Monster Jackets

There are some statement jackets in Modern Gypsy’s Fashion Monster collection. For example, this jacket from the Zhora pants outfit is an amazing piece of construction with shoulders that could conquer the universe if they set themselves to the task. Coincidentally, Newreem Waffles styled the same two jackets in her blog today, too – in a very different way, demonstrating how versatile these jackets are.

The jacket that comes with the powerful Hecate leather dress makes and equally strong statement – one of surprise and delight at seeing such a jacket chosen for such a noir dress. After all, when you hear black leather dress, a houndstooth wool jacket is not what pops into mind, but then Hecate is a dress of surprises.

The Zhora outfit out of the store is actually a pantset with tight leggings and a sheer top all dominated by the powerful jacket.

I wanted to wear it with a dress that was just as strong as the jacket so I paired it with the Humble Heiress I blogged about a month ago.  J’s Thigh High boots give a contemporary edge without distracting at all from the dress and jacket.

The Hecate dress is as surprising as the jacket since few people make full, swinging wide leather skirts, usually opting for the figure hugging pencil skirt shape. Again, I opted for the clean simplicity of J’s boots.

This really is a “see it to believe it” jacket – with the fabulous button details, the extravagant shoulders and sleeves and its architectural solidity. I wanted strong shape for the hair as well and chose the purely coincidentally eponymous Monster hair from Nouveau Miranda.

On the other hand, the Hecate jacket is much more flexible and could be worn with just about anything. It’s surprise and power comes from its juxtaposition with the dress. However, all the pieces together again give us strong powerful shapes that made me opt for a very architectural hair style from the extraordinary Boon.

The jewelry came from Paper Couture and the skin is the very stylized Estelle from Lelutka. This also gives you a closer look at Nouveau Miranda’s Monster.

The jewelry is from LeeZu. I though the squares separated by space echoed the idea of the houndstooth. This better shows off the extraordinary Boon hair. The makeup is the same – Lelutka Estelle.
