Yesterday's "Love it or Leave it" post received lots of comments (a big "thank you!" to all those who participated in the conversation!) I decided to bring the concept back, but this time for the Refined canvas Fiona jacket.
This jacket is another item that I have been lusting over for some time. I have noticed it in J.Crew's Sale section online and keep wondering if I should get it or not. I have been hesitant about purchasing it because of its shape- I am worried that it may not be a flattering style. I have gone to several J.Crew stores to try this on in-person. Unfortunately, the smallest size I could find is a size 4 which doesn't work for my size 2/0 frame on top. (It looked like I was swimming in extra fabric.) Unlike the Gayle Trench, the Fiona jacket has (1) ruffles that appear to be more tamed (although I do like ruffles!) and (2) buttons so it can be worn open and buttoned up (unlike the Gayle Trench, where you can only wear it wrapped).
What are your views on the jacket? Have you tried it on or own it? Do you think the jacket is worth the sale price?
