Spring 2010 Trend – Chanel Temporary Tattoos

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 17 - 2010

Nothing screams “I got a tattoo in the late 90s” like a tattooed arm or ankle band.

Chanel’s latest must-have accessory was recently showcased on the Paris runway and it’s just as well the 90s are back in fashion, ‘cos check these babies out!

“Les Trompe L’œil de Chanel”, a set of 55 individual tattoos priced at an eye-watering £49 will be available on the Selfridges Chanel counter from 1st March.

I think I’ll stick to the ones you get free with bubblegum… or if I really must indulge, there must be 101 purse-friendly alternatives out there.

What say you? Fabulousness or Folly?

    They’re nice and all but you have to be like a size 0 to make them look good on you. I have massive thighs so I’d have the mix about 10 together just to get them to go around my thigh once.

  7. I’m not really loving these although I’m always changing my mind so who knows what I might think next week. The images released so far all look a bit chunky for my liking but I’d be interested in seeing if there’s any smaller designs in the range.

    And also at those prices – you could get henna or get an artistic friend and give her your Blacktrack and a 209?!

    And also (again)… when Cheryl Cole shows off her tattoo on her thigh we call it chavvy… but when its Chanel… it’s fabulous?

    Rant over.

    Nah-tastic.

    Sure – the tattoos on the skinny twiggy wrists and arms of these models look ok, but on your average, a little bit hairy, a little bit chubby female (I’m describing myself by the way) – NO.

    Adults and tattoo transfers = Lose.

    Kids and tattoo transfers from bubblegum packets = Win.
