ABOUT ME

Hi and thanks so much for stopping by! I’m Chichi (actually my full name is Chibuogu CHII- BOO- AWW- GOO) and I started Supplechic in 2012 as an extension of my then Youtube Channel. I was about to start my first real job after graduating from undergrad and I wanted to show the world that you could have style no matter your size and budget! Back then there were very limited plus options that were both affordable and current! So I spent a lot of time thrifting because as a mom of a toddler and a student I didn’t have a budget for much more!

Over the years the blog evolved from thrift finds to covering fashion events and conferences in the plus-size space from Full Figured Fashion Week to the Curvy Con to New York Fashion Week and more! 

I have always loved fashion, as a child, I ditched my Barbie’s for my own D.I.Y. dolls in order to give them more clothing options and as a teenager, I was obsessed with the catwalks. I would stay up all night watching re-runs of fashion shows at sixteen my ambition was to become a fashion designer that created clothes for women with curves.

That passion for fashion led me to creating Supplechic. A space where I could share about my love for fashion and lifestyle; while helping curvy women build confidence, feel comfortable in their own skin while developing a cohesive, curated, CHIC personal style.

"I pride myself in my ability to help women feel confident in knowing how to be stylish at all sizes and price points."

I just made the move to full-time blogger something I have been dreaming of for years! I’m known for giving fashion tips, sharing my everyday life ( what I eat, products I use, how I work, how I take care of myself ), covering fashion events and sharing my favorite fashion finds + bargains on my Insta-stories. I want everyone out there to know you can have a passion while raising a family, having a 9-5 and going to school I did it!

"Supplechic is a space to come for conversation, inspiration, how-tos and all this Tre chic!"

I also love to do video fashion hauls, travel vlogs, share style tips and tutorials on my YouTube channel SupplechicTV. In order to give back to my community and help my fellow entrepreneurs, influencers and fashion bloggers, I created the Business Blogging and Branding series where I share insights from my 7+ years of blogging. These include tips on how to build community, increase engagement, collaborate with brands as well as advice on how to use Instagram and Instastories to help anyone Instagram like a pro!

I’m passionate about creating + sharing and am humbled by all the opportunities I’ve been afforded thanks to this space (I was on the Cover of Redbook) and the support of my amazing community.
