittedly you don´t get to see me very often in person on this blog as it concentrates more on the things I do than on the things I wear. 😉
But if you´d see me, you´d mostly find me in some very comfy clothes that are however somewhat leaning on the elegant side.
I´m not what you would call a fashion victim but tend to select only the things that fit into my style when going shopping for clothes.
This is mainly due to me wanting to wear a certain dress or shirt or whatever for a longer period than the admitted time of what is called fashionable at the moment.
This also means that I go for quality rather than for quantity.
But don’t get the wrong impression! I rarely buy clothes for their original price especially when they come from brands that are way above my income. Luckily there are shops that help girls like me and that sell these things for 50 or 70% less, like TK Maxx/TJ Maxx or the like. 😉
But what I also do from time to time – and lately more than before – is sewing my own clothes! Yes, that´s right, I´m investing time and money to buy fabrics and then go through the whole procedure of cutting, pinning and sewing to make my own clothes. And the funny thing is, that this makes even more fun than just buying the machine-produced goods.
Also – and this is something I value very highly – it guarantees that my clothes are something uniquely my own. 😉
So here are my quotes (I know, I know, it should have been just 2, but I found so many wonderful quotes that I only could cut it down to 5):
„Girls do not dress for boys. They dress for themselves, and, of course, each other. If girls dressed for boys, they’d just walk around naked at all times.“
„Fashion is like eating, you shouldn´t stick to the same menu.“
„I firmly believe that with the right footwear one can rule the world.“
„I like my money right where I can see it… hanging in my closet.“
„Fashions fade, style is eternal.“
Yves Saint Laurent
As to the nominees – I don´t like nominating only a couple of individuals but would like to invite everyone to take part in this challenge who would like to join the fun!
