I found it in a magazine...

Have you ever seen something in a magazine that you just loved, only to be disappointed with the price or because you had no idea of where to purchase it? I was flipping through my REDBOOK magazine and fell in love with this jacket. It was $72.00 but there are so many ways you can wear it that I figured I could justify the price.

I was surprised to find it is from Sears. It's part of their new UK Fashion Connection line. I don't know about you but the only thing I think about purchasing from Sears is appliances. I found it on line and on sale for $42.99! It comes in black and tan. I wanted the tan but the sizes went from 2 and skipped to 8. I figured the 2 would be too small because I want to layer it and the 8 would be way too big. I have never purchased anything from the UK Fashion Connection line so I did not know if the sizing ran a little on the small/big side. I ended up calling around and found it at a mall about 45 minutes from us.

While somethings aren't as nice as they look in a magazine, I wasn't disappointed with the jacket. It's well made. Fern and I each got one. We have a lot of the same clothes because we like the same things but we don't wear them at the same time. We have come close a few times. I don't know how many time one of us has said "I was going to wear that today but changed my mind." I did end up getting the size 2. Have you ever found something in a magazine you just had to have?

Where can I order your size 2? I'd love to get THAT from a magazine! LOL!

I have actually found a lot of cute clothes at Sears over the years though it can be hit and miss. Sometimes they have a cute line where I like MOST of the items and other times- nothin~
