Uniform

posted by on 2011.10.19, under Outfit Of The Day

All black & flats is the name of the game when i’m on set styling shoots or working with a client. 1. its professional 2. it allows the subject/talent to pop & be the focus! I generally like to add pops of print and color such as this Elizabeth & James silk blouse I layered underneath my blazer, and of course my leopard print loafers! I also carry this little crossbody purse to keep all my styling necessities such as safety pins, needle&thread, clips, etc

This is my working uniform…what is yours?

Prints Charming

posted by on 2011.06.13, under Outfit Of The Day

Strong coffee & frothy lattes, a messy side swept updo, & red liptint  has been the remedy to early early mornings.

This past weekend took some time to get re inspired by my very own closet. Have you ever been completely & utterly bored by your own closet? I’ve had this silk blouse and floral skirt for years and have sadly retired them to the back burner for quite sometime now, but it just takes a new pairing/combination to be re -inspired by those old pieces. Both pieces are interesting (in color & print) on their own, but together, they make a strong statement. I’ve been utterly inspired by the seemingly “wild” aspect of mixing prints. The trick to pulling off “print on print” is to counterbalance the scale of different prints. In other words have one large print and one small print, and keep both in the same color family so the look makes more sense. We can call this organized chaos!

I challenge you this week to think outside of the box and pair up  2 pieces you would have never thought to pair together! (trust me..its quite liberating!) And please leave a comment here, TWEET ME, or FACEBOOK ME with a picture of your new combo! Would love to see what you ladies come up with!

HAPPY MONDAY & HAPPY Prints Charming!

I’m here to tell you its time to kiss your lovely leggings so-long & goodbye (le sigh). and WHY HELLLLLLLO jeans and may I add with tons of stretch? Michelle Phan and I recently collaborated with Hautelook to show you gals how versatile jeans can be. A pair of good fit jeans can do wonders to your wardrobe, your ‘tude (attitude), legs, and buttocks!

The Tales Of The Traveling Hat

posted by on 2011.04.19, under Lovely Obsessions

Totally reminiscent of the Bianca Jagger days of the 1970s. 40 years later its one of 2011′s hottest spring must haves once again. Like history..fashion will ALWAYS repeat itself. Besides it’s a perfect accessory to protect your skin!

Here I’m wearing an Elizabeth & James blouse, Alexander Wang pants, Alexander wang purse , and floppy hat from Forever 21.

Here’s a quick update…we will be releasing the Spring fashion tutorial sometime this week..Michelle and I finished filming & writing the script for it yesterday! Also just finished editing my very first intro video to my Youtube channel. Hopefully *crossing my fingers* i will be able to get that uploaded by this week as well!

I caught a horrible cold  so please excuse the absence on Twitter & Facebook! Im trying to recover asap!

Love,

Chriselle
