One of my favorite (but most conflicted) purchases from J. Crew recently is this Confetti Tweed Jacket.
This jacket is not available in petite so the 3/4 sleeves look a bit off on me as they end (awkwardly) about an inch above my wrist bone. The jacket in 00 fits me well otherwise. I bought the matching mini skirt (not too mini at 17.5 inches long) a few days later even though I don’t plan on wearing them together with any frequency.
Part of the J. Crew Collection, the jacket is slightly pricier at $278 but is now $169.99 in stores (I bought mine for 30% less during the last promo). The skirt, which retails for 98, dropped in price to $69.99.
I think opinions on this jacket (and the skirt) will vary – after all, rainbow-colored tweed is not everyone’s cup of tea – so I’ll just leave you with pictures and let you come to your own conclusion.
J. Crew is running another “secret” sale. Use MUSTSHOP at checkout for an additional 30% off. There are new markdowns this morning. I liked the Hilary dress, No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Superfine Cotton, Talitha blouse, Gondola stripe skirt, Postage stamp mini in big apple, No. 2 Pencil Skirt in Terrazzo Tweed (matching jacket not yet on sale), Elinor dress in polka dot, Ella dress in rambling rose, Edie Tote, and Biennial satchel.
