CONCRETE JUNGLE



Wearing: Splendid Army Jacket, Melissa Araujo Top, American Apparel Zipper Shorts,  New leather Boot, and Brandy Melville Necklace



Army green is one of the few colours I will wear, without feeling weird about it. It all started because my bf  after all was in the Army when we first met, I have always been one to borrow my brothers clothes and it wasn't going to stop with the bf. He hates it when he is looking for something and he can't find it, now he knows it is already in my closet. Also, I ordered a new pair of booties online from Choies, I waited impatiently for them to arrive. Oh my God, now that they are here I don't want to wear anything but them. Real leather, and it makes me feel like a certified bad ass. What do you guys think?

I usually only do one post a week, but I was so excited to share with you all, my feature on American Apparel's - "Seen and Submitted"; click here to see it. I just couldn't wait for another week. The coolest part is that I did not submit it; the PR team "bumped" into my blog. If you don't already know, my closet is made up of 50% AA clothing, I just make sure to wear it my way.

  11. loving the jacket!!

    oh and my photos are edited on photoshop to give it that grainy effect. if you have photoshop, download 'actions.' then apply them to your photo. it only takes the push of one button and it edits everything for you! kinda like magic!
