If you read this blog regularly, you know that I am a fashionista, that is, "a woman with a penchant for shopping and a natural flair for combining both current and vintage fashionable trends."
Yeah, that description fits me to a tee or should that be "T"?
I love the classic fashions from the past like the "Chanel suit," a timeless classic introduced way back in the mid-1920's. It is still for sale today and I would love to own one, but I would have to spend about $5000 for a new Chanel suit off the rack, which is a little out of my price range. So I keep an eye out for Chanel suit knock-offs.
Jessica London had one for sale (photo right) earlier this year for $145 ($90 for the jacket and $55 for the skirt).
I seriously considered ordering it, but I was reluctant to spend even that amount of money and forgot about it.
Thursday, I received a new catalog from Jessica London and the suit was in the clearance section for $45 ($25 for the jacket and $20 for the skirt). That was more to my liking, so Friday morning , I ordered the suit on line along with the ivory satin blouse they were showing with the suit (the blouse cost $13).
Minutes after I completed the order, I received an e-mail offer Jessica London: $25 off any order over $50.
My suit and blouse order totaled $58 (excluding shipping), so I called customer service, explained what had happened, and they granted me the $25 discount. So for $33 (excluding shipping), I bought a Chanel suit knock-off and satin blouse.
They shipped my order on Friday and now I anxiously await its arrival.
