Unique blazer but whoahhh shoulder pads
This blazer is really unique and fit really well (size 8 - 36' chest - 5'7" 170 lbs). However, it wasn't the best cut for my pear/hourglass shaped body. I like blazers to nip in at the waist a bit, and this one has a fairly straight/boxy cut. Adding to the effect are the shoulder pads, which are quite obvious in this piece... they really square the shoulders and made my torso look like a rectangle. Too bad, because I really loved the perforations. Also, if this looked grey on your computer screen, best be aware that it is *definitely lilac. It's a really pretty color, though.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Really tight sleeves!
This jacket has beautiful fabric in person... it looks grey online but really does have a mint green tweedy look in reality. I was really excited when I got it, but even in a size L, the sleeves up by the armpits and shoulders were wayyyyy too tight! I could barely tug the jacket up where it needed to be in order to lay correctly, because of the tightness of the sleeves at that particular point on the arm. Plus, the jacket gaped with extra space around the bust area (my chest is 36"' and the size L was too big for it). So, too big in the chest, way too small for the arms. The jacket is so nicely lined and constructed that altering it to let out the sleeves, I think, would be difficult. As such, it is going back. Too bad, because it is a really unique blazer and I loved the tweed colors.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected
