Purple on Purple : Caped Crusader

gray cape - purple outfit - miu miu shoes-burgundy bag

What I’m wearing
* Gray wool cape by Trovata… seen once here with my cat stockings, so fun!
* Vintage sheer striped blouse was my grandma’s… also seen here.
* Purple skinny jeans… courtesy of Hudson. Seen once here w/ my snaky french braid.
* Vintage earrings, were also my Grandma’s. Wrist cuffs are Tuleste and were a gift from Julie and I just wore them both here
* DIY safety pin belt. So easy. Surprisingly versatile… with a touch of rockstar. I push all the pins to the front and they happen to fit just within the parameters of the two front belt loops.
* Cynthia Rowley burgundy bag.
* Vintage sunglasses.
* Miu Miu wool ankle boots… seemingly sold out everywhere but Bluefly where the sale price is way higher than all the other sites that had them on sale. I wore them all day and only had a little blister where the peep hit my toe. Otherwise, surprisingly comfortable. I love the sturdy heel.

Where I would have normally worn this outfit to work, when I got dressed to spend the day with the husband, running errands, lunching, etc., it seemed like too much. Don’t get me wrong, I love it. I would have worn it to work and then anywhere I may have gone after work but now, it all seems so fussy…

* note: the jeans photograph much brighter than they are in reality {see every other photo} so I’ve adjusted many of the photos so the purples show correctly. Also noting that I obviously feel the need to disclaim everything.

    I love the purple on purple with the cape – you make it seem so easy! But you’re right too “fussy” for errand running with the hubs. Good thing you look gorgeous in anything!

    haha I love you! your comment about disclosing everything made me giggle! i did a post about a brush holder and then proceeded to write a footnote about it.
    purple (aubergine specifically) is my favorite color.

    I think you could wear a burlap sack and look fabulous!!! That should be your next DIY. 🙂 I love the cape. I was playing with one at Nordstrom a few weeks ago. Might have to hunt it back down.
