The Unexpected

posted by on 2011.09.19, under Chriselle Inc.

Spent most of the weekend catching up on shows from NY, wedding planning , and also a much needed Sex & The City Night in with the girls.

I’ve been utterly inspired by  mixing colors, prints, and textures… especially pairing pretty polka dots against a flashy sequins jacket. I’m all about pairing the unexpected! Speaking of Unexpected….It looks like I will be taking an unexpected (but much needed) trip to hawaii this Friday! Im super excited because it’s been years since I’ve had a vacation!

Tons of exciting little projects in the works and also lots of new tutorials coming out this week! Hope you guys had a lovely weekend and HAPPY MONDAY!

Lately, I didn’t give lots of consideration to leaving feedback on blog page posts and have placed comments even much less.

.jean jacket – LOFT thrifted necklace – striped dress – Old Navy watch – Arkanoplatz flea market Berlin purse – Athens tourist shop woven flats – UO..It will probably come as no particular surprise to regular readers of this blog that if I had my druthers Id be happy to just wear this outfit every single day. Although weve only been here a week Ive somehow already grown bored with everything in my suitcase didnt I used to have ? but fortunately this dress and jacket combo still manages to make me feel great on days when Im not up for thinking about what to wear… When New York decided to belatedly welcome us by approximating the interior climate of a steam room……

Love the polka dots, but I’m loving the Rachael Zoe piece even more. I’ve been deliberating purchasing this lovely gem (I stare at it all the time at work..Neiman’s)I think it needs to come home with me.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Edited in fcp with a strobe effect added in Apple Motion for kicks! ..Inspired of course by music videos like Cake s Short Skirt Long Jacket but with a different feel to fit the music…A big thank you to the locals and tourists of Sydney Australia for being involved.

I LOVE THIS. I really hope you consider doing the mixed prints tutorial I requested! It’s some of my most favorite things to do, and you do it like a champ, like the effortless and chic pro that you are!

I can’t wait to see how a professional does it.

This outfit is so gorgeous.
