Vintage Fate!

THIS is why I ended up not being able to get that wonderful pink couch for Christmas. Wonderful fate! I've been looking for the perfect vintage cape/cloak for YEARS. They have all either been too expensive, the wrong size, or not quite right for whatever reason. This is the first thing I laid eyes on in the vintage store I went to yesterday, but it seemed too good to be true! Everything about it is perfect though! Thanks Mom!

Does anyone here know the actual difference between a cape and a cloak? I asked my mom in the store, and her answer was, "I don't know, a cloak has to be shrouded in darkness?" I burst out laughing so hard, but I like that distinction. There was no real reason to wear it yesterday, so I ended up just wearing it around the house, over pajamas. It was pretty stylish!

What vintage goodies are people hoping for this Holiday?

This couch was at the thrift store over the weekend and it was love at first sight. I asked my Mom if it was too ridiculous for a Christmas present, and she said no. Sadly, she went back for it today (since I live an hour away) but it was already gone. Sorry pink brocade couch, we would have been awesome together. I've never been a huge "GIVE ME PRESENTS!" kind of girl, so I seriously can't think of anything else to ask for, practical or impractical. Any ideas?
