Saying Thank You Never Goes Out Of Style

August 30, 2010

I’ve always been a glamorous kind of gal.  I have married often and always rich. I love to shop and was been born with great taste.   They say I have: Elle a du flair.  Yes, I  am now over forty, (and a real cougar after plenty of older ex’s) and fabulous!  A year ago, I saw an opportunity to blog for women over forty who LOVE  Chico’s .

ChicoStylist doesn’t fail at much, but she failed miserably at this blog.   Not only did I never ever get one tweet, comment or anything from the 5 C’s at Chico’s .  I never even got a “hello” from anyone from Chico’s, including all their Social Media Interns.   Why, it kind of reminds me of  the Alicia Keys song No one .

Obviously, it’s no secrete what goes on in retail and branding.  Why who doesn’t read Womens Wear Daily?   So when ChicoStylist  flew to New York City for the  Blogher10… no sponsor could believe her story of “No Chico’s doesn’t even know I Blog.”  While at  Blogher, ChicoStylist attended conferences of a top Ad firm who recognize the ChicoStylist blog as a great niche  Fashion House Blog in front of the whole conference crowd.  Yes, a certain gentlemen noticed I had that j’ne sais quoi!  That was the golden Emmy moment for  ChicoStylist, who stood and smiled while she took credit where credit was due.  He saw it: “It is the only blog in fashion that focuses on women over forty.”

Thousands of dollars spent later, and cross country flights.  ChicoStylist loves Chico’s but like a lover who doesn’t love back.   The time has come.


So I bid Chico’s Chico FAS so long:

I’m on to a new Fashion House Blog.

Where saying “Thank you never goes out of Style.”

These women are the women of real style,  real beauty, and real celebrity staying power!   “As the American population continues to grow older, everyone can relate better to an older woman with a great body, attitude, and take on life.”   Chico’s Fall catalogue, features  Lauren Hutton captured in a breathtaking photo shoot at Lake Powell, Utah.  As Chico Stylist  has always known loves, Older Women are Beautiful!

Broadway Sensation, Movie Star, Vaudeville Performer, Playwright, Sex Goddess… Mae West was each of these things. But first and foremost she was an independent woman who became an icon simply by being herself. Chico Stylist relates, I’m a woman of very few words but lots of action.

Bad Girl by chicostylist on Polyvore.com

Chico Stylist had a Mad, party Sunday. It was cocktails, curvey women, men in suits, and just MadMen fabulous. Now Chico Stylist is packing for New York City and  Blogher10.  Chico Stylist can’t help but to be disappointed that Chico’s FAS, is missing the prize of sponsorship for this event.  With thousands of bloggers at Blogher,  being fashionable dressed in Chico’s new fall arrivals would have reached and attracted the Most Influential, Social and Info-Savvy Women Online.  (Reaching more than 20 million unique women each month).

After all, my tag will say Chico Stylist.   Being in the Blogher Network is a prize in itself, you are chosen on your editorial content,  MadMen of Fort Myers and New York.  Yes, it’s going to be one heck of a week!   Today my Wall Street Journal, has sent me to cocktails, when I saw today’s news.  Jeez, I even twittered my desires but no one is home.  So, I’m having a cocktail pajama party and my suit case is waiting to be packed.  Yes, I  think you will be surprise to learn what Chico Stylist will be wearing at Blogher10. And I’m taking my camera to  twitpics and celebrate Chico Stylist one year Blog Anniversary/Birthday!   Oh yes, I’m savvy,  a bon vivant,  I’m over 40, and worldly.   Hello, New York City!
