Chanel’s Fall Campaign – Freja the Feline

French luxury house Chanel unveiled their new ad campaign for fall featuring Freja Beha Erichsen. This is the fifth consecutive season for Erichsen as Chanel’s poster girl, and there’s no denying that this campaign is a departure from their sometimes cold and earnest campaigns. I personally don’t care for the look itself, I also don’t understand the  message being propagated by this shoot.

This was my favourite look from the collection.  I loved the fringed texture of the skirt, only made more dramatic with the shimmer. It…

Cross-Border Shopping Finds

Yesterday, I went cross-border shopping to pick up unique pieces and take advantage of the amazing exchange rate.  While the shelves were emptier and gearing up for back to school- can you believe it? I still managed to pick up a few unique pieces and added to my shoe collection. These leather wedge shoes are called “Cleo” MRKT from DSW.…
