“The Fabulous THRIFT SHOP Challenge!” Fall/Winter Capes 2015 ~ vs ~ TOO CHEAP BLONDES Thrift Store Shopping for CAPES
2015 Fall/Winter Essential Wardrobe Piece: a Cape!
Capes were spotted everywhere during Paris Fashion week! Traditional jackets have been given the cold shoulder this season. When you see a woman in a cape don’t you imagine them as being a confident fashionista with a sensational wardrobe? But let’s be honest, don’t you feel you might look silly if you don’t style it right? I know that we sometimes have a hard time actually pulling off a cape without feeling a little “out there.”
Here are a few articles we found that will give you some more insight and inspiration for pulling off this fabulous trend:
This plaid cape that Jen is wearing looks outdated in a thrift store, but when you add a scarf and gloves .. you have upped your game to movie star status! (we found this cape for only $2.00)
This idea of taking a traditional cape and adding a fur collar (which we find ALL the time in thrift stores) is amazing!
Be prepared to make a stunning impression on everyone who sees you!
