I didn't have super high expectation for this vest because I'm not really familiar with the Jack by BB Dakota brand. When I opened the package however, I was blown away. This vest is absolutely gorgeous. The coloring of the chevron pattern is absolute perfection and it feels so soft and looks very fluffy. This runs true to size as well. I'm 5'3, 34B, size 4 and typically take a small in tops and the small in this fit perfectly. It was just roomy enough that I could lightly layer but not so roomy that I looked like I was swimming in it. One of my favorite features is the two handpockets that this has as it adds a nice touch and makes it that much more luxe. i'm so pleased with this vest. I told my Mom so she could snap one up too and she did. Highly, highly recommend as this is a steal at this price point.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Very cute jacket but does run small
This jacket is adorable on but be forewarned, it does run small. I'm 5'3", 34B and typically take a small in jackets and tops and the small didn't fit me at all in this. Very tight in the arms and somewhat tight in the bust. I tried the medium and though it fit fine in the body, it was still a little slim in the arms. Someone with thinner arms might not have a problem with that (my arms aren't huge but they're not tiny either) but it doesn't work for me. Quality is great though and I love how unique it is. I've found the sizing on BB Dakota jackets to run smaller so that could be part of the problem. Just keep in mind that you might want to order a size up.
