Coco Chanel has been one of the most inspiring designers at all times. Despite rumors of her activities during Germany’s occupation of France during WWII and her possible affiliation with the German intelligence at the time, her footprint in the fashion industry is undeniable. From the little black dress, camellias, and the “Chanel” suit, she has left behind quite a number of signature items including the infamous 2.55 bag. Today’s post is in dedication of Coco Chanel who liberated women from corset silhouettes and brought practical and comfortable clothes for women. The outfit I chose for this post is a new release from Bare@Rose, “Chidoria“. Most people associate Bare@Rose with role play and fantasy costumes, but it also offers stylish everyday options like this tweed suit I am wearing today. The set comes with a pair of black boots, as well as a lighter color jacket, skirt and inner options, which I have stored away for another occasion.
Today I have accessorized more than usual, so I have added some close up shots of my accessories: 2.55 bag from Ricielli, pearl and flower motif necklace and earrings, big cocktail ring, and gold watch decorated with jewel stones from Donna Flora, and my everyday ring from Swallow.
I am loving this outfit. Some may say its matronly, but I think it’s very elegant and chic. You can wear the tweed jacket over jeans for a more casual youthful look. The tweed skirt can be worn with a leather biker jacket for an edgier look. Perhaps that will be my next challenge, showing you different ways to wear the same item of clothing. 🙂 I have done it before and it was quite fun. Anyways, below is a full body shot of my look today. Hope you like it! Ciao!
