The CHANEL Suit



I don't think I'll ever find myself in a financital situation where I can afford to purchase Chanel pieces that I can wear for only a season. The "Chanel Suit" though, is one of a few Chanel items that I am willing to invest in as it'll be something to wear and to love for many, many years.

"[Coco Chanel] had numerous other major successes that changed the fashion industry, including the ever popular Chanel suit, composed of a knee-length skirt and trim, boxy jacket, traditionally made of woven wool with black sewing trim and gold buttons, worn with large costume-pearl necklaces." (Wikipedia)

Here are some from the Chanel Fall 2009 Paris Show.

  5. I've splurged on a 2.55 bag and sunglasses...I don't think I could do clothes, but I do appreciate them for their sheer eye candy appeal. Thanks for this post!

  8. CC: Yes, I thought the Green suit was lovely :-)but thought black was the more classic/traditional choice.
