Saw this else where and I liked it so:
On being Chichi.
On being Chichi. The official dictionary definition of Chichi is "Ostentatiously stylish; deliberately chic." (american heritage dictionary). But I think of chichi in a different way. It's more about having the ostentatious courage to be who I truly am. To embrace my style, to allow myself to have a creative voice, and to be fully me. Perhaps some people have thought I was trying to be "deliberately chic", and thus squelched me for daring to have a voice. I'm embracing my own voice, and allowing myself to be as Chichi as I really am. It's not about showiness for me, but about showing who I am.
