Again With the Cape

I’m glad that, before the full heat of summer hit, I was able to get in one more wear of my cape. I can barely put into words how attached I am to this piece – I purchased it on a lark and it very quickly became one of my favourite things in my closet (side note, I basically have little T-Rex arms in it if I try to raise them, which I find endlessly amusing). I grew even fonder of my cape when I paired it with this lace-sleeved shirt.

pants: Simons / booties: Aldo / cape: BB Dakota / shirt: Contemporaine

Capes have never worked on me, so I love seeing you wear them so well - it gives me a chance to live my cape life vicariously through your fabulous outfits. The addition of the lace top under the cape really is genius, it takes the style to an entirely different level.

LOVE that cape, it looks gorgeous on you and that lace top absolutely elevates it as well. And I hear you on the cooler days, I'm still trying to sneak in my fave sweater, and wool cocktail dress before the heat sets in, and is non-stop!! xo

I love it with the lace peeking through as well!! Such a fun piece!
You should walk around like the Emperor in Star Wars in that, haha! (The T-Rex arms made me think of it)

This looks so good, but confess: is it easy to wear? The reason I ask is because
I saw a very similar beautiful cape sans zipper last week and tried it on and could not move in it! I loved how cool it looks, totally flawless but then I tried to lift my arms and carry a handbag and it was not possible, so I put it back.

I'm really enjoying the thought of your t-rex arms, and the pairing with the lace really is wonderful. I never really embraced the cape, but I do have a vintage one hanging in my closet if I ever decide to give it another try.

A good cape is such a great piece, I am in love with this one! You'll have to enjoy the chillier days we're having to bust this baby out again.
