Blake Lively for Chanel

Ever since the rumour mill started, Blake Lively's Chanel campaign for the Mademoiselle handbag has been eagerly anticipated, and Kaiser Karl/ Saint Karl does not disappoint. Taken in the Pace Vendome Chanel HQ, the pictures are divine and capture the sexyness of Blake Lively while remaining true to Chanel's classiness.
At first I was unsure of Blake being appointed as the new Chanel "it girl" but now I've seen the pictures, I've changed my mind. Ever since the start of her Gossip Girl days, Blake style status has soared and she's definietly become a credible style icon. And now with this campaign I'm definitely expecting some big style moments from her this year.

A Little Bit of Feather

"Love is not love when it alterations finds...." a quote from my favourite, well only reasonably liked, Shakespeare Sonnet 116, and links so well to my love of feathers.
They are an "ever-fixed mark" in my wardrobe

"looks on tempests and is never shaken" - i.e. somehow mine manage to survive the dreaded il pleut

 "it is the star to every wandering bark" - a constant silver lining

"love alters not with his brief hours and weeks" - always return to my beloved feather skirt

"but bears it out even to the edge of doom" - will come with me to the fiery depths of hell

"If this be error and upon me proved, I never writ, nor no man ever loved"
