If you were to ask me 2 years ago how I felt about military inspired clothing, I would have gone off about my distain for anything and everything camo related!! At the time I was working with so many different camo patterns that I think I started to resent it all. But now I am singing a completely different tune!
There are so many great military inspired trends out there right now and I love how they are being interpreted into woven shirts, jackets, and pants! Check out the little collage that I threw together with all of the pieces that I am currently lusting over!
I love taking menswear and making it feminine and wearable for me. So its only natural that I am obsessed with the whole military trend. I actually purchased the jacket below from Asos a couple of weeks ago!
How fabulous is this jacket? It literally sold out on the Asos website within a few days…luckily one of my other blogger friends brought this jacket to my attention and I made sure to snap it right up!
Unfortunately, as soon as I pulled the jacket out of the box I noticed that it heavily smelled like a mixture of cat pee and rotting fish. Now I know that this jacket wasn’t accidentally soaked in anything bad…but that its actually a chief characteristic of the dye used. So far I have dowsed the whole thing with half a bottle of Febreeze, but it has only taken the smell down by 50%.
Anyone have any good ideas?! I really, really want to keep it!
