A couple of years ago at a special preview event at Chanel for their 2.55 bag exhibit, I was able to sneak away and browse around the upstairs (aka fancy expensive clothes) area of the Chanel boutique. One of the Sales Associates I knew, let me try on some Chanel clothes for fun. I slipped on the famous Little Black Jacket and knew instantly why Chanel is Chanel. The jacket fit perfectly and oh so comfortably. It looked sleek over my watercolored print dress but I knew it would also look stylish over t-shirt and jeans. The $4500 price tag of course made me realize that this kind of luxury isn't for everyone. But like Coco Chanel herself, I'm a crafty one who can sew. The beauty of Chanel jackets is that they are handmade and I hope one day to have a good chunk of time to make a stylish knit black jacket, just for me.
