Statement Pieces - The Cape

Heyyyy retro-lovers!

I wanted to show off one of my most loveliest outerwear pieces - a great cape I found at a vintage shop, perhaps a year or two ago. I haven't had a chance to wear it because I couldn't pair it together with other pieces but I've finally worn it and have found that it makes me feel pretty sophisticated and super elegant.

It's a nice plaid pattern of green and mustard with a nice mustard colored lining and gold colored buttons. Plus, it's got pockets..verrrry important, yes?  I wore it with a tan colored sweater top and whiskey colored wing tip heels.  Browns or neutrals seems to go best with it. Spring is almost here so I'm not sure how many more times I can wear this but, the less I wear it, the longer it'll last? Behold! ;)

Do you have a statement piece that's been rockin' your world? Do tell me about it or link me to your photos!

Love it! You could always wear it with a dress right? Just wondering in case I stumble upon one lol! Looks great.

Oh my goodness, I've missed your blog SO MUCH. Welcome back. Put on your tightest pencil skirt and rock the hell out of that cape, honey. I want one so bad.

@mitchellzee, I think it would look really nice over a dress, very dramatic!

@Desiree, Thanks for the welcome! Feels good to be back! I think I'm due for some more pencil skirts, I haven't been sewing as much but it's time! I do have a tight brown one that might go well with it :)

@Wardrobeexperience, thank you! I think I need one in every color now, it takes all my strength not to wear it daily ;)

@charish, I am! Sound the bells! :D
