Style Inspiration Series: Coco and Vera

In the next of my Style Inspiration series of posts I would like to introduce Cee of Coco and Vera.  I’ve been a fan of Cee’s blog for a while and an avid reader of her six months of living glamorously, the challenge she set herself for 2011.  If you’re wedded to denim, Blog Reader, this is a must read for you!

Cee’s blog is a wonderful combination of personal style and threads of thoughts and feelings – she also gives great shopping/eating/drink tips for her local area.

For this post I asked Cee to tell me a little about herself, for a glimpse into her tastes and passions:

Question:  Tell me something about your favourite place in the world and why you chose it…

Cee’s reply: I will always consider Paris my spiritual home. When I was growing up on the Canadian prairies, I used to lament how unfair it was that some girls got to be born in Paris and I had the rotten luck of being born in Manitoba. I love French fashion, and music, and food- particularly all of the wonderful pastries- but what I love most about Paris is the vision behind it. Napoleon set out to make Paris the most beautiful city in the world, and the stunning architecture, even in the poorest, most rundown areas, never ceases to astound me. The whole city is a work of art!

Question: If money were no object, what fashion item would you buy for your wardrobe?

Cee’s reply:  There are many things on my If money were no object wishlist, but number one is a Chanel 2.55 handbag- I would most likely choose classic black, but any colour would do.

Question: Whose style do you most admire, living or dead?

Cee’s reply: It’s hard to choose just one style icon, but my very first icon was Audrey Hepburn. I watched Roman Holiday with my grandma when I was thirteen and fell in love with her depiction of the graceful but totally inexperienced Princess Anne. I even had my hair cut like hers the next year! What I admire most about her is that even though she is known for a classic, elegant style, she could in fact wear any style – even a plaid shirt and white cut-offs- because what people remember about her isn’t so much the specific outfits she wore but the personality and grace with which she wore them.

I hope you all have time to check out Coco and Vera, Blog Reader.  Thank you to Cee for featuring as a Style Inspiration…
