100% Thrifted Pick of the Week (9.29.08)


Perfect Fall Cape, originally uploaded by anja louise verdugo.

Ok, I know I said I wasn’t going to do a picks post until next week, but then Anja went and posted THIS, and I just could not resist. I kinda already wanted a vintage cape for Fall but after seeing these amazing photos, I can honestly see finding one becoming a full blown obsession! Thanks Anja ;) What can I say? I love it. It’s perfect. End of story.

These photos are part of a really cool lookbook she put together for her vintage shop. Definitely check it out for some wonderful Fall inspiration. The styling is awesome and I really
love the subtle vintage photo treatments. Nice job Anja!

A cape obsession is hard to shake! I'm glad you like the photos. :)

That is a super amazing cape. I've never been able to pull off a cape myself (possibly due to shortness/natural untidiness) but I sense that you will find an amazing one and it will be perfect on you!

I love the lookbook...the one in the plaid with the bike is very twin peaks

I just blogged one of the other ones too. Her look book is perfection personified! Bring on the fall is what I say.

Wow, what an amazing cape that is! <3
I've been searching for a cape myself for quite some time now, but i can only find boring ones, not like this one at all!

Lovely post, dear!

What a fantastic cape and I couldn't agree more about the styling.

That really is a wonderful cape. I have a cape too, that I've not yet been brave enough to wear, but now I'm inspired I think I'll pull it out again!

Also letting you know I tagged you on my blog today, even though I'm sure you've already received this one! But I really do love your blog :)

Wow, it looks amazing on her! Thanks for the link in her shop, such inspiring clothing and accessories!

that's my mother's cape! OMG it's traveled EVERYWHERE. I'm looking for a pic of mom wearing it - what a hoot it would be to put pics side by side.

Such a great fall cape! The print is so retro but relevant for the fall!
