Well lovelies, as I'm sure you can all relate, when you spend a lot of money on something, it's always nice to hear a little justification. You know, to help you sleep at night for risking the next rent check. Much to my delight, my dear friend Christine of My Style Pill, happened to purchase this very beautiful (and hefty price tag bearing) Zara camel cape on the same day that I did.
Here's a snippet of our texts from that day:
Me: So, did you get it??
Christine: Jesus. Yes.
Me: Yay! Yay! So happy! :)
Christine: Eeeeeps! So. Much. Money!
Me: I better see it on My Style Pill asap
Christine: I am going to remix the crap out of this cape.
And with that, we thought it best to remix the crap out of this cape, together. Hold on, folks, it's going to be a wild ride. I mean, look at it. It's a beautiful cape, no? Do go scoot over and see how she styles it up. Go ahead. I'll wait here for you. We'll each be posting a new, remixed outfit with the cape on Wednesday and Friday of this week.
Also, while we're sharing text conversations, here's how a recent one went with the boyfriend on my way to pick up said cape:
Me: I'm going to pick up the most beautiful cape. Ever. Right now.
Him: Oh ya? You getting your costume for Halloween ready?
Me: No! For like, real life.
Me: Um, yes. Aren't you used to this by now?
Him: If there's anyone who can pull it off, it's you.
