Rooftop Dreamin’



Photography by Karen Chen

I’ve been patiently waiting for the weather to slightly drop so I could finally wear my new (faux) leopard coat , but just as expected, the days are only getting warmer here in LA.  Not that I should be complaining, as I’ll be heading to freezing New York very soon!

As much as I love my statement pieces, such as this leopard coat, I cannot emphasize the importance of having the right basics. With the right basics the possibilities of mixing & matching are endless. Lets talk about the few essentials that every girl should have in their closet- A knit sweater, black skinnies, a striped shirt, and a pair of pumps… no excuses! Instead of opting for your basic black jeans, look for subtle variations such as this lace detail on these MYNE skinny trousers.

Anyways I shot these the other day with the talented Karen Chen on our rooftop.  It’s been a long while since i’ve done a rooftop shoot, but it always brings me back to when I first moved into our office about a year ago, we were shooting up here almost everyday!

NOW: Sitting on top of downtown LA in confidence


THEN: EXACTLY 1 YEAR AGO  standing on the same rooftop  with big hopes &  dreams:


You could move mountains with faith, dreams, and hard work! 1 year flies by fast, where do YOU want to be a year from now??

Time to get to work!!

    Chriselle, you have achieved SO MUCH in the past year. I’m so proud of all of your success! You are such an inspiration to me!

  • I love those lace pants! You’re right, you can add drama to a basic black jeans with interesting texture such as lace. :) Love the outfit, as always. Super chic!


  • natalie says:

  • Erica M says:

    The printed jeans are so chic! And agreed, the faux coat does look a little out of place in a place that looks so warm..can’t wait to see how it looks in New York :)


  • Naaj Rona says:

    Your pants reminded me if my printed trousers. I have a selection of plain dark jeans but I’m opening up and trying to incorporate coloured and pattered Leicester into my wardrobe.

    You definitely have come a long way Chriselle and I only wish you the best for future. I know that this is just the beginning for you. All the best. Loads of love and prayers
