chanel in spring

April 14, 2012


Today's agenda:
Share deliciousness from
Chanel's Spring/Summer line
(coupled with my gut reactions)
AND
offer an upcycled Chanel find.






Runway couture is not within my budget this spring
(next season? darling, who knows!?!),
so here is an accessory idea for us...



An original vintage silk Chanel scarf becomes...


for you? for a lucky girl in your life? SOLD

wearable lovely when upcycled for a
comfy custom headband.

Cool?
If you would like this never worn one from my closet
($30 and I just have one),
leave a comment and I'll send over a paypal invoice.
I didn't make it and not sure I'm gutsy enough to cut up a Chanel scarf.




Here is the silk scarf from which the headband was made.
Clever and a tad more accessible than a $50,000
made-to-order Chanel ensemble, yes?

p.s.
Let's talk Chanel makeup.
Tried it?
I adore the stuff.

Peace to you right where you are.

  7. There is nothing that compares to Chanel! I adore the perfumes. I did a post a few days ago on a Chanel day planner I found at a thrift store. It sits on my desk. Love the boards on your walls. Have a great evening.
