Love a good piece of outerwear that, in itself, can be an outfit. Another plus side to this cape (or any cape, really) is the loose style allows you to go layer crazy…the perfect finishing touch on a cold October afternoon! If only I had opted for tights…

Was over the moon when I came home to find this Foley + Corinna Simpatico Clutch on my birthday! Such a sweet surprise from the sweetest of girls…big thanks to Holly and the rest of the team. ♥

    I was just crooning over the vintage cape my grandmother gave to me for fall. Definitely a closet staple. Love the chic outwear with the dainty heels. Tights would have been fab and warm, though, haha <3

    te amo,

    Love the cape! It’s perfect for Fall especially on those extra chilly days. I love the peak of the flowy dress on the bottom. So cute! Happy belated birthday!

    That’s an amazing cape – you are right about it being an outfit in itself! Creates a totally different look.

    I wish your cape was still available at Madewell… it’s gorgeous!
    I agree about the double duty outerwear. This weekend I’ll be on the hunt for an interesting, edgy coat for this fall/winter.
