In 2009, I wandered into a Jean-Charles de Castelbajac store in London and instantly became a huge fan of his work. My best and most-frequently-worn purchase was definitely the patent rainbow loafers. But I also love my boob-cloud top, sidewalk-traffic-stopping Lego dress, sailor outfit and smiling skirt. When I was in Paris last month, I stopped by the store there. The inventory was pretty picked over due to the sales, but there was one jacket that spoke to me. I’ve been wearing it constantly.
What Wendy Wore
Jacket: Castelbajac (2011)
Jeans: Acne (2008)
Shoes: Vivienne Westwood (2011)
Necklace: My own Memento Mori design
Over the years, I’ve accumulated a lot of jackets. I definitely didn’t need another, so I was feeling a little guilty about this one until I noticed this tag on it.
Clearly, my dangerous liaisons with Castelbajac are beyond my control.
Love those shoes! I have similar ones in black boots by Viv. 🙂
That is a fantastic jacket. You can never have too many jackets.
There’s great red trim under the collar…I have to try to take a picture that shows that.

How could you NOT buy that jacket? It is fabulous as are the shoes. Do you shop alone or with a friend?
I shop with MrB!

Sounds like a keeper! 🙂
I love it! A nice addiction sounds like an excellent excuse. x

Like all the addicts say . . . “just one more.” It’s a gorgeous jacket, and it suits you perfectly. MrB shops with you? What a great husband.
“I’ll quit tomorrow!”

Ha I love that tag, how cool!! Loving the VW shoes Im wearing mine on my blog today too x
One of the best movies of all time! And correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t that jacket have a cool lining too?
What a great jacket, Wendy! I loved clicking through your links and seeing you pull off pieces that I’d never even pick up. You rock!
Susan Tiner says
The cloud-boob top is fantastic!
The jacket’s great, especially with the paw shoes. Great combo.
Megan Mae says
That is a pretty fabulous jacket. I think an army green jacket is as versatile and wearable as any black jacket. There are worse addictions to have. ;D
Hi my dear-a fab jacket and will love to see the lining on it, you can never have too may jackets either!! have a great weekend xxx

You can never have too many jackets – you don’t even need a tag to make you feel better!
