Military Jacket


Men's wear is so sexy on a woman. I lusted over this jacket for a few months. I initially started liking the look of the jacket when my sister purchased hers last year. She jazzed it up by putting jewels and pins on it to give it a feminine feel. Then I saw a friend wearing hers with jewels strategically placed on the pocket (hers was from Zara). The look kept playing over and over in my head. So I gave in and this weekend and went to Vice Versa thrift shop and bought my own. I'm loving it for the style and the thickness of it. I feel protected when I wear it. Men's clothes tend to do just that for me.

Another great spot to purchase a jacket like this is at a thrift store called Atlantic Attic. It's more of a men's thrift but it works for the fit of curves!

Yeah - good for you! Everyone needs one in my opinion ;-) I love this clutch, it goes very well with the jacket. We should go thrift store shopping together one day :-)

Yes! I have a camouflage jacket from TJ Maxx that I absolutely love. I typically wear it belted and with a brooch as well.

I love the color on your jacket. And as always, the hair is radiant!
