Brother, Can You Spare £1,145? February 28, 2009 by WendyB Because I would like to buy this shabby-chic Junya Watanabe denim jacket. £1,145.00 at Browns I regret not buying this vintage Cavalli denim jacket while I had the chance. At $645, it was a steal! Vintage Cavalli You might also like WantButt Bow Alert!Lucy Liu's Clothes in Cashmere Mafia
I like the second one best, wouldn’t regret buying it either!
Savvy Mode SG says
love the 2nd jacket. i always regretted not buying a long moschino coat and a chanel boucle jacket in wheat color.
Good luck getting the Junya. I think it would look great on you.
Sharon Rose says
Hi there-fingers crossed, the first one may come down in the next sale!!
lol my brother said the exact same thing about the mushroom too haha. But you must agree that it is pretty wicked awesome right? huh huh? :O
Read your interview on Nina’s and your answers were well thought out. Very deserving you were 😉
And don’t sweat it, you’ll find another bargain gem sooner or later 😉
I luuuuuvre the first jacket. WOW!
Shrimpton Couture says
when you see a vintage piece you love you should ALWAYS buy it – I still lament a Pucci piece that at the time seemed really highly priced and looking back it would have been a steal 🙁
But then again I am biased just a teeny tiny bit
I prefer the first jacket I think. Typical of me to like the more expensive one – this habbit of always liking the most expensive of everything (from shoes to chewing gum) is terrible!
I have to say, I prefer the Junya Watanabe. It’s wonderful!
Little Lj says
The second is a complete BARGAIN compared the the first! Set up a JustGiving fund!!! I think it’s a worthy cause haha!
Deja Pseu says
I can so picture you in either of those. They’re both fabulous. Keep looking; the right one will come to you at the right price.
You get title of the day for this one, W!
Oh man. That Watanabe jacket is just so amazing. I would recommend that you play the lottery.
Gladys Lopez says
Both jackets are amazing! When I saw the first one, I was like, “WHOA!” I wish I could own a piece like that.
Couture Carrie says
Wow, they are both lovely and edgy – congrats on your Cavalli!
That denim jacket is so crazy yet so beautiful! AND YOU HAD SILVER LIPSTICK? That is brave, and incredible. What made you stop wearing it 😛
I love that denim jacket, theres definitely room for it in the wardrobe…too bad about the price! ahhh!
July Girl says
Wow the jacket in the second picture is amazing!
Jen (MahaloFashion) says
I really like the first one, would look great with some skinny pants, the second one is a little much it would depend on the whole look. x

I can totally see you in the vintage Cavalli. I need to incorporate more of your “Phuket”
style. (I don’t swear on-blog so read between the lines…Thanks for the comments Wendy…I’m licking my wounds then I’ll be back. You’re such a faithful blogger friend. I can count on you to be the first one at the party when I post…I thought of you today when I saw this amazing Gimabattista Valli roses evening coat on Gilt.com. Go look at it. It looks like you, non?
Thumbelina Fashionista says
I’m not a fan of denim jackets, but I love the Junya W. too. I remember thinking it was pretty spectacular for a denim jacket when I first saw it.
La Couturier says
