What I Wore

 I finished the vintage cape I altered,
by removing the fringe, hemming, 
and changing the buttons.
Cape, blouse and bracelet: thrift
Leggings, sweater dress, boots,
tee, hat and purse: Target
Leaf pin: vintage



I took a thrifted vintage belt
and altered my black purse,
so I could wear it cross body.

The bit I didn't use on the purse,
I made into a bracelet.

Bye for now!

Love the cape! I'm very "into" tartan type fabrics as of late :-)

I'm all about the capes lately. Yours looks great and I love the addition of the leaf brooch. I've been wearing a lot of leaf jewerly too lately.

What a great idea to add a long strap to a bag. I'm going to try doing the same thing with an old (but lovely) clutch. Thanks for the tip!

Love the ingenuity. Also you look great in the cape and the green and black plaid is a favorite.

You look great in this plaid cape. Clever girl with your alterations, not just the cape but the bag as well.

Your cape is so super stylish, I love the plaid. What a fabulous idea taking a belt and using it for the strap on your purse, and the bracelet too! How inspiring!

Wow! What a coup! You did great, kid. I love to see a piece so much improved by remaking!
Really Excellent!
