These past few months, a majority of my credit card charges were due to online purchases from J. Crew. I have been on the quest to find my perfect winter coat (and I'm pretty sure I'll have a winner by Monday when I get a package), which has resulted in a bunch of returns due to sizing issues. In addition, the 30%/40% online and in store sales have proven dangerous for me, as I check the website each morning before work and often just make the impulse buy before sizes are gone. Though these items are on sale now and will be gone soon, I figured a review could be handy as similar styles may appear next year. At the very least it would be good for future reference, right?
Snowcap Quilted Jacket in Dark Olive, xxs, xs
|0R - sorry, the arms blend into to the body|
I tried on a dark purple schooboy blazer in wool flannel, 0 in the store. After seeing it on a few petite bloggers, I had really high expectations for this blazer, but was disappointed The material seemed much less substantial than the hacking jacket above, and was a bit crinkly. It is also a little more apparent in the side view that I needed to size down. I am hoping the material in the two schoolboy blazers I ordered is a little different and that sizing down will eliminate the problems I had with this blazer. Good thing the two jackets are not final sale, phew! The blazer is $99 in store and online before the discount. My store only had the dark drape color left, and mostly in larger sizes. I am tempted to purchase the modern red...
