I love scrolling through blogrolls and coming across a great blog that I probably would not have found otherwise. Once a month I will be updating the blogroll, so please take a peek whenever you have a chance. These are some wonderful blogs and I don't want any of you to miss out!

Now on to the fun part! I have a brand new DVD of the movie "Coco Avant Chanel" starring the always lovely Audrey Tatou, to give away to one of you lucky readers out there.
How do I enter the giveaway you ask?

"A little girl who is sent with her sister to an orphanage in the heart of France, who waits in vain every Sunday for her father to come for her.....

A cabaret performer with a weak voice who sings to an audience of drunken soldiers.....

A humble seamstress, who stitches hems at the back of a provincial tailor's shop.....

A young, skinny courtesan, to whom protector Etienne Balsan offers a safe haven, amongst the idle and decadent.....

A woman in love who knows she will never be anyone’s wife, refusing marriage even to Boy Capel, the man who returned her love......

A rebel who finds the conventions of her time oppressive, and instead dresses in her lovers' clothes.....

This is the story of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, who begins her life as a headstrong orphan, and through an extraordinary journey becomes the legendary couturier who embodied the modern woman and became a timeless symbol of success, freedom and style."
from the official movie site

I am not embarrassed to proclaim that I am a fan of Chanel. more for her personality than her clothes. I can never seem to find a frock in my size.

Great giveaway (too bad I rushed out and bought the film the day it was released on DVD). :)

What a coincidence! I just added this movie to my wishlist at Amazon.com! I've been dying to see it and drooling over those beautiful clothes.

This is one film I didn't get a chance to experience in the theater and I'm dying to see it. Did you happen to see the Chanel ads featuring Audrey Tatou? They are fantastic.

And I agree about blogrolls. You've reminded me that I desperately need to update mine!

Ms. Tatou would probably look elegant in anything, but this is the ultimate.
