Chanel 2005, Cream Outfit & Sweet March Giveaway

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......
The best color in the whole world, is the one that looks good on you. (TRUE!)
Personality begins where comparison ends. (TRUE!)
I don't like standard beauty - there is no beauty without strangeness. ~ Lagerfeld
With the Chanel book, I will also add a pair of purple Marc Jacob ear studs to the giveaway. I purchased several pairs as gifts and left this to giveaway to Savvy Mode readers last. As many of you know already, purple is one of my favorite colors.
How to Win:

1. Must be a Savvy Mode follower, as this is a special thank you for your support.
2. Tell me what is your favorite color for one entry.
3. Share this giveaway to receive 2 additional entries.
4. Open to readers worldwide.
5. Entry period is from March 8, 2010 to March 18, 2010.

Good luck and have a wonderful day!

xoxo, SG

  2. Oh wow, a bag you can carry AND sleep on? That's incredibly practical. Good for the girl on the go.
    Ooh I love the quotes from the Chanel book - all so true, especially the 'personality vs comparison' one.

  4. I adore cream items, but the risk of getting dirty sometimes makes me shy away from them!

    I've never been able to play favorites with colors. Right now, I'd probably say navy. But give me a month and it'll change!

    (And of course I'm a follower!)

  21. That bag is genius. It was so worth getting even if the fabric is "difficult." Something that makes that much of an aesthetic statement is always savvy.

  38. Speaking of purple...my new WP bloggy is in shades of purple & lavender!! Hope you like it darling ;-)

    I love this outfit, and cream is one of my fav colors as well, but I always feel like my winter white coats are so much work to keep clean...so, I buy a nice one & a lower priced one (to walk Midtown pups in - lol) so I can keep the designer one in good shape for special events!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love cream too and I'm loving these looks! haha "the butt bag"- yes I can see why! You look fabulous in that first picture of you!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow, what a wonderful giveaway! I love it how you both include a book and earrings - something to wear and get inspired by!

    Your Chanel bag is very futuristic indeed! The fact that they thought people would use it as a pillow... Hehe, I can imagine those being two category of owners - those who got it as a bag and only use it as a bag, and those who got it as a fancy pillow in the first place. And yay for wearing creams and whites in winter! I've been meaning to start doing so too but somehow keep reaching for the gloomier colors!..

    Well, I am a follower for a while now, and my favorite color... Hm, this one is no easy question, since I realize it tends to change depending on the life phaze I am in. I do believe in some connetcion between a person's mood, mentality, mindset etc and the color they choose/call a favorite, so it looks like I'm oen good example of such thing. Lately I've been into white, but not really wtih clothing though. More like interior and objects. All of my office supplies are always in orange, since it's a power color to me and also britend up the mood and helps stay ficused. I like single rich red or deep purple accents when it comes to beauty (lips, nails etc) and clothing detail... In clothes I've been really into the nudes lately and also soft dark blue hues. And when it come sto lingerie my favorite colors would have to be yellowish lime and torquoise! Go figure! I love lots of different things for different reaons.

  55. the bag is SO unique!
    I don't think I've ever seen the bag before...true that winter white is not forgiving and difficult to clean, etc. but it is also so classic and beautiful.
    I am a follower:) my favorite color changes all the time but currently I'm loving all shades of violet.

  56. Btw! I just HAVE TO share this with you :) Went to shop for new sunglasses today and after quite some time choosing and contemplating I happily left the store with two new pairs... But not until I got home did I realize something! In my comment on this post of yours, I said I liked red and purple color details in clothing and make up, right! Meaning you wouldn't really catch me wearing much of red or purple at once... And guess what? One of the pairs I got are Ray Bans rare prints edition, with my prit being white and RED on the inside, and the other pair is those moder style aviators in gentle PURPLE that fades to pale peach! Ha, do I love coinsidences like that! :)
