Okay, so I'm in love with Ulla's Silver Jewel Jacket (#15321.) It's dramatic, contemporary and ageless. But it's more than that for me as a woman who wears plus size, this jacket is a microcosm of my own fashion evolution imperatives.
Mademoiselle Chanel's stunning comeback in the '50s reminds us of the powerful quality of fabric with buckled surface for flattering a woman's shape. The fabric of this jacket, humbly 100% polyester, is pure genius, because it:
* is soft to the touch but firm enough to define the shoulders
* shapes the torso
* smooths over anything that's not smooth
* provides complete ease of movement
* is richly textured and embellished, and
* is bulk free
The huge, faceted stones provide great juxtaposition to the smart simplicity of the cut of the jacket. This jacket is a plus size celebration of what is timeless and chic. It reminds us that if Chanel isn't thinking of us; Ulla is.
I'd love to hear your favorite Ulla picks for what is timeless and chic.
