Haberdashery!





Blue Suede Cape: courtesy of Haberdash Vintage
Belt: Vintage ($1)
Tights: UO ($14)
Dress: AA ($40)
Shoes: GAP ($34)

How amazing is this blue suede cape from Haberdash Vintage? I have been searching for the perfect cape for months now and had yet to find anything special. Well my search was over when Punky presented me with this beautiful royal blue number. It came with a separate belt, but for convenience sake I just used the belt I was wearing with my outfit today. I think it works just the same. I really wanted to do more of a dedicated photoshoot with it, but unfortunately the sky was clear on my lunch break only so I had to work with what I got (it's thundering out right now!). You may have noticed my photo shoots have been a bit different lately, the truth is that after spending the cold winter months with just the parking lot as a backdrop, I'm bored with it! I've been taking advantage of the nice weather and exploring different locations.

To celebrate the 1 year aniversary of Haberdash, Punky is offering 30% off for Orchid Grey readers! Use the code "ORCHIDGREY" at checkout. Thanks Punky!

Your hair looks like Sienna Miller's from when she was on Vogue's September cover a few years back. You look fantastic!

Clare said...

That is such an incredibly fun cape. I love the style, the color, the detailing, and how perfectly it fits into your wardrobe!

Punky said...

I really love this outfit. I haven't been much of a fan of most of the capes I've seen, but this one is really great. I love the buttons and the collar, and the general shape.
And that belt is an amazing find. $1 for something so cute seems like it should be impossible!


P.S. I rented Grey Gardens and watched it Saturday night. I don't even really know what to say about how I feel about about it. The only thing I can think of is at the end of the Drew Barrymore version when Big Edie said "You're an acquired taste, babe."
I think I acquired her.

myedit said...

Heck yes! This cape is such a great piece... I love how you used a different balt, it makes it look casual but still very unique.

That cape is fabulous! I also really love that little owl belt of yours.

megan.tme said...

The cape is amazing, I love how it buttons up and therefore less constrictive than traditional capes (and might I add, the buttons are amazing). Congrats on the Glamour.com feature!!!

Oh, I've been seeing lots of bloggers with capes lately and it sort of makes me want one too--especially since they're so different and cool!

I have that same pair of tights, but mine has a bunch of holes everywhere. They are unfortunately very dainty...

Lovely outfit! The belt is really cute!

WOWZA i am seething with jealousy over this entire outfit!!! that cape is the best one i've ever seen- i love the deep blue color, and the soft suede- it's gorgeous. the fact that you've paired it with the OWL BELT (!!!) and heart tights just adds to the perfection of the whole look. love it! ~joelle

It was nice to meet you today! I actually recognized you from the back by the hair and the skirt.

I'm a bit mortified that it happened on the one day I was dressed like a complete slob and a mess from exercising, but worth the embarrassment.

Kimberellie said...

If you ever have an intense desire to get rid of that cape, I will help you out. I swear it. In a minute. I will be there for you.

So so so awesome. Let me repeat myself, so so so awesome. Yes, I love your cape. And YOU also look awesome.

WILDasaMINK said...

The cape is fabulous! But, can I just tell you I'm obsessed with vintage owls-so if/when you want to rid your life of that belt, just email me-I'll gladly take it off your hands, for way more than the $1 you payed for it.
OK? THANKS!
