Classic Karl.

Karl.

I completely and utterly adore this man.

He has confidence, talent, drive, and ability.

He is 75 years old and still remains a fashion icon.

He designs for his own label (Karl Lagerfeld), Chanel, and furs for Fendi.

It is rumored that he is to be stepping down from The House of Chanel and that Albert Elbaz of Lanvin will be taking his place. 

So sad if this is true, he has been with the house for over 20 years now!

Tonight is his Couture Fall 2009 show in Paris...I am going to dream that I went and it was absolutely fabulous. :)

UPDATE: Karl Lagerfeld will NOT be leaving Chanel

bootie-licious

I love how she has the black and white bootie paired with a neutral top- a little unexpected and yet flawless

Check out the post I did on these booties a couple weeks back on my other blog; Love & Vintage.

 -Vintage Chanel-


Because of her unique sense of style, Rumi of www.fashiontoast.com, has managed to get her blog recognized around the globe. 

I adore her, and of course in this post I am in love with the vintage Chanel backpack she is carrying!

time keeps on ticking...


True, time will pass you by.  
Fortunately, the house of Chanel has a way of bringing a nostalgic feeling to anyone who chooses to immerse themselves in their designs.
This watch reminds me of the true essence that was Coco Chanel, and what her brand was originally made of; hard work, dedication, and timeless style. 

The above watch combines white gold, pearls, and diamonds- could we get any better?

(this post reminded me of these lyrics "you told me time never waits-what is that supposed to mean? ...you tell me that time never waits- that's okay cause I don't wait for time" -Jack Johnson)
