Rule 5 Blogging: Haute couture

It’s the weekend and time, once again, for our version of Rule 5 Blogging. Robert Stacy McCain described as putting pictures of pretty women somewhat déshabillé, but, on this site, our Rule 5 Blogging doesn’t put up pictures of Megan Fox in her summer clothes, but women, in full military gear, serving their countries in the armed forces. The terribly sexist authors on this site celebrate strong women, women who can take care of themselves and take care of others, women who have been willing to put their lives on the line in some not-so-friendly places, women who truly do have the “We can do it!” attitude. Today: How our female soldiers express their femininity through high fashion!

Even on duty in the deserts of Iraq, this soldier found time to add a truly haute couture scarf!

Note how Captain Jennings carefully accessorized her outfit with an M-4 rifle and the latest in fashion handbags.

Along with a haute couture scarf, this soldier has added a dramatically feminine pink flower to her chapeau.

This last picture isn’t exactly of a soldier in full military gear, but like the viral photo of the Israeli soldier at the beach, in her bikini, with her weapon slung on her back, I did like this one! In Israel, they do things a bit differently.

A simple summer outfit, tastefully accessorized with an AR-15 rifle and the magazine tucked into her back pocket.
