Great looking jackets. The black one looks especially sophisticated.

Meggie, these are AWESOME! I don't know how I missed the original review! I am especially in love with the cropped version, I never even thought of cropping it, but it's fabulous!

The jacket version #3 is, together with your Octobre wide leg linen pant such a cool combo!! You look great in your new jackets.

KNOCK IT OFF, WOULD YOU? I THOUGHT I liked the ORCHID one best, and now I think I like the black one best ... until I look at the brown one! Maybe it's like a song: My favorite is whatever I last heard. At any rate, I love ALL of them! The black one is such a classic, and the orchid is trendy, and the chocolate one is somewhere in the middle. What a FANTABULOUS wardrobe you've designed! (I invented ANOTHER new word. It's a good thing we don't have spell check on here!)

I recently traced this, so it's good to know it looks so great made up. Love the faux suede, and isn't it great when you can use up someone else's stash? Congrats on your 100th review.
