Who here has seen the movie “Elf” starring Will Ferrell? If so, do you remember when he runs into his father’s office and screams out “I’m in love! I’m in love and I don’t care who knows it!!!” ???
Well, that’s me.
I’M IN LOVE!!!
…with a cape. No offense to my boyfriend…or to my beautiful heels, but I have a new love in my life.
It’s black & white and fab all over. It’s my new Donni Charm cape that I received in my latest Box of Style.
If you would have told me a year ago, hell, even a month ago that I would be in love with a cape, I would have called you crazy. I wouldn’t have known what to do with a cape. This is wonderful! The half black/half white is so unexpected and chic and the possibilities are endless in regard to styling. I have worn this straight down (you can belt it as well, if you like) and then I played around with throwing one end over the opposite shoulder and vice versa. This could be worn with jeans (as shown here), over a dress, with a sweater, throw it over a tee and a skirt…Rachel Zoe even styled this over a leather jacket (this is why she is so fabulous…just the sheer thought of doing that is genius).
Designs such as this are perfect for all ages and body types. Whether you are stick thin or curvaceous, you can look chic and feel great wearing this. I could see my teenage niece rocking this just as much as I could imagine how much my grandmother would have loved this design (she was very stylish and would have loved this). My mother also subscribes to Box of Style and I’m excited to see how she will style her cape as well (I’m imagining she’ll pair it with black dress pants, perfect for a meeting or out to dinner with my father).
The fabric is so soft and warm and I love how no matter how you style this, it drapes beautifully. I will live in this cape all Fall and definitely all Winter.
…I’m in love! I’m in love…and I don’t care who knows it!
