The Chanel jacket is one of those things I always thought about as a (distant) future purchase. I was not expecting to buy it during our trip to Paris but we had no luck at FSH (surprise surprise) and the other items on my wish list were all sold out. I decided to try some jackets and this happened.
I mean, look at it! The details are glorious. I also like the colour which works with my boring work clothes and could be dressed down as well.
Here’s a street style picture of the jacket. I love this jacket draped over one’s shoulders look but does it even work in real life? How do people do things or reach for stuff without the jacket slipping off?
Thanks for dropping by!
Chanel accessories can be so pricy for costume jewellery but I get a lot of wear out of my Chanel brooches which helps reduce the cost-per-wear of these brooches I added a few months back (but only managed to take pictures of recently).
I also added these slingbacks. I only managed to pick them up at the third Chanel boutique (Avenue Montaigne) I visited. For some reason, everyone and their mother was buying these slingbacks in Paris.
Would have preferred a colourway with some contrast (like the beige and black ones) but I would really wear the black ones more. Sizewise, they fit true. I am a 37.5 in Chanel ballerinas and took the same size for these.
See Part 1 here. I was on my lunch break and thought I’ll just pop by Chanel to look at the sale items.
I tried this top with the matching skirt and thought it was such a cute outfit. I like how it can be worn together as a set or with other pieces which makes it a lot more versatile. The skirt also has pockets which I also love so I bought the top and the matching skirt (sorry bank account).
Here are some pictures of the top and the skirt from the past weekend!
