There are two very notable and exciting parts to my outfit today. The first is that, yes, I am holding a real CHANEL bag. Unfortunately I do not own it; my life long goal is that one day I may own my very own Chanel bag. It belongs to my mother in law and she’s allowed me to borrow if for my admission as a lawyer tomorrow. She mentioned this near the beginning of the year and it’s an aspect of admission I’ve looked forward to ever since. Because I am so in love with it and I don’t know when the next time I hold a Chanel bag will be, I decided to take some pictures with it. Can you tell how much I love it from the pictures where I’m hugging this treasure? I am super in love with her (this bag needs a name); the perfect quilting, the beautifully crafted hardware, the perfectly structured logos and the classy deep red lining are all stand out features. It’s so classy and the ultimate fashion piece. I also believe it would make a wonderful decoration for the house.
Next I have my new skirt by Pho Sizzle Threads. I’ve written a few times about this fun and creative emerging label. After owning my namesake skirt, ‘The Imogen Skirt‘, I decided it was time to add the Berry Pencil Skirt to my wardrobe. The print is just the best. I adore the scalloped hem and the blue pocket/trim detailing. It’s lovely quality; a structured design while maintaining flexibility. There sure is a lot going on in this outfit and I can’t quite believe that of all the items in my wardrobe I chose to pair chevron with this skirt. But I love creating combinations which are unique. I wanted a thin top so it wouldn’t look bulky under a pencil skirt and this chevron design just happens to be very slim lined. Chevron is a great print, I should really wear more of it.
As soon as I paired the two together I knew this would be the winning combination.
