Wishlist: Chanel This, Chanel That

Apart from the 2.55 in classic black caviar leather, most Chanel pieces that I find myself coveting are the borderline crazy ones. Case in point, when The Coveteur posted their Jen Brill profile today, I was once again reminded that the Matryoshka bag is still not in my closet, nor do I own a pair of lightbulb-heel stilettos – both objects that I don’t necessarily need…but oh-so-want! Unfortunately, due to the fact that these items were super exclusive to begin with (not to mention unaffordable), chances of me ever adding these pieces to my wardrobe are slim to none, unless I rob Jen Brill that is (where does she live again?). So the moral of the story is – if you can’t afford the real deal, DIY!  

And now if you’ll excuse me, I have some lightbulbs to glue to my shoes.

One more SHOT after the jump!

What I Wore: LG Innovators’ Ball

Did you see that The Coveteur post on Suzanne Rogers’ closet? I mean, Carrie’s closet looks like a homeless man’s smelly refrigerator box home compared to Suzanne’s Marie Antoinette-esque closet grandeur and selection. And compared to mine? Well, I won’t even go there.

Case in point, my dress here, that I wore to the LG Innovators’ Ball last week – whooping $25 at Forever 21! Booyah! Eat your heart out, Suzanne Rogers. Eat. Your. Heart. Out.

But in all seriousness, y’all, I am pretty happy with the way my cheapie dress looks here…so long and flowy (and super comfy), and as an added bonus I will also be able to pay my rent, so there’s that.

I Wore: Dress – Forever21; Belt, Ring – H&M; Shoes – BCBG Max Azria; Bracelet – The Bay
