Green and Pink

(Tramp plaid dress, DKNY tights, Franco Sarto riding boots, Hollister coat w/o fur collar, UO. horizontal ring)

I have been a huge fan of the military trend even before it was recently seen all over the runways at Balmain, Marc Jacobs, and John Galliano. Needless to say I wasn't surprised the trend was taking speed, but it was nice to know I already had all the necessary items in my boudoir to rock this patriotic look! Combat boots: check. army uniform shirt with epaulets: check. Officers coat: check. Sir, yes sir, sign me up for fashion boot camp stat, I'm armed (sans Chanel quilted bag) and ready!

This look can get a little overwhelmingly masculine without the right touch of femininity. So I paired my military-esque garb with a shocking pink lipstick! I was a little much, I must say, when I walked into the resto for din, the hostess eyes were glued to my lips as she was asking us the requisite "seating for two" questions. Maybe she was just wasn't used to all this fabulous-ness!  I, on the other hand, love this fabulous fuschia color, it instantly brightens any look! I'd recommend it for an instant pick me up-- you know when your having one of those days, ie. like someone breaking into your apartment and stealing your brand new Mac Book Pro and other valuable items, tear....

But enough with my security issues, hope you all have a fab weekend.
