Each month my other website MISS features designer products with a matching manicure. We’ve had several months devoted to Chanel and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the holidays than with a Chanel Christmas tree. So I present to you a white Christmas tree complete with vintage Chanel jewelry and accessories as ornaments. I hope your holidays will be filled with Chanel!

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!

I’m continuing with my project of showcasing all of the accessories from each of the collections in a gallery. Here are the Spring-Summer 2012 accessories. I love the sea-inspired theme of this collection – so timelessly beautiful and on-trend for this season. You may be lucky, something you like below may selected to be a part of the Chanel sale on June 14th!

The Chanel Spring-Summer 2012 Pre-Collection Accessories have been in stores for some time now but I never get tired of looking at Chanel bags – pictures are FREE (and so are day dreams). I’m going to start cataloging the full collections here and I’m starting now with the Chanel Spring-Summer 2012 Pre-Collection Accessories. If you like what you see, you may get lucky – some of these pieces may be selected to be part of the Chanel sale starting June 14th!

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…

I don’t know where all of this stock of vintage Chanel jewelry is coming from but it seems like there’s a vintage Chanel jewelry sale every week. The latest is on Yoox.com and I’m jealous of anyone that buys anything from this sale. I always manage to want the pieces that are out of my price range – hopefully you’ll find something in yours.

Today 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!

What happens when you combine neon with Chanel? You get the Spring Summer 2012 collection. These pieces were not on the runway but a Spanish blogger was invited to a press preview in Madrid and posted some great pics of pieces from the 2102 Chanel spring summer collection.
I love the sneakers – especially the high tops – and did you see the tennis balls? So cute, but too cute to actually play with. We also get glimpses of new bags, shoes and neon jackets. It all looks very summery and fun – can’t wait to see it in stores!

Earlier today I posted images from the Chanel spring-summer 2012 ready-to-wear collection and the presentation was beautiful. Though the pieces looked lovely from afar, you really appreciate the intricate workmanship and beauty of the pieces when you see them close up. It’s also a great way to see what we can expect in the accessories department – the shoes, jewelry and bags.
For spring 2012, the Chanel accessories all evoke the aquatic theme. Pearls were everywhere – on the apparel, hair, skin and handbags. Purses came in the shape of conch shells while other bags used the signature quilting and woven leather chain detail but were in the shape of a wrapped parcel. Heels of shoes were in the shape of coral and conch shells. Finally, jewelry took its cues from seashells and coral. Check out the gallery for more detail shots…

I love seeing the white gloved individuals handcrafting Chanel accessories. In the newest video, Chanel shows us how their watches are made – with creativity, daring and expertise.
