Rated 5 out of 5 by delic8rose Gorgeous Jacket That Fits
I bought this gorgeous jacket in the champagne for a Southern outdoor fall wedding.The 2-tone gold sequins on this jacket are not shiney but somewhat subdued, which gives the jacket a more sophisticated look, and I love the leaf pattern. The jacket has a pretty cream or French vanilla base color, but I did have trouble finding a tank to go with it. The one I wore didn't quite match, so it would have been nice if a matching one had been made available. I wore the jacket with a pair of brown slacks similar to the ones the model in the video is wearing. I wasn't able to purchase the Bob Mackie wide leg pants, however, because even the petite pants are 3 inches too long for me. The jacket has a forgiving fit. It says semi-fitted, but there was plenty of room for me. I'm a 1X apple shape, so I need a little extra room around the middle. Some people may find this design boxy, but, personally, I prefer this silhouette because of my shape. I am also a petite, so I appreciate the bracelet sleeves, which are long sleeves on me. I would not have bought this if it had long sleeves. I like the normal length of the jacket, too; it is not too long for a petite. The jacket is lined, has one hook and eye closure at the neck, and has small shoulder pads that help give the jacket shape and balance the waistline. They are not big 80's shoulder pads. I wish QVC would ship clothing like this that requires special care in a box instead of a plastic bag, because the mail carrier wadded my jacket into a ball and stuffed it into my mailbox on a hot day. A few of the sequins were bent, and the jacket retained alot of wrinkles that didn't fall out easily. I kept the jacket because it was so beautiful and fit so well. In fact, I liked it so well, I ordered it in the black, which was also jammed into my mailbox. The black jacket has a combination of shiney black and subdued grey sequins. It is equally stunning. I wish Bob had a pretty colored jacket, like a magenta or red, but all the colored jackets are long sleeved and wouldn't work for me. Now that it is so close to Christmas, nearly all the red items are sold out in larger sizes anyway.
Rated 1 out of 5 by RealLife101 ugh, shoulder pads
No where in the info I had on this item did it say "shoulder pads". They are not removable. Also the hook and eye closure was not the quality I expected, looked like something from doll's clothes. I was expecting one at least color coordinated with the garment and an upgrade from what this was. Third, when I moved my arms, the sequins on the sleeve caught on the sequins on the sides of the torso. It had a "crunchy" sound and likely wouldn't take long to start falling off. I don't like wearing clothes that I can't move in, so this will have to go back. It did fit as expected from the photos and models. I think this was my first Mackie, and I was looking forward to wearing it for holidays this year, so I am disappointed.

I ordered this jacket in black and also ordered Bob Mackie's black wide leg pants. I've been searching the malls for something nice to wear for an upcoming cruise and have been so disappointed in whats out there - so I figured why not try Bob Mackie. I've watched his shows, but never ordered because I couldn't believe his fashions would work for me. Boy was I wrong! Even on my size 1x, 5'5" frame the fit is spot on for both items and the look is classic! Thank you Bob Mackie!

I purchased this in black and wore it last week on a cruise. It fit true to size and was a real hit with my husband and friends. I wore it with black pants and a sequined tank but would be great with a black dress as well. I was very pleased
Rated 4 out of 5 by Imani Very Pretty.....except
I agree with all the other reviewers about this jacket. It is very pretty. My only concern is there is puckering in the middle of the back where fabric may have been stretched during stitching. I'm sure all do not have this issue. This was for a special occasion and if I noticed it, I'm sure others will as well.

So lucky to get this special Bob Mackie design from waitlist at the sale price! I may not have a star on the Hollywood boulevard, but wearing this comfortable, glamorous jacket makes me feel like I do!
This jacket has lots of sparkle, yet it is very soft and lightweight. I also like this pattern as it goes with everything. Can't wait for all those black-tie invitations because I will be ready to go in this lovely jacket.
