Feeling Saucy!

Hello EC’s

It’s been some time since we’ve heard of each other. So many things have occurred; our launch, pop-up shops, etc. Now that the summer is literally around the corner, I wanted to share a few tips and tricks on how we can style one bodysuit.

I feel like a lot of the times I find myself using my clothes only once and I feel like I need to get more use out of it. I’d like to get more for my dollar which is why I’d love to share some tips and tricks on how you can style our saucy bodysuit.

The saucy bodysuit is very bright and bold so be ready to make a statement! I first paired it with our Rebel Boss Cigarette Shorts. It’s the perfect casual summer outfit. My favorite thing about these shorts is that they are high waisted and have the cigarette belt that compliments my waist line and makes it appear more defined. A lot of the times, styling yourself is all about finding clothes that compliments your body.

For the second style, I chose to pair the Saucy bodysuit with the High Waisted Babe Jeans. Another cute, yet casual outfit that can easily be dressed up with your favorite pair of heels for a night out in the city.

 Last, I paired it with the Let’s Talk Business Trousers and a blazer. I find that we all want to have cute outfits for the office, but we also want something we can wear outside of the office because let’s be real, having a closet for the office and a closet for your life outside of work can get expensive.

Any of these outfits can also be worn with our Minty Fresh Bodysuit or your favorite bodysuit.

What Is Empowered Chic?

What Is Empowered Chic?

So many have asked this question? Empowered Chic is an online boutique founded with the sole purpose of empowering women. EC’s goal is to empower women to find their inner fashionista and for them to come out confident to the world. We want to empower women to find their own unique style with no fear of judgement because style has no rules and no boundaries. Style is self made. 

A few years ago, when I would go shopping, I would admire all the clothes I would see, but would never bring myself to try them on for the fear of not being able to “rock it” as it should be worn. I use to envision an outfit and how it could be put together, and accessorized, but I never took the time to try it on and see how it would fit. It wasn’t until one day that I decided to finally try on an outfit that I had envisioned. The worse that could happen was I would hate it and not buy it. To my surprise, I loved it, and it was exactly what I had envisioned it to be! After that, I realized that I shouldn’t be afraid to explore. If you feel empowered in a certain style or outfit you should own it! You can literally rock anything you want to wear, you just have to feel good in the outfit yourself. You must believe in your unique style because ultimately that is what is going to make you truly own the outfit. 

I believe that style is unique and self made. There are no rules to who can wear what or how it can be worn. Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak because lets be realistic, your personality is not the first thing someone sees when they meet you. So EC’s, we are here to bring you affordable, fashionable clothing, and show you that YOU CAN style yourself how YOU want. Don’t be afraid to find the outfit that empowers you! Head on over to our site and sign up to our news letter to stay tuned on launching details!

Remember, style can empower you, are you being empowered?

The Nightmare Of Online Shopping For Clothes!

Hello EC’s,

Welcome to my blog!

Who here has nightmares about online shopping for clothes? I know I did!

Many people often ask me how I am certain of what size to pick when online shopping for clothes. The most general question I get asked is “but how do you know it will fit?” Today I will explain to you beauties how I figured out the secret!

Over the course of time, I have become quite familiar with my body measurements. I know my bust, waist, and hip measurements by heart; which are probably the most important measurements when it comes to online shopping. Size range differs at every store but, the key to mastering your size when online shopping is definitely knowing these basics. The majority of the time when you are online shopping for clothes, you will be able to open up what is known as a size chart/guide. They are normally located right below the size option as shown below. This chart will help you determine what size is best fit for you.

Once you memorize these basic measurements you will then go onto the next step of mastering your size! After reviewing the size chart, i then go down to the bottom of the product page to the customer reviews section. Most of the time, you can locate reviews on how the item fit someone else. Customers are generally pretty generous about listing their weight, height, and size they ordered to describe how well the item fit. I will normally look for a few of those reviews and then just compare it to my weight, height, and size. This usually helps me finalize my decision on the size I will chose for myself! So for example, the customer review below indicates they ordered a size small, are 5’4, and weigh 118 pounds. I myself am 5’5 but weigh 135 so in this case, I would get a small because the review indicates the product is long and I’m only an inch taller so if I don’t want it longer I need to stick to the small; I also like my clothes with a tight fit, plus my bust size is on the smaller side so a medium may be too big on the upper part.

In case you want more reassurance that the product will fit or if the product you like does not have customer reviews on sizing, then your third option would be to go to the product description. Product description will usually also have the models size and weight. Not only that, but it will also have a little more information on the product itself, such as, if the material is stretchy, tight, with or without zipper. These things are important because they can also make a difference in what sizing you chose. If the material is stretchy you may be able to get a smaller size, if its tight you have to stick to your size or a size above, and if the product has a zipper then you need to really look at the size chart to confirm you get a size true to your hip/waist measurements.

Well EC’s, this concludes the topic of ‘The Nightmare Of Online Shopping For Clothes.’ I hope this has given you a little insight on how to shop online for clothes! I know many stores offer great deals online, but it can definitely be scary to shop online when you don’t want to go through the guessing game of ‘will it fit or not.’ I am no sizing professional, but these tips that I’ve learned over the course of my shopping history have definitely helped me nail my online shopping! Ive placed many orders for clothing online this past year and have yet to return any of the items. Because sizing can range and differ in every store, I have included some links to some of my favorite stores that have the best size guides, and over all a good amount of reviews on all items. Have a lovely day EC’s, until next time!
