I’ve always been on the search for a the perfect denim jacket but I have yet to find the right one. I tried on this American Eagle denim jacket 2 years ago (see here) and have always reverted back to it. I currently have a Gap girls denim (see here) and one from Old Navy (super old. see here and here). The Gap kids fits but I never liked how high the front chest pockets were and the wash was a bit too dark for me. I settled because it was only $13.99. The Old Navy is super cute but the wash is too light but I love the fit. It used to be super big on me but I shrunk the heck out of it and now it’s the perfect size.
I’ve found that most denim jackets are either too big, too boxy or the arms are super wide. Kids versions are a good option but it’s never perfect. I even tried this petite one from Loft but it still didn’t fit right. I took pictures of it to gauge the fit which I’ll share on Instagram soon.
I recently got this American Eagle one on sale for $18 online. I ordered the full price version to compare because I couldn’t tell the difference online. Mine is the “faded” version but I swear there is minimal difference in the wash. I did notice that mine had a little distressing to it which I really like. It looks like I’ve had it for years. I knew the sleeves were going to be extra long but I was willing to overlook it as long as everything else fit and the wash was right.
We need to talk about these shoes! I’m obsessed with these Nine West sandals! They are so comfortable and the size 5’s fit me perfectly! It has a perfect heel height (3.5″) and the leather is very soft. No breaking in period necessary. I would highly recommend them!
