Covered In Camo

Transitioning into spring after enjoying lots of the layered covered looks from winter is dwindling down, but I've been trying to make the best of what remains of this season.  Since 90s grunge kinda resurfaced as a current trend, I took it upon myself to incorporate elements of the style into my wardrobe.  I thrifted an actual military camouflage jacket for about $4, and felt it was seemingly lackluster, so I removed the sleeves and embellished the shoulders with cone and pyramid studs.  After that, I just rummaged through my closet to put together the rest, which is pretty true to the edgy side of my personal style.  Along with the other elements of this outfit, I particularly focused on the studded leather wrist pouch a.k.a. wrist fanny pack by Chief Hawaii, the perfect mix of statement accessory and useful portability (especially great for clubbing, or running errands). I found this outfit very easy to wear, which explains why I've already worn it at least twice since I altered the jacket.  Below I have shots of my 90s grungy outfit in my camo vest...and yes, these were shot in my back yard (in case anyone was wondering).  All photos taken by Zeric Villanueva (except the last one).  =]
