Born on this day Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel

What can be said?  Her legacy is so great, her style and influence permanently ingrained in the fashion world that little is left to be said.  Her name still embodies independence, style and a forward thinking attitude. Chanel herself was a shrewd business woman and unrelenting in maintaining her vision.   Today her vintage pieces are highly sought after including her line of jewelry.  Fashion fades and style remains and what better way is this exemplified than with the “Little Black Dress”.  Women all over the world reach for it  in whatever incarnation to feel stylish and relevant. Today the line is one of the best known luxury brands and still holds true with the Chanel ideal.  So in honor of Chanel’s birthday why don’t we all go out and buy ourselves a little Chanel something!  Or, how about joining me in making a personal, super fitting Little Black Dress?

  1. Indeed, what an amazing and inspirational lady. I am reading ‘Coco Chanel: The Legend and the Life’, albeit really slowly, but It is a miracle I am finding time to read at all! I would love to join you in an lbd project but again not sure if I will be able to join you in time. Mr Ooobop! is awaiting his shirt and my little boy is awaiting some curtains. Best I get my skates on! Looking forward to seeing your updates. 🙂
