It's Black and White and Chic All Over

It's you (and me) in the new year.

While dreaming (as usual)
of all the things I want
in the new year, specifically
after I watched, for the 20th
time,
Confessions
Of A
Shopaholic,
I got a sudden burst of style
inspiration. People constantly
say, "Fashion is dying."
and "Journalism is dying"
but I decided, if that's so,
then I'll just have to resurrect it,
Won't I?

So this is me giving a huge,
accessorized
finger to all those who criticize
our industry:
{say it with me}

If I want to, I will.

I don't think it matters how hard
it is to get into the fashion world.
It matters how hard a fashionista is
willing to work.

Anyway, I've realized I'm more and more in love with
CHANEL.
It's chic, it's feminine, yet edgy. It's
excessively minimal.
Plus its main colors, the main colors in my wardrobe,
and my favorite colors at that,
are black and white.
While watching a show on it's site,
[how productive]
I decided I'd be wearing this dress to my graduation in 2011.
Or maybe,realistically, I'll get a seamstress to sew me a version of it,
couture is not in my budget ;)

Some style collages for inspiration.






Joyeuses fetes!

ps- what do you want this new year?

I love your selections! Hehe I like chanel too, but in my town there are soo many people with fake chanel purses I feel that if I buy one people will just assume it's fake too! Ohhh wellz, happy 2010!!

Happy New Year! Go for it! Hard work pays off. Pretty sets, chanel is pretty much the epitome of classiness.

If I were only allowed to wear one brand for the rest of my life (assuming I could afford it) it would be Chanel. It's just so elegant and timeless! Can't wait to see your version of that beautiful dress.
