The great Mademoiselle Chanel spanned several eras of changing fashion. Her most notable signatures are close fitting cloche style hats, halters, separates, jerseys and strands of many different pearl necklaces all worn at once. Until her retirement in 1939, she was the probably the world's most influential designer. She made a comeback in the 1950s ushering in her most enduring contribution to fashion, the Chanel suit still popular today.
 I see the Chanel bride of today much like Mademoiselle herself. Classy and fabulous, sophisticated and quirky. Above all stylish. The bride above is in separates: a Chantilly lace halter paired up with a long shantung skirt with a sweep train. All her accessories are inspired by Chanel.
Hat, headpiece/veil and separates available through Amy-Jo Tatum Bride. 415.258.8204.

I think that a pearl necklace is always a nice choice - whether you are going for modern, chic or Chanel-inspired look. But I am not so sure about those earrings though. Maybe it is just me, but I think those are just a little bit too much.

OMG the hats. So lovely and timeless. My momma wore won on her wedding day, too.

Wow this Chanel-inspired bridal look is stunning. I grew up attending the bland boring generic wedding ceremonies where the dress was always big, poofy and tacky.

I want to attend a wedding where the bride is inspired by retro glam! Your bridal looks throughout your blog really take my breath away. :)

No one can adore hats as much as I do, but in my opinion they are not definitely for wedings!

Anyway, I really adore Coco Chanel and all of her legacy! :-)
