    Normally I'm not a suit person. Had to have some special occasion things though and this jacket, which has matching pants and skirt, is rather striking due mostly to the material. It is thin and light but surprisingly warm. I find it hard to believe a nylon-cotton item couldn't be washed, but I'm not going to risk it. The size 4 would be like a 6 in another line--it's meant to be fairly snug and only a camisole, maybe, underneath. I got a 6 for the pants--a little looser but it isn't a stretch fabric. However the shoulders "move" well The color is hard to describe. One thing I note is that the different pieces, though obviously the same material, may have a different sheen or something--they match and they don't. Interesting garments. (except the buttons, but in a way the dull buttons set off the sheen--like another reviewer, I think I'll replace them)

    Princess seaming in the front gives this jacket a couture touch. I will be replacing the boring buttons :) At ordering, I wasn't sure about the jacket's "glossy" description, but with fitted styling, it works. Fyi, the fabric doesn't stretch, but is breathable. Definitely accents my curves! I like it as a standalone piece (kinda like a fancy top)or layered with light blouse, cami or tank. The color is as pictured, dark chocolate.
