Last week I was browsing one of my all-time favorite fashion blogs - Who What Wear -when I saw something that got me really excited: Asian influenced clothing. You see, about a month ago the hubbie and I spent several days in DC with his aunt and uncle. During our visit, his aunt was generous enough to let me peruse her closet for items that I might like. That was when she introduced me to this beautiful jacket that she purchased while they were living in Japan. I love the beautiful detailing, and the quality is surperb. Not that the Marc Jacobs Brocade Jacket above isn't gorgeous... but I like to think mine has a special "umph" that you can't purchase from a store.
