There's nothing better than character dressing (and kilts).  I spent yesterday scouring op shops with military precision, armed with a magic letter that let me take whatever I wanted - even from the elusive 'out the back' regions - without having to pay a cent.  No, I'm not in the habit of knocking off charity stores, I'm working on a Salvo's campaign (but I wish it were always that way!).

wearing:
jacket - route 66
kilt/belt - vintage
t - gorman
stockings - sportsgirl
epaulette pins (worn on collar) - army surplus
boots - ebay (a bit big but I just can't win with shoe sizing)

Love it! Nothing like some op shopping to get the creative juices flowing.
Kilt pins are the best aren't they.

Oo, sounds like a fun project!

Haha, I love the punching-the-camera shots. Although, really I just love the entire outfit. Kilts are always a winner in my books. Hope you're having fun with the Salvos project!

Ooh, stripes, spots and tartan with studded belt and boots? YES PLEASE! Love this look so much and can't wait to hear about your Salvos project - whatever it is, I want one!

Seriously digging that skirt! Been wanting one for ages, but don't think I'd do it justice. Rock it hard for me...
