Cape? Zara
Jeans? Zara
Strappy boots? Charles David, thrifted
Bag? Kate Spade, thrifted
Scarf? gifted
Gloves? Steve Madden, Winners
Bangle? Permanently taken from my Mama

A cape is like the sweat pants of tops, except infinitely chicer. It's warm, cosy and roomy and let's you eat as many Doritos as you want without ever feeling anything digging into your love handles. Except, I didn't eat Doritos... I made and ate pasta loaded with vegetables. I was told by the kids we're watching for the week that it looked disgusting but then they had two servings each. They probably had no clue I put a whole package of frozen spinach in there. Suckas! I think I had my first proud 'I'm not a mom but I had a a mom moment' moment...

How cool is the lighting from a construction zone floodlight? These pictures were taken without flash (minor computer editing) late at night.

P.S. Check out Style Symmetry, she had a virtual birthday party and lots of bloggers sent in a picture of themselves in their party finery. Such a cool idea! Now, I don't even have to go out on a Friday night, I can just dress up and send off a picture... much cheaper than a bar tab and less painful than a hangover. Genius, really...

"How cool is the lighting from a construction zone floodlight?"

I was JUST thinking "How did she light that, it's awesome?"

You are so right: Capes truly are the sweatpants of the top world. And this one is so very elegant on you, doll.

Those pictures are very fabulous! You look totally comfy and chic (which is the perfect combo if you ask me!). And I LOVE that bag!

Thank you so so much for one of the nicest comments I've ever received! Though I often think of myself as somewhat goofy, you are truly elegant. This ensemble with the cape being an example. Oh and yes, I love the lighting. i was admiring that effect.

Very cool lighting. Paul wouldn't be taking pictures of me though, he would be assessing the equipment. You think you are ready for Mamahood?

I love the cape! The color is lovely on you!

Amy said...

The lighting is perfect! Maybe I should start taking my pictures in construction sites (since I work in construction)...hmmm...

Capes are the best and how did you manage to thrift that purse- is is amazing! I am telling you, you are truly blessed by the thrifting gods.

Those maternal moments are exciting/frightening. It's in those moments I realize just how much like my mother I've become! :)

Of course I love this ensemble for all of the same reasons that you do.

This is so cool! I love the cape and it's totally bad ass with those jeans. And that bag? Are you kidding? Going thrifting with you would be a great reason to visit Canada!
