I love it, I see many mums on the school run wearning similar ranging in age from mid twenties to early fifties. I think it's a lovely jacket, smart, will look great at work and school run etc. Good price too! grin

Love it, but too short for me...

thanks you - what do you think about the elbows though?

Lovely jacket, but I dont imagine it would suit anyone over a B-cup in the boob dept. Def wouldnt sit right over a fuller bust (trust me, Im a DD and nothing like this ever suits me : ( )

What size are you if you don't mind me asking? As its short, if you ahve big boobs or hips it might look a bit unflattering.

Not sure about the elbow pads but they are very trendy at the mo. I think I like them

What are you wearing with?

Would be frumpy with skirt unless straight I think. Good with jeans/etc.

Elbw bads funk it up = good.

Love the elbows..

Love it - wish I was slim enough to wear it!

Gillybobs Mon 10-Jan-11 21:52:08

How about a waistcoat or a tanktop instead of a jacket? They will show off your waist more and very flattering on smaller frames.
