I have debated a cape purchase for a couple of seasons now…I love my ponchos so I figured I would love a cape. Especially in the Fall when it just starts getting colder at night. So, I found one I liked and took the plunge! This cape has an orange chevron pattern on it with pink satin lining. Even though I don’t like the color pink, the contrast in the colors is fun and energizing even if I am the only one who really sees the inside. The attention to detail though is wonderful from the cool buttons and stitching to the amazing bag it came in. Seriously, how can you not love a purchase that comes in a cool black bag on a hanger so it’s all ready to go when you get it!! Oh–it has zippered pockets and was handmade. If you are Lucky Mag subscriber, there is a deal in the October (pretty sure it was this one) issue.
You could wear a cape with anything and dress it up or down. Today, I chose a pair of off-black skinny jeans and a favorite t-shirt. I’m still having trouble with my back so flat boots were in order. I kept everything else simple…a vintage ring and bag matched up with a wide cuff and handmade earrings that I have had forever.
