We need a better digital camera, we admit it. We also need a shadow box when photographing our "smalls." We love you for loving the blog even if our photography is often inadequate as in the challenging case of this Coco Chanel Haute Couture 60s gold woven lame jacket with shocking pink lining. We have taken photos with flash, sans flash, au naturel, and something in between so those not able to visit the jacket in person at our store can see how wonderful and wearable this effortless and elegant jacket is in all the shades of gold. The soft cardigan silhouette has 3/4 sleeves and can be worn casually with a tee and jeans or as an evening jacket with a cocktail dress or gown. In the past fifty years since this was jacket was made, hook and eye closures were added and it's the next owner's choice to leave them or remove them. The lame shows some signs of wear, so we've priced this to be quite attractive since this will cost less than a cashmere cardi at Loro Piana! We think it's a great alternative to the ubiquitous fitted leather jackets we are seeing everyone snatch up to wear over a multitude of options. Sometimes the freshest look is something that's half a century old.
