About The Chi Chi Boutique
A little about me... I am a native Texan, born and raised on Galveston Island. Growing up I always had an undeniable desire for fashion, style, and creating. I wanted so badly to experience what was outside of my tiny island, so following high school, I moved to Dallas, Texas to fulfill my goals and big dreams in the fashion world. In August 2009 I graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts from the University of North Texas, gaining a degree in Fashion Design and a minor in Fashion Merchandising. After obtaining a job working for a merchandising company, I became sucked into a miserable cycle of late nights and early mornings with no overtime pay in a dead end job. With every passing day I felt a little bit of my soul being blasted away, not to mention how much of a sellout I felt like, busting my butt everyday for someone else’s dream. What was I doing there?! I knew I had way more to offer myself than sitting at a desk with nothing to look forward to in the day aside from my lunch break and going home. There wasn’t a single day that went by when I didn’t make up an excuse in my mind to just not come back (insert I.Just.Can’t). I even started giving myself creativity points- the crazier the better. And thus, the dream of having my own shop and being my own boss was born.
