Reader Sara alerted me to the fact that the link in last week's post for the Free People Ruffled Jacket wasnt working, so I checked it out. Turns out Piperlime was sold out of them. (I hope it was my readers who got 'em all!) So I did a little research and found a couple more places where you can get it, if you fell hard for this jacket like I did. Click on the photos for links.
It's still available in black in a couple of places.
But, interestingly, I also found it in a lovely deep red color
and, even prettier, winter white:
Oh, I love that.
Then I decided to post a few more jackets, just because there are so many great ones out there. All of these strike me as the sort of thing you might like if you like the ruffled one above. Tell me what you think.
This is Dolce & Gabbana. It's fairly spendy, but it is on sale.
This is Givenchy.
It is not on sale. Still -- very cool denim jacket.
This is wonderful:
LOVE! Twill jacket with taffeta collar!! Also -- great price!!
This is from Love Moschino, which is a line the company has launched that's supposed to be more affordable. And the prices do look a little more in line with what I think of as reasonable. (The name "Cheap & Chic" has always pissed me off a bit.) This jacket is available in black, but I love this fuchsia. Delicious little thing.
No ruffles on this one, but it has that quasi-military quality that I like so much. I think this is a great way to do this military trend and still get a jacket that you're going to be able to wear for several seasons -- it's not so extreme that you won't be able to pull it back out next spring without feeling embarrassed about it.
It's the sleeves here, of course. I adore this -- so soft and feminine and yet still with a great shape. I would live in this jacket.
I could easily have spent another hour looking at jackets online, but I had to get to bed. Here's hoping something in this lineup tickles your fancy. Tell me which ones you like best!
