Chic is…

I just finished watching this video and it really made me think. In it, Jared Goss, curator of modern art for the Met, speaks about different works of art throughout history and whether or not they are chic.

Chic is definitely something I am guilty of aspiring to, although by Goss’ definition (and perhaps this is true), being chic must be effortless and unsought-after. Goss says it just has to be.

The chic-est person I’ve met lately is for sure Ms. Beverly Bremer of Atlanta. I met her while on a visit to her eponymous silver shop in Buckhead and if you haven’t been, it’s a must!

Do you consider yourself chic? If yes, what makes you so? If not, do you know anyone truly chic? Goss speaks about a certain ‘veneer of perfection’ that accompanies chic-ness, and that goes along somewhat with the experience we try to create here in the south. Probably the reason I’ll never be chic is that it requires understated elegance and I’ve always fancied myself to be a little over the top.

Just a few of my thoughts on this loverly afternoon. Now share some of yours! Happy Thursday friends!
