A little bit of luxury...

I love Chanel.

I would love to own Chanel clothes, handbags, watches and most definitely the fine jewellery (I wish!).

Coco Chanel inspired women to change, not only what they wore but attitudes as well.  Known for dressing very simply and having her hair short in a bob.  Coco created and designed a lot of what you and I wear today; the little black dress (there should be one in every girl's wardrobe!), wide leg trousers, she used jersey fabric in a lot of her creations and one of her best known trademarks is her costume jewellery, which today we can't live without - adding a bit on here & there.  Famous quotations from Coco include "When accessorizing always take off the last thing you put on" I frequently use that one!

I've learnt that I can have Chanel, I wear No. 5, not every day but definitely on those special occasions!  There's make up too; the nail varnishes are fabulous, and what I really love about them is that they always have 2 or 3 colours that change every season, which is a great way to keep your look updated & fresh.

Aspirational brands keeps us dreaming of a better future and it's nice to treat ourselves every now & then.  I have my little luxuries - why not treat yourself to yours!
