Flirtatious Fuchsia- Coming Home



Photography by Karen Chen

As i’m sitting here on my pretty little Parisian balcony, i’m quite saddened that today is my last full day here.  As I talked about in yesterday’s post I was feeling a bit homesick, but now that the day is finally here i’m feeling mixed emotions about leaving this beautiful city. Words cannot describe the inspiration I found in Paris, and it was just what I needed to bring back home . Sometimes we get caught up in our daily routine, and can only grasp the tangible things in front of us. As I talked about in my 2013 recap post HERE, there is nothing more humbling than traveling. The more I travel the more I realize how much I don’t know. I will save more of my Paris experiences in my Paris posts soon to come, but I couldn’t think of anything more appropriate than this outfit post to end my travels here. I shot these images with karen the week before heading out to Paris, and as we were scouting  locations we somehow ended up here. In the midst of downtown LA’s urban streets, there was one fully blossomed tree  against a matte black wall…it was entirely unexpected and completely captivating. One thing I learned from this trip to Paris is that inspiration starts from within, and is our own responsibility to find that one blossomed tree.

  • Maggie says:

    You always pick such great locations for your outfits. The fuscia sweater and heels matched perfectly with the beautiful petals.

    As an artist, inspiration really does come from anywhere. I think it’s really important to stop and really take the time to soak in all that is around us. It’s so easy to forget about how easily we’re inspired by nature when we always run around frantically from job to job. Anyway, that’s for the inspiring post!


  • Sabina B says:

    Cannot decide whether I like the fuchsia color of your shirt or these photos more! Both are gorgeous!

    Love the colors, remind me of spring =) (I’m from the midwest so unfortunately snow is still here). But I agree, inspiration comes from within. Thanks for sharing Chriselle!
