Yes, It's Dolce Gabanna

Joan's jacket is almost a direct knock off, including the polka dot on the cuff, which can be turned down. But I'm sure all you fashion icons who only buy designer and despise the Q and ridicule all who shop here already knew this. Haven't you ordered one of each color? This should be just what you've been waiting for.

It's hard to think that D&G would create such an ugly garment and if they did I would still dislike and say it was ugly. This isn't a matter of status seeking folks disliking a QVC item just because it's QVC. Poor design is just that, poor design... no matter who makes it.

I sure would like to see the D&G piece, can someone post a photo of it? D&G usually has gorgeous things and most if their stuff is sadly over priced for my budget, but if money was no concern I can think of lots of their stuff I would love to have.

That flower jacket? I love it. Its just that Joan's jackets are too short waisted for me.

this DandG is from 2010

I like that one, actually (the D and G in Sunshine's photo above) ... it's not screaming in my face, and the black bordering gives your eyes a chance to rest.

Both remind me of some furniture I used to have, got tired, and got rid of.

The D&G isn't quite so bad...I agree that the black border helps.

D&G goes one better -- a jacket with a tomato all over print. Much more far out than Joan's and nore that 20 times the price.

I don't like the D&G and I don't like Joan's. Actually I am not a floral person at all.

...maybe they've already ordered their D&G jackets...LOL Actially, I like the D&G style better than Joan's jacket but both jackets are still to "flowery" for me. I'm just not a lover of prints.

Hate the TSV jacket.

Oddly, I like the same print in her sheath dress. Fully lined for under $50.00. A really good deal.

D&G jacket looks similar, but price $1237.41 with 40% off

Wow Malin thanks for the link! It sure looks like Joans jacket!

Love my "Pure Michigan"

The D&G jacket no doubt "inspired" Joan's jacket. But look at the print of the original. MANY more screens were used.

I hated the jacket when I saw the picture of it, but the more I look at the red and black version, the more it is kind of growing on me. I don't have any of Joan's clothes; I don't own hardly any QVC clothes except for a few Marc Bouwer cardigans and the recently bought Susan Graver striped top that was just on.

This being said, I don't know how the jacket would fit, and am not that interested in a $7 charge to try it on if it has to go back.

I really like that D&G suit in the cream and pink. The colors are softer. The print is not all over but leaves quite a bit of the cream background. The black breaks the floral and stops you from looking like a walking rose bush. quite lovely. Last edited on 2/20/2013

I like the dress too and I thought Suzanne looked good it in last night with the matching jacket.

Now this is a D & G jacket I might consider.

whoooaaa... re that 2010 D&G floral... Think I wuz about 12 yrs ahead of them (and a lot less $$$ 'behind' them, no doubt). .....

Anyone recall the old Maggie Sweet line from HSN back in the day? I once bought an MS jacket --- slightly-draped-front/no-fasteners, otherwise simply-styled, longsleeved --- in a floral much like that one, except on black background.

Anyway, I really enjoyed it. For a while. Tend to get tired of floral prints faster than solids, or narrow stripes, or even small abstract prints. Same in house-decorating :(

But ... neither that jacket nor the 2010 D&G are what I'd consider horrendously / impossibly huge. Even though ANY entirely-floral top+bottom (or dress) just isn't for me. Too short.
