I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

Hi, Neat post. There is a problem with your site in internet explorer, would check this… IE still is the market leader and a huge portion of people will miss your fantastic writing because of this problem.

Flicking through your photos (love this video and all the outfits in it!), I just belatedly realized the reason why most of these looks look really short is because you just have ridiculously long legs XD. I’ve been looking for a cute polka dot skirt for ages – hope they still have that F21 one in stock!

Great tutorial. Since you are an expert at pairing jewelry, I’d love to see a tutorial just on how to wear big chunky rings and bracelets. I keep seeing them in stores but I have no idea what goes with what and what finger to put it on etc….

Jacqueline ( September 29, 2011 at 1:41 PM )

The most difficult thing is to find a blog with unique and fresh content but your posts are not alike. Bravo.

AllHackTools ( September 29, 2011 at 10:04 AM )

This is the correct blog for anyone who wants to seek out out about this topic. You understand so much its nearly onerous to argue with you (not that I really would need…HaHa). You undoubtedly put a new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just nice!

I loved every.single.look. in this video, Chriselle! So glad you gave a bit more time for wearing mixed prints and bold colors. I always believe fashion rules are meant to be broken, as long as they are broken well!

Well fashion rules I heard of which tends to be pretty true is the ‘if you’re going for a top heavy style, then keep the bottom slim and non fussy’ and vice versa fitted top + skirt or flare pants.

oh and i guess this is by looking and deduction, it’s not great to wear everything in the same material? like structured is great for form fitting, but we should mix it up with softer materials like satin under a blazer for example.

also with colours, to keep bright colours under darker colours.

and how large prints can make your body look bigger.

Say chriselle, why don’t you teach us how to best wear loud prints? like leopard! it’s really daring, but I don’t really know how to wear it without looking outdated. I only choose small areas to loud prints to keep it less busy.

and also, how should we select accessories for different outfits! Recently, my friend wore a lot of accessories together, but made the mistake of a silver necklace + golden bracelets.

Also, I would love to learn about colour matching. I have an eye for colour matching, but this is my fav subj, so I’d love to hear your opinions! what colours go well with what! For example, in each season, what colours should generally represent each season? and how should one use these colours on them or their skin tone? for eg. brown with olive skin? yellow on asian skin?

OR you could also give us an insight on how you begin styling people! I’m sure there are plenty of factors that go through in your head before you pick out pieces to recommend to a client! It’ll be real fun to see how you work in real life, chriselle!

(sorry for idea spam – they hit me as i type, so it comes out like a tidal wave!)

Your content is always amazingly fresh and your style so chic!

Eleanor ( September 27, 2011 at 7:17 AM )

chriselle, not sure if this bothers you, but fyi i found a typo for ‘viewers’. Other than that, it was really an amazing useful vid! :)

faeleia ( September 27, 2011 at 7:16 AM )

Rule: “You cannot wear white after Labor Day.”

I love pairing white pants with a soft gray wool/cashmere sweater. This gives off an effortlessly “cool” look for the frigid cold in the east. :)

Hi Chriselle!
This was definitely one of my favourite videos you’ve ever done, it’s so clever and useful :)
Thanks so much and keep it up.

I love this tutorial…it’s very useful. Another rule that I don’t usually perform is to wear the bag and shoes the same color =)

Dear Chriselle,

HI FROM SINGAPORE! I love to watch your tutorials and has been following you and Michelle on FB. I seriously wanna thank you for teaching people how to mix and dress well. Am so inspired by both you and Michelle. Pls dun stop teaching… Looking forward for ur next tutorial already:D Would you teach us how to dress, by making use of the different figures that women have? I have a pear shape figure, love to dress like you in certain clothings but can’t, because i have bigger bottom and thighs. So how should i mix and match certain clothings and colours which makes my figure feels ‘outstanding’? Hopefully, our Guru Chriselle is able to guide me together with some of the ladies who are facing the same issue as I do:)

Mandy Kang ( September 27, 2011 at 4:51 AM )

i wish you could do a tutorial on how you achieve your bed head look.

Michelle ( September 27, 2011 at 4:41 AM )

This has been really helpful – I loved it. Can you do a fashion vid for the slightly larger ladies please? :) That would be so great. STAY CHIC :D

WINA ( September 27, 2011 at 3:18 AM )

I’m in love with your videos, and I’m a boy..

Matsuo ( September 27, 2011 at 2:55 AM )

Lena Muse ( September 27, 2011 at 2:47 AM )

Recently got to know about your website and your youtube! Your style is impeccable.. i love it :) Definitely gives me inspiration.. However my wardrobe seems to be lacking a few essential pieces!

And.. could you please do a post on how to dress up for rectangular body shapes? That would be great! :)

michele ( September 27, 2011 at 2:44 AM )
