As you already know I spent a short 5 days in New York a week or so ago (check out this post & this post to hear more) and some of you may have already seen the delights of which I managed to pick up whilst out in the big apple.
But just in case you missed the NYC Haul Video I thought it was only right to give this absolute dream of a jacket a little more air time... Don't you?
This jacket was scored at Woodbury Common aka HEAVEN! A designer outlet mall in New York City offering the likes of Gucci, Fendi, Acne Studios, Balenciaga, Valentino, Paul Smith and MANY, MANY more discounted luxury brands.
Within the Prada store at Woodbury Common there was a little Miu Miu boutique featuring past season handbags, shoes and sunglasses.
However, tucked away at the back of the store was a "reduced to clear" rail featuring one off's by both Prada and Miu Miu... That's where I saw it; The beauty that is this pink metallic structured jacket of my dreams.
The A/W 14 pink Miu Miu jacket in the most stunning of metallic jacquards was hanging alone on this reduced to clear rack, it's safe to say that I headed over to it with a little more speed than usual only to see that it was TINY and consequently my heart briefly shattered into a million pieces.
With a little encouragement from the girls I tried it on and the rest as they say is history.
The jacket fit like a dream, it was a match made in heaven, a dream come true, a piece that was made with me in mind.
I simply couldn't believe my luck.
What was a piece like that doing on a reduced to clear rail like this?
So with that in mind and as a firm believer in fate, even when it comes to shopping, I skipped on over to the cashier and took that baby home with me, 'cause... nobody puts baby in the corner now do they?
It was an absolute STEAL of a piece, having once cost over two thousand dollars, I snapped this baby up for just $219!!!! I mean what is this witch craft?! Such an utter bargain and when it hugs your body in ways you can only imagine, well some things are just down right meant to be!
It's such a beautiful piece of clothing, it's tailored to sheer perfection with a back panel vent, a figure flattering shape, an oversized collared neckline and chunky press stud fastenings to the front and to the pockets, not to mention the incredible contrast metallic jacquard in baby blue and pale pink... It was a no brainer.
And although it be oh so totally statement I instantly conjured up a variety of looks in which I'd be able to style it, meaning it fit into my oh-so eclectic and colourful wardrobe seamlessly.
Of course, if you've been watching my YouTube videos for some time, you'll know that if I can style it with light wash denim jeans then thats a sure fired way of me making a purchase... And boy does it look awesome with my beloved light wash straights from Gap. Oh and not to mention how you can TOTALLY go all out on the statement metallics and rock a Saint Laurent star print boot too... Did someone say dream combination?
So that's just one of the bargains I managed to pick up whilst shopping at Simon Malls in New York, I'd love to know what you think of it and whether you've fallen hook line and sinker for it too.
If you have any other ideas on how you'd style it, do let me know in the comments below I would LOVE to hear 'em and make sure you check out my latest YouTube video to see what else I managed to score out in NYC.
