Army Brat

2.02.2012


Black leather jacket from Alter, Brooklyn
French Connection blouse (similar style here)
Bershka oversized-pocket jeans (similar look here)
Burberry creepers
Alexander Mcqueen quilted tote bag
Vintage studded belt, rings and feather earring

My boyfriend always laughs at me because, for a girl who's relatively small in stature, I tend to think I'm a whole lot tougher than I actually am. I'm sure he'll smirk when he sees this outfit, at least in part because it makes me look like the badass I wish I was...

An even more badass move would be to steal these shoes from Micol and somehow stretch them the extra 1/2 a foot size I'd need to actually be able to walk in them for more than a block. Let's just say I'm obsessed with these puppies. Again, I'm reminded of our daily frustration.

  33. Love this look, the green cuffed pants letting the shoes letting your legs and the shoes get the attention they deserve.

    Oh, I share your Burberry creeper obsession. I even illustrated them, which is what I tend to do with pieces I can't stop drooling over. http://mystylecanvas.blogspot.com/2011/09/imagine-view-from-these-high-heeled.html
