Black & Bright












Photography by Karen Chen 

Possibly it was my explosion of excitement in Paris that I found myself indulging in different colors of the rainbow on the daily. But ever since i’ve been back in LA i’ve been on a semi color detox, and indulging in tons of monochrome black & whites outfits (as seen here)

During the spring/summer i’m always looking for easy one pieces that I can easily throw on such as this black cut out romper. As for me when i’m wearing an all black outfit I like to pair it with strong accents such as this Zadig & Voltaire fringe purse & black booties. Not to mention that fringe is back in full swing, and will be seen everywhere this season (especially with the upcoming music festivals).And of course the minute that I thought I was over mirrored sunnies, Westward leaning sends me a pair of black frames with a rose gold/red tint. Just the perfect amount of bright to an all black ensemble- Black  & Bright it is.

Romper: Cameo (similar one HERE and equally as obsessed with this one HERE )

Booties: Zadig & Voltaire x Laurence Decade (similar one HERE & HERE)

Purse: Zadig & Voltaire (similar one HERE)

Sunglasses: Westward Leaning

  • pallawi says:

    Omg! Those booties are to die for.

  • Absolutely love the cut of this romper. So interesting and fits you very well.

    • Chriselle says:

      Thank you Jewel! Rompers are one of my fave things to wear during the spring/summer…minus having to zip down naked when going to the bathroom part ! xoxo

  • Thien says:

    Wow! You look gorgeous!!! I really love the cut of your hair. I’m afraid to go that short…being Asian and all, I fear I’d look like a 12 year old

    • Chriselle says:

      hank you Thien! I think its all about how you style it! I personally think short hair can make someone look more “classic” and “mature” at times as well! It could work both ways..again, it’s all about how you style it! i say go for it 😉
