The Militia

I have never been a fan of camouflage because when I was about 16 years old, a bunch of my older friends threw a huge party at a bar and the dress code was camouflage (puke). Since I had my in's with the people in the club scene, I attended but I definitely went against dress code and wore some tacky, revealing bar top in hopes that it would make me look 19. I know now how easy it is to spot a 16 year old girl at the bar because of what she's wearing and the terrible make-up she attempted to do. Doesn't fool anyone! Anyways, even though my style was a bit lost back then, I can still remember the horror of seeing camouflage everywhere that night. It really left a scar on me.

However, I was recently in the army surplus store looking for money belts and other things for my South-east Asia trip and saw the thousands of camouflage apparel they had. I saw this particular camo parka that had a bit of shearling on the hood lining and I couldn't get my mind off it since. I've been thinking of all the ways I could wear it and I found a ton of photos that has changed my mind on camouflage. Not that I would wear a lot of it but maybe just one parka is worth the room in my closet!

  16. dope post Connie!

    I started to wear camo last year and I think I am addicted, Too bad you had a bad experience but I'm glad you are willing to give it another try!

    There is something about females wearing camouflage , I think it shows confidence and swagger!
