Classic Camo

Classic Camo - The Life Styled - Photo by Ian SheppardI love it when fashion is found in unlikely places. When I was doing costumes for a show this past summer, I ended up becoming a regular at the military surplus store on Venice Blvd in Culver City. It had never occurred to me to go there before but it definitely opened my eyes to all kinds of interesting possibilities from combat boots and camo in every pattern and color to canteens, beanies, overalls, flight suits, and pins (some of which I featured here). I picked up this pre-owned camo jacket on one of my excursions and instead of it falling under the “cute in theory” curse and migrating to the back of my closet, I’ve actually found myself reaching for it fairly often. This is my favorite way to wear it – with retro dark rinse jeans, a ripped tee, Converse high tops, orangey red lips, and layered necklaces (see last Wednesday’s post) to add a welcomed touch of glamour.

      Thanks, Stine! Let me tell ya – the messy bun is far from perfect. I literally just threw it up like I would before bed. Nothing special – I guess that’s the idea!

  4. Such a fun and chic look! Love, love the layering of the necklaces!
