Going to War

 This is what fear looks like...

Camo Jacket- Thrifted, mini satchel- Vintage (via La Petite Marmoset), Collared blouse, metallic belt, and ear piece- Asos, Crochet Tunic- a beach cover up from 5 years ago, Booties- Miista

Glad that I finally have an excuse to take advantage of all the camo print fatigues I find! This is a great type of jacket to keep any look from feeling "too pretty" (because why would we ever want that?) Thanks to Nadine's hair workshop tips, I got a chance to test out a more volumized top knot bun than I normally do--- I think it would make a nice home for birds

Sad to be missing out on the New York Fashion Week Festivities, but will still be celebrating Fashion's Night out tonight in Georgetown with fellow bloggers! Look forward to seeing you there :)


  1. bahahahaha....OMG you thought I was going to get hit...and you were so scared!! awwww...ruv. Such a cool look! Love the mix of pretty and badass :) xx

  2. GUUUURL your bun is lookin' GOOD!!! Can't wait to see you tonight & I love that you paired the dainty white pieces with the camo :)

  3. Love those shoes ! well the entire look actually!

  4. All of the spikes and the ear cuff and that delicious chubby bun. LOVE.

  5. Wow love how you made this jacket work !
    I could have never done it in a mllion years :)

  6. You are wearing the shirt or "blouse" from a Battle Dress Uniform (BDU's), not "camo print fatigues.") While you are certainly within your rights to wear the garment if you wish, I find it disrespectful to those of us who wore that uniform proudly while on active duty. I see that you still have the "U.S. Army" tape on the garment. Are you also wearing someone else's nametag?

    1. Hi Marcy! Thank you for pointing out my mistake--- I'm sorry if I offended you or anyone else who has worn this uniform while on active duty. My parents both served in the military (currently retired Captain and Chief Petty Officer in the Navy) and from the time I was a little girl I wore jackets and patches from their uniforms, so I just saw this as an extension of what I experienced in my childhood. It makes me sad to see so many of these jackets at the thrift store and I thought I'd give them a new life. I am not wearing anyone else's name tag. I proudly support our country and the brave women and men who serve in the armed forces.


Thank you for reading my blog! I appreciate all your comments :)
