At the Ga/Fla football game last weekend, I spotted a girl who couldn’t have been more than 16 with the wardrobe that I aspire to own. She was wearing muted burnt orange skinny jeans, fringed ankle boots, a white silky peasant blouse, and the most beautiful green tweed cape. A cape! I didn’t know that I loved capes until the very moment I saw hers… and then I knew.
The problem: I was a total idiot and did not walk the 5-feet to ask the lovely 16-year-old where she got her perfect cape. Hence, I am cape-less.
So here are 5 almost perfect capes that are my inspiration for the upcoming Winter of 2014. I will say it now publicly so I can’t back out later… I will find a cape and I will out-dress that 16-year-old this winter.
Without further ado, the FriYAY Faves:
Anyone know of a good place to get a cape? Preferably tweed? And green? And that of an Old-English hunting trip that would also look super cute in the heart of a bustling city? (The one of the far right is my favorite.)
Sadly, all of the above pictured lovelies are either 1. sold out, 2. from years past and thus unavailable, or 3. wayyyyyy out of my price range. Also, I apparently need a horse to go along with my cape… So the search continues.
But in you’re in the market for a fabulous vest, check out my 5 fave vests of this season!
