Rachel Nguyen is brains and beauty: She has a fashion blog That’s Chic and a degree in economics. She’s been hustling from job to job for years—most recently as a denim designer—so now she’s enjoying time to work on creating her own clothing line, and also being able to hang out by the pool whenever the hell she feels like it. You can go ahead and hate her for her mid-Wednesday pics of margaritas. She’s ok with that.
How long have you had your blog?
I’ve had my blog since high school, so about six years ago. I thought I would be a fashion magazine editor when I was in high school so at first the blog was about kind of prepping for that. But then all of the sudden it turned into this narcissistic thing with pictures of myself.
What kind of things would you wear to school?
I had awful taste. I thought I was really cool wearing black high heels with my jeans and an Abercrombie shirt. I had awful style.
What do you do when you aren’t working on your blog?
For a little bit I was designing denim at Paige Denim. Now, it’s really nice exploring the city while everyone is at work. I like being the asshole that posts pictures of margaritas by the pool on a weekday.
