Thrift Inspiration- Gigi Style!!

Browsing Net-A-Porter over the weekend, I came across these delicious leather offerings, which although out of my price range are very inspirational and gorgeous for this summer:

Maje, £215


Roberto Cavalli, £2545
Balmain, £4050

The lovely Gigi at A Tale of Two Styles has successfully customised a gorgeous leather vest-read her funny story of how she made it and see how gorgeous she looks in it-totally bang on trend for the summer and she shows what can be done with items you think you no longer like or want anymore!!

woah, the Balmain blew me away!
(But more importantly, I love that an Aussie chain store (Sportsgirl) is doing an even more fab leather knockoff :)

that vest would look amazing over a little white dress and flat sandals for summer!

I love Balmain's leather jacket. The front looks rather interesting, but I'm still puzzled at how to put it on....Does all of the front unbutton? Hmmmm?

I am just drooling over how beautiful these jackets are! It's rare for me to find leather or suede jackets that look unique and pretty, but I think they're just the perfect thing for cold weather.

atelier said...

I love the second, I cannot believe that's Cavalli!

Cal said...

those are beautiful! btw, remember when i was so jealous of your new leather jacket? i finally found mine! it is SO so soft and it was only $40, brand new. it is perfect. (sigh)
