NYFW: What I Wore, Day Two!

February 14th, 2014


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.

Zara Cape Coat (similar budget-friendly style here and a gorgeous splurge here), Chanel bag, Express sweater, Forever 21 dress, Samantha Wills necklace, C. Wonder and Gilt bracelets, Jimmy Choo pumps.
