Last two capes: my own.
 Black velvet: Shareen Vintage. Purple suede: From the road trip to New Orleans
These pictures remind me why capes are so badass. 
The last two are my own.  The black velvet with embellished shoulders was a find from Shareen Vintage about three years ago.  I saw the Stella McCartney version (pic #5) released this year with the floral embroidered shoulders and it really reminds me of it.  I practically levitated off the ground when I tried it on.  Ironic being a cape. Pics of me in it are here.   The purple suede one was a find during the New Orleans road trip.

Capes are wide so I wear them with skinnies or slim-ish harem bottoms.  For non-vintage I think Felt  or Mango’s military version are good.  Then you can move up to something longer.

For me, capes are a change from leather jackets and wool coats.  Note: they make for dramatic exits and entrances everywhere.  I love that.

ps.  Today’s the last day to get 25% off everything on NastyGal. Good chance to try a cape like this or this one. Code: Nastygalsdoitbetter

    Great capes but I love those shoes in the first picture! I wonder if there’s a male version of them… 🙂

    Is it possible that one may be too petite to wear a cape?

    I love the 7th cape. It’s awesome. And also I must say that hair style looks fits nicely with the face cut.

    Elegant clothes. How about go online shopping at ecdrop.net We girls like beautiful clothes, shoes, handbags, so why not choose a good store for us. I noticed that this store received a good reputation. And the items in their store are of high quality.
