Cream has to be one of my favorite colors. It is such an easy color to wear year round. I used to avoid cream and white in the winter, but now I will wear cream and white to lightening my winter outfits.
This Chanel bag is called 2005. It was rather futuristic when I got it years ago. To be honest, I love this bag but I hate this bag too. Cream wool is not exactly the easiest material for a bag. I used it (including this time) about 5 times. This is not savvy because cost per wear is rather high.
I fondly call my Chanel 2005 "The Butt" bag. Can you tell? It is supposed to be ergonomic. A gal can sleep on it as a pillow during long flights. I can't sleep on it because I am sure cream wool won't be very forgiving. But, it is the thought that counts right.
Speaking of Chanel, the lovely and talented Fifi from Fifi Flowers has given me 2 copies of The Quotations of Coco Chanel, one to read and one to share with a blog friend. Fifi is the talent behind all the lovely illustrations. Please do visit her site for more savvy art works and postcards.
I want to share a couple illustrations and quotes with everyone......
