I wanted to share with you all a new purchase of mine – an older Chanel tweed moto jacket which I have been lusting after for a year.
I first saw this jacket on Kate Moss at an event – like everybody else in the universe I love her and think she is one of the most stylish women on the planet. I’m not usually someone who finds personal style inspiration from celebrities (because generally they are taller and hotter than me), but Kate Moss is definitely an exception – I would wear almost every piece of clothing she has!
So I finally found the jacket above, albeit in a larger size, and was able to alter it down to fit me – FYI while doing my research on alterations, I found out that you can tailor most Chanel jackets up or down two sizes – they are constructed to be able to be altered in such a way! So if you find a great one on sale and it’s not your size, it may still be worth it to purchase.

Silk camellia lining
Metal chain at hem – if you alter a Chanel jacket, don’t cut this part!
I adore my new jacket and am so excited to wear it – I can’t believe I found it after all this time…
Do you all have items that you lusted after for super long, and then finally found after you had given up? I’d love to know!
