I couldn’t resist getting intimate with the 1930s feather capelet I will cherish for the rest of my days.
I am so grateful.

    What a lucky girl. The capelet was made for you! The colour is absolutely breathtaking.

    Superb cape. It has something of a music-hall starlet about it.

    I have a beautiful pink one it cost me a weeks wage luckily I was living at home. If there was a fire (heavens forbid) it is top of the list of things to be saved. Its rare to find them and they are usually expensive to buy in the UK.

    Thank you everyone!

    @Josie I’m happy I bought it too. But I was literally shaking when I gave them the cash just because it was so much and I felt guilty spending so much on it!

    @Valerie yes, I think the color is perfect!

    @Leilani I like to think it was made for me too! That would explain the obsession!

    @perdita I know! I just look at it and think GLAMOUR and STARLET!

    @Monique I’d LOVE to see pics of your pink one. Sounds amazing! They are indeed very rare. I think that’s why I couldn’t pass this one up.
