Currently crushing on...Erdem Kasuma embroidered wool cape
The last time I felt like this about a cape was probably when I was in 3rd grade and I wanted to dress up as "Red riding hood" for a fancy-dress competition at school .
I actually bullied my poor mother into getting a gross little red velvet cloak stitched
for me by the local tailor.
The episode didn't quite go as planned because I seem to remember feeling a little silly as people glared at me uncomprehendingly. So I never wanted to wear the cape after the show, which by the way, was won by some dull and predictable little bunny or butterfly, I can't remember.
That is probably why I have always thought "cloaks and capes" only work well in fairy tales not in real life.
But the way I feel now about this really grown-up cloak is quite different!
It seems surprisingly wearable and very very stylish , it will probably bring on glares of a totally different kind- the kind that leave you feeling smug.
