She's Chic but She's Not Shady

This is my super rough sketch of a lyric from the Lenny Kravitz song Lady.

I'm having lots of trouble with the "i" in chic. I want to repeat that classic italic serif shape from the "y" somewhere else, and the i seemed like the best place to do it but i think it looks odd between the h and the c. Any thoughts?

I also need to work on my spacing between the h & a and d & y.
