All hands on deck...


"I love things that age well - things that don't date, that stand the test of time and that become living examples of the absolute best"
- Giorgio Armani 


 Second hand items have their negative aspects, but the thing i love about a good old vintage piece, is it comes with a life. It's been lived in, it has a story of adventure sealed in its seams and stitches.

So i couldn't help but  jacket-nap my sister's vintage NZ Air Training Corps jacket she got from a second hand army goods store in town. 




  I paired it with my favorite pair of light wash skinny jeans,
 a classic gray t-shirt, my bargain boots 
and some jewelry i got from a market in Christchurch.



 I totally feel like I'm a part of the military 
or air force when I wear this jacket. 
It was the center of the outfit and i tried to keep with the military theme
but also I wanted to stay practical as later in the day I was going to play laser tag. 


 What do you think?

oui ou non?
