CHANEL I Like...
I was never really a huge fan of the iconic fashion institution that is CHANEL. And yes, that is my name and all (my mother was a fan of No. 5) but it was just never my "go to" style choice. I love the handbags, sunglasses and the fragrances, I have a bottle of Chance and Mademoiselle in my collection right now. I had just always thought of the CHANEL clothing brand to be a bit "stuffy" and more suited to much older women, who wore pantyhose, and "lunched" with friends, and carried little dogs with poufy ears and tails. And that is sooo not me, I'm more bohemian chic with a downtown urban twist. Which is why I was pleasantly surprised to see this ad for CHANEL in my September issue of Elle Magazine. When I flipped the page, I was like, Wow, I'd TOTALLY wear that whole outfit! I actually thought the whole ensemble was styled together quite nicely. Seeing this ad made me want to actually check CHANEL out more. Maybe my image of CHANEL was ancient. Maybe CHANEL had evolved into a brand I might actually care about, and yes, even WEAR. Am I getting older, or is CHANEL targeting a younger market? I was intrigued. I would love to LOVE the fashion brand whose name I carry. Now, after seeing this ad, I think I might be on my way to having a brand new "go to" style choice. Because the CHANEL in that ad, is finally, CHANEL I like.
