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 blog […]

Since Paris Fashion Week, my mind has been locked on inter-locked C’s: Chanel. My followers who tune into my IGTV show, Fashion Week with Krischic (specifically the couture week episode) know my feelings toward the Chanel SS20 Haute Couture show–quite lukewarm actually. But Chanel creative director, Virginie Viard redeemed herself of that pilgrim-esque collection with […]

Ever since I can remember, my brother, Sean Vartan and I have been best friends. Granted we’ve butted heads throughout the years due to the nature of our six-year age gap and the fact that I am a girl and he is a boy. Fellow brother-sister duos will understand this! But Sean and I also […]

Is it to presumptuous to say these pre-Oscar snaps deserve to win “Best Picture?” Or for this dress to win “Best Costume Design?” You be the judge of Acada-me. I’d apologize for the triple pun I just served you, but I think you know me well enough to realize it’d be unauthentic to do so! […]

My mind sometimes flickers to childhood memories of my father picking out his workwear in the mornings. It’s funny: I frequently talk about how my mother’s style affected my relationship with fashion, but in a way so did my father’s. As a chief executive officer, he has always had a closet chalk-full of tailored suits […]

That was So Last Decade: My Style Evolution

It was a wintry afternoon in 2010 during cheer practice. I was bundled in a hot pink Victoria Secret Pink crew neck, black velour track pants and knitted black Uggs when my fellow cheerleader and friend turned to me and said: “Kristin, I love your outfit. You have the BEST style.” The last five words […]

Velvet Trimmings for Christmas

Velvet? For Christmas? Groundbreaking. Steadfast Krischic readers will know that I devotedly deck in the luxe fabric during this time of year (2017, 2018 and 2018 again!), but only recently did I discover the silk thread’s seductive powers on me. The key is in the connotation: during the Renaissance period specifically, wearing velvet was an […]

It was a chance encounter that I came coat-to-coat with Edouard Manet’s “Portrait of Isabelle Lemonnier with a Muff.” Sure, my Sunday visit to the Getty Museum was the product of intentionality, specifically to see their latest exhibition, Manet and Modern Beauty. I came across longtime favorites by the French modernist painter (1832-1883) like “Spring” […]
