My New Ladylike Jacket
So when I was in Paris I really didn't buy much. Most of the brands are available here and the dollar is terrible (pronounced with a French accent, bien sur). But I did get talked into a very ladylike jacket that is equal parts Chanel and equal parts French Vogue. But I wanted to figure out a way to modernize it a bit to make it young. The solution, skinny jeans a draped tee and flats for the day and trouser jeans and heels for a night out. But I've really been seeing them everywhere and I am so glad I got talked into it. The jackets are tailored enough that I'll be wearing it for years to come--with suits, too--but I can make it hip and trendy and my own. Totally love.
