Vintage Chanel



My love for Chanel has grown immensely over the past years. The Chanel brand is the epitome of class and style. The more I learn about the fashion house's heritage, the more respect I gain for it. Coco Chanel's was an orphan whom started to make her own suits and grew that into an international icon of class and style.

You could imaging then my thrill when I found these vintage Chanel pieces!





They work really well as separates, too. Adds that touch of class to any outfit.




Another reason to search for vintage pieces is also it's affordability factor. Most of the time, you can get a quality piece from your favourite couture house at a fraction of the retail price.

Happy Hump Day!

Adieu Summer - Layering Skirt over Dress






It's the first day of fall, and I am already feeling the crisp autumn chill.

No longer can I just frolic around in a silk dress. Additional source of warmth must be added.


Enter a textured maxi circle skirt.

Often, the added warmth is enough to take the edge off.

Plus, it's the prefect the bridge from summer to fall.





It's also the perfect season for gold accents.


These beautiful vintage Chanel pieces are the perfect accents to a simple outfit. Check out these beautiful gold pins on ShopBop.


A pair of mules finishes the outfit perfectly.

This outfit can be made even more weather resistant by layering a scarf and a jacket. It will for sure make appearances on my other social media platforms.

What are some of your favourite fall fashion tricks?

Chanel SS2013 Beach Hula Hoop Bag


SHOPtalk at shopbop.com

Paris Fashion week is in full swing! Every year, this is when the fashion heavy hitters come out to play.

I am personally the most excited about Chanel! Lo and behold, Karl Lagerfeld delivers. I am beginning to think that guy does not know how to disappoint.

Check here for the full collection.

What stopped my heart this time is this bag!

The Hula Hoop Beach bag in white.

Look at how amazing it is! I have never seen anything like this. Karl Largerfeld, you have my heart forever.

This is totally a Poser purse! I would take it anywhere and everywhere with me.

And I will take that swimsuit as well. I like how the whole two piece illusion is being utilized in that piece. It helps the whole bikini stay in place but at the same time, it offers the fun feel of wearing a tankini.

If the purse is a little too big and impractical to for everyday use, he also did a mini version.

As well, some new material is introduced in a fabulous way as reflected by this green acrylic clutch.

I for one, will take that beach bag exactly as is!

White Hot Chanel

I'm in love!

With a purse!

This purse!

I was struck hard yesterday inside Holt Renfrew!

I have never seen anything else more beautiful. Actually, I have been quite impressed by their SS 2012 collection of purses.

But this one is just exceptional. a bit hard to see from the photo, because no picture can capture the true magnificence of the HGbag anyway.

The texture of the python is coated with a pearl sheen that emulates the wondrous colours of mother of pearl. Upon first gaze it's white, but you began to notice the wonders of nature as other colors reveal themselves to you, shades of pink, blue and green.

The gold hardware finishes off the full effect of this amazing bag.

If I can only have one thing, this would be it.

Here she is again with a different Instagram filter.

Look at the amazing craftsmanship and the texture of the python.

AH! I die!

Chanel's iconic little black tweed jacket.

What's even more amazing about this classic and iconic piece is the way it is constructed.



The meticulous craftsmanship is amazing!

Here we can see the jacket in action.


This would be like my little black dress, but instead my little black jacket over my little red, orange, yellow or multi-coloured dresses.

One day Chanel, one day. Just like many more items from you talented design house I wish to own.
