Trend Spotting | Hunter Green

Wednesday, September 28, 2011


I remember sporting this authentic army green jacket to my eighth grade graduation and was immediately disrobed before even stepping foot into the auditorium. My teachers literally yanked my "avante-garde" choice straight from my back while I shouted "...but it's TRENDY!" while watching the fashion police haul it away. Military influenced, army green with feminine ruffles...maybe. Army green camouflage veteran jacket straight from my gf's father's closet of memorabilia, size XL...notsomuch.

I thought I was some hot *ish strutting in there ready to collect my commencement diploma along with arbitrary compliments that would naturally ensue. Instead, all I got were a few scoffing chuckles and battle scars having just escaped combat. 

Lesson learned:
Just because it's trendy, doesn't mean it will work for you. Word. Now every time I dare to dream green, I make damn sure I look like a lady, but act like a dude. Minus the war wounds. Ouch.


Friday Night fun with my girls in Old Town Orange wearing
{BCBG cardigan, Free People Top, Joie belt, Tart leggings, Ty Platform Wedge c/o Nasty Gal, Guess leather clutch, RJ Graziano necklace}

Thanks for reading...Happy Hump Day y'all!

  3. I remember wearing my mother's old nightgowns (fancy ones) as dresses in middle school.
    I thought I was the bomb.
    In retrospect, probably not my best look....
    You are gorgeous in these photos as always!
