The Heimstone Jacket

3113436282_e73b305943_o[1]
jacket: Heimstone
dress: Topshop
sweater: vintage
wool tights: Mastermind
boot: vintage (I'm sort of wishing I hadn't sold these!)
purse: vintage

I was thrilled to be asked to take part in the Modepass traveling jacket project. I had worked with Beth on a similar project and knew how much fun it was to see how different people would style the same piece of clothing. When it was my turn to wear the jacket I knew I wanted to pair it with a feminine dress to contrast its structured military style. My inspiration came from the colorful leaves that were still changing and blanketing the ground as they fell from the trees. It also happened to be freezing cold that day so a lot of layers were in order. I stuck with an autumn color palette and piled on a sweater and wool tights. Tomorrow the jacket travels all the way to Punky B.

I love everything about your outfit. The boots and the jacket stand out (Aww, too bad you sold the boots)! You look like a bee bathing in a honey heaven with those beautiful fallen leaves!

Sally Jane said...

Thanks everyone!

athena: Wow! That's quite a vision.

Q's Daydream: Thanks! I rarely reach for this dress in my closet but when I do, I always wonder why I don't wear it more often.

Elizabeth & E: Thanks! I was a bit obsessed with those gingko leaves when they started to fall.

Ramona West: Thanks! It's sort of a long story about the tights... The store where I used to work in LA gave out store credit every year for the holidays. It was a super expensive boutique and the only time I could ever afford to buy anything was with my store credit. So, I got the tights there. The store is called Maxfield and the tights are by Mastermind (a Japanese designer). I think they retailed for about $180.

If that jacket ever came to me, I would probably kidnap it, move to a far away country, and change my name.

Thanks so much everyone for all of your sweet comments.

copperoranges: I got these tights at a store where I used to work in LA. I've never seen any this thick anywhere else. I wish I had!

Gingko trees are my favorite tree!! You look absolutely gorgeous sitting in the fallen leaves. I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season, peace and love.

When I saw your pic, I let out a sigh and started melting. Brown is my favorite color, and your picture shows why. I live in a tropical country, so that wearing that wouldn't be appropriate here (unless you wanted to get looks). Your outfit makes me wish we had fall here.
