      We really do! I love her style and all those famous quotes of her’s. She allowed women to be stylish and comfortable.

      That’s a great film. I’ve watched another one about her but I can’t remember what it’s called. Thank you for reading 🙂

    Thank you for this interesting post. I knew little about this fashion icon.
    Amazing that a woman so powerful and admired depended on men. It makes me wonder how many siuccessful women today, also need male approval or support. This ultimately, undermines women’s fight for equality. Just a tho]ught.

    Pleasure reading this post.

      Thank you for reading!! She lived a very interesting life. The man Capel who she loved, wouldn’t marry her, and he died about 9 years into their affair. They say he’s the reason for the two C’s in the Chanel logo – one representing him.
      I think she was determined to make a better life for herself and maybe the fear of not having money was always a worry for her.

    It sounds like she did what she had to in order to get where she wanted. I suppose, in those times, it was an impressive thing for a woman to do. I’ve always liked Chanel as a brand (amazing make up).
    A while back I read about her and WW2… whoa…

      I’m terrible at catchup! Finally back on a blogging schedule and it’s like I can never keep up with people. But THANK YOU! I think I’m a good writer, though very critical. So I’ll always take a compliment on it 😛 x
