The Runway: Paris











Chanel Couture / Spring 2011.

Good morning, my friends! First off, I want to thank every single person who left a kind note on the previous post yesterday, while I have been resting and improving each day. Your words made me smile—and I am blessed to know you! I am still not feeling myself quite yet, and am keeping things quiet in the meantime, but wanted to stop by and share a few things. Also, a thank you to my Mum, whom I love so much, and who kindly created yesterday's post in my absence.

And now, onto today's topic: Chanel. Have you been enjoying the runway shows as well? To date, my two favorites are undoubtedly Chanel and Elie Saab. Both are so feminine and well assembled in style, color and attention to detail. The soft blush and frothy, ethereal feel to the pieces is just divine, especially offset by bits of black, creating such a striking look when brought together... I can only imagine walking around in one of those long, languid skirts, that seem to fall and fan to the extent of a delicate blossom in the breeze... perfectly!

  1. hope you are feeling better Sarah! I am so in love with everything that's come off the Paris runway so far. It's Ultra fem and the colour combos, fabric choices and styling are all fabulous. (particularly fond of the pink at the top of the post) ... take care

  3. Hey sweetheart! Glad to see a new post from you - missed them! Elie Saab collection was my absolute favourite this time, so so soooo beautiful. As far as Chanel goes (and please do not throw heavy objects at me...) I am not in love... I do like a few pieces including the skirts and that black coat, but that's about it.

    Have a wonderful weekend and stay well!!!

  10. Sarah, so happy to hear that you are better! Vertigo is horrible, and until you have experienced it, it is impossible to describe.
    I LOVE Chanel, and these images are no exception!
    Take care of yourself, and get better!

    Oh sure, Chanel has kept up the name for elegance for quite some decades.
