i thought it would be a good idea to post pictures for the lady jacket, given that you can score it on j. crew with an extra 30% off (code OURTREAT). the lady jacket in the double serge wool (here) is now marked down (the berry combo which i am wearing is 198 for US/230.99 for canadian buyers minus an extra 30% off). i also got it with the extra 30% off, and am very happy with this purchase. so much for no more blazers!
now, my blazer weakness aside, this jacket is a gorgeous double serge wool (like the skirts), with a good weight to it. the construction, while not fitted, is also nicely tailored, so it does not come across as being too boxy. the winner here though is the amazing colour. in real life, there is a lot of life and pop to this berry. it can come off as being a bit red in pictures (especially since it was overcast in these pictures). however, it is definitely a brighter pink. see it on feeling j crewzy here, and in the gray/navy combo with m, here. pair it with a statement necklace, and voila! the blazer is my regular j. crew top/blazer size 0.
i also put on a pair of jeans, to show how it can go from dressy to casual very easily.
