This one's been marked down before I ever even noticed it, so I hopped to try it on.
Pros: silk outer, quality construction, longer length (like the new schoolboys) and slim cut.
Cons: fully lined - in polyester! Ugh. The print is a bit of a liability (see below).
Sizing: in truth, my bust determines that my size should be zero in jackets and blazers. My shoulders want a 00. I have been sizing down to a 00 in all blazers for over two years now, bc I prefer a very tailored look.
Verdict: the collar is under-lined in peach felt. Almost neon peach. The blue is a dark iris blue, the flowers are peach, pink and off white. The print and colours scream upholstery to me - of the kind in doctor's waiting rooms that I silently dislike while being subjected to it. This is old lady street ; mother of the bride; gross sofa in a room with peach walls. So why is it even mildly making me take pause?
Because it fits well, it's light in weight, and it seems to match the striped linen pants the best. I need your votes on this one!! Please help!
