Welcome our friends to Time Warp Wives. We are delighted to have you over.
Don't you just love the scent of fall? There is no other season so aromatic like this one. Wouldn't it be nice to capture this scent in a bottle and wear it when you want to feel fall fresh?
And talking about scent, how many of you can describe Chanel No. 5 by Coco Channel? We found an actual description of this perfume, "The perfume tries to capture the scent of extreme freshness of the northern lakes under the midnight sun", isn't that just delightful?
Coco Chanel expressed herself what she wanted this perfume to be. "I want to give women an artificial perfume," said Chanel. "Yes, I really do mean artificial, like a dress, something that has been made. I don't want any rose or lily of the valley, I want a perfume that is a composition".
In 1923 Coco Chanel told Harper's Bazaar 'simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance'. Coco Chanel always kept the clothing she designed simple, comfortable, and revealing. Unlike most designers in Europe, she kept the woman inside the clothes at the center of her creations. "I gave women a sense of freedom; I gave them back their bodies: bodies that were drenched in sweat, due to fashion's finery, lace, corsets, underclothes, padding." She took what were considered poor fabrics like jersey and upgraded them. Chanel's style is popularly associated with the image of the 1920s flapper, a "new breed" of self-confident young women .
