Karen e-mailed me on Saturday morning, with subject “Twisted Jacket!’ “You have to go check out this Rachel Roy jacket at Macy’s! It’s great!” (Remember that I’ve been looking for a lightweight jacket for the warmer months.) She warned me not to let the image at the link deter me, that the jacket in person was much better than the picture. I’ll admit, if I’d seen this jacket on the rack without looking for it, I would’ve walked right by. But I’d promised Karen I’d try it, et voilà! This is another example of a piece that looks much better worn than on the hanger. I was also wary of the fact that it’s polyester, but it’s a nice light fabric that breathes and is quite comfortable. And the colors remind me of a watercolor painting.
No, I didn’t buy the matching shorts.
Here worn with my Gap Edition bootcut jeans (my last remaining piece from Forth & Towne…these are the best looking jeans and I’ll wear them until they fall apart!) a navy BR tee, my Gerard Darel faux pearls (also a bit twisted) and those fabulous Fluevog “Coffee Robusta” pumps (which are still on sale!).
(I think Karen bought this jacket for herself too; hopefully she’ll find her camera soon and show us how she’s styled it.)
