My birthday suit – Le Fanciulle

my-birthday-suit-le-fanciulleThis week’s fab birthday outfit is brought to you by the ladies from Le Fanciulle, aka Steph and Trish. Here’s a rundown from the lovely duo themselves about their chosen look…

As much as we love our basics, this is our imaginary party get-up so we thought, “you know what? We can wear what we damn well please!”; hence the neon leather, which is our piece de resistance! And with all good parties with us at the helm, there must be tea.  And snacks – always snacks.
xx Steph & Trish 🙂

motifCobalt blue with neon accents – yes please! And snacks? I love snacks! Interestingly, as we all belong to the Perth medico-sphere as well as the blogosphere (me a relative newcomer), we have somewhat orbited each others’ existence and only realised who each other were fairly recently! These sartorially-savvy beauties are steady faces on the Perth fashion scene and have a blog that I’m a huge fan of. To cap it off they have quite a number of achievements under their belts – namely, they were recent nominees for Betts Best Fashion Blogger of the Year 2013 and were also chosen to take part in the Perth Fashion Festival’s 30 Days of Restyle 2012. Phew! Busy bees!

Vintage Chanel…beyond the 2.55

I too am dreaming of owning my very own perfectly formed Chanel handbag one day. I came close to it on our holiday but choked when I couldn’t decide exactly what I wanted (so many amaaaazing choices – how to choose?) and was also plagued by my guilty conscience (i.e. my husband) reminding me how much I’d already splurged on other purchases.

I’m actually intrigued by all the non-classic forms of handbag Chanel have released over the years. Take this bright red creation for example…There’s something so appealing about a flippantly boyish yet luxe backpack, so many crazy and contradictory ideas combining to make one awesome product.

I also have a penchant for the weirdly shaped ones that make you do a double take because you initially think that it couldn’t be Chanel but the exquisitely quilted lambskin and of course that undeniable logo tell you another story. See? You didn’t think Chanel could be “funky”, did you?

And finally, to mix things up even more, why not check out something that’s not in lambskin? Fancy a picnic with your very own wicker Chanel bag? Or conjure up 1950s glam with a wee bakelite tortoise evening bag? Vintage Chanel is a whole other world to explore (don’t even get me started on their vintage earrings – I may not surface for days!) that I can get lost in for hours…Does anyone else have the same unhealthy obsession as me? If so, let me know in the comments below! Help me prove to my husband that I’m not the only one!
