Coco Chanel before 1914
Her profile as exquisite as the clothes she designed. All images are taken from the book I received for Christmas:
CHANEL, Collections and Creations
by Daniele Bott.
I love this book. The photos are gorgeous and there is so much good information. I'm also a sucker for bold quotations, which this book has in spades. One of my faves below:
Now I never need to make excuses, Coco paved the way. Brilliant!
A photo worth a thousand words

An illustration by Karl Lagerfeld.
I'm fascinated and spellbound. Chanel speaks to my soul. Next year I'm diving head first into all aspects, every detail. I want to be bold, fearless, put on my magnifiers and sew, sew, sew. I will buy fine sharp hand needles and silk thread in bulk.
The coatdress was a success- thank you for your comments and maybe your crossed fingers that it would fit :)) DD is 16.... just cut her own hair short... and dyed it jet black... Okay then. A picture could come later. Or not. And I thought it was hard to get myself in front of a camera. I will take a picture of the gray coat very soon. Remember the Dior coat? Never worn it, still has some basting threads in it, but it's done. Even have a review ready. Maybe DH will buy me some gray boots... we like to do our personal shopping after Christmas :))
I hope you all had a peaceful Christmas/holiday.
