Happy Birthday, Coco Chanel*

"Fashion fades, only style remains the same..."
Coco Chanel, 19 August 1883 – 10 January 1971
*and Happy Birthday to my sister, Bird!


  1. too bad the movie wasn't released today on her birthday here in the states! i'm dying to see it!

  2. I am going to start perusing the vintage and resale shops for a Chanel, it may be a challenge!

  3. It's Ogden Nash's birthday too! I was sure you'd do a special post for him!

  4. ILLG... what with Bill Clinton, my sister and Coco Chanel, I totally missed Ogden.

    Here's a poem:
    The Abominable Snowman
    by Ogden Nash

    I’ve never seen an abominable snowman,
    I’m hoping not to see one,
    I’m also hoping, if I do,
    That it will be a wee one.

  5. I just posted on her this morning and had no idea it is her birthday. I will link this.

  6. Thanks, Laura! People keep telling me of additional birthdays today! Tipper Gore, too!

  7. my mother would have been 80 today!

  8. Thanks for everything, Meg!

  9. Hi Meg! Yesterday was my husband's b'day too and I almost wrote a post about the things he and Coco Chanel have in common (tongue-in-cheek of course!) but thought better of it and stopped midway!!
