WIW: To play with my new jacket

So, I totally forgot that today my jacket from the sale was arriving - good thing, or I would have been stalking it!  I didn't get a chance to try this on in store, and in the last hours of the sale, I made a very hasty purchase. I have broad shoulders and a large chest, and it makes jackets tricky, to say the least.  I didn't hold out much hope that it would fit, and if it did - it would probably be boxy - story of my life.

Anyway...I'm in LOVE!!! It fits perfect and is butter soft.  It's lighweight and seems like it will mold to my shape in time. It doesn't have a zipper or buttons, but it stays pretty flat and doesn't gape to the outsides of my chest. The neckline is quite flattering on me, and it's short enough to skim the top of my behind...perfect, because I DON'T need added bulk back there!

Since I was dressed casually, I grabbed the first dress from the closet (gray and black ponte peplum) and threw it on over my electric lime green tank top (Wow, adds a great pop to the gray and black! Must remember).  I threw on the questionably high peep toes (also from NAS) and the jacket.  Probably too edgy for work, but I sure love the jacket and shoes!

I have no idea what I'm smiling at all HUGE in the last pic!

    That jacket is gorgeous on you - it comes alive on you so much more than on the model.
