Get Cape Wear Cape Fly...

Spring is here! ....well it is supposed to be. Since coming back from the states I have been so freezing cold i've had to wear muliple pairs of socks and hoodies to bed, attractive I know, but there's nothing thats seems to be shaking off the cold lately.

There is an upside to all this weather however, as I seem to only have perfect vintage finds when the seasons are wrong. As Americans going into fall we go plow right into spring so inpiration hits at the wrong time. Luckily this time I could get atleast one use of this vintage 1960s cape I found in the dress up box at a local op-shop! It is beautifully made and has double buttoning on the chest. I'm in love.

Cape: Op-shop
Cardigan (you can't see): Thrifted
Top (worn as a dress): A gift, op-shop.
Knee High Socks: Diva
Shoes: Thrifted

I am a pirate you are a princess...

It's rare I enjoy someones 21st. This time it was my step brothers and it was themed Pirates and Princesses, due to my lack of eye-patch I ended up being the latter. Clad in my poofy 7th formal dress, tavky tiara, eye glitter and my shoe love, picked up from Forever 21 in the States I was off.

Usually packed with binge drinkers and horrible dancers, this 21st was actually enjoyable. After recently having been discovering over 60s and 70s music, whoever created the soundtrack for this party gave me a party soundtrack dream as that was pretty much all that was played. Plus can't complain with free cake.

Dress: Ebay
Shoes:Forever 21
Tights: Farmers
Tiara: Hired

The Dr called while you were out...

I know I'm waaayyy to slow on the boat, but lately Docs have just tugged at my heartstrings. I loved them when the first round of sudden love was thrust upon them and a resurgence of love has just bubbled up after seeing floral and crazy coloured versions of these beasts.

I say beast because it's much like the Disney film. Girl hates said beast....girl tries to run away....beast becomes more and more attractive....girl falls in love with beast and beast transforms into a beautiful prince.......of footwear...

i can only imagine some of the pairing abilities with these this summer! while everyone else is enjoying fall, I can team these with cute floral socks you wore when you were ten and got that embarrassing white sock just me? all right.

I have to pay off my America debts before I even think about touching these. I think one pair would liven up my wailing boot collection however.

let no foot mark your ground let no hand hold you down

So this is my opening post. I though it only best to debut with a September inspiration board. I recently came back from a trip to the U.S.A so my mind seems to be ready for fall....but New zealand isn't, we go stright into summer from here.

Here is me dreaming of layers of lace and knits when i'm really going to have to adjust to blistering hot temperatures. Oh well a girl can dream! for now i'm make doing with the adverage weather here and wearing tights until I can't bear the heat anymore..
