Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Lallie I'm usually a size 0/XS and found the fit of this jacket in a 0 to be good albeit a little roomy, but not so roomy that it put me of purchasing.(5'7", 115lbs). I also actually like the addition of the chiffon ruffle around the neckline. I think it adds a feminine, romantic touch. I would be happy to wear the jacket with nothing but a cami underneath to keep things simple and let the jacket do the talking. It will look equally good dressed up or down. I only gave it 4 stars because it had a few loose threads and the button is loose - which, for the price is a little bit disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby namesarehard Cute, but small women will be sized out
I tried this blazer on yesterday because I was trying on a dress and I wanted to see if the dress would look professional (it did, by the way). I love the lace, and I thought the cut was flattering, even though I'm quite short-waisted and sometimes struggle with shorter jackets (for some reason the combination of short jackets and short waists = short on style for me!).
One detail I didn't like was that there was a strange ruffle on the inside that would sort of cover up whatever shirt you're wearing. You can't really see it in the photos, and I was able to tuck it underneath the collar, but I thought it was an unfortunately edition to an otherwise lovely jacket.
I tried on a 0, and it fit perfectly, but the problem with that is that I am 5'6" and a 32C, and I have shoulders that are on the broader side. For any of you smaller ladies, this jacket will probably be too big.
Overall, I would definitely consider purchasing this if I didn't already have several black blazers.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Vatscobug Classic with a twist
Beautiful. The lace and 3/4 sleeves are a refreshing twist. Can be dressed up or down. I have broad shoulders and generally buy a size up for jackets, but I tried this on in the store and bought it in my usual shirt size (4). There is a pleasant amount of stretch which makes this piece quite comfortable. Fit will accomodate layering well.
