I feel like i’ve worn these jeans one too many times (here & here) , but it’s one of those pairs that look better worn and torn with age. There are certain things that look better tattered & teared than perfectly polished. The imperfections are what makes things perfect, right? 

I shot these photos with Christine in silverlake the other day when I was sick, and we ended up finding the quaintest little cafe where they had the most delicious  comfort food. It may sound crazy , but i’m positive that what I ate at this cafe healed my sickness! Will be revealing what that magic potion is this Thursday as I post another Chic Eats! Stay tuned!

Anyways I hope you all had a lovely weekend! As I mentioned in my last post HERE that there was something that I couldn’t stop thinking about, and that I would reveal it on  my Instagram on Sunday! Well just in case you missed it here it is:


His name is Captain, and he’s just the sweetest thing! We’ve been thinking of getting mignon a companion for quite sometime now. Initially we were nervous that they wouldn’t get along in the beginning, but the 2 bonded immediately and are already inseparable! (awww)


It’s our first time raising 2 puppies/dogs at once, do you guys have any advice on potty training the young one while the older one is already trained? Any tips and advice would be greatly appreciated!

    TORN Jeans
    The only good thing about the bad economy


  • Eda says:

    the outfit is amazing, and your pooches are adorable! I’ve raised puppies/dogs all at the same time, older ones being trained as well. I would say there should be no problem with training your puppy, in fact it might be a lot easier. Puppies do well with imitating, just like all babies and children do, so as long your dog is perfectly house broken, then your puppy should be so as well!

  • Marija says:

    It’s all about those jeans, gorgeous! And the puppies are adorable!!! XO


  • Erica M says:

    You look so edgy in this outfit! I love it !!


    • Chriselle says:

      Thank you Erica!! Isn’t it amazing how a pair of torn jeans can make the simplest of outfits look so edgy? Thanks for coming by today! xoxo Chriselle

  • sonu says:

    you are always so perfect
    luv it

  • Adore those ripped jeans, love the big rip on the knee cap 😉 And omg!! Captain is sooooo cute!! Mignon seems to love the new member just as much! xo

    New Post up…

    • Chriselle says:

      They started off with small rips that resulted into big holes in the knee cap due to my foot getting stuck in the holes while getting dressed! ha! Isn’t Captain the cutest?? I’m so happy that Mignon has a friend now!!! Thanks for coming by today! xoxo Chriselle

  • I love ripped jeans. They seriously edge up any plain t-shirt.

    Omg I’m so glad you got mignon a companion. It’s always good for them to have friend around at all times. It helps with the loneliness. Potty training shouldn’t be difficult at all since Mignon is already trained. He might be able to teach captain a bit. :p


    • Chriselle says:

      Thanks Maggie! It’s true.. a pair of ripped jeans can edge up the simplest of outfits! I’m soooo happy that Mignon has a companion now too. He was spending too many hours at home alone, and we felt really bad :( No dog deserves to be alone!! So far potty training hasn’t been that bad since Mignon has been showing Captain the ropes. you are absolutely right xoxoxo Chriselle

  • Ellie says:

    Eeeeeekkk! They are so cute together!!!!! And those jeans look good on you! Even if they do end up ripping more no one will know 😉

    • Chriselle says:

      Aren’t they just the cutest? My heart melts every time I see them!! The jeans keep ripping more every time I wear them..soon enough they will turn into shorts! ha! Thanks for coming by today! xoxo Chriselle
