Army Orders

My Way---


Oscar de la Renta - Fall 2010
photo source:

What I donned:
Military-Style Shirt Dress - Faded Glory - Walmart (I've had this for a few years now.)
Black Leggings - Walmart
Colorful Flats - Vintage - Yard Sale
Faux Fur Hat - Yard Sale (I like to think of this as my "Russian Hat." No, I wouldn't really wear the hat with the dress, I just did it because of the Oscar de la Renta inspiration.=)

This early budding springtime trend is likely to march into fall, as you can see from the above autumn runway shot.

-My Military Picks-

"Route 66" Military Star Cap - - $6.99

Cargo Capris - - $12

Patriotic Tee - - $5
Perfect for this Memorial Day weekend, Flag Day (June 14th), & the 4th of July!

-Some Military Polyvore Fun-


I'm not so sure about that holey shirt. You'd have to wear something under it, of course. Not sure if it's me, but if you like it you could easily take a pair of scissors to a thrifted tee to recreate the look. Not so sure about those open-toe boots either...=)

"I'm In The Lord's Army"
by Hal Wright

I may never march in the infantry
Ride in the cavalry
Shoot the artillery
I may never fly o'er the enemy
But I'm in the Lord's army!
Yes sir!

I'm in the Lord's army!
Yes sir!
I'm in the Lord's army!
Yes sir!


  1. You've got some VeRy military looks there, Bess. I'm not so sure about that hole-y shirt either (lol).
