Chicago native launches trendy clothing store online

Soon to be 27-year-old Chicagoan Shiquita Banks is giving online clothing stores a run for their money.

Shiquita owns and operates Shop Bazaar, an online boutique created with the trendy, feminine fashionista in mind. This budget-friendly store offerers tops, dresses, accessories and more at a $25 - $40 price point.

Shiquita grew up a tomboy with a mother whose sense of style always intrigued her. As the years progressed, she came into her own, and developed a flair for fashion - all thanks to her mom's passion for fashion. "My mother was very over the top in personality and fashion...people noticed her," Shiquita said.

With her mother's style influence in mind she developed a drive to work in fashion and build her own successful business.

Today, Shiquita manages Shop Bazaar. Her goal is to one day have proceeds from the shop donated to Breast Cancer Awareness organization in honor of her mother. She thinks she'd be proud.

"Opening an online store was something I wanted to do for a while before I actually did it. In fact, I put it on hold when my mom's health began to get worse and after she passed I felt it was something I needed to get back to. I want to be able to be a successful business woman for myself and then part of me wants to give my mother something else to be proud of."

Shiquita proves that even the most challenging of times can truly push you to pursue your dreams.
