Where the city gal meets not so chic!

What makes a girl chic?

Is it her characteristics? Interests? Hobbies? Social life? Or is it the environment you were brought up in?

Chic is defined as stylish and smart, a fashion element, per Wikipedia.

This topic dawned on me this week, as I have been out and about in the Bay Area. I constantly see fashion forward women, well groomed, who are chic, successful and confident.

I mean I did deportment in school, speaking lessons and modeling, yet to this day I still forget which water to drink at a dinner party, don’t take my makeup off before bed, can’t wear stocking to save myself without having a crutch problem, wear all types of brands of clothing and has a tendency to have words come out of mouth before thinking.

Today I was asked “are you from the country?” I said no I am not. They replied “ oh I’m sorry I thought you might be, as your nails aren’t polished”. That ended the conversation.

I left the restroom and thought how does that make me from the country. My hubby and in laws are all from the country. They are amazing people and have love for the land, crops, family and life. Definitely not defined by there nails that’s for sure.

That got me thinking am I chic?

Or am I a city gal out of my depth?

Or in actual fact am I just a laid back Aussie who love good cloths, great food and wine but isn’t defined by the material items.

Or in actual fact and I chic in my own way?

What I realized every woman is chic in there own way, in there own environment. Women need to help each other and support each other.

I will leave you with this quote-

“You cannot fake chic but you can be chic and fake fur” -Karl Lagerfeld
