One of the first words I think of when I hear ‘Chanel’ is classic. Her timeless pieces attract generation after generation of women. Every item is eloquently designed for exquisite beauty. Whether it be her tweed suit, pillbox hats, the little black dress, pearl jewelry or Chanel No.5 perfume; you can guarantee that it will be distinguished. Those classic interlocking double ‘C’s are probably one of the most recognizable fashion brands in the world. I am sure we can all picture perfectly the Chanel chain-strapped quilted handbag. (That famous handbag has been around since 1955 and is still in high demand.)
I came across this Versace dress on The Cinderella Project blog and couldn’t get it out of my head. It was so beautiful and feminine, yet still had a tinge of funk to it. That pink color instantly made me think of Chanel and the pink quilted handbag and pink tweed suit made famous by Jackie O. So, it thought I would have a little fun and make a Chanel inspired pink board and embrace everything girly and classic. Because you can’t beat classic beauty and elegance, and that is exactly what Chanel embodies.
