After a lot of browsing I decided on a jacket that looked very cool. It's called a "Zipper Shrugged Shoulder Pad PU Leather Solid Color Coat For Women", you can find it here. It's under a section called dance costumes, which I suspect might mean club wear, but it has awesome glittery things.

The package was sent fast and arrived in a little over two weeks, which I consider very reasonable. Sammydress ships from China so it's quite a long way for package to travel to Finland. My jacket was securely packed in a plastic envelope and a clear plastic bag. I paid for a tracking number but while it was activated, it never really showed where the package was, so you might want to consider if you want to spend money on it.
The size was right, which surprised me but when I checked on the site, the measurements of the large size do match the jacket. I could have fit a medium, but the main problem area would be the sleeves. Then again shortening them would not be a big deal.
The jacket came with a matching belt which was in the same clear bag, so I assume it's a set with the jacket. It's just a strip of the same material with a velcro closing. It's not listed on the site as a part of the jacket and not seen on the model either.
The jacket is made of thin faux leather but the material looks and feels nice. The shoulders have a little foam padding in the tips to keep the shape. The collar needs some coercing to stay in the right place, the right side was bend a little in the package but it looks like it settles nicely when you keep it under some weight (like a thick book on it overnight). The triangular extensions on the sides are lined at the ends. It isn't perfect, but works for me, and I wasn't expecting superb quality for such a low price.
I did notice that the cut isn't exactly the same as on the site, mine has a different collar, but it's close enough. Also the shoulders are pointier in the shop picture, my jacket's are a bit more rounded. There's some threads sticking out, but all the seams are intact and nothing is coming loose. I suspect it's a knock-off but I couldn't find a picture of the original, so I'm not sure.
My experience with Sammydress was a good one. The jacket isn't exactly as in the pictures in the shop, but close, and seems like it's of decent quality. I thinking of ordering again because they stock these lovely black velvet versions of the spine heel shoes!
+ Low prices
+ HUGE selection
+ Fast shipping
- The website is a bit hard to navigate because of the amount of items
- High shipping fees on shoes (for my jacket the shipping was a little over 8 dollars, so for clothing it's less)
- Sizing might fool you
- The product can differ from shop pictures
