get cape * wear cape * fly

so you already know this post is going to be all about this cape. how could it not? as per usual, new things that enter my wardrobe don't get to stay there too long before i wear them and showcase them here. this fabulous cape with a vintage feel was a christmas present from my guy. he gives the best presents ever. you might remember i did a post last year called cape craving and apparently my guy remembered my wish. he really pays attention, you know, even when i don't think he is . he searched high and low for the perfect one and there it is. it might have to sit in the closet for a little while before the weather becomes a bit warmer, but it was totally worth it freezing my butt off taking these pictures. you can totally tell from the cut, the fabric and all the finishing details that it's super well made. i love the kind of items that you know are going to last forever in your wardrobe and that you might even pass them down to future generations. it does have a kind of timeless quality to it. it might just be the fanciest thing i own, but i am trying to dress it down a bit since it looks kinda elegant to me. i am wearing it with bow printed dress, orange tights and red litas.
