Rated 5 out of 5 by Manola glitzen frame blazer
I wore this on Christmas Day with a black dress. It is very comfortable, was able to roll the sleeve up a bit, and it was not heavy feeling at all. I received so many compliments on the entire outfit. Black dress was from Anthro as well as tights that matched the jacket color. The sequins are lovely, and sewn on very well. It runs true to size, order one size up if you want extra room. Beautiful addition to my closet. Thank you Anthro!

Rated 5 out of 5 by pufferfish Just order it.
As the other reviews note, you're getting an absurd amount of quality for your money, and this jacket is really unique. Honestly, it's so cool. I was complimenting myself in the mirror. I few things I couldn't tell from the picture:
The sequins are a brassy, matte gold (which is a good thing). They seemed more pinkish on my monitor than they are. I'm very pale (olive-tone but super white), and this shade of nude-pink is extremely flattering on me. That odd horizontal seam in front? Keeps the whole thing from feeling 80'sish, and, yes, those are slit pockets. I'm very straight-up-and-down, and worried this would look boxy. It actually hangs beautifully, and while loose, it has a slim, relaxed effect. Jackets are tough for me because they tend to be tight in the shoulder (so I can't stick my arms out in front of me). This laid perfectly and had enough stretch! It's definitely light enough to wear into spring. My only negatives: the lining is pretty cheap compared the rest of the jacket's materials, and there are a few spots on mine where you can see the netting to which the sequins are attached. Neither major. I'm in love.

Rated 4 out of 5 by emsie Great piece and an even better price!
This blazer is great!
First of all, sequins are in, and they're projected to remain in style for the rest of the year. Also, the color of this blazer is just like Pantone's "Linen" - one of Spring 2013's colors!
Those two trendy tidbits aside, this piece is lightweight and pretty. This will jazz up any basics you throw on, and is fun attire for a night out. There's some stretch to the lining, so as the previous reviewer mentioned, you can roll up the sleeves for a slightly different look. I think this is true to size - I stayed with my usual size 8 and it's comfortable.
The only caution I'd give here is that if your shoulders are wide (like mine) the sequins can add bulk. I think it's worth it anyway. This price is ridiculous for such a unique and versatile blazer so I'm keeping it!
