The Ann Taylor jackets I’d posted about here arrived Monday.
This jacket is the one I’d had high hopes for. The detailing is nice, it’s cute and seems to be well made, but the color was wrong for me, and felt overwhelming. Someone with dark hair and a cooler complexion than mine could rock this, but it’s is on its way back to the AT Mothership.
On the other hand, this jacket was actually much better than it looks online. The color, rather than being black and white as it appears in the pictures, is a grey, brown, blue, ivory and black tweed. Very nice, and it coordinates with just about every pair of pants I own. The zipper is very unobtrusive when worn open. The fit is quite good, especially in the armholes, which are cut more narrowly than I’ve seen in a few years.
So here’s une femme’s Chanel-esque debut:
Stay tuned for vintage Davidow jackets, purchased from Couture Allure Vintage Fashion and ebay…
