** 2013 Holiday Gift Guide Feature **
Eddie Bauer is one of those retail stores that I have been shopping at for over 30 years! I have purchased everything from women’s tops, dress slacks, vests, denim jeans, blazers to sleepwear and have never been disappointed with any of my purchases…EVER!
What do I love about women’s fashions from Eddie Bauer? Well, there is a lot! This company keeps up on fashion trends but designs those trends in a way that everyday women can wear! Their clothing is always high-quality and fits the woman’s figure correctly. They are classic, trendy and always in-fashion!
When I was asked to review a piece of outerwear from Eddie Bauer I jumped at the chance! I live in the north east and already our weather has been brutal. For the review I selected the women’s Northern Aurora Down Vest to check out for all of you. This item comes in 4 different beautiful colors (hyacinth, papaya, snow and wave) and it was really hard for me to choose which color. I finally decided on the wave which is a beautiful icy light blue.
It has a water resistant shell with a 550-fill Premium Goose Down insulation for warmth without weight or bulk. It is as light as a feather but yet it keeps you nice and warm. It has a detachable hood & ruff and has princess seams for shaping. I would say that it is semi-fitted and glides over the body nicely.
There are side drawcords so that you can adjust the fit to your individual liking and it is about 24″ long. A great length which comes to the top of the hips on me and my model (my mother) who is wearing it in the photos. One of the great things about it is that it is completely machine washable! I love easy care pieces like this!
It has two generously sized side pockets so that you can get your bare hands or gloved hands inside the pockets easily. I really appreciate the heavy-duty zipper that runs up the complete front of the vent. You can leave it unzipped, zip it halfway or zip it the whole way up.
Since my mom stinks at taking photos for me…I had her model the vest for me while I took the photos. We are built completely different but yet the vest looks beautiful on us both. Regarding sizing, I would order true-to-size. We both wear a large and it fits us both perfectly.
I absolutely LOVE this down vest from Eddie Bauer! I love it so much that I have asked hubby to buy me 2 more (in the other colors) for Christmas! It is FABULOUS!!! I want them all! If you are looking for that perfect gift for that young lady (or older lady) on your holiday list…I highly recommend this Down Vest! I give it 10 stars out of 10 stars on my rating scale!
