Little Red Riding Cape | What would you wear with it?

I meant to share this thrift store score weeks ago when I found it, but it somehow slipped off of my radar. Whilst browsing the coat rack at my local Goodwill, I came across the above red cape. And with its $5 price tag, I couldn't resist taking it home with me. I have a big soft spot for Little Red Riding Hood and even though this cape is minus the hood, it feel fairy tale-like all the same. With Iowa's autumn turning cold and rainy, winter is right around the corner. So I'm trying to figure out how to style this lovely bit of clothing. Here are some ideas:

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
