ABOUT US

ChiCQuero 

Chic [French] meaning stylish or smart, as an element of art, fashion and design.
Quero [Portuguese] verb. like, want; will, desire; love; list

An inspirational place, created to vulgarize trends, expand beauty and share creative thoughts!

We are both from Brazil, that used to live together in California. Good times, besides roommates we went to grad school in San Diego. At the time, we got to face every single moment within the same “vibe”. Shared happiness, shopping, “keep it or toss it”, trips, good food, laughs, dreams

Fortunately, or  not , we got our grad diplomas.. completed our MBA in International Business, studied at School of Style (New York and Los Angeles), and moved back to Brazil. Starting everything from ground zero, literally, we can´t wait for new challenges, careers, friends, fashion, flavors and love.

Monsieur Denis, with one “n”.
A Marketer, left-handed, cool-hunter, free-spirited brazilian guy from São Paulo. At the moment, lives in a magical island called Florianópolis (go ahead, Google it).

Practical more often than intellectual, a not-so-quiet-simple-man, who will do something unexpected to shock you. He knows so many cool people, and is always looking for quality friends.

Mentally, he creates his own little world, and sometimes no one gets it. Most of the time, he is looking for the future and he thinks he lives  for the future.  How many people think like he does ( ? ? ? ).. but he does not want to be like the others. He is a man with a conflict.

Mademoiselle Lailah:
Fashion stylist, aquarian, ex-ballerina, left-handed as well, creative and tons of things that you will find out in a bit! Loves fashion and everything about it with all her heart, is a way too sensitive for arts (sometimes it´s kinda creepy, cause she sees art where apparently doesn´t exist). She adores music, photography, great food and traveling… OMG, she likes to travel! It´s part of  her personality being original, inventive, independent and intellectual, but speaking of  her dark side she´s intractable, contrary, unpredictable, detached and unemotional, but c´mon guys, not all the time!

Imagine things “over the top”… add some more sparkles,  lux and glam to it… yeah! That´s the way to go with her! As such a dreamer with wings, she thinks she came to this world with a mission of just enjoy and appreciate amazing and beautiful things in life as the fairy tail stories. But you know what… slowly she goes back to Earth and realizes she also needs to work really hard to make things happen… and it´s happening!!!

      Oh, about the shoes part, trust me, we are ALWAYS craving a new pair, intervention NOW.
      Best

    • Thank you veru much Ashley, from now on I´ll try to post some more english stuff.
      I believe you can understand the content just by looking at the pictures, lol If there´s anything specific you needed translated, let me know. My pleasure.
      Best..

  2. Enjoy your blog! Very lively, interesting! My granddaughter lives in Brazil, but I’ve never been there nor do I know Portuguese. I’ll have to remedy that!

    • Hello Leya, thanks for your feedback.
      Let us know if you ever come down here, Brazil is pretty amazing.
      We´ll balance some portuguese with english, so you can understand, something like “Portuglish”. lol

    Bonjour Monsieur et Mademoiselle. Thanks for visiting my blog and the “like.”

    Your amazing eye-candy has inspired me to start adding a weekly photo of past and recent projects. Check back in at photobizzy in the future…still building the blog when I’ve got time from shooting but hopefully I can bring some value to the photo community with more helpful phood for thought. Cheers!

    Yo quiero son blog! Mi Espanol est poco loco e rudamente. Gracias for your comment on Peter’s Crazy Aunt!

  5. spinoza1111

    Esta Portogueso! O my! I have been having some Portuguese moments lately, watching Capitanes de April about the 1974 revolution and meeting Portuguese people from Macau!

  6. I am glad you liked my post, that led me to your blog. Spanish helps me understand a bit, but the images speak for themselves! Looking forward to seeing more of your posts.

  7. I like this blog a lot. It’s very fresh, unique and enjoyable. Plus, it will help me brush up on the little bit of Spanish that I remember!

  8. Thanks so much for “Liking” the latest picture I found online…the bluish one with the trees and the moon! I loved finding your very stylish and friendly blog! I do not know portugese but in London I met one person from Florianopolis in 1981….very memorable! I will visit again….The Creative Lioness aka Judy…http://cardtales.wordpress.com

    • Wow.. how cool is that? I am from Florianópolis, have u ever been here? You should, it´s a beautiful place.
      Thanks for your visit Judy.. Best

  9. I had no idea that your language here is Portuguese…shows what I know! There are so many different dialects to every language, I thought it to be Spanish! (My apologies) Do you ever listen to Nellie Fertado? Growing up with good old rock n roll, there are very few comtemporary musicians I get real excited about, but she is one of them: writes all her own songs, and sings beautifully in English, Spanish and Portuguese…I don’t understand the latter, but the emotion is so rich one does not need to know the words. I have been enjoying your blog and find it to be quite unique, have seen nothing else like it…

  10. Very nice visual content !! And extremely creative !!! A pleasure to look at …(even though I don’t understand the language ….the eye is the sea of the beholder ….pun on sea be vast an expansive)

  11. Thank you for liking my post Go for Guu! You have a gorgeous blog. I love how inspiring your visuals are and helps keep the creative juices flowing. Kudos to you! :)

  12. Love your site. So many god fashion stories, thanks for your great interest in my piece on stret art around the world-. A few things from Rio and Sao Paulo. I still have a house in Arrial do Cabo (Cabo Frio) near Rio. Keep up your god work:)

  13. Really enjoy your site. Thanks for pushing the like button on mine.

    I would love to visit Brazil some day. The Brazilians really know how to party. Laterly, blogging and earthquake study and prediction have kept me busy.

