Fashion Boutique Owner Brings Dazzle to the Fashion Industry with ChicDazz Boutique

 

Dedicated Fashion Mogul & Entrepreneur, Jeneive Cargill, mission is to ensure women feel their optimal best with whatever they put on with quality pieces that exude beauty, fun, and sexiness. This show stopping lady born to Victor and Beatrice Pinnock is adamant about making dreams come true and putting in the work to do so. As an advocate for body positivity, Cargill ensures her boutique has quality pieces that accommodate every client and encourages them to look and feel different at the same time all while being confident about their body and style. Her passion for fashion and shopping steered her to this direction as the stores never quite had the pieces she desired. She turned such a loss into a gain by opening her own boutique.

And though this may be considered a win for Jeneive Cargill it isn’t her most memorable. Walking across the stage to receive her college degree after dropping out many times is actually the memory she holds on to. It was the pivotal moment that showed her with true dedication and perseverance, no matter how long it takes, one can accomplish their dreams. This along with her admiration of Taraji P Henson’s hardwork and dedication pushed her to be the best that she can be in all endeavors of her life; including her company ChicDazz Boutique. Using her expertise in hardwork, consistency, and dedication, her goal is to ensure her boutique is a one top shop for all clients where they can get the perfect outfit, wig and accessories.

But that’s not all! Jeneive Cargill isn’t just a fashion boutique owner but a woman who understands the importance of empowering other women. Her store isn’t just about the material but the feeling that it brings. Encouraging and enlightening women to be their best and do their best is where her heart lies. Going back to that moment where she had to prove to herself that she can accomplish a goal and overcome any obstacle she faces is the momentum she lives in. And from that place is where she pours from; encouraging her clients and all women who come her way to strive to be their best.

Patrice: What makes you a pretty woman that hustles?

Jeneive: Certain principles of life such as acceptance, balance, spiritually and purpose are just a few things that make me a pretty woman. Sticking to certain principles of life and wanting to provide a different environment and financial situation for my children and parents make me hustle each day. The hustle is real and you have to fight for it, especially when you’re a pretty girl. Being pretty sometimes make the hustle harder. So keeping the faith and being myself makes me a pretty women who hustle.

 Patrice: How did your journey in business began?

Jeneive: My journey began in my 30’s when I was pursuing my college degree. I was partying a lot, hosting parties and promoting parties. I would always get calls from friends and associates asking me for suggestions about an outfit, or can I find them an outfit. Wanting to look different and standout was the key for many of them. I would search days in and out until I found the perfect look that they were looking for. One day I decided that I would start a clothing business and sell unique pieces. I procrastinated for about two years until one day I was diagnosis with a chronic health condition, which got me thinking how I didn’t start my dreams. So I began my business right after being hospitalized.

Patrice: As a business owner, what challenges did you face along the way?

Jeneive: First challenge I faced was not able to find the right designers and vendors that represented my style and the image for my company. I soon learned that I could travel, research or pay for a vendor list. However, this was not always successful because many of the vendors did not have styles that I was looking for. Other challenges were buying pieces from vendors and upon arrival the materials were horrible and of course returning was a big challenge.

Patrice: Tell us a little bit more about your business and what does it intel.

Jeneive: ChicDazz Boutique is a one stop boutique that sells women and men clothing, hair extensions/wigs, and accessories. Our goal is to make each customer experience different and to match your personality with a style that will compliment your appearance.

Patrice: What types of pieces do you have in your boutique?

Jeneive: There are many custom pieces to choose from. We specializes in glamour evening dresses, cocktail dresses, two-piece sets, romper, and bodysuits, even to that perfect pink short wig, and not forgetting those diamond sparkling earrings that shine money all over. Each piece is unique.

Patrice: To you, what does the word Entrepreneur mean?

Jeneive: Entrepreneur to me means, being able to operate, own and design your company to fulfil your dream. Entrepreneur also for me is taking that risk that you would never take and hustling for it because it’s your goal to become that entrepreneur in fashion because you sleep, walk, dream and live for it.

Patrice: How do you balance your work life, personal life and business life all at the same time?

Jenieve: Sometimes it’s hard trying to manage my life. I operate two businesses today. However, being prioritize is very important and has allowed me to stay functional with work life, business life and personal life. There are times that I have to take myself away from both work life and business life, even thou it’s not often but sometimes I have to take off so I can have self-time. Allowing me to refresh my mind, soul and body. The great part of balancing work life and business life is that I have the options to include my personal life throughout my day.

