Fit Review Friday! Bold Move Jacket, Align Crop Spanish Oak, Hooded Define Jacket Nulu

March 28, 2019



Happy Friday everyone! I had this post planned since Monday and what do you know, the Bold Move Jacket just hit WMTM for $79. 

For reference I'm 4 feet 11 inches tall and typically a size 4 in Lululemon tops and bottoms.


(on WMTM $79)


I fit a size 4 in Define Jackets and this one fits similar. I would say it is true to size. The fabric is Nulu which means it feels like butter. It is super soft. The ruffles make the jacket an interesting combination of feminine yet structured. It almost reminds me of a Napoleonic military jacket if the ruffles were a contrasting color. I really love the color antique bark and I'm quite tempted to re-order this jacket at the sale price. 


This jacket hits right at the hips. I do have one issue with this jacket, the sleeve length. Sometimes I can get away with a longer sleeve length but in this case, I think there's too much extra fabric bunched up around my wrists. This jacket does have thumbholes. There is the option to have the sleeves shortened, but then you lose the thumbholes. I do find this jacket to be fitted throughout and quite flattering. Despite the long sleeves, I do feel this jacket is petite friendly. 


The pockets are hidden on the side seam.

The back of the jacket flares out when left unzipped. Pretty!


The inside lining has mesh going around the outside of the jacket and the middle is the smooth Nulux fabric. Overall, a very nice jacket for spring. I think it's worth it for $79 if you do not mind the sleeves being too long. 


I also wanted to show some better photos of my Hooded Define Jacket. This jacket runs very small, and it's the only time I've ever been a size 6 in tops. Also wearing Align Crops in spanish oak.


Also wanted to share my latest handbag score. A vintage Fendi Baby Spy in purple! I am so stoked to  find this bag in mint condition.


I've been itching to add another pair to my collection of Align Crops. Spanish oak looks more pink online, but in person it actually looks more nude. I am going to return these because the color is too nude for my tastes.


Also, you'll notice that the length is now 21 inches long which means it doesn't fit the way it should. It flares out a bit at the ankles and I had to cuff them about four inches for them to fit my calves. I might be able to get away with hemming them three inches shorter, but I'm not 100% sure.

 
Wish they still made these in the 19 inch length.

These are opaque for me. 100%

At this length, they're a bit too short?

That's it for me! What are your plans this weekend? I'm going to see Dumbo! I'm so excited. I loved that movie as a child. I expect to be crying throughout the movie. Will be bringing a box of tissues for sure!

  1. Thanks so much for the review for the Bold Move Jacket! I love the antique bark color on you, and despite the sleeve length, I think that jacket is a keeper. I've got one ordered for myself already. I think if you got the Align Crops hemmed to where you had them folded up, it would be a cute length for summer.

    1. Those are Allbirds. They run small, I would suggest sizing up. I have a couple of reviews on these sneakers on my blog as well. Just do a search for Allbirds. =)

  3. Hi there! How do you feel about the hooded define jacket in Nulu? I keep reading reviews about the pilling and was worried about paying so much for something that will start looking old right away. But I it looks so so pretty. How is it holding up for you?

    1. I've only had it for a short time, and only wore it twice so far, it's still kind of cold in Atlanta. But now that it is warming up a little bit I'll be using it more. I did consider the pilling reviews which is why I went for the print. It will mask most of pilling. If you're going with a solid color, it's likely to show some pilling.

  5. I was interested in the Bold Move Jacket but knew it would be too short for my liking. Love the pleating in the front which makes the jacket very feminine and interesting. However, there are comments that the material puff up around the chest area when the jacket is unzipped, and I can see that on your first picture. Other than that and the extra long sleeves, it looks very nice on you and Antique Bark is an amazing color.

    I love Align Crops and am waiting for a nice print. I only got them in printed designs to mask possible pillings. Too bad Spanish Rose didn’t work for you, and I would prefer it to be more pink than nude as well.

    Thanks for the reviews!

    1. The Bold Move Jacket is very unique, I didn't mind the puffed up material when unzipped, but I think it's personal preference. Some people love it, some people hate it. I think as long as you wear it with confidence, that's pretty much all that matters.

      I am holding off a pair of Align Crops for this Friday's post. It's a printed one and I think I'm going to keep them!
