I want to suit those jackets, quilted or not, but they don't really work for me. I went to Zara today, bought a gorgeous necklace (which is sold out online) and tried on 2 cotton jackets in TRF. Will blog them, but they are £60 each. Bright yellow biker and aquamarine zip up. Both are really gorgeous, and being cotton, should wear well. I want one, but not sure which. I also want a white jacket, too.
Have hardly any time on MN atm, less for shopping. Just had a peek now. Am with you Eduardo, those cotton quilted jackets don't do it for me either. Can't get my head past the knitting bag look. But Zara sometimes have tight arms too, particularly the trf range.
No elastane unfortunately. I went up to a L just to get it on (the shame! I'm a 10-12 ordinarily) but either it or I is out of proportion. Nice shape and lovely print but I'll keep looking for something that fits
For really 'fashiony' things I never spend much. I bought some faux suede boots last winter green ankle ones and have been brilliant very stylish and comfy plus look great but I fear they are a one off!
Oh it's really cute - I like that Mango jacket! I don't like big sleeves, but silly to make them too narrow. Zara did that with one of their jackets last season. My arms aren't big, but the sleeves felt tight. I don't think pure woven cotton will give, unfort. Maybe if it was jersey / knitted, but it's not, is it? Any elastane in the fabric? If not, I think that's just how it is. Worth sizing up?
Re faux suede, I have some shoes in that, and find it preferable to vinyl/plastic (I never go there), but it's not ideal and it's not v durable. It's almost disposable fashion. Which sometimes has it's place (I mean, who can afford to only but top quality everything), but I try and avoid doing that. [ponce emoticon]
Hello, I tried this Mango jacket over the weekend. Lovely but the arms were ridiculously slim fitting (don't think my arms are really that chubby!?). Has anyone else tried it? As it's cotton, do you think it might give a little with wear?
i think a soft shirt is very sexy and I like that mine is sheer enough to do a double take if not pissed, but not enough to reveal flab. Also if black isnt good up to your face, you have some skin between it and your mush.
