Oh, the memories of one of the most beautiful experiences I've lived within this story called Style Brick Road. I still remember (through a blur though - since champagne was just about everything I ate that day) my first Chanel experience. It was the Espace Parfums space in Zagreb, which was opened almost 2 years ago. And still one of my favourite pieces on this blog is about that particular visit and unique Chanel parfums tasting we did there. Although most of the piece is in Croatian, do check it out here.
And now, 20 months (math!!) older, with 20 months of experience and with a completely new taste in perfumes, I still fanboyed entering the beautiful new space for Chanel in Zagreb - it's in the sole core of Zagreb, at the Main Ban Jelačić Square. Although that 'Coco spirit' already possessed me the last time, yesterday I had quite a powerful connection with this, now even more beautiful espace... Sorry for my French attempts, but it somehow slips into my Chanel lingo. PS. I got to meet a few of Croatian best beauty bloggers, few of the most extremely nice & likable girls I've met through blogging! :3
The power of Chanel cosmetics & parfums is that they are approachable to regular people yearning for luxury, and not exclusive to all those fabulous fashionistas mounted with Chanel clothes and jewelry. Let's be honest, I'm just another regular guy, with no million-dollar incomes - so those shiny little bottles really make the difference to me. And that's probably the reason why I connect so well with the concept of luxurious, haute couture cosmetics. You can wear your Breton stripes shirt with a navy-inspired blazer, a bouclé rose beret and a dash of Bois Des Iles or Allure, and feel like a Chanel guy. At least I can, and damn - it feels good.
I wore my vintage YSL blazer, H&M breton shirt & skinny jeans, Zara floral cap & scarf and Aldo shoes. With (of course) my favourite Daniel Wellington watch.
Merci à beautiful Virginie & my new friend, beauty blogger Jelena for taking my photos! :3
ps. I cancelled my ski trip due to bad weather, so I'm upset & sad at the same time, probably the only thing making me happy right now is this blog. :(
