A BAND JACKET OF MY OWN//via archive vintage


Two weeks ago I spotted this band jacket at Archive Vintage (an amazing boutique here in Dallas run by the talented Kerry Bonnell) whilst shopping there with Jackie from V.O.D. But I didn't buy it until this Wednesday! It's soo fun to style, I've been playing with a ton of different outfits with it.

It's vintage Perry Ellis and it's ultra-suede with this grey industrial cord-like trim and eppaulettes.

I am wearing them with a bib from the Urban Outfitters Andersend & Lauth collaboration, a red silk miniskirt from a label called Mischen, Betsey Johnson tights, and Balenciaga Fall 2006 ankle boots.

I see Garance Dore and Refinery 29 are doing features on band/military jackets too-check them out!

***I am also very excited to announce that I (and many other bloggers-including That's Just My Vibe, the respective Queens of Style, and Mademoiselle Robot) are working together on a top secret project for Vice-can;t say much now but I'll let you in on the details as soon as I get the go-ahead!***

Normally, I'd think that 5 statement pieces in one outfit was too much, but you pull it off spectacularly! It doesn't look overdone at all, just absolute perfection, as usual. Great, great jacket, and of course shoes!!
