Dubai or not to buy? Chanel's Cruise Collection 2014

When I first brought 'I dream of Coco...' to life, it was a way to express my love of all things fashion, and high-end fashion in particular.  But alas as I am not a millionaire, hence the 'dream' part of the title, my blog has somewhat taken more of a lifestyle direction as I try to live my life in true Carrie Bradshaw fashion (think shoes not sex!) on a budget, and always want to share these experiences with you.  However, I am always particularly excited to put together a fashion post, so here is my latest one, ta-dah...I hope you enjoy it!

I had to of course talk about the latest Chanel show in Dubai (I realise I'm a little late in doing so!) because as always it was amazing!  Every Chanel presentation I have ever watched has always left me gobsmacked, and the latest one was no exception.  If you haven't seen the video, please watch it here! I won't chat about it too much, but I'll mention my top 5 looks from the show.


 Look 82

I'm not a huge fan of the trousers, but I love the idea and the detailing of the Dubai skyline across the bottom of the top.  This Look was eye-catching on the catwalk, simply beautiful!



Look 2

I loved the jacket from this Look, traditionally Chanel with a modern twist.  I also love the makeup, great for the runway!



Look 18

First off...I really don't understand the pants, but I love the twinset! Such intricate detailing, so delicate and pretty, definitely more 'ready-to-wear' than some of the other looks.


Look 30

Again, it's the jacket that drew me in here, I'm a sucker for a beautifully cut jacket, and I absolutely adore the colours.  I'm also a huge fan of all of the hair and make-up from the show...the hair accessories are unusual but really stand out.  The whole show felt to me like it had a whole 70s type theme running through it, and it really worked.


 Look 70

This look I chose purely because of the fine jewellery, the pin is stunning! Not so sure about the light up shoes...LA Gear anyone?

I could go on...there were many other pieces that really stood out to me from this show, and I always love the accessories...remember how much I raved about the perfume bottle clutch? (I've since bagged a pretty convincing replica, seeing as I haven't got a small fortune to spare for a real one!) However, I don't think I'll be hunting down one of these in a hurry...

Karl is a visionary...but for me this might be one step too far!

What did you think of the show? Which were your favourite Looks?
