The Maestro Jacket


I found this interesting little jacket-thingy while thrifting with my mom and sister when I was in the States. It's by the Macy's brand INC, it's super-lightweight, and has all sorts of weird and wonderful detail on it. It's made of ultra suede, and has a draped jersey back. I've decided to call it the Maestro jacket because it reminds me of a conductor's jacket with tails...I guess all those years of sitting in bands and orchestras have informed my view of things. 

I had originally wanted to pair this with a skirt or maybe a pair of shorts and tights, but I tore a hamstring on the tennis court yesterday (old injury, I'm a bad at stretching), and apparently I have to wait a few more days before I am able to balance on one leg long enough to put on a pair of tights (I got them up to my knee, then had to abandon ship). The skinny jeans were challenging enough. I kind of wish I had taken some video of it though, because it was actually a little bit hilarious. You know how much we love all things hilarious here at the blog.

    1. Of course I don't mind! That's why I parade around in front of the whole Internet! Fashion is better when you share it! Enjoy 😄

  4. Ooooh! I ran in and cut off a couple of inches and increased the angle of a similarly cut (but with a faux leather front) jacket ... it looks so much better now that I've seen you wear this piece. See? Got all inspired by you to good effect, yet again.
    That's a beautiful piece on you (what isn't gorgeous on you?) and I'm so sorry you have a boo-boo on your hammy. Nice to give your easy jeans an outing with this little jacket ... and the silver is so good with all. Yummy you!
