Tomboys love to polish up their jeans with a casual jacket. Inspired by a post from Sally at Already Pretty, I ordered this one from the GAP. Alas, Broad Shoulders, with their ally Moderate Bustline, strike again. Good feel, no fit. (Yeah, I’m making baseball jokes. Spring is in the air.) However, if you are narrower in the shoulder than I, and more expansive in the bust, or waist, this might work very well.
I ordered the heathered gray. You can see that it isn’t quite right. It is possible that everyone’s going to have to shorten the sleeves. To quote the British House of Cards, “I couldn’t possibly say.” Let’s pretend I’m a criminal and you have to pick me out of a lineup.
To quote my mother, very good-looking buttons.
The jacket’s made of 73% polyester, 24% viscose rayon, 3% spandex; the fabric feels substantial. I ordered a 6, if that helps with sizing. And it’s offered up to a 20, i.e. available for a nice range of human shapes. BTW, both Dani and the Hostess of the Humble Bungalow quite like their GAP loot, so we’re in good company.
Cost? Listed at $88, but on sale through today at 40% off with code DEALFORU. Which brings the total expenditure, given free shipping, to, wait, let me bring up the calculator. on my computer..$53.00. If it fit me, I’d wear it with white tee and blue jeans. Add black sneakers that I don’t actually have at the moment, or these Gravati oxfords, and white pearl studs with a little diamond accent. Ooh, or with these (20% off with code LOVE) , in black patent, and a matching belt. Sigh.
