Banana Republic Camille Jacket I was eying online has finally arrived in petite sizing. I was intrigued by the shorter length and the waist-nipping "X" front - two signature features of the Theory "Gratian" Jacket that is famously flattering on petite women.
Likes: Very fitted. 00P was perfect for me in length, and the torso was snug when clasped. Figure-flattering silhouette with a slight peplum back
Dislikes: Partially lined (only the upper back half) so it looks ugly inside. Wish the material were a classic tweed or marled gray instead of stripey. Lapel is oversized.
BR is having 30% off women's (35% off with your card) today with code BRSAVE (code works on the Mad Men lace shell). However, this jacket was cheaper at my local store and will probably go on further sale. I am passing because I have similar and better in my closet already. Here's a better look of it on Ping, who is an inch taller but my clothing size exactly.
Military Jacket also with a peplum back. Would be nice with sleeves cuffed over dark denim:
Sydney, Ping, Khatu, and Vicky. I only wish that we had more time to chat, as I would've loved to learn more about each person who took the time to come out. Hurricane Irene also cut short the stays of two faraway visitors. Sadly I have very few photos from the evening. Update: Visit Sydney's blog for a few photos!
