Hi there! I’m Jackie, the owner/founder of On the Chic!
I’m a marketing and event professional by day and the owner/head creative/designer for OTC by night. And somewhere in the middle of those I am a wife, a friend, a mom to the cutest four legged fur-baby, and a photography newb!
I’d describe my personal style as “Preppy Boho Chic” since I love mixing and matching structured with texture and bold prints. I unabashedly love a good statement necklace and think no outfit is complete without a watch or bracelet on your wrist. My husband secretly wishes he could throw out my entire closet since I have way too many clothes but always complain that I have “nothing to wear.”
I was born just inside Jackson, Mississippi into what you would expect of a southern family. We moved several times while growing up, however none of them have ever been above the Mason-Dixon line. Finally we settled in Georgia, where I’ve lived for the past 20 years. I’ve been an Atlanta resident full time since college and love so much about this city!
Here at OTC, we believe in making everyday things not so everyday. Also, we believe in pizza and puppies.
On the Chic hit the ground running January 2016 and we haven’t looked back since. We are a lifestyle and home décor company that specializes in hand painted signs. Yes, you read right – everything in our shop is 100% hand made by me! The idea of OTC was born in late 2014 when I was looking for rustic accents for my wedding. Not finding exactly what I was looking for, I decided to hit my studio and make it myself. After several compliments from close friends and family, OTC was born.
Here at OTC, we believe in making everyday things not so everyday. Also, we believe in pizza and puppies. We love seeing how small simple changes can make huge impacts to your daily life. A chalkboard menu adds a sense of rustic style and functionality to your home. A large wooden sign with a hand painted lyric, quote, or bible verse becomes the focal point in your gathering space. Small accented calligraphy becomes the finishing details for your event or wedding.
Things we love at OTC:
- Animals (not just puppies)
- 2nd & 3rd cups of coffee (and wine)
- Cheap wine & good bourbon (hey, two buck chuck is wonderful and nothing beats a nicely aged bourbon)
- Dancing like nobody is hopefully watching
foilanything and everything
- Rustic decor
- Margaritas with chips and salsa
- A good statement necklace
- A perfectly timed joke
- Anything that makes you feel like a #BOSS and makes you a better you
Are you OTC? Yes, yes you are.
Keep an eye out for new arrivals in our shop!
