damned if I'll yield at the end of the chase

Well, here we go, probably the last installment in my Les Mis character inspired outfits! Believe it or not, this is my Javert inspired outfit. I took the semi-militaryesque jacket and paired it with something fierce - leopard print jeans. I pinned my hair up except let it flow wild at the sides (ahem huge sideburns). And I donned my trusty Chucks...perfect for hunting down and capturing the elusive 24601!


Ahh, it was so cold! Look, you can see my breath!


Today is the first day I've had completely off in almost three weeks! It's been nice and relaxing! I ran to the post office to buy stamps (highway robbery, if you ask me...$8.80 for only 20 stamps), and then popped into my local library. I checked out Moonwalk, Michael Jackson's autobiography, and have delved into it already (putting on hold the magnificent Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel). I also scoured the CD section and came out with 25 CD's to add to my music library. I've only just finished putting them on my laptop now. I've got some great ones, including:
  • Tango Around the World
  • Trinidad Carnival - Steel Bands
  • Pure Disco
  • Billy Joel - An Innocent Man
  • Oh Boy - Buddy Holly
  • Sounds of the Tropical Rainforest
  • Scary Sounds for Halloween
  • Musette from Paris
And, let's not forget the four volumes of Fun with Sound Effects. Haha, yeah. But seriously, how could you live without slamming doors, helicopters, or people clapping 10 millions different ways? It's a must for any sound effect lover. The Scary Sounds CD's (three in all) are also totally rad. I love the organs with the mysterious wailing and thunder in the background!

This is a really cool outfit, and looks so fantastic on you! The military jacket paired with the wild jeans...nice! Looks like you scored some great music as well. Love Billy Joel and Buddy Holly!

This outfit is so stylish and chic. I never know how to wear leopard print but you did it perfectly here and I love your red jacket too. You always have the most stunning coats.

Style Bird said...

The red with the leopard is a great idea. Cool sneakers!

Jen said...

ahahaha i love how you did your hair to make massive "sideburns" :P you're ridiculously silly. i love this outfit though, i'd never have the confidence to wear leopard pants or a red military-ish jacket. you look so great! :D
