One of my favorite movie lines of all time is from good morning Vietnam
. Robin Williams
(an underestimated genius in my opinion) does a skit on the radio impersonating the Camp Fashion Consultant: "Because you go in the jungle, I can't see you. You know, it's like wearing stripes and plaid. For me, I want to do something different. You know, you go in the jungle, make a statement. If you're going to fight, clash. You know what I mean?"
Thats why Camouflage
as urban wear is just the ticket. I say to hell with grays and blacks. when your in the city, clash!
I got loads of camouflage and army inspired in my collection. I love the blend of the ultra masculine print with the feminine cuts. most of these items can be found in my "street beat
" section, which is dedicated to street wear inspired items. here is a selection of my favorite items from this collection:
If you want some a statement top, this is it, try out this camouflage and star print bustier top
. I added a super cool grommet tape and metal buckle shoulder strap to complete the look.
Still abit chilly? this camouflage long sleeve hoodie
top has bullets printed on the front, and its just a great item to carry you through these volatile spring days.
Want to go all the way with the look? try a corset!
I have to admit I still love camo pants, but hey, I was a teenager in the 90's so it must explain it!
And if you want something even more sinister, try these camo and skeleton hand print pants
, the have skeleton hands printed on the front pockets and on the back, grabbing your tush:)
And off course who can forget the camouflage dress
? this one has a slinky racer cut with a red bleeding heart print on the front. Just the perfect little number to take you from day to night!
And lets move on to our accessories, hand picked from the most talented etsy
its super cute and playful, I love the little star attached and the color is just fab!
And I bet you haven't seen anything like this before! this working Etch A Sketch Necklace in Blue Camo by HModine
just fills me with childhood memories ( I just loved my etch a sketch although I couldn't draw to save my life) this one not only looks cool, it works to! write down your thoughts or reminders and go on with your day:)
This Cute Camo scarf by Jersey Lovey
is just awesome, it works both as a lightweight scarf and a necklace, its got a great boho touch to it and will look just awesome with a black boy beater.
If you want one that is more delicate and less in your face, you have to try out this gorgeous Camo and Studs Cuff by TheLooseKnot
, Its just dying to be worn with a safari style shirt dress.
