Makeup Monday: Chanel Resort 2013

Chanel’s latest resort collection was reminiscent of Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette film. Pastel colours were not only in the clothes but trailed all the way to the hair and makeup.

The look… powdered wigs, rosy cheeks, painted lips which all fell in nicely with the French Versailles Palace where the collection was hosted. It may seem a bit much to wear on a daily basis, but we loved how fun the overall look appeared.

We love Paris Couture!

Whenever Paris Couture starts running I get giddy over fashion and the excitement of fashion weeks starts running through me. Paris Couture is what fashion dreams are made of, a traditional love and lure for craftsmanship and fine details, it’s fashion design at its very best and you can’t help but show true respect for it. The level of workmanship from the ateliers is especially inspiring. From Karl Lagerfeld’s tribute to shades of blue for Chanel, Valentino’s key to the eighteenth century’s Age of Enlightenment and “real” values to Elie Saab’s easy to digest rainbow of shiny, beautiful pink, peach, yellow, mint green and baby blue gowns.

Paris Couture shows true love to fashion “Fashion needs culture or it becomes empty” said Pier Paolo Piccioli and that’s so true. Now I’m looking forward to the ready to wear shows to begin 9 days and counting!

Vintage Coco Chanel

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”

~Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel was a pioneer when it came to elegance and sophisticated French fashion.She gave women that breathtaking allure with her attention to simplicity and her trademark Little Black Dress, which has become a staple. Chanel has made an impact on my life and Karl Lagerfeld has continued to do so, one of my favorite shows to date is the Fall 2011 runway show. So when our vintage buyer sourced some rare Coco Chanel vintage jewelry, I was a little bit taken aback. They sure do dazzle with elegance!
