At first I wasn’t into the whole “cape” idea. I’m not Little Red Riding Hood and I don’t find myself in situations where donning a cape is preferable to a regular old jacket or heavy sweater. Unlike capes, sweater coats or even sweater dusters are easy to pull on and off at a moment’s temperature change. My issue with capes resided squarely in the hassle of having to pull it over your head every time you needed to take it off. It just seemed like a lot to ask. But, the more I look at them, the more I am drawn to them. I would probably only wear them when I would be outside for extended periods of time: sporting events, flea market shopping, or sightseeing. Being the traditionalist that I am, I would be more apt to purchase a camel colored or black cape in order to easily coordinate it with other items. But, you don’t have to be a boring person like moi. If you want to rock a flaming fushia cape while grocery shopping on Saturday, by all means, do it and take pictures and send them to me so I can look at you with envy.
