80s Military Style











yay, finally photographed my new jacket! the look is incredibly different from how i normally dress but to share a little secret with you --> every now and then i sort of desire a more edgy wardrobe. if i could find killer jackets like this more often i suppose i could make that happen, but sadly these finds are rare in this town. to tell you the truth, i felt a little out of place when i wore this downtown for lunch yesterday. there's not much 'street style' going on around here, if you know what i mean! for that reason i've decided to list it in my etsy shop. i think there's someone else out there that could do it much better justice than i. and if i miss it, i'll always have my photos to hang on to.

like my Michael Jackson shot? soo soo silly.

Visit my etsy shop to check out the jacket.
Tank: F21 $10
Leggings: Rue 21 $15
Boots: Modcloth $45
Vintage Hat: Estate Sale $8

Ooo I like your jacket! I really want a military jacket right now. I keep seeing them everywhere.

As far as the French, I do know about 75% of conversational French. Generally from my grandmother teaching us. However, she normally spoke english to us due to the fact that my mother doesn't know french despite the fact that my father speaks it. The time was definitely different in the 40s when she came to the US. Immigrants we sort of looked down upon so she quickly taught herself english. Back then being American was better than anything. Now we all try to go back to our roots! Its weird!

although you've said that this jacket is a bit out of your normal style, you look completely at ease. can't believe how intricate it is - complete with gold ropes and all.
