Rated 4 out of 5Â by Hippiechick71 NOT so true color representation
So I go this today and I was skeptical because lately you see a pic of one color item and get another. This was again the case with this duster. Though it is beautiful in style and cut and runs true to size and not overly large like many other items... the color is NOT at all as pictured and named. On the model it looks like mineral or taupish... They call it "mineral" when in fact it is a deep dark flat gray. I hate when that happens because I had the entire ensemble already chosen for an occassion and now I'm stuck and not sure weather to try and make it work with something else or just return it. FP PLEASE be more accurate with your color representations and descriptions to avoid such dissapointments and hassled returns.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by FPKelly_ great for maxi dressing throughout winter
I've worn this sweater most of winter and I adore it. It forms a beautiful silhouette when paired with a maxi dress. Though the color is a bit drab (I have the greyish one), I think it is VERY flattering when thrown over a loose maxi that may swallow your shape otherwise. And the hemline dipping down in the back is an absolute gorgeous touch. An additional note: the hood is GIANT so if the forecast calls for rain, I keep this with me to protect my hair as well as my bangs since the hood falls down over my forehead in just the right way ! The belt in the back also holds the sweater together very nicely when it is zipped; you can show off your figure while staying nice and toasty in a loong snug sweater.
Sidenote: when I wore it in an FP store, a woman came up and tried mine on and immediately ordered it from another store! The pictures online simply do not do this piece justice.
Rated 3 out of 5Â by cari Not super flattering
I don't think this is a very flattering sweater on me. The cut is very wide around the hips area and it made my hips look bigger than they are (not exactly the aesthetic I'm going for!). When open the fit was just ok, but when zipped closed it was bad (read: wide). There is a lot of extra room and the pocket area juts out in a weird way.
I ordered my normal size, and XS (I'm 5'6", 120lbs, 32B). I think it's true to size, just not cut in a way that I find flattering, so it's going back.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by ruthieintheskywithdiamonds Pitch Perfect for Layering
So I ordered the duster in mineral & it just arrived today (lightning-fast shipping, by the way!) and it is gorgeous! Well made, flattering shape, and the length is exquisitely dramatic. Just my style. I'm glad I ordered a medium instead of a large like I almost did because of the chest measurement listed on the description (32.5, I believe). It fits like a true medium, and I think if I wanted it more fitted I could have gotten a small. But it is a comfortable and flattering fit as is, although a tad looser on my waist that I would normally opt for. However, for layering that doesn't seem to be too big a concern. For reference, my measurements are 34B, 28.5 inch waist, 37 inch hips, 5'7" tall & 134 pounds.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Shnay For the price...
Not worth it. I'm perfectly willing to spend that extra dollar for original, well made clothes that are constructed using decent material. This piece is only original so I gave it two stars for that. The material feels disgusting especially the inner part (I had to put on lotion after I touched it that's how bad it is), its heavy, not finished at the bottom and not flattering when zipped. Unzipped this piece looks fabulous. Now maybe I'm just too short and it's not supposed to hit where my hips are but it appears as though the model has the same issue. I got my usual S in the mineral color and maybe an XS is the fix, but personally this is going back and I'd only consider it if it goes on sale.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Gitana LOVE this sweater
I can't get enough of wearing it. I've worn it almost every day ever since receiving it. Its great with jeans, over a dress. Awesome with layering it under a denim or waist length jacket.
I ordered mine in black and I've received many compliments. It's an awesome take on a regular hooded sweater. The hood is also nice and roomy.
Yes it is long, but I like things a bit long and dramatic. I'm 5'3 and somewhat petite. I wear a small or x-small on top and a size 4 bottom. The train of the sweater grazes the very bottom of my ankle so it just meets my ankle. Great item.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by smiley13tree beautiful shape
I purchased this in the mineral color in an XS. I'm 5'3", 104 lbs, and overall, it fit well. The length hits a bit below mid calf. The sleeves are a bit tight, and I don't think I could layer a long sleeve shirt under it. The gray is just like how it's depicted in the images. I love how the hood is nice and roomy! The cut in the back really makes you look tall and slim!
Rated 3 out of 5Â by love2befree Material is Hard
The picture made this jacket looks so pretty..but when I received it, it was okay. Then I washed it! It's really heavy in your washer, I can tell the way my washer was having a hard time spinning this item by itself. So if you have a weak washer, don't get it! :) Anways, I hung dried it. And the material got really hard, and you can see little balls popping out of the fabric, if you know what I mean? After ironing it, the formed balls laid flat so it was slightly better. HOwever, the material was till hard, especially the inside. I will also have to agree with the other reviewer, that the color is totally not as displayed. The one I received is grey, not Mineral and does not look anything like the picture. In any event, I'm stuck with it, cuz I washed it.
