Scarlet/Fire...Everyone likes a good blend

Red looks just as good in Vogue in 1968...

Red is a strong color and thus can be hard to pull off. It's a classic fashion statement and is always a color designers turn to, season after season. Rock a red cocktail frock with bright sunnies like Alexa Chung or a head to toe look as seen on the streets of Paris. For those who are afraid of commitment, pair our Chanel satin bag with jeans and a leather jacket to go from day to night or try the YSL red taffeta skirt with a lace top or tee. Keep in mind red goes well with all the neutrals: black, white, navy, brown, and grey or try color-blocking with pink, blue, yellow, green or orange. The possibilities are endless.

Chanel jackets are a fashion staple. They are one of the best vintage buys because they are built to last and the quality is unbeatable. Jackets aren't all business as seen by these girls above. Throw on a Chanel jacket with some shorts and tall boots and you are ready to go. Rachel Bilson rocks this look particularly well, opting for simple layers and short hemlines. We will be stocking a bunch of Chanel jackets, all colors of the rainbow, which are sure to top everyone's wish list, so you too can channel your inner Kate Moss or Rachel Zoe.  It doesn't get any cooler than that.

A Beautiful Life




Marisa Berenson is one of the chicest women on the planet. Run don't walk to check out Marisa Berenson: A Life in Pictures. I picked up a copy on Amazon and I can't put it down, page after page of beautiful shots and the clothes are just drop dead amazing. Can you imagine someone today rocking the pink brocade coat and shorts? Totally glamorous!
