There are some items on your wishlist which you crave but you kind of accept that you will never find 'the one'. I have wanted a fitted boucle jacket for quite a while but I find it so hard to find a quality jacket that actually fits me properly. So I had no expectations when I want shopping that I would actually find one! Waiting for me in Libertys was this Isabel Marant Etoile 'Gary' jacket. I promise to take some of my own pictures soon.

The shoulder pads scared me at first, I normally would avoid them like the plague, but actually they are fairly subtle, and just help to give a bit of structure.
I like how this jacket can be so versatile. It will look good with jeans, skirts, trousers, shorts, for summer and for winter. Perfect! Although Isabel Marant is never cheap...it feels liberating to have bought one amazing thing. And although it inspires me to complete my resolution of buying 10 amazing items, this one buy has really satisfied me, and doesn't make me want to go out and buy a load of other things. I think thats the key to every purchase, it should satisfy you.

  3. I look forward to more pictures--but this one shows how marvelous it is in the meantime! Isabel Marant will be with you forever, so the cost can be easily forgiven by the checkbook.

  4. Terrific. I'd always been put off by the shoulders in pictures too, but sounds like they're worth a second look. I've always wanted a collarless boucle jacket as well, but no luck. Eyeing a DKNY one now, maybe I'll get lucky.

  11. It is a beautiful buy, indeed. I know what you mean about the shoulder pads, but that seems to be subtle enough and they do give a nice frame to the rest of the outfit.
    Can't wait to see your photos of it!=)

  12. Lovely! I have an Etoile jacket from the F/W collection with shoulder pads as well. I was hesitant at first, but it really adds something extra to an outfit. /Sara

  13. Hi there. We are jacket twins! I have actually bought two Gary's: one in this light grey colour and another in dark grey. As you said, they can be so versatile so I am sure I won't regret.

  14. That is a very pretty jacket. I am a Marant-addict too (especially the jackets) and I haven't seen this one in the shops yet, you are very lucky. I have the same colour, but from the previous season (Vally) wich looks kinda the same. I think the shoulder pads gives it a very nice edge!
