Happy 129th Birthday, Mademoiselle Chanel!

Poise, elegance, simplicity = Mademoiselle Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel

On August 19, 1883, the world was graced with a woman who would revolutionize fashion with her incomparable elegance, simplistic vision, and endearing perseverance. Her name is Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel. From her humble beginnings as an orphan in Aubazine to her complete domination of the fashion industry, Mademoiselle Chanel was a multifaceted woman of unbelievable triumphs, survival, and success. Chanel is directly responsible as to why people wear comfortable jersey knits, costume jewelry, little black dresses, shoulder-bags, and the timeless Chanel style to this very day. As a devout admirer of both Chanel and her global brand, I'm quite proud and delighted to celebrate this day for such an incredible pioneer I've respected and loved for as long as I can remember. Even though she has come to pass, the Chanel legacy, along with her insatiable appetite for originality & innovation, is one that remains undeniably immortal.

Joyeux anniversaire, Mademoiselle Chanel :)
