JACKET- CAMDEN/ SHIRT-AMERICAN APPAREL
It’s 2017, a year that I have decided to dedicate partly on saving for a deposit on a flat, I’m not sure how far I will get, because I’m self-employed and therefore income is pretty irregular- but I’m going to try my hardest, and that’s what matters right? Anyway saving or not, it felt right to talk about a purchase for a new year that won’t cost a lot and will last a long time, because we’re all looking for those in our fashionista lives.
It’s a jacket that cost me £25 in Camden and jacket of which has lasted a solid 8 years – My Military jacket of course. If you’ve been a solid follower of mine on most of my socials you’re probably pretty familiar with this jacket. But If you’re not then I am here to express my love for this beauty and tell you that 2017 is the year for you to invest into some timeless Army/Military wear too.
It’s not that I’m gaining commission on it (I genuinely can’t cause I bought it from a vintage stool) it’s just that I’ve spent enough money on clothing to know what is a timeless piece and what is not. I mean even if you only make purchases that fit in with the trends, Army comes in every year so you’ve even got that covered.
Bit of a random blog post, I’ll give you that. But I felt the sudden urge to express my love. And one of my other New Year resolutions was to create and write what I wanted, rather than what I thought would do well and so here you are!
Now if you’re looking for a jacket alike mine, I can’t send to you to a specific shop but vintage shops are usually the place to look, ebay or even one of my favourites… Rokit!
So that’s it from me, what’s your favourite piece of timeless clothing? Let me know as I’m always looking for a new item to love! -G,x
