You're not in Kansas anymore…

Coco Chanel

Tuesday is Designer Day here at Vili Flik. That means that every Tuesday we will focus on a designer whose clothes we love and adore. And who more fitting for our very first Designer Day than the Queen of Fashion, Her Majesty Coco Chanel?

Coco Chanel was a French fashion designer and founder of Chanel. The style is often simple as the designer herself claimed that “simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” Chanel’s two or three piece suit has been a modern and elegant look since the 1920s and still remains so today.


 The little black dress is another thing we have Chanel to thank for. This signature piece is a must have in every girls wardrobe, and rightly so, as there are few items more easy to dress up or down than a little black dress.


Chanel liberated women in the way of clothing, steering away from corsets to more comfortable clothes, and making jersey a new fashion fabric. Can you imagine life without jersey? You might think that a bimbo comment, but seriously, if you think about it, I bet a lot of your clothes are made of some sort of jersey fabric, that pre-Chanel were only used for making underwear. I told you she was awesome.


Chanel still ranks as one of the world’s most elegant and prestigious brands in the fashion business, with the genius Karl Lagerfeld on the throne.


If you want to admire more glorious pictures of Chanel clothing, I strongly advise you to visit

Love, Hanna

    Hi, I’m Peggy.

    I read on your about page that you have a personal oracle named the Ancient Ninja. And I was wondering if I could maybe ask him/her a question?

    Being that it is fall here in Kansas (I actually still am in Kansas, you see) I have noticed something strange. The leaves on the trees are changing color from green to red and yellow. And many of the trees seem to have gone kind of half and half, meaning that they turn yellow or whatever on one side and remain green on the other for much longer.

    Dear Ancient Ninja – why is this? Why does not the leaves on the same tree change color around the same time? And how can they stay so systematically half and half? The question torments me every waking hour, please answer me.

    Love, Peggy.
