Happy Birthday!

I share my birthday month with many readers and bloggers and the United States Marine Corps. Today is the Corps’ 234th birthday. I’m going to do 234 pushups in honor of the occasion:

Pushups
Actually, I kind of suck at pushups. I can do about 10. But animated Kasmira can do an infinite number.

To celebrate the anniversary, I’m wearing my 100% genuine USMC uniform skirt with absolutely non-regulation lace tacked to the hem. I also planned the color palette in honor of the Corps. I’m wearing the olive, khaki, and black of the (old) camouflage utilities and the red of the dress pants’ blood stripe.

Sweater, vintage. Tank, Body Central. Skirt, USMC service uniform. Tights, Danskin. Peeptoes, BCBGeneration.

Happy Birthday, Marines!


Zoro is eating a bug in this photo, but he says “Happy Birthday” too.

Hi Kasmira, This is super hot. Very Pinup. Makes me want to listen to 'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy' and have pin curls!

What a great way to mark Veteran's Day. I love that you reused the skirt and added the lace. It looks great, and I was so surprised when I first read that it was part of your Marines uniform. Love the animated Kasmira doing pushups!!

Very cute! I love the vintage vibe and how you re-invented your skirt by adding that lace trim.

Happy belated birthday? (or not happened yet?) I saw this on Becky's blog and said OMG I love love love that I almost exactly copied you and didn't know it. I am not surprised I have been copying you for years at this point! Now I can do it unconsciously!

Oh geez, I guess I'm a little behind on my commenting -- happy belated birthday!

my husband's in the marines what did you do to your dress blues??

Kasmira said...

L.Higgin - the only part of my dress blue's I've reused is the black skirt. I wear it as is.
