Are You Ready For Battle?
Christopher Bailey's brilliant, beautiful, big aviator jackets for Fall 2010 (look down there...see 'em?) usher in the full-on status of the nascent military trend that was budding last season. The jackets are pilot perfect and bomb dropping ready. It captures the mood of now quite succinctly--we're done sitting back, shocked that the bottom fell out of the economy, frozen in "what now?" and we are ready to do a bit of battle in our everyday life. Survival of the fiercest. The military trend is a natural sprout from those tougher-than-nails, spike/platform/pedestal heels everyone was obsessed with last season. Women need their fightin' gear, right?
Now, the truth is that the Bailey jackets cost...wait for it... upwards of $3,995.00. Some get up towards the $6,000.00 mark. That's not purchasing reality for most of us, but thanks to fast fashion the look will filter down quick enough to keep you in the mood. Also, if you want to get a head start, I suggest this charming grenade charm necklace from Etsy seller charms4you.
