cape crusader

cape - American Apparel, sweater - Dangerfield, skirt - made by me, everything else vintage/thrifted

I bought this cape quite a number of years ago from American Apparel. It was rather expensive but I justified it because it's wool and a neutral colour and a pan collar and I really, really wanted it. I wore it a handful of times but then my style changed and it was banished to the back of my wardrobe until a summery warm day this year when I realised that capes + pencil skirts = perfect vintage style!!


My hair was a bit of an epic fail turned accidental kind of win, I set my hair but the top layer didn't want to play nice so I had to improvise. Turned out ok in the end!

  2. Cute! Capes are the one fashion trend I've never embraced, looks a little too weird on my frame. You rock it!

  4. Capes and coats are items worth spending more on, in my opinion. Although now that I have many coats and 3 capes, I probably can stop. But the capes are going to be a staple of my winter maternity wardrobe, just sailing over the expanding frame :)

    This is a great outfit and suits you really well. I think capes, being so voluminous, do need a narrow bottom half, so pencil skirts are perfect. I mostly wear them with jeans.

    1. I think I'm starting to believe that! Nothing like a good quality coat to last a few winters.
      Thank you! Skinny jeans would probably work too.
