Laid-back looks for the lovely weather we’re having—not too hot, not too cold. Despite what hassles the gloomy drizzles may bring, we prefer being kissed by the cool breeze than by the warm sun.
This is what happens when you try to shoot with a hyped-up pup. @CesarMillan won’t be proud. Half-dachshund half-shih tzu Phil (named after the Azkal) has the innate curiosity and indomitable energy of both breeds.

EARN YOUR STRIPES:
There’s this one question we often get in the mail. “How do we do it?” whether it’s modeling, fashion, writing, producing, or our relationship.
To be very honest with everyone, we don’t feel like we’ve made it, whatever aspect it may be. We’ve got a long way to go.
With regards to Love Chic, we’re hardly as recognized and acknowledged as today’s top fashion bloggers, and for good reason: they dedicate so much time, effort and passion into their blogs that it’s practically their whole life. As for the two of us, it’s more for the fun of dressing up, going out, sharing stories and documenting fun moments through pictures. But, you know, if one day we would reach a certain level of success for all that, then it would be a huge and surprising blessing.
In terms of appearing in magazines or on TV, we’re certainly not celebrities of any sort. It’s just that modeling, writing, styling, producing… these are things we can do and always knew we wanted to do for a living. How did we get here? By studying the industry, submitting resumes and portfolios, attending go-sees and interviews, and getting rejected many, many times. We kept going, and we kept trying to prove to those who showed us the door that other, better doors would open for us.
And as far as our love story is concerned, it wasn’t an easy ride. It still isn’t. We’ve been around each other for years, but before we could truly get to know each other, we had to meet people from whom to experience and learn (bitter, painful) lessons about love. Even today, there are challenges we have to face; the only difference is we face them together.
So. In a nutshell, how do you do it? There is no shortcut. You gotta earn your stripes.
