OOTD: Addicted to Acessories

Accessories, Chanel Style!

Happy Thursday!! With this week coming to an end, I thought we could use a little something to lust after in the way of accessories! It was Coco Chanel who paved the way to where we are today in terms of fashion.  Responsible for the little black dress we all know and love along with the beloved boxy jacket, I find Coco Chanel to be one of the most amazing, influential, and powerful women that fashion has ever seen.  From the latest line to vintage from her first collection, Chanel is one of the most sought after brands of every girl today.

With that being said, here are a few of the many amazing accessories that Chanel has to offer:

It is little things like this that keep me going… And one day, I hope to be able to have each and every one of them! Chanel is unique in that their vintage items are more valuable and sought after than their newest collections.  That is due to the influence Coco Chanel has on the fashion industry so many years ago, that is still present today.  She truly is an amazing person, and her inspirational and wise quotes could fill the pages of a book!

I hope you ladies have an amazing Thursday today! Stay warm and stay focused… The weekend is almost here, so you just have to push through the last two days and then you can relax all you want! Remember, the harder you work, the closer you will be to having things like these (or whatever it may be that you are aiming for!).
