Now and Then

The thrill and beauty of thrifting is that hidden somewhere between homemade fleece pajamas and acid washed flared jeans are one of a kind precious jewels like a vintage coat or a brand new dress with tags.  [NOTE: Just because it's thrifted does not mean it's vintage.] One thing all thrifted pieces have in common with vintage items is that there is a history; whether its the story of how it got there or where it's been worn.

My mom recently sent me her Faux Leopard Hooded Cape that she wore in the 70s. Amazing. I know. THANKS MOM! Somehow the hood on it gives it  futuristic edge even though its older than...old things.  The richness of the leopard print reminds me of the sleek Moschino Fall 2010 collection paired with deep black and bold red lips.  I wore it with my thrifted black velvet dress (last seen here), thrifted silver hammer cuff $2, and Sephora Lip Attitude in "Chic" C13.  It was also the perfect outfit to wear to Thanksgiving and conceal my food baby.

Clearly I've got a leopard obsession and I'm not letting it go anytime soon. I think I'll throw on all my thrifted leopard at once and put it in a single post so you don't get sick of seeing the same thing over and over. I've got so much leopard in store for you friends, just wait and see!
