PEACE LOVE & VINTAGE


(everything thrifted from head to toe)
vintage sweater poncho cape, vintage customized southwestern tribal crop tee, vintage southwestern Moroccan fringe bag, Target knit socks, vintage customized Frye ankle boots, turquoise cross necklace from Darine, Mad Lady turquoise tribal cuff, elephant head necklace, vintage bangles and random rings

 So I majority of the day I was wearing just the tee, shorts and yada yada yada. Then I decided to go the Guild Shop by my house which is like a mecca for old broads and antiques. I went to see if any of the overly priced crap I've been secretly stalking have been marked down yet, since the prices go down every month. In the corner of my eye I thought I caught a glimpse of an angel in their clothes section! I was like what the? I don't never really look through the clothes there since I rarely find anything cool. 

But low and behold as I'm walking over I see the poncho of MY DREAMS!! Before I even looked at it I checked the price cause the shit there is expensive...only $4.50, mint condition, SOLD!

When I got home the poncho had the WORST FIT EVER, like booooooooo!! It literally ate me alive and made me look kinda homely. So I did what I do best and I cut that mofo right down the center seam and BOOSH a fucking cardi sweater cape that would have cost you a fortune online!

So next time you see a poncho cape that fits you all the wrong way...cut that bitch down the middle for a new look! 

I added it to my original outfit to make one big southwestern clusterfuck but I LOVE IT!!

P.S. And I promise my next post will be about the shoes, mkay!

Amazing!

Ray said...

That is an incredibly genius idea! I always buy clothing from the thrift store, hoping and praying I can make it work and fit me properly. I mean, c'mon--it's cheap! And cheap to a cheapskate is gold. I sew up holes, and I rip sleeves, but I never thought of doing this for a poncho. Thanks for the inspiration! I'll be sure to link back to this post if ever I do it.
