Sweet Dreams


I have to admit, I was a bit of a socialite for most of this week (hence the lack of posts). In the space of four days: I was in the hairdressers twice, got dolled up twice, slept about four hours for each of those nights. So, in other words-lots of fun!

This week, hopefully, will be more mellow and relaxing. I got this Coco Chanel book from my sister and so far, so good. I love reading about the somewhat mysterious legend that is Chanel; her life, her apartment, her inspirations and so on. Socialising doesn't allow for much fashionable reading, but I will more than make up for it this week. A nice bed time story, yes?

Have you read or are you reading this book, also? What do you think?

I've never read that. I've got the other one by Edmonde Charles-Roux which is full of wonderful pictures too. I bet they're both lovely!

No, never even heard of this book. But it looks fascinating. She was such a pioneer in fashion and a public figure, yet so private at the same time. I think her mystery was a part of her becoming everyone's obsession. Would love to read this book!

Fun pictures! Sounds like a very enjoyable week, too. I have not read this book on Chanel -- so far only the one from the Met exhibition a few years ago -- but I've heard it's very good. Enjoy! xo style, she wrote

No no no, Sarah, this simply won't do! You got dolled up TWICE and didn't take pictures to share with us? Unacceptable! :P

The Chanel book does look like a great read ;)
