Sweet Amy (Amiable) snagged a Spiegel jacket for me and sent it my way and here it is, along with the new INC Bailey 44-esque dress I got today at The Bay.
LOVE the dress - my favourite colour combo right now with blue, white and cobalt. it is a petite and a bit shorter than I might normally wear but actually, I'm liking the variety it provides compared with the VC tube skirts and some of my midi length dresses. In reviewing my closet, I have a very definite colour palette going for fall and winter in blues, black, white and grey.
And here is the now YLF famed Spiegel drapey leather jacket. The shoulder fit is positively perfect. I do need to shorten the sleeves (they are turned in here about 2.5 inches). It is pulling a bit when done up but not a deal breaker for me. I would be primarily wearing it open anyway and I know a size up would be too big in the shoulders. Besides I figure another 5 pounds and an inch or two on the midsection and it should be fine. I've over exposed the leather jacket pics so you can see the details a bit better.
So unless you see something glaringly hideous about either of these, I'm keeping both. Would you agree?
BTW I can see the dress with my white blazer, white leather jacket, black leather blazer, denim jacket, fur vest, black vest...