  16. Thank you for the comments and likes! I know nothing about fashion, nor do I understand Portuguese, but your blog is visually stunning. It’s a pleasure to read.

    I have something for you, an item you might not have noticed. Os Gemeos did a graffiti project on a Scottish castle in 2007. Here’s the link to my blog post on the subject. The time lapse video is amazing.

    • Hello Mademoiselle Elizabeth (I love this name),
      We are always looking for something ‘different’, and sometimes.. the normal is different. :P
      It’s a pleasure to have you here. Tkz

  19. Hallo Denis and Lailah,

    thanks for visiting brandpowder. Your blog is interesting and I’m glad you also like Nirrimi Hakanson (whom I consider a genius).
    I like most of the stuff you posted and your point of view about vulgarizing trends (brilliant). I will check chicquero from now on and I will try to keep in touch with you.

    Best regards,

    Carlo
    (from Milan, Italy)

    • Hello Carlo, hows Milano treating you?
      Nirrimi is awesome, love her. The trends should be vulgarized and that’s our job to make that happen. lol
      Thanks for you visit, we’ll be waiting for you :)

    • Hey Paola,
      Life is all about being original and hilarious.. and so is our profile. lol

    A Big thank you … for finding me

    • Chicquero = Pig Sty, well that was before we went “global” lol
      We start our blog in portuguese, just for friends and etc.. the name made sense in the begging… we had to re-think our concept.
      Thanks for your visit

  22. So glad to have found your blog!

    Denis: I wrote an entire novel based on the idea that a father and son can’t get along because they were both born under the sign of Taurus.

    Lailah: I am also an ex-ballerina and left-handed! Sadly, I am not blonde or an aquarian. Scorpio all the way.

    • Hello Heellis, how have you been?

      Really? I want to read your novel, must be pretty interesting, taurus peeps are intense. I got admit that.
      Let me know if you ever need any crazy characters to write about, I bet me and Lailah would be something cool to put on a pice o paper. LOL

      Thank you so much for you visit.

    • Hey Jurgita, how are you doing today?

    I love your blog and I’m a happy follower.

    Up until a few weeks ago, I thought a Ping was half a game of table tennis, a backlink some kind of dance step, and feed something you give cattle to snack on. Since I’ve started blogging, I’ve begun learning an entirely new language.

    While I’m on the subject of blogging… I’m going to start posting a series of mini-interviews at Sofia’s Place. 5 Quick Questions With “Mr. X”. I’m going to ask my interviewees what they do for a living, who/what inspires them, and what advice they have for people in their line of work. The other two questions will be the interviewees’ choice.

    If you or someone you know would like to be a part of “5 Quick Questions With” you can e-mail me or leave a message for me at http://cretanchange.wordpress.com/

    Someone once told me, “The only easy day was yesterday.” But I hope you’ll have a great Thursday!

    Sofia

  31. Que legal o seu blog! Adorei conhecer, e vou continuar lendo os seus posts! If you have any ideas for my blog (about what makes Brazilian women so alluring) let me know!

    Bjs!

  32. Thanks for the ‘Like’ on my WP post, ‘Reflecting on Birth and Silence’.

    Anyway, very nice blog, great photos, and very cool ‘about us’ details!! I’m not a fashionista but you might get me to reconsider. Ciao.

  33. Thanks to whichever of your Fashionistas put a “Like” mark on my Blog titled EXERCISE AND HAMSTERS.

    I am very much an UN fashionista preferring to drink straight from the bottle and preferably a bottle that never drains dry – so I wouldnt really be an appropriate subscriber to your blog.

    Nevertheless Thank you very much for your kindness – oh, and by the way, about those wine glasses on your site – I do hope that you are able to blitz that useless contractor of yours who made them, for gods sake if my supplier sent me defective goods like that I would sue them for every bloody penny that they had.

    • So do I, drinking straight from the bottle is very practical. :)
      The glasses.. is all about taste, I don’t mind to have a few different designs options, and change the concept sometimes. I think it is quirky and fun.
      Anyways, thank you so much for your feedback, I’ll hope you’ll find some inspiration in here.
      Best

  60. Hi! Thanks for “liking” a post on my blog about China. Funnily enough, I just had a peek at your blog last night – coincidence? ;-) I guess it’s a mystical ‘girl living abroad’ vibe that brought this about. Good luck with your blog (nice read!) and visit mine again!

