To be honest, I’ve had so much luck thrifting and visiting consignment stores over the past few months that I haven’t really bothered with retail shopping. However, there was this one jacket that I kept thinking about. I’d forget about it and then suddenly I’d start obsessing over it again. It was the Boden Horseall Jacket in Leopard.
I love my thrifted leopard long coat and have been wearing it over and over again, so I thought a shorter option would be a great addition to my wardrobe. This jacket looks super adorable on the model! The reviews were really good (4 out of 5 stars) AND the jacket went on sale for $99 (original price $198), so I went ahead and placed an order.
When I ordered the jacket, they were sold out of most of the sizes except for US4 and US10. I am typically a US10 in Boden dresses, so I went for that size.
Okay, let’s check it out in-person:
Um, okay. It’s just okay. I mean it’s much more thick and fluffy than I expected. And the colors are a little more muted.
Wait, the shoulders are a little weird. Hmm… let’s check out the side view.
Um…what?! Well, this is really weird and unexpected. I look like I may be pregnant or have an unfortunate triangle shaped torso. Or um… both? It’s not flattering at all and I look like a weeble-wobble. Which is not really the look I was going for.
Luckily, Boden offers free shipping on returns because this jacket went right back in the mail. And I can easily say that this jacket won’t be haunting me anymore!
