Chanel Inspired...

Is there anything more Chanel than quilted leather, boucle, chains and cropped jackets? I think not. Fortunately for all of us Chanel fans that have neither the coin nor are in their scope of sizes, we have some fabulous options right now. Here are the goodies that I have found and/or own that look like they have been kissed by the mind of Lagerfeld.

I will be the first one to admit, the bomber jacket, while it is pretty isn't very Chanel. But the skirt is! Wow! This quilted pleather mini is to die for. This skirt would look amazing paired with a crisp white blouse, multiple strands of pearls and a chain belt. It is from Mynt 1792 and is $108.00.

This pretty jacket was one of those items that I saw and knew I had to run to the shop and snap it up! Good thing I did! They were almost sold out. This piece is made of a stretch fabric that doesn't let you look boxy in it for a minute. The chain and quilted (faux) leather is a detail that is rarely seen on plus fashion items. This piece is so well made and looks amazing with jeggings. It is from Addition-Elle and it is now on sale! It can be yours for $59.99! It fits true to size.


These boots are so fab. Who ever thought that we would get quilted leather in a wide calf boot? I had only dreamed. These are made for Canadian winters as they are lined with fleece and cover up one's leg up to the knee. They can be found at Penningtons as part of their MBLM collection. They are $95.00. They will also be found in my closet as of next week!
This belt is pretty and functional and fits with any Chanel inspired look. It has a stretch band in the back of the belt making it comfortable and easy to wear. Slung over a tunic with some leggings and the above quilted boot and some pearls, and you have mastered the look. The belt is from Asos and it is $33.76 SHIPPED!

And as a special treat to end off this is Karl Lagerfeld WITHOUT his shades on!

Have a great week, everyone!
