I’ve been waiting for the temperature to drop so that I could wear this tweed jacket. It’s one of my very favorite pieces. I love the collarless design and the silver threads.

I love how the tweed jacket, bow front blouse, and quilted bag have a Chanel vibe. I love the classic style of Chanel but can’t afford the hefty price tags.

My general view of designer fashion is that it’s inspirational, but ultimately not worth the higher price tags. I can be a little fickle in my fashion choices and like to change my wardrobe up regularly. Also, unless the piece is truly high-quality enough to last for 20 years with regular usage, $2000 for a purse just isn’t very rational, maybe even a little immoral.
IF I ever decide to save up for a designer piece or hit the lottery, I would definitely choose to invest in a Chanel piece – a quilted bag or a tweed jacket. I would go with black in a classic style like the jacket shown above so that it would get lifelong wear and hopefully be passed down as an heirloom to my daughter.
