Lately I’ve been hearing that this falls !BIG THING! Is the cape. Well, I am never good with trends. I was always picked last for dodgeball on the fashion scale. No Kardashian here.
There are of course advantages to the cape- you can make obscene gestures under it and still maintain a ladylike illusion. You are ready to cover puddles if royalty appears in your hamlet. It’s very commanding and makes people want to let you go in front of them at the Jack in the Box. I’m sure there are more advantages- you can share any that you think of in the comments.
A con would be this outfit which borders on costumey and no one has ever said in a rational moment, ‘It’s ok, I saw Carrie Bradshaw wear it’ .
During a recent pattern buying spree I sent my Hubbie/minion to the pattern vaults and he returned with this:
He also spent a few minutes bemoaning that capes were not standard dress anymore. Unfortunately, he meant for himself…..
So what do you think? Is it time to embrace the cape and be on trend for 5 minutes?
