Alternative suiting

I was prompted by a networking event to browse the mall for a new jacket. Remembering that I had seen some jackets similar to this style that were on sale at Sears, I thought I would look there. After not finding the original jacket, I settled on this lovely Chanel-inspired jacket on sale for $5! Although the cropped length makes it difficult to find things to pair it with, I like the modern look of it. The fringe lining makes it just wild enough and helps bring life to these simple black pants and nude color top. True to Chanel style I had to pair this with classic pearls, red lips, and a low bun.
