not being a fashionista

(a stint as an assistant to a fashion designer soured me on that…but i do love project runway) 

i didn’t know a darn thing about ms. chanel (except that she was french)… 


so, last night i got sucked into the vortex that is the

lifetime-television-for-women-movie (quelle horreur!)

about the (mostly) early life of coco chanel


i do love a rags-to-riches-feisty-gal story!


it was no “la vie en rose”  & it sure did seem like they skimmed over 

delving more into important stuff

(like uh…how she was one of the most influential fashion designers ever!?) 

in order to show us her sob-inducing love-life (men!)…


speaking of men! très holy moly…

this guy:  french actor olivier sitruk

played one of coco’s more important mens:  boyd capel…oo~la~la

*according to IMDb we have the same birthday ~ december 25! 

 i better start working on those french lessons so i can stalk him!

kidding olivier!…(call me)
