If you've been reading this blog for a while, you might know that I have been looking for a decent military jacket for about four years. By decent, I mean the full on Sgt Pepper deal. I also mean affordable, and not enormous enough to fit several large men and their respective paunches into it. This has been more difficult than you might think. So many of the jackets I've come across over the years have been seventy three times too big, or wayyy too expensive, too 80's, the wrong colours ... but now, I have found it. IT. the jacket. I added the buttons myself, ripped off the hideous panthers adorning its sleeves, and VIOLA! Heaven.
I really hated these panthers. They had to go.
Half-way through the button-sewing process.
YAY! Welcome to my squishy face of happiness.
This is a painting outfit. Though I did NOT wear the jacket while painting. You would not believe how much I love it ... I even tried to sleep in it. It was not comfortable.
• White Diesel glasses.
• Amazing amazing vintage band jacket, eBay.
• 1970's lace dress, Ebay. Inexpertly hacked off at the bottom and the sleeves by me.
• Dark grey leggings, Myer.
• Black 1970's boots, eBay.
So, I've found the holy grail.
Oh no! Now what will I do??
