I never thought I would ever see the day when I would be inspired by my husbands outfit.  I’m one to always pester about what he should or shouldn’t wear, but the other day he walked out of the house with a pair of plaid trousers & a nice knitted sweater. He had a big grin on his face as I commended him and gave him a kiss before we parted ways for work.  Fast forward a few days later,  as  I was sitting in front of my closet having one of those ” I don’t have anything to wear” moments,  I unconsciously paired these tartan trousers with an oversized sweater. I like to say that I  unknowingly styled this look together, but of course i’m a big believer in giving credit where it belongs. Inspiration is everywhere…..even in your own husband’s closet. There I said it!

Speaking of fall fashion, tomorrow  (Oct. 17) i’ll be hosting an event at the  Beverly Center at 6 pm alongside with Peace Love Shea and Late Afternoon. Come celebrate fall fashion with me as we chitchat about tartan prints over desserts and music!  Fall is undeniably my favorite season of the year, and i’m ecstatic to bring in the new season with all my lovely readers. See you tomorrow! More info HERE 


P.S this might be a bit dangerous to announce, as i’ve been having the itch to go fall shopping myself, but here goes….

Hi Chriselle! You look amazing… I love plaid trousers but I’m not sure about buying them because my legs are quite, ehem… heavy? So I’m afraid they are not for me. What do you think?

Those shoes are so amazing!!! Am I supposed to leave my questions here for the Dear Chriselle videos?
Well Dear Chriselle, I want to know if you can speak korean fluently?
