I saw the most wonderful movie this weekend. The scenes were so beautiful. Coco Channel used black and white as her signature colors. There is a key at the beginning of the movie that tells you why. I wear black and white the most when I want to look smart and think it is so elegant.
The gorgeous scenes have been dancing through my head. So it inspired me to rework a couple of my dolls. Their clothing touches my heart deeply. I were lace as much as I can as well. Antique lace is so very romantic.
She is inspired by the movie about Coco Channel. The scenes from the early 1900's had beautiful clothing. Black and White where signature colors for Coco as well as pearls.
She started her clothing company by making hats so her straw hat is befitting this little Coco doll.
Here shawl is antique lace. And the pearl on her neck is from my mothers button box and came off a elegant 1960's dress that would have been from the height of Coco' 60's Classic Jacket period.
