Though the thrifting in NYC is dismal at best, I've always found a reliable friend in Etsy. I obviously have an affinity for capes, which has only grown over the years. It's like wearing a blanket, only it's more socially and fashionably acceptable to don outside of the house. I wear that camel-colored cape (my mom's dumpster diving find, I might add) with just about everything and needed more to put in rotation, so I turned to Shopbop for ideas. And then I saw the price tag and remembered why I usually shop their sale section or merely save the pictures for inspiration...so, I went and found this one on Etsy. It's completely different from the one I was envisioning, but you know what? I think I like it even more.
p.s. See how I originally styled my shoes here, at the DVF shoot (along with my friends)! Please take a second to vote for your favorite look:)
