Do you believe in LOVE at first sight when it comes to fashion? I do! Because it happens to me…
When I first saw this Sass and Bide Black and Gold Jacket it was LOVE at first sight, and I mean LOVE! Instantly when I put it in on I knew it had to be mine. It screamed a little bit of the 80’s with the black and gold print. The way one side of it fell down my leg was something else. It was different, it was unique, and it was LOVE I tell you, LOVE!
Scared of what that price tag would say, I wondered how much it was? And when I looked at the tag it confirmed it was more than I was willing to pay. From memory, it was $800-$850 AUD and I just couldn’t pay that much at that time. I asked the lovely sales assistant if this jacket was going on sale over the Christmas/New Year’s period? And apparently, it was…
I put my name down and ask them to call if the jacket went on sale. Low and behold they called whilst I was on holidays and couldn’t get into the store! (I was a 6 hour drive away from Sydney at the time!). I called our darling friend (who was with me at the time when I tried it on) and thankfully she went into the Sydney CBD and picked it up for me! I was jumping for joy. I got my Sass and Bide Black and Gold Jacket and on sale for $500-$550 AUD! #happydays #mehappy
I’ve only worn it a few times and whilst gathering photos for this blog, I had a shocking realisation, one where it’s an OH MY PRADA moment! This jacket was worn at both my cousin’s weddings which were 3 years apart and they are brothers!
To top it off I’ve even worn the SAME outfit including black pant, belt, and top with my designer accessories. I’ve paired it with my Louis Vuitton Clutch, Tigers Eye Ring, and Gold Manolo Shoes! The only difference is I changed my sunglasses from my Morgenthal Frederics to my Louis Vuitton ones. So naturally, I messaged their sister, told her the funny story and said, “Hey Cousin, guess what I’m wearing to your wedding?” HA HA HA
I flew back to Adelaide for both weddings. Here I’m wearing the Sass and Bide Black and Gold Jacket in 2013 and then again in 2016!
Here I’m on the Wind Surf Luxury Yacht sailing around the French Riviera where I’ve changed my outfit slightly ha ha ha! I’m wearing my black ¾ pants which I bought in a little boutique in Hong Kong back in July 2015, my black Prada pumps (to be honest I can’t remember where I purchased these from?), black silk sleeveless top from Laura Ashley, black and gold belt, Louis Vuitton Time Piece, Louis Vuitton Clutch, Tigers Eye Ring and my Morgenthal Frederics sunnies.
That’s the story behind my Sass and Bide Black and Gold Jacket which I LOVE, how it became to be mine, and the fact on the three times I’ve worn it, two of those occasions were for weddings of two siblings in the same family! #funny #blondemoment #goodtimes
