FLJ


I bought this Funny Little Jacket (FLJ) from Forever 21 almost three years ago. It’s very cropped and voluminous. When my arms are at my sides, it resembles a puffy cape. The body is navy, but the collar is black. It doesn’t have a closure, so I usually pin it closed with a brooch.


Jacket, Forever 21. Turtleneck, Mossimo. Dress, London Times (hand-me-down). Tights, We Love Colors. Boots, Rampage. Brooch, Burlington Coat Factory.



I first wore the FLJ in January 2008 and last wore it in September 2009:

Wow, you really did a great job styling this tricky shape! I am so impressed! What a great deal for such a detailed jacket--sometimes you just can't beat forever 21. I wore a similar shape jacket the other day, and as much as I love it, its tricky! Kudos to you~Paula

Those boots are, excuse my French, badass. Also that jacket is so quirky and fun. I don't think I would know how to wear something like that, but I love how you've styled it.
