I am sure Coco Chanel is such a inspiration to many. I chanced upon this book, "Coco Chanel: Three Weeks 1962" by Douglas Kirakland, in the library and thought I shared a few pictures and quotes from this wonderful picture book. Do check out this book!

You can spot Coco Chanel in the picture, with her beautiful white tweed hat and her pearl necklace. Though it is not clear in the pictures, her designs are so beautiful, simple with small delicate details.

(sorry for the blur pics, as I do not have a scanner)

"Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the women."

"Elegance is not the prerogative of those who have just escaped from adolescence, but of those who have already taken possession of their future."

~ Coco Chanel
