Karl Lagerfeld Presents “Reincarnation” Chanel Film Starring Pharrell Williams

Thank you Chanel for  giving me reason to be excited about the fashion world this Monday morning!

Directed by Kark Lagerfeld, Chanel’s release of its trailer for the short film Reincarnation accompanied by the song “CC The World” – composed by Pharrell Williams and sung by Cara Delevinge – has taken the social media realm by storm this morning.

The short recounts  Coco Chanel’s inspiration for the now  iconic Chanel jacket – a moment while vacationing in Austria – the moment upon laying her eyes on the uniform of the elevator operator of the hotel she was staying at.

Reincarnation will accompany the Métiers d’Art collection in Salzburg next week.

Mark your calendar – the full film will debut online on December 1.

From special designer events to surprise marriage proposals, there’s never a dull moment at Robbins Brothers. Instead of keeping these things to themselves, they want to share all the dynamic happenings with you!

It’s true – I am not on the market for an engagement but hey, who says you can’t get married all over again? Especially if I get a cute little box with a BIG shiny something from Robbins Brothers! 

Well, with that being said, imagine my reaction when Robbins Brothers asked me if I would write about one of those sparkly somethings for them??!! Of course, ZERO hesitation!

Check out this beauty and you can view my blog post for them here at RobbinsBrothers.com

Lola’s #FridayFavorite: Reserve Supply Company

Yes, I am an occassional mall-goer; however, I prefer to spend my dollars at locally owned businesses.  After all, it’s these types of shops that you are more than likely to come across ‘one-of-a-kinds’.

I ran across Reserve Supply Company a little over a year and a half ago via Instagram when the owner graciously offered to donate a gift basket to my Lupus Awareness fundraiser event.  How awesome is that?

My first visit to the store was to purchase a pair of SB Janoski’s for my son who is a major sneakerhead. (This was before Janoski’s were released in major retail stores- what a shame). Thanks to those Janoski’s and my son, I discovered all the amazine products Reserve Supply has to offer. It has become my #1 favorite store to shop for the guys in my life.

So, if you have a guy in your life that appreciates quality clothing, footwear, and accessories, this store is a must!
