the ultimate


chanel tweed jacket

i saw this jacket several months ago at a consignment store. i visited it at least once a month, and every time i walked through the shop door i expected to see it gone from its perch. finally one day i requested to try it on. as soon as i put it on, i understood why no one had bought it. it fit me perfectly, right down to the sleeve length. it was snug around my waist yet fit around my chest without gaping (i found out later that the lining actually has a bit of stretch in it); it was a soft-structured jacket yet the shoulders were sharp. simply put, it was perfect. the way the jacket fit made me feel like it was made especially for me and no one else. needless to say, the jacket left its perch at the shop and came home with me that day.

  2. True Pret a Porter....It was meant to be. I think of it that way too. When I see something that I really like yet at the time I may not be able to afford it.Or may not be the right time. I feel like the object of my desire is just sitting there winking at me and saying " One day I'll get to go home with you" One day. Nice find @//*_*\\@

  4. That jacket is indeed made for you. That is not to say that I would not be tempted to steal it if I was nearby and it was hanging by your side...
