I’ve been searching for a quality faux leather jacket for awhile now and happened to stumble upon this  jacket last month while shopping online. The reviews were very promising. Almost everyone raved about its quality, fit, color and affordability. I almost bought it but changed my mind at the last minute. I was worried the XS wouldn’t fit my super petite frame so I placed it in the cart and forgot about it. A couple weeks ago I got an email from Nordstrom reminding me about this jacket still in my cart. Oh the temptation! Since there were only a few XS left, I decided to go ahead and ordered this jacket in black.

I was pleasantly surprised when I finally tried it on. The quality is great for faux leather and to be honest, it looks just like real leather. Sure, it doesn’t have the same weight and sturdiness of real leather, but it’s probably the highest quality you can expect for faux leather at a $100 price point. The lining is made of polyurethane which feels soft and silky. I hate it when jackets are lined with a polyester which feels itchy and plasticy. As far as the fit, as you can see from the photos, I couldn’t been happier. The collar is a bit bent but it was due to my own fault. I forgot to hang it up. Oops! Being OCD, I went back and bought the fuchsia version. I love the boldness of the color and I can see myself wearing it with a lot of other pieces.

Thank you so much for reading!

    Hi Alina, do you mind telling me your height and weight? I know you mentioned that you bought a size xs. I’m also thinking about buying the blue xs but not sure if it’ll fit me. I’m 5′ and about 100lbs. I heard they run small. Please let me know soon. Thx!

      Hi Anne! XS should fit you perfectly. We’re about the same height and weight. If you like the fitted look then get an XS, but if you like a bit more room then get a Small instead. The length doesn’t really change from XS to Small. Hope this helps!!! <3

    You look stunning as always. Do you edit your picture because it looks bright and creamy, or just the camera itself. Any advice of setting up camera, thanks

    Wow, you need to start wearing more bold colors because this is a show stopper. Beautiful color on you, and being patent leather in that pretty sweet color, not bad at all. Gorgeous!
