Sponsored Post: Ultrabook™ Inspired by Intel – the LBD of Computers Part 2

Vintage Chanel Mini Flap Bag

When I was asked by Intel to snap and share images of designs that inspire my love of fashion it was a no brainer. As a Chanelphile, you can see Coco Chanel’s influence everywhere in how women dress almost one-hundred years after she started designing. A few weeks ago I showed you some pieces from my closet that were Chanel or Chanel-inspired. This week, I’m showing some more favorite Chanel accessories.

In some ways the Ultrabook™ inspired by Intel is like a classic little black dress in your closet. It’s dependable and can run for hours and standby for days. At less than an inch thick, the lightweight and highly portable Ultrabook™ is easy to grab and go anywhere and probably much smaller than your favorite bag that you carry your life in. The Ultrabook™ wakes up in a flash, so you get quick access to your favorite content by going from zero to go in seconds.

The Chanel Métiers D’Art Pre-Fall 2012 Paris-Bombay Accessories
have been in stores for a minute and I’ve been meaning to post it so I apologize for the delay. The truth is though, I don’t get tired of looking at these images. So whether they’ve been out a month or a day, I can look at them over and over again. The exquisite workmanship and details are too many to ignore and each time I look a these photos I discover something new. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Today, I’m sharing with you some pieces from my closet – most are Chanel – some are just Chanel-inspired – but all reflect my love of the Double C.

What I love most about Chanel are the design elements that were so important to Coco Chanel – simplicity, functionality and comfort. Her classic designs look as modern today as they did sixty years ago. And like all good design, her works don’t just look good, they feel good and are comfortable.

Chanel Paris-Bombay 2011/12 Métiers d’Art Accessories

Chanel Paris Bombay 2011 2012 Accessories

The Chanel Paris-Bombay 2011/12 Métiers d’Art collection hit stores last week and I can not wait to see these beauties in person! This is one of my favorite collections to date – the fusion of Chanel signatures with traditional Indian jewelry is gorgeous and makes for dramatic, statement pieces that would shine in your accessories collection. Since these pieces are new they won’t be included in the Chanel sale on the 14th but that doesn’t mean I won’t take a good look at them while I’m there!

Chanel Fall-Winter 2012/13 Ready-to-Wear Collection Details

Chanel Fall Winter 2012 2013 Ready to Wear Collection Details

Last week Chanel presented its Fall-Winter 2012/13 Ready-to-Wear collection and accessory-wise this was not my favorite show – don’t hate me, I’m just being honest. I found that the cuffs with large crystals sometimes read a little bit New Age-hippy-dippy to me. That said, there were also spectacular pieces like the collars/chest plates, the sexy line of the shoes, the mesh gloves (and the length of the gloves!) and the handbags (not counting the crushed velvet ones). I’m sure as more detailed images are released I will find more to love. For now, we’ll have to content ourselves with these…

Self Indulgence

chanel shopping bagToday I walked into the Chanel boutique with no intention of buying anything – I just wanted to look.  I was in the store less than a minute when a pair of earrings caught my eye.  A pair of earrings that were made for me – and that I’ve been waiting for. I’m ashamed to say I bought a non-Chanel pair of similar earrings because I thought it was a great style but I hadn’t seen a Chanel version.  When I saw the earrings, I knew they were meant to be mine.  The sales associate told me they were a new style that recently released.  I could not resist! Today, I treated myself to some double-Cs.  It was a good day!

Chanel Valentine’s Day 2012 Accessories Collection

chanel valentines day 2012 accessories

Valentine’s Day is coming and there’s no better way to say “I love you” than with the gift of Chanel (chocolate comes close though)! Chanel is releasing its 2012 Valentine’s Day collection featuring purses, small leather goods and accessories. The collection is awash in the palest pink and soft shimmery gold giving it a hint of the blush of first love. It’s hard to choose a favorite as I love them all (and would be happy receiving any as a gift dear husband) but I’m especially loving the exotics skins, the quilted bag shaped like a brown paper lunch bag, the camellia and camellia-embosses leather items, the wrist cuff, brooch, earrings, and bracelets.  This collection is so lovely and would be a great transition into spring.  And don’t forget, you don’t need a Valentine to treat yourself on Valentine’s Day.
