Can you tell the fake in these photos?
No…it's not me.
The jacket reminds me of this…
But of course I didn't have an extra $1,500 laying around needing to be spent on a vintage Chanel jacket so I picked up this faux Chanel for $12 at Value Village.
I need to get better photos because the details are amazing. The buttons, the seaming, the tweed. It's by Kasper.
Yes it had to spend 4 days outside airing out that raunchy thrift store stench…but now after a few days outside and a good shave with my clothing de-piller she is looking lovely.
The shoes…the shoes are real. Anyi Lu. I'd never heard of that brand before I stumbled across these at a consignment store. They caught my eye right away and when I slipped my toes in them I could feel the quality. I used up most of my store credit to buy these babies.
I saw the most amazing Chanel jacket when we were out last Thursday night for a Vintage Crawl in downtown Toronto. I think it was $2,500. Yummmm….yeah…..no.
That can't stop a gal from dreaming though.
If I could own one piece of authentic high end clothing it would probably either a Belstaff leather jacket, a Hermes Birkin bag or a Chanel blazer.
What would you choose? And don't worry…if you are like me, it will be hard to narrow it down to just one choice : )
If you are lucky enough to already own a piece of high end clothing… please share.
Then we can all be jealous of your good fortune.
