…nothing left to prove: Military Chic

Well, it happens sooner or later to every fashionista —one day you look up and suddenly realize you already own everything on the grid.

O! the humanity!

[Aebleskiver Thibedeau reels back against the wall stunned and clings to the draperies for support.]

Times like these call for one thing: Mashups from the Inventory!

Milk Motion’s My Admiral military jacket was among the first in this popular trend, and remains to my mind the best of the lot. Hey! the cut, the detail work, the sculpties…the lining, for God’s sake! It languished too long in my inventory, largely because I first mashed it up with some low rise jeans and boots in a wicked casual look…but I’m not so much of a jeans girl any more, and so when I pulled it out again, I decided to push it the other way.

That meant Coco’s Balloon Pants.  Now, I admit that when I first saw Coco’s Balloon Pants all I could think was “where would I *ever* wear those?”. Slowly but surely, though,  I find them gracing almost every outfit I put together.  Why?  How can you deny that fabulous silhouette?  the layering of those sophisticated textures? those cunning little gold buttons! Sublime!

Riches like these demand Stiletto Moodys Gold.  Now, I’m not a foot fetishist (no, really!), but if I were, Stiletto Moody’s Gold Bare Laurens are where I’d start licking, with their gleaming satin ankle ribbons and peerless gold textures.  Perfect!

Megg Demina’s Chapeau Tres Mignon has long been the source of fabulous hats on the grid.  Here The Napoleonic Military Hat “The Navy”, a charming  little tricorn with gold braid and flowers, finishes off the look with panache. It’s an undeniable fact that the world needs more hats, and I, for one, am always glad to see them appear on the market. More hats, please, creators!

And now it gets embarrassing, because the lovely corset that completes this look is from paper.dolls, but from where or how it came to me, or if it’s even still available, I honestly cannot tell you.  Ah well…such is life!

I salute the creators of these marvelous things, which make all it so easy!
