Let’s get consciously chic!

stay in the know


How did the Chic start?

Hi, I’m Nancy Rahman, the editor at the Chic. I moved to Chicago as an immigrant from Dubai in 2011. I am Egyptian by culture and nationality. I started blogging due to scarce work opportunities and from there started the chic’s journey.

In 2013, I blogged about the post-financial crisis America where youth was disrupting, innovating and evolving. Artistry, entrepreneurship and self employment flourished.

Meanwhile, the social internet life soared and people around me started traveling and experiencing the world more, bringing back inspiration and creativity.

A Fresh Redirection

In 2015, I had children and my passion for the environment grew stronger and stronger. This is where I decided to use this platform and my voice to help our followers learn more about a sustainable life and empower them with simple yet beautiful tactics on how to integrate small changes in their daily lives – from self love to outward, environmental love. It is with absolute pleasure that I share these ideas, findings, people and products to enrich your life inside out.

I remain loyal to the main voice of this blog & website which is to share stories on American living- people, ideas and beyond.. all with a dash of responsibility and kindness.

  1. Hi! Your blog seems really great, I’m not really into fashion but I’d love to explore some of your posts, who knows I might really like something πŸ˜›

    Aaran πŸ™‚

  2. Love following your blog and hearing all about Chicago styles. I lived in River North for a few years, and I definitely agree the fashions in the area are hard to beat πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you! Will do my best to update you with the latest on street. Next week were launching Chicago homes, showing off what’s inside Chicago- how stylish we can be πŸ˜‰ thanks again xo

  3. I love a bit of chic! and miss it as I no longer work in a studio… but now in a workshop….
    I think I might be needing some inspiration! (boiler suits don’t do me no good!) lol!

  4. Thanks for visiting my blog and, in so doing, introducing me to yours. Love your thought that dressing can shape a culture in so many ways! I look forward to seeing more.

    1. Thank you for liking thechicagochic! I try my best to show the world the real Chicago that’s not seen much on global media- the people that make this city more than great. Yep worked on the creative for this logo πŸ™‚

  5. Having lived in Chicago I agree with you. However, I am a New Jersey/New Yorker (I can see my New York friends cringe) at heart. I am so glad you found my blog, it gave me the opportunity to find you.

      1. I lived in Chicago for 18 months a while ago. I liked it but, that cold winter…. hahaha. New York is home to me although Chicago was a really nice place to live for a little while πŸ™‚
