"I am the muthafuckin' shore patrol !"
|Nautical or Naughty-cal? Outfit inspired by Hal Ashby's The Last Detail.|
All right. I'm not REALLY the muthafuckin' shore patrol. Jack Nicholson is. But I did feel blue like a sailor when I dressed today & donned a real Navy-issued wool pea-coat. The coat, recently given to me by the mom of my best friend from high school, had been my BF's grandfather's & I used to wear it like an over-sized swing coat; it was huuuge on me. Believe it or not PEACOATS were not on a ladies' fashion menu back in the early '80's so it stood out in a crowd. Now the coat fits snug and blends in. The only detail missing is a white sailor's cap.
I've been wanting one for years, and haven't yet found one. But I think I need one to go with my new/old Navy pea-coat. And I need an navy shirt too, while I'm at it. Because I am the muthafuckin' shore patrol, damn it. Now give me a beer.
Now Wearing: black knit cap, authentic Naval peacoat, red/grey striped scarf, navy/black striped pullover, vintage nautical themed belt, jean shorts, navy tights, platform shoes. (Most items thrifted save the scarf, shoes and tights.)
