Object Of Desire
BB Dakota Battalion Jacket, $79, at chickdowntown.com
There’s almost no way you can afford Balmain, or any of the other military-inspired jackets from the Fall ’09 runways (unless you max your credit card, or are Beyonce); this version is only $79…an insanely reduced price compared to Phillip Lim’s.
Pairing it with a boho, floral dress and boots will underplay the whole “I’m in a war” thing, and it’s a nice change from the usual peacoat or leather motorcycle jacket.
After seeing Inglourious Basterds twice in two weeks, maybe taking a fashion tip from Brad Pitt isn’t such a bad idea. Just, you know…don’t start killing people or trying to trick Nazis.
