**Red Cape Day**
Hello Blogging Friends! I hope this perfect week has been kind to you. While it is sad to see summer go, the lovely nip in the air, and the promises of rich, autumnal clothing do help to alleviate the "Good-bye Summer Blues".
Today I am wearing a Tocca dress that is embroidered with a "wall- paper stripe" design. It is hard to see, but the red cape I am wearing, in felted cashmere, by Zac Posen, is also embroidered in a way that compliments the dress. The dress is a simple, sleeveless column dress that is perfect for the warm days. The added red cape and gloves adds warmth when the thermometer drops almost 20 degrees at night. My burgundy bag is custom made from Italy with Pony hair and trimmed in snakeskin, I bought it years go in on eBay Italy. My crocodile pumps are from eBay, and the Cape is from RoundAbout, a high end designer re-sale shop in Manhattan. I am happy to report that my dress is also from Ebay, purchased shortly after I had seen it in Saks, at a great discount. I have had it this dress for years and its lovely design and quality workmanship continues to pay dividends to my wardrobe. This is truly the kind of dress one can own for years, even decades. I am sitting on a little bench in Manhattan that divides the Avenue where I live.
My topstitched gloves are from Bloomingdales, sunglasses are Dolce and Gabbana, and both were purchased years ago.
This cape also looks great with my new Paige jeans and my ankle strap heels, which you will soon see in an upcoming post. How do you add layers in these transitional weeks? Let me know in the comments section below and have a great few days!!
