For the Love of Capes
It’s no secret that I love capes and all things flowy. I mean, I REALLY love capes. So, I couldn’t resist ordering this cape from Chic Me. Capes remind me of superheros…and well, I do love superheroes! Haha. However, I’m going to be blunt right away, this is not exactly my favorite cape.
When my husband first saw it he asked if I was graduating…because it looks similar to the shiny polyester gowns one wears at graduation. And I do have to say, it bears a striking resemblance in person. This might be why it’s not my favorite – I couldn’t get that picture out of my head after he said that! Haha. It didn’t look quite so shiny in the photo, but, things don’t always go perfectly when ordering online – right? (Although, I’ve had a heck of a run.)
I do like the cut and how long it is, though. And it was a good excuse to break out my red pumps…which I don’t get the chance to wear nearly enough. Red and black is easily my favorite color combo.
And I don’t want to knock on Chic Me too hard for this order, as I really loved my last item from them. (You can click here to see it.)
Has anyone else had any little snafus when ordering online? And how was your NYE? Let me know in the comments!

Ah, the hubbeast comments–what are we going to do with them? Your cape looks so elegant, and you look beautiful!
Thank you so much, Josie!
Ha ha… I am so inspired by SuperMan/Woman, have to do a post on skirts over leggings style. 😀
Love the cape style. They are so fun to wear and elegant to see.
I like how you styled it.
I have had my issues with online orders, luckily I could return most of them.

Do it! Haha. And thank you so much, Richa! 🙂
HAPPY NEW YEEEEAR! Hope you get everything you wish for in 2017!!
I gotta say though, I sort of love this cape. Could be that we don’t wear those black things here, but I think it’s really chic, and I love it with the red heels!!
Happy New Year, dear Mona! I hope you have a fabulous 2017 too! Haha! And thank you so much. 🙂 Much love to you too!
OMG the graduation remark, lol. Well, for the record I never would have thought of that and certainly didn’t while looking at photos both in this post and on various social media before I got to read this post! I think you look VERY chic and that pop of red in the shoes is amazing. I’ve been searching for a cape dress/jumpsuit/etc for forever and a day now, so this is very inspiring–even if it’s not your favorite! XO
Haha! I can’t get it out of my mind now! But thank you so much, Lauren! 🙂
