Best post title ever:)
Love the first minidress, its gorgeous!

Anika said...

Ahhh, there's nothing quite like fab quilting. And I have to admit that I've never been a fan of crazy quilting (other than on Chanel 2.55s of course :), but have now rethought that!

Erika said...

What a perfect title for a post. I'm obsessed with the Marc Jacobs Beat Bag! And, of course...Balmain. Be still my heart! :)

GlamDistrict said...

Hi there! I am planing to get me a dress in H&M very similar to this pieces you are showing. Promise to show you the picture if I finally get it.

Chere Carrie,

I just have to tell you that the headline for todays post provided me with my first belly laugh of the week. I cannot believe I lived to be ?? years old without having heard that one before. Pure overlooked genius. And wonderful therapy for me.

Thank you for the fine writing, and as always, the beautiful looks.

xoxo - P

Imogen said...

I like the bags and shoes and I am pleasantly surprised by how good quilting looks on some of the clothes like that first dress. Thanks for sharing.

Pau said...

Balmain !!!
And Marc Jacobs handbags ;)

Little Rus said...

Love this. So chic. The skirts can be dangerous thought as they can increasingly highlight the size of a not-so-perfect bottom. :)

Sher said...

I am guilty too, I love quilting especially on Chanel bags of course:)

Well quilting in clothes haven't been my fav, but you show some great pieces that I didn't mind having.

Very cool post! It's funny how quilting can be associated with everything from sports to Chanel. To anyone fashiony, it's hard to disassociate quilting from Chanel, but it's actually a very versatile and downright sexy pattern!

I'm debating getting a Chanel bag, and I know you said the point of this post wasn't them haha! BUT BUT it's been on my mind...do you think the chain one will ever go out of style? Such an investment...
