Where can I choose the rating "spectacular review?!" This is so well thought out and beautifully executed, and I'm so impressed with the slim Armani-like fit you achieved. And no animals were harmed! I love that part of it. The shoulder line is perfect. Everything is perfect. Congratulations and good luck on the Threads contest. I'm heading over there now to cast my vote.

Nancy, This is the most amazing review of a fabulous jacket. Surely, you will win this contest. I will vote and vote again. Your pictures are gorgeous, of you in all of your creations. I don't see the pear shape -- You look sleek, thin, and stylish. Surely your gest about your age! Will watch for the other reviews.

Wow, Nancy. I can see why you were picked as one of the contestants in the Threads Contest. Fabulous work and on such a miniscule budget!

This jacket (and your whole ensemble) is amazing! I absolutely love your combination of faux persian lamb and leopard. It fits you perfectly! Your review is fantastic! Congratulations on being a finalist in the Threads competition, and good luck.

Thank you for your kind and generous comments (and your votes, too!) Pieraci2, I'm working on my review of the Gucci hobo bag right now. In fact, a few minutes ago, I somehow managed to push the wrong button, which accidently sent this review back up to the top of the Gallery, and now I can't get it back down to its proper spot, one row down on the page. I apologize for this error. I think it happened because I had both reviews open at the same time and was switching back and forth between them. Without thinking, I inadvertently updated the wrong review. But as they say, to err is human, to really screw up takes a computer!

Your coat is gorgeous as is the whole outfit. The collar and bag just sets it off. I admire you for taking your ufo and redesigning it to Threads Contest status. This is a great outfit and hopefully it will inspire me to use my long ago purchase of 'Persian Faux Fur!'
