Blouse - Ann Taylor (similar)
Jeans - NYDJ
Booties - Cole Haan
Brooch - Unknown (have had for at least a decade - similar)
I wasn't looking for a jacket like this on eBay, in fact I was looking for a sequined skirt. This showed up in the search, and I totally fell for it. I know Josephine Chaus is more of a department store career wear sort of brand, but I loved the colors, the embellishment, and the super duper low price (less than $20). It's a hair small (can't close over my bust), the shirt is a hair large (a 14 regular, last worn here), but together I think they really work nicely.  I think this jacket will also be adorable come spring - I have tried it over sheath dresses and like the effect.
This post also shows how desperately I need jeans - my size 12 NYJDs look dumpy, my 10s look like jeggings, and with my weight loss I need a lower rise.  This has been a frustrating search all fall and winter - this body is not yet made to wear jeans and trousers (or else a silhouette that flatters it is not currently popular).  I will continue to search - in fact I just ordered two pairs of denim trousers from two different retailers and hope at least one pair fits a bit - I'd be happy to have a pair altered to fit if they at least look good enough from the get-go that I would need to have them completely recreated!
