Fall Arrival: Banana Republic Camille Cropped Blazer

*Update* Finally available in petites, starting in 00P!
Camille Cropped Blazer, starts in size 00 regular

Finally something catches my eye from BR - but it doesn't come in petites (yet?)! This shorter, wool-blend blazer w/ hook-and-eye closure is reminiscent of my versatile Theory jacket. Retail is $150, but they have 30% off online right now with code THANKS, and BR sometimes hands out 40% off coupons in-store, on Wednesdays. If you've tried this jacket on or have seen it in person, please share your thoughts!

  3. I could have sworn I saw it in petites online. Maybe they sold out? I have also spotted petites in the larger BRs but the 00 and 0s were gone.

  4. I'm in Vancouver and I saw this today in Petites, but no more sizes :( I was doubly disappointed because I had a 50% off 5 regular priced items coupon.

    I'll check another BR to see if they have it in stock.

  6. Hi, I've been an avid reader for awhile but this is my first time commenting! I tried this on in the store today, 0 Regular. The store didn't have the jacket in Petites! I am 5'1" 95lb, 32A, with broad, boyish shoulders. (For reference, I wear 00 in Theory pants, but 0 in their blazers including Gratian. Also, the J Crew lady day coat in 0P fits me VERY snuggly) The Camille fit well in the torso and the shape/length is very similar to Gratian. Predictably, the sleeves were too long. It is "partially" lined, which is really a small flap of fabric in the top, upper back region. The sleeves are unlined so you can feel the wool and it's a bit scratchy, though it wasn't itchy for me. It might irritate more sensitive skin. In the Regular size, the upper arm holes seem a tad big and maybe this is fixed in the Petites size. In sum, true to size, nicely cropped and fitted, but beware of sleeves.
