A Little CHANEL for Saturday

I love Chanel jackets and dream of owning one someday...
In the meantime, I was able to acquire this as my stand-in:
It's the Snapshot Jacket from Anthropologie, now sold out online, but still available in some stores. The picture does not do this little jacket any justice at all. It is much prettier IRL, well-made, very flattering, and oh-so it. :)

Tweed jackets are such a great staple piece to have in your wardrobe. Highly versatile and always extremely chic, they can be dressed up with a fabulous little pencil skirt, or dressed down with your favorite pair of jeans...a perfect little jacket to own.

Several options currently available:

Have a beautiful and blessed day!



  1. The ones from Spiegel and WHBM are my favorites. The one from Talbots looks interesting, but I imagine it might be matronly in person. Hope you get your Chanel one day!

  2. Tweed jackets are a great staple, I think my favorite look with them is the look with a pair of jeans. Chic but still casual!

  3. Wish I had purchased that Anthro tweed jacket! I think it's cute too, but tried it on many times but ended up putting it back on the rack. The way it's cinched didn't work for me...But I was so tempted to buy it when I saw it had been marked down twice to $39.95!!

    Can't wait to see how you style it, FFM! I'm sure it looks great on you!

  4. Funny you posted this about that Anthro tweed jacket, I was just in my local Anthro the other day and they had several of these, marked down to $39.99! (Down from $148.) I snatched it up and threw it on immediately and got tons of compliments on it all day! Great jacket and great bargain!

  5. We are on the same page, FFM! I just ordered the Tweed Dauphine on Spring Sale, fingers crossed. In Paris I saw many chic women wearing their tweed Chanel jackets over little black skirts (never with the matching tweed skirt, always with black).
    I love your tweed pick! :)

  6. Hi Ladies! Thank you all so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts! I truly appreciate it!

    Have a great day! :)
