french feather + puffed pompadour + aircraft carrier + fifties stewardess + sixties collar + twenties flapper silhouette + 150 shades of blue + futuristic sleekness = chanel spring 2012 haute couture.
i honestly have not been this excited watching a runway show via the spindly web since marc jacobs fall 2012 rtw. i can die happy once i roll on a pair of those jeweled tights...with silk satin gloves, of course.
had an overwhelmingly beautiful coffee discussion with my previous english teacher today on classic films, europe, vespas, remington steele (which i must see), literature, and rotary-dial telephones. days like this are seldom appreciated or remembered in one's life, but i have carefully stowed away these precious moments under safe-keeping. let's hope that safe is bullet and water-proof.
