My sister gave me a jacket recently, in this bold fuzzy plaid boucle type material, saying 'since you complimented me in it, I thought you should have it.' It's not her, apparently, and it's not me, really, either, but there's something about that Chanel inspired feel... mine is a jacket, more like the Chanel suits (and, even with a recent revival, is still several seasons old), and granted, this one is a coat, but it got me thinking... it's a nice change from black leather or fur (faux, or no), right? Especially if worn as this girl has: simple, simple, simple, with all black, esp. riding boots.
What do you think? Do you have some item of clothing that you can't quite bring yourself to wear, but can't part with it, either?
Speaking of which, I was thinking last night, if I had to pack one small overnight bag with all the clothes I could wear for the next year, what items would I pack? If weather were not a factor (obviously, right now, I'd be stuffing a trench in). Or more precisely: if I had to live in one outfit, if my life absolutely depended on it, what would it be?
I'd definitely have to buy a new pair of shoes first, of course. And I'd stuff a few swimsuits & a pair of goggles in, in the hope that whatever my destination was, it included someplace with warm, turquoise waters..
Oh and while I'm at it, embracing the things I had doubts about: two window shots on Sloane Avenue, embracing the colour purple (top from Dior, the other.. I forget!). I promise to get someone to shoot me soon, in my old purple Claude Montana jacket, which I'm sporting a lot around town these days.
