Nostalgic From Seoul

posted by on 2011.12.21, under Outfit Of The Day

Photography by Christine Chang

{Kaelen pleated skirt, Manning Cartell jacket (as seen here), Wren sweater (as seen here) , Lanvin booties, Alaia belt, Oliver’s People’s sunglasses, Rebecca Minkoff purse- All pieces available at Satine Boutique}

These images were obviously taken (in sunny cali) before I came out to Seoul, FREEZING, Korea! It’s been 5 years since i’ve been back and I’m beyond ecstatic to be here! I guess it would be accurate to say that i’ve been quite nostalgic since i’ve arrived here this morning! I spent majority of my elementary & grade school days growing up here in Korea, so it’s really nice to be back to rekindle my love for this country!

ok ok, enough on being nostalgic…can we talk  for a minute on how FUHHHHHH-REEEZING  it is out here? Recently ive been receiving tons of requests on “How to look chic in the freezing cold without looking frumpy.” I guess those requests came right in time since i’ll be standing to that test this week! Didn’t realize how blessed we were out in LA with perfect weather 99% of the time…perfect as in being able to pair my fave booties with a short mini + a  lightweight sweater type of weather.

Will be uploading a new Christmas tutorial this week + major updates from my twitter + facebook from seoul, Korea!

Hope its lovely & warm(er) where you are!

Love,

Chriselle

Aw, I LOVE Korea and am super jealous that you’re there right now…although I can’t wait to see what you put together for winterwear there. I remember looking about as elegant as a snowman when I was there one winter. :) Have a great time!

KK @butshoppingmakes ( December 21, 2011 at 9:15 AM )

Awesome outfit like always, I really take insipiration from your website everytime I have to go buy some clothes. So, are you korean? Or you just happened to go to school there? And, do you speak korean?

Nohemi ( December 21, 2011 at 8:57 AM )

I absolutely love your skirt! It is so unique! I also really like the handbag with the jacket. Perfection!

Pippy ( December 21, 2011 at 8:38 AM )

You are so lucky, I’m half Korean and I haven’t been back since I was 4 years old (I’m 20 now). My husband just recently came back from being deployed there, but that was before we were married. I can’t wait to visit there and finally get a chance to explore the one place in this world that I absolutely need to go back to. Have fun!

Amy Kang ( December 21, 2011 at 8:28 AM )

Wow, thanks for the quick response Chriselle!
My bad, after I read your post I assumed you meant you took these pics right before you came out to Seoul airport :D
Eagerly looking forward to more great fashion tips from you!
Have fun there! :)

Nisha ( December 21, 2011 at 8:19 AM )

do you have any suggestions on what to wear for new years eve? aside from the typical sequins, something else flashy

vicheka im ( December 21, 2011 at 8:14 AM )

ahh have fun in Korea! and i love that skirt! :)

Daisy ( December 21, 2011 at 8:11 AM )

Is this what you wore IN the freezing Korea?!? Ought to feel cold coz of the skirt, isn’t it? Man, I’d like to look trendy like you and still be able to bear the cold.
I need more advice, suggestions, and ideas for dressing chic in winters! Coming from Thailand to Texas, I’m not used to cold temperatures at all!
When I’m outdoors, I’m usually wearing 2 tshirts, 2 jackets, 1 tight cotton leggings, a jeans on top of that, socks, and gloves. I look like an Eskimo.

Nisha ( December 21, 2011 at 8:07 AM )

    Hi Nisha! If you read what I wrote I talked about how I took these images before heading out to Korea. there is absolutely no way I could pull that off here in Korea right now! its freezing!!! will be posting more warm layered stuff this week! xoxo
