Hello my lovely readers! I hope this Tuesday finds you in the start of a very good week. Yesterday I got dressed in a warm, furry cape as the mornings here are cool. I did some computer work and then headed outside. Before I did, I looked at the dark skies looming through my windows, and decided to check the weather. A hurricane warning was in effect until 5 PM!!, so I had my pictures taken indoors. My furry cape:
I bought this cape almost three years ago in Barcelona. I fell in love with the melange of color, and the texture of the boucle. This versatle cape is laced with different woolen yarns and shot through with rabbit fur. It goes with absolutely everything from a tweed skirt, leather skinnies and denim jeans of any variety. I wore it throughout my stay in Spain and continue to wear it often in early autumn. More shots:
You can see the yarn pretty well in the close up photo. I hope you can also see my lovely Hermes Kelly given to me by my beautiful sister years ago when I was very ill. I added the orange bag to give this otherwise monochromatic look a pop of color, and what better way, I ask you? MY skinnies are from the gap and are great everyday jeans. The gap cuts their denim so well! My combat boots are Chelsea Crew via Zulily.com and I love them because they have a sturdy tread on the bottom and enough buckles (2) to be current, but not so many that I feel like a I going to combat any time soon! They also have a 2 inch heel which I value as a teeny-tiny person.
It is a funny coincidence that I am dressed in the same color scheme as my living room, especially since 3 posts ago I seemed to have coordinated my clothes to my co op lobby! I assure you I did not plan on either.
