I have been a fan of Lindsey Thornburg's capes ever since first spying them this fall in Looc. Unfortunately, the number on the price tag kept me from acquiring any of her designs. Imagine my surprise at finding the same mini-cloak deeply discounted, for sale at Shopbop last week......add to bag, check out and in two days, at my doorstep.
You can probably tell from the photos that it instantly induces happiness upon wearing. Or maybe I was having a little too much fun with my guest photographer for the day (my mother!)?
Thornburg started creating her instantly recognizable cloaks in 2006 and expanded with a full ready to wear collection in 2010. Now based of of NYC, Thornburg originally hails from Aspen, Colorado. Her western roots were on full display with her latest line of cloaks. I will be on the look out for more of her wares when I am in New York soon- on the short list, a stop at Maryam Nassir Zadeh which carries Thornburg among other faves of mine (Isabel Marant and Rachel Comey to name a few).
Mom and I had a delightful outing this weekend, grabbing a sushi lunch and hitting up our fave shopping spot, the T J Maxx at Freshpond (of course!). I am my mother's daughter and she passed on the bug for T J Maxx and Marshalls at a very young age. No purchases for me this weekend but I had a hard time passing on a bright yellow Fendi shoulder bag (click here for image)....swoonworthy! This lovely retailed for over $1200 last season and was hanging out at TJ Maxx well below its original price at $799. Chairs for the new driftwood table (posted here), slated for delivery this week, take precedence over a bag however.
