Super luxe, this soft velvet jacket features side pocket detailing and a front bust pocket, in a slouchy silhouette. Bronzed buttons on the sleeve cuff. Lined.
a little awkward sizing
I love the color of this jacket. It's truly a stand out. It does run a little large and the cut, when you are not that tall like me, can be not so flattering. But with tight jeans and some heels you are one hot babe wearing this jacket.
I'm still not so sure about this one. The jacket itself is pretty, soft and seems to be well made. The fit is a little strange for me. (I'm 5'4 and about 125lb) I purchased a Medium, and it's long (like in the photos), but the arms are really long too. They go over my wrists and falls about halfway down my hands, which makes the whole jacket look a little too big on me. I would consider exchanging for a size Small, but I feel the shoulders would be too tight, as I can just barely extend my arms forward comfortably in the Medium. The blue color is also kind of intense. I feel like I would really love this jacket if I bought the black, and if the arms weren't so long in proportion to the tightness in the shoulders.
I've been eyeing this blazer for awhile and finally snatched it up when it went on sale. I go the purple, which is dark and wearable in person. It's absolutely gorgeous and I couldn't be happier.
runs real large
I am usually a size 12 and the large was too big for me, it was very unflattering, sack like, loose. I am currently trying to exchange for a M, but the jacket's out of stock again, which makes it difficult to do, especially with international shipping.... And I purchased the jacket just a month ago, and its already out of stock...
LOVE LOVE LOVE it especially on sale...
i bought this jacket in purple at regular price and i adored it... but i got a size too big , so when i went to get a smaller size I found there was this big sale, so i decided to get three of them!! and one for my mom too--- I got a black x s for me and my mom i got a dark green for me in a s ( for room for layering ) and i got x s in the purple -- all i can say is these are gorgeous and soft silky velvet -- love them
Will wear this forever
This is exactly the sort of piece that makes me a FP fan! I got the purple, which is a true royal purple, made of beautiful, flowy velvet. It's incredibly soft. I'm short (5'4") and small boned, but usually have trouble finding stuff that fits well across my small-ish shoulders and full bust. Not a problem with this jacket. And unlike a lot of FP stuff as of late, this is very well made with everything finished off nicely, good fabric weight, and well-sewn on buttons. LOVE!
Disappointing, looks like a velvet sack
I sized up to a M (normally S in tops), because of the reviews which say it's tight in the shoulders. It fit, but it is very VERY loose around the lower arms and waist, making it baggy. There's no "fit" at all, can't see it looking good on anyone with even a slight curve. It is tight around the upper arms rather than across the back/shoulders like I had expected. For some reason, it keeps pulling down off my shoulders, because of the fit, which is annoying and makes it look even baggier. I thought there might be some sort of hidden closure; there's not. Poor design/fit: the buttons on the arms lie under the bottom part of my wrist/arms rather than the sides, so you can't even see this detail. If you had the waist pulled in significantly, it still wouldn't be worth the price. I was expecting a higher quality velvet, even for the sale price. Easy decision to return.
I love this jacket! I am usually an extra small to small and based on the reviews, as I have quite small shoulders I went for the XS. It fits perfectly with some light layering underneath.. I am tempted to purchase it in another colour for wearing with heavier layers in winter.
I just received this jacket.. The current sale price is a great deal. I think I will be wearing this often. It should look great with leggings, jeans, or dresses. I am petite so I ordered an extra small. The body fits loosely, however it is cut small through the arms and shoulders. You won't be able to wear a bulky sweater with it. It is very well made and fully lined, although I did have to press mine to make it hang correctly. I think this jacket will be a fashion staple for years to come.
Yesterday's Muse Velvet Jacket
This jacket is absolutely beautiful! I ordered the balsam color, which is more green-blue than what the picture online shows. It is so pretty I couldn't be more pleased. I recommend sizing up if you are between sizes, or if you're on the bustier side! I usually take a medium in free people tops/dresses/jackets unless they run small, so I ordered a large in this based on the other reviews & it was definitely the right choice!
