Vintage Plaid Cape!!

I dropped off one of my Goodwill finds two Saturdays ago and hadn't had an opportunity to pick it up until this weekend. Upon pickup, I was thrilled to see how great of a job Sunny's Alterations and Shoe Repair did with the piece.

When I found (okay, scratch that — when Mb found) this green, plaid, wool, lined cape with lucite buttons a few weeks ago on our thrift store shopping spree, I knew I had to have it but realized the seams were coming undone. Not surprising, it's probably from the 60's or 70's. Sunny's did a fabulous job cleaning up the lines and bringing this thing back to life.

For $4.39 plus $10 at the alterations shop, I'm one happy cape owner.

(Note: no tag was to be found in the cape. Maybe it was a custom piece?)

I love it! I thought of you the other day - I went to the Goodwill over in Sandy Springs - I get my hair cut at Van Michael over there and had some time so I stopped in and came out with two blazers. I may have to take a cue from you and do some modeling for my blog (I've been a heinous blogger lately) once they are dry cleaned.

Wow, this really is a great find!!! And with this crazy weather I"m glad you got to wear it before it's 70s again :)

Thanks, PLT!

I can't wait to see your blazer finds. What do they look like? Isn't it awesome to think about what you paid $6 for compared to others' $60? Rock on, girl!

Get back to bloggin'!

PLT, I've enjoyed reading love Maegan over the past few days but now I'm afraid she thinks I'm one of those copycats... I didn't even know her blog existed until two days ago... and I've seen other bloggers post their shopping finds via mac photobooth. What's a girl to do? Or am I overanalyzing? I'm going to go on my own PLT shortly here, aren't I?
