Style Icon: Coco Chanel


Oh, how I love Coco Chanel. Her iconic style lives on as the design house she built continues to create gorgeous clothing, with Coco’s aesthetic still very much present in today’s designs (thanks to Karl Lagerfeld).

Unfortunately, I don’t have a budget for Chanel, but I love to look at the clothes. Lately there’s been great focus on the life and times of Ms. Chanel, most notably with the film “Coco Before Chanel,” starring Audrey Tautou, the book The Gospel According to Coco Chanel, by Karen Korbo and an article in today’s New York Times Style section.

Chic and elegant, that is Coco Chanel.

I'm a chanel fan, too. I just ran across this quote and had to share -

"A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future." Coco Chanel

How could you argue with that? I must get the book.
