That’s the saying, right? “Chanel means never having to say “I’m sorry”.
Or is it: Flowers say I’m sorry, Chanel says I’ve learned my lesson?
Maybe the moral is just Chanel is always a good plan.
Let’s level with each other, Chanel is one of those iconic high end designers that says so much in the name. It’s often a goal or a standard for the fashion set, and Chanel is often used to convey high fashion and society all at the same time.
I’m not always one for cliches. But the thing about cliches? Sometimes they are true. And Chanel? There’s something special about it: the bags, the clothes, the shoes. I’ve even broken one of my “rules” for Chanel, I’ve worn an outfit that’s Chanel head to toe, and it still feels fresh and modern. That’s the beauty of Chanel, the vintage pieces (this skirt) feel timeless and while it’s high end classics, the pieces feel on trend (socks and heels)!
And I lied -the t-shirt isn’t from Chanel. It’s from Target. So it’s not head to toe Chanel. But, you get it.
Maybe the real meaning behind “Chanel means never having to say “I’m Sorry”, is that you shouldn’t say sorry for wanting Chanel.
Confession? I’ve only ever bought Chanel in vintage or resell shops. It’s still Chanel though, and it’s still magical. These boots? Runway that I lusted after, I’ve always loved the idea of socks with heels (see one of my first posts and an update here), and knew that I had to have these Chanel boots. Alas, when they were released, I couldn’t afford them. What they don’t tell you is that part of fashion is patience, and I stalked and found these sock boots on eBay. Good things sometimes come to those who seek them out.
This skirt? Vintage, and let’s not go into how magical vintage Chanel suits are; we’ll be here all day. But they are. And while they are some of the fashion that appreciates with age, you can find affordable Chanel (vintage and newer) on resell sites, this skirt is from Vestiaire Collective. I love that it’s classic, timeless, and still feels modern. I’ve worn it with Blazers, sweatshirts, t-shirts, and button ups. There is no wrong way to wear Chanel.
But, is there a thing as too much Chanel? As I’ve said before, I usually avoid wearing head to toe designer. It can feel stale. I think it’s so modern to mix-low and high, old and new, etc. Here? I couldn’t resist. I love wearing these sock boots with skirts. I love this skirt. Is it too much? Could you argue that a little break up would be more fresh?
Sure. But, Chanel means never having to say “I”m sorry”. And I won’t say I’m sorry for this outfit.
What do you think?
I’ve linked so much vintage Chanel that may be in your price range. (Including these Chanel boots in black-under $500!) It’s well worth the investment and can make any day magical. I recommend it. And don’t say sorry!
