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!

You should publish a magazine of your own. or something. These pictures are too pretty and artsy!

Lovin the top with those pants, been loving high neck tanks, really helps show off those shoulders ;)

You always look so chic Chriselle! love your style

Rachel O. ( February 20, 2014 at 1:49 PM )

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?

Mui ( February 20, 2014 at 12:40 PM )

LOVE LOVE this Chriselle! =)


mc ( February 20, 2014 at 12:22 PM )

    Chriselle ( February 20, 2014 at 1:37 PM )

Ahh! I’m in love with this outfit (usually am with your outfits)! I love the ribbed mock neck and the quilted leather detail on the pants. That over sized cardigan looks sooo Comfy!

oh I love this look! I wore something IDENTICAL the other day for dinner, but with leopard print pumps. I definitely like the addition of the white blazer. I have a white tuxedo blazer with black lapels, would that look okay? xx

Supal {chevrons and éclairs} ( February 20, 2014 at 10:15 AM )

    OoOOOoo The pumps sound amazing I may have to try that out sometime! I think that the blazer would look great!

    Chriselle ( February 20, 2014 at 2:15 PM )

You are quite right: sometimes there is nothing like basics! I love this look. Your body looks great! Have fun in Paris!
