Here is the cape I have been fondly talking about since I got it a few weeks back. I've been wanting a cold-weather cape for years now, but just never found one that suited my tastes that I could try on before purchasing (am I the only one who is totally wary of buying clothes online?) I've always thought that any outfit looks a bit more chic when you put a cape over it. I mean, do I even need a top when I'm reluctant to take off my cape? Probably.
Anywho, this past year, I lucked out and found this darling at the Banana Republic outlet! Factoid: I used to spend my paychecks in high school at Banana Republic (and Nordstrom) before I went through a slight Hot Topic phase. True story.
