A Chanel jacket is something I always wished I had purchased many years ago, as I'm certain I would have gotten my money out of it by now. It's a huge investment, one I doubt I'd have the nerve to make today, but there are alternatives out there and this new arrival from J Crew is pretty close. I'm not a clothes hound, but some pieces are worth the investment. My Max Mara camel coat, an old Armani suit, a very Jackie O suit that I bought at Barneys 20 years ago (and still wear) are some good examples. See this lovely jacket here. I think this one would be worth the investment, don't you?
