Do you remember when I was super excited about The Scandal for The Limited collection? I was in the dressing room trying on those infamous wrap coats that supposedly mimicked what Ms. Pope wore on the show and that killer tulip hem dress. It was fun! Okay, how about when I posted this picture of me in “the cape” on IG? Remember that? Well, I have a confession…I initially had zero interest in this cape! I was asked about the fit and tried it on so that I can give one of my IG followers the info. It’s chicness was a pleasant surprise, and although I was totally unsure about what I would do with it/wear with it/where I would wear it to, I purchased it. I chose to take it for a spin on a casual Sunday for dinner with the family. I know the holidays are gone, but I said these were LOST FILES, so bear with me and the background. Wink.
Since I loved it so much when I tried it on, I decided to stick with the same style game plan – a white button up and jeans. This time, I went with gray everything. It wasn’t quite cold enough for the gloves like it was the day before. Memphis weather. Sigh. But, this cape and those gloves just go together like Anna Wintour and Vogue. Sidenote: I’m really loving monochromatic looks lately. You?
According to Q, capes are very ‘of the moment’, but have been around for quite some time. Finding one in a neutral, like gray, camel, or black, can quickly become a closet staple for many winters . I definitely plan on getting more use out of mine before spring comes.
