Red Ridinghoodless

Hi, All. I'm back for round two. It's Sunday and that means back to the J.O.B. tomorrow. Not that I'm complaining. I actually love my profession. It's been a good weekend and I hope you had a good one too.

I'm going to do some serious back tracking for the next few posts. As you can tell by the dates, I didn't start this blog at the very beginning of the year. So, I feel I need to bring you up to speed. This outfit is literally what I wore January 2, 2012. January 1st was pretty much spent in sweats with a big pot of gumbo. However, on the 2nd, my husband, Stephen and I went to an auction. I know. It seems like a weird day to conduct one, but that's exactly what happened. It was fairly cool that day and the perfect opportunity to wear this red cape I found on a thrifting expedition. It reminds me of Little Red Ridinghood, only without the hood. I have to rate this as one of my top 10 finds this winter as it was only $2.00. Can't beat that with a stick!
I love emphasizing what I call, the "Thrift Factor" of an outfit. Meaning what percentage of it is thrifted. I have to admit, this isn't as high as usual. Only the cape and the sweater underneath qualify. Thrift factor = 40%

Cape: Thrifted
Sweater: Thrifted
Faded Glory Jeggings via Walmart
Cole Hann Boots via Marshall's circa 2007
Coach purse: Gift from Hubby (I just love him!)

Until the next post, best wishes,

  1. Grey has always been a fan favorite of mine! Thanks so much for linking up to Monday Mingle!

  2. Kristin! Thanks so much for your reply and hosting Monday Mingle. You're my first comment! LOL. I'm still working out the kinks. Only been at it a week.

  3. the thrift factor! I do love when I'm able to get that number into the 90's. Now what do you consider 100% TF? The whole outfit, including shoes and accessories? Inquiring minds LOL.

    Anyway, your cape is fabulous! The boots are nice too.


  4. Hey Tavia, Yes. That would be a 100% I strive for it, but it's a rare happening, only because the purse or shoes are usually not thrifted.

  5. That cape is SUPERB!! I want one!
