Chico's started in 1983 as a small boutique selling Mexican folk art and cotton sweaters on Sanibel Island in Florida. 35 years later, Chico's has evolved to 700 Chico's boutiques nationwide, a monthly catalog, and round-the-clock shopping online. Chico's has always done such a great job of bringing creative fashion to the masses. Wearable for work or weekends and great pieces designed for travel, Chico's always adds a little touch to keep their line from looking too mainstream, too ordinary, too commonplace. I have been a fan of Chico's for many years.

If the sizing of my pieces look odd, it's because Chico's has their own sizing convention, but they have a handy size chart to help you match up to your regular size or measurements. Their clothing ranges from 0-20 and many pieces are available in petites (even this tee which has become my new favorite). I find their clothing to be generously sized; I got all these pieces in a 2 which is equal to a 12 and believe I could have sized down in the jacket (though this size would be perfect with a sweater) and chosen petite for the jeggings. And can I rave about these leggings for a moment? they are so incredibly comfortable; they're a nice dark color that looks polished, the finish is more like denim but feels like a pair of leggings. This is the second day I wore them to show they don't get stretched out with wear.
Chico's has some of the coolest jewelry and the Connie collection is a perfect example. A mix of hammered silver and lucite, the pieces add shine and sparkle without weight and work with any color and many styles of outfits. I love that the earrings are clip-on; while my ears are pierced clip-ons make dangly earrings far more comfortable!
