New Goodies

 Vintage Chanel Pins: eBay | Striped Shirt: Frank & Eileen | Leather Jacket: Parker c/o | Denim Jacket: Express Handbag: Valentino

1. Vintage Chanel pins: I’ve been wanting some gold vintage Chanel pins for some time now (years!) and although I’d always search for them in vintage shops or on eBay, it wasn’t until I saw Queen Bey herself, rocking a bunch on her denim jacket that made me finally take the plunge. If I can’t have a booty/hourglass figure like hers, the pins will have to do *sighhhh*.  In the short time that I’ve owned them, I’ve worn them on my denim jackets, blazers (either one pin or both) and plan to accessorize my winter coats.

I bought them from this seller, on eBay and after shopping around on a lot of sites/stores, I can say this eBay shop has really great prices. Probably the best I’ve seen. The items come from Japan, but shipping was surprisingly crazy quick. Tip to keep in mind: it’s hard to really tell size online, so make sure you measure to know what you’re really getting. First, I ordered the double CC and foolishly, didn’t measure it. I was expecting a much larger pin, so learn from my mistakes. I actually don’t mind the size at all, but just a heads up!

2. Parker leather jacket: the most buttery soft, navy blue leather jacket, taken up a few notches with the zipper detailing. The jacket will be available for purchase in a few weeks, so I’ll keep you guys posted on that. Speaking of Parker, they’ve recently launched their ‘Parker Black’ line, which will be a full range of evening wear. Pretty excited about that since they already do dresses so, so well.
