fashion friday

I want to begin exploring my love for fashion a bit more, so I decided to start Fashion Fridays. Each Friday I'll run down my love (or hate) for a fashion trend, or designer collection, or just rant about something cool I saw in a store. Don't ask me's not like I can afford any of it...and I am no expert...I just love it.

For my first ever Fashion Friday I am going to dive into the Spring 2010 ready-to-wear collection from Chanel. This, of course, was inspired by my lady friend jess and I watching "Coco Before Chanel" this past weekend (an incredible movie about Coco's life...get it and watch it when you can).

First of all, the runway and back drop were amazing. It looked like an enchanted farm forest...and there was a band set up in the middle! (kinda looked like lily allen, but I'm not sure) Second of all, the whole collection was super cute! I hate when you see a runway show and every piece looks like something a twig on crack would wear.

Here are some of my favorite looks:

So cute and fun.  I would totally wear this one for work! 

Love this top (not the pantless look so much).  Such a cute party dress (could almost pass for fun wedding dress...also, would look much better on shorter person)

These are 2 of my favorite looks.

Another 2 that I adore and would wear to a party the first chance I got.

These are perfectly light and springy. I want some knock-off versions immediately!

Love this skirt, not so much with that suit top, and this dress is super fun.

Just more cuteness...why can't karl lagerfeld be my cool uncle?

Adorable accessories:

And some of my not-so-favorites:

Not feeling the puffy short-sleeve jacket.   Is this inspired by the Duggers?

Trying to do too many things.  This looks like it was cut out of, liberty bell is not a good shape for the hips.

And, of course, the genius himself. He has done an amazing job of keeping to Coco's vision.

p.s. I totally just realized I had and opened at the same time...classy.
