Tweed jackets are one of those items that instantly embodies the Chanel name; classic and timeless. However, Chanel tweed jackets are pretty pricey to start, so when Jean from Extrapetite introduced a more practical alternative, I was definitely tempted
I hemmed and hawed for a few months before finally putting an order in with Uniqueen. The jacket arrived within two weeks from Canada and at first glance, the jacket was thicker than I had imagined and a little bulky. I didn’t mind it as much since it kept me warm during cold nights out. Later, Jean clarified on her blog that this particular jacket was the winter version with the quilted lining versus the satin lining for spring currently in stock on the website. The jacket comes in several spring colors now (pink, yellow, blue and green); haven’t decided if I might get pink in the satin version. We shall see. =D
I opted for the blue version of this jacket, because I just love that you can see the contrast of colors between the threads. When I saw this pink pom pom skirt on F21 clearance pile, I couldn’t wait to pair it up with this jacket and see how it would look.
