Vintage Vibes

CasaLoma_1

All my friends know I love good vintage finds. I love a Saturday spent popping around my favourite designer vintage stores in the city looking for yet another pair of shoes or a classic purse. Buying vintage is a great way to satisfy some of my expensive cravings for a little less. If you have your eye on a classic piece, try checking sites like Ebay or Etsy and with a bit of patience you may just find what you’re after. On this day I was wearing a pair of vintage Ferragamo loafers and my vintage Chanel purse – both great wardrobe staples now and both were in mint condition when I bought them.

I paired these two classic items with a statement jacket and a wool cape. I have recently recognized how wonderful and warm capes are. I am loving pairing a wool cape over a thinner jacket. The look is relaxed and cool and the cape is great at keeping the heat inside and close to your body.
