Happy Belated Black Friday! I spent the day drinking hot tea, playing board games with my family and a little later volunteering but in the spirit of the Holiday I posted about my purchases from the Etsy shopping spree I went on a couple weeks ago. Which I finally managed to get photos of, they’ve been surprisingly hard to photograph.
1.) The Blue Cape
You guys I am in love with this. I thought once it came in the mail I might feel like it was ‘to much’ but instead I am just in love with it. I feel like a storybook character every time I leave the house. Also apparently capes are perfect in the rain. I wore it out to walk the dog with my grungy old blue galoshes and I’m pretty sure my neighbors thought I was a ghost. Once again I felt a little guilty for actually WEARING this beautiful vintage piece which is in impeccable condition. And then I remembered clothes are meant to be worn, and I promise to take good care of it.
However, pretty sure that all good capes need a purse muff. Which I became a little obsessed with since I saw Virginie using one. (How freaking cute is she?) So I’m probably going to have to try to make one… I will let you know how that turns out (it looks really great in my head).
2.) Green Bowler
Speaking of Virginie, I bought this from her shop. Rarely do I see something and fall SO in love that I have to order it via internet instead of waiting for one to show up in a thrift store near me. This emerald green bowler was one of those things. It also make me feel a little like a character in a story book, but a completely different book than the cape…
I’ve already introduced you guys to my camel bowler, (Which Kelley says should be my signature piece.) This is his new friend the emerald green bowler. She wishes she could have been an extra on Blossom and wants everyone to wear overalls again.
