This is a little late, but since fall collections are already rolling into stores I wanted to share with you one of my favorite new (to me) purchases for this coming fall/winter. I really really love Chanel RTW and always drool each season when the new collections come out. My budget is much more on the J.Crew/Club Monaco side than Chanel but I still would like to own a few special pieces in my closet and hope to accumulate a little collection over time.
New Purchase: Chanel trenchPosted on August 4, 2011
I first saw this amazing navy trench in Chanel’s Boston boutique in 2008 – I was there visiting grad schools and decided that I should do some window shopping as well. As soon as I saw this trench, I was in love – I walked over and said to the sales associate, “Can I just stand here and stare until some real customers with money come in??” She laughed and said of course. I didn’t end up buying and it has haunted me ever since…
A few years later though, I had the opportunity to buy this amazing trench from my friend Larkie – oh, to have her problems of too much Chanel RTW! It arrived in beautiful pristine condition –
The beautiful buttons with airplanes on them…
The chain hem..
My new love!
Thanks for reading about my new (old) purchase! What’s your current favorite purchase?
