A couple of weeks ago, I bought the October Vogue Paris edition, went to my close-by tanning/amazing view/reading spot, and got some much needed French-practice, with the help of their Paris Fashion Week - ponderings. Normally, I don´t take that much inspiration from fashion magazines, or even read them much anymore. But this was a refreshing exception. I completely fell for their cover photo for a smaller spread about the upcoming fashion week. An old-school Chanel inspired shot, the classics with a twist.
Yesterday I talked with a dear friend of mine, and she asked me, if I had any good style-inspirations, preferably budget friendly since we´re still students. Well my Chanel Chic isn´t that budget friendly, but with a little digging and patience, you´ll find your inner Chanel Fashionista look from main street shops.
I have to quickly mention, that yesterday I managed to get downhill for the first time (hill being a big understatement, since it feels more like a mountain to me, being used to mostly flat surfaces) with those 12cm wedges I´m wearing in the picture above. Now the real challenge is to do the same in my 13cm Minna Parikka Angora shoes, without breaking any body parts. I´m pretty sure there is a really good, safety-related, reason why most Lyonnaise stick to flats. No need to start defying the rules of gravity.
Animal prints are also a long-time favorite of mine. Although to be honest, I haven´t used prints too much yet. But now I´ve found some items I really love, especially black and white and leopard warms my heart.
Right now I´m snuggling under a warm blanket, drinking green tea spiced with honey and listening to the new Kings of Leon album, and planning my new challenge - a budget friendly Chanel Chic look. When I get rid of this flue once and for all, I´ll hit the stores and find the perfect, inexpensive, Chanel inspired look for you guys!
Enjoy your Friday, and come back soon again for some pics from my trip to Venice!