  74. Hi Chicquero!

    Hello from Singapore!
    I was very surprised to see your LIKE on my necklaces!
    My site is very new and you’re actually the first one who “reacted” on my site!

    YEY!
    Thank you very much!!!

    Love your photos by the way… :)

    Thank you,
    Moody Mary

    • Hello Moody Mary, (I love the name you have chosen)
      Singapore? Must be incredible, can’t wait to visit Asia.
      No worries about our comment, we are very happy to help some beginners, we know how hard it is to get some recognition at first.
      So we’r wishing you the best of luck!

  75. Thanks for popping in to my blog.
    Your blog is good-looking with a great sense of style and humor, but I think you’d be appalled at my fashion sense. I see Denis spent some time in Cambridge, so he may be familiar with the more typical dress of those of us living in the boonies of Western Massachusetts.
    Mustaches are strange.
    Have fun with your blog! Stop by twinklysparkles any time.

  76. Ines

    A-do-rei este blog :D
    Obrigada por passarem no meu cantinho! Eu hei-de voltar aqui mais vezes com certeza.

  77. Your blog is awesome and always inspirational – I always have my eyes and ears open for fashion…….maybe one day I will end up on your blog !

  78. Thank you so much for liking my blog post! It’s wonderful to have new blogging friends, and you are my first from Brazil! I am planning to write a few blogs about your amazing country – please do keep reading and I would welcome your comments/corrections/criticisms! Warm wishes from Kingston, Jamaica…

    Everyday I come to your blog and can’t help but like your posts. All the photography projects you share are spell binding, how do you find such gems? Keep being awesome! Janet

    • Wow sweet, thank you so much Janet.

      Lots of love

  80. Thanks for stopping by my blog and letting me now by your liking it.

    I love what I see here, it´s refreshing and inspiring.

    Thanks

  81. You sound like you were made to meet each other… so many similarities and coincidences. With so much jet fuel behind you I’m sure you both will take the creative scenes by storm, or the Pororoca… whichever works for you. Also, as per your shiny-shiny resume everyone should have a friend like you guys, but no more than two or it will be too much to handle! ;)
    Good luck!

  82. What an original blog! I am part Brazilian on my Mother’s side. I visited Brazil in 1993 and I LOVED it! I really like your blog name :) I’m definitely following you!!

    • Hello Soulist,
      I really appreciate your blog, great content going on.
      You bet, next time in europe, we’ll hit you up, ok? Let us know if you ever come to Brazil, let’s keep in touch
      Cheers

  83. What an amazing blog you have! Vibrant and alive, bursting with creativity.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, We are both going out on a limb with our ideas, and testing the limits.

    Bravo!

  84. Super dizzying site! Love to see that. And yes, minimalism IS for quitters.

    All the best. Keep up the fantastic work and thanks for stopping by True Outsider.

    • Hi Dani! You have a very nice blog, btw! Welcome to the blogging world, we’re still amateurs, cuz it hasn’t been so long for us as well, but we can tell you that it’s so much fun! Cheers from Brazil! Hope to see you soon!

  88. Thank you for reading and for the like on my blog. But, I must say, my jaw has hit the lap top and I am in lust. Adore your blog and sense of fashion. Adore the picture quality and stories that they tell. I’m just a little excited sorry!

  89. judithsmarkworld

    I <3 the "about us". Did you do each other profile description? Anyways, well written! I love the pics i've seen on the blog… I am following! I am sure I will get some ideas for my own makeup look! Great job!

  90. So happy to have found you. Looks like an interesting ride!

    and I agree with your quote Denis, so funny AND true:

    “I have an irrational fear of wasting a good outfit on an insignificant day”.

  91. I’m a fan of both of you very interesting young people! Where is the sign up sheet to be your friend? I got a tattoo from a Brazilian artist, while we were both in Sardegnia, Italia. That’s cool, huh? Great blog! May I ask why you don’t post any advertising? Let me guess…NOT cool! Peace :-)

    • Hey Kevin, how are you?
      You just signed your sheet, you seen like a cool guy ;) We love tatts, what did you get?
      I’m a Marketing guy, so i think advertising is pretty cool. LOL We’ll think about it.

      Thank you Kevin, you rock!

  92. Modern Funk

    Saudações,

    You guys rock…I love your blog! My husband’s favorite place in the world is Manaus. I hope to go one day soon…as I hear it’s unbelievable. I’ve been to Buenos Aires, Argentina and Colonia del Sacramento, Uruguay and love the Latin culture. Portuguese is a beautiful, sultry language.

    Thanks for the photos and unique perspective!

    Kisses,
    mf

    • That’s awesome to hear that! And where are you from? You should come to Brazil, it’s truly amazing and very unique! Thx a lot for your kindness and looking forward to hear from you soon!
      Tchau!
