Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Ana88 Incredibly flattering
My grandmother always said- nothing is more flattering for the face than velvet.
and it's true!
The fit of this blazer is great, I am a Small REGULAR- not petite.
And the quality of the fabric was suprisingly good.
The sleeves fall in just the right place and 3 of my friends who tried it on said the same- it makes the jacket look super luxurious and well tailored.
Love love love. would totally buy in other colors especially blue or black

Rated 3 out of 5┬áby Stacey Good idea, bad execution
I tried this jacket on in a large, since I am usually a 10 or 12 in Anthro tops. I'm 5'10, 34DD bust. The fit was a little off for me -- the large was too boxy in the shoulders and chest. The sleeve length was perfect for me in the large, and I liked the contracting yellow lining on the sleeves -- adds a cute pop of color when you turn the cuffs. Sizing down to a medium didn't solve the fit issues for me, just made the arms and chest a tad too tight. The description claims this is velvet, but it seems more like a cheaper imitation to me. It wasn't the soft, plush surface that you might expect, but I found the jacket stiff and cheap-feeling. I wish this jacket had been executed better (nicer fabric, better fit), because I love the concept! Would have been perfect for fall with jeans and boots.

This jacket looks so cute in the photos but does not fit well and the fabric is a big disappointment. It is not velvet, but almost like a stiff corduroy. For the price, the jacket should be made of a luxuriously soft velvet. The fit was good in the shoulders and bust, but too wide and boxy to flatter the waste. I think this is the reason the model in the photo has her arms across her waste area... it kind of hides that flaw. I was looking forward to getting this and am disappointed I have to return it.
