inspired by coco chanel

this past weekend, i discovered this wonderful photostream 
on flickr of fashion photos from 1920 through 1965. 

evelyn tripp. dovima. jean patchett. 
the photographers – john rawlings, horst, and louise dahl-wolfe. 
fashions by edith small, adrian, henri bendel, and dior. 

i went all the way through to the very last page. and it was worth it.

this portrait of coco inspired me to go searching for some exquisite beauties.

here is what i found ~

chanel gilt & gripoix ear clips at 1stdibs

a bracelet cum handbag embroidered by lesage – the haute-couture 
embroidery workshop that created beaded wonders for chanel 
and is now owned by the house of chanel.

christian lacroix necklace. with its cascading, brightly colored 
gemstones, it looks just like one she may have worn for this portrait.

calodema ribbei – THE jewel beetle

black and white diamond bracelet from bochic  

quilted patent leather from edelman leather inspired by a chanel handbag

the black satin ribbon in her hair is why i chose these anouska hempel 
lamps with their beribboned bases and coolie hat shades.
