Vintage Plaid Poncho Cape

You know what I really love? Capes. And cape-like coats; ponchos, shawls if you will. These items aren't worn much. Albeit, there are moments when for the dramatic flare, you'll see these for sale in haute couture lines. But, it's always seasonal, and they don't quite relate to the everyday person. I mean, we're not all Count of Monte Cristos who need to wear these when revenge is occurring. Nor are we living on a green isle where these coats look amazing against the natural backdrop. And you'd be crazy NOT to wear one there. You have to. Anyone would look great in one there, or in New Zealand with the Lord of the Rings. Okay, I'm tangenting. (◄ tangenting is NOT a word. I know...)

No, capes are a hard look to pull off.

Yet, this vintage cape is quite versatile. It's great for Fall and Winter, plus it isn't too long or overpowering to where you'll look like you just stepped out of the Victoria era. I paired it here with a modern beanie (from Closet Candy Boutique) and skinny jeans, and you've got another great outfit that mixes the old with the new and now, everyone will want to know where you got it ...

Perennial Vintage Turns Ten

Winter Sweaters in the Shop It's hard to believe for me, but on November 30th, 2010 I began my foray into the world of Etsy vintage. A lot has changed since then. And I don't mean just in the world. I mean in Etsy itself. When I opened shop a decade ago, there were so few sellers compared to now, and things sold much faster because there was such little competition. But competition is good. It makes us more creative and promotes grit: both of which are necessary for growth and success. And I have to say, this has been THE MOST creative, fun, rewarding, and exciting work I've ever had. I took a hobby and learned to make a little profit from it on the side. Even though this is a business for me now, selling vintage is still my hobby. While it's nice to monetarily benefit from it, it isn't the only reason I do it. The reason I sell vintage is simple: I love vintage.  I want to preserve it, research it, wear it, love it, talk about it, and naturally, I want to sell  i

You have heard of Etsy, right? They're the online site that hosts thousands of small companies who sell hand made items or vintage items.  I sell on Etsy (vintage) and I know how amazing Etsy and all the shops and stores are.
