High Waist and a Bolero

I got this jacket over a year ago and never wear it. The soldier uniform detailing caught my eye when I bought it, but it was passe the second I took it off the second-hand hanger. But call it a bolero (roll that "r." Nice, huh?) instead of a jacket and it's good enough to resurect!

With my fresh-take bolero I wanted to try the high-waisted look. I pulled an AA skirt up over a tank and voila!

"bolero": second hand shop in Kentucky
tank: H&M
skirt: American Apparel
boots: American Eagle (on sale, 2 years ago... such a deal!)

The "bolero" look so good. I think adds a very nice touch to any outfit.
I like to wear boleros with a dress... maybe you could try it too! :D

The skirt you are wearing fits you so well! xox

Secretista said...

Love it. What part of your clothing is the pink a part of?

Wendy said...

The bolero has a lot of potential. Try dressing it up in a tougher way. And I love the color block skirt.

Key, I will definitely try it. Perhaps with a floral print pattern that seems popular on in the S/S 08 shows.
Jen, thank you! I love it for exactly that reason... yea American Apparel!
Secretista, the pink part is actually the top of the skirt. I bought the skirt because I looove that pink.
Wendy, I like that idea! I'll give it a go the next time I wear it.
Fashion tidbits, we are trying to incorporate it into our wardrobes for the spring.
Thanks, Lynn! I love that color combo too.

yeah, it resembles spitzer, just a little creepy, but on the brighter side of life, I love the AA skirt w/ the pink!

I love the skirt you're wearing. It fits you so well. I had a similar experience with an army style jacket, i like your fix.

AsianCajuns said...

Thanks, Clare! I'd love to see what you did with your army jacket. I've recently toyed with the idea of swiping my dad's.
