What’s puffed, polished, and oh so posh for any spring event? Anything quilted! There’s something so sophisticated and pristine about this texture trend that automatically takes your “lady-like” dial way up, as you sit and sip gracefully gorgeous while other’s chase bunnies and easter eggs!

At Polished for Pennies, we love taking inspiration from more expensive items, because we truly feel there is an artistry in high-end fashion that we can all learn a lot from. With that said, if you’re looking to attend an event this spring and exude the ultimate grace of a lady, may we suggest something quilted.

Our inspiration for this texture trend comes from an iconic women’s designer… Coco Chanel!  Specifically, an item that is so symbolic of her poise and femininity, Chanel’s 2.55 quilted hand-bag.

Now, we definitely don’t have the pennies for a purchase like a Chanel bag right now, and that’s OKAY!  We can look at it’s design and allow it to influence and inspire our style! Here are a few options for spring dressing like a lady that we think present polish for pennies, and will have you POPPING down the Easter trail feeling “Coco” and chic in quilted fashion!
