Dressing Area

My makeup was taking over the vanity in our bathing area, so I decided to move all my Chanel cosmetics, fragrances, and accessories out to the boudoir.  I really love it because I also have all my Chanel books and other loot all together in one area.  The vanity table is really a better place to apply my makeup because of the long window behind it which provides a lot of natural light.  The tabletop is quite crowded, but holds all my pretties and has drawers to store more of my Chanel goodies.  I'm such a hoarder with makeup; when I find a certain color of lipstick, I will buy several tubes so I won't run out.

On the wall to the left of the table, I have a style board that holds my special Chanel cards and flower pins.

I found this cute dress form at HomeGoods and decorated her with some of my Chanel goodies. Of course I named her... "Mademoiselle."

Flower pins and pearls...

Black and gold chain belt...

Small size classic flap bag with gold hardware...

I've also decided to start taking my OOTD photos somewhere else beside the bathing area.  I found this mirror at Kirkland's and it goes well with the colors in my room.


I hope y'all have enjoyed the tour of my new dressing area.  Thank you for visiting with me today!

What a sweet dressing table! The dress form is so cute the way you have her styled. My dressing table was purchased at auction when I was expecting my oldest child. It will, in time, be passed on to her daughter.

Are Chanel cosmetics worth the price?

Miss Janice said...

Farrah,
Absolutely! I have been wearing Chanel cosmetics for about 15 years. For me, I love the feel and the scents of all the Chanel products.

Love your new dressing area....so pretty! I also wear Chanel cosmetics and love them as well as their skincare products. I dream of having a Chanel bag...gotta get the kids through college first and then I will have a little more in the budget for my wardrobe and accessories!

What do you think of St. John knits? You have GREAT taste!

Miss Janice said...

Suburban Charm,
I love St. John Knits and have a couple of their suits. I think St. John is very stylish if you choose the right style. Here's hoping you get your Chanel bag one day!

Love it! I used to have a dress form that I called 'Elizabeth Taylor'. She went bye-bye in the Estate Sale as I wasn't sure if I'd have room for her in the new townhouse. But I do and now I miss her. Off to Homegoods I go.

Hello Darling,
LoVe the dressing table in the boudoir. I used to have my Grandmas' growing up but alas...my niece has it and I am SURE she doesn't appreciate it. But I digress... I want to know where you got the table...it has given me ideas for when I feel better!
