How many cares one loses
when one decides
not to be something,
but to become someone.
–Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel
If a Delorean time machine appeared in my driveway, I would go back to the 1920’s in Paris, France. It would be interesting to see the House of Chanel in the beginning. I would really love to wear the clothes and hats when they were new. Chanel revolutionized fashion. If Coco Chanel wasn’t a designer, then we might still be wearing corsets. Corsets can be beautiful but also restrictive and uncomfortable.
It would be amazing to see Chanel design the first “Little Black Dress.” The House of Chanel is still in the same place. Chanel has survived the ups and downs of the fashion industry, which is not an easy task.
In any case, visiting Paris is on the bucketlist. I will have to settle for visiting the House of Chanel in the future.
