Ode to Chanel



Since 1909, Chanel has revolutionized fashion by establishing itself as a symbol of sophistication, luxury and elegance. Chanel is a fashion institution, widely recognized for its haute couture, leather goods, perfumes, cosmetics and accessories. Chanel's popularity and influence, which spans across all age groups, has led to worldwide demand for its iconic style . As shown in this photos, it's undeniable Chanel adds an element of timeless elegance to any look. Fun fact: Chanel's signature quilted fabric/leather was inspired by the jackets of jockeys.

I wanted to extend a big "THANK YOU" to Karolina of KcomeKarolina for the fabulous CSN giveaway where I was announced the lucky winner! I'm so excited and can't wait to redeem my promotion code. Thanks again Karolina! I'm a regular visitor of Karolina's blog for her style filled posts. Check her blog out here.

What I like about Chanel is the fact you don't need to over accessorize.. Chanel says everything.

Everyone adores Chanel, so Ode to Chanel indeed. The first white bag is very pretty and so chic. I have a similar bag in black.

I refuse to carry mine in Paris; every second girl is wearing one in Paris. So I decided to send my bag on an extended holiday;-)
Have a sweet and enjoyable weekend.

I think I need those boots! But if I had them I would be way too nervous to wear them, so just drooling over them is fine for now :)
