Runway Vs. Reality: Paris-Dallas Jacket

IMG_6041 (800x800)

Having grown up in Dallas it was quite a thrill for me to hear that Karl and his gang would be paying tribute to Big D during its 2014 Pre-Fall collection. While I loved the theatrical quality of the runway, it was actually a bit challenging to pick looks that translated seamlessly into real life.

I’d pretty much written off the collection fairly early on in the season since I could not find the jacket-cardigan from Look 5. I thought it was a distressed leather jacket that I knew would perfectly suit my distressed 2.55 flap from a few seasons before:

So imagine my thrill when I found the jacket, which is actually a coated cashmere jacket-cardi with a blanket-stripe lining, recently at the NYC boutique!

You know how the saying goes, you can take a girl out of Texas but…. I’m just happy I finally have that Lone Star somewhere in my Chanel collection 😀 .
