All About Coco

All About Coco


After having experienced the effect of carrying a huge Chanel shopping bag through Antwerp (girls giving me looks ranging from suspicious to all shades of green - guys looks of pure fear after having glimpsed at their ladies), must admit have become a little addicted to the uplifting feeling of wearing the double caps logo.

Decided I need to integrate more Coco into my everyday life. Getting that trompe l'oeil tattoo (Chanel SS2010), or wearing nothing but No5 (I wonder what my colleagues would say, probably “How very Marilyn of you”...) seem reasonable options, considering that I’m broke all the time and the last bottle of hip (and affordable) seasonal nail polish is always snatched away by some fancy magazine's beauty editor.

*Sigh*. But then I saw BF's smile as he was taking today’s foto* and was reminded: The best things in life are free, only the second best are very, very expensive.


Today’s shoes are Chanel

*Won’t mention that BF was probably charmed by my strawberry cake which he knew he would be spoiled with after the shoot.... but hey: if that’s what it takes.....

P.S.: For all gal's who can't get enough Coco as well: Den Haag's Gemeentenmuseum is hosting the exhibition "Chanel the Legend" until February 2014
