Don’t you turn your back on love
It was one of those Sundays at the Melrose Trading Post that I literally came looking for one item and left with way more than I should have. Scouring the racks for a simple vintage black gypsy dress, this gem of a cape caught my eye and I instantly knew I wasn’t leaving the lot without it. Psychedelic velour flowers that should be on the raddest couch of all time but made into a brass-buttoned cape for me to wear? Heaven. I had no luck bargaining the seller down (I walked back THREE times with a different offer) but caved anyway. Before I even had a chance to dry clean the vintageness outta it, I brought it down to Long Beach to meet up with my girl Ashley Myers to do an impromptu shoot after a few early afternoon beers.
