Silk Tweed Chanel-esque Jacket Refashion

Not sure if this count as a refashion.....but I did transform something from not so attractive to me to something I would love to wear. I bought this Silk Tweed Chanel-esque Jacket as part of a skirt suit at my local Thrift store last month. It was blah and matronly on me so I added some velvet ribbon from my stash to jazz it up a bit.

The Before:

The Jacket After (with the navy velvet ribbon):

It only took an hour to do and now I love it. You can see more on my blog.

Wow! It is amazing what the bit of ribbon did for the look! It gives the eye something to follow rather than the full expanse of the tweed. Well done!

I would definitely call it a refashion! Simple, but a refashion nonetheless. :) Simple fixes make all the difference.
