Chanel – Designer vs. My Way

On this, the last day of An Affair to Remember Month, it seems only appropriate to have a face off against one of my favourite designer houses. So here it is, Chanel – Designer vs. My Way!

Now you know I love LOVE Chanel, wear Chanel perfumes, have a loved Chanel scarf, and plan to spoil myself with a Chanel handbag later in the year. However, I am neither stick thin or crazy rich so my love and admiration for Chanel stops there. And honestly, I would be really naive to think that anything I own could compare to Chanel clothing…BUT…I do have one look, that you may recall has a bit of a Chanel inspiration.

Today, I thought it would be fun to compare an amazing Chanel ensemble in the same colour palette as my Chanel-inspired outfit. And since I have given a bit of attention to pink, gray, black and white, that is where we are returning!

Not Quite Chanel: Yeah. I know. Not quite. but the skirt is similar enough that it inspired me to feel like I was wearing Chanel! And hey, most of the time you just have to fake it till you make it! Or at least have enough confidence in what you are wearing that everyone else thinks it is far more than it is!

That’s it for February and our month of An Affair to Remember. March is going to be all about Transitions and much to my shock, there may even be a little green thrown in there.

What do you think of my face-off, Chanel – Designer vs. My Way? Way off or near enough?
