Yesterday I went to see the movie "Coco Avant Chanel" which I thoroughly loved! What an interesting, inspiration woman! The movie was beautifully done, but left me wondering more about her life. Will need to do a little research to satisfy my curiosity. She was truly remarkable for her times. So this is a little collection of Chanel-inspired items I found on Esty. (Click the pic to visit the shop).

Some of Mademoiselle Chanel's quotes:
"Fashion fades, only style stays the same."

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”
"A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous."
"The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud."
“As long as you know men are like children, you know everything!"
“Success is often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable."
“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.”
"The best color in the whole world, is the one that looks good, on you!”
“A women who doesn't wear perfume has no future.”“There are people who have money and people who are rich.”
“Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportions.”
“A woman has the age she deserves."

NYC - The Big Apple!

My family spent 3 days in the Big Apple this summer! We played the ultimate tourists - sightseeing, dining, and walking all around Manhattan. One of my favorite sights was the Annex - the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame! I'll never get to the original one so this is the perfect substitute. The first stop is a holding room with plaques of all the inductees - every time a song plays, the plaque of the artist lights up-creating a light & sound show. Next, is a movie of the history of rock & roll. After that, there are displays of clothing, instruments, and various memorabilia from many of these famous rockers. The last section is John Lennon - the New York Years - created by Yoko Ono. This is so amazing and interesting - it really gives you a peek into his private, family life and creative side. If you are in NYC - do not miss this fascinating place!
