This sweater went back to asos.com because the rainbow motif is too much like a nursery logo. Also I feel like the grey sweatshirt is done. Fine if you’ve got one already, but buy a brand new one? Nah.
I loved the idea of this jacket so much but in the end the material was too stiff and bulky and the jacket wasn’t as long as I’d like. A 12 was also too small. If I pass buy an H&M soon I might dive it to see if a 14 isn’t more hospitable, but only if I remember, which I probably won’t.
I kept the H&M tencel khaki shirt, which is absolutely brilliant and the rainbow clutch bag.
A 50% hit rate on internet shopping is about right.
Just browsing and found this and randomly thought of you… Mango Outlet is great. http://www.mangooutlet.com/GB/p0/women/spring-2016/military-style-jacket/?id=41065537_37&n=1&s=avance&ident=0__0_1452803293810&ts=1452803293810&p=118&page=7
Thank you for the tip on the H&M shirt – it arrived yesterday and is BRILLIANT. And nice and long so it sort of skims over my muffin top bits. Only downside is the sleeves are a tad too tight (or my forearms are too fat) to manage the J Crew sleeve folding trick on it. Otherwise, perfect.
no it’s not you the sleeves ARE too tight. just roll as normal xx

I also returned the ASOS rainbow sweatshirt, as rainbow logo seemed to cling to my boobs in a very unflattering manner.
