Christmas in the Krischic Crib – The Chic List

I’ll not be home for Christmas…you can count on it. I’ll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams this year. That is the reality of being an on-camera journalist.

MyContinue reading “Christmas in the Krischic Crib – The Chic List”

The 10 Chicest Fashion Documentaries to Watch While You Avoid Coronavirus

Coronavirus, coronavirus, coronavirus. Oh my! The World Health Organization recently named the virus a pandemic, which means “a worldwide spread of a new disease.” The U.S. currently has the 8th most confirmed cases of the disease, many public events in the LA area and around the U.S. have been cancelled and Trump named COVID19 aContinue reading “The 10 Chicest Fashion Documentaries to Watch While You Avoid Coronavirus”

The Gucci Beauty Pop-up – A Day in the Chic Life

Not pictured: the start to my day was spilling coffee on my white duvet that my grandmother gave me. I immediately doused the lace bed-dressing with Shout and threw it in the wash. It miraculously survived!  Why am I telling you this? To peel back the thick and luxurious curtain that an Instagram or blogContinue reading “The Gucci Beauty Pop-up – A Day in the Chic Life”

Krischic Attends Chanel ‘À La Plage’ in Palisades Village

The smell of my mother’s Chance Chanel perfume contains traces of my childhood. The notes of musky vanilla espoused with floral breaths of jasmine and iris take me back to her bathroom sink as she applied on makeup from compacts of interlocked ‘C’s. I wear that same scent as I ascend the staircase of theContinue reading “Krischic Attends Chanel ‘À La Plage’ in Palisades Village”

Your Backstage Pass to Dior Backstage Pop-Up in LA

As my Dior Backstage Pop-Up makeup artist, Tara applied Dior’s Capture Youth: Age Delay Advanced Creme (also super reassuring hearing from her that I present no signs of aging, yay!) onto my face, we gushed about Christian Dior’s history as a brand. I thought of the parallels between Christian Dior’s timelessness and the time-freezing moisturizerContinue reading “Your Backstage Pass to Dior Backstage Pop-Up in LA”

Inside the Armani Redbox Pop-up

Everyone has their ‘power’ color: a hue that when you wear it, it makes you feel as if you can take on the world fearlessly. For me, red is that color: it’s powerful, it’s sultry, it’s classic (I’ve written a previous ode to red before). So as you can imagine, stepping inside Giorgio Armani’s redboxContinue reading “Inside the Armani Redbox Pop-up”

BeautyCon Pop: My Makeup Mantra

Last weekend, I ventured through what I would call a beauty funhouse for makeup-lovers: BeautyCon Pop! Beautycon Pop is a ‘pop-up’ experience where different cosmetic brands have taken over individual rooms and decorated according to their aesthetic preferences: Makeup brand, Limecrime opted for a neon museum of bright pinks and greens with “The Birth ofContinue reading “BeautyCon Pop: My Makeup Mantra”

How to Do ‘Couture’ Off the Runway

Ah couture…the most transformative form of clothing to exist! A couturier uses needle as its pen, thread as its ink to weave together a story—a fairytale if you will— that wakes up that part of humanity that craves beauty and majesty in a world that can feel oftentimes mundane. The problem with fairytales is thatContinue reading “How to Do ‘Couture’ Off the Runway”

She’s The Lady in Red…

There’s something about wearing red. Red is sultry. Red is vibrant. Red is a personality, not a color. Red is the embodiment of confidence, elegance, and daringness. These were all things I thought about and felt as I walked as demurely as one can in heels across a boardwalk of uneven wood with holes between,Continue reading “She’s The Lady in Red…”

Redefining the “Beach Body”

My mind and my heart belong to the past, and ironically, my body shape reflects that. I have a 1950s body that may not fit the context of today, but I don’t see it as outdated.   I love my curves, and the unique way they take shape to clothing. Yes, my shape may notContinue reading “Redefining the “Beach Body””
