Poncho Blanket


The poncho is a find from a vintage shop in Philladelphia - of all places - about a year ago.

Poncho: Boutique in Philadelphia. Try Revolve, Topshop or Asos.  Jeans: Zara. Boots: Balenciaga. Clutch: Valentino. Try Rebecca Minkoff.  Shades: NastyGal

Even though ponchos have been around forever, I rarely see women in them.  I say GO FOR IT and get yourself one because 1.  Poncho's don't date.  2.  You have a coat.  3. It does this whole Batman cape flowing thing when you walk - yes I really said that. 

The pattern on this one reminds me of our blanket from Mexico which I have sitting in the chest at the end of the bed.  I pull it out to cover my legs while watching TV.  The fact that this one is ultra long sold it for me and no - there are no personalized initials on this one like the Burberry one that's having a serious street style moment!  I mean what if you want to sell it later? Yes I really said that too. 

I found a few good ones shown below at diff price points and don't forget to still check out vintage as well either locally or via eBay or Etsy!

Blow The Budget or...

spend or save

Rag and Bone Isadora jumper vs.  Warehouse 'Fluffy Animal' jumper

I know which one I would go for.

I had to ask Aida

"My jeans are by Pepe. My hat and cardigan are from LF.  My bag is from Spain.  My t-shirt is Zara."

So easy and casual.  I loved this run in with Aida on Prince street Nolita district recently!  I saw this hairy-like cardi on Asos that's a good take on hers.   If you order tell me what it's like.
