One of the good things about coming back from holidays (OK, possibly the only good thing) is finding that my Black Friday goodies have arrived.
I got this knit jacket from Free People. I was going to post this as a keep or return but I think I have decided to keep it. It is a military style knit jacket (tick) in a wine colour (tick, tick). My only hesitation is the ruffles. I am not a ruffles/peplum sort of a girl. I admire that look on others but it generally feels too soft and romantic for me. But never say never, right? I feel like I can do this! Am I right to keep it?

It is now even more heavily discounted, and I thought that it may be of interest to others in the forum. Tanya springs to mind It is very comfortable, quite substantial and also comes in black.

I tried to create a Find but the FP website would not cooperate, possibly because I am in Australia. Here is a link:

(PS It was 37 degrees when I tried this on so please excuse the sportskirt and summer hair. The last pic shows the jacket with an Alice and Olivia skirt that I got for a steal ($75) and am definitely keeping. The multi colour underlay is more obvious in person and gives it an interesting twist on a standard black midi pencil skirt, I think. I need to fix the lining at the hem!)
