A202377 - Luxe Rachel Zoe Dolman Sleeve Cocoon Knit Sweater
Too Crazy For Me!
This is like a long heavy knitted tube with a slit in the middle of one side to put your arms in. When you stretch out your arms you will need a runway and control tower clearance for takeoff. Makes you look silly, got it last night, could not wait for the post office to open. Check yours over, this one was defective loose loops along with it's other attributes. A real winner Rachel! NOT!!!! ( I give it 0 stars, but I had to pick 1 in the options meaning poor)
I think someone returned one of these recently because suddenly one was available and so I grabbed it. It was one size up from my usual size and after reading the reviews I was confident that it would work. And it does.
This is super easy to put on, ladies note you just slip your arms in like a jacket-don't try putting anything over your head.
I wish there were more colors.
Rachael I took off a star because the gold thread does not seem intended for clothing. It is scratchy on the skin.... I'm seriously hoping this wont be an issue for me when it gets warmer. Other than that, its perfect so I am taking the gamble on the comfort...
Could have been perfect
This is a great idea that just needed some tweaking. I wear a size 6 or 8 in tops. In tee shirts and most Jones New York or Ralph Lauren blouses and sweaters I am a size small - sometimes a medium. I ordered a large in this because of the reviews and concern about being able to get into it. It IS a puzzle. But once on, it fit great. Having watched the video and read reviews, I first tried to put it on with my arms over my head. But the opening is barely as wide as the stretch from one of my armpits to the other. If you try to get into this with it open evenly on the top of the garment, you'll never get in. You have to kind of drop the inside edge of the opening down quite a bit lower than the outside edge. Then you can put one arm in like a sweater. I had to put the other arm over my head to get it into the other sleeve. The the whole back of the sweater got tangled in itself. Once I was able to pull that down, the whole thing went on fine. I got the cream color and, once it was on, I love it! Surprisingly, I decided to keep it because I think it will be amazing with jeans to go to dinner, or even as a wrap at a wedding - or anything in between. The problem that others may not find worth the battle is that you can't put it on and off like a wrap or a sweater. I believe once it's on, it has to stay on. But it is versatile and classy enough that, because it only took me two tries to get it on, I think it's worth the effort. I probably would not have spent this money on it in a store - even at the lunchtime special price. But because I love the idea of it being so different and didn't want the hassle of sending it back, I will keep it - and probably love it. I must say I am buying less and less at QVC because of the ridiculous shipping prices. With Amazon, Zappos, Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus shipping free, I can't justify the shipping at QVC anymore. Are you listening??
Love, love, love this sweater!
I listened to the reviews and sized up. These fit perfectly! I got one in each color and am so happy I did. They are absolutely lovely and extremely cozy.
We Need These In X Small
If you're a smaller size at all you need an X Small so you aren't overwhelmed. Rachel, With all the sleeveless tops out there if you don't want to cover them up this is the only way to go. Would love to see the white with white lurex thread for us sterling girls! More Please!!!
I am in love- perfect for the holidays clear thru till summer! I love the gold threading it it subtle, but shimmery. The waffle pattern is great and I think will help from any snagging of the thinner weave underneath. I am wearing it now and it is going in the suitcase to both LA and NY this month. I am more busty than most women so I ordered a 1x which was good so the edges dont cut in under my arms. length is perfect. Jeans and Leopard Heels with sequins in LA. Leggings, knee high boots, and a turtle neck in NY! It is Hand wash so be aware of that!!
I was so excited and curious to see how this would actually look like and fit. It is GORGEOUS! I love the fit, the style, the color. EVERYTHING!! THe gold flecks add the perfect shimmer. The cut and design are fabulous. I can't wait to show it off. Definitely worth the price. Could even wrap it around your neck as a scarf if needed. :)
*Now I'm thinking of getting it in black too!
Sophisticated style -- it's a wrap!
I'm so glad I took a chance and ordered this Cocoon Sweater the first time I saw it. I've worn it a dozen times with everything from a simple LBD to an evening gown and receive so many compliments from men and women. "It's a Rachel Zoe" I tell them demurely, and they assume I paid hundreds of dollars at a chi-chi store.
I appreciate how it stays on all evening, unlike my other scarves, shawls and wraps. It provides wonderful coverage (for those of us without perfectly toned arms and backs) and gives just enough warmth. The subtle metallic sparkle is perfect for evening, but suitable for a daytime event.
Did I mention I really like it?
Way Too Snug in Shoulders
I love, love, love Rachel Zoe and her style and fashion are always an inspiration to me so I was reallllly excited to receive my sweater in the mail. But then soooo sad - no way for it to fit comfortably - hole is way too tight and up in the armpits. I read previous reviews and had ordered a size larger then my normal size just to be safe, but no luck. The fabric is very pretty and the styling is nice.
I have to say with so many sites (including Nordstrom) offering free shipping both ways it seems archaic to be paying postage coming and going. I spent $14 postage on something that - in my mind - was defective. I don't think I will order from QVC again.
Black is Stunning! Cream is Not!
Purchased this in the black which is absolutely stunning. The color and design of this sweater screams class. It's perfect for me because of the silver metallic throughout as I prefer and wear silver jewelry. I was so taken by this cocoon sweater that I also ordered in the cream color. What a disappointment when it arrived. The color has a gray tinge to it (possibly due to the gold metallic threads throughout ) making it look worn and dirty. The cream is on its way back to QVC. The black is a keeper and is gorgeous. What a statement piece!
Lots of Trial & Error
This one was a little difficult to size. Got the small, returned it; got the medium;
returned it; got the large---it fits great! If you have any width to your shoulders;
if you are 5 6" or more and wear a size 8, buy the large. It fits great and doesn't
bind on your shoulders. Easy to get on and so many compliments.
Purchased the cream - the little bit of glitter is flattering. Wanted to love it, but the sweater is heavier than I expected. Even with the open weave it is warm. No problem with putting it on and the sweater does not add any bulk.
