Beauty: Les Khakis de Chanel for Fashion Night Out

Les Khakis de Chanel

Last Fashion Night Out (FNO) it was Jade and this year it is Les Khakis de Chanel.  Does Chanel really have to make me feel like I missing out any more than I already do?  I am dreaming of being in NYC for FNO and now I am jealous of every girl in the big apple that will get her hands on one of these beyond fabulous nail polishes.  My survival is solely based on the slightest hope that they will be sold internationally a month later and hopefully not exclusively in Paris, which is a rumor I have heard.

The collection, which includes Khaki Brun, Khaki Rose, and Khaki Vert, is dead-on fall 2010.  With a monochromatic fall season, what better than a monochromatic nail polish collection by the beyond amazing Chanel.  Thanks to Peter Phillips, creative make-up director, we have a fall beauty obsession!

Everyone has picked a favorite shade, as for me, I want them all! BE INSPIRED.

Loving Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 Ad Campaign

I am usually not the biggest Louis Vuitton fan, but the Fall 2010 collection is to die for, mainly because he brought the woman back.  Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge fan of the androgyny look, but I am always thrilled to see something different.  Marc Jacobs brought us back to the 1950’s voluptuous era.  Very Mad Man-esque.

My favorite part of the whole collection is the beauty pump.  I wish I could own the blue croc version but they are the price of a Chanel bag!  So I figured the satin version would be a little more affordable.  I can imagine wearing them now and storing them in my closet for when I am 40, 50 or 60 and they will remain to look chic.

My Style: Fancying Fall

leave a comment »

I am super excited for fall because I love mid-season looks.  Today’s look is inspired by this wonderful renewed vintage Bishette bag.  The pinkish red color with beige and brown, the texture of the chenille fabric and the vintage frame make this bag one of my favorite Bishette’s of all time.  This classic 1940’s shaped bag is perfect for a day out around town while also working an evening bag.

Fashion and Football

In the spirit of the FIFA World Cup 2010, I had to post this picture.  Where it came from, I can’t recall but the fact that fashion and football can be put in one sentence and then add Karl Lagerfeld, it can’t get more exciting than that!

If you’re a fashion fanatic you wait for the Chanel Resort collection held in St. Tropez this year.  With more than 80 outfits to choose from your bound to find something you’d fall in love with.  Karl Lagerfeld has done it again; BRAVO!  The setting was gorgeous with models coming onto the runway in speed boats and Georgia May Jagger was escorted on a motorbike by Sébastien Jondeau.

The extensive collection constisted of pastel printed resort wear, pastel colorblocks, white romantic dresses, hippie rocker chic outfits and more.  The collection tailored, in my opinion, to everyone.  What do you think?  Be inspired.

Chanel's Hippie Rocker

I am simply in love with these upcoming items.  The one piece is so Chanel yet modern and perfect for the riveria.  The maxi printed silk dress looks like a cool cover-up, maybe perfect for Nikki Beach.  The blue jumpsuit, I imagine wearing it to dinner at the Andrea beach.

Working Chic

(Zara Blazer, Top and Pants; Forever 21 Brooch; Louboutin Pumps) 

Since I have been living in work clothes for the past four years and that will all change starting next month, I decided to tribute my first ‘My Style’ post to my favorite work outfit.  Boyfriend blazers are key items for any working woman, they are business attire appropriate at the same time trendy.  This grey one is my favorite.  A new recent work attire MUST are high-waisted cigarette legged pants.  I have them in black, grey, and beige and can’t take them off.  They do need a certain body shape and must be worn with heels.  The brooch adds a Chanel touch to my outfit, it is Forever 21, and the black silk belt adds a different texture.

I got a comment from a colleague of mine, a guy actually, that said my outfit reminded him of a famous designer.  I asked if it was Karl Lagerfeld and explained to him what he looked like, and his response was “YES, Exactly!”  He made my day.  

PS.  Sorry the pictures aren’t the greatest of quality.  I will soon be fixing my camera or getting a better one.  Wish me luck!  If you have any suggestions of good professional camera’s please send them my way.  

Look of the Week: Keen on Kate

leave a comment »

The offspring of Goldie Hawn and Bill Hudson, Kate Hudson, is our modern day version of Marylin Monroe in this LBD (little black dress) by Louis Vuitton.  Kate chose the old school movie siren look at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of The Killer Inside Me.  I love the stunning details of black leather lining, all over the dress, which give it a modern day feel despite its traditional shape.

Who doesn’t own a LBD?  It is a wardrobe staple first introduced in 1926 by none other than ‘Coco’ Chanel.  Please have a look HERE at my other post on the LBD for more on its history and ways to wear the ubiquitous staple.  BE INSPIRED.
