Entries in Chanel (5)
If I draw them will they be mine? A few of my (perpetually) favorite designers are Preen, Chanel, and Erdem. In recent years, I've been particularly obsessed with ladylike, classic silhouettes and the contrast of black with brightly-colored, graphic prints. View photos of the real runway looks for Chanel Spring 2012 RTW, Erdem Pre-Fall 2012, and Preen Spring 2012 RTW here.
It's no secret that I am in love with Peter Philips. Each time the Global Creative Director of Makeup produces a new Chanel Beauty collection, I swoon more ardently than a teenage girl over Justin Bieber. (The proof lies in my AmEx bill and stacks of Chanel boxes on my dresser. More on this love affair later!)
Just in time to perk up your Friday doldrums, here is a fantastically-fun stop motion film produced by Mr. Philips and co:

The Chic Report just recently published a glorious photo of a new shade of Chanel nail lacquer available December 1st. For those of you who did not get your hands on Nouvelle Vague (like me!), you'll want to make sure you act fast on December 1st so you don't miss out. Check out the Chanel "Riva" nail lacquer, which the Chic Report describes as "pale blue."

We've been busy little squirrels this week storing up blog posts for the winter. While we await the downloading of our Wednesday & Thursday Portland Fashion Week photos (alas! we're not attending Friday's show), here's a brief interlude on an entirely unrelated subject.
For work today I attended an all-day educator conference. I couldn't help but check out how the teachers had styled themselves. My favorite fall trends on display were...
1. The Classic Chic Trench.
|Trovata Fatale Waxed Cotton Trench, $418 at www.parallelportland.com.|
2. The Utility Jacket.
|Vince Utility Jacket, $395 at www.shopbop.com.|
3. Leather Knee Boots. We love Frye.
|Frye Dorado Riding Boots (Dark Brown), $458 at www.shopbop.com.|
4. Wellies. A must for rainy Portland weather!
|Hunter Lady N Rainboot, $140 at www.parallelportland.com.|
5. Nerdy Thick-Framed Glasses.

6. Scarves, naturally. They're still going strong!
|Bobi Supreme Jersey Scarf (Violet), $24 at www.parallelportland.com.|
7. Moccasins. I'm still totally feeling this trend (and Pendleton fabrics---more on that later).
|Minnetonka Original Moccasins, $48 at www.urbanoutfitters.com.|
8. Quirky local jewelry. I love this necklace from Sword + Fern (we saw their installation at PFW Wednesday night).
