Juicy Couture Peplum Jacket on SmartBargains

September 22, 2010

I love peplum details so when I came across this Juicy Couture Peplum Jacket with detachable peplum I knew I had to have it. It originally retailed for $198, it's on sale at Smart Bargains for $99.99. But wait, they have a 40% off discount this week so it's now $59.98. I was about to bite the bullet but was a little put off by the $9.95 shipping (I hate paying for shipping). I googled for coupons and found this Extra 30% Off One Item offer and saved myself another $18, even better than free shipping. Total out of pocket? just under $55.


Reviews were generally positive, people seem to really like the versatility of having the option to remove the peplum skirt. One reviewer complained about the slight stiffness of the material (it's supposedly 97% cotton and 3% spandex) so we'll have to see. Juicy Couture doesn't have the greatest quality but it's also generally not terrible. Only size petite is available at this price. For those of you unfamiliar with Juicy Couture sizing, P is the smallest alphabet size. According to reviews it fits true to size.

Still on Zappos Couture for $125 so I think $55 at my size is a steal.

Other great finds that I had to let go because they weren't in my size (I hate not having small feet sometimes)

These Charles David Chalet Tall Scrunch Boot are on sale for $103.97 (eligible for the extra 30% off) but only available in size 5. Comes in blue or purple. 


I have been hunting for animal print pumps for a while now since animal print is previously uncharted territory for me. Unfortunately these are only available in 5, 5.5, and 6. Originally $110, on sale for $29.98. Extra 30% off one item is eligible for these as well.


And these Cole Haan Air Kadin Black Leather Tall Boots are only available in size 5. Originally $275, on sale for $95.98 and eligible for extra 30% off. I wonder what would happen if I try to squeeze my 6.5/7 feet into them.

These boots supposedly come with "padded footbed with Nike Air® technology"...don't they sound and look incredibly comfortable. :( Mom, why did you give me big feet?

I have been brainstorming ideas for the second Petite Fashion Challenge and actually took some pictures of a few different outfits this week. I am feeling uninspired in my outfit choices so I am hoping this challenge will help me push through this slump. I can't wait to read everyone's posts though, the last (and first ever) petite fashion challenge had some really unorthodox choices and I loved it.

  1. Awww, really? I would want to keep the peplum detailing of the blazer. Only $55? That's over 70% off of the original price! I am not a huge fan of Juicy Couture clothing, I do agree with you that the quality doesn't match their high prices. However, it's so cute enough to not resist....

  2. I google coupon codes all the time too (retailmenot anyone?)! And ditto.. $10 S&H?!? No way Jose!

    Size P in Juicy fits my 4'11" skinny sis, so I do agree with reviewers that it fits true to size.

    While Juicy may not have best quality, their designs are unique and it's hard to find cheaper replicas of a lot of their pieces. Wish I could afford to shop that brand!

  3. Hanna - I love the peplum detailing as well...but I think if you removed it you can try to pass it off as a new article of clothing. :)

    Sophia - I LOVE (big emphasis on love) retailmenot. I don't oppose to paying money for things but I hate paying more than is necessary...and that is why retailmenot and I are best friends. I have noticed that some retailers request that retailmenot disable coupons for their website though which irks me.

    And I agree that Juicy, while overpriced for the qaulity, is actually somewhat affordable considering that Juicy knockoffs are not much cheaper. I have a few JC dresses and jackets that are of decent quality and design. I sometimes browse ebay for small-sized items. You can probably fit comfortably in their junior(aka kids) line. I do have to warn you that the bustline on their kid stuff looks odd on me though but you are much thinner so maybe you won't have my problem. :)

  4. Elle-- I like the Juicy peplum jacket...it's cute!! I normally wear a P in juicy and its not tight or loose (well maybe sometimes loose).

    I love the animal print pumps! I think i might be obsessed with animal print items. I been on the look out for a cute animal print faux fur coat...I saw on on top top and fp and maybe asos...not sure if I wanna spend $$$ on something trendy.

    Anyway I love your taste in shoes, if only I could get my hands on those animal print pumps :(...they're so fierce...

  8. Awesome deal! I detest paying for shipping too, since things seldom fit and I return a lot and shipping is never refundable. And yay for finding coupons that stack! :) What size shoes do you wear? I'm a 5.5/6, but sometimes I try to squeeze into size 5 too if there's a good deal :P

  9. that's awesome that you found all those things on sale. I usually try not to buy things on regular price anymore because I feel like a sucker when it goes on sale in a few months! the jacket is really nice, and $55 is such a steal for it
