a bit balmain

Black velvet cape: Shareen vintage. Jeans: H&M. Boots: YSL Homme. Satchel: Vintage Coach. Knit jumper: Vintage. Shades: Urban Outfitters

Here’s the cape I told you lot about and by God do I love. It has one large button at the neck to close it and sits comfortably on the shoulders because it’s got a good weight. Wore it a few days ago with jeans and the leos (posted before here and here).

You know the knitted jumper (sweater). I wear it back to front. Long term readers know what it looks like uncovered.

ps. I’m addicted to these vintage Coach satchels. Old leather. Brass hardware. The shape. Everything. This is the brown version to this red one. Both identical. Both love.

    Holy Capes Batman! This is absolute perfection. I want a great cape like that, even if it is still 84 degrees here in Ft Lauderdale.
