Fall Fashion: Day Five.

I'm running around a bit crazy again today- working and arranging childcare and loving every minute of it. I mentioned it once briefly here before, but I am the assistant Events Coordinator at my church, which, if I could sum it up for you in a couple of words, they would be this: DREAM. JOB. I love it so much.

This is a thrifted military-ish jacket that I found long before they were cool. I used to get made fun of for wearing this jacket. Now they are all the rage. Isn't that always the way? Long ago, I decided that if a particular piece of clothing got a lot of snarky comments, it would probably eventually become the 'next big thing' if I just held onto it long enough. (Another example: the crazy legwarmers I have. I may show you those tomorrow...)

The belt is an old vintage cummerbund and the shirt is really a T-dress that I bloused out over the belt a bit. The jeans are Chip & Pepper- ordered from eBay.

In these shots I am wearing heels, which I will probably slip back on later for the event I am working tonight, but for now, I am running around in my Chuck Taylors. :)

Check out what the others are wearing!!

I love your jacket. You look fabulous today, just like every other day.

Loved how you belted up the tunic. So stealing that idea.

The buttons on the jacket are great.

Katy said...

I love military jackets! i have like 2 or 3. I try to wear things that I know are not so cool... because I know that I may get fun of at first, but secretly people think it's cool and then it all of a sudden becomes the newest thing! haha!!! I love to be different! ;-)

I also love the belt you made with this outfit!!

I had two military jackets that I bought in 1999 and 2000 respectively. I have since given them both away to far more stylish people...
you look GREAT! I would want you to be the one in charge of my event!

Love this one too! *sniff...

Does this mean that it's over? I will miss this week. It has been such a blast.


Amanda said...

Love, love, love! I'm so jealous that you (Jillian too!) can pull off such cute pixie cuts. That military jacket is stunning. I'm beginning to think I may have a button fetish!
