Chanel inspired ... and wearing the Eiffel Tower

As promised earlier, here is my little jacket I purchased at Mr. Price.  My dress is the LBD I had altered a few weeks back.  It fits perfectly now and I can't believe I waited so long to take it in for alterations.

Do you use or create dream/vision/inspiration boards?

When I first heard about them, I thought it was 'way out there'.  Then I read about it, heard about them from more and more people and my curiosity grew.  As a team building exercise while I was still at the bank, our manager arranged for us to do a session with the Fairy Godmother.  It was interesting to say the least.

I eventually lost the original dream board, but created a more portable one on a pinboard.  Its amazing to look back and see what has manifested over a period of time.  I now use one regularly to keep my dreams/hopes/desires in focus. 

This Eiffel Tower pendant is along those lines.  I'm eager to re-visit Paris and when I saw this pendant, I felt it would be a portable part of the dream board.

  1. the "chanelisch" blazer is indeed great, I've been searching for such a jacket for quite a long time now, but couldn't find one I really liked so far.
    And the dress looks great now (I don't know how it was before, but now it's just perfect!)
    and thanks so much for your sweet comment!
