Not to sound like a broken record, but have I mentioned that I love Downtown LA? As you may recall  I talked about why I love this city so much on this post HERE. Ive been finding  one too many excuses to run out of  my office down the street to grab some coffee, which usually leads to a shopping excursion at the new Acne store.

Ever since i’ve gone lighter with my hair color (these photos were taken before I went blonde), I find myself wearing a whole lot of black.  There’s nothing sleeker than  a body conscious  ribbed mock neck paired with the slimmest of black skinnys , and of course sky high black pointy pumps. Sometimes its the basics that create the strongest outfits.

Thank you to all of you that left me a comment yesterday on tips & recommendations for my Paris trip! I’ve jotted down majority of them in my journal, and can’t wait to share my parisian journey with you guys.

I hope you all have an amazing day!

    Awww I love this, Chriselle! Black is always my go-to color. I notice you have some broad shoulders and you can pull them off so well…I always felt as though I can’t wear anything because mine makes me look “manly”. Any tips on outfits for girls with these features?
