In the Canyon.

1960's Brown & Yellow Knit Cape
(a Chicago Vtg. store, $12)
1970's reissue Dittos jeans ($24, Ebay)
1970's Pixie Boots (Thrifted, $4)

I thought it was only right to save this cape from my favorite Chicago vintage store to wear right before our trip back.  We will be Chicago bound for a 4 day trip the day after Christmas.  I can't wait to be in a hotel, and eat at some AWESOME vegan restaurants!  Yes there are others, but 'The Chicago Diner' offers the ultimate vegan comfort food experience.  I'm drooling...  Plus, I love that unsuspecting folks probably walk in all the time (because of the name), and then have to eat all vegan food...  Muahahaha. 

As a thrifter, I see capes regularly, so only the special ones make it home.  This one was in the kids section- so the length is perfect for me!  I love that I can move around like a normal person; in addition to not looking like I'm wearing a knitted trash bag.  (short people have to think of these things).  :)
Two of my old friends come up to visit yesterday, and it was a blast!  We had coffee, followed by Mexican food (drooling again)- plus, I lucked out with a mix cd, and a handmade necklace with a quote from "perks of being a wallflower".  Not bad sir. 
We all read the book in middle/high school, so it's a common link between us all.  If you're reading this Jess:  thank you, and I love it!

I've been listening to Brian Jonestown Massacre again.  Why did I ever stop?
