the cape









Raspberry red silk cape, vintage from Lailo (barcelona). Lace dress, Gina Tricot. Shoes, Minimarket. Necklaces, Efva Attling + vintage (Miami).

VOILA. When I saw it in the window at the vintage shop Lailo, I knew I had to have it. When I tried it on, it was like we where ment for each other. It was love at first sight. According to the owner of the boutique it had been used at the opera in Barcelona before which makes it even more special (I love garment that has a history!). Before I bought it my boyfriend asked me when I planned on using it. – When I’m going to the grocery store to buy milk! I replied. It’s by far the most gorgeous thing I have _ever_ owned.
