Coco Chanel & The LBD (little black dress)

Recently, I went to my local library and rented the Coco Chanel movie and since then, she has inspired my life so much more.  I wanted to know more of her story other than just knowing about a few quotes she’s famous for. I wanted to know her struggles, her highs, and her lows and I learned about it all and more just by watching the Coco Chanel movie.
Prior to watching the movie, I was aware that more than any other piece of clothing, the little black dress as we’ve been told, the essential, the one that will take you practically anywhere. And perhaps more than any other designer, Coco Chanel was the one who made it ubiquitous. She did not invent the concept, of course, but according to the movie, the little black dress was not formally identified as the shape of the future until 1926, when American Vogue published a drawing of a Chanel design. It was an apparently simple yet elegant sheath, in black crêpe de Chine, with long, narrow sleeves, worn with a string of white pearls; and Vogue proved to be correct in the prediction that it would become a uniform.” (source)
I believe LBD are very stylish yet elegant and every lady should own at least one for any occasion.  If you need help with finding the perfect LBD for your body type, please do not hesitate to email me: I would love to help!
Here’s the link to the movie if you would like to brush up on your Coco Chanel history.
