THE LITTLE BLACK JACKET – CHANELLE IN CHANEL
Sometimes I get really excited to share an outfit with you, just like you must sometimes feel really excited to wear a new outfit. This look is SO me, it’s everything I love, a look I would wear over and over again and maybe just change the odd accessory or top.
If you missed my last YouTube video where I revealed my latest CHANEL purchase you can click here and watch it, do not forget to subscribe as this way you will be notified when I share a new video. YouTube is where I share my new purchases and here (the blog) as well as my Instagram is where I show you how I wear/style it.
If you watch my YouTube videos you would have seen that I made the CHANEL choker. The pin is an authentic CHANEL pin but I attached it to some denim fabric I had laying around. If you follow me on Instagram you will see how I also wore this choker as a bracelet.
Watch the video to find out the story behind the jacket, the price, the fit etc. I mentioned in the video how I do not wear CHANEL the classic way, I always “boy it up” and pair classic jacket with denim and sneakers. There are so many ways I want to wear this jacket but this is a taste of the first look. Stay tuned to see many more styles. I hope this article inspirers you to wear pieces how ever you feel comfortable and do not be shy to play around with accessories and make your own little custom piece like my choker.
CHANEL ready to wear jackets start around £3000, they are very pricey but they are phenomenal pieces; well made classic jackets you can keep your entire life and pass down the family. The resale of CHANEL is one of if not the best brand with a high resale value. Preloved CHANEL is slightly cheaper and I recommend checking out some of the pieces I have my eye on. CHANEL is of course French sizing so they are a tiny bit smaller than UK or American sizing. I wear a 38 but I do have a skirt and jacket in a 36 and this jacket is a 42. I got this jacket tailored at CHANEL in Harrods but do not be worried to buy bigger because you can tailor it. Personally I would only go to a CHANEL tailor to be extra safe.
My CHANEL Trendy bag is now back in stock at CHANEL. Well they have basically repeated the style into this season, which they do not often do. They have made it in black and beige but the beige is slightly lighter than my one. The leather is also lamb skin. I receive so many questions about this bag so here are the most common answers to share with you.
Do you still like the CHANEL trendy? YES I LOVE IT!
Would you sell it to me? NOPE, I WILL NEVER SELL THIS ONE.
How is the lamb skin? PERFECTLY FINE, SURPRISINGLY DURABLE.
Does it colour transfer? YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WITH LIGHT COLOURS AND LAMB SKIN BUT THIS ONE HAS ACTUALLY BEEN EXTREMELY DURABLE. I AM CAREFUL BUT NOT THAT CAREFUL.
What size do you have? I HAVE THE SMALLER SIZE.
How much was is? £4260
Happy Sunday and make sure you tune in tonight at 6pm as I am sharing a new video, it is a holiday haul.
