Delorean in your driveway: Where would you go?

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.

“Just a small town girl – living in a lonely world.” Concert tickets are practically essential. Musicals are the key to life. I like movies, music,books, and corny jokes.
