I also like that D&C blazer! I have my eye on a couple of similar jackets from Hal Rubenstein/HSN. Leather is something I must try on & fit is key. If the skirt is too tight it will show wrinkles; better if it's a bit larger than too tight. I've had to return/exchange several leather jackets because of fit across the chest & shoulders. Too loose, it looks frumpy, too tight and it's uncomfortable. Plus I want to zip or button a jacket and have a proper fit open or closed. So far, I've had good results with my GILI apparel & handbag purchases, including the sleeveless leather top with the gold back zipper i purchased earlier this year. It's one of my favorite leather tops, and the fit is perfect-no returns required. I follow the garment sizing, so hope the skirt works! Good luck with your purchases/fit. I'm hoping for the best!!!

Good luck to you as well! Smiley Happy sometimes even handbags get returned, so I guess it's the risk I'm willing to take for pieces which cannot be found somewhere else.... I got 2 leather jackets from Wilson Leather so I know exactly what you mean about the fit. I normally wear M but had to get L for those jackets....so we'll see what happens this time... reviews are divided....

I missed the military coat again. I can kick myself. I got the new GILI shrug, I love them and they are not easy to find. I missed out on the Issac sweater in pink.

I think the coat is coming up later... it wasn't sold yet.... and I agree about the shrug!

Don't watch PMS, but did review the items........YUCK! Nothing of interest at all-Looks like bargain basement apparel to me. I saw Lisa for a second the other day as I was channel surfing. She was in a leather skirt hat resembled vinyl. Is this a GILI item?

Isaac's sweater was lovely and I adore the ballet flats.

Yes, the coat is not up yet & I don't think she said the sale date nor if there are other colors-navy would be fab. I can't recall which item they were promoting on the show tonight when Kate was wearing the coat, but it was in the beginning of the show. Is there a video? The new earings will be available on Wed via a Facebook link from her page, and a matching pendant on friday. The new leather jacket will be up on friday, and I think she said another week for the new handbag. Please post your review of the shrug.

Yes, leather can be "hot"to wear. I have many items-jackets, pants, leggings, skirts, tops and love wearing it. The comfort factor is why it's so popular to wear a mixed media leather design with ponte or other types of knit. I would never wear 75% or more of the apparel QVC sells. The naysayers/haters of GILI & Lisa have vastly different style that I find very unattractive. That includes retailers like JJill-how ugly and ordinary can it get? You know what I mean...so why would I or anyone take anything they say with any credibility. It has no bearing or impact on me with the exception of a good belly laugh. Like little trolls lurking and waiting for Lisa's appearances. Hating on her yet watching/stalking her every move. LOL LOL LOL

Lol. Yeah.... I don't get some of those hateful comments either..... but some actually mentioned the skirt being narrow and I think it won't look good in size 10 or larger....maybe after I lose another 20 lbs or more Smiley Wink in the meantime, I should stick with the A-line skirts.....
