I should Coco!!

The Mail on Sunday have done a delightful article on Coco Chanel and how inspirational she has been on the fashion world. It goes without saying she is a true icon and her style is just so influential and inspirational for all of us as time goes by.
My most favourite purchase of the year was undoubtedly my Chanel Jacket from Mrs Stings designer sale and I had my bestest day too with the gorgeous WendyB. Its great when you pick up a really gorgeous must have item and every time I look at that jacket, I have such wonderful memories of the day I had too.
My other Chanel purchase of the year was the red bag below, from Always Authentic, a reliable seller of genuine designer bags.

I adore my jacket-I haven't worn it yet, but it is certainly the most favourite item I have in my wardrobe. To own a Chanel piece is a great pleasure and if a bag or jacket is financially out of reach, then a Chanel lipstick, nail polish or perfume would be an ideal Christmas present for yourself or a loved one. Be inspired by Chanel and link over to the article above, its a great inspirational read!!

Hi darling!
I have just made myself a cup of tea and I'm going to head over to The Mail to read the article. :)
I don't own many Chanel items yet, but I really appreciate the ones that I have. My most wanted Chanel item is probably a black quilted Chanel 2.55. I'm really looking forward to the day when I will be able to purchase it :)

Hi Sharon

I adore your Chanel things...

I am a Chanel fan, you know this already. Unfortunately I haven't Chanel blazer (yet), but I wait for the occasion the suitable price. :)))) I have similar tweed blazer, that enrich single with Chanel brooches, for example
However I have many shoes and accessories (bag, cardcase, brooch, neklace...) I got a good offer for a January onto two pieces Chanel skirts. I will buy them! I wait for it hardly already.
