Bob Mackie's Santa Fe Dream Embroidered 3/4 Sleeve Jacket
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.
Ordered the denim and couldn't wait to get it out of the package. The fit is perfect and love, love, love the embroidery. The colors are not vibrant and will go with anything. Don't agree with the other reviewers, but can't please everyone. I wish I could afford to buy it in another color like black. I will have this for many years and wear it with my turquoise jewelry. Thanks again Bob for a winner.
Lookout ,Ole' Mackie is Back!
This jacket is a refreshing change from the usual, boring, denim fashion statement top. Mature women, and the fashion-savvy young, alike, will love the details and variety of colorways. A sure-fire compliment catcher. By, the way, Bob, you're not old, just seasoned.
Yes and no
I wanted to love this jacket. Got the black because I thought the design would pop with so many colors and easy to coordinate. The embroidery was not as vibrant as I expected and if you wear it open it hangs funny around the collar. I will have to wear a turtle neck or a scarf with a crew neck. It smelled awful, so left it outside all day, improved. Now to get out the wrinkles. Why am I keeping it? I still like the design and can make it work, besides, just too much trouble to return. I like bright and different clothes. This IS different, just not as bright as I like.
Nice, But Not Great!
The brown is a good color and the embroidery is very attractive. I do not like the very stiff fabric and it arrived wrinkled. Seems to run a bit smaller than other Bob M. jackets that I own.
Stiff as a board and those sleeves!
This jacket would have been so much nicer if it were just a bit softer but, to me, the worst part is those sleeves! Those wide 3/4 length sleeves give the whole jacket such a matronly look! If they were just closer fitted to the arms, the jacket would look younger and fresher as opposed to something my mother would wear. Going back.
i bought two of theses and both are beautiful they are the best buy everl
I liked the jacket, but it was shorter in the back so it didn't hang right. Also, it's more boxy in person than it looks on the models or the picture on QVC.Com. It's a little busy, but I thought after I received it I would like all the design work on the jacket. I just didn't like it enough to keep it. Sending it back.
I can't believe I haven't written a review on this jacket previously because I own four of them and it's one of my all-time favorite Q purchases. I just got the teal which is my new favorite, wore it today and everyone was agog over it. I have plenty of eye-popping turquoise jewelry to set these jackets off, although they also look smashing with plain silver. The fabric has a lot of body and is a little stiff at first but softens with wear and washing. I wouldn't mind if they were a little longer as it seems all my shirts peek out at the bottom. The jacket itself is cut generously but is not hugely oversize. I live in the Southwest and this is perfect for my lifestyle and the climate.
Ordered the denim in small. Good fit. Love the vibrant colors and theme. Good weight fabric, very comfortable. Another Bob Mackie beauty!
LOVE THE JACKET
Giving it 4 stars because the center back length on the XL is 26", not 27-1/2" as listed in description. I was counting on the extra 1-1/2 " to fully cover my rear. However, I like the jacket sooo much I am keeping it and may reorder in another color at a later date.
