A Complete Outfit for $25!

Here I am wearing a complete outfit for $25. I tell you it is good to have friends. A friend visited Ethiopia and brought back this comfy cape for me. So much better than a keychain, right? I swapped Joe's jeans with another friend. I've thrifted several pairs that do not fit me so I gave her a pair and she gave me a pair of hers.

I love the cape. Red, gold, and green is one of my favorite color combinations. It's the color of the Ethiopian flag and adopted by Rastafarian and dreadlock culture. While not Rastafarian, I agree with certain aspects of the culture like....equality of all people. What did you think I meant? My "Snoop Lion" days are behind me. If this randomness makes no sense at all to you, message me and I will explain. :)



Now back to the program. It's a lightweight jersey and I can't wait to wear it while having lunch al fresco....I think spring fever is setting in! I'm so anxious for the warm weather. The days are longer and when the sun comes out it looks like a warm breezy day. Not so, it is deceptively cold around these parts.

While I feel compelled to twirl around in it, V prefers to wear it with her arms outstretched. She proudly proclaims she's super duper when I wrap it around her.

I need to put in a jeans hems. I've tucked them under for now. They are super long! I am so jeans challenged. It's hard to find a great pair. I know I'm not alone. Do you have the perfect pair (of jeans)?

Completed the outfit with my $5 Gap sweater from a consignment shop and the left baby toe killing booties I got for a steal at Amazon.

Love the cape, great outfit! I'm convinced one day I'll find the perfect pair of jeans, still on the hunt. Sorry about the toe! :)

Love the cape! And you're glowing. :)

Sorry that you're feeling jeans challenged. Not to boast, but I have a half dozen 'perfect' pairs. I find Joes, Theory and Lucky Brand jeans fit me wonderfully.

Love it!! Why am I winding it up though?? Ok, I will behave.#Reggaefan

Now, your cape is gorgeous and the lighting is so perfect for your shots. Ugh, the price of beauty. I do not have the perfect jeans in every cut, that would be a dream. Sorry about your poor pinky toe..those boots were not made for walking.
