Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 October 2, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. October 10, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Fit Issues This may only apply to me. Broad shoulders, narrow waist. I have a hard time finding jackets, but it was way too restrictive in the shoulders. I felt like I was wearing a strait jacket, but the waist was still bulky. If you are hoping for a jacket with a little give, this is not it. October 24, 2012
