Thrift Inspiration, Louis Vuitton Oriental Style

A key look for this Summer is Oriental and Louis Vuitton have featured this trend in their Spring Summer Collection for 2011.



A visit to Barnados charity shop earlier today (I was good too, as my prime reason for going was to drop off a donation) sourced this Oriental jacket by Yushan. The all over pattern is actually embroidered, rather than a print and the jacket is lined and I'm sure it is silk.

Its a perfect little jacket for summer and although I do love the Oriental look, a dress would be a bit too much for my style of wearing this trend

Will you be going Oriental this Summer?

Hmmmn. Will dig around my 'back stock' and see if I can find something oriental that might fit me. Like Rebecca, I can't wait to see how you will style this pretty jacket. It's you who is the inspiration, Sharon!

Not sure. I am very non Oriental in every possible way, so I am not confident I will look good in this style. But I love what you got! I wish I could pull stuff like that off!

I love oriental and have been scouring eBay for a suitable oriental purchase for weeks... I hadn't realised it was 'the next big thing' so now I'll be keeping my eyes doubly peeled for an oriental bargain.

Jesus! How are you so ON all the time? Best eye for trends evah.

Pearl Westwood said...

Lovely find! I have a red and gold cheong sam I wore it on a night out once but it has been confined to the closet ever since I think it looks a bit too much like fancy dress!

Dear Sharon, that is lovely, the print and colours are really pretty.

I love the Vuitton collection. I have a couple of jackets which I must dig out.

Hope you're having a lovely weekend xx

What a great find! I'm sure it will look lovely on you (with jeans, with the black leather skirt?) I don't know yet if summer will put me into oriental mood. xoxo
