Chanel Metiers d’Art Paris-Dallas 2013/14 Collection: Lone Star State of Mind

Just one more week until Chanel unveils the 2013/14 Métiers d’Art collection in my adopted hometown! As excited as I am for the show, I’m just as thrilled to see Karl Lagerfeld’s new film The Return. It features Geraldine Chaplin as Coco Chanel, a role that according to Karl required her to be mean, as Coco had a mean streak herself.

Chanel Treasure Trove: Timeless Vintage Investments

Beloved by in-the-know downtown girls and the Olsen twins alike, What Goes Around Comes Around has been a trusted New York City institution for vintage finds for years. When it comes to vintage (from iconic designer pieces to perfectly beat-up old T-shirts), there is no experience quite like going to their Soho location and scoring a rare find.

Chanel Métiers d'Art & Short Film

Chanel Métiers d’Art & Short Film: The Return

If it seems that Dallas is becoming a major fashion hub, that’s because it is! Chanel has cemented this fact by choosing my adopted city to debut its latest film – The Return. Following the success of last year’s 18-minute short Once Upon a Time, Karl Lagerfeld has once again taken up writing and directing, this time expanding to a 30-minute feature.

Anti-Diaper Bags: Mother’s Day Comes Early

Moms-to-be always ask about diaper bags, but what about those nine long months of being pregnant? Don’t get me wrong: I loved being pregnant, so I’m not talking Grace Kelly “hide-the-bump” types of bags. Instead, the stylish kind that make you feel pretty, even if that’s their sole purpose.

Chanel Boy Chain Bag: Get On the Chain Gang

I’ve been eying the Chanel Boy since it first came out; I just haven’t been able to pull the trigger, as I’ve been over-thinking it (a twist on a classic, does it read too trendy?). But now there’s this version. The Chain bag.

Chanel Spring 2014 Collection

Chanel Spring 2014 Collection: Art Star

Ever the showman, Karl Lagerfeld didn’t disappoint with the big reveal of Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection. He conceptualized it as a massive art unveiling, transforming the Grand Palais into a Lagerfeld-laden gallery, full of paintings and sculptures (75 to be exact, imagined by Karl himself).

Seen on the Street Roundup: Paris Fashion Week Spring 2014 Street Style

Now that we’ve seen all of the gorgeous new creations come down Paris’ runways, let’s take a look at what the chic attendees were toting. Because as magical as a show is, the way a bag translates into our real lives is far more important. A recurring character on the scene was Charlotte Olympia’s Time Piece clutch (at Neiman Marcus for $1,276).

Snob or Slob: Taylor Swift’s Shirt Dress Ensemble

Now I love a good shirt dress, especially this time of year. They are comfortable, versatile, and look great with flats or heels which is a plus when the weather starts to turn. However, there’s something about this particular dress that’s a bit too man-ish? I get that’s the idea of the look, but this one is a bit too bulky.
