Military and Stripes

Dear Fashionista

Military jackets are a favourite of yours. Mine too.  I've had a thing for this type of jacket wear since my teens.  I think it's the structure of a military jacket that does it. The discipline of the lines and the close moulding of the shoulders.  I know this shape suits my body type. I have just one and I got it 18 months or so ago from Monsoon. It completes me.  I don't need another.  It's  finished nicely with brass emblem buttons and a striped lining. 

My jacket escorted me to the pub last week. I chose to wear it with a blue and ecru Boden breton. Stripes on stripes.  How advanced in my fashionsta practical sessions is that!  Do I get a merit? 

I also wore skinny jeans and broke out some wedge sandals. 

Unfortunately I had a mishap.  During a visit to the restroom/ladies  I lost a brass button down the toilet.  No pictures.  I was absolutely not going to go fishing for it either!

Instead I found my bag of buttons.  Do I get a certificate for even having a bag of buttons?   

Yes my jacket spares are in there.  Monsoon had kindly provided two, bless them. 

Jacket and I are now complete again.


  1. Yay for extra buttons being provided. You get extra points for being able to find them right off.

  2. I love your bag of buttons!! Mine are hidden in random drawers of my bedroom.

    You've inspired me to get a military style jacket too. Don't know where to start looking around here though... Yours is perfect on you.

  3. You are so right, that style suits you, looking gorgeous, Mrs M-S.
    I've loved everything I've ever bought in Monsoon. Now I know that the brand designs with toilet incidents in mind, I'm loving Monsoon even more. Have button stash, I avoid looking at it, for am reminded of how much I've spent on clothes these past 15 years :-(. Impressed you found yours so quickly. Gold star. And even more impressed that you then quickly repaired. You've entered diploma territory, defo!

  4. This style jacket is one I haven't tried as of yet. I really like it and it's a great look with jeans. Brownie points for saving the buttons! Far more organised than me. I do save them but can never remember where they are! Been on the search for a pleated skirt for you Anna, and your right, there's not a lot out there. I won't be beaten though! xx
