Chanel Trolley…the San Francisco Treat

A few nights ago, after a hard day at work, I decompressed by visiting some of my favorite blogs. Whilst doing so, I came across a post that is a goodie and must be shared. The blog is called La Chanelphile. Yep, that’s right, the blog is about all things Chanel. If you’ve followed My …

Marilyn Monroe on Chanel N°5

I’m sure all of you Marilyn fans know that Marilyn famously shared that the only thing she wears to bed is Chanel N°5.

Elizabeth Taylor Collection at Christie’s

As a child in the 1980’s, I can remember adults talking about Elizabeth Taylor in a somewhat negative light. At the time, I only knew her by her “White Diamonds” look. With big hair and looking like she stepped off the set of Dynasty.   What I didn’t recognize at the time (which I’m ashamed …

Floating Boudoir

Look at these amazing boudoir photos…                                         Well, believe it or not, these are actually staterooms on a cruise. Yes, that’s right, no tacky carpet resembling a casino floor or geometric printed bedding (my stereotype of …

Pinterest Addiction

I once felt cross with my second grade teacher for telling my mother during a parent/teacher conference that I was a “daydreamer”. I didn’t care too much for her after her unsuccessful attempt in turning my “daydreaming” into a negative thing. Personally, I found daydreaming a delight. I could not understand the concept of not …

A Fieldtrip to Caron

I’m embarrassed to admit that three quarters of the year have passed since I originally promised this post. On a business trip to New York back in September, I extended one extra day over the weekend to do some shopping, eating, sightseeing and visiting with family. Yes, I know, ambitious plans for having only one …

Thinking Outside the Boudoir: Rebecca

Of all the movie homes that I’ve shown on My Little Boudoir, this one has a boudoir that may just top them all! The home is called Manderlay and the movie is Rebecca, starring Joan Fontaine and Laurence Olivier. I read the book (by Daphne du Maurier) first, and then watched the movie. I loved …

The Danger of a Single Story

Much of the content that you see on My Little Boudoir is delightful on the eyes and may be inspirational aesthetically, but it is not always truly thought provoking (nor is it always intended to be). However, no woman who sits primping in her boudoir all day and fussing about her appearance is truly beautiful …

Couture Cotton

Many of us dream of experiencing the luxury of Chanel couture, however the fact is, it is economically unattainable for most. So, for many women lounging in their boudoirs gazing starry eyed at their September issue of Vogue magazine, this dream will never come to fruition. However, there are may ways that the average woman …

Win a Trip to Paris!

For some reason lately I have  been majorly obsessed with going on holiday to Paris. I’ve been twice before, but about ten years have passed since my last trip (that was the trip when I was first introduced to Sephora). Learning that a visit to Coco Chanel’s apartment was within reach is what really sent …
