{GBF What I Wore to the Ballet} Sole Society "Chic is..."Campaign

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

When Sole Society asked me to be part of their "Chic is..." campaign, I was surprised, elated, and immediately dipped into a state of deep contemplation. I shy away from self-labeling as I believe in the fluidity of the human mind, spirit, and body. There's always room to evolve, reinvent, and turn a new leaf so why let labels impede our metamorphic potential? 

But I quickly discovered the "Chic Is" campaign is more than just labels. The campaign celebrates qualities of chicness that pierce through our inner selves and float above surface aesthetics. Looking chic is about feeling confident, being effortless, and staying unconventional. 

Sole Society asked me to put together an outfit that embodies "chic is...unconventional." So I wore a turtleneck and flats to the opening night of the Royal New Zealand Ballet Company production of "Giselle."  On a night when chiffon, baubles, sequins and dressed to the nines at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion was the standard, I opted for a dressed down look that was simple, comfortable, and casual for the occasion. For me, chic is about dressing for myself and feeling comfortable with what I'm wearing even if it's unconventional or goes against the grain. Because looking chic starts with feeling fabulous.

What's your chic?
