chanel jacket/ lifetime investment

I took the plunge and finally purchased a Chanel jacket. Lifetime investmest for sure, that I know and I'm so excited to mix and match this item with other pieces in my closet. Denim, pencil skirts, wide legs, can't wait to see the chic possibilities. It's a cream tweed cropped jacket with gold CC buttons, silk lining and cropped sleeves. It feels great to build up your closet, discard all the rickrack and have nothing but solid, well made, designer pieces in your wardrobe. There is a level of satisfaction in that for me. Here are few images that have inspired me from my purchase.
