Blossoming

Cape- Vintage, Tunic and tights- Forever21, Wedges- Cooperative (Via UO)

The cherry blossoms are finally coming out! They've been very slow to bloom in my neighborhood because of the weather-- hoping to make it down to the Tidal Basin this weekend to get some good pictures! 

Have you ever bought a multi-piece thrifted/vintage outfit just because you like the jacket or the skirt and they wouldn't be sold separately otherwise? This sheer floral cape came with an old granny wedding-party dress of the same pattern (but not sheer-- that would have been one scandalous granny!) that actually has some alteration potential. 

Congrats to Kathleen Carla of Inspirafashion for winning the blue lace top giveaway!

  1. I've seen things in wrong sizes which I've thought could have been awesome. That cape is so pretty and flowy--I'm sure that it was fun to wear. The print is so dreamy :)
