Nostalgic From Seoul

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

1 Piece 7 Different Ways

Here’s a little tutorial I did based around one of my fave winter peices! I find that cowl neck tops are alot more versatile and easy to wear than your basic turtle necks! And oh….. although I highly doubt any of you would wear one piece every single day for 7 days in a row…if you do I highly advice that you do your laundry ;) ENJOY!

Manic Monday Look

Basic But Not So Basic

Recently i’ve been drawn to busier pieces with striking prints & colors, but I can’t deny that when I laid my hands on this black and white blazer  my heart fluttered. The perfect leather lining + quilted arm patch on the blazer, and not to mention this impossibly perfect dress with billowy chiffon sleeves paired with delicate pleats! Black and white might be basic but there’s nothing so basic about this outfit, don’t you agree? The details on these two pieces are simply impeccable! Cannot believe that in just 3 days I will be heading out to the motherland- Seoul, Korea! I’ve heard from a few people that its beyond freezing out there, and im quite sure I wont be able to pull off these california leg baring outfits without freezing my tush off! So this weekend i’ll be shopping for some winter wonderland musthaves! Will be in search for a thick yet still chic parka/anorak + thick cable knitted sweaters + thermals + rain/snow boots! HAPPY FRIDAY loves! I hope you have an impossibly lovely weekend!!

Love,

Chriselle

Touch, Feel, Smell

{Styled Nora in Tom Ford + Chopard jewelry for all 3 looks}

Although I have to admit I spend much more time {recently} online than I do indulging in the glossies, but it’s always exciting to see, touch, feel, smell your work in more of a tangible form! Just recieved the the new GENLUX winter issue in which I was able to style french actess {also the face of Guerlain Fragrance} Nora Anezeder for the Cover editorial! I enjoyed working with Nora and  loves what she stands for…she wants to represent real women and not be categorized as just another pretty & skinny girl. We talked about letting go and enjoying life, indulging in the food you want to when you want to without killing yourself! So we went on about our day working, styling, and eating delicious pastries & pizza on set {guilt free!}….Life is too short!

{all pieces available at Satine Boutique}

And yes  I am the model & face for my own blog & youtube, but when it comes to the styling world im always behind the scenes!  So when Stephen of GENLUX asked me to be the stylist AND  the model for one of the holiday editorials for the magazine I was beyond ecstatic & flattered! As you guys know I’m all about reusing & recycling pieces, so here I styled my favorite leather jacket in 7 different ways for 7 different occasions for the week! Out of all the looks I would say Wednesday date night (the large one in the center) is my fave look! Which one is your fave?

Love,

Chriselle
