Fashion Friday: Vintage from within the Family

A good 6 or 7 months ago, my Nana Carmen {as seen busting a move here} gave me a cape that she had owned. She asked I put it to good use and mentioned she could not foresee herself wearing it again however thinks I would really enjoy it. Of course I didn't put up a fight, I had so many idea's on how I could work it into my daily life and of course my Fashion Posts. I made a few changes to it by cutting off all the tassels hanging at the bottom and I did think about changing its buttons, however I have yet to find anything I feel suitable. So for now, she stays this way....basking in her vintage glory.

Now not only do I have my love/passion/obsession for Tea to thank my Nana for, but my Fashion now too! 

On a side note: Sorry about the photo locations lately. But by the time I get off of work, its horror-movie-dark outside, and for my safety, and of course my photographer - its just best we do it indoors. 

Stay tuned on Monday for a Review on my Skirt {which I am wearing in this post} from Shock Boutique.
