I love anything vintage, from photographs to posters and postcards, to fabrics, clothing, furniture and books. There is something about Europe, France in particular, that is synonymous with nostalgia, romance and history that is so appealing. Which brings me to the iconic Coco Chanel. If ever there was a woman who epitomized elegance, she is it. Thanks to her invention of 'little black dress' we all have that never fail number in our closet to save the day when we have 'nothing' to wear to a special occasion, and just a splash of Chanel No. 5 can make the difference between feeling dull to feeling fabulous.
