George Costanza: You know what this has to do with? The man in the cape. I bet you he's mixed up in this. I don't trust men in capes.
Jerry Seinfeld: You can't cast dispersions on someone just because they're wearing a cape. Superman wore a cape. And I'll be damned if I'm gonna stand here and let you say anything bad about him.
On Saturday I was on the Upper West Side, and I ran into a friend who was wearing a very cute, yet different outfit.
Yup, that's a cape. I normally wouldn't like a cape, but the way she wore hers was very classy; the handbag only added to the sophistication.
The caped fashionista said that she found her gem for a little under $100 on www.ebay.com
It's vintage, which is cool, and it had cute pockets on the front to stash gum, keys, what have you.
I think capes are perfect for this type of weather: chilly, but not too cold. But warning: wearing a cape could easily go from fashion forward to fashion faux pas. If you go searching for one, make sure it suits your style and could easily fit in your wardrobe. I did a quick froogle search and came across this Theory sweater cape at Neiman Marcus:
I also saw that Shopbop had a few ridiculously overpriced capes by Marc Jacobs and Development:
I was inspired, so bought my own small scale version of a cape:
When I wore it to work today, my boss said I looked like Sherlock Holmes.
Not necessarily the intended effect, but hey, I gave it my best:)
