Army Jacket















A good Army Jacket will last you forever, this one is from the H&M and I have it for about 8 years now! I actually always wanted a real vintage Men's army jacket but never managed to find one in a small size, the drawstring are actually a must because you can wear the jacket like a parker or just plain straight, so when looking for a jacket I would pay attention to drawstrings! I really like the Parka Army jackets that have a longer length than this one... and right now I really really love the oversized parks jackets! I listed below a whole bunch of links to Army Jackets I liked for anyone who's on the look for them, and as you can see I sometimes simply searched for olive colored parka's ;)

Adore the jeans, they are so so pretty :)

thehautepursuit said...

I've been on the hunt for an olive parka forever!!! I don't particularly like new ones either...there are military stores here where you can get everything in green khaki (a visit that is long over due). I also remembered a place in the east village that had like a whole section devoted to fighter jet onesies and army jackets.....there were even gas masks! hahaha

Hope you're doing well Chantal!

Hi! I was wondering if you have a link to the wedges or know the name of them, and how long ago did you buy them? Thanks! I don't remember seeing them on the site.

cocorosa said...

Hi anon + others, the wedges are almost sold out, you can still find them under "last change to buy"

topshop UK size 39 only

http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=19551&storeId=12556&productId=1646226&langId=-1&categoryId=&parent_category_rn=

topshop US size 8.5 only

http://us.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=0&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=32051&storeId=13052&productId=1646233&langId=-1&categoryId=&parent_category_rn=

Mine are a euro 36/US 5.5, normally I would be a US 6 but 6 would have been to big!

cocorosa said...

If the links don't work you can search on the TopShop site for; "Sailor peep toe wedges"

The Backseat Stylers said...

Great H&M find!

Cindy said...

i have that coat as well and it is my favourite!
i literally wear it all year long. i layer hoodies and vests under it in winter and i use it as a raincoat in the summer. there's prob. no other piece of clothing i wear more.

i just bought a real army coat as a backup b/c i'm afraid of the hm one wearing out. mine is more fitted b/c it's actually a shirt but b/c of that it only has chest pockets.

weird question but can you tell me what size jeans you got? i want to know if i picked the right size on the jeans i ordered from topshop. it's cool though if you don't want to say :)
