Rated 4 out of 5┬áby DCAnthroDevotee Cute jacket with odd button placement
I ordered this jacket in a size 6, my usually size in jackets. It fit well, but it is a bit short on me, hitting me high on the hip (I'm between 5'9" and 5'10"). The colors are vibrant, but while the color in the product shot reads as more red to me, it is definitely more pink in person. The sleeves are a bit on the short side. There is only one button, and it is placed very low on the jacket, about at my belly button. I would have preferred it if the button were at the center of the jacket to create more of an hourglass shape. The combination of the sleeve length and the placement of the button make this jacket look a little bit like a vest to me. All that said, it seems to be well-made for the price and looked flattering.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Gardenthymegirl Work friendly summer blazer.
I'm not normally a fan of short sleeve or sleeveless blazers, but the cut and style of this adorable blazer by Elevenses convinced me to give it a try. I'm so glad I did because the cap sleeves cover just enough of the arm, and the deep v-neck finishes nicely with a single button closure. I think this will look nice with lightweight summer dresses instead of a predictable cardigan., as well as with linen trousers and a nice heel. The tailored look will pull together almost any outfit to make it work worthy. Fit tts, maybe even a bit large, as I was able to size down to a 6 and I'm a 36C. I only wish it came in other colors, but the floral with black and red and yellow will go with a lot.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby GidgetGoesHawaiian Try it!
I normally despise short sleeve jackets - I have never owned one before or even tried one on. I always think of them as either very inexpensive or intended for "older" women. I had seen this online a few times and passed it by, but last weekend I was in the Chelsea Market store and saw one in the sale room. It wasn't my size, but I loved the pattern and fabric (big fan of elevenses). When I saw my size online, I grabbed it.
What sets this apart from the normal short sleeve jacket is than it has a cap sleeve and is very fitted (has lycra and is meant to fit snuggly - flattering the waist and providing a peplum). The fabric is nice and heavy and the print is brighter than the photograph - looks great with black trousers or a tank dress. BTW - fits TTS.
