Inside Chanel

Hello lovely,

Today was a holiday here in the US so this morning I lounged in bed catching up on some of my favorite you tubers.

I feel especially inspired by Inside Chanel. It was a quick video about the iconic jacket that was immediately embraced by the public upon it’s release.

Chanel was definately WAY ahead of her time and designed clothing that women could actually move in. What a visionary! No wonder the public, no… the world, flocked to her unrestrictive frocks.

Just take a look Inside Chanel…The Jacket

A Chanel jacket is one piece I would definately invest in. Or perhaps a good copy.

How about you? As always leave your comments below.

Love,

Debra

Happy Spring dolls!!

I am so happy it is finally here even though my area is expecting snow again. Lol! What can you do? In the meantime we can always cozy up in these last few weeks of unpredictable weather and dream of these lovely resort wear frocks by Temperly London.

Interesting prints were seen on both dresses and seperates. The openwork on this dress is so pretty and strappy sandals mimic the bodice.

A sweetheart neckline and three quarter length sleeves add drama to this form fitting column dress.

Intricate embroidery  on these pale satin and sheer dresses look like garden flowers emerging from their slumber.

These gorgeous pieces remind me of the sunset going down over the ocean. Stunning!

An iridescent shimmering gown with slit skirt and billowy cuffed sleeves fit for a modern mermaid.

The use of texture and details on the skirt and dress keep these simple silhouettes interesting. Love the sweet lace collar on the dress which resembles a Chinese cheongsam.

Should one need a formal gown for dinner and dancing, these silky gowns add just the right touch of glamour.

And for an edgy vibe, because Alice Temperly never strays from her bohemian roots, an embroidered leather jacket over a maxi dress.

Ms. Temperley’s design ethetics for her resort wear collection were inspired by alchemy, mineralogy, botony, astronomy and divinity.

With such a beautiful collection, it’s hard to choose a favorite. To see more of the beautiful collection, please visit Temperley London.
