An outfit post is on it's way, pinky promise. But for now I thought I'd do my good deed of the day, and share with you all a fabulous ebay find.....only one bid so far, for this gorgeous green beaded Edwardian cape. In seemingly fabulous condition, it's a bargain at only £80. Normally I'd smugly keep this to myself in the hopes of avoiding a bidding war, but I've been spending too much recently so I'll give someone else a chance.
...And because I'm actually an old lady trapped inside a 20-something's body, I spend a lot of time looking at antiques online and marvelling over the craftsmanship that went into clothing. Last night I found this beautiful cape, which nicely carries on the green cape theme this post seems to be developing. Here we have a House of Worth cape, c.1900.
Oh go on then, one more. Another House of Worth creation, green velvet cape with lace and beaded fringing. Swoooon.
