Small4Style Interviews Amy Schroeder of Simply Chic Jewelry

Amy Schroeder, owner of Simply Chic
Who doesn’t want to look Simply Chic?  Well, lucky for us, there is a Dallas-based online jeweler that offers Simply Chic pieces at reasonable prices.  Amy Schroeder is the brain behind this gem; Simply Chic is for anyone who wants to accessorize without spending a lot, which is something we can all appreciate! After graduating from Mississippi State, specializing in Fashion Merchandising, Amy worked in New York honing her skills for the fashion industry. I got a chance to talk to Amy about how she started Simply Chic.

Fashion runs in Amy’s family, her cousin and two aunts work in the industry as well. Amy always wanted to start her own business, so it was easy to combine that with her passion for jewelry. She says “People can change an entire outfit just by accessorizing and Simply Chic is a great way to achieve that without spending a lot of money!” Every week, Amy features “statement pieces as well as some everyday pieces.” She makes sure “that each item is not limited to one outfit or occasion.” After receiving my own Simply Chic jewelry (Yeah!), I saw that the quality is incredible, and her pieces are so unique.

Amy Schroeder cleverly utilizes Facebook to sell Simply Chic’s fixed-price jewelry during auctions every Monday night at 8PM.  She posts pictures of available items on her wall, and customers comment on their favorite pieces including “SOLD” and their email address to purchase the item. So when people comment and “like” the page, their friends will find out about Simply Chic as well.  PayPal makes it easy to pay; plus, there is free shipping on every order!

As I always like to find out, Amy’s style is “classic and trendy”.  Her style icons are Katie Holmes and Kate Middleton. Her advice for those of us that want to work in the fashion industry is “never be afraid to take chances. The ‘fashion world’ can be scary, you have to be willing to take risks to achieve your goals and succeed!” 

So remember to check out Simply Chic’s next auction Monday December 19 at 8:00 PM central time.  Purchases from Monday’s auction will arrive in time for Christmas, so pick up your last minute gifts from Simply Chic!  Like Simply Chic on Facebook, and follow Simply Chic on Twitter @Simply__Chic.
