My faux Chanel

All the love of Chanel in the blogosphere has now got to me. There's something about the style that is distinctly feminine yet strong, professional, and timeless. There is no way I can ever afford any real Chanel, so I'm satisfied with searching for inspired things, especially the famous tweed jacket.  After searching pages and pages all over the net for a Chanel'esque jacket, I finally found one on Ebay that fits all my criteria! Ivory, collarless, cropped, black or dark blue details, cheap (won for $10), and fits.
Plastic Island jacket size XS (made in Korea)
It even has some fun sparkly threads woven into the ivory tweed (or is it boucle?....unsure of the correct term for this type of material). I plan to dazzle in this jacket! More outfit pictures to come.

In the meantime, here's some of my scrapbook pictures for Chanel jackets:
