Shorts and Swallows

I found these cute shorts at my local Savers last week and had to scoop them – and my birthday gift to myself, this lovely bird pin from Aldo, also arrived in the mail! So yeah, I’m a pretty happy camper today.







Also, I’ve just got to say that this week I am totally crushing on the Chanel pre-fall 2011 collection. The Byzantine themed collection reminds me of the luxury, boldness, and power of Empresses Theodora and Zoe. I can’t get enough of it.

Cute outfit. Love the basic color of the shorts, it makes it so much easier to mix with other things, love how the stand out from the black. Smart choice.
That pin is soooo cute, love it.
Thanks for sharing those Chanel pictures, I adore their campaign pictures, there is no end to their good taste and creativity.

This is such an attracting theme and post. One of my favourite periods, the Byzantine Era, & especially the exquisite Empress Theodora.. Your Aldo pin is lovely!

You look so elegant and wealthy. You definitely have a cool east coast vibe about you, which I envy. ;)

And omg yes this Chanel collection is PERFECTION.

Those Chanel clothes are uber dramatic and just lovely in a classic, true-chanel type way. Timely post...just checked out a DVD from the library about the life of Coco...epps! So excited to watch it!

Love your shorts, my dear!

Love the shorts!

I am currently reading a book on Chanel #5, which led to a recent obsession over Chanel fashion throughout the years. Now, though I don't think her particular style is something I would wear, this new collection really caught my eye. And it doesn't hurt that it's Byzantine-inspired!
