Pink Chanel Logo Dress

Pink and Chanel should be my favorite fashion elements but not so much with this dress. Years ago on a trip to New York, while walking about mid-town a sudden down pour of rain “forced” me to take refuge in a Chanel Boutique, just my luck. Nice people at Chanel dried me off, offered a cup of hot tea and showed me the collection. What was I thinking but I bought a dress I normally would have avoided, an obnoxious logo piece. Luckily, I did not purchase the match jacket. Looking at all the hot pinks around now, I took out the dress and thought perhaps I could wear it again?? I will just put something on top to cut down the number of interlocking CC. I wonder if I will be blacklisted by Chanel if I chop the dress into a top and a skirt! So, savvy lovely gals, are logos savvy for you or not so much?

  3. The photo is too dark on my computer to really see the logos, but the sillhouette of it is very nice on you!

  4. Hmmm... I'm not a fan of logos, that's why I don't like LV bags, but this dress looks nice on you.

    Thank you for the support about my mother.

  5. Thanks for the comment! I think the dress would look fabulous with a black leather bomber, bare legs and ballet pumps!

  8. Logos are not savvy for me anymore; I went through a bit of a phase in which I bought Gucci and Fendi bags with monograms all over, but I have since sold them on ebay and moved on to less "vocal" fashion . . .

  11. cute, but I would pair it with a sweater or cardigan so only the bottom part of the dress shows. It is a bit too much of a logo overload otherwise.

  12. That dress is so fun--hardly what one would expect of Chanel.

  13. Loving the Chanel lately myself!
    Although... I'm not wild about BOLD logos... subtle logos are better to moi!

  14. thanks for all the support. I really don't know what I am going to do with the dress yet. I adore the silhouette but not the overall logo. I wished I got the black one instead now. : ( I will just have to put a topper over the dress. Have a savvy day everyone!

  15. I think you look cute! but agree with whoever said a bomber jacket would do the trick. I tend to think 'fake' when I see an abundance of logos. But that does apply more to hangbags. Def keep the dress and don't chop it up!
