LIKE TO HAVE: CLOAK at RAC TORONTO

September 25, 2010

Let autumn begin! This poncho is made for me and I’ve spotted it on the website of Rac Boutique in Toronto. Don’t you just want to crawl underneath it and just be with you and your lovely fabric? 🙂 It’s from American fashion designer Lindsey Thornburg. She went to Peru a couple of years ago and got inspired by their fashion. So she made this beautiful cloaks when she returned. Price: 800 euro.
