Growing up, Savvy Mom never objected whenever I wanted to buy classic pieces, even if these pieces were rather pricey. Because of her, Savvy Sis and I grew up buying classics. As result, our styles have always been fairly simple and timeless. Of course I do still buy fashion pieces but I won't spend too much. Granted, I made my share of fashion mistakes, but those mistakes were valuable lessons.
I grew up loving Chanel jacket and pearls. These two style elements have never done me wrong. I loved this jacket when I first saw it more than a dozen years ago and today I still felt the same way. For a luncheon the other day, I wore this old favorite with pearl necklaces and blue jeans. I think there is nothing more stylish and effortless than a classic Chanel jacket with jeans. A gal just needed a few strands of pearls and she would be ready to go out and conquer the world.
