Expressing Your Inner on the Outer

Tracee Cape

Sometimes a piece a clothing creates a feeling, sometimes even a scene (at least that’s what happens for me)! I discovered this cape in a friend’s storage unit and it just made me want to RUN… Hahaha!

So I recently posted a video in which I shared some of my favorite reworked vintage pieces (if you missed it, check it out here), and I was so excited by your responses! I love hearing that other people share a passion for vintage clothing. One reader, who commented as “Sing”, even submitted a picture of her reworked pieces, and they’re just gorgeous. I mean look at her! Lady, I may not know your name, but I love your picture! Anyways, this reader’s creativity inspired me to pose a challenge to you all: SHOW ME YOUR REWORKED VINTAGE! Leave pictures of your favorite vintage pieces in the comment section (you just might get a shout out in my next video)!

Tracee Shoes UNCF

So, I recently had the honor of presenting the United Negro College Fund’s “Evening of the Stars.” It was a great night, and I met the MOST inspiring young people! I love the teens! I’ll be sharing a lot more in the days to come, but go ahead and mark your calendars and set your DVRs now because the show airs January 27th on BET! There’s music, inspirational stories, and so much fun. Don’t miss it!

But the point of this post, is to talk about the shoes I wore to this event. Well they’re not so much shoes, as they are foot sculptures. There is nothing, and I mean NOTHING comfortable or wearable about these shoes. They are, however, gorgeous. So I just thought of them as jewelry for the feet, and hobbled and winced my way down the red carpet. I have a secret though: I didn’t just bring these shoes to the event.
