The timing of this outfit couldn't be better. Today is the second anniversary of my little ol' blog, and this cape happens to be featured in my very first outfit post. It was not planned, I swear! Call it kismet; I just now figured out that it was the second anniversary of the blog when I was looking for the post. I wish I had something big planned but I have nothing prepared because I'm no Oprah. Ten thousand virtual hugs for all of my readers!
As you can see in the original post, my mom got this cape for me out of a dumpster. The thrift store near her bar used to throw out bags and bags of clothes; it's really a shame how much of it always went to waste (though most of the homeless in our hometown found a great deal of their clothing there). My mom saw this vintage cape and fetched it for me - and washed it thoroughly, obviously. I really love it; it's like wearing a cozy blanket. Now all I need is one that goes all the way down to my toes. Snuggie?
