Wishlist Wednesday: Je Ne Sais Quoi + A Giveaway

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Today's Wishlist Wednesday consists of items from Je Ne Sais Quoi, a carefully edited, multi-brand e-boutique founded by Mireille Nagourney which carries classic menswear and womenswear and edgy accessories from brands such as LnA, Heimstone, Catherine Michiels, Ettinger and LIP watches. If these items remind you of how chic Parisiennes dress, that's because the company (which ships worldwide, by the way) is based in Paris. Here are some of my top picks from Je Ne Sais Quoi:






JE NE SAIS QUOI GIVEAWAY

Je Ne Sais Quoi offered to give one lucky Dream Sequins reader a beautiful dark grey moto-style jacket from cult-favorite brand, Heimstone in French Size 38 (which fits up to a US size 6). The rules are simple, and every reader will have up to two chances to win!
  • For the first chance to win, leave a comment in this post about how you would style this jacket. Please leave your blog URL, email address or some way to reach you in case you win!

just about to type about how gorgeous the keith jacket is when i read about this giveaway. i'd surely join. i'm already a follower of this blog, but i don't have twitter :)

i'd style this jacket quite the conventional french way: top top a black loose top, white or black tutu/ lace miniskirt, a bit of exposed garter belt on a black thigh-high stocking, and a pair of bold lace-up heeled boots.

i really want that jacket. wish me luck! (p.s. can i have it the smaller size? i'm an US size XS) thanks!

Ooh loveliness! I currently have a grey sheath with a jeweled collar that would bring that feminine pop and contrast to this.

Thanks for the giveaway (ooh and I'm XS too!)

Lizzie said...

This is so beautiful! I am a follower and I would wear this with a white tank and boyfriend jeans. I think that would be such a casual cool outfit, just perfect for the feel of this jacket. What an aweseom giveaway!

I'd style it a babydoll, army boots and a beret, going for the stylish punk princess thing :)

ejessop said...

What a terrific giveaway! I'd style it over a couple of lacy, silky layers (maybe a dress over one of my long vintage slips?), really push the contrast between the toughness of the jacket and the more feminine outfit beneath. I've seen this sort of look happening recently, and have really been wanting to try it out for myself!

Style with Benefits said...

LOVE the jacket! It's such a versatile piece that can be styled in a number of ways. I'd pair it with denim cut-offs, a loose fitting v-neck white t-shirt, black tights and my vintage combat boots.

Fab giveaway, and I love that first dress!

Love love that jacket! I love pairing something tough like that with something really feminine like a lacy or a maxi dress!!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Short wool sweater dress, tights, some cool boots - and voilá, we're ready to go!

Chessa! said...

I LOVE this jacket. I adore it and think it will look fabulous with my bump as an accessory and then after I have the baby. I have so many fabulous echarps that I could wear with it - I love the look of a feminine silk or cashmere scarf with a tougher looking jacket like this one. Although at the same time, the details of this jacket are also feminine and and can be more so depending on what you wear it with. I might also wear it with a fun dress...some kind of pattern that needs toughening up. I need to pull everything for sprig from storage and also bust out a few fun maternity looks. :) I follow you already on twitter (duh) and i'm going to follow je ne sais quoi aussi:)

just tweeted that bad boy...
oh, and just now appreciated the beautiful quilted pattern on the jacket. reminds me of good pal Chanel. :) this would look amazing with my 2.55
oh, yes, definitely.

Anne said...

I'd style it with a touch of 90s redux: perhaps over a purple crushed velvet calf-length dress, dog tags, Doc Marten calf-length boots and some army green nail polish to top it all off.

Jillian (Trendology) said...

I didn't know that I needed a quilted motocross jacket until just now. Styling it with jeans and a tee is obvious but I think it would look kind of badass over a vintage sundress.

Jillian (Trendology) said...

and i'm following you both on twitter!

Jaime said...

Fab giveaway! I would def pair them with the WR jeans I am going now buy on Bluefly (lol) and my Frye boots. I like the idea of a lacey/silky top underneath- that girly vs grunge juxtaposition.

WendyB said...

That jacket is super cool. Too bad I don't have any creative styling ideas. I'd wear it like I wear every other jacket. With a t-shirt and jeans, heels and red lipstick. Do I get any points for honesty?

Fashion Fille said...

hi hi hi!!!!

i would pair this quilted jacket with a flowy white or purple top, zipper leggings, and a hot pair of shoes. accessories would be crucial of course, too!

Ooh. I just watched the new Runaways Cherry Bomb video so I would rock it with some torn up skinny pants, my tough Pour La Victoire Sacha platforms, and a faded wifebeater. And LOTS of eyeliner, rawr.

Skinnies and mile-high strappy, chunky heels. Worn with a loose burnout top underneath, fingerless gloves (it's still cold here), and a smattering of gorgeous chain/pearl necklaces (or one multi-strand).

B said...

Oh la la! I just moved from NYC to Cleveland so I love covering myself in awesome fashion to remind me where I came from because well, it's kinda lame out here.

I wouldn't have to wear much to make it look great, it does it on its own but I think my new mini, simple tights, peeptoe booties and a white something under. Simple and sexy and femme.

Vint Junky said...

What an amazing giveaway...i adore Heimstone and such a beautiful jacket!

I love that it's a biker jacket and the quilting reminds slightly of the cute little anoraks my gran used to wear so in homage to her for daywear i would style it with turned up mannish trousers,striped top, cute brogues and vintage floral scarf tied up on my head.

And for night i would wear it slung on one shoulder over a floor length red dress

newskepticxo said...

Hmm well how not to style this jacket? For casual a nice dark wash jean and plain white v-neck. For dressing up a frilly bright dress, lace legging and boots. I'd love the jacket in any case.

toksweah[at]gmail[dot]com

mim said...

miriam dot nussbaum at gmail
i'd style it either over a dress (black, grey, or navy and streamlined...or springy and floaty and very feminine)

or over slim indigo jeans with a simple (maybe white?) boatneck or v neck top, relaxed looser fit on top given structure by the jacket. would probably pair with flats or boots in that look, and flats or heels with the dress (depending on the dress)

chun said...

I'd definitely like to pair the awesome jacket with a soft gray or nude dress with colorful yellow flats or high brown boots to set it off. I think it would be perfect for the transition of winter to spring.

Tene said...

It is a beautiful jacket, for all ages ;-) - I'd wear it over black, or over jeans - it is such a statement piece that I'd prefer it with something simple, adding a nice necklace or scarf.

lei ann said...

thanks for the reminder post! i almost forgot to enter! i like the tough, but girly look so, i would pair it with a lacy beige or cream-colored dress, but then add to the edgy toughness with some thigh high black boots :)

Ashlyn said...

This jacket is gorgeous and would be perfect thrown over anything. But I'd love to wear it over a flowing floral dress to toughen it up for a night out to dinner in the spring.
It'd be perfect for that night that's too cold for bare shoulders, but just right with a to-die-for jacket like this one.

Ashlyn said...

I also started following @SHOPJNSQ and I've been following you, @dreamsequins, for a bit now. :)

apparellel said...

how did i miss this fab giveaway?!! okay....

since the jacket pretty much speaks for itself i would pair it with an oversized drapey tank top and some grey/black/white tie dye leggings and some stripper shoes. oh and my silver chains and electric blue turban!!! i am following you on twitter and soon to be following @shopjnsq.

can't wait to see you sunday!!
