The Fashion Feed: Coco Before Chanel Special


With the release of Coco Before Chanel at cinemas nationwide celebs are going crazy for the fabulously understated look that Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel championed so much in her designs. Of course not all of us are on a Girls Aloud pay packet so I've hunted down some cheaper versions of the real thing so you can celebrate the release of Coco Before Chanel in style! My first cheaper than cheap top pick has to be this lovely black quilted chain bag from Asda. It only costs £5 and will add a touch of Chanel class to any outfit. I think this bag would work particularly well as an evening bag as it would give a nice edge to your LBD.


Following in the quilted footsteps of the Asda handbag are these gorgeous pink contrast detail court shoes from Asos. Originally these little beauties would have set you back £74.00 but now you can pick them up for £33.00 and look as cute as Coco herself.


Without a doubt however my favourite Chanel-esque budget buy has to be this gorgeous black bowler hat which literally screams chic. Perfect for the coming autumn/winter season this hat will go beautifully with black dresses and suits to boot. It will only cost you £22.00 from Topshop so there's absolutely no excuse for being yellow-bellied about this rather bold fashion move.

I love the Chanel inspired pink quilted bootie! I own a real Chanel bag and have to say that it's a classic. Love it!

BTW, doll. Do you think you can update my URL on your blogroll? I'm at http://www.dreamsequins.com now! And I got a facelift ;)

Always on the latest trend in the fashion industry is my passion. I have been into the industry for quiet sometime, but this is just the first time I got the feeling of being outmoded after reading your post. Chanel is an international fashion brand known for its unique and authentic style.
