Nostalgia is more a styling choice today than an actual mood. I fell in love with Villena's simple Varsity Jacket. It brings up the feelings of a distant idealized past. Many people look back on the past longing for a lost time or place. I'd rather look forward, but I wish I had a clearer idea what to look forward to and what to wish for. I'm not an optimist by nature or experience but I still like to indulge in a little hope. Don't we all?
It isn't just a jacket. It includes several versions, male and female, the jacket alone or with several t-shirts built in underneath. All nicely designed. I managed to combine the mesh top and bottom by wearing the larger jacket with the very skinny version of Maitreya's jeans. I would have paid for jeans but these were a store gift! As it happens the "dirty" version was my favorite color.
