Pearl overboard?


Coco Chanel

Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty. ~ Coco Chanel

Wonderful Wednesday everyone!

I’m joining Jill and Adrienne for “How I Wear My: Chanel-inspired Look.”  

Here’s a quick Chanel-wanna be outfit I put together for Jill yesterday evening.

Jacket: Kiok by Kiok Kang    Skirt: BCBGMaxAzria     Shoes: Kate Spade

Bag & Shades: Chanel


Here’s  a funny joke I received from daughter….

A Florida senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he pushed it to 80 mph, enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.

“Amazing,” he thought as he flew down I-95, pushing the pedal even more.

Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a Florida State Trooper, blue lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110, then 120. Suddenly he thought, “What am I doing? I’m too old for this!” and pulled over to await the trooper’s arrival.

 Pulling in behind him, the trooper got out of his vehicle and walked up to the Corvette. He looked at his watch, then said, “Sir, my shift ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a new reason for speeding — a reason I’ve never before heard — I’ll let you go.”

 The old gentleman paused then said: “Three years ago, my wife ran off with a Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back.

 “Have a good day, Sir,” replied the trooper.

Haha!  I’m slow when it come to jokes, but I got this one!! 😀

Take care!

  1. Oh, I missed this one!!! Coco used to say, “You can be overdressed, but you can never be too elegant.” You look amazing, there is nothing “wanna be” about this outfit! Chanel on the eyes and hanging on the arm is a lot of CHANEL! xo!

  2. i have been out of town for a week, but i must have missed the memo that pearls are on the way back in!!
    you are the 3rd blogger that has worn them this week and i have 2 friends that were blinged out in pearls at a b’day breakfast on friday.
    back in the 80’s i never ever took my pearls off!!!
    love this look, it is just so classic and fabulous

  3. Coco….I mean Jeannie, you are looking very French! The outfit is wonderful – I love all the little details. The joke is hilarious, I’m going to modify it so I can use myself someday….

    Have fabulous weekend!!


  4. This look is right up my street – you probably remember how much I LOVE LOVE LOVE pearls.

    The truth is that if I wasn’t a fashion blogger and didn’t need to reinvent myself every now and again I would forever wear the style that you posted here. It’s so classic, so feminine. You have NO idea how much I am in awe with this style post! Love the BCBG skirt, the amazing Chanel accessories.

    Btw, I have just started reading a bio on that woman, clever girl, she was!

    • Edita, I do remember how much you love pearls!
      You can never go wrong with timeless classic…just not too practical sometimes.
      I think you were born about 70 years too late! 😉

  5. Jeannie, you look so good in your Chanel-inspired outfit! Thank you so much for joining us this month. This has been one of my favorite ‘How I Wear My’ posts, I love everyone’s interpretations of the Chanel look! XO, Jill

  6. You are so darned cute with your jokes!

    Thank you for participating in HIWM this month. I think Coco Chanel herself would approve of your look…classic black and white, pearls and I think you’re the only participant who sported a Chanel bag and glasses!

    Thank you again!
    xo, A

  7. Adore the outfit and the shoes … I saw a pair similar on a sale here earlier this month but they did not have my size. I need to replace my snakeskin lookalike shoes.

    Thanks for the joke, it was brilliant … I sent it to my email list :0)

    • Thanks Sara!
      I would be very sad if I couldn’t wear heels…
      Glad it made you laugh. I like simple jokes, too! I just don’t get the other kind…you know…guess I’m just dense.

  8. Funny joke! Sounds like something my hubby would say! Pearls are the best!!!! Every lady should own a few strands. Ummm, you do look good, guess I’ll go buy that jacket I’ve had my eye on of late. Love that Chanel style!

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I appreciate it very much!
