Oh, the Cape Coat.
Helping bloggers dress for fashion week since… oh… 2011 or so.
Seriously, the first time I wore this cape coat to Lincoln Center, I made New York Magazine’s Best Dressed list… which is sort of a shocker, quite honestly, because those pants did not fit me *at all* and I’m not sure what was going on with the boot-tucking thing. Because the pants are kind of bunched up at the top of my ankle boots… and not in a good way. (Is there a good way for pants to be bunched up at your ankles? My guess is no.)
The cape though: very cute.
So I wore it again next season. Much better… except, oh my gosh, I was *freezing*! The thing about wearing a cape to Fashion Week in New York in February?
If you’re not an idiot, you wear something with sleeves underneath it.
But, alas, I am an idiot. So no sleeves.
This season, though. This season I did it right. Maybe it took protecting an unborn child to knock some sense into me… or maybe I’ve finally gotten the hang of this whole dressing-for-fashion-week thing.
Because this outfit?
This one I’m digging very much.
