JCrew collection shiny puffer jacket

Sizing: I sized down one to an XXS, and it was still a loosy goosy fit.  Well enough room for layering.

Pros: interesting colours; ribbed cuffs and collar. Double zipper. Easy pockets.

Cons:  the scale of the diamond quilting, the oversized fit and the cut of the jacket made it a garment that seemed to add weight and unnecessary bulk to my frame. I didn't like the cranberry colour either. I have a love-hate relationship with maroon & in this shiny puffer material, it was a hate.

Deets: the jacket is cut straight and long. It easily covers your butt, and it's not snug over the hips or butt. So it feels like a car coat that turned into a wannabe bomber jacket puffer. Since others love the colour, I was tempted to keep it for a few days and see it letting it sit on ice would work. The. I just ordered the blue and returned the cranberry. I'll update with blue pics when I get it.

Verdict: blah. Return.

This last picture captures best how I felt in the jacket: wierd.

The colour seems to photograph well, I must admit. C'est la vie!
