Chanel: Channeling your inner Coco

When I received confirmation for the invite to Chanel re-launch event at Holt Renfrew, a mere 12 hours in advance, hitting my favourite designer shops were not an option nor was it possible to hit Mine & Yours for a desperation pull. So into my closet I went and came out with a black and white ensemble that came to me in a nap. Seriously a last minute 4pm nap solved my wardrobe problem.

I confess that I have a compulsive habit of visiting secondhand shops and buying garments and accessories that I love – for the way they feel, their texture, cut and style – but (most times) cannot fit or wouldn’t even consider wearing them. When I get home they are put away lovingly in my collection and I revisit them every so often just to say Hello Beautiful.

For the Chanel event, black and white proved to be a solid choice. Over the course of the evening, my ensemble received many comments on how I had hit the essence of Mademoiselle perfectly. Cool. Bon soir Coco.
