Need Money Fast? Pawn Your Chanel Bag…

Milan Station is a well known second-hand shop for gently used or new luxury handbags. They noticed something about the women that sold their bags — sometimes, they didn’t want to really sell their bags because of the emotional attachment they had. Seeing a need, they expanded their business with a lending unit: Yes Lady Finance.

Yes, that’s the name: Yes Lady Finance. You can bring in a bag and pawn it for a small loan. You have a grace period to pay the loan back and you’ll get your bag at the end of the period. Let’s just hope ladies aren’t using these loans to buy more handbags!

If you were wondering why Chanel clothing was expensive — check out the craftsmanship that goes into making one cardigan. The attention to detail is amazing. I love the finishing touch — the label!

Karl Creates Custom Chanel Jackets for Cate Blanchett

In Woody Allen’s latest film, Blue Jasmine, Cate Blanchett is in the title role. Lucky Magazine reports that the costume designer, Suzy Benzinger, stated: “I called up Karl Lagerfeld and, I have to tell you, I was astounded…I sent a note and in two days he shipped out two custom made jackets for Cate Blanchett with the most beautiful note. And I just thought, ‘Oh my god,’ and he just said ‘For Cate, I’d do anything’”.

I wish Karl would say, “For Gabriella, I do anything.” Sigh. I’m still looking forward to seeing Blue Jasmine though – I love Woody’s leading ladies.

Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/14 Haute Couture Beauty

Chanel Fall Winter 2013 2014 Haute Couture Beauty

The dramatic look seen in the Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/14 Haute Couture show was all about strong eyebrows and expansive blush – as in expanding from the cheeks to the eyes. Many waited to see a new Le Vernis nail colour on nails but instead were greeted with fingers adorned with multiple rings on fingers from the base of the fingers to the tips. Sam McKnight completed the look with pompadour flat tops and ponytails dressed up with “back bands.” Here is a complete breakdown of how Peter Philips created the makeup look for the Chanel Fall-Winter 2013/14 Haute Couture show.
