Bob Mackie's Santa Fe Dream Embroidered 3/4 Sleeve Jacket
Love this jacket. The embroidery is beautiful. So many beautiful colors. I got the olive and hope to get another color someday.
Great for casual or dressy
The first time I wore this to the theater, I got several compliments from strangers. Like all Bob's fashions, it fit perfectly. I could buy everything Bob creates.
Not for the Timid
These jackets are Bob Mackie all the way...his designs are always Statement Pieces and get attention! I bought the Spice and the Denim and enjoy both with jeans and boots. They are lighter weight than many jackets, for layering. Great for the mild Winter season in the South; and useful as a Sweater Weight garment because they fit nicely under coats while in Snow Country. It is fun to see Bob's artwork still being enjoyed by all ages. Many do not know his extensive history of dressing so many Greats, but his Wearable Art is a collectible item for me.
I didn't love this jacket. A little too much and the fit wasn't as expected. Not very flattering.
Love the design....
Love the design from about the bust up it looks beautiful but it goes downhill from there. Fabric is more then a little stiff, sizing is off, fit more like a maternity top which for me does not work. Sorry but its a return for me.
Another statement jacket from none other than Bob Mackey! I have purchased three (3) of them (Black, Purple, Denim) and absolutely love each of them! Each one of them has its own personality and I have received many compliments on each of the jackets. Keep 'em coming Bob! Just love all your things!
In Your Dreams
Ordered the brown and thought it looked so nice on the models.....BUT, received it and immediately packed it back up and sent back. I am petite and ordered Bob Mackie item before and hoped this would work....NOT!
Ordered medium...way too long and not proportioned to fit me. Packaging was great. Material was stiff and not comfortable. Would not even look nice unbuttoned and tank underneath. Something was amiss.
Sorry Bob Mackie that I am not a "Miss America"....Your items aren't made for a petite in height. My Santa Fe Dream is over.
This is a beautiful eye popping jacket...but, is too oversize. I ordered my usual size, but it was at least one or possibly two sizes too big. Also, would prefer full length sleeves. The 3/4 length did not balance out the jacket well.
I ordered this in the black to go with all my turquoise jewelry I have bought in Arizona and New Mexico. It is a fun jacket and the embroidery is just beautiful. Great job, Bob! The black is dramatic with all the colors on it and very comfy. Love the cuffs on the sleeves with all the colors. Thanks for making my closet a very fun place to be, Bob!
Artistic Expression like none other
I'v already bought three and am fighting with myself to refrain from purchasing more. The only thing holding me back is that the awe inspiring character of the embroidery, the choice of fabulous , perfect hues, the skill required to envision then carry out this art which demands the perfect choice of accessories. Bob PLEASE make us more silk tees like the ones you made for your washable suede and sweater zip jackets. I bought one in every color available in my size (even when I changed sizes). I will have those items forever, wear them each appropriate season and never tire of them.
This jacket is nearly as precious to me as your peacock sweater from the seventies I mourned when it followed one of my daughters to parts unknown never to be seen again. I may have to copy one of these motifs onto canvas, but which one? PLEASE a tee, a tank, a silk sweater? What do we put beneath this beautiful piece that doesn't lessen it ?
You bet I recommend this item! To whom? To anyone it will fit! In any color left in stock! Close examination of the embroidery will make them Mackie fans for life.
nice med weight jacket
As with most of Bob. Mackie's creations, this one delivers a lot of flair. This will be perfect on cool evenings. I bought the black with the coral and turquoise in the design. very striking. The fit (sm) perfect for me. I plan to only wear a shell underneath. I am not a small person. I have fairly broad shoulders and 38" bust. If I wanted it over a shirt, then a med would be a better size. Paired with black slacks or a dress, this is a class act.
Bob Mackie Perfection
Outstanding quality; true to size. Slimming fit makes me feel good about myself. I will be wearing this jacket for a long time. I purchased the olive for fall, but I have already worn it in July as a blouse I love it so much.
