I’m officially banned from looking at any more texts or emails from my sales associates. But this morning, a very clever person texted me a video of a sale jacket so I can better see it in motion. And as I said all those years ago when I first found out what the Internet was, technology will be the death of me! So with fashion and sales season still on my brain, today’s entry will include some “Runway to Reality” pics of some pieces I have not yet posted.
This is that 14P navy dress with a matching cutout jacket in the same tweed but in black (Karl always loves mixing black and blue!):
One of my favorite tweeds from this season was this navy blend done in an interesting tiered dress:
BTW, if you want a massive inferiority complex, do a collage of yourself against a stick-thin Glamazon half your age. But these photos are a good reality check for me to see how something should be fitted. And anyway, when I was in my early 20s I could not afford to buy Chanel. Isn’t that always how the universe works?
I can’t find a runway photo of this jacket, so here it is as displayed on a six foot tall mannequin…
and then on me, a good 9 inches shorter…
Out of all the photos I’ve posted in the last few entries and today’s, my favorite two items were actually not featured. I’ll save them for the next episodes of The Chanel Jacket Diaries :D.
