Bridal Shower part 2- Girlfriends + Gifts

posted by on 2012.07.20, under Wedding

I was highly convinced that emotions wouldn’t hit me until I walked down the aisle. BUT as soon as I walked into a room filled with my family, sister, & of course my girlfriends that I love most …I immediately started tearing up. It’s moments like these that remind me of how blessed I am. My girlfriends showered me with lots & lots of gifts, but most importantly  words of encouragement for the next chapter in my life…..

A Nylon Night

posted by on 2012.03.09, under In The Life Of, Outfit Of The Day

 

First- Let me apologize in advance in the not so perfect picture quality.The other night the bestie, Michelle Phan, & I attended the Nylon x Coach dinner to celebrate the Lily Collins cover. Coach gifted us with possibly the cutest crossbody bag ever  (will be posting up pix soon). Wanted to share with you guys the outfits that Michelle & I Wore! Michelle wore this beautiful grecian ASOS gown but we toughened it up by adding a leather jacket & a pair of black booties (seriously can never go wrong with pairing flowy romantic pieces with a structured leather piece.) I’m wearing possibly the cutest chiffon/lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana but paired it with this bad ass boxy tiger print jacket. Similar to  a leather jacket you can never go wrong with animal print accents whether it be a jacket like i’m wearing or this beautiful Mcqueen clutch of Michelles!

HAPPY FRIDAY!! Hope you have an impossibly amazing weekend!

Lay & Mix it up!

posted by on 2012.01.08, under Fashion Tutorials

I’ve always loved the idea of layering but living in southern California  i’m always limited to so many layers I can wear! (2 days ago it was in the 80′s in LA….seriously hottest winter ever!!!) I created this tutorial for all of you who love that layered look but cant {physically} afford to unless ur willing to risk a heatstroke! haha. Also I just got back from my travels in asia where it was freeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzing and I {finally} got the chance to play with all those layers (and btw lived in my UNIQLO heat tech leggings there). So no matter what side of the world you are at or what climate temperature you may be experiencing I hope you can find a little LAY & MIX inspo here!

A Little Mich&Chris Bromance

posted by on 2011.12.23, under In The Life Of

It was exactly 1 year ago from today when Michelle Phan and I partnered up and started our ever so exciting journey together on youtube! We’ve escalated our relationship from merely being business partners to what we can now call best friends! She always challenges me and pushes me to my limits (which I appreciate!). We know when to  to turn it “on” for business and turn it “off” when we just need to vent & get loose! We’ve had one amazing & crazy year together and it’s exciting to know that this is just the beginning of our journey!

“Friendship isn’t about whom you have known the longest… It’s about who came, and never left your side…”

ok ok i’ll stop with the bromance…but HAPPY 1 year ANNIVERSARY to  us! Thank you guys for all your support!!!

btw by the time you guys are reading this i’ll probably be on a plane from Korea to Taiwan! Korea I will miss you but im excited to see what Taiwan is all about!!!

Love,

Chriselle

Ladylike Silhouette

posted by on 2011.10.10, under Outfit Of The Day

I’ve had a longstanding love affair with 50′s style silhouettes- cinched in waist, full skirt, accentuating the hourglass figure! Although this dress looks vintage it’s not!  I actually found it tucked in on the bottom shelf of the Anthropologie sales rack…in my size!

It seems so far yet so close…. spent the weekend traipsing around town planning the wedding.We finally got the venue & date locked down which allows me to mark off 1 out of a thousand things to do on my checklist! I guess we all have to start somewhere! My goal this week is to figure out the colors, flowers, and linens! If you guys know of any good wedding blogs or inspiration please send them over my way..i could definitely use all the help!

Today i’ll be on set styling the YMI jeans spring/summer 2012 campaign as well as styling Michelle Phan on a special little project we are working on!

Happy Monday and  hope your week is filled with joy & glamour!

Choos For Dinner, Anyone?

posted by on 2011.08.30, under In The Life Of

This past weekend Michelle Phan and I attended a wedding in Dana Point! We both wore fairly simple one piece dresses but we  jazzed up our looks with these bold clutches! Feathers and studs…what a beautiful combination! Her clutch is from ASOS and mine is from Jimmy Choo!

I was so hungry, in between the ceremony & reception, that I was ready to eat my Jimmy Choo alive! Choos for Dinner, Anyone?

Michelle was wearing a beautiful cape dress from zara and a bold statement necklace  from H&M. I was wearing a one shouldered dress from H&M. I always say stick with simple pieces that drapes nicely over your body and get creative with your accessories!

RULE OF THUMB- When wearing a simple outfit always have one thing that really POPS! In this case I was wearing my glittery disco ball Jimmy Choo shoes (unfortunately my camera died before I was able to take a pix of them!) that really made this look like a million bucks! Michelle on the other hand made a statement with her bold metallic necklace!

At the end of the night we were exhausted from dancing the night away!

Love,

Chriselle

A Perfectly Pink Peepshow

posted by on 2011.08.01, under Chriselle Inc.

First off I apologize for the lack of updates..it’s been…well….crazy would be an understatement.

And the past couple of days has been a tumble of madness with endless amounts of work. Although I love my work I feel like a well-deserved break is appropriate right about now. From styling the former president of Mexico Vicente Fox and his wife for GENLUX magazine to a campaign shoot for a client to filming 2 new tutorials with Michelle Phan. I can now officially say its been quite a July! and now the anticipation starts for all the adventures of August.

These perfectly pink salmon pants were my purchase of the week! I found them for $30 at a random boutique on Melrose while shopping for a client! Such a steal!!!

(Oversized cardigan- Leyendecker (c/o- Dietch PR), top- Free people, Necklace- Free People, Pants- no name brand found on a random boutique on Melrose, Belt- Zara, Rings & Bracelet- c/o Beso Beso)

Heres a little peepshow on what Michelle Phan & I worked on this past weekend. We will be releasing this tutorial later on this week…It was probably the most creative & fun tutorial i have worked on by far!

Can you guys take a guess what it will be about?

Love,

Chriselle

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,

Chriselle
