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!

  1. I love capes too but I can never find a good one, I’ve probably been searching for one for a few years. I adore the touch of red in your look.

  2. Hi, dear Lindsey, I hope you had a great NYE party! Happy new year! I also love capes and this one looks amazing, and in the pictures I can’t see it shining – but I have to confess that after what I read – what your husband said about graduating – I can’t take the image out of my head either 🙂 BUT having said this, I still think you look amazing and I loved this cape, I would order it, shiny or not! If I had problems with things that I ordered online… a few, yes. One that I was like arrrgh, was an expensive ring to a friend, as a present, and she thought it was too big. It was Tory Burch, via net-a-porter and I said “look, let’s give it back and order something you prefer”. She said no, kept the ring and never wore it 🙁 But OK, a present is a present. Hope you have a wonderful near year, dear Lindsey, you will have great experiences and I am eager to take part as well!

  3. As much as I love ordering online…there are those details that just don’t come across in photos! I wonder if there’s something you can do to it to get that shine off?
    Love the pop of color with the heels!!

  4. I love your red shoes, your gold link necklace, and sunnies! Your accessories really make this black outfit pop. I hope you had a nice holiday and Happy New Year dear:)


  5. Happy New Year Lindsey!! I loveeee capes too! They’re not only insanely chic, but also because of superheroes! Haha, I’m so glad that you have an infinity for superheroes too. I used to be made fun of for liking them as a kid and now it’s cool to like superheroes. Go figure lol. Anyway, I know what you mean about online snafu’s. It happens, but I hate when it does.


    1. Happy New Year to you too, Amanda! And yesssss a fellow cape-lover! For superhero reasons too! Haha. Love that I’m not the only one! I’m sorry to hear you were made fun of..I was picked on as well for it growing up. I ended up keeping it to myself until I was in college just how much I enjoyed “geeky” movies and comics as a result. It’s certainly nice that it’s becoming “cool” to enjoy these things now. Lol, weird how that works out.
