It’s only the beginning of January but I’m already dreaming of better midwestern weather. Better weather in which wearing capes seems more practical than say, puffy ski coats (just kidding, I haven’t owned one of those since the sixth grade. It was yellow.) Anyways, I want a nice wool cape very badly even if it means that carrying a purse will be incredibly difficult and my arms might get very cold.

    Man, me too. I just love the look of capes. And I KNOW it’d be the single most impractical winter outerwear item I own. And I own many, far-too-wimpy-for-MN-weather coats.

    i refuse to wear traditional keep me warm coats, even in iowa weather. i actually own very few coats. but i do have a cape that i pull out when times get desperate and layers upon layers just wont do with a jacket. i always get a lot of compliments on it, i don’t think people traditionally imagine capes as viable and stylish options.
