The Gospel According to Coco Chanel

Inspired by the book that I am reading (which I'm sorry to say I haven't been inspired by)....

... the outfit of choice is Chanel's favourite - a little black dress.. worn with a spritz of Coco Mademoiselle and a Chanel chain belt.

I'll tell you the story about the belt.  I saved long and hard and in 2007 bought my first property.  I had a few hundred dollars left over after settlement, so I went into Chanel to reward myself with a pair of crystal CC earrings, which were out of stock, so I bought a chain belt.  I love it, but I don't wear it nearly enough.  Unfortunately the first thing people say to me is "IS THAT FAKE???"

This photo is a few years old (I have a tan now!!), so I'll take some new photos of the belt with my SLR over the weekend.


  1. Hallo, I am curious and waiting for the new shoots! &:)

  2. Ooooh, I like it! Very elegant indeed.

    And how rude are those people?!

  3. Great outfit choice. The belt looks really nice!

    Oh is that out awesome can't wait good weekend reading

  5. The belt looks great ... you should wear it more often!
    Happy weekend!

  6. It sucks how fakes are so common now that when you do save up to get the real thing, people just expect that it's not genuine. It looks lovely on you though!
