The metallic cloque Clea jacket (96121) is currently $129.99 and you can get an additional 30% off by using EXTRA30 through this Saturday. I ordered the Clea jacket last week. Unfortunately I don’t think I will receive it tomorrow or Friday, but if I do, I will be sure to update this post!
ETA: I recvd the Clea. It’s lightweight and doesn’t feel like you’re wearing an old school bedspread or piece of upholstery fabric. That was one concern of mine. It feels good on the body and doesn’t make any funny fabric noises. Can’t say mimicking the catalog look works in real life. At least not for me. I should leave my tummy alone, but if it were flat I think it *might* be a possibility.
Gigi: What do you think?
Bullfighter is not really the look I’d like, so it’s going back. I know the look I wanted to achieve by wearing this, but it’s not a match for my vision. I want an ornate, decorative sort of jacket and it will probably be a piece in beautiful condition from a vintage store. If I were keeping this, I’d definitely get it tailored. I think this cut is too boxy for my frame. If it were just a smidge longer or had a higher stance it might have been better. And all that said, I was hoping it was more green than yellow. When J Crew said sour metallic, they meant it.
