My name is Megan Ruffles. Yep, just like the potato chips or ruffles on a dress – whichever you prefer. I am the blogger behind all things The Chic(ish) Chick: [sheek-ish] + [chick: as in a baby chicken].
You know that feeling when you walk into a room and you’re wearing the perfect outfit, you’re having a great hair day, your make-up is on point and you feel like a total badass? I believe every woman has the right to feel that way, no matter the reflection in her mirror or the size of her bank account. Yet so many get lost when it comes to finding the time, knowing where to shop or how to dress their bodies. It is my mission to empower women by providing them with the tools they need to feel their best and style their lives. Styling your life is about more than just what you put on your body everyday. It’s also about how you style your home – and your life. Let’s face it, when you feel good about yourself, you are more confident – and having more confidence will affect every single aspect of your life in a positive way. Nobody has a good time showing up at the ball in sweatpants.
This is also a space where I hope to provide you with a little break in your day to have a few laughs with me, because we could all use a little more laughter in our lives. Laughing too much just isn’t a thing.
A little more about me….
My love of fashion really started with Barbie. I was a total Barbie girl as a child and loved to play with Barbies. I am an only child and used to torture my mother by begging her to play with me. She hated it, but we can laugh about it now. Each play date began the same way. I would put all of the clothes into a big pile and we would pick outfits one by one. I never got sick of it and still hold a special place in my heart for Barbie today.
My life mottos:
Just because we live in Iowa, doesn’t mean we don’t want to look good.
You can look like a million bucks in discount clothing but if you only ever buy $20 items, you’ll start to look like 20 bucks.
I love food and a good cocktail. I also love music and I love to dance. My go-to karaoke song is ‘Shoop’ by Salt N Pepa. And let me tell you something, I kill it every time.
I am fortunate enough to have a really amazing family and group of friends. I love them fiercely (you know who you are). I am also fortunate enough to have a husband that makes me laugh every single day.
My favorite quote and something I truly believe is: “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou
I vow to never take a car, gym or bathroom selfie. I also vow to never Facetune my wrinkles away or Photoshop my parts.
I hope you enjoy this space as much as I do. So, go ahead…dig right in and stay awhile, because I’m not going anywhere!
