Happy birthday, Chanel



“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”

-Coco Chanel

Today would have been Coco Chanel's birthday. I highly suggest everyone take out a little No. 5 or Chance and spritz some on before heading out the door. Take some time to remember the women who changed fashion forever.

If you want to learn more about her, I highly, highly suggest this book. "Chanel and her World" has some amazing photos of Coco and truly is the best biography on her around right now.

You will learn everything you need to know about fabulousness, trust me. ;)

Anyway, even though I was feeling down the past week, I managed to take some photos of the outfits I have worn in the past few days.

Let me know what you think. :)




Pink shirt, H&M; white tank top, Express; jean shorts, Express; flip flops, White House/Black Market; bracelet, Forever 21.




Green shirt, Express; skirt, Missouri Bluffs; sandals, Jimmy Choo.




Black shirt, Express; skirt, White House/Black Market; shoes, Jimmy Choo.


Shameless plug: My best friend and I started a fashion blog a little while ago. Our latest post is about Etro. You can check it out here.

Happy birthday Chanel. I like that quote of hers, I've seen it a couple of times now. I like your style. Especially the first pink top, I like the sleeves. I also love the last outfit. Those shoes are so perfect, I want them!

Ooh, sounds like a must read! Hon, that pink looks amazing on you!!! Must buy more in that colour :)
p.s. LOL, it's not a myth. Sadly I am old enough to know that ;)
