Military, metallics & shine















Topshop khaki mini skirt
Topshop crossbody khaki bag
Topshop waistcoat customized by me adding lots of vintage brooches and army badges
3 Necklaces:
Topshop Freedom dog tags
Dorothy Perkins multi chains long necklace in silver and gold chains and self made chunky brass necklace also large bangle that I made myself too
 Primark sequins silver top
 River Island summer gladiator boots
Ray Ban aviator sunglasses

I spent around 2 weeks finding all that brooches to give that particular military look to my waistcoat. Some of them I found on eBay others in local vintage shops and I didn't stop getting them until I was happy with the result.  I'm a bit inpatient when I want to see the finished result but I had to wait on this.
I will probably add some more but I don't wear brooches that much and unless I find them a purpose like in this case they don't motivate me enough to even look, except the vintage shops where you always find the most amazing things .
I hope you like my military, army approach, not something that I will wear every day but nice for going out clubbing or to a party. For a day look I will remove all the jewellery or change the sequin top with something plain.
