Every year at some time or another J Crew comes out with a really good twist on the tweed "lady" jacket. so when they had one of their 30% off promos I had to try this years version.

This is the Jubilee jacket in tinsel. It is a lovely jacket and beautifully made. The fabric is a nude shade with a wonderful nubby woven tweedy texture. It has clear shiny plastic like fibers woven into it giving it a bit of sparkle which my camera did not pick up. It is really well made and fits true to size, unlike some of there jackets like the school boy which I can wear a size 2 or 4. This is a size 2. I really do like this jacket but it doesn't make me pee my pants with excitement( this is an easy task after two kids) like some of the others I have bought. It is a little "mature" looking I guess. And I tried to make it look more funky by pairing it with denim. I don't know.....

Tried it with boyfriend jeans and a stripe tee to see if It would work. I'm not convinced it does.

So I sent it back and even at 30% off . I just don't think see my self grabbing this time ofter time. I don't know, we'll see how low it goes after the holidays.
