Joan Rivers Touch of Sparkle Sequin Blazer
Even Liberace Would Wince At This
Beautifully made jacket that looks like a costume when you put it on. Maybe if you're a performer it would work but for more ordinary lives, well, I couldn't think of a single place I could ever wear it. Or want to.
Very High Style!
I have this jacket in size small and the pewter color. It fit perfectly and is so well made. Some reviews criticized the the chiffon trim. I found it very high style. If you shop at Barney's, you will find this on apparel priced way over $1,000.00. It also does not rub on your body or any other fabric. This is a real opportunity to buy a great jacket to wear for the holidays or wear with a white shirt and jeans. Thanks Joan Rivers!
I had wanted a black blazer, however, QVC was out of my size. So, I ordered the Pewter. It is beautiful.
Not. A good purchase
I think anyone buying this jacket would be pleased with its looks and fit,but should know
That anything you wear under it will be ruined,
The inside sequins will snag and mutilate completely ruining what you are wearing underneath,I found out only by wearing i. If I could return I would,
I ordered this blazer after reading many comments and decided to take a chance, I needed it for a special event. I wear anywhere from a large XL to a small 2X. Ordered the gray in a 1x which is what I wear most often, and even tough I had read about the gray 'trim' when I put it on I thought oh no, the lining is torn and raggedy and hanging out the sleeves! Finally I realized it was the sheer 'trim'. oh my. Tacky, tacky. Still it was not as noticeable at the lapels and time was getting short to find something else. It was snug so I called to order a bigger size and figured I'd sew the 'trim up inside the sleeves & lapel. The only color left in 2X was the blue so I reluctantly ordered it and have to say that of the two, the blue is much more subtle and beautiful- almost blue-black. The pewter color is very in-your-face. and not slimming. The blue would have looked great on my black dress except it was HUGE compared to the 1X. So, they are both going back. Joan can do better than this cheesy looking 'trim" which was not even the same width on the lapel, parts were narrow, then wider, not sewn evenly.
Not so great quality
I was excited to order this jacket, but very disappointed when I saw it. The quality was quite poor. It has a cheaper look than cheaper ones sold in other stores. It also had a sheer border which cheapened the look even more. I expect more from Joan Rivers.
I would always recommend Quacker Factory for price and quality.
Fabulous, lovely blazer!
I'm a empty-nester who dresses stylishly. Am 5 ft 61/2 inches, 145 lbs on small frame. My arms are long and thin but have 36D bust. I bought the small and it fits perfectly. Nicely shaped at waist but not tight. Hides my mommy-pooch. Looks much more expensive than it was. I would have paid $200 for it! Looks like Nieman Marcus stuff I buy. BUY it!!! It does not itch me at all. I wore it with dressy black jeans to the Symphony and just sparkled for the holidays. Love Joan's stuff for us non-petites tho her cropped jackets are too short for middle aged ladies over 5'6". Need more jackets at least 25 inches long, please! Pints and colors would be great.
I ordered both the brown and the navy in my size M. But both are not made the same way!!! The brown color looks spectacular but it isnt well made, looks cheap made. Fits tight and the sleeves are very tight and inside its full of sewn wrinkles and loose threads, crooked seams. The navy is very well done. Fits perfect, everything is well sewn. The inside is also very well done. I will keep both because I love the brown but would like it done like the navy. I think the jackets were manufactured by different Producer. But where is the Qualitycontrol?
sleeves to long
alland all not a bad jacket, a little itchy, my biggest complaintis that the sleeves are way to long, would of been better in a 3/4sleeve! had to send back.
Wearing this for New Year's Eve!!!!
I LOVE this jacket..........it is NOT flimsy as previous mentioned.....rather lightweight, which is perfect to wear over a tank for a night out! I actually love the trim because it makes it more trendy!
I will be wearing this jacket as I ring in the New Year!
The jacket was nice but that trim was awful ..I really thought I had received a defective jacket...if they had left that trim off I would have kept it but very sloppy looking for an elegant jacket...let me know when the trim comes off...
DON'T LISTEN TO BAD REVIEWS
i ORDERED THE JACKET AND THEN READ SOME REVIEWS, SOME WERE NOT GOOD, THOUGHT i WOULD NEED TO RETURN IT, IT WAS DELIVERED AND WHEN i TRIED IT ON i WAS THRILLED WITH IT, WELL MADE, GREAT FIT, REALLY LOVE IT.
