Joe, Meet Coco


If GI Joe hooked up with Coco Chanel, their offspring would dress like this, I'm sure of it.  And she would totally have this bad-ass look on her face (way badder than what I can pull off), and she would tell you that it's blazer day on Everybody, Everywear.  Only she'd say it in French and we'd all be like 'huh?'.  Except those of you who know French...you'd understand.  And then she would whip off her gigantic, silver faux-pearls and demonstrate how they double as a weapon. 

Just call me GI Jill Chanel (because I was a love-child and Coco refused to give me my father's name).

Yes, I've thought about this WAY too much.  My imagination is well-preserved, ok?

Necklace:  Target
Blazer:  Banana Republic, thrifted
Thermal:  Target
Jeans:  Lux, thrifted via Valu Thrift
Boots:  DSW

I love the necklace. Really brings that little extra bit of Chanel to this outfit. How long ago did you get it at Target?

Such a unique take on the theme! I am surprised by how much I love the contrast between your jacket and shirt. I love surprising outfits like this - definitely encourages a double take (of the good kind!)

I'm not sure if I like the outfit better, or your description of it. The awesome detailing drew me to it, but I'm staying for the use of giant pearls as a weapon (man, jewelry does have great potential for weaponization).

Lol your description is spot on, and funny. A great look on you. I love that Chanel inspired Blazer
