♥ i've got soul, but i'm not a soldier.

images via we heart it.

my friend was just given a set of
dolce + gabbana dog.tags for her birthday.
another friend of mine works on a military base–
which got me thinking about military–inspired style,
and how rad + badass it is all at the same time.

having never given boots, badges + medallions
much of a thought before when it comes to my personal style,
i am now convinced that i have just unearthed
what seems to be a veritable land mine
of fashion possibilities.

indian accessory designer/stylist
shilpa chavan of little shilpa
has just revealed a fall 2009 look book
of gorgeous and theatrical
world war II inspired hats and accessories.
i usually don't like uniforms,
but if i could look like this in military garb..
sign. me. up.

and did anyone catch slumdog millionaire's (2008)
freida pinto in this knockout frock borrowed from
it's worthy of a three gun salute.

and while i do agree that war is good for
absolutely nothing,
i do like the style that it has inspired

so, maybe you're more of a lover than a fighter,
maybe you're not ready to gear up just yet,
at least for now, you can look like it.
