Back in the fall/early winter, cape coats were all the rage and I absolutely loved the look and needed one. I got one for Christmas (yay!) but it was far too cold to actually get to wear it out (no yay). I wore it out to dinner this past weekend finally!
The cape coat is from the Scandal Collection at The Limited. It was quite chilly the evening I wore this coat, but I was determined to wear it anyway. Truth be told, it’s not that the coat is not warm (it is wool after all), but since there aren’t full sleeves when the weather is cold it’s not really warm enough. It was fine for getting in and out of the car though. When someone asked me that night, after remarking how stylish my coat looked, if it was warm enough I quickly answered “no”. But, as I’ve said in previous posts recently, I’m intent on phasing out the thick winter wear!
