Happy Birthday Coco Chanel!

You may be gone, but your influence and iconic style remains at the front of the fashion world. You gave us the little black dress and Chanel N°5, which are just a few of your lasting legacies. Your inspiration in the fashion world is undeniable, and as you once said “May my legend prosper and thrive. I wish it a long and happy life.”

Your legend indeed lives on. While I may not be able to afford many of Chanel's creations, I do enjoy being able to splurge on some of their cosmetics. There's something about Chanel that has an air of decadence, and there's nothing wrong with indulging in a little something that makes you happy!


  1. I have some faux Chanel jewelry pieces from a collection of Jacqueline Kennedy jewelry. Gotta love her pearls and how they don't drop evenly in the strands. Just like in this photo you choose - to twist the pearls is called Chanelling.