Patrice: Do you find that to be a challenge for you?

Jenieve: The only time it’s a challenge is when I have to travel back to back. Often times it causes me to get so caught up in the events that I’m doing that I sometimes forget to double check in back at home on my personal life until I see my baby boy face timing me.

 Patrice: Where do you see your business in five years?

Jeneive: We are out to become one of the principal global designer, marketer, and distributor of authentic apparel for a broad variety of fashion needs. ChicDazz LLC in the next five years will offer a variety of products, including quality apparel and designs for diverse purposes.

Patrice: What advice would you give to someone who wants to become a business owner/entrepreneur?

Jenieve: My best advice would be to first research, research, research before getting started. It will save so much time while also educating you in what you’re trying to start. Especially as a boutique owner, it’s important to know your competitors and know what they sell. The second advice is stay consistent on your style, cause that’s what set you aside from others.

Patrice: Do you have a favorite fashion designer?

Jenieve: Yes my favorite fashion designer is Dior and Alexandria McQueen.

Patrice: What is next for you and ChicDazz Boutique?

Jeneive: Well ChicDazz Boutique has officially launched online store in December 2020 and is now schedule to open its first storefront in Atlanta, GA in mid-February 2021. ChicDazz Boutique is currently branding its name and working alongside LiveKanvas Studios on upcoming production proposals.

Rest, Release, and Proceed

Happy New Years Eve!

For the upcoming year of 2021, we’re getting ready for the unknown. 2020 has kicked a lot of butt for some, and for others, it taught valuable lessons. As we continue forth, it is important to rest and release. “Out with the old and in with the new.” “Let go and let God.” As cliché and worn out those sayings are, they hold much value and truth. 

2020 kicked butt for me, but in those tribulations I learned a lot:

2020 taught me to get comfortable with the unknown. As much as I believe I am a free spirit, go-with-the-flow kind of gal, I also realized when things don’t go my way or the way that I expect them to, I have a hard time accepting it. Like why is it not going my way, helloooo God, I made this perfect plan in my head.

Ultimately, God had to show me that things don’t always happen the way we want, but it’s the way HE wants and planned because His plan is bigger and better than anything I could have conjured up.

2020 has exposed me in ways unimaginable and made me vulnerable. I had to learn that it’s okay to ask, and accept help. I can’t do everything alone. Vulnerability is not a sign of weakness, but emotional strength. It takes a level of intelligence to process your emotions and release them in a positive way, instead of self destructive habits. 

2020 stripped me from my material wealth. The very things that gave me a sense of comfort or ease, were now gone with the wind. I felt as though I lost my sense of purpose or value. Everything that I once knew was dismantled, and I had to start all the way over. A 2020 reset.

As a result of the transgressions set before me, I needed to rest. To hone within, mind, body and soul, and ask for help. To pour into my own cup. Turn my words into action, and practice what I preached. I had to release my ways and give it up to God, truly let go, and execute blind faith.

In my period of rest, and surrendering to the will of God, I could not give up. I had to get back up. Rest, release, and proceed. Even though everything around me was crumbling, I had to know that my pain was for a purpose. God was cooking up something and I wouldn’t be able to savor the fruit with the old mindsets still holding me back. 

In 2020, God was trying to show that I am enough. We are enough. He is enough, and He is all we ever need.  Not the stuff we hang on to, or the people we think we need, but just our very existence and persistence to strive to be better, is enough.

2020 melted my core down into gooey warm candle wax, and God began to do the work in molding me. Shape my wax into a new stronger base. Getting rid of my icky smelly core, and giving me a new sweet aroma and 3 fresh new wicks. My flame can shine brighter than before and my new aroma will touch the lives and hearts of those around me. 

In 2021, I will have taken the lessons learned in 2020 and I will continue to be strong and believe in my own power.

With this mindset, you too can release the old and welcome in the new. Find your power and step into 2021 knowing that you can conquer whatever comes your way. Don’t give up or give in to the pressure, you are a diamond in the rough. You are facing hard pressures, so when it is your season to shine, your haters will have to put their blockers on!

Rest, release, and proceed. Go into 2021 strong and courageous! For God is with you, and he will never forsake you.
