I decided to dress up with a little inspiration from Chanel for the movie. I love several things about Chanel, the pearl necklaces, the tweed jackets, the 2.55 and I remember Chanel as having chic primary colours especially the combi of black and white.
So I wore my new black and white dress from Furfur I got during Tangs sale, pearl necklace my grandma gave me, my trusty vintage Coach, newly bought check thights from Uliqo and Newlook shoes. I wanted to give my black and white outfit just that hit of colour so chose the check tights instead of black ones. I would much love to pair the dress with cream lace tights, and hope I can find one soon.
If this Furfur dress looks familiar, it's because I took a pic of it in the dressing room and posted it sometime ago. But it had longer hem and sleaves which I altered to give it a slightly more chic fitting.
I must say boy and I loved the show. Besides knowing the life of Chanel, it showed how the life of women was before and inspires women to be independent. It also brings out the idea of risks and daring to be different, taking paths others do not dare to.
Besides that, the costume, of course, was another area to focus. I loved her masculine suits and dresses. Then it was the hats she made, and the bow in her hair she wore during one of the dinners. Finally, the white tweed suit. Have you watched it yet?
