Wanted! Bow neck jacket by French Connection


I have a massive blind spot when it comes to French Connection. It’s like they just don’t exist for me. Their sizing is so ridiculously large that I’ve never been able to buy anything from them in my life: and trust me, I’ve tried. Every so often French Connection will come to my attention again, and I’ll take a wander through the store, hoping that things will have changed and that this time French Connection and I will be able to enter into a warm and loving relationship – or at least set aside our differences and be friends – but it never seems to work out. Their clothes can be beautiful, but they’re just too damn big, and so it is that even if had a spare £140 to buy this gorgeous bow neck jacket with, it probably wouldn’t fit me, anyway.

A girl can always dream, though, and in my dreams, this coat is pea green, and about half the price it is in real life. I like dreams. Real life sucks.

P.S. I still haven’t forgiven them for the "FCUK" brand, either.

    They’re notorious for their vanity sizing, they size everything up so it can be quite difficult to know what size to buy. I take a 10 in most stores, but I can get into a French Connection size 6, which is just ridiculous. Love this jacket, though : )
