Trend Setter: Chanel gold metallic

Setting aside our disdain for Devin Wenig and the atrocities he’s committed against female owned proprietorships within the luxury clothing categories on eBay, there’s still a million reasons to continue shopping.   There are incredible steals up for the taking if you have the patience of a saint to weed through the China manufacturer direct duplicate listing spam, and the flooding of toxic Chinese garbage that has destroyed the eBay search engines.

A female politician, who will remain unnamed (for my own protection, not hers), from Washington, D.C, who is in part responsible for the creation of the policies that enabled Devin Wenig to FUCK all clothing sellers just purchased a $600.00 vintage Celine gold metallic brocade jacket for $19.99 with the cost of shipping billed to the vendor, leaving zero profit.  It’s awesome that a million dollar women can spend so little in the businesses of population she destroyed, wearing a design Chanel is currently bringing back as a current fashion trend.

Aside from the fact that the common folk usually doesn’t have $19.99 left over at the end of the month to purchase such a lovely jacket, there are still those who maintain a somewhat healthy budget and really should be paying closer attention to the steals and deals they are missing!

Do I sound bitter? I think it’s safe to say I’m feeling about as venomous at the irony of who benefitted from my steal & deal markdown sale as a coiled rattler.  I could never have predicted that the signee of the policy that put me (and thousands of other women) out of business would be the beneficiary.

At least she kept it American. For that I am thankful.

Is it Western Wear, Native American dress or just amazing cross culture fashion?

I’m talking about suede and leather jackets.   More specifically, the adornments that make natural leathers so unique and beautiful. This (buckskin jacket below) is another one of my fabulous finds.   It’s so very soft, thin and feels so comforting against the skin.

When I saw it I immediately fell in love it.  It’s the suede tassels and the lighter tone suede trim that makes it special.  Unfortunately it’s just a little bit too small for me so I put it on eBay to try and get some of my money back. I hope it finds a good home! My ebay auction

This was a difficult jacket for me to list.  I’ve grown attached to it for it’s raw and it’s the kind of jacket that can be worn with a pair of jeans and boots during the day and is fashionable enough to carry itself into an evening of casual drinks. It’s a beauty!

I struggled a little bit with the all important keywords.  Without the right keywords, the rightful owner will never find her new jacket!  To me it looks like it may fall into a Women’s Western Wear category but I feel “Western” is too broad of a term and “Pioneer” makes it sound, I dunno,  a little more rough than it actually is and maybe even less expensive than it actually was.  My Cherokee heritage tells me that it’s influence is Native American and that it might be prettier with some Jingles or rhythm beads attached to the fringe.  To say this is a high fashion jacket that would be right at home,  walking down a sidewalk on the back of a svelte fashionista on the upper east side of Manhattan is not unreasonable either.

I think I’ve decided it’s all of the above; Western, Native American and cross cultural.  It’s fabulous, whatever it is!  Don’t you agree?

In my internet search for keywords I came across these suede leather jackets from the f/w 2016-2017 fashion season.  If I had to choose just one I don’t think I could.  I’d like one of each.  Maybe the longer one for my fat days and the shorter one for flat tummy days.
