I saw a thread in Hermes and thought I would duplicate it for us Chanel girls... What other things do we love besides Chanel? Because we all have Chanel it common, it will be interesting to see what other similiar things we love, and how we differ, too...

My list of favorite things:

Art and architecture
Seven jeans (still haven't found a better brand no matter how many trendy new ones come out!)
Rare and early edition books
Chopard's playful jewelry, although I don't own any (yet!)
Diane von Furstenberg wrap dresses
The Magnetic Fields (the band) :jammin:

And you?
