Sooo I’ve not finished my review of this luscious jacket.
All I can say for now is damnit I want it in black too.
It’s my birthday? *Bats eyelashes* ok yeah I know it was last week but a girls got to try.
So soft and cuddly, a plethora of pockets and warming in all the right places.
It retained the heat from watching Skyfall when I legged it down to East London for Comic Con to meet the crew from Hunted.
It kept me warm and snug for the five hours I waited outside the Asylum in Birmingham until we were let in and Christian Kane could take over.
The thumb holes a genius touch to keep the hands warm on a cold winters day. The soft lining gentle and kind to ones skin the zip does up all the way up the hood to hide you if you need it.
I dont wear dresses; I haven’t the figure, but this one is comfy and classy. Great for curling up on the sofa in as i’m doing now or travelling. Comfy rolled edges. Soft stretchy thick cotton. Easy washing instructions 30deg 100% cotton
Its a good length for me (I’m nearly 5’6) despite having many curves to skip over . I don’t think I’ll need the Spandex but might need to hold my tummy in. Or wear a corset over it.
Being sleeveless I’d wear a thin torn collar tshirt underneath to dress it down or a jacket/wrap to cover my arms.
Yes it has 3 pockets. One at the waist one on the left vertically at thigh height and one at the back. Strange place but its reachable.
Enough space for lipstick phone, tickets purse maybe .
Pockets are always useful on a dress. They are relatively well disguised on seams but will see how bulgy they are when filled.
Could do with the neckline being a little lower. Let me fill my pockets. Umm that’s better. Nope not too bulgy, the pockets that is.
Things I’m not sure about: the triple scrolled arm edges is a bit Star Trek and the strange seam at the waist/hip but for its comfort factor I don’t care so much.
Overall initially very pleased. I could wear this and will. Odd thread here and there but all secure.
I think I’m going to test it out on Adam Rayner tomorrow.
*Digs out corset and kiss ass boots*

Since I’m clumsy I ordered one of these the day my i received my iPhone 5.
The idea is very simple. A very strong but thin and soft suede sleeve with a stretchy net pocket (optional) stitched onto the side for headphones/cables etc.
I went for plain sleek black but there are funky animal prints available
It has a handy loop at the end for pulling the phone out.
The net pocket seems strong and will probably last a while, though might over stretch with time; we’ll see.
Quality wise I am very happy and confident that it will last me a while and protect my phone, though of course the phone is vulnerable when out of the case. One of the options is to order a size slightly larger to take into account the bumpers that are available. I bought the larger size for this reason but I did go with a cheaper then apple 3rd party bumper and it sticks a bit as you pull it in and out of the case. I might have to invest in the Apple version. I had the Apple Bumper with my iPhone 4 and know that they are worth the extra money. I’m not sure it would work with big bulky cases from other suppliers.
The case is very good value and the delivery cost to the UK was good, I didn’t mind paying it since the case was on the cheap side. It arrived within only a few days despite coming from the states. The CS was personal and friendly via the lovely Gary
They are on Twitter and Facebook and happy to talk.
Image blatantly stolen from the SFbags.com website as I’m useless at taking them but they show the version that I purchased.
So this just arrived I’m loving it so far. I wanted a mixture between this and the sadly only available in the US Business Folio case. That one has pockets and space for a provided note pad, and the really cute polishing square.
I really wanted a case that would give a portrait stand and this certainly does that. It feels stable and secure. There is a pen/stylus loop that is annoyingly underneath so you have to take the pen out when you want to use the pad. You can fold it backwards but thats with the soft inner lining folded outside that I don’t like doing.
It’s stylish and feels secure and protective. We’ll see how it holds up over time. It is bulkier than some of the sleeves but I’m happy with that to have my portrait stand view as well as the landscape.
I bought the Targus Pen Stylus to go with it. It looks chic and sexy and the biro is lovely to write with. I don’t know where one can get refills for it., I shall find out from Targus if they sell them. The stylus nib on the end is not as good as the retractable Kensington mini one that I’ve been using for a while now. The Kensington is great to write with and useful small but like the reviewer in the link I wouldn’t trust the accompanying attach to connector holder. I’ve added a phone string clip thing to the end and now its attached to my lanyard/work security pass.
I got them both from Amazon in the end for £39. I went into John Lewis on the way home as I don’t like waiting for things but it was £44 RRP for the case and apparently they won’t’ Price Match the internet. Their loss. I went back to the stand and using the Amazon iPhone app scanned the barcode and ordered it then and there. Hah!
I chose the free 3-5 day delivery and it arrived on the second day

I was watching My Week With Marilyn yesterday in the coach down to London yesterday. She looks good on the New iPad doesn’t she? If you haven’t seen this I really recommend it. Eddie is brilliant and Michelle is practically channelling Marilyn. Kenneth loses Olivier a bit. I wasn’t very impressed with Vivian but Dame [...]
