Coco Chanel

My love onces tried to woe me with those double "C" Chanel earrings... you know the ones I am talking about, no? Yet, those shiny little pieces did not impress so I had him return them... They just weren't me, and at $495 a pair, why not just buy me a flight somewhere?

Still, despite turning my nose up towards those earrings, I still have an interest in Coco Chanel (and my love!)... Her impact on fashion is broad and longstanding; she's an icon, after all. So the movie, Coco Before Chanel, definitely has caught my eye. Especially since it features Audrey Tautou as Coco. I haven't yet seen it, but am looking forward to it... it the meantime I found this article from the UK to be a nice interlude.

Have you seen the movie? Do you own any Chanel pieces? (As for me... I was so close to with those earrings... but as of yet, still do not).
