We'd like to offer a big warm welcome home to our Co-Founder and CEO, Emily Nunez. Emily has spent the past 6 months in Afghanistan, and we could not be more proud of her and all she and her unit have accomplished. While we were excited to see her embark on her mission, I think we will all sleep a little sounder knowing our sweet Emily is back on American soil! Welcome home Emily!!
In honor of Emily's arrival home, I decided to feature military inspired fashion this week, with the help of my friend & fashion blogger Dru Ammons. In Dru's recent post, she mentioned how inspiring our service members are, and also how that influence and inspiration is being reflected in today's fashion. These military inspired looks have been all over the fashion scene this season. We've seen everything from strong structured coats and camouflage printed pieces to combat boots and of course our S&P bags! Not only are these pieces fashionable, in many cases they're also economical! Many bloggers, including Dru, build their looks around items already in the closet or found in vintage stores. Several of these pieces have important stories behind them, including bags that use military surplus, like Sword Plough, and items of significance like a veteran's pin. High end fashion houses Burberry and Gucci are also following along with the trend, bringing it from the field to Fifth Avenue, and back.
Below is Dru's military inspired look! Clicking her photo will direct you to her blog, where you can view more of her fabulous stylings!
