Being honest here, this is a bit of a cop-out blog post. I have spent the last few weeks indoors recovering from an operation, and will likely have to spend longer recovering, so no pretty outfits for me for a while. *Sob*. However, this does not mean no pretty outfits for you! And, as it happens, I do have quite a few photos & blog post ‘material’ from the past 2 months, that for one reason or another, I hadn’t actually got around to writing or publishing.

The cape is one I found in a charity shop years ago, and get this – it’s reversible! Ah, so exciting! I made the capri pants, the gloves, belt, case & scarf are vintage.
Do you have the same drama’s with capes & cloaks that I seem to have (or is it just me..)
Until next time dear readers!
