Will You Still Be Mine

Oh the places this dress will take you, beautiful ivory long sleeve dress featuring the comeback trend of off the shoulders neckline accessorized with a choker. Our { Luxembourg } dress took us on a date to the San Antonio Museum of Art, because only a chic-eclectic and sophisticated look would belong perfectly in a museum. The Valentine's Day Capsule features these latest 3 blog posts by yours truly in collaboration with Jana Cantua, any of these pieces are available through our online shop { limited sizes available }. I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day, spread the love! XO

Roses are Red...

Making corny headlines for the posting of this outfit is well worth it. Second installment of our Valentine's capsule will leave you dreaming red --crochet red, that is. Our On My Mind Dress carries the aesthetics of the beloved and lux Self Portrait brand which is famous for its feminine and whimsical dresses. Paired with nothing else other than flower printed heels and our Pearl Studs. Fo the shooting of a dress that speaks for itself, we took a stroll around South Town's King Williams because it was exactly the feel it inspires --romantic. Hopefully it fills your Vday with this exact feeling.

Sweeping Fringe

Not just any other outfit post. We are now OPEN FOR BUSINESS and ready to take orders! I'm so excited to extend this space to you fashionable ladies were you'll find thoughtfully hand picked pieces for your closet. This look is one of my favorites, because it incorporates one of the most sought after fall trend: the fringe, and we are suckers for fringe on anything -- it's our avocado to our toast. Our Shimmy Shake Faux black suede mini with under the knee length fringe and side invisible zipper for closure. Worn with our Zombie Wintour Distressed Tee for the added edge, black pumps and Maria Bonita Clutch for the clash mix.

*A personal note from owner.

Welcome peeps!

My name is Michelle Cook, an all things fashion lovah. Most of the blog posts found here will be written by yours truly. It was about time to get back into the blogging world and continue to share this old passion and sticking it to new projects. A couple of years ago I started a fashion and style blog called 'Nice Things and Stuff' as a form of creative outlet --expressing myself through art and fashion is my happy place, it drove me to make jewelry, paint, photograph, style, and write a fashion column for a local magazine, but a lot of my love went into women's fashion retail.

This blog space adopting now the name of 'Nice Things' will be an extension of Chic'tique®, focused on the daily wear about's, behind the scenes, ootd's, special features, you name it! Why Chic'tique? A lot a girls grow up fantasizing and joking about their future kids' names, I (of course did that too) grew up thinking about the name of my dream business. With clippings from a 2006 Elle Magazine and word playing with chic + boutique, the name was born! I'm beyond excited for this new journey, hopefully growing it into a space that will cater to all your fashion necessities -because at the end of the day, aren't they necessities? What's even better, if you like what you see, you'll be able to find it directly on site and shop away. 

Exhibit A: a flowy pleated tunic with a peep hole back is a fall dream dress, just in time for the summer transition. Earth hues and warm tones are huge this fall and expected to pop up in every corner. We can begin with this little number. ;) Decorated with layers from an elastic choker to a long tasseled necklace, one I haven't taken off at all. I wont be able to finish describing my love for wide brim felt hats, so I'll just stop here.  

For the moment the site is not completely finished but feel free to email us with any of your outfit inquiries to: shopchictique@gmail.com. We'd be happy to help, thank you for stopping by! XO
