{All pieces available at Satine Boutique}

This is one of those outfits that I would not mind recycling & re-wearing over again ( Cuss if I do…call this a fair warning!). My heart melts for simple pieces that have an unexpected surprise in the back, and this lavendar Joy Cioci blouse just makes my heart flutter {and not to mention the unexpected wrist slits}. I recently treated myself to these burnt rose Lanvin booties as an early christmas present to myself. I can officially say that these booties are the most comfy 5 inchers that I own, and not to mention that they match practically everything (Dont judge me if I run around the city in these babies everyday this season!)

No matter where you are, who you’re with, and what you’re doing today…. every day is an excuse to Play Dress Up!

Traipsing Up & Around

posted by on 2011.08.15, under Outfit Of The Day

This weekend was spent traipsing up & around downtown, dinner reservations, & shopping extravaganzas.  But most of all spending quality time with my ever so loving mommy and sis Eye It Try It.

With Summer coming to an end i’ve been spending most of my days in bright vibrant colors. Never thought of pairing this amazing Agave Purple stone bracelet Ive had sitting ever so quietly in the back of my jewelry closet with this pretty fuschia pink skirt.

…and its Monday! back to work and back to reality! It’s a jam packed week with endless meetings and a whole lot of shoots!

HAPPY MONDAY Darlins’!

JUXTAPOSE

posted by on 2011.08.09, under Outfit Of The Day

It feels as if, at any moment, Summer could slip right through our fingers…. So I’ve been traipsing around town  on a summer’s day in my salmon pink pants. Its that perfect pink that can easily be mistaken for a cotton candy/barbie pink…so I decided to harden it up a bit with this sleevless Rachel Roy army vest. If there was one word that can best describe my style it would be JUXTAPOSE. The best outfits usually come from mixing different elements of classic & trendy, colorful and ordinary, edgy and sweet…. breaking up the expected and pairing it with the unexpected.

That Golden Hour

posted by on 2011.07.21, under Outfit Of The Day


Love that feeling…. you know that salty, sexy, sun-dried, wind-styled feel…. that comes from being in the ocean. Although the hair is tousled and perfectly wind swept  nothing can compare to the feeling of toes in the ice cold saltwater after a long summers day. This time of the day is my favorite time of the day….when the breeze comes to life, the sun starts setting..and its that picture perfect hour of golden light. It’s that Golden Hour!

A Night Off

posted by on 2011.07.16, under Outfit Of The Day

After an impossibly busy week Michelle and I took some time off last night to catch a breath and unwind to some ahhh-mazing food, wine, and tons of laughter at my fave restaurant in downtown Church & State.

MICHELLE’S OUTFIT- I adored her look last night! chic chic chic was written all over her!  She was wearing highwaisted leather shorts with a perfectly loose silk blouse…very sophisticated & chic! Her leopard print stilettos and oversized blue envelope clutch (love the metal detailing) was just the right amount of accents!

MY OUTFIT- When wearing colors from head to toe I  try to keep it all in the same color family. For example: peach top, fuschia skirt, burgandy shoes (all in the pink/red family).

Blouse- Rachel Roy, Top- vintage, skirt- zara, shoe- alexander wang, Purse- Hermes, earrings- vintage dior, sunglasses- House of harlow

An overflowing feeling of excitement on all the new projects we are working on..someone needs to pinch me…am i dreaming or is this real?

Hope its beautiful where you are!

Love,

All The Shoes In Vegas Must Come Out Of Vegas!

posted by on 2011.07.12, under Chriselle Inc.

(please dont mind the horrible quality in the images below..didn’t have my camera the whole wknd so these are all from my phone!)

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas……..

but I say All the Shoes In Vegas Must Come Out Of Vegas! So I just got back from an exhaustingly fun bachelorette weekend for one of my dear & close girlfriend (founder of Serendipity Magazine). Yes we celebrated our hearts away but we also pampered our feets away! Why is it when we come to Vegas we always leave with way more shoes than we end up bringing?

(outfit above: Dress- Herve Leger dress, Christian Louboutin heels)

My new Alexander Wang Patent wedges I scored at the Barney’s sale! I’ve been eyeing these babies for quite some time and cant believe I got them for this cheap! woohoo!

Oversized shades & floppy hats are a must from all that crazy Vegas heat!

(Romper- Urban Outfitters, Shades- House of Harlow, Hat- G-star, Watch- Michael Kors Rose gold, Earrings- Beso Beso “The Chriselle”) 

and my obsession with tribal prints and statement jewelry continues… This was one of my looks for the first night out!

(skirt- No. A, Top, BCBG, Necklace- Antrhopologie, Bracelets- Beso Beso, Belt- H&M)

Not a huge fan of sandals until I met these Guiseppe Zanotti fish scales. 

Shopping in Vegas is the best! Taking advantage of the  lower tax rates! ( purse- Valentino, Romper- Urban Outfitters, Hat- Gstar)

the damage and aftermath in our hotel room.

It’s been quite some time since I’ve had time off to enjoy the presence of my girlfriends and really enjoy the luxuries in life. We danced to the undying beats, partied til the break of dawn, shopped til we (literally) dropped, and of course laughed like there was no tomorrow. and what I realized is that…

Laughter and Girlfriends is an Instant vacation!

Love,

Chriselle
