All Wrapped Up

29 December 2010













Hello Hello! I am back from my travels for just a bit
and I found some time for a little outfit post. I
got this cape a few Christmases ago and re-discovered
it in my closet when I came home from school this year.
Don't you just love re-finding long lost treasures in your
closet? Nothing beats making something old new again.

I was contemplating doing a year's re-cap on this post, but
I think I will do it on my next post when I feature my
NYE outfit. I do love New Years quite a lot! This year
I will be hitting up a few parties with some good friends.
Really all I need to ring in the new years right, is my
best friends. And some bubbly of course :)

What are you doing this year for NYE?

Bonnie, you're such a cutie in that cape! I always find random things in the back of my wardrobe that I'd completely forgotten about. Your New Year plans sounds great. Have tons of fun!

Amanda, The Upside of Wonder said...

I LOVE that cape....and are those owls on the lining??? Ugh, amazing.

I'm so burnt out on doing so many things for Christmas, I haven't even thought about New Years! Last year, me and Gavin cooked a ton of food during the day and just ate it all night with friends. Maybe we'll do something like that again this year.

Zu said...

Aah, the platforms are legendary.

Only one question I have. How is it even possible to forget about such a lovely piece as the cape and re-discover it few years after? I would wear it all year long, even in the summer with cotton dresses:-)

(I'm kind of a cape maniac, I must admit.)

You remind me of Snow White, only in 21st century ! ^^ lovely outfit.

What is the point, really, of constantly buying clothes all the time? Oh yeah, you have to be trendy. Well you're trying way too hard.

Anonymous said...

fashion bloggers are the epitome of banality. youre like the "alternative" version of girls who tan, get plastic surgery, wear juicy velor tracksuits, and care about nothing but buying new clothes. honestly its just disgusting, im glad im not you.

If only you knew how stupid you are.

Anonymous said...

this is a ridiculous excuse for an outfit! seriously? whats your purpose in life? id really like to know. if it has anything to do with clothes youre a dumb ass.

Anonymous said...

i hope the new year brings you great misfortune and disappointment. or at least opens your eyes to how dumb you are, and how many people know it.
