This blue blazer is pretty, and I tried it on in the store and took it home with me. On getting home, I tried this on with a variety of pants, skirts, and tops, but ultimately it felt lackluster. It didn't really add to any of the looks, and the hook and eye closures made the jacket splay open so you could see the closures even when fastened. The jacket had gorgeous shape, but I also hated the visibility of the closures when the jacket was opened. I ended up returning this, it just wasn't versatile enough and I didn't like the closures.

better in person
I found this in store over the weekend and snatched it up for a great sale price. The color in real life (in my opinion) is much prettier than it appears online. Color looks nice with charcoal or grey pants/skirt. The fit is perfect, not too tight and not too boxy. It's professional looking (I'm wearing it with the grey exact stretch pants shown below). It also looks cute with jeans.
Yes, the color is not as bright as pictured. It is definitely more of a dusty blue color. I am glad I knew that from the other reviews. However, if you can get this on sale, it is a steal. Great fit, will not wrinkle and the fit of the sleeves and tabbed closures make it look more contemporary and off-set the dusty blue color that might make you feel like you are running for office!
I was hoping for more of a turquoise color like shown, but the actual color is more blue, which is still nice. It fits fine and has a nice feminine cut. The front didn't lie down as flat as I'd like. In fact you could see the closures. But maybe a bit of steaming or ironing cold fix that. But it was just something about it that didn't work for me. I tried it on with several of my slacks and skirts at home to see how it would look with different pieces. I wasn't impressed. No wow factor. So unfortunately I returned it.

Not as pictured
I just received this jacket and instead of being a turquoise color it is almost royal blue. It looks a little old ladyish and am not sure what sheen the only reviewer was referring to. This will be returned, big disappointment
Arite - no offense to this model, but this picture really does this beautiful jacket NO justice. It is absolutely gorgeous in person. The material has this awesome sheen/texture, and the color is gorgeous. I received numerous compliments on this jacket. I usually wear an XS up top, and the XS fit great. However, the shape is such that it would look great on any figure. Highly recommended!
