security guard.

my latest acquisition in jackets.
THE military jacket, complete with patches and all.
mini-he said i was like a security guard. in his head, security guards are equal to police, and police are equal to soldiers [because they both carry weapons], so i'm ok with that.

it all started with the desire for a simple olive parka, but "parkas" ended up being too long...most coming down to my knees. so my olive parka search morphed into olive jacket, and that brought me to this one. it's lined making it a good buy and a bit warm. eh...blisters, sweat...there's always a price to pay for fashion. i find myself wearing it with my favorite leopard + stripes combo. check out how my fellow hawaii fashionistas are rocking their olive jackets: fashionation street, elisharon.

(military utility jacket, go jane; dress, saks; shoes, nine west)

  13. I have been looking for a jacket like that forever. Absolutely love it. Nice tip to look for jacket vs. parka. I'm really short, so I think that has been my problem :)
