Vintage Plaid Poncho Cape

You know what I really love? Capes. And cape-like coats; ponchos, shawls if you will. These items aren't worn much. Albeit, there are moments when for the dramatic flare, you'll see these for sale in haute couture lines. But, it's always seasonal, and they don't quite relate to the everyday person. I mean, we're not all Count of Monte Cristos who need to wear these when revenge is occurring. Nor are we living on a green isle where these coats look amazing against the natural backdrop. And you'd be crazy NOT to wear one there. You have to. Anyone would look great in one there, or in New Zealand with the Lord of the Rings. Okay, I'm tangenting. (◄ tangenting is NOT a word. I know...)

No, capes are a hard look to pull off.

Yet, this vintage cape is quite versatile. It's great for Fall and Winter, plus it isn't too long or overpowering to where you'll look like you just stepped out of the Victoria era. I paired it here with a modern beanie (from Closet Candy Boutique) and skinny jeans, and you've got another great outfit that mixes the old with the new and now, everyone will want to know where you got it ...
