Chriselle, loved the video! Could you do another similar video for those on a budget a/or aren’t into the changing trends? Maybe a little extra talk on how accessories can keep you updated without breaking the bank would be a plus, thanks!

love your videos! this is such a educative post!

As always, I enjoyed the post. However, all the staple pieces are meant to be worn in warm weather. I think the post focuses mostly on transitioning a garment from day to night, not different weather. I guess us Seattle girls are just jealous of your sunny-year-round California! ;)

Christine ( June 12, 2012 at 2:13 AM )

I love your videos and tutorials! That last dress is beyond amazing!My favourite look!

The slow pace ( June 12, 2012 at 1:05 AM )

All looks are lovely but I like the looks in the second photo best :D

Mira ( June 12, 2012 at 12:30 AM )

Love the last look! Just beautiful!

Amy ( June 11, 2012 at 11:41 PM )

Love each look, the pieces are definitely great staples.
