Today's Special: Capes with Capes

Another take on my "new uniform" is to swap out the crazy cardigans I am wearing right now for a cape. Sometimes 2 capes. Sometimes a capish cardigan UNDER another cape, over a lace shirt and wool skirt. I mean listen guys- I AM REALLY EXERCISING FREE WILL, you know?

Camilla & Marc sent me an uh-maaayyyyyyzing soft wool camel-colored capey thing that I am putting over everything these days, when I can get away with layers instead of my enormous puffer coat (had to give in and get a +J Uniqlo; its like wearing a sleeping bag around the city. WHO KNEW YOU COULD BE WARM DURING THE WINTER?!).

But where was I? OH RIGHT:











'Anu' camel cape: Camilla&Marc // Navy blue vintage wool cardigan: Arbor Vitae Vintage // Vintage lace Peter Pan collar shirt: $1 piles at Jet Rag (like..8 years ago) // Grey wool mini: GAP // Tights: Topshop // Vintage shoes: random store in Brooklyn

Isn't the double cape thing sort of dope? I love them together. Oh and I forgot to tell you- THESE SHOES ARE INSANE. I thinnnnnk they are Halloween costume shoes? Like for some girl to dress like "Sexy PeeWee" or something. They have no label and they weigh about 3 ounces but I can't get enough of them. They were 15 dollars at some crazy tiny store on a deep side street in Wlliamsburg. It was more like a closet than a store.

Wait..can we look at them again? I mean. There's velvet on there.


I think the whole outfit was sort of unconsciously (or consciously) influenced by Proenza Schouler fall feelings..evil schoolgirl sort of feelings.


Oh! AAAND I am finally starting to get my living room in order..you got a teensy sneak peek of the wall I finally adorned...Stay tuned for a full house post soon!

I do love how capes look but I just can't get along with them, I end up faffing over what to wear with them to actually keep warm LOL! They are great though arent they, like wearing a blanket!

That cape with those shoes is so NEXT LEVEL. Definitely feeling the Proenza Schouler vibes.

See, I'm already pretty tall so when I try to wear my crazy platform or wedge shoes I end up about a head taller than most people.In conclusion, I love this outfit and I'm jealous of those shoes.

I just purchased the most glorious camel cape from american apparel. I am so excited to wear it, I feel like a nancy drew esque detective, or little red riding hood who accidently bleached her cape

Stefanie said...

Well jeez Elizabeth, you are just a very next level person!

brodie said...

Those shoes are RIDONK! I can't get my mind around a person being able to control them and, you know, not topple over as soon as they let go of the wall they're clutching for support.

PS- I CANNOT WAIT for your house post. I was once again totz psychic just yesterday after seeing Lesley's pictures from your house, and was like "I gotz ta see dat." Now it is happening. I made it happen, obvz.
