Clearly, I need this helmet and matching bicycle….


oh dear. oh dear. CHANEL have branched out into LOADS of sports ‘gear’. I ACTUALLY need a helmet and this is thee one.

While I’m at it I might ‘upgrade’ my bicycle (Betty) to this swish new CHANEL (Coco) bicycle.

Well, one can but hope…

New Purse: CHANEL Zipped Wallet.


It’s my birthday coming up and well, my Vivienne Westwood purse is on it’s last legs really;/ SO I thought it might be the perfect opportunity to grow my CHANEL family.

After looking at lots of leather goods I’ve found my perfect purse – The CHANEL Zipped Wallet in Caviar leather – to match my Caviar 2.55, which also has gold hardware. BOOM.

One slight issue – can’t find the cost online, anyone know this?

Model: A13228 Y01864 94305

Also, which is the best London boutique these days? When I got my 2.55 Bond Street was best…

Don’t All Rush At Once BUT… Vintage CHANEL At Blondie Boutique.


I was dashing out on my lunch today and was stopped in my tracks….

Apologies for the rubbish pic, I’ll [EDIT] this tomorrow and it’ll be much better!

I work right beside Blondie Vintage Boutique in Spitalfields (East London) and walk past this little shop every day to/from work/Tesco. FYI, Blondie Vintage Boutique is by the same folk as Absolute Vintage (located just round the corner). Blondie generally stocks more high end Designer Vintage goodies, but they very very very RARELY showcase these treats in their window; so as you can imagine I was most definitely stopped in my tracks.

I absolutely LOVE the classic chain print and wrote a post on this a month or so again, here>>>> My Current Obsession… Chain Print

So this Chanel Vintage bomber with chain print is AMAZING! Also, check out the Vintage silk scarves – to die for!

Additionally, I spy the Vintage Moschino belt I have hanging in my belt closet; I wonder how much Blondie are selling theirs for….

Oh DEAR oh DEAR. Just realised how absolutely link heavy this post is! Oh well, hope you enjoy! 🙂

Oh, what a fashionable snowman?


James was getting his daily REDDIT update when he came across the below snowy scene…

I thought it was absolutely amazing and just had to share! Heh! It looks like Karl Lagerfeld has a doppleganger afterall!

You would really never think a snowed-under barbecue could look like a person, nevermind someone so uniquely looking as Mr K! UNCANNY!

Thoughts?

‘Coco Cocoon’ By CHANEL: Lily Allen and Karl Lagerfeld.


lilychanel

As I have previously reported, I was very keen to see the first shots of Lily Allen for CHANEL. The CoCo Cocoon Collection that Lily is the ‘face’ of is launching in CHANEL Boutiques on October 3rd. Can’t wait to see the collection! Meanwhile, the enigma that is Mr K Lagerfeld has been singing Lily’s praises….


Karl Lagerfeld: “I love Lily Allen. She looks a lot like Gabrielle Chanel and she is a self-made woman. She is cool, young and extremely witty. Photographing her for this advertising campaign was fantastic fun. She is extremely inspiring and is completely taken with the bags – with her typical English casualness!”

Ms. Judy Pink.
