There are a few things in a woman’s closet  that stand the test of time…and a LWB (little white blouse) is one of those things. I cannot tell you how many times I have put this LWB in rotation..but it’s seemingly perfect for any given occasion. In order for any woman to build a great wardrobe they must start off with the appropriate basics and then build off from there. I paired mine with some bold statement pieces…I’ve had a long love affair with costume jewelry/ bold statement pieces for as long as I know (probably watching my grandma adorn herself with jewels when I was young), and i’ve been quite smitten by anything animal print.

It’s only Tuesday but it’s been a beautiful whirlwind with so many new lovely projects- Working with Victorias Secret on Thursday, prepping to style for 4 new campaigns clients, and filming new tutorials with Michelle Phan for your viewing pleasure!

But in all the while I have been receiving the most utterly charming and impossibly thoughtful messages, comments, & tweets from all of you …and its been quite delightful! Although I may not respond to each comment/message/tweet…know that I read each  & every one of them and am utterly grateful for each and every one of you. It’s been a Heartfelt week….thank you!



p.s – LWB- equipment, Skirt- BCBG, Necklace/Earrings- Bebe



thought I’d create an alternative of your style at a fraction of the price =)

Love this look! =)

I actually saw this print skirt that looks like that at Forever 21 and was in a huge debate with myself if I should get it and you just made my decision for today! :)

Oh Chriselle you are such a lovely and thoughtful person:) You just made my day.My graduation is in two weeks and I was having a hard time deciding what to wear but this post(especially the pink little number) inspired me. And that tip about taking pictures before hand is such a great idea! It would be great if you could please do a post or video on how to pose for pictures like any tips or tricks. Because this is a photo to remeber I really want to look my best. (and Im awful at taking photo…)

The statement necklace balances the skirt very well. Love how you combined all the pieces. :)

Hi Chriselle,

I am in the process of building a wardrobe for myself…you say a LWB is a must. What other essentials would you recommend? By the way, I love your site and I look forward to each new post. Thanks for your fashion help.
