The only jacket in this world

Yes, my jacket is the ONLY one, which surprises me and amazes me so much.

After months of waiting, my Balenciaga jacket finally arrived.

I fell in love with this jacket right away when it was shown on Balenciaga's '06 spring runway show. It was such an amazing collection which melts Baroque and Rock & Roll together in an extremely architectural way. I knew that it was THE jacket people see once a life time, and I had to have it.

I even put deposit to order the jacket I wanted. They only produced a couple of the variations showed on runway, but I wanted different combination of colors and details. The special order service got me the exact jacket I wanted, just for me:)

I didn't pose. Imagine Jing as a clothes rack in those pictures. I want you to see how the jacket fits and how the details look. I guess that I would wear that outfit to a nice dinner, or to a nice Rock & Roll concert. That is an evening look, and indeed it is so me, the single Jing with all those rebellious ideas and the Jing who rarely followed norms.

I wore the jacket out shopping today. I dressed it down with white corduroy(my husband got eliminated in a spelling bee contest because of this word) pants and a light grey tissue T-shirt under. I also tried a look last night with the Balenciaga tank under but pairing with a flowy schiffon skirt and killer heels. That would be the outfit worn at my birthday dinner with Mr. Jing, and maybe a dance after.

Life changes, but a jacket like this will follow me for the years to come.

Wow--that jacket is gorgeous! I especially love the print, and the shape of the sleeves. Now if only style & firstview offered more detailed shots like the one you provided, then I might have something more to say.

On another note, I really enjoy reading your blog. I came across it on TFS. Im NOT knocking TFS, I do love it so, but sometimes I get the feeling that members there seem to always agree w/ the more frequent posters, or seem to repeatedly discuss the same designers over & over again (Anne D., anyone?)..To me, a lot of people there seem to be "going w/ the pack". That's why I enjoy reading your blog: clearly, you have your own style, and your own set of personal opinions & ideas, which to me, is the most fashionable thing (I hate that word) anybody can have.

Cheers!

ps-God bless you for waiting that long for the coat! An impulse shopper like me would NOT be able to pull it off!

I adore your jacket! I'm utterly in love with this collection too and would have loved to get exactly the jacket I wanted. Unfortunately as a student I didn't have the funds to pre-order and had to wait til the recent sales but was able to find the black chinese floral print jacket heavily discounted, the white printed tank I got one on ebay and I also got the grey paisley jacket on sale (like yours but with the cropped sleeves with black turned up end and black flaps covering the pocket) and also the stripey pants from aloharag they're on sale now!!

So quite a lot in the end but still wish I could have got exactly the jacket I wanted as you were able to!

Is your jacket blue, it's hard to tell in the pics? The colour looks lighter blue than in the runway, is that the special colour you asked for? I really wanted the blue one that Sienna Miller wore on the cover of february UK Vogue but I'm sure they were sold very quickly!!
