Coco before Chanel, just saw this lovely movie that covers the early life of the legendary French designer Coco Chanel from orphan to fashion entrepreneur in a whirl wind of heartache, heartbreak, and Love of beauty, in horses in houses as in French Chateau. Glimpses of Coco with cigarette in hand as she pulls feathers out of a hat for less is more. She defies the fashionable corset at the time, claiming women to be embarrassing little cream puffs in them. Her style, beauty in it's simplicity as in the little black dress she wears as she swirls around the dance floor in the arms of her lover, the irresistible Alessandro Nivola (Boy Capel). Audrey Tautou, the dazzling star as Coco exudes the self-confidence and allure that made Coco irresistible to men and women alike. Today on a rainy shopping spree, I found myself drawn to lace tights to be worn with a skirt or little black dress rather than leggings. I am taking more time to look for the perfect white blouse whether it be ruffled or not. One delicious scent to wear rather than two. I am still on the hunt for my fall perfume. I loved Lola but the scent doesn't seem to love me. Currently wearing Michael Kors lovely and long lasting but gave me a little bit of a headache.
