Chanel The Little Black Jacket.

This exhibition has been haunting me. When I found out it finished today, it was my agenda to see it!

So, yesterday, to the Saatchi gallery I went!

It was everything I expected it to be and more, and most definitely my number one exhibition so far.

Karl is an amazing man and after seeing this, one of my favourite photographers. He captured the beauty and charisma of each of the models. The models, icons themselves, consisted of actors, dancers and models.

Chanel, The Little Black Jacket, portrayed what fashion represents. Stylist Carine Roitfeld's clear talent and creativity, along with Karls shots worked in perfect matrimony. From men to women Chanel seems to suit everyone, and Roitfeld's creations showed that one classic piece can appear brand new every time with just a little imagination. The exhibition represented what fashion and Chanel as a brand is about. Style, collaboration, passion, beauty, fun, but most importantly that underlining innovation that Karl has continued and Coco herself dared to start.
The images printed half tone and mostly in monochrome added to that feeling of the classic and the timeless, which Chanel represents to me.

What made the exhibition that little bit special was the distribution of one free poster per visitor. Which meant having the boyf with me paid off. So I now have two. These for sure will be framed and treasured.

Back at Uni, still in search of a job to fund my shopping habits. Although there may be something on the horizon I am still attempting to stay minimal on the old shopping front. This however has seem to build up a whole load of shoe addiction that seems to be growing.
Here's a couple of Topshop numbers.
Jonty Lace-up Buckle Shoes £68.

Sassy Cut Out V Throat Heels £70.

Gabbi Toecap Pointed Courts £50. BUT were £25 in the Topshop in town!
So I had a couple of minutes twirling round the shop.

So the Wedding was in June but since I blogged quite a few times about "oh no what am i going to wear" I think the final ensemble should be showcased.
The dress was a lucky find in House of Fraser, it's Religion, costing £60, the shoes a bargain from New Look for £20 (thanks student discount!), I got the bindi off eBay & my little silver sequined bag is from a fashion outlet from ages ago.

me, mumma & dadda

Me and Mumma got a fake tan the evening before and thank the lord it didn't end up coming out to dark as I looked like I had glow in the dark teeth!

At the very beginning of September was another wedding. This one was in Wales, held in a tee pee and the next day ended up in white water rafting.

The dress Topshop, won off eBay for £20, shoes are Next, Spider ring from the lanes in Brighton.

The Teepee where the wedding was held!

Here comes the bride, dum dum dum dum

Rich wore all Next, with his trusty converse.

The setting wasn't really heel territory, so out came the trainers.
