Surprising detail:  A strand of chain is always attached to Chanel jacket flaps to add weight and prevent from flutter.

AW10 Faux fur collection

Come and play, Julie said, and I went over to Chanel HQ with my sand toys and Lego box. That was how casual it was, so organic; and despite that I don’t have a single Chanel piece in my wardrobe and do not intend to until one suits my salary & wardrobe, I’m falling for the brand. Their ideals behind brand-press relationship emits a certain humility that I don’t see in smaller brands and agencies that can’t even be bothered to write a simple Dear Shini in their emails. Oh the faux fur yeti coat, I was all oh whats that and before I knew what was going on Julie slid it on me, I promise I didn’t beg to try it on. The faux fur was so smooth it was unreal, next thing we’ll know they’ll be planting Chanel fur onto poor skinned rabbits.

There’s nothing more satisfying than leaving the house early and following the friend around while she does her chores, whining that I’m hungry and going to faint on the busstop and finally hearing her say FINE WE’LL GO EAT, WOMAN. But I only live to bug you, Elface.

The Stockpot in SoHo is a perfect British equivalent of a diner with homey food and simple but good (for a lack of a better adjective) drinks. Definitely check it out when you’re in London, especially good when you’ve spent all your money in American Apparel and Urban Outfitters that also sorta exist in your own country (but of course it seems better in a foreign country) and all you have is a fiver left in your pocket.
