Rated 5 out of 5 by kpower Simple and chic
This is the perfect piece for those events that fall between dressy and casual. Throw this on with jeans and heels and you're ready for the party! It has a slim, sleek fit that's best with lightweight vs. bulky layers underneath. I am 5'7 and 130 lbs with a small bust, and the size 2 fit well. The length is nice- provides some coverage in the rear. I don't love the polyester, but it's substantial weight and doesn't look cheap to me. The ivory contrast is deeper in person - it almost appears white vs. ivory in these photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by stylegirl This jacket is special
That's really all I can say about it - I have never seen anything like it and as soon as I put it on I fell completely in love and knew it was coming home with me! I got it with the 20% off in store on Black Friday, but it is absolutely worth the full price, too. It's beautifully made, a nice substantial weight, and would make any outfit memorable. I am about about 5'7" and 130 lbs like the other reviewer, but I have a very small torso, so a 0 worked best for me (consistent with another Cartonnier blazer I have). Note that these are bracelet-length sleeves, so don't expect them to go all the way to your wrists. It's actually a really nice touch as far as I'm concerned - makes it a little more ladylike and party-appropriate. If you're even thinking about it, I say snap this lovely thing up - you won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by IntheRed Love at first sight
This caught my eye when I was returning something but my size was on the mannequin. I traveled to the next closest Anthro to pick up something else and I couldn't resist trying it on. Instant LOVE! So flattering and I can see dressing it up or down. Even looks cool unbuttoned. Although the 0 fit (my usual size) I wanted enough room to possibly wear a sequined sweater under it so I went with the 2. I'm small, 105 lbs but wear a 32DD so... I guess the sleeves are supposed to be cropped, but they are the perfect full length on me. Was surprised the polyester looked so good. Looks much more expensive than it is.
