OK, no that isn’t me. And no, there isn’t a Madewell store on the Upper West Side (although there is a Mandy and Strawberry. Ugh). But I own the cape and I live on the UWS, therefore it’s worthy of a post.
I’ve been wanting a cape forever. It seems like every fashion season editors are shown flitting around in Paris at the shows looking chicer-than-thou in their capes and Louboutins. Just the word “cape” conjures up images of superheroes.
I’ve worn it a few times, to good reviews. One caveat: Carrying a shoulder bag is tricky. Plus you have no waist.
Beyond that—perfect transitional weather urban outerwear.
