Coco avant Chanel

After waking up this morning I went downstairs for breakfast. While walking downstairs I saw the mail laying on a table. This time the mail caught my attention; Yes! the new June edition of the glamour was laying on top of everything! I wanted to read it immediately, because on the cover was written: COCO AVANT CHANEL. I knew what that meant, I knew that that is the new film about Coco Chanel and I knew I wanted to see it! I deceided to not open the plastic foil of the magazine and went upstairs to study for my finals. After a while I took a break and started to read the magazine. Turning around the cover I noticed a little black envelope with Chanel Paris written on it. Inside the envelope there was a white card and by opening this card a fan opened. This envelope was a sample of Eau Première by Chanel and believe me, the smell is lovely.

The one thing I really was curious about was the page about the film. After reading everything I was sure I wanted to see the film.
A reason why I'm so excited about this all is because of Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel herself, she always was a mysterious woman to me and so I deceided to read her biography.

While reading her biography a year ago, her life and the way she was inspired me to let everything happen how it should happen but at the same time do I what I really want to do, be whatever I want to be and say and to think whatever I wanted, but all of the previous only works well by having respect for other people. Nobody should be afraid of taking riscs, every mistake teaches to do better next time.

From a little girl living in a orphanage to the elegant and sophisticated woman who invented the 'cardigan jacket' for women and 'le petit robe noir' - the little black dress-. The woman who died 38 years ago but still lives through everydays fashion.
