Yes Please!!!

A denim jacket is staple piece that every woman should consider adding to her wardrobe. I purchased this one in the lighter 'medium blue' colorway (seen here) a few months ago and have worn it repeatedly ever since...LOVE it! It has literally become a 'work horse' in my wardrobe, as I wear it my with maxidresses, sleeveless dresses, skirts, and pants, as well. It really goes with pretty much anything and everything...gotta love that since it really helps to lower the CPW (Cost Per Wear) down significantly. :)

Today and tomorrow Anthropologie is offering 50% off their Sweaters and Outerwear...this little jacket (in the Dark Denim colorway above) just happens to be part of that sale and is on its way to me now! I have been enjoying my jacket in the lighter denim so much that I decided awhile ago that I would love to have it in the darker denim, too. Imagine my surprise and delight when the email announcing the sale arrived in my inbox yesterday and I discovered that the jacket is part of the sale...yay! :)

Now I really have been trying to refrain from buying multiples of the same item and admittedly already own several other denim jackets in various washes and cuts, so why make an exception this time? Well, this particular jacket is cropped, fitted, and has a completely different look and function in each colorway. The medium blue has a more casual vibe to it (looks great with my Paradisa dress like in this Polyvore set, whereas the darker blue has a bit of a 'dressier' feel (I envision wearing it with a black turtleneck, my Heather Carbon Sterling skirt, and black knee boots). Plus each jacket will create a completely different look when/if I wear them with the same outfits, not to mention this sale price is fantastic

The jacket I have now is so extremely comfortable to wear, not to mention very flattering, so I have high hopes for this newer version, as well. If you are looking for a cropped denim jacket to add to your wardrobe, then I highly recommend this one. :)

*Sizing note: The jacket is cropped and meant to be worn very fitted. I found it to be true to size and wear the XSmall, which is my 'normal' size at Anthropologie and J.Crew. Also, Anthropologie is offering Free Shipping on orders of $100+ until 12.31.11. The sweater and outerwear 50% off prices are reflected after you add the item/items to your shopping bag.

P.S. Just a reminder that J.Crew is offering 25% off and free shipping on orders of $150+. There are many, many items that are promo-priced (aka already marked-down) that also receive the extra discount making them an even better deal. I have listed the majority of them in this post.



  1. I have always loved jean jackets, and found them so versatile. Talk about multiples -- have them in distressed, medium and dark denim, plus white, khaki and bright green. They look great with so many things. Truly a classic! Enjoy yours!

  2. I have been debating getting a denim jacket. Hmmmm. This one looks like a great option, and I like the darker color. I may have to bite!

  3. Hi FFM,
    That denim jacket has great lines!
    For such a simple piece a nice one can be hard to find. I agree it needs to be cropped and fitted like this one here!
    Thanks for sharing. :)

  4. I would love to see a picture of you in it if you get a chance...I tried it on in my regular size medium and found it snug but maybe it is really supposed to be that way. I agree a good denim jacket is so crucial to the wardrobe!!

  5. I love my jean jackets as well. They are so versatile, and help dress down dressier pieces. Love this cropped one -- would be so cute with a pretty spring maxi dress.
