Chanel takes on the American West in Dallas,Texas

In 1957, Coco Chanel visited Dallas,Texas at the invitation of Stanley Marcus leader of Neiman Marcus and immediately fell in love with the city during the post war times when Paris shunned her. For Chanel's Metiers d'Art fashion show this year, Karl Lagerfeld took inspiration from this trip to create this show at Fair Park in Dallas, Texas. Every December for more than a decade, Karl Lagerfeld has picked a city as the theme of the show and Dallas was this years lucky choice. When asked about why he chose this destination he said, "I love Texas. I love Texans. There’s another reason. When Chanel reopened, the French press was beyond nasty. The only press that understood it immediately was the American press, and Neiman Marcus gave her the Oscar for her collection, so I think it’s a nice thing to go there."

This three part spectacular occurring on December 10 featured various celebrities such as Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning, Alexa Chung, and Zoe Kravitz and hosted over 900 guests. The show was said to be "eccentric, fun, and even cowboy chic". The collection connects with many because of the funky fashions that the many who own country homes and ranches will be sure to want said Becca Cason Thrash. These clothes were the fashion epitome of the American West in true form. 

Below are some of my favorite looks from the show. I love Native American inspired fashions so many of the looks from this show fit directly with that love. Hope you enjoy. 
Until Next Time,

'Mad for Plaid'

If you've read my past posts from the fall, you know I love plaid. These pants are some of my favorites and were also featured in my ready to wear fall attire post. This tartan pattern is so popular this fall and winter season and it's hilarious to me because in high school, my catholic school uniform skirt was this exact same print and looked exactly like many of the tartan skirts that are being sold by various retailers. But nonetheless, I love this pattern along with many of the other plaids that were featured in various designers f/w collections. Another thing about this outfit that I loved was this blazer that I found at my job because I love emerald. Its such a great fall and winter color and compliments many different skin complexions. 
Its already December, can you believe it? I'm beyond happy because i'm finally done with all of my finals and am headed home for winter break. A whole month of rest and relaxation, what more could a girl as for after such a stressful semester. Hopefully I can accomplish all of the goals that I have set for myself to do while i'm at home, including making some changes to my blog so look out for those =) 
Until Next Time,
