I was at Macy’s in Union Square, San Francisco yesterday and was happy to see that they were one of the forty doors chosen to launch Chanel Coco Noir. There was a really cool black display that explained the scent and displayed the bottles. I couldn’t get a really good picture because the lights were reflecting off the box but take my word for it, it was lovely. I also got to sample the scent before the launch – yay! I tried it on and it was pretty and definitely reminiscent of Coco – it seemed like a good mix of Coco and Coco Mademoiselle. I think I was hoping for something more Oriental. I was lucky enough to score a sample vial so I’ll be wearing Chanel Coco Noir for the next few days and I’ll decide whether to get a bottle based on how it wears. I have to say that I’m tempted to get it just for the bottle though – the black bottle is beautiful in person!

Douglas Rosin presents a Coco Chanel capsule collection of vintage jewelry for sale on 1stDibs to commemorate the eve of Coco Chanel’s 129th birthday on Sunday. I gave you a preview of the 1stDibs Chanel birthday sale yesterday but I’ve taken screenshots of the entire sale and editorial they put together. It’s informative, gorgeous and so inspiring. I love seeing earlier creations because I feel like they give us a glimpse into who Coco Chanel was. One piece is more gorgeous than the next – I love the excess of it all. It’s obvious why Coco Chanel is responsible for making costume jewelry popular. Enjoy, and hopefully you might even be able to buy something!

Here’s a preview of what you can expect to find – what better to celebrate Gabrielle Chanel’s birthday than to wear Chanel?
The much anticipated Chanel Coco Noir is releasing at select boutiques this Friday and I can’t wait to smell the fragrance and see the gorgeous black bottle.

Summer is whizzing by and with “back to school” in the air I can’t help but cling to my last days of summer.

Network for this week while we are trying to enjoy what remains of the summer…
